Camp Towhee

Camp Towhee is a primitive camp site. Roughly 100 acres in size, the site is a former homestead and dairy located in Peaceful Valley near the Canadian border. 

A small pond is in the center of the property surrounded by open pasture. Many migratory birds can be seen depending on the time of year and an eagle is known to perch on the tall tree by the pond. In the spring be prepared for a chorus of frogs. Although there are no defined trails, there are a few game trails, and a logging road encircles the perimeter of the property and is great for hikes. The entire property is fenced.
