Tentrr Signature Site - The Algonquin Gitigaan
Tentrr Signature - The Algonquin Gitigaan
Summary: Set back behind today's modern agricultural life and be transported to the past in this campsite among a field that was once a Native American Algonquian village in PA Dutch Country. Here in this circular field, you'll discover this untold story surrounded by a living forest filled with wildlife such as white-tailed deer, Appalachian cottontail, red fox, fishers, and raccoons. Follow the marked hiking paths to enjoy the local stream that wraps around the village where you can fish (with a PA Fishing License) for native pickerel & trout. Enjoy your catch (or S'MORES) over a campfire at night and learn about Algonquian legends & astronomy. This site is a great space for aspiring astronomers & campers looking to reconnect with a piece of unseen piece of history. Only a 5 minute drive from Sweet Arrow Lake Park. HOUSEKEEPING: During Covid-19 shelter-in-place our site is cleaned before & after your visit. IMPACT: $10 from each night of your stay is donated to AllTribesDC.org an organization focused on all tribal nations creating harmony, unity, mutual respect and native education among all people. Our hope is you'll feel the importance of this land. Migwetch! The Space: Under a field of stars, Native American legacy comes to life Guest Access: This is an exclusive Tentrr Signature campsite. Tentrr partners with land owners to offer unique accommodations in beautiful outdoor spaces. Our campsites are off-the-grid which means they generally do not have access to electricity, wifi, or modern plumbing. Instead, they offer the chance to relax, unplug, and fully experience nature! Your Tentrr campsite includes a 10'x12' (120 square feet) safari-style canvas tent on a raised wooden platform. Inside the tent you'll find one queen bed or a queen-size bunk bed (see photos for the exact setup). The tent is big enough for the bed plus one or two extra sleeping bags on the floor. Aside from the canvas tent, campers can also use the extra 5-person pop-up dome tent that’s provided. You'll also have a 6-ft picnic table, outdoor fire pit, 2 Tentrr Adirondack chairs, and a heating source to keep you warm and toasty at night. Max Occupancy: This refers to the total number of campers allowed onsite with your reservation. Toilets: Every campsite is equipped with a camp toilet (we call it the Tentrr Loo). This is a simple wooden box with a toilet seat and a bucket inside. To use, line the bucket with a CleanWaste Sani-Bag supplied at the camp prior to use. Afterwards, simply tie the bag up and place it in a trash bag. CleanWaste Sani-Bags use a NASA-developed gelling/deodorizing agent that helps prevent spills and keeps everyone safe and clean. Showers: Every Signature campsite comes with a Coleman Sun Shower. The sun shower has a reservoir that holds up to 5 gallons of water, potentially enough for multiple showers. It's constructed of heat-locking material that warms the water when it's left in the sun, even on cool days. What you should bring: -S'mores supplies & any food you'd like to eat -A cooler to keep your grub from spoiling -Bedding and pillows Firewood Other Things to Note: Stay on marked trails so not to trespass off property. Maintain proper social distancing & hygiene while on site during Covid-19 shelter in place. Please cancel if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms. Your fur babies are welcome, but stay alert.

Interaction with Guests: Upon check out, you should leave-no-trace of your stay and be sure your campsite is returned to its natural glory! While Tentrr does not charge a cleaning fee, we do expect campsites to be left how they were found. After you check out, take everything you brought in and be sure to leave your trash at the designated location on the property. If a CampKeeper submits an incident report after your stay that details evidence of trash or damage to the campsite or the CampKeeper’s property, Tentrr reserves the right to charge a minimum cleaning fee of $50.
