You can wander around my 32 acres, or enjoy 10 miles of trails on state land that are adjacent to my place. Bring your boots or bring your horses or bicycles. I can show you a lovely swimming hole not far away, where you can slide down chutes in the rocks or splash about in a swimming hole beneath a short waterfall. If you are through hiking the Finger Lakes Trail, I'm not far from that, or if you just want to get away, this is the place.

Great place to camp with a great and caring host! The camp is very scenic and beautiful, especially in the morning, during sunrise, when the sun glistens the area. There are many sites to camp in Would Knot, with each site having its own unique beauty to it. Definitely recommend for some who just wants a simple & peaceful getaway.

We had a great weekend staying on the property and Douglas was a great host! We came with a RV and our 2 dogs and we were provided with water and electric hook-ups and the dogs were elated to be able to run free. They had a blast running through the trails behind the property! Would definitely come back!

We had a very peaceful and relaxing weekend at Would Knot. The trails in the state Forrest were just down the driveway! Despite the rain we enjoyed the quiet countryside. Doug was very pleasant and accommodating!! We will be back for sure.... hopefully in the fall to check out the leaves and do more hiking!!
