Pitch your tent (or two or three!) on this 12' x 24' platform in a small clearing in the woods overlooking a stream. The stream is a short walk down a marked path and has a small bathing pool that is great for a refreshingly crisp bath.
Though not far off the road, there is very little car traffic, and the surroundings are very peaceful. The din of the running stream is a constant, while the sounds of coyotes and owls can be heard at night.
There is a spring-fed 15 gallon reservoir of potable water that will slowly refill.
The Beer Diviner small-scale brewery and taproom is a stone's throw away from the parking area with a selection of tasty beer and some food options available. In addition to regular hours, there are special summer events, and live music every Saturday night.
Cherry Plain State Park is a 'less-traveled' state park and campground just 3.5 miles up the road, offering lake swimming, boating, hiking and mountain bike trails
Other nearby outdoor attractions include: The Taconic Crest Trail, Jiminy Peak Resort, Hancock Shaker Village, and Mt. Greylock.
