We came at the last minute, so our host was out of town but welcoming
This is a lovely secluded spot.
The gravel road to get there is irregular and did a bit of damage to our low roadtrek. Be fine for a 4-wheel drive or vehicle that has good shocks or reasonable clearance.

We had a great time staying at Catherine’s! She communicated quickly and clearly. She has beautiful land and woods and let us pitch our tent near the driveway in her yard. Had we gotten there earlier in the evening when it was still light, we would have loved to find a spot further up in her woods. Place was quiet and dark and we slept great. She had a hose available for water. Would recommend for anyone, would advise that the site is down a mile-long gravel road, we made it down fine with a sedan.

This was a great camp spot. Very private and spacious. The road to get there is a bit bumpy but drivable even with a small car. Catherine provides great directions for how to get to her house and how to walk to the spot from her driveway. There are plenty of possibly camp spots, just find the one you like the most. It is about a 15 min drive to Montpelier town center and about 20-30 min drive to Stowe center.

The property is huge! Explored a little when we first arrived and plenty of great locations to camp. We decided on the closest spot by the stream to the fire pit for convenience sake. Was a bit tough to find level ground but no biggie. The thing I liked most was all the moss. Almost like a fairy tale atmosphere. Catherine was super helpful and accommodating. Oh, take your time on the driveway...bottomed our our Impreza a few times. SUV would be fine.

Great campsite. Lots of options with secluded woods or an open grassy area. We opted for the woods by the creek, but still just a short walk to our car. Catherine was very kind and welcoming and made us feel at home for our time there. Great location not far from Montpelier!
