Pitch your tent along the bluffs looking out over the coves that border the southern and eastern edges of our property. A 5 minute hike from the main house with access to a trail that leads to the base of a water fall (seasonal). Very quiet and peaceful site where you will only be interrupted by the occasional animal. Sunrises on the eastern bluff are amazing. If you are in for a longer hike, we can give you a guided hike to a cave on the corner of our property.

There are also some excellent opportunities for rock climbing on our property and in the nearby state parks. Foster falls is an excellent day hike with swimming in the pool at the bottom of the falls and hiking through the gorge. Rock climbing areas along the hiking trail provide a full day of activities.

Host was awesome and sounds like they have plans to make this space available and awesome as well! It'd be a great spot to have some privacy from the groups that camp in the surrounding public parks around including Foster Falls!

Just a lounging! While you're on top of the bluff make sure to take in the glorious views! Again, enjoying the shaded tailgate and some delicious Campbells! Parking can be close by in case you forget something from the car

First time staying at Bluff Top. Matt (the host/owner) was really quick in answering all of my pre-booking questions. The address was easy to find. The driveway, which is a long, gently winding route, assures you of a good dose of privacy... although it never felt secluded in a bad way. Matt greeted me at the end of the drive, answered a few more questions and then led me to a site that seemed to match what I was looking for. He told me where I could find water, where I could get a few fresh eggs for breakfast, and that was it. There was one other group there but they were easily half a mile or more away. I was on a motorcycle; he led me to an old trail and said I could go as far as I liked; a few hundred feet down I found a great clearing. He provides trash and toilet facilities.
The farm is a functioning farm nestled in the forest... if you are accustomed to car-camping in public or state campsites, it will feel different. While I didn't hear the typical sounds you may hear at a public campsite, I did hear lots of birds and squirrels and had a few deer annoyed that I was there. Slept soundly through the night in my hammock, with no late-night wildlife visitors seeking food. So, basically, a perfect environment. I only wish I had more time to explore the farm.

The driveway.Old logging road.Setting up camp... found a perfect spot where three old trails converged.A little after sunrise.

Matt and his location were wonderful! He was extremely kind and helpful (even allowing us to have some eggs from his chicken coop). Location is close proximity to many trails making it easy to day hike (10-15 minute drive to Grundy Forest, Foster Falls etc....). Would definitely recommend!

Matt accommodated ya (3 weary campers!) at the very last minute, as the sun was setting. We’d been camping a few hours away the night before, and all the surrounding campsites within a ~100-mile radius or more were full. I was traveling with someone who had never ‘camped’ outside a park with facilities, so it was a bit of a stretch for them but we all powered through together, and I’m so so grateful for matt’s accommodation, and can’t wait to come back and explore the trails in another season! The only issue was that the ground where we were recommended To put up our tents and have a fire, and surrounding areas, were pretty thorn-heavy. But we cleared our way, and had a lovely nights’ sleep with full star views, rainy and foggy morning coffee, AWAY from screens!!! 🙏🏼

Our stay at Bluff top was awesome. We spent the weekend climbing at Foster Falls and as there were no spots available at the Foster Falls camp ground so we searched around and found Bluff top. Matt was super responsive and gave us all the information we needed to arrive and find our camp spot later in the evening. Matt even setup a fire pit for us with firewood and we had a blazing fire going in about 5 min. That was amazing!! He has beautiful land it was very quiet and peaceful. We may skip the foster falls campground next time and come back to stay at Bluff top. 5 Stars!
