Pitch your tent and climb our mountain if you like, there are several peaks with awesome views. Bikers and bicyclers will love the local roads, mountain bikers may enjoy our many trails.  You can pitch your tent on a grassy field near the restrooms and shower building or climb up the mountain and rough it a bit on a mossy peak or outcropping.  Bring your fishing gear, we have a mile of frontage on the Ausable river, and a mile of brook with a neat beaver pond.  We have lived here almost fifty years so we know lots about the area and can help you find things only locals know about, swimming holes and whatnot.

      there is lots of room with nearly 500 acres, if you want to pitch your tent farther away from facilities. We will have a portable eco toilet on hand should you wish to camp too far from the bathroom.

The location we stayed at is on the property of a large horse ranch, specifically on a field where summer camps have been held for a very long time. Other sites were available but we chose to stay near the cabins/bath house. Ken was great and helped us with fire wood and our firepit. There is great potential on this site to be a very special hipcamp experience. If you like horses, the Ausable river and a nostalgic camp feel, this place is the place to camp! Looking forward to how this place develops in the future!

Ken and his sister made sure we arrived and had what we needed to stay a night in winter. They communicated with us often and were genuinely interested in what we were hoping to do in the area. I would like to return to see their extensive property in the warm weather and be able to hike from their property.

Host Ken was out of town during our stay but he still managed to be very responsive and made sure we were taken care of. He let his sister, Tara, know that we were staying at their campground and she was able to show us around the farm. The site at Willow Hill is available mostly year-round and we decided to set up camp outside on the gazebo. Because it was still winter, the facilities in the bath house weren’t available yet. However, Tara was very friendly and let us use the bathroom in the farm house the following day for a much-needed shower. We would have liked to have stayed longer and explore Willow Hill’s trails with views of the Adirondacks, but scheduling conflicts unfortunately prevented this. Even though it was March, we had a great time camping there and would love to come back in the warmer months!

Willow Hill Farm is a very cute little camp it’s super n the woods behind a very beautiful horse farm. It’s only 15 mins maybe 20 with traffic to beautiful state parks. Lake Champlain is a must stop if your going to camp here. It’s breathtaking. It has a creek just down the road that would be great for tubing. We booked site 10 for one night and love it so much we stayed 2 more nights.
The camp is a summer girls horse camp, the cabins tell such a story when you walk in. I highly recommend coming to visit. My only Criticism would be that they should have cleaned the bathrooms and shower stalls before we got there. It looked like the girls left all of there things there and just never came back. Like an old abandoned camp. Luckily all the cleaning supplies were right there so I just cleaned two stalls with in the bathrooms and shower area and it totally fine.
The Showers are AMAZING!! They stay hot for a while. After a action packed day taking a hot shower is much needed. You really do get sooo much for your money, so the little things that lack make it so much worth it.

Beautiful views just within reachRoaring fireBeautiful Marsh just a small ride away Big yard for dogs to run.

This was a great spot! It was situated really well for us (we were visiting Lake Placid one day and the Vermont islands the next), but this is also a great stopping point if you're going to Ausable Chasm. There's plenty of space for tents, other campers are respectful, the bathrooms are clean and the hosts are wonderful. (They even supplied tape for our broken tent.) Around sunset we went walking on a trail near the property. Would happily stay here again!
