Beautiful Pondside Campsite Getaway

Unplug and unwind at your own secluded, private waterfront campsite. Sit back and relax by the babbling brook and enjoy the fresh air, vast open skies, rolling hills and gorgeous views. Our beautiful pond is stocked with bass and catfish, making it a fisherman’s paradise, and the perfect setting for campers looking to introduce their young ones to the world of fishing - catch and release only, please! We love this land so much - come let us host you for a hassle-free adventure.

Aside from the fishing and hiking available right at your tent site, we are just a short distance away from so many wonderful activities. The town of Franklin, NY is only 8 minutes away from the campsite, and has much to offer - including Franklin Stage Company, antique shops, and two restaurants. The town of Franklin also boasts a wonderful farmer’s market every Sunday morning through Columbus day, where you can find local fruits, vegetables, cheeses and more! Oneonta and East Sidney Lake, which offers public beach access, are both only ten minutes away. Moonlit Pond is also only forty minutes away from Cooperstown, famous for the Baseball Hall of Fame among many other attractions!
