We thoroughly enjoyed camping at The Edge! Kevin put a lot of effort into this place. Signs are professionally done. The outhouse is the best I have ever used. Cold running water, soap, and paper towels are provided . A storage area to keep the griddles etc out of the weather.
What we really liked was the swing over cooking grate. We didn't even get our camp stove out of the car.
The camp sites are private and have their own fire rings and picnic tables.
This would be a great place to have a family or group gathering.
We chose to set up our tent on site 3 which looked out on the shared area with the awesome cooking ring.
We did not have problems with mosquitoes.
The only tiny improvement I would suggest would be a hook to hang stuff from in the outhouse.
Wish we could have stayed longer!

The best outhouse ever!Breakfast over the fire. The coffee pot is ours.The EdgeThe Edge

I made a last minute reservation and it was really easy. My only complaint is I didn't realize the highway was so close. Bring earplugs.

Cute site! Loved being surrounded by fields and fireflies at dusk. The only downside was bugs. If you stay here in the summer, I'd suggest plenty of bug spray and a hammock instead of a tent.

Walked up the short trail and was surprised at how spacious the campsite was. There are string lights above the fire pit, campfire supplies and wood, a clean outhouse and several tent spaces. Nice view overlooking some farmland. 10 minutes from Rochester and across from the airport. I will definitely be back.

Came prepared to camp with nothing there. Was so happy that Kevin provided not only tent pads and picnic benches but also firewood, a maul to split it with, and OVERHEAD MOOD LIGHTING!

Great site! Just book it already!

I wish i could post a picture of this diamond in the rough. You can see alot of thought went into it. Its one of those places that you can go to just to get away. We used it to have easy travel distance to hike but decided to just stay there for the night instead and hiked the next day. The view is beautiful. I cant say enough about the set up. Cant wait to go there again.

Beautiful little campground south of Rochester! There is a very scenic view off of the main area, a very clean, well-lit outhouse, camping supplies, firewood, and picnic tables. This would be a great place to go with a group because of the communal area with a large fire pit, multiple tables, and grill
