Pitch your tent anywhere of your choosing on our expansive 306 acre timber farm.  As you drive up the main entrance, you will find a plethora of wildlife viewing opportunities. Park at the staging area and find many trails (some maintained, others abandoned.) Great for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing. There is approximately 1 mile of river frontage carving through the property, which boarders the Adirondack State Park on three sides. Relax at night by the fire or take an evening dip in the creek. Enjoy your stay, as your time at Holcomb Timber Farm, and the freedom that comes with private property camping.

has mixed feelings towards this listing.

August 26th, 2018

First off I had a difficult time finding the place! Very frustrating especially when driving through mountainous areas with little to no cell service except for a tiny area with some service every 20mins drive or so! I finally asked some neighbors and I was indeed at the right place but there were NO signs, except after driving deep into the woods, after a hundred feet or so was the chain gate with a sign saying private property. Zero response from the host even after several phone calls, an email, and a message through Hipcamp.

As for the property itself, it’s really just a dense forest area. Lots of trees and a ton of brush! The spots could certainly use at least a little clearing of the brush(not the trees), maybe some goats could accomplish brush clearing without heavy machinery.

The dirt road becomes less road and more dirt the further you drive, so keep in mind what kind of car you have(a Jeep or similar off road vehicle would be ideal for this)

A very primitive site. The first campsite area was littered, broken table and pieces of wood lying around, lots of littered pieces from what seems like target practice...

On the upside, it was completely private! I liked the private and primitive nature of it. Definitely needs a couple small but well marked signs so you know where you are/ where you’re going. The hosts directions were somewhat helpful.

I read on the listing that there was a stream on the property, and at the end of my campsite I could hear running water, so through the trees and down a steep slope I went until I found the stream. That was nice, although it was tough to get to on foot.

If I needed a campsite in the same area in the future, I would actually consider coming back here.
