Whip-poor-will Woods is welcoming campers during the Coronavirus Pandemic. We feel we offer a safe and stress-free escape that other travel destinations may not. We have only one tent site that is far from any neighbors on a 100+ acre private forest. We do a no-touch, distancing welcome at your vehicle, we completely disinfect the tent and furniture before every new arrival. You should bring your own bedding or sleeping bags. Our ventilation system is the GREAT outdoors. We have adjusted our check-out time to 10:30 am to give plenty of time for the site cleaning. We now provide extra water and toilet paper. We will not allow any two-legged visitors near the site and you are asked not to allow any other people to visit you without being first registered by Tentrr. Schedule a leisurely guided nature walk with the Campkeepers as an extra or explore many trails on your own. We have 100-plus private acres. Use our campsite as a home base while hiking or biking the D&L trail or whitewater rafting on the Lehigh River,
