    Under a field of stars, Native American legacy comes to life

    Set back behind today's modern agricultural life and be transported to the past in this campsite among a field that was once a Native American Algonquian village. Here in this circular field, you'll discover this untold story surrounded by a living forest filled with wildlife such as white-tailed deer, Appalachian cottontail, red fox, fishers, and raccoons. Follow the marked hiking paths to enjoy the local stream that wraps around the village where you can fish (with a PA Fishing License) for native pickerel & trout. Enjoy your catch (or S'MORES) over a campfire at night and learn about Algonquian legends & astronomy.

    This site is a great space for aspiring astronomers & campers looking to reconnect with a piece of unseen piece of history. Only a 5 minute drive from Sweet Arrow Lake Park.

    HOUSEKEEPING: During Covid-19 “shelter-in-place” our site is cleaned before & after your visit.

    IMPACT: $10 from each night of your stay is donated to AllTribesDC.org an organization focused on all tribal nations creating harmony, unity, mutual respect and native education among all people. Our hope is you'll feel the importance of this land. Migwetch!
