Fort Danby is a small forest area off the back of a large hill/yard, a little corner of the Danby State Forest. It is immediately next to the Finger Lakes Trail, so there are miles of public woods to hike. The site is a cozy little area, perfect for popping up a tent or two and cooking over a campfire.

Primitive camping area similar to backcountry state land camping (visitadirondacks.com/camping/backcountry-camping-rules-guidelines). No hot water or electricity, but there is a portable/camp toilet, a suspended shower bag, and  a few gallons of fresh water provided. We are on-site (but out-of-sight) if there's anything we can help you with specifically.

Thanks, and let us know if you have any suggestions, comments, particular interests, or priorities in improving our lot!    :)

The site was very clean, safe, and pleasant.
Tracy and her family were great in helping us with anything we needed and they let my brother and I camp at a spot they hadn't expected anyone to camp at. They even supplied us with freshly gathered fire wood and a gallon of fresh drinking water!
I will definitely stay again if it fits my travel schedule.

We had a great time! It was a quiet site and wasn't too secluded. Tracy, the owner, was very nice and helped us with everything we needed. It's way cheaper than other ithaca campsites and gave us everything we needed.
