Tim’s place was absolutely incredible!! He is an amazing and generous host, and made our stay so comfortable and easy. Waters Island is an absolute retreat- the fact that you have to boat in and you have the space completely to yourself makes this whole experience so special. The host was super easy to communicate with and he gave us detailed instructions for how to access the site and a few other tips to make our stay more comfortable. After a quick float down to the island, it was easy to unload the boat and set up camp. A large cleared space near Tim’s cabin was where we set up since we were the only people on the island. It was so much fun to explore the trails that are cut throughout the island, and it was so special to see the pair of nesting bald eagles. There was a big fire and cooking pit, plenty of firewood and lots of fishing access. The sunrise washes over camp in the morning and there is plenty of shade throughout the day. Waters Island felt like our own private getaway on the beautiful Susquehanna and it is a place we will absolutely return to!!! Cheers to Tim for sharing this slice of heaven with people who will appreciate and respect it as much as he does!!

Nothing tastes better!Great cooking/bonfire set upSecurity can be easily distracted 😉Plenty of space in the yard, and an awesome swing to try out!

Book this trip.
Everything advertised, with many additional bonuses. Private island on the river. Stay at the individual site overlooking the river, or roam freely and lay the neck whoever you want. While being respectful of the nature around you... do what you wish.
Timothy couldn’t have been better. Lifetime resident. He’ll tell you all you’d like to hear, and/or let you freely do your thing. Always a phone call away. Endless dry firewood and if it’s a warm day, enjoy the heavily shaded ring, chair and corner table set up.
Look forward to going back.

We had a great time on Tim's island. We were able to use his canoe to get to the island with our dog. Tim met us on the shore and brought our gear over in his motor boat for us. He had cleared out a space for us, brought a fire ring, cut wood, and provided table and chairs. We were only there for a night but had a great time. Tim was a fantastic host, a phone call away if we needed anything, and called to check in on us when a quick storm rolled in. We hope to go back for a longer stay!

Ah where to begin! We booked with Tim super last minute for the holiday weekend and we really lucked out! Not only was it the coolest campsite but Tim was super friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great weekend escape from the city and Tim's hospitality really made our trip. From his knowledge about the area to the best damn BBQ chicken I've ever had, this is a five star site and we will be coming back very soon! Thank you again Tim!
