    Tucked under a huge aspen tree this rustic cabin was perfect! it's surrounded by red maple's and ash trees with a beautiful view of the rest of the camp. Susan our host was extremely helpful, offering us some great tips on staring a fire. Great place to relax and enjoy some peace and quite or great basecamp for exploring the surrounding area. Taughannock Falls is just a short drive away (So worth it!)

    staying at camp earth connection was healing, centering, comfortable, and easy. the aspen was tucked in the woods with a convenient fire pit, picnic table, very clean facilities, and a cot. As a woman traveling alone, I felt especially safe knowing that my host, the owner Susan, was a rad woman herself! I will definitely be back on my way home.

    We stayed one night - in the wooded cabin down the hill. Susan was extremely helpful and friendly. She greeted us upon arrival, helped us find the space, gave us wagons to take our gear down the hill, and made sure to explain the procedures of the common spaces. The family that stays there is delightful. The forest and the great big green between are a great place to bird watch and experience how beautiful the area is. We wanted to stay another night to have a fire since the rain kept us from having one the first night, but we decided we’d make another trip up in the fall and stay again. Great outdoor experience!
