Ron & Laura were AWESOME hosts! They greeted my boyfriend when he arrived to set up and gave him a tour of the property, which is beautiful. Campsite 1 was great, right on the river. We saw ducks and even were visited by a beaver during the night. The composting toilet was clean and they had stocked firewood for us. The location was close enough to town to grab supplies when we decided to stay an extra night but felt more remote. I think next time we would choose campsite 2, just because it is closer to the potty and you can make your tent a little more secluded.

Overall, we were very happy with our stay and will definitely be camping there again!

Bonus: They have very friendly pups!!

My friends and I had an incredible time staying mostly at Site 2. I would definitely recommend booking Sites 1 and 2 for a large group (and so affordable!). It was very easy to pull in so friends could come and go, you have river access, a compostable toilet, and lots of room for dogs to roam!

And so much I could say about the incredible hosts Ron and Laura (and their pups Ted and Shaggy). They immediately gave me a tour of their 90+ acre property of trails and river access and offered to help in any way possible throughout the weekend. They graciously offered us coffee, access to their pond, kayaks/paddle boards, and even had happy birthday table cloths on the picnic tables (we were celebrating my birthday, so thoughtful!). My friends and I just felt so special, safe, and welcome!

A couple of things to know is that there isn't easy access to drinking water (although the hosts offered to let us fill up at their house which isn't too far), and those with Verizon service do not have service at the site (Which I appreciated the break from!). Definitely our new favorite spot!

Clyde River is great for kayaking/paddleboarding/floating! You can also rent kayaks nearby/Lake Willoughby about 15 minutes away, the most beautiful lake in VermontHammock with an incredible view at the edge of the property.The dogs playing with one of our dogs at the pond on the property!

Ron & Laura were great hosts during our stay. We loved how we had morning coffee and breakfast with the view of river. We would definitely stay there again.

Easy pull up to campsite.  Plenty of firewood to enjoy your refreshment next to river view. 🏕🔥🥾🏔🍻
