Relaxing weekend at backcountry she
Upon our arrival to Backcountry Shelter we felt welcomed immediately by Jennifer. The site was set up with a nice sized shelter (perfect for unexpected rain) that has a picnic table, 2 trashcan with lids, and a hammock. We also had a bundle of firewood, 1 water jug and 2 chairs set up waiting for us. Another welcoming plus to this site was the spotless port-a-potty approximately 1/2 mile away. Some of my favorites about this site was: 1.)Easily accessible and able to drive up to site 2.) Secluded from other campers 3.) Gravel roads available on the property to take an afternoon hike. We made some wonderful memories at this site and look forward to booking the Distant View site next. Thanks for your hospitality, Jennifer!
We had really wonderful time at Jeffers Farm. It was very private- the neighboring site was almost a mile away, and the road was pretty far too. The site was set up with a gas grill, a picnic table, water, two cans (one for garbage and one for recycling) and a fire pit with two chairs. The stars were incredible- we saw a few shooting stars and the milky was is extremely easy to see. Jennifer was a great host - she met us at the address and led us up to the site and made sure we had everything we needed.
Wonderful campsite amazing bathroom
This was a great open site with a covering. The hammock was great for an afternoon nap. My wife said this was the best bathroom of this year camping season. Saw family of deer and tones of butterflies. The privacy was of the sites is what us city people love.
Stayed here with a group of about 12 people for my birthday and it was great! The property is quiet and beautiful. Plenty of space to take a small hike. It is a tree farm, so there are a lot of holes from where they have dug up trees, but that didn't really bother us. Porta potty is only about a 10 minute walk from the site. Hosts were super responsive and amazing! Would definitely recommend.
We had a large group and had a nice private stay while on Jeffers farm for 2 nights. It was a bit hard to locate in the dark but once we were there it was worth it. Watch out for the holes where tree roots used to be!
