The vibe at RV Camping at Moss Hill
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The farm was great. We had just left a National Park campground that was a bit crowded and loud and we were looking for seclusion--and we got it! We were booked at site #2, but we parked at the sign near site #1 to meet the host, Jed, and he suggested that we stay at that spot. The spot was just off the road but because there were no other campers, it was totally private.
I corresponded with the Jed ahead of our stay and he was very responsive and friendly. The day we were driving in there was a little bit of a snag with correspondence and Jed seemed a little terse, but it may have just been a misunderstanding due to the nature of texting.
We had no problem finding the place with GPS and Jed's additional directions. He met us at the site. He did not show us around, but pointed us to the toilet and said that there was a sign for the spring there. Everything was easy to find and we loved our stay. The woods were peaceful and we took a quick dip in the cold but beautiful spring.
We stayed at Moss Hill on a busy and beautiful weekend in June. There were a number of folks in the tent camping area, but the RV spot is further down the gravel road than the tent camping areas, offering more a bit more privacy and seclusion. The site itself was spacious and easy to back into, though we needed to unhitch to drop the nose of the trailer enough to get level.
After settling in, we hiked down to the creek to explore; the waterfalls and the pools formed below them are definitely the highlight of this campsite. While the water was too chilly for the humans to do any extended soaking, the dog went crazy and loved sinking his belly into the cool, clear pools. It’s definitely worth doing some downstream exploration to check out the landscape beyond the main swimming hole. We also took advantage of the spring-fed drinking water station and filled up a couple of jugs to hike back up the hill.
Back at the campsite, it was quiet enough to let the dog cruise around unleashed – his favorite way to camp. We did see a few dirtbikes whiz by, so keep in mind that you’re on a public access road – a little-used one, but still. We slept well in our lil’ clearing, and rolled on out in the morning.
Jed, the host, is working hard to make Moss Hill a welcoming spot in the woods for Hipcampers. Look for more trails criss-crossing this property in the future. For now, all in all, a perfectly fine place to spend the night.
Beautiful campsite! Very relaxing. A bit confusing when we arrived on where our camp site was and where to park but we arrived at night so it was dark but Jedidiah was helpful and came to meet us and show us where everything was. I'd love to come back in the warmer months to utilize the swimming hole! He even let us know that there was bad weather coming the next day in case we weren't aware. It was very thoughtful.
The weekend of June 30th 2018, was my second visit to Moss Hill Farm and it was as good if not better than the last time. Jed has done a lot of work with the trails to and from the swimming hole, marking the turns with easy to read signs, and making more campsites. this time my girlfriend and I stayed by the brook close to the bridge. it was very secluded and the sound of the water was great at night. there was a fire-pit, a grill grate, and covered firewood at the site.
The swimming hole is not to be missed and the heat wave was a perfect reason to get down there. We had it to ourselves for both Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning! It is truly spectacular on a hot day. A waterfall feeds it and the water is plenty deep enough but easy to get in and out of.
There were other campers that weekend but we only saw them during our walk to the outhouse. I look forward to my next stay there, as does my girlfriend.
This was our first hipcamp experience and a high bar has been set. Our campsite was lovely and private. Clearly Jedediah has built this site with love, creativity, and a great respect for the beauty that the natural surroundings have provided for us. We loved the natural springs water spigot and of course the swimming hole and natural waterfalls were amazing. We are road bikers and did a beautiful, but very challenging loop: up (soul-tryingly up as described by Jedediah) to Blanford, 23 west to Algarie Rd and back North Blandford Rd then enjoyed the downhill back to Moss Hill that we so deserved. We LOVED the solar shower. Jacob's Pillow was 30 minutes away and we saw amazing dance. An incredibly wonderful weekend. We would highly recommend Moss Hill Farm. You will be welcomed warmly, yet given all the privacy you want. With plenty more to check out in the area, we will be back again.
We had a wonderful stay at the Moss Hill campground! The host was so friendly and attentive. The sites are secluded, quiet and well maintained. There are hiking trails near by and just a short walk to a beautiful swimming hole with waterfalls. A perfect weekend of R&R. Would definitely stay again but hopefully longer next time!
Moss Hill Farm exceeded all of our expectations!
There were several sites to choose from, all of which provided ample privacy. We chose the one that was most in the open as we were staying for a short time and had a ton of things in our car but still felt that we were alone. There is potable drinking water a short walk away and a compost toilet. About 10-12 minutes through the woods there is a private (only open to guests) magical waterfall and swimming hole that you could spend hours at. It's not crowded (even with other campers) and we had the area to ourselves most of the time. It's great to wade it or read by and there are already a few chairs there.
The farm is great and it was cool to see everything that is growing there. Jed offered us some produce and we even took some squash blossoms to make this super easy treat: https://www.loveandoliveoil.com/2015/06/goat-cheese-stuffed-fried-zucchini-blossoms.html
There are also two mountain bikes available and ton of biking and hiking trails to take advantage of.
Host wise, Jed was great. He accommodated our late arrival and showed us the lay of the land. Very appreciative of him! :)
Overall, a 10/10 and we hope to be back soon!
