Bring your scout troop, school group or book club to experience our West Branch Preserve. This is the only location where camping is allowed on the preserve and provides great privacy. An old mill and stream are located a short hike from the campsite.

The Campsite with outhouse is accessed from from the Preserve parking lot on North Mountain Road in Jefferson. The hike in is just under 1 mile. Check out our map to see exactly where.

Here’s what you’ll need to bring:

  • All your normal camping gear
  • WATER – there is no potable water
  • Consider bringing a sled to haul gear if there is snow on the ground.
  • A West Branch Preserve map
  • A positive attitude!
