We had a pleasant stay and the woods and brook and field were beautiful, thank you! The downside was the trucks out on 91 were pretty loud all through the night and there was some detritus at the campsite.
Beautiful spot in an ideal location
Our site (#2) was situated in a beautiful stretch of woods at the edge of the Birdhous field. The area was quiet and well kept with easy access to Lake Willoughby, Crystal Lake, Parker Pie, and other attractions.
A couple of notes to consider so you're not surprised:
The two composting toilets are part of the same stall and are situated right on the shared trail in very close proximity (eyeshot) to one of the sites. There's a divider between the two toilets and tarp curtains for privacy but a cutout in the back of the stall means folks can see the back of your head. It's a marked improvement from wilder-pooping but not for the timid.
As others have commented site #2 is a little tight. I managed to fit two two-person tents but it was snug. If you have a group any larger than say 3-4 people I'd look at one of the other sites.
Don't rely on the firewood kiosk for wood. There's a limited supply and you'd be better off stocking up from both Birdhous and some of the local roadside spots.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and would gladly recommend Birdhous to other hip campers. The sites are private, the location is serene, and you can't beat the NE Kingdom.
Exactly what we hoped for!
We had an amazing time camping at this site! The photos looked exactly like the camp site and the place was covered with beautiful wild flowers on the walk up! It was so lush and peaceful, we really felt like we were in the middle of the woods!
The site is on a beautiful property and nicely situated in a clearing in the woods. The view from the hill the campsite is on is beautiful. There is a short, steep walk uphill from the parking area to the campsites. To campsite 3, it was about 1/8 mile. There was no table at the campsite, but there was enough flat space for the tent and great hammock trees! The sites are close enough together that you could see each other and shout to each other, but we weren't disrupted by the other campers. The composting toilets are placed right on the main walkway to all three campsites and there is little privacy, so if you're a shy pooper you might need to find a different spot. We thought we'd get firewood at the campsite, but there wasn't any, so we ended up buying some at a nearby store. Overall a beautiful and peaceful spot.
We really wanted to like this place but we’re super disappointed. Upon checking in I called the host, we were unsure if we were in the right spot since it was so overgrown. Never got a text or a call back. The compost toilets were 3/4s full, I ventured over to site 2 and could barely find the fire pit beneath the weeds, just a complete lack of any maintenance or oversite. Lake willoughby is beautiful down the road, you can camp for free in the state park and have a much better experience. We’ve had great luck with hip camp in the past and this was not in line with past experiences.
