Welcome to our camping site in the back forty of our rural, mostly forested homestead. We are located in the middle of a world-class gravel grinder's paradise surrounded by hundreds of miles of dirt roads, so be sure to bring your bike - or ride it in! This primitive spot offers full afternoon sun at the picnic table. Pitch up to three two-person tents in the designated spots just into the trees, including one carpeted in deep moss, or pitch a larger tent in the sunshine.

This site is accessible by car and pickup truck via a class four (unmaintained) road, and you can drive right to your site, though we recommend 4WD or AWD. At the site, you will find a rustic picnic table, fire ring, and privacy as this is currently the only site we offer. No outhouse yet, so be prepared to take care of your business appropriately in the woods.

Our 47-acre property and the surrounding area are home to barred owls, turkeys, squirrels, chipmunks, and rabbits, as well as large animals like deer, moose, and bear. Several beaver ponds are home to beavers, muskrats, ducks, and so many "peepers" in the spring you will question how frogs can possibly be so loud.

This site puts you in the middle of innumerable outdoor adventures. Within a half hour of Burke Mountain, Kingdom Trails, and the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail. Within 45 minutes of Hill Farmstead Brewery (rated best beer in the world by RateBeer), pristine Lake Willoughby, and St. Johnsbury's Dog Mountain (home of the Stephen Huneck gallery). That's beside all the nearby stuff you perhaps haven't heard of: the corn maze in Danville, local farmer's markets, the South Wheelock swim hole, 1800s cemeteries within walking distance, swimming and paddling in dozens of lakes, canoeing/kayaking/tubing the Passumpsic or Connecticut Rivers, horseback riding, ATVing...we will share some of our local secrets with you for a real taste of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.

In August, Vermont will begin a mandatory mask regulation with which we expect you will comply, and for now we must offer you a socially distanced welcome when you arrive. Please also check the Vermont Department of Health website before booking to be sure you are coming from an approved area to help us keep our neighbors healthy so we can continue to host you in our beautiful state!
