Room for one pickup truck with truck camper. We can run 15-amp electric out to a camper. If we have enough hose available, we could probably fill your tank up with potable town water. Too many leaks to let run continuously. The address for Waze or Google Maps is 104 Osborne Rd, but the street sign reads Osborn Road. We are directly on the Northville Placid Trail, 1.5 miles from its very beginning in Northville. White house and camp sit in the back corner of the property. Suggested Local Attractions:Hiking! Auger Falls and Tenet Creek Falls are nice. Not far away. Hikes are not too long, nor brutal. Auger is an easy loop. Three year old grandson did it. We are on the Great Sacandaga Reservoir. Fishing. Can walk to two bar / restaurants 3/10's of a mile away. Sport Island Pub is on the water. You can use the beach at the pub and swim if you are a customer. Vics is a townie hangout with bar food and pool tables. Ice Cream Tree is an easy walk for pizza, Italian, and ice creams. Village of Northville is a mile away. Has a Tops Supermarket, True Value hardware store, restaurants, liquor store, Red Barn Antiques, auto repair garage, Stewart's package store with gas and diesel, oldest 5&10 in the country, and a Walgreens.
