Cindy and I live in the mountains and enjoy the outdoor life; traveling, gardening, enjoying time with Henry, our 14-year-old Westie. We spend time volunteering in Catoctin National Park, which is a 5 minute drive from the house.
Pretty handy and mechanical with most things, including RV components. If you need help with fixing something on your rig, we can probably help with most minor repairs.

We were away during Tom and Cindy’s stay but I trust they were still able to enjoy TurkeyHills! Come back anytime!
We can’t say enough about T, C and Henry! They were so kind and welcoming. They helped us get backed in and settled, had a homemade welcome gifts or us, and gave us hints on the local attractions. It was great to get to know them around the fire! They are a great couple and we can’t say enough about their hospitality! They have a beautiful place and the surrounding landscapes and historical homes in the area are breathtaking! Thank you T and C!
We thought we left a reference for our gracious hosts at Camp Catoctin months ago. Sorry about the oversize. We had a great time visiting with this fine couple and enjoyed an evening beside the fire on their deck. We will probably visit them again in the future. 👍👫😁
I can't say strongly enough how nice these two guys are. From the moment they welcomed me to their property to the time I left, they couldn't have been more helpful and generous with their time. I hesitate to say that Tom helped me fix a brake problem on my trailer--it's more accurate to say that I helped him fix my problem.
The reward for making the drive to their place is a very, very quiet place to spend the night.
Super people and great location.
Tom-and-Cindy's place is nestled in nature and close to so much. Gettysburg is about a 30 minute drive, there are a number of hiking trails in the State Park and in the Catoctin Mountain Park (less than 10 minute drive from their home) and plenty of trails in their backyard too. The site in their yard was perfect and they are a couple of the kindest people you will ever meet. We hung out around the fire in the back yard the first night and then I was treated a beautiful piano serenade on my last night with them. Tom also helped me with an RV repair, he is quite handy :-) They went above and beyond in every aspect of my stay. Thank you so much Tom and Cindy and I hope our paths cross again!
Beautiful property in a great location. Thanks again for letting us enjoy it for the night.
Really enjoyed my stay there. Very nice and accommodating hosts. Really beautiful home in nice neighborhood. Wish them and Henry safe travels
Great hosts. Enjoyed our conversation on the outdoor back patio. Nice sunrise over the mountains. Parked on the large driveway because of recent rains, but the wooded view surrounding us was very nice. If parking on the driveway because of rain, bring leveling blocks.
We had a great stay at Camp Catoctin. Hosts were very helpful, accommodating and made us feel welcome. The location was beautiful and very quiet. There is so much to do and see in their area and we hope to stay with them again.
Loved our stay! From our first contact, their friendly welcome, great directions and very generous hospitality it was a five star stay. It's a quiet beautiful location which is close to so many
things which were on our bucket list. Definitely met new friends and hope to meet up again sometime.
On the top of a mountain and in the shade, does it get any better than this. Yes, add in fantastic hosts and fireworks and you have a perfect 4th of July weekend. Enjoyed riding all the country roads and great pizza from a local place. Arrived strangers but left friends. What an enjoyable experience, would like to come back in the fall and see all the foliage when it turns. Thanks so much for your hospitality!
