This is a tent camping site in a maple grove. A firepit with screen. Drive and park by your own tent site on 50+ acres. Only three miles to the beginning of 50 mile long, Red Bank Creek bike trail or waterway, which both go to the Allegheny River. Bring your own bikes and canoes, rafts, or kayaks. We have maps for rail trail, just ask me or my cohost. You can start trails across from Giant Eagle in Brookville and take kayak or tube out 6 miles down in Summerville at Moore Road or further down in New Bethlehem. Tubing or kayaking is nice on Red Bank Creek, put in off White Street (across from large stone Methodist Church) take out in Summerville. May be too shallow July/August for boats but a rubber raft is very relaxing. Cook's Forest has a shuttle and float. Clarion River is 20 minutes away and deeper to do better late summer. You can hike a loop on the largest portion of the property through forest and stream down to Red Bank Creek. It takes about an hour to do loop if you just hike and don't hang out at "river". Just follow the pink dots to river and return along southern border of property still following pinks dots. To go to your camp site turn into property drive at the green gate. If you just want to lay in the hammock and read or sit in the shade you can do that too. Wildlife watching is always great. Snow shoeing in winter if you are into that but winter camping isn't for everyone. Use any dead downed wood for fire. A camp stove is nice due to heavy foliage of woods for cooking. Be aware there is other sites for guests at Blueberry Meadow; Rustic Cabin; or Boondock at Sandy Ledges for trailer camping.

Didn't stay, too cold!
We actually ended up not staying here. We came and checked it out, but there was a hole in the ceiling, which may or may not have contributed to the trailer being much colder than I expected. We did bring a heater and 0 degree sleeping bags (Judy & Linda warned us it would be very cold, no heat, etc.), but it was worse than I expected, so we ended up finding an alternative. I think this place would be fine in the warmer months, but especially since it had recently snowed, I underestimated the cold.
We stayed at tent site #2. The grove was a perfect camping location for a group of 4. We walked the pink trail to the river the first day we arrived. The area was really pretty and all three dogs loved it, too! Linda was very responsive any time we had questions and her co-host stopped by to make sure everything was alright (and even sold us delicious, fresh duck eggs). We would definitely recommend this tent site.
Good spot for camping!
Good spot for camping! Nice to get out of the city and enjoy the private, woodsy space. Flat land, fire ring, and outdoor potty all great. A plus that the hosts provided water jugs! The campsite got nice and quiet at night. Very peaceful. Pretty during the day, too, with the sun spotting through the leaves!
The outdoor adventure site was a fantastic weekend getaway. Judy offered great alternative activities to hiking or biking in bad weather - however, we lucked out and had a great time biking the Redbank Valley Rail Trail! Also recommend doing the hike Linda maps out. It was wild!
