The property was beautiful.
As promised the property was easily accessible, clearly marked and the host was very kind.
The property had ample room to set up camp and explore. Fully equipped with a fire pit and wood, a dock for enjoying the view and more.
Tim is an amazing host. Communicative and responsive. The campsite is fantastic with access to a neat little trout stream and adjacent to a state forest. The solitude was enhanced by the calls of the whip-or-wills late at night. Luzerne has showers at the IGA and good food at Ma Deeters if you don’t feel like cooking. Canoeing and flyfishing on the AuSable River is easily accessible. We will be back!
We had great time staying at Dam Beavers. The creek steps from the house was amazing - we all enjoyed it! W kayaked. It was clean, sage and had wood waiting for us. It was close to Luzerne, where we can get quick groceries and gas. We would definitely stay there, again!
Our stay at the Perfect Ten Lodge went beautifully. It’s in a lovely and secluded location with its very own creek. It was so nice to be able to relax without worry of bothering any neighbors or happening upon any people at all. Even with the wonderful seclusion afforded by this location, we were only just minutes away from an extremely well stocked gas station with absolutely anything you could possibly need. We went for hikes with our dogs, and spent time by the water. The site even had some firewood available right next to the fire pit. We could not have asked for a better camping experience than this one. Book this campsite with confidence.
Very tranquil and peaceful location. The river on the property is a great way to spend time and relax. Would recommend this location if you want to get away from the hussle and bussle for a couple of days. Luzerne is only 20 mins away if you want to rent a kayak and spend the day on the river..
