The Facilities

Yes, it is field grass, however.  It is not lush but dry and rocky.  Just roughing it on the pasture.


If you wish to be on grass or have power and water, even sewer,  you can book a site here:

Regrettably, we are unable to accommodate children on the Farmstead. As a working farm, machinery and animals create potential safety for younger people.  We have a minimum age requirement of 18 years. Your understanding in prioritizing the safety of all is greatly appreciated.

We are pleased to accommodate one dog per RV booking.  There is an additional charge extra per night for your furry friend.  We also kindly request your cooperation in adhering to our Doggy Rules, which can be found here.

In the field, the dog must not bark at all, as the area is located within the cow’s pastures.

Yes, we do allow generators, but be respectful of your fellow campers. We will still require quiet time from 10 pm until 7 am. So no generators during the night and only when it is necessary during the day time.

If you are fully self-contained, this is a perfect area for you,  since this area doesn’t have restroom facilities.  There is a short walk to the main campground for the facilities. 

Check-In Time: 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Check-Out Time: 7:00 AM to 11:00 AM

No, this is off-grid.  If you need wifi, be sure to bring your own.

Yes, any guest who is staying more than 2 nights in a nonseptic hook-up can use the dump station for free, when you depart.  Guests staying only one night will be asked to pay a fee.

Quiet time around the Farmstead is from 10 pm until 7 am. Please use soft voices during this time and respect your fellow guests.
