Beautiful view with a few quirks

The farm is beautiful and it is a peaceful location. It was a little bit different than we expected, as the listing implies that there is a lot of spaced out farmland for camping, when in reality it is only a smaller fenced area of grass to the side of the house (it felt a little like camping in someone’s backyard/lawn). There was also no grill for over the fire pit, so make sure to bring your own for cooking.

That being said, though, it is a beautiful view and if you are properly prepared it could be a wonderful experience and perfectly close to Letchworth State Park.

This is a convenient spot to just get away! The field is mowed and flat for easy camp set up. Beautiful sunset view, tons of fire flies, and big open sky for star gazing. If your stay is at the start of July, you’ll be treated to black raspberries that grow next to your site. The site is pretty close to the road, but it is low traffic, virtually none at night. Peaceful and beautiful spot!

We had such an amazing stay here! This site has the most beautiful view and is super serene and quiet. The hosts are super friendly and there’s an extremely friendly kitten on the premises. We wish we could’ve extended our stay and stay longer! This was so beautiful

The host was very friendly and helpful. She put out newspaper and wood to start a fire. There was also a grate to go over the fire for cooking. It was also a very nice spot to watch the sunset.

My only complaint was that this is not a private campsite. It’s on a mowed lawn that’s fenced in next to the house. Definitely still had your own space from the host but I’d like to clarify you will not be in the woods or have trees to set up a hammock. The second night another couple stayed there too and there was only one fire out to share amongst the both of us. It felt a little uncomfortable since we didn’t want to get close to other people due to Covid. Beside that, it is very close to Letchworth and Silver Lake so you can go hiking/paddling and get away during the day.

I have mixed feelings about our stay. As stated by other reviews, the site is right off the road. We were aware of this going in, and it wasn’t bad at all. Very low traffic. Carly has added some amenities. There was a dry sink with wash bins, a 2.5gal water jug, soap, and some towels for our use. There was also the fire grate and a mini Weber grill. All these were great, but I was very disappointed to learn that the firewood bundle that I had paid extra for was just a pile of logs in the grass. It had rained off and on all day so they were unusable, and they were all large logs too-no kindling. They were there no matter what, so don’t bother paying the $5. Carly-either build a shelter for your wood or let campers know! I passed dozens of stands selling wood and if I had known I would have brought my own.

When setting up camp we pitched our tents to the left of the fire pit. We were surprised to see that there was a teardrop camper and a large RV on the property, both looked empty. If the teardrop was on Hipcamp I definitely would have booked that.

The view is stunning, we had a great time watching the sunset. I took some amazing drone shots. It started pouring around 8pm, there is no shelter or trees on this property, so unfortunately we couldn’t hang a tarp for shelter or anything, kinda disappointed with that. Just had to get right in our tents. Carly was generous enough to offer the large RV to us because it was thunder storming al night, but we had already hunkered down.

One final note. Carly’s house is right next to the camping property, and on our night it sounded as if she was having a small get together. There was moderate noise late into the night with people talking and raised voices on her porch. I won’t go into what the conversation was about, but you could hear EVERYTHING. Not what I expected for a camping farm retreat.

Overall I’d probably stay here again if I needed a quick stop on a road trip. It had good amenities, was clean, and the price is right. Keep on improving Carly!
