This site is almost directly at the bottom of the farm below the farmhouse (East of Farmhouse). There are several routes there and I will give you the best one when you are arriving. 

This is a “primitive” car camping spot which is Marked “LILY POND” Site 4. 

Water can be boiled from the pond to be safe and we ask you do NOT put any soaps in the sensitive ecosystem of pond unless biodegradable. Fresh tested drinking water can be found at the spigot on the farmhouse.

There is an Port a Potty that is cleaned regularly and it has a hand sanitizer and a night light 30 yards away.

 This spot is for those who want a secluded quiet place where they bring what they need and leave no trace behind. 

 A stone fire ring will also mark your site and let us know if you would like a couple of bundles of wood (Please use ours as it prevents importing wood beetle to the forest).  Lots of kindling in the bush. Please take care with you fires and do not leave them unattended. A bucket will be there to make sure all fires are fully extinguished when you leave the site.  Fire grate provided.

Garbage container for you ... please take or leave $7 for us to pick-up.  Also 2 folding chairs, fire grate, camp soap (please leave for next guest), 2 buckets for you and whatever wood you ordered.

Enjoy a very special spot we wish to share. The wildlife here is remarkable

In Winter we Request Only AWD vehicles or there is plenty of parking up by the farmhouse for others and hike in so you can easily get out also if raining and you have 2 WD at other times of the year… usually OK unless really wet outside Winter

Great visit to Sunrise Farm this Memorial Day weekend! Site was clean, wood ready for us for our late Friday arrival and Roy was very helpful in assisting us to get right to the site.

The sites all provide some privacy, but close enough to meet people and interact. The land is beautiful and the view from the farm house is breathtaking. Dover is a fantastic area with something for everyone.

This site (#4) was fantastic
Plenty of room for 12 by 12 tent and 10 by 10 canopy with plenty of room to spare.
I'd reccomend 4 wheel drive for the sites down the hill
Hard a tough time getting back up after it rained the night before
We had a great time
Plenty of wild life to see...listen to
And plenty of space between sites down the hill
Very private

Peace and tranquility abounds! I was the only one here to start with. The gentle burble of the pond was a lovely night background sound. The peepers are just starting up. The views can't be beat.

The space is lovely and well supplied/thought out. If you need something and haven't got it chances are Roy has it available to rent. He is very amenable and the map and directions are very clear.

It was absolutely gorgeous and I would definitely go back! And the wild turkeys are a hoot.

If you don't have 4wheel or all wheel drive and really good tires, I do not advise trying to drive down the meadow at night as the grass is long but flat and dewey making it very slippery. I had difficulty even trying to turn around to go back up. Luckily nobody was camped at the first spot at the top of the hill where the picnic table was and Roy was nice enough to let me stay there for the night.
