This 140 acre property is an old farmstead last farmed in the 1950's. It lies on top of the Allegheny Plateau region of NW Pennsylvania and is mostly hardwood forest today. It is surrounded by thousands of acres of forest and is very secluded. AANR friendly. The campsite is near where the farmhouse and barn once stood but the woods are a short walk away. There is a 2 mile loop hiking trail on the property that traverses a variety of habitats which are home to many animals and birds.

The Allegheny River is about 10 miles away (Tidioute, PA) and has excellent paddling and fishing. Also nearby (15 miles, Titusville, PA) is Drake Well Museum which is home of the first oil well ever drilled and Oil Creek State Park which has great trout fishing and an excellent paved bike/hike trail. Finally, you will be on the doorstep to the Allegheny National Forest with all the outdoor recreation it has to offer.

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!

Dave is a great host with a very secluded property. He dropped off a fire ring and wood at my rustic spot. The trails throughout the property are very nice.

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

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.

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.

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!

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!
