MIller's Mill is a magical place, the Mill was built in the 1850's and has a warm feeling to it. The property is beautifully hilly forested terrain with a brook running through it. You can hike the along the brook from your campground or jump in a wonderful swimming hole if you like refreshingly cool water. 


As of this spring (2018) we have three campsites, one at two falls, and two across the brook by Ryan's Rocks. The site at two falls is right by our swimming hole, down a little path below the sawmill. It is in a private little gorge with the campsite about 25' from the brook so you will lulled to sleep by the sound of running water. 


The two sites by Ryan's Rocks a little short hike down to the brook where you can cross by zipline, wade, or walk across a fallen log a little further downstream. These sites are tucked in between Ryan's Rocks and the brook. The ground is soft for all sites and here again you'll be sleeping only 20' or so from the brook.


For a glamping option check back as we will be putting up tipi's by Ryan's Rocks.

This place was amazing! Swig was such a gracious host and the booking process was flawless. His responses to messages were quick and he had all the answers I needed without me having to ask the questions! The weather called for severe storms and we were going to cancel but he offered up his awesome old sawmill on the property for us to use to pitch our tent in and we are glad we did. We fell asleep to the sound of the small falls out back and woke up to the sound of the resident barn swallow that had its nest right above our tent :) Not the true tenting experience but definitely exceeded our expectations for the night. Swig gave us the grand tour of the property as well as a brief history about the place. The view from the side of his house is amazing. We checked out the campsites in the morning and they are right next to the water. You can zipline across the river or cross the shallow water on foot to get to one of them. Super cool. There are many moss covered rocks as well as cairns and the landscape is gorgeous. We came across some orange newts along the way and some interesting animal tracks along the water. There is a secluded swimming hole next to a couple small falls as well. The water is crystal clear. Swig described this place as magical with a great vibe and he was spot on. He also invited us in for a drink and some great conversation. He's a seasoned traveler with so many amazing stories and he is also a great artist! His work truly reflects his talent for sure as you will see many examples of his artistry on the property. He gave us great recommendations for hiking, entertainment and local flavor. We are already planning another trip back here.

Swig was great, The campsite was amazing. Right next to a gushing waterfall. Bring some blankets with you so you can sit on the rocks and logs while you have a campfire on your private riverside beach !

If you’re thinking of staying here, do it! The pictures are beautiful but they truly do not compare to the pure magic this place is. My boyfriend and I stayed at the two falls site with our two dogs. The river was just what we were looking for and the swimming hole was very refreshing. Our tent was pitched about 25 feet from the beach where we set up our camp chairs and had a fire. Swig was extremely inviting and very thoughtful. He had two citronella candles, a big grill lighter and a fresh can of heavy duty bug spray ready for us upon arrival. He came out to greet us all and did a quick tour as we were losing daylight. The first night pitching our tent was very buggy, but the spray helped a lot. Our second night there we barely saw any bugs, so it seemed to be hit or miss!

Before accepting our booking, Swig messaged me to let me know he had a couple of friends coming over during the weekend to work on an art project. I really appreciated that! We were absolutely ok with extra company and came anyway, we are glad we did! Our site was private and we were not bothered at all while they were working. We all did share a nice swim together and we were invited up for a fire. While we were on our way out we were invited to walk down by the main house that was surrounded by Swig’s art sculptures and wildflowers, with the gorgeous river flowing behind it. We were sent off with some fresh wildflowers and fun memories. Joey, the pups and I truly look forward to coming back here - you feel like you’re in another world!

Thank you for sharing your space with us!

Host - Swig was extremely friendly, welcoming and courteous during our stay. He gave us a lay of the land when we arrived on Friday, walking us to the site and recommending activities to partake in both on and off the property. We hung with him a bit on Saturday as he and a friend ventured down to the stream to cool off and again on Sunday as we were leaving. Overall great host with a great name.

Space - Swig's land provides an artistic atmosphere within a rustic New England property. His house sits the farthest away from the entrance, with three dated barn like structures sprinkled on the property. Various sculptures of different mediums reside throughout the space, giving the property a unique feel. The actual campsite sits down a hill next to a rocky stream, mini waterfall included! To arrive at the site, you must walk down the decently sloped hill, but a rock footpath provides more than enough support to make the walk doable without much exertion. As you descend the path to the stream, you truly gain a sense of the rocky oasis that presents itself. It was definitely unexpected and awesome to experience.

Miscellaneous - Bugs weren't terrible but definitely present.
-It rained the day before we arrived, but being so close to water makes it a bit difficult to find firewood
- The rush of the waterfall is a bit noisy but constant, almost like a natural white noise
-Sandals/Water shoes are probably a good idea if you plan to take a dip
-Northampton is an easy 20 minute drive if you feel like spending some time away from the site.

Great place, well worth the drive! We camped at site 1, a secluded spot next to the waterfall and mill river. Clear, cold water, perfect for wading and hiking downstream. Easy places to set up your tent and stove, and a circle of stones near the water for a fire pit. We loved the sound of the rushing water at night, great for sleeping. Swig is a gracious and generous host, busy at work on fantastic outdoor sculptures and other projects. We would definitely come back another time.

What an amazing, magical place. My girlfriend must have said that we needed to come back to Swig's place at least 5 times within the first hour we were there. The water was crystal clear, and so refreshing and cleansing. The site was beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. I cannot recommend this place enough.

Amazing and secluded site. I booked when Swig was not home and he was gracious Enough to still let me and my friend camp. The two falls site has a very back woods northern feel. The site is positioned at the bottom of a gorge, with only a short hike down. In the snow it was a bit difficult but non the less we found the hike down easy.

Sitting by the water around a fire watching the moon illuminate the forest and the water from behind the trees was a surreal experience. Very very happy with the site.
