These two campsites are across the wooden bridge and up a short-yet-steep hill. You will be able to park at the barn and walk to the campsites. These sites are right by the creek (#2 off to the left, #3 off to the right) and have quite a few options for how you want to setup your camp. The walk to your vehicle (and the communal area) is only a minute or two! You will have plenty of privacy and may camp right in the meadow or nestle in amongst the trees.

We have over 100 acres of wooded land with 4 large meadows, hiking trails and a creek flowing through. Our land connects to hundreds of acres of state land. We are near the world famous Sax-Zim Bog and have many species of wildlife to watch for! Deer, wolves, coyotes, black bear, bobcats, magpies, bald eagles and more have all been spotted (by us!) on or near our land.

Our barn and outhouse are available for campers to use. The barn is a rustic log barn from the late 1800s and is part of the original farmstead. Inside you will find a picnic table and maps of the property. There is running water available here, although it is not potable. The barn is very clean: it does not house animals and has not housed animals in over 30 years.

You will find several hiking trails that may also be used for snowshoeing in the winter. There are quite a few locations for camping, too: the meadows, along the creek, and out in the woods.

There is very little light pollution in our area, which means AURORA BOREALIS! There are several excellent locations to capture the Northern Lights and night sky.

We have a fenced in area for pets to roam unleashed. When not in this fenced area, however, we do require pets to be leashed.

Our campsites are closed for the entire month of November. Winter camping here is chilly: we regularly have temperatures fall below 0 degrees Fahrenheit at night.

Campsite #1 is wheelchair accessible! It is also near the barn and parking. Campsites 2 and 3 are across the creek (there is a lovely bridge to walk across) and up the bank, providing a little more privacy at the cost of a short walk. Campsite #4 is perfect for an RV.

Please be aware that we are close to the railroad tracks. The trees do break up the sound a lot, but you will still hear the trains going by. Trains typically do not run between midnight and 6 am, although it occasionally does happen.
