Pitch your tent in one of our beautiful grass  covered fields and enjoy access to 263 acres of pure nature. You can go fishing, swimming, hiking, or sit back and enjoy the sounds of nature on this farm out in the country.  You can even go wading in a beautiful creek.  Get off the beaten path! If you live in the city, you will see stars, in the night sky, that you never get to see where you live. 35 minutes from Millers Ferry on the Alabama River.  50 minutes from Montgomery, the state capital, and 30 minutes from Cambrian Ridge golf course on the Robert Trent Golf Trail.  We are horse friendly and have a pen where you can keep your horses. Stalls are in the plans and hopefully should be completed sometimes late next year!

Should you be interested, we also offer flowers, fruit trees, crepe myrtles, and other plants, for sale. Just ask, and I will be happy to show you what we have.

PLEASE REMEMBER, MURCHISON FARM IS A PRIVATELY OWNED CAMPGROUND. DO NOT TAKE ANYTHING AWAY THAT YOU DID NOT BRING IN! With the exception of any additional items you might purchase., such as flowers, plants, or Fat Lighter Kindling. Please adhere to this rule, so that we are not forced to raise our camping rates. We try diligently to provide a Top Quality Environment, at the lowest rates possible! Thank YOU!

We have made some major changes, that began this year! We Opened our Camping Season on March 1st and now extend it throughout the entire year! We have eliminated the hunting lease and are now a Wildlife Preserve!

We are focused on a major effort to vastly increase our Wildflower populations as we have begun planting a minimum of 1 million new seeds, each year for the next 3 years! The colors should be awesome! We are planting strawberry patches, Blueberry bushes, and Fruit Trees, as well as improving existing stock! 

Now is the perfect time to come and enjoy exploratory hikes and leisurely walks along our many roads and trails! There are very few tall grassy areas and most of the ground is still visible, from this years controlled burns! The number of plants blossoming will steadily increase throughout this growing season, providing multi colored eye candy! 

We have to boats available for rent, for those who would like to go boating on the ponds. Boat rental is $10 per day. Please let me know, at your arrival, if you would like to make a boat rental. You are responsible for Your boating party's safety and well being.  If you are not experienced with boating, please do not try a boat rental until after you have achieved some experience and are knowledgeable of boating safety!

We also have some bundles of Fat Pine Lighter Heart kindling, should you care to purchase one of those. It always comes in handy starting campfires, wherever your go!

If you have not been exposed to the Corona Virus, we also offer a secluded area to come and lay low, until the crisis has passed! We are not gouging prices and we ask that you not come, if you have been exposed to the Virus, until you have passed through adequate quarantine! 

IMPORTANT : 

If You are getting tired of those 4 walls yet, Murchison Farm's Wildlife Preserve and Primitive Campground offers a Great Place to take a break, and get Out into the Wide Open Outdoors! Don't waste time, make Your Social Distancing Experience exciting and full of new experiences! If you are interested in some of our current Blossoms catering to Pollinators. I caught some photos of a huge Green Moth, just shortly after it exited the cocoon. It's wings were mostly dried out, except for the very ends. They were still curling out. Would have been Nat. Geo. awesome if the full event had been videoed! If You look at the Photos, compare the Moth's size to the Pick-up Tire! I would love to see You add some of Your Own photos!!If You like to Fish, You might want to book early. We only have 2 areas with Bass, Brim, etc... And only 2 areas where You can Fish Ultra-Light. Each camping party will be assigned only one of these sites.

We will have very little interaction with guest, other than an occasional check to make sure all is well.

We Use several Booking Venues, so please remember bookings will be first come first served! Hope to See You Soon!

Great getaway for a family and good fishing. We had a blast camping next to one of the ponds and catching a good number of bass
