These sites are next to Slippery Rock Creek, so you will wake up to the sound of running water. They are secluded and away from the house and a respectful distance from the other campers. The creek is a fun place to walk/play/fish in; also, there are 80 acres of woodland that the campers can explore.There is a bridge about 1/2 mile away that will allow you to cross the creek and explore more beautiful hiking trails.
We have 3 nice German Shepherds, 5 goats, 2 peacocks, 3 peahens, and about 2 dozen chickens. If chicken eggs are available we will be willing to sell them if anyone is interested. There is also a pool with a grill which looks over the creek and a hot tub that campers will be able to use.

The vibe at Verdant Ridge
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The host was very friendly, his dad, Paul (who actually owned the property), rubbed me the wrong way right off rip. They advertised dogs off leash ok and noted they had a friendly German Shepherd. Upon arrival they had 3 dogs and one was not so friendly, she attacked my dog while she was still in the car and in the process my vehicle was damaged.
Later some friends of the owner showed up and seemed upset with us that we were camping in a spot they wanted as “they helped build that sight” and we’re told nobody had booked it.
The site was nice and private, this would be a great camping site for a couple of dudes who wanted to fish and have some privacy. We could not find the trash receptacles nor were we shown were the flushable toilet was.
Nice private campsite in a very unique location. They have a beautiful swimming pool, chickens, goats, and peacocks. The creek runs along the property and is beautiful. There is a bathroom with a toilet, it’s across the property from the campsite. There a a fair amount of hiking trails around the area too. Gettleman was very kind and gracious and is in the process of some renovations around the property. I plan on visiting again. We had a great time.
This was our first hipcamp experience and we cannot wait to do it again! The place was perfect with secluded camp, we woke to sounds of the creek, had farm fresh eggs we gathered from the chickens for breakfast and the host Issac Gettleman couldn’t have been sweeter! He was quick to respond to communication prior to our stay and while there was very accommodating. Like I said, we cannot wait to go back!
