We loved the site, Tim the site owner was quick with his responses and easy to communicate with. The views and atmosphere was great. The minor drawbacks was the pond was a little low from a recent drought, and during the day & early evening we heard some drag racing. There was some glass around the site, but we cleaned some of it up so our pup wouldn't get scratched. Overall, very pleased with our first hipcamp outing, we will be reaching out to Tim again :)

We stayed on Tim's land for a bachelor party and it was perfect! I was nervous at first that we wouldn't be able to be rowdy/ridiculous like a dozen guys celebrating their friend's upcoming wedding would like to be. But upon arrival, Tim literally told us "you can do whatever you want back here" short of burning down the forest.
The property is huge - far more than you could explore even if you had a few days to do it. It's the genuinely rustic camping experience, but civilization is 20 minutes away if you need to, say, go to walmart for a couple hatchets so you can cut down a tree.
Tim was very available before our reservation date with any questions/issues. He met us on arrival, showed us around a little bit and then let us run loose. I wouldn't be surprised if I use his land again in the future.

I don't' wanna be rude, but the fact is Cedar Creek ruin my vacation. On that day, when my kids cried and asked me why we need to back to home, I'm speechless. We spend 1.5 hours went to the exact location Hipcamp told me, but only found a dead end road. We drive around more than 1 hours to find a route to the campsite but failed. We made 5 calls and 1 email but no one replied(until 5:30 when we already on our way home).
We spend time, money and emotion, I don't know how you could compensate our lost.
Anyway, my suggestion for Hipcamp is, please write the notice for campers, the owner will send more detailed location before the trip date, if not, please send the msg to ask as early as possible. Don't make this happen again.

I thought it was a fluke the first time, but it's just the norm. The first time we went we were unable to get the site we had booked (note: the map and site #s are totally inaccurate) and there was a large group of guys shooting bow and arrows and partying loudly. They had taken up 2 or 3 sites (and the field in between) and blocked off access to at least one other more secluded camp site. This time, the exact same thing was the case. We were crowed near loud partying group blocking us from the site we had booked in the woods, forcing us to camp near where their 5+ cars were parked. The host did absolutely nothing despite being notified immediately. We had driven 2 hours to get there so we made the best of it...we were not pleased yet again.

Two friends and I stayed here for a few days. The property is large and tons of space to explore and play. It was a nice break from NYC (and a short drive), the sky was much clearer, mostly quiet too. You definitely feel secluded in the hayfield. There are a few different spots to camp at. We decided to stay by the creek which was low from the drought but still beautiful.
We are already talking about our next trip down.
Tim (the host) met us at the gate and showed us around and let us use some of the wood laying around for our fires which was nice.

This camp site is strictly Primitive. There is nothing other than trees, land and lake water to rely on here. It is the perfect setting for a real camping trip! Tim, the host, was very inviting and is knowledgeable of his land while showing us around. The lake looks dried up in Google maps but let me be the first to say that the lake is not dry. It is full and the owner stocks it with different types of fish. We didn't bring any fishing poles this time but you better bet the next time, we will! Overall, I am rating this direct booking site 5 stars out of 5.

beautiful scenario! very tranquil and relaxing watching the ripples of the lake.  Tim, the host, is very friendly and knowledgeable of his land.  Very kind of him to offer the resources of the land for our use (firewood). This place is awesome!You can pitch in an open area or wooded areas, there a few different spots within the property you can set up camp.

Ceadar Creek was spectacular. We visited on a pretty cold weekend and it was a pleasant adventure. We were able to bring our dog to this Hipcamp and he really enjoyed exploring the land. As it was still winter we were the only people at this site. Tim was very helpful in waiting to meet us but due to the cold we never crossed paths. However, if we needed him (which we didn't) he was only a cell call away. The land is very gorgeous and wonderous to explore. It's only a 40 min drive frome Philadelphia, so it's a easy place to head to, out of the city. We will definitely be making trips back here regularly. If you have time check this spot out for sure!

Camp Fire Kabobs are the BEST!This was a beautiful view with delightful coffee in hand.Heading to fish on a cool day. Follow us on instagram at AdventuresWithChaco to see more pictures of our cute Hound Mix Dog, Chaco!

Cedar Creek was amazing! We went up with 4 people and 3 dogs on a 4th of July weekend, Tim met us when we arrived and showed us around the property. We were the only ones there so we were allowed to set up camp wherever we wanted. The sites are tucked back into the woods far away from any other residences or roads but were still accessible by car, we were able to pull our vehicles right up to the campsite and unload. We set up our tents and a fire pit right alongside the pond and were able to go kayaking a bit in the pond, and there are larger rivers about a 10 minute drive from the site. We stayed for about 4 days and Tim stopped by once or twice to see how everything was going, really nice guy. Would highly recommend staying here, it was a great weekend and we had the whole place to ourselves. 10/10

This was not a good experience.
- PLEASE NOTE THAT NOT ALL THE SITES AT THIS PROPERTY ARE NEAR THE WATER AS PICTURED IN THE HOST PHOTOS!!!! The water is walking distance from all the sites, but the other sites are just woods sites. Nothing fancy at all. The water was low tide when we arrived.
- The address provided on the hip camp website was not accurate. After we booked, only the street name and town were provided. So when we arrived, it was not clear where we had to go.
- The Host was very nice when we called him, and he let us know how to actually get to his property...which is important
- when we arrived, our camp site was unmarked. Even though the host helped us with directions, we were still u clear where we were to go.
- To our horror, there was broken glass scattered throughout our site. There was used wood in the fire pit (no wood for the guests), sports toys and plastic everywhere. We assumed this was left from the last guests, but we also figured that no one comes to really clean the site in between stays. (There was also no hand sanitizer in the port a potty).
- The distance between the camp sites was great. We could still hear the neighbors because they were loud. But besides that, it felt private enough.
-With that said, this experience is absolutely not worth $100/night. I have camped all over the world dozens and dozens of times and this experience was the worst and the most expensive.
We won’t be coming back but we hope our reviews will help both the host and future guests. This place has a TON of potential.
