Wake up to lakeside views at this backyard campsite beside Beach Pond. Camp in the grass below forest shade or on a wooden deck by the water.
North shore Woods on Beach pond is equipped with two tent sites, an outhouse, shower, and a wood burning sauna. You will have access to kayaks, a paddleboard, a canoe, and a swimming dock for fun at Beach pond!
Bring your own tent, food, and toiletries.
I’m relatively new to the backyard camping experience but this was a pretty cool set up. There are 2 campsite options at the private residence and both are on the waterfront with picnic tables, chairs, fire pits and a spot for tents/hammocks. We really enjoyed unlimited use of all the water toys including stand up paddle board, canoe and kayaks. The home owners do also rent out a cabin on the property and some RV plots so you will have to share the beach with whoever else is staying there at the time. The beach was pretty lively with people throughout most of the day but everyone was respectful of quiet hours and we overall had a sense of privacy. The “campsite” has access to a toilet, shower, electric and WiFi. There is also a sauna available for use which was an added bonus. Town is about 10 minutes away and we recommend getting the eggplant pizza at the Town & Grill Pizzeria!
It should be noted that this is a backyard camping site and there are certain more social and less private components associated with this type of stay. On arrival, you'll pass RVs tucked off of the side of the long driveway cradled with green ferns. When you pull up to the parking lot (located directly in front of the host's home) you'll find a little beach stocked with kayaks and canoes. On the right hand side of the parking lot there is a wood burning sauna which takes about two hours to heat up. There is a nearby town within 10 minutes drive, should you require reinforcements.
Below are a few general facts/pointers about the campsite:
If you seek more privacy, you can kayak/canoe out to one of the islands at the center of the lake and pitch a hammock there for the afternoon.
There are 2 camping spots to choose from and the one to the left of the house (NOT the sauna one) is definitely the superior spot.
Reservation includes parking, potable water, showers, electricity, wifi, access to the sauna and unlimited use of the hosts' SUP, canoe and kayaks. Firewood is also available for an additional $3.
The wifi was spotty but it seemed to be device dependent (I didn't have connection issues but my partner did).
