Nestled into the bedrock outcroppings is a small firepit with a space for a small tent. Hammocks are also recommended out here. At home with nature is a true backbackers resting place :) From the parking area it is a ten minute hike over a stream, up a hill and thru the woods.... Not to grandmothers house though! This site is cozy, designed for small groups and backpackers style camping. Get here early to enjoy the local fishing near by and the sunset from your camp. This site is open year round for all your leaf peeping pleasures, Thanksgiving getaways, and to fill your quota of crisp fall air or by request try winter camping in the snow!

    Wonderful spot for a quick get away. We loved the site, very clean and comfortable. The host was very accommodating and keeps up the site very well. There were many little touches that made the site a wonderful spot. The only thing that bothered us was the noise from the homes on the lake. However that was probably due to the weekend we chose to camp. Over all the site was very private and we loved it. We would love to chose this spot again soon!

    We loved the fire pit!Very comfortable site!Hammocks for rent at site.

    Great spot to escape for a bit. After a 10 minute walk, we found ourselves in a private little camping area. Trails were all over the property and a river and pond where a short distance away (maybe a mile)

    Our stay was awesome. Steve is a great host. He made us blueberry corn bread, gave us maps to the site and other nearby attractions. As he states, the site is small and is barely big enough for a 4 person tent so pack accordingly. Also, the site is up a big hill with very loose rocks so use caution when hiking up and down. The site is very secluded, he gives you gallons of water and the firewood you can buy from him is bone dry. The site has a small rock seat so no need to bring a camping chair. Very nice and cozy site but be prepared to hike a steep hill to get there.

    We had a great time at the campsite! Location was private and just a quick 10 minute hike from the parking spot. Lots of activities in the area including swimming in nearby reservoir and hiking on trails. Steven was a great host and had many helpful amenities available to rent/add-on.

    Steven was such a great host to my partner and I. He gave us written and drawn out maps of the site with trails highlighted and directions to the nearby beach. He was very welcoming and made us feel right at home. He made sure to remind us that if we needed anything to not hesitate to give him a ring for questions or anything we might need! Not only was steven amazing at being a host, he seems like a really nice guy who you can talk to with ease who is full of awesome information and is always happy to help out! We will for sure be returning to this site! Thanks again Steven!
