The Blissfest Campground consists of 25 primitive drive-in and 10 primitive walk-in sites, three resort cabins, and two domes located on the main 40-acre parcel.  Campers have access to all the amenities across the 200+ acres, such as the disc golf course, solar showers, and many trails including the North Country National Scenic Trail.  The season is May through October; private facility rentals are available year-round and include the farmhouse and main stage apartment.  Additionally, the property has agricultural projects, conservation easements, solar trailers, and a 40-acre dedicated forest.
