This was a great camping site! The host made sure the site was well prepared and sent important information as my booking date got closer. The pond was also pretty cool if you are looking for a nice place to to swim. It does get colder at night so I would plan to carry blankets that can keep you warm!

Definitely a great spot to relax and kick back. Tent was a great set up. Wood heater worked great. Pond was a good size. Overall an excellent experience.

We had a great stay! Nice clean site and adjacent to public land for exploring. We were able to see the owner's house from the site but in the summer with the leaves grown in you would not be able to. Other than greeting us, the owners left us to ourselves. The site is a little bit of a trek up / down hill from where you park so just keep that in mind when packing the kitchen sink. We were provided a little wheelbarrow cart which helped.

Great campsite, very private and well kept. It got pretty cold but there is a wood burning fire stove that gets the tent pretty warm. The area is beautiful and I highly recommend!

This site was very private and peaceful. It is tucked away from the main house and you have full privacy. The hosts were wonderful and checked to make sure we had everything we needed. The tent was beautiful and we could hear the wildlife in the distance at night. The pond has a gorgeous view and it was truly a great place to escape for a few nights

The site was beautiful but Mother Nature had plans to cut our visit short. We had some heavy rain and got a few leaks - to be expected with a canvas tent and an easy fix (wax on the seams). Don’t over pack you don’t need a lot, we made this mistake. The pond is a don’t miss item. The air mattress is very comfortable. If you go you will enjoy yourself.

My partner and I had a wonderful time at Mark's campsite in upstate NY. The space was beautiful and private, and came equipped with everything we needed (solar showers, compost toilet, firewood, water, folding chairs, etc.). We especially loved sitting on the deck in the Adirondack chairs. There was also plenty of wildlife!
