Before booking it is required you call and speak to your host. This site is NOT for the faint of heart. It is WILD. You will be the ONLY campers on this 10 acre site. There are bears, bobcats, raccoons, fox, whitetail deer, possums, squirrels and even Rattle snakes. Your host will give you a mandatory speech on how to conduct yourself to remain safe. You will need to cross a shallow stream to access the site. Pitch your tent next to a babbling brook or up on the mountain side covered in ledge rock overhangs, forest, caves and dens. This is a primitive site and you'll see few if any other people during your stay at camp. There are nearby camps busy on the weekends. Wildlife is at home here so bring your camera. There is so much to do from hiking to Jensen's ledges to fishing or floating the river. Then scenic Delaware offers great fishing and kayaking opportunities.. For a reasonable donation to cover your hosts time he can lend you kayaks,paddles and pdf for a great self guided float trip. He can drop you off and pick you up. Or if you would be more comfortable he can accompany you on your trip. Robert is NOT a registered guide in New York. He is however an accomplished outdoors-man and wilderness kayaker. You can bring your mountain bike, motor bike or 4x4 and ride the trails. Or just kick back and do nothing at all. Please you must call your host before booking. For an even wilder Wilderness experience ask Robert about his Alaskan Wilderness Expedition schedule for 2019 before the season books.

Was an awesome 3 days in the woods. We intended to hike, but we ended up just lazing around the campsite for an entire 3 days hahaha. I set a new max range on archery target shooting.
Great place for both primitive and cabin camping. Fantastic outhouse. There are neighbors with dogs that get a little excited for the first few hours about your presence, but they chill out. There are also working farmers that have equipment in the area. Just be aware there will be some human sounds.
That said, we saw no other humans in 3 days, which was wonderful. Would highly recommend if you aren't quite ready for deep backwoods with the bears, but have no interest in public campgrounds with 50 other people.
