Camp out on our beautiful property in the Adirondack foothills, about a 15 minute drive to the Adirondack park border. Enjoy some of the best fishing spots in the country, hunting, hiking (easy trails or the highest peaks in the state), and mountain biking.

You'll be in the back of the property, which is pretty secluded. You can see our house, and possibly catch a glimpse of a neighbor's house if the leaves aren't on the trees yet. The campsite is equipped with a fire pit, chairs, a hammock, and an outdoor composting toilet (no, it doesn't smell).

We bought the property in 2018 and have been slowly been transforming it into a functioning homestead. There is a small garden, the beginnings of a food forest, a medicinal herb meadow, and a small edible mushroom cultivation system. I am also an avid wild food forager and am happy to take you out on a foray if you're interested.

We stock the campsite with bug spray (no DEET on the property please), newspaper and lighter for fires, solar powered cell phone charger, flashlight, first aid kit, trash, recycling, compost bins, free firewood from dead branches with seasoned hardwood available for purchase. Please do not bring your own firewood as it spreads non-native insects.

Please note that we have an adopted dog named Sadie who was neglected for the first few years of her life. She is still learning how to meet other people and dogs. She might bark when you arrive, but she is usually fine once she sniffs you. If you bring a dog, we ask that you keep it on a leash when you are near the house. When back at the campsite, it can be off leash as long as it listens to you and will not chase Sadie. Sadie is generally afraid of other dogs and will leave you alone during your stay.

I am not able to accommodate RVs or trailers. I have a very long, skinny driveway and there is nowhere to to park something as large as a trailer.

The camp site is not accessible by car. You'll have to park in the driveway and then bring your gear back to the site, which is about a 3 minute walk. All vehicles must be parked in the driveway.
