This place was a Godsend! The site was even better than expected and the pit toilet was pristine. The vibe of the place was so serene and there was plenty of space and privacy. This part of New York is wonderful and Potsdam, a 5 minute drive away, is a charming town. Dale and Mary Ellen, the hosts, are beautiful souls that I was blessed to have met. I highly suggest staying here!

This was a truly special experience, so much more than just a place to camp. The setting was beautiful. Very private and remote, but not at all difficult to access. The host, Dale, was such a kind man, and we could tell he really cared and wanted us to have everything we needed to make it a positive experience. He was very knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to chat with him and hear about the history of the land. I wish I could have stayed longer, and I hope the site stays available for future trips. Highly recommended!

This is the best one I have found yet. The host traveled the country with his wife in a van back in the day. He knows how to treat guests coming off the road. He has setup something special at this little meadow hidden in his chunk of forest. I wish it was in a spot I could stop more often. I was able to ride my Harley right up to the spot. Nice firepit, seating, outhouse. This place is a real gem, and the host was as friendly and welcoming as possible. I wish he stayed for a beer. He sets the bar very high for other camps. The maintain their land extremely well and take pride in it, it shows.

Such a joy camping at the Hidden Meadow. Dale was the best host! We got very delayed getting to our campsite and Dale was in constant communication with us the whole time. When we got there, it was dark and very cold. He gave us plenty of firewood and made sure we had light from his shed to set up camp.

The campsite had a great set up. There was a platform to set up our tent (which was SO GREAT, because the night we camped the temperature dropped to the low 30's). The outhouse was a few steps away from the campsite which was really easy to get to on a cold night. It's also one of the cleanest outhouses I've used!

Dale also came out in pouring rain to see us off. We were on a road trip to through New England and he told us places we could stop at. Just the wonderful host and a great place to camp!

Hidden meadows is our favorite spot to go camping. Its so close to our school and truely a hidden gem. The host's property has tons of places to explore and enjoy. Even better, the campsites are always nicely upkept, restrooms clean, chairs and firewood avaliable, and free of trash. Dale and his wife are friendly people who enjoy the outdoors as much as you do. Its a must see place that never disappoints!
