Mike was an amazing host! The property is beautiful, and he has created nice private camping spots with great amenities (picnic table, chairs, fire pit, portable toilet, etc.). He is very easy to communicate with, and we had a great time!

What a perfect spot!! Yes, you'll need 4WD or AWD to reach it, but you're going up a grassy grade, it's not rock crawling so don't be intimidated. But when you get up to the site, its a beautiful open area with a firepit and a toilet is a respectable distance away. The views are phenomenal, and no photo is going to capture them. I walked the 1.5 miles down to the lake for a swim at the state park and it was beautiful! This place is truly a gem and I'll be back. I should also point out that the property owner Mike is very knowledgeable and helpful. His wheelbarrows full of firewood are right there on hand and you can Venmo him if you don't have the cash so you don't have to worry about missing out on the campfire. Lastly, if you're lucky enough to get invited for pizza from Mike's pizza oven on Saturday night, do not say no. Its delicious!

Great and fun stay! If you are there on the weekend, the pizza is amazing. The site was beautiful and quiet and secluded. We enjoyed the park across the way. Great firewood available. If you get a chance, say hi to Mike because he is a really cool guy!

Mike has set up some awesome private camp spots each with its own spectacular view. Amenities are as described and would definitely stay here again. Only catch is if you don’t have at least AWD you’ll have a tough time getting to the camp site.

GREAT site with total privacy and terrific view of the mountains over the tree tops. Parked the truck just right that I didn’t even need to level it to use the roof top tent. Comfortable furniture, a nice fire ring, and well-maintained grass made for a stress-free evening and morning with our dogs.

Mike was quick to respond when we, inadvertently, headed to the wrong site, but it all worked out. Chopped firewood was readily available and those chickens were looking for a handout! HA!

Would love to return if our journey bring us that way, again, and take advantage of the surrounding area!

We felt like we were the only ones for miles. It was so quiet. The views of the mountains were so beautiful. We had an awesome weekend relaxing, playing our games & sitting around the campfire.
We even made pizza in the owner's pizza oven, with some appreciated assistance.
We feel lucky to have stumbled upon this gem and thank Mike for sharing his slice of heaven.

Mike and his sweet family are devoted farm stay hosts. They offer an authentic experience on a beautiful piece of Green mountain farm land. The Valley view from our cite was spacious and beautiful with wild flowers and misty mountains off in the distance. The delicious weekend pizza offering was topped with their own veggies, and sauce, and sure hit the spot on our first night, giving us time to set up our camp. We did a fun Battenkill river paddle and hiked part of the AT. It’s a great location. We would definitely come again and will tell our friends about Mike.

Hipcamper Zach

My stay here was absolutely amazing! Mike was a great host with plenty of amenities offered! more than i even needed. While he stayed distanced to ensure you get the best camping opportunity possible, he was also very helpful and made sure i had what i needed. Fire wood very affordable and just the perfect amount for my 2 night stay! The views are breath taking and they don’t get old! even with a little rain! This was just what i needed!
