Peace and quiet and nature.
The site was private and secluded, but also out in the open under a big sky. I don't know which was more impressive, the stars or the fireflies. There was plenty of room to park my rig, and it was level. Dave, the host, is very knowledgeable about the wildlife and ecology of the area.
Couldn't have been better
Our stay at Dave's was better than we could have ever imagined. The land was perfect, very well maintained and more private than we were even hoping for. I have absolutely zero things to complain about and all the things to say about planning our next trip. Awesome host, beautiful property, a great time was had by all. Thanks so much!
Stargazing and christmas trees
We had a really great time at Chappel Hill Tree Farm. It was our home base for some Allegheny National Forest exploring. The site itself is right below a stand of old Christmas trees, and you get to catch whiffs of them when the wind blows just right. There are some very large trees around the camp site that provide a lot of shade, which kept us comfortable on 90 degree days. It occurred to us on our second night that we were the only people camping on a 140 acre tree farm. The open field across from the campsite allowed for some really breathtaking star gazing. We could see the Milky Way with our naked eyes. Dave was a great host and gave us tips on things to check out in the area.
Fantastic place to camp. Dave showed up to greet us and show us around the farm when we arrived and even had a fire going for us.
The farm is shady, breezy and quiet and the campsite is set up very well with plenty of flat ground and a cozy vibe. Loads of natural beauty and shopping nearby within 20 mins drive. Porta potty nearby was very clean and convenient.
Give this place a shot, you won't regret it
Private spot with land to explore
Loved staying at Dave's place! So much more to discover beyond the tree farm. We followed the blue blazes (I think he said it was a 2.2 mile hike) through the property, and found the entrance to the deer fence and explored inside there too. Dave came to greet us and even brought a box with some tourist information on the surrounding areas. Would definitely stay here again!
A unique rustic camping experience
This was our first time using Hipcamp and we had a great experience. The property was so beautiful and secluded, with pine forests, a mowed trail, remnants of an old farm and a campsite that overlooks a field of wildflowers - so much wildlife to explore! There are large oak and maple trees that provide plenty of shade around the campsite and we saw many deer, butterflies and even a spotted a red eft. Dave greeted us upon arrival and was a very kind and informative host. I was really happy to have a clean port a potty and picnic table. We really enjoyed the peaceful quiet of this site and are looking forward to returning!
