About Tune Farm's Whistle Stop Camp
With easy on/off-stone's-throw access to I-65, wending its way from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes, Tune Farm offers road-weary travelers and adventurers a bevy of bucolic options for an overnight stay.
Located in the tiny whistle stop (and those trains do whistle) ghost town of Lacon (now home to the quirky and quintessentially southern "Lacon Trade Day" flea market) in Morgan County, Alabama, the farm is just 45 minutes south of Huntsville and an hour north of Birmingham.
We are in the process of restoring the 4,000 sq ft 1919 craftsman farmhouse for lodging and the 6,000 sq ft barns as an event space. While we are still very much a "work-in-progress", we thought it would be fun to make the farm land (we have 260 acres) and barn available to hip campers.
if your happy place is in the great wide open, choose a lovely spot beneath the canopy of a century-old pecan tree or under a cathedral of stars in the back forty or almost anywhere your heart desires. If you prefer something a bit rustic, but still want a roof over your head, make your pallet in a barn - and pray for inclement weather, so you can fall asleep to the sound of rain on a tin roof.
At Tune Farm, you are limited only by your imagination and by the property lines of our 260 acres. Ya'll come!!!

The vibe at Tune Farm's Whistle Stop Camp
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Lisa the host and I hit it off immediately, and I had such a wonderful visit at Tune Farm. The farm has been in her family for awhile, and Lisa is currently converting the place into a wedding destination. There’s so much to see on the farm—antique barns, a pond, a marshy area, and tons of wide open space for you to set up camp. The farm house is gorgeous, and there are lots of inviting places to sit and watch the sunset, play some games, or curl up and read a book. The chickens at Tune Farm have total free range of the place, and they make the best eggs Ive ever tasted. I cannot recommend Tune Farm enough—I will definitely return here!
