We had a great time! The site was huge and very private, with the most beautiful view. Mike was responsive and helpful, and also left us alone to enjoy our privacy. Lots of hiking and swimming in the area. Definitely plan to come back!

Our site was spacious and offered an expansive view of the valley below (which also happens to be a State Park lake!). We enjoyed privacy and ample space, very refreshing. Chickens on farm added some extra charm. We highly recommend this spot as a place to unwind and take in all that the area offers. Don’t forget to grab some maple syrup from Mike! Thanks, Mike!

Mike was a great host who gave us our privacy, and helped us out when we needed it (especially with the pizza oven). The view is amazing, you have quite a bit of space to yourself, and there's access to the forest around you and a close tree for shade on hot sunny days. A nice swath of the meadow area is mowed for you to wander. The compost toilet was clean and has a great view. (If you're shy you should be aware it is in an area that is visible to your friends/family from certain angles---but that shouldn't discourage you from this place at all.). Did I mention the pizza oven? It's great.

My husband, dog and I had the best camping experience at Timbertrail farm. Our spot was so big, private and clean. Mike was an awesome host and never intruded on our privacy. We can’t wait to come back again... and again!

The site was amazing and exceeded every expectation we had. We couldn't get enough of the view. The fire pit and grill were perfect for what we needed, allowing for entertainment and cooking with ease.

The host, Mike, was very welcoming. He walked us up to our site when we arrived and showed us where the water spigot running from spring water was located. We were able to get fresh eggs in the morning and there was plenty of wood for the fire.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend!

This was the perfect spot for our quick camping getaway. It was private, the view was exceptional, and it had everything you could need - composting toilet, spring water "shower", a small fire area with grate for cooking, picnic table, a big tree to hang a hammock, and chairs around the fire pit. Down at "Basecamp", there were chickens (fresh eggs - yum!), drinking water, and a pizza oven. We had a great stay and would definitely come back!

What a fantastic location! We had a spectacular view of the mountains and plenty of privacy from other campers.

Mike was an excellent host! He was very quick to respond to our questions and was helpful in guiding our to our campsite. From there he left us alone to enjoy our time. We highly recommend Mike’s camps.
