Just minutes off the highway the bustling world falls away as the road turns to gravel and the mountain views come into sight. A short walk from the parking area you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Pitch your tent on the large platform nestled next to the hillside perched over an ephemeral stream bed. The platform also host two Adirondack chairs and a fire ring with a grill. For those who don't want to completely disconnect there is also power available on the platform. Although not far from the main house there is a great sense of privacy. Near the end of a dead end road the spot backs up to 150 private acres abound with wildlife. Pileated woodpeckers, Barred Owls, Fox, Deer, The occasional Moose, etc.

Great spot for a few nights! Electricity and shower hook up for a little glamping touch. Two thumbs up. Easy to find. Beautiful location. Great host.

A lot of positives about this camp. Easy access off a quiet road, the campsite is about 100' walk from parking. A large platform for your tent, with an electrical outlet which is a huge plus. It's very private and gives you the feeling that your alone in the middle of the woods, with no one around. I like that!

Being hyper-sensitive to sound, my only negative comment would be the noise from a not too distant highway affected my sleep. However, I often find I'm bothered by sounds that others don't even seem to notice. A curse I live with daily!

This site is definitely worth considering.

This place was great - so much nicer than my expectations! It wasn't hard to find, wasn't far removed from the road but still felt very private because it's conveniently tucked behind a little hill. The site itself was very well constructed and certainly not lacking for anything - it was really quite charming! Would definitely stay again.

This spot is a perfect combination of accessible and private. Nestled amongst some trees and a stream there is plenty of quaint Vermont to satisfy your camping soul. The platform is great for setting up a tent but be warned there is no way to stake it to the ground so you may have to get creative.

The site is wonderful! We just stayed one night on a stop-over but wish we stayed longer and arrived earlier to enjoy it more :)
There are enough space for 2 2-persons tents :)
We saw an eagle!

This tent site is remarkably private and quiet despite being so close to the highway and other amenities. The platform was very large, with plenty of space for our two-person tent, plus the Adirondack chairs and fire pit. It’s also a very short, easy walk to the parking spot, so it was a breeze to bring all our gear down to the platform.

We were a bit unlucky as it had rained earlier in the day when we set up our tent in the evening. This meant the platform was kind of slippery and waterlogged, which then seeped up into our tent. Also, the listing advertises that there is provided firewood, but when we arrived there were only about 4 logs that, because they were uncovered, were also waterlogged. Luckily, we were able to buy some dry firewood and kindling at the Shaw’s in town not too far away.

All in all, if you’re looking for a place to camp that’s conveniently located and feels private (despite some distant road noise) this is a great spot.
