Closer to the main house and a short walk from the parking area, Site 3 is situated in a mossy grove under the oaks of Oak Mountain Hideaway! Welcome to our dream home on a parcel of 24 private acres. We welcome you to pitch your tent atop our forested mountain with spectacular sunrises and sunsets, wildlife and birds galore, and dark skies for viewing the stars and the Milky Way! We have three sites available. Site #3 is close to the main house and to the parking area. It is in a wooded area situated between the main house and the cabin we offer as a bed and breakfast. It is mossy and has a lovely view.

This site has a fire ring and grill and firewood is provided. Potable water is provided upon arrival.

Our property is secluded and surrounded by the natural environment. We are only a few miles from a wild elk herd and State Game Lands. Birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts will see and hear many common species including bluebirds,blue jays, robins, chickadees, mourning doves and many more including the brownthrasher, the woodcock, various owls, turkey, hawks, and the whippoorwill. Wehave even seen northern harriers and bald eagles. Deer are plentiful and at night you'll hear coyotes howl. Black bear make an appearance from time totime, but rarely.

The nearby Quehanna Wilds is a wonderland for hikers, backpackers, mountainbikers, bird watchers, hunters and fishermen. There are over 48,000 acres inthis wilderness which is part of two state forest natural areas. Here you canpick wild blueberries in late summer and cross country ski in the wintermonths. We are also near the West Branch of the Susquehanna River on which youcan canoe or kayak. We provide a shuttle service for an added fee. Unplug and unwind at our mountain hideaway!

Best camping i've ever done

This was easily the best camping experience I have ever had. Anna Marie and Ed have created a wonderful outdoor experience that feels both comfortable and natural. Their property mimics that of the Colorado mountains with a wonderful vista of the surrounding PA hills.

The campsites were well maintained in addition to the privy (flushing toilet I may add). They also have their own private trail network on the property. A dream property if I say so myself.

The host's hospitality was incredible, checking in now again but never imposing. They provided dry wood in addition to some water. If you are so lucky, Anna Marie may come out with a baked good as we did with a sourdough treat.

For those worried about cell service, I did get a few bars of T-mobile and my sister had full bars of verizon. But don't shy away from unplugging and enjoying the serene beauty that is around you.

I would entirely recommend this spot for anyone looking to have a great camping experience near some of the best natural land PA has to offer.

The hosts are wonderful folks. Very accomodating. The location is beautiful. A great spot to get away from it all. I was luck enough to be there on the night of a "house concert". Fantastic! I can't say enough good things!

Anna Marie and Ed were wonderful hosts! They provided plenty of information about hiking in the area and were generous in providing bottled water, kindling, and homemade salsa (which was delicious!). Their scenery was an impressive backdrop to a cozy site and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you both for a perfect weekend getaway!

I loved it. Anna Marie and Ed were very kind, and helpful. They recommended a few places to hike in the area, made us chips and salsa, and even helped set up our tent in the rain.

The folks who own this site are on point. From the privy to the trails they've made...everything is lovely. When we stayed there we met a group of 3 from DC and had a great time talking with them. We'd definitely stay there again.
