Enjoy peace, nature, and agriculture while overlooking your own private lake. 500 contiguous acres to explore on this working farm that has been in the family since 1797. We are a small family farm that has a hidden lake and 100 year old orchard at which camping provides privacy and freedom while still being a short walk or drive to amenities. Someone will always be at the main house about 3/4 of a mile away for any of your needs. Campers can park at the farm and take a small SUV to the camping area or can drive your own vehicle out if preferred. We are just a mile north of Seneca lake providing easy access to Geneva and the many wine trails.

this is basic camping area with no hookups but an electric generator is available. There is a dock, fishing, table and deck,,, firepit area and firewood a few different flat mowed areas where you can pitch a tent. There are no bathrooms or running water.

Hidden Gem quite literally fits its name entirely. The campsite exceeded our expectations, as well as the kindness and assistance Emory and his family provided us. We were so happy to have one less stop on the way up, as he was able to provide us some tasty ground beef and fresh eggs from his farm! The site is a gorgeous little slice of paradise, extremely well nested towards the back of his property with ample space to spread out. You also cannot beat having your own private lake with dock included. Emory was generous enough to provide some essential supplies, as well as a generator upon request. He also proactively asked our second day there if we needed any assistance. We had beyond the best time, and we will absolutely be back to Gem Lake!

No light pollution from nearby Geneva! You can see the moon and 2 planets here.Hidden Gem LakeBeautiful super private lake to ourselves with breathtaking sunsetsWe were totally set for firewood for the weekend!! Enough bush also to easily get the fire started in the area!!
