At the bottom of the driveway is a wishbone fork where the first site “Wishbone Left” is on the left.

We have a beautiful, quiet 4 acre country lot along a half a mile of river frontage with just two large camp sites. At the bottom of the driveway is a wishbone fork where the first site “Wishbone Left” is on the left. For “Wishbone Right” (marked) keep going another 60 feet and you can drive in and there are many places to camp and lots of room for RV/Trailer/ Tiny Home which is flat, wide and long. It is the larger of the two sites and there are many choices for pitching a tent. The old house there is closed up but gives us power and water from our well.
There is a stone outdoor fireplace ring nearby. Trees to hang a hammock (we have one if you need) and rough paths down the brook with a rope line. The Brook easiest access is at the north end of the lot where the bank is closer and the blue and white rope is there to help you down.
The Brook has many cool swim holes and can be explored along our 1/2 mile of brook frontage where there are no homes on either side viewable. The other side of the brook is private and our property ends at the bridge north of the site.
We prefer if you boondock but there is an outhouse is available if needed.
Lots of hiking, swimming, mountain and road biking (inquire about renting one of our mountain bikes), kayaking and canoeing locations too. Groceries only 15 minutes away.
