I am from SC but travel the US in my van to camp . I picked this property because it was new and my friends live close by . I had planned on sleeping in my van but this wasn’t the case here and thought it may be good to try something different because I was excited to see the views .
You have to park in the lower lot when you arrive at the property and hike up to the top. We all had back packs so it wasn’t a big deal . 10-15 minute hike to the top wasn’t that easy but definitely doable ( bring water ) as I was hiking I was regretting picking this property but once we got the the top it was breath taking and rewardable and glad I picked this place . The views are amazing ( understatement) and this is exactly what I wanted to see in Vermont . The owner was very responsive to my questions and my recommendations. He will be adding some small add ons like a table and chairs and fire pit.
If you’re looking for great views and privacy then you’ll love this place . I will be booking again in the fall .

An absolutely breathtaking spot for primitive camping. My husband, dog and I spent a night here and loved it. Be forewarned, the hike up is steep and very rocky - hiking boots with ankle support would be recommended if you don’t want to twist an ankle! But the views are so worth it once you huff and puff your way to the top! We were there on a clear night with no moon, so we enjoyed seeing the Milky Way overhead with shooting stars and fireflies and singing bullfrogs. Vermont at its best!

Cannot recommend this enough for a primitive camping experience in vt. The sunset over Mount Hoar (ish) was incredible and so was the starry sky. There weren’t really any trees to set up a hammock, but there was enough scrub to find kindling for the fire. The small pond looked pretty clear and although I didn’t go for a swim, my pup Buster enjoyed cooling off after the haul up. The hike up was definitely worth the incredible views, but I do recommend wearing supportive shoes because of the loose rocks on the path. It ended up raining on us in the morning but it was still very cool to wake up in the clouds and the site or the trail down didn’t get particularly muddy even after a couple hours of rain.

Anthony was also extremely helpful when we managed to get lost (pulling onto the street before mill lane). He was extremely responsive and sent pictures and a description of where to pull in. For the record, the spot is on mill lane after you go over the dirt bridge and the railroad tracks on the right.

This spot is also only a 20 minute drive to the south end of lake willoughby. At the camp store you can buy snacks, water, sandwiches, but also enjoy the day on the beach or rent a kayak and paddle around Vermont’s greatest treasure. And the nude beach is thru the woods on the left of the main beach if you are into that sort of thing!

Again, definitely recommend this to anyone who is down for a workout before their s’mores and doesn’t want to stay at a crowded campsite.
