What are your rates?
We charge $21.75 per site and 2 adults; $3 each for each additional adult; children 6 and under free. We only accept cash at site or credit card through HipCamp.com
Are pets allowed?
Yes, but keep them on leash or under control if other campers are present. The groundskeeper has a golden retriever that may be seen sometimes. She is very friendly but a little gruff with small children and dogs. Please keep your dogs tied at night, as there are coyotes.
Are RVs or popups allowed?
No, only tent camping is permitted. There are many RV campgrounds in the area if you prefer. The drive down to the campground is a sharp switchback with loose gravel. Motorcycles with trailers are permitted but heavier ones are forewarned about the drive.
Is there drinking water?
At the turn of the road, beside the pond, and down at the main site, there is a red spigot of the same water we use for drinking in the house. At this time (2020), there are no shower facilities, (outdoor showers are in the near future plans) but there is an outhouse and a creek.
Is fishing allowed?
Yes, but only catch and release, please!
Does a town race noisy cars around here every once in a while?
Hilltop Speedway, which is located off of the western end of the valley, race most Saturday nights in the summer. Their website has a schedule: http://hilltopspeedway.org/schedule.php
These events last until around 1:00 AM, and are somewhat loud, but mostly a low drone.
Are there trails to hike?
We have short walking trails throughout our land, but Mohican Forest, a 40 minute drive away, has many miles of beginner to advanced trails to explore. It is very good.
Can I bring my own firewood?
If you are coming from the north, please do not! The Emerald Ash Borer has done significant damage to our forests, and can be transferred easily by wood. We have plenty of wood in the forest (but please do not cut down trees) and wood for $5 each arm load.
