No electricity or water on site but if your water tank is low you can fill up at our house or stop by to use our high speed internet or phone and have tea / coffee with us. The site is right next to a Pond and you will be our guest for swimming or you can fish for bass from shore, canoe, kayak or your small boat.

We have free fire wood so you can leave yours home and not break any state laws. You can explore our woods and sit on our big rock or do nothing at all.

Perfect!

Just can't say enough good about this property and the hosts. Our first trip with the dogs and a new camper and it was perfect! The pond. The private beach. The canoe. The scenery. Just serene. Highly recommend! Thanks again!

Memorable Experience

Our hosts were completely gracious! The site they had prepared for us was beautiful and spacious and extremely private, you couldn’t ask for more. He checked in with us every day to make sure everything was ok and pleasure to talk to. The nearby lake was refreshing and stocked with fish. We would absolutely recommend this site and Host. We would definitely stay at this site when back in the area.

Great first

This was an unbelievable stay. Our children met us, grands too. We laughed, played, ate, swam, kayaked, hiked and played ball. Our hosts were terrific. As we are newbies a year at Boondocking I have questions of others for future campers, they sure got me all set up. This is a wonderful stay hands down. Thank you for sharing. Kerls Kastle

Awesome Experience!

Wonderful host and a beautiful site with a gorgeous pond a short walk away. Host went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. He even gave us some fresh green beans from his garden. Our little girl loved the wild blueberries along the path to the pond. We really enjoyed our time there and hope to go back someday!!!

What an awesome spot and generous host!

Spot is minutes walk from a lake with a beach. The host gave us a beach permit so we could use it, even offered us his kayak. He was a terrific host, allowing us to pop up to us house to use his wifi. Will definitely be staying here again one day. A true hidden gem!!

Another Great Stay

We spent a relaxing few days at this great site in the woods. Dan caught big bass in Cass Pond...the canoe and beach pass got good use! This has to be one of our favorite places to stay. We used our solar to keep power charged and dumped our tanks at the Keene Wastewater Treatment site behind the Keene Airport. A great facility! Thanks again!

Beautiful escape

The place is awesome. There was tons of firewoood for us to use on a huge lot.

Host was so gracious, even offered us a kayak or canoe for the beautiful lake that's a short walk away through the woods.

We will certainly be back!

A Wonderful Peaceful Place

We spent a wonderful one night stay at "Lake Buffalo" (which isn't really a Lake - ask Jerry).
We were greeted by our host after we arrived. Our host was friendly and curious about us. The site offered so much like the free firewood, outside chairs and walking paths. We availed ourselves of the town beach on Cass Pond - a welcome dip after our dusty rail trail ride. Highly recommend this host and site!

Great Spot! Awesome Host!

We had a wonderful time. This is a beautiful spot! A lake nearby and hiking trails - who could ask for more. We had a campfire and cooked out. The host was hospitable and very familiar with the area. I highly recommend.

Wonderful stay at Lake Buffalo

We had a great 3 days boondocking at Lake Buffalo’s site. The host met me upon arrival and directed me to the site which is down the road a bit and near Cass Pond. We had plenty of room to set up the camper and screen room. There was a nice big rock fire pit with plenty of wood. There is no cell service at the site but a short bike ride back to the hosts home we were able to use their WiFi and replenish our water supply. The host had a nice notebook with flyers of local places to visit. We went up to the Keene area and did some great bike riding on the awesome rail trails.

Look forward to an trip to this area as there is lots more to explore :-)
Thank you Lake Buffalo for a wonderful weekend in the woods!

Awesome stay

Jerry was the most accommodating host! This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay with our new-to-us travel trailer. Jerry met us, escorted us to the camping area on his property, gave us a beach pass for the local swimming area, and even delivered a canoe to us to use. Dan caught 2 great bass on the pond near our site and we swam each night. We stayed 3 nights and toured all over the area, visiting 6 covered bridges and driving to the top of Pack Monadnock where we could see over 55 miles (as the crow flies) to Boston. We were able to test all of our systems, as well as checking out our new solar panel. We loved the entire experience and hope to visit again. Thanks Jerry! All our future Boondockers Welcome experiences will have a tough act to follow!

Lovely generous couple

Even though I wasn't able to actually stay with these folks because it got too late and I can't drive in the dark, they were so sweet to say if Walmart wouldn't let me stay I could still come on down if I needed to since they would be up late.

Incredible host, great location

We cannot speak more highly of Jerry's hosting site and his hospitality. We had a wonderful time by the firepit and were very thankful that Jerry had us stay. We would love to come back! Thank you Jerry.

Lovely spot and friendly hosts.

We stayed with Lake Buffalo for a couple of nights in early October and were delighted by the spot, which was close to a gorgeous lake and very quiet and secluded. Our host was friendly, kind and a great source of local knowledge and went above and beyond to help us. It was an absolute pleasure to stay there.

Very Welcoming Hosts

Spent a wonderful 3 days dry camping.
Our hosts were very responsive to email and met us on arrival to the camping site.
They took the time to welcome us and brief us on the region, where to go for groceries, and where to go have coffee.
The location is in beautiful New Hampshire with Brattleboro Vermont to the West and Covered Bridge country and Keene To the North.
Quiet and secluded, it was a wonderful spot to relax, have a campfire and enjoy nature.

We'd love to stay here again and recommend it highly!

Great Hosts

Response time was super for our last minute holiday weekend getaway. Our host was extremely accommodating, helpful, and offered us many helpful tips while at the same time leaving us to enjoy the quiet solitude of the camp site.
