We now have the Camping Cabin available for rent. It's a full sized Cabin with a queen sized bed, a couch and a heater or fan. It's very insulated so you can stay comfortable year round. - Voted best Hipcamp in Indiana to visit for 4 years. - Listed on Rachael Ray Magazine's "8 of America's Coolest Campgrounds" Kids are people too - Please include all people when booking with us. We offer a "Camping Cabin", The "Cozy Camping Cottage" or tent camping in Black Walnut Grove, in an open field, in the woods, or a shady grove. We like to interact with people or you can keep to yourself and have a quiet getaway in the woods. Sorry, but the tree house isn't available to rent since it is my home. I may rent it out in the future. Also in progress is the "Dome" We are on a solar powered, off the grid 30 acre homestead that has 24 acres of wooded land and 6 acres of groomed land. Come explore our land and relax in the "Tree Web", see the 2 story tree house that I live in, have fun on the tire swing, or just sit and enjoy all that nature has to offer. You can explore our interesting topography that has close to 100 foot of elevation changes, our (mostly) dry creek system that starts with 2 springs that drain into 3 sinkholes or walk 3 miles of trails (if you follow each trail from end to end). We love groups - Host your event here or have a group gathering with all your friends and family. We have spaces large enough to host hundreds of people. We welcome pets for camping, but no pets allow in the Camping Cabin. Also be aware that we have 2 friendly dogs on the land that roam freely. - 3.5 miles to Marengo Cave - 7 miles to the Blue River (canoes, rafting and swimming) - 30 minutes to Patoka Lake - 37 miles west of Louisville - 13 miles north of Interstate 64

Great experience on beautiful land
We loved staying at Kerry’s site. The area was beautiful and secluded, with lots of great areas for biking and hiking nearby. Kerry was a great host and stopped by with more firewood for us when we asked. We loved the land and all of the friendly dogs that were around! The outhouses were better than expected, and this is a site we would definitely visit again in the future. We went in the fall but I bet it would be gorgeous and lush in the spring or summer!

I go camping every fall with my son. He’s 12 years old, and this was probably the best trip we’ve been on. Kerry is a fantastic host! He is accommodating also has your best interest in mind! Beautiful land, incredible structures, and the best dogs ever! The web is not to be missed! We will definitely be back!

My son and I loved Camping with Kerry. His big dog, Maynard and Maynard’s brother hung around all the time and were big fluffy guard dogs. His camp sites are spaced nice and far apart so your party has privacy. The land is stunningly beautiful. You are truly off the grid. There is no power unless you bring your own. Internet is sketchy, so you are truly “getting away from it all.” There’s enough satellite/internet to make calls and texts. The tour of the land is worth it. And the sky net is fun. Kerry is a super wonderful host.

The perfect getaway!
My Fiancé (as of this weekend!!) and I, really enjoyed our stay on Kerry’s land. It was the perfect peaceful getaway. The cabin was beautiful and very well kept. Kerry was such a kind, helpful host. We will definitely make our way back here, as we look forward to seeing this awesome property in all seasons.

Great for camping with our dog! Per
We had such a great time here! Kerry really takes his visitors' experience seriously and with great thought. Our campsite was very secluded and perfect! Bathrooms are very clean and they seem to be accessible at every location. The land is gorgeous and the dogs on site were so cute and fun to be around Our dog Luna loved having doggy company and loved being able to roam freely. We are excited to try the syrup that we bought from the land too! We are already planning to come back. Thanks for a great fall weekend and I hope you enjoyed our beef stew kerry!

Thanks for having us!
We loved camping at Kerry’s HipCamp. Spots are decently spread out and it was quiet. Kerry was an excellent host. We didn’t get cell reception with our provider, but other providers may be different.

Great camping, great host, A+!
We loved camping here. You can hike, swing on the tire swing, hang out in the tree web, and hang out with a couple of the friendliest pups around. The owner is very friendly and accommodating, and the sites are beautiful and spread out. We highly recommend it!

We will be back!
Kerry’s land was an absolutely perfect place for myself and my friends to catch up, reunite and relax. The land itself is beautiful and laid out in such a way that even with other groups on the property you still felt secluded enough. Kerry as a host was amazing. He clearly cares about his guests experience and his land. His permaculture practices are making great use of the land. Kerry is friendly and informative and was overall an excellent host. It’s is a place I can see myself coming to relax for years to come.

Natural wonders galore!
Idyllic location for a camping getaway. Kerry is a thoughtful, friendly, and conscientious host who offers so many natural wonders to campers. Easy hour’s drive from Louisville, but such a beautiful forest that you feel like you are far away. We couldn’t have asked for a better spot to explore and enjoy nature.

Pros and Cons
Overall a nice place to stay but pricy for a group or big family. Pros: big area to camp, trees webs are cool, showers are warm. Owner showing us around Cons: Price way to high for a large family/ group, not much to do on property, driving area a bit small for a large van and trailer, the local dogs, no dumpster

Relaxing camping experience.
This is 6 years of camping at Hipcamp Happy Hallow Homestead. We've always had plenty of room and lots of fun. The kids have spent hours in the net hanging out with their cousins and friends. Our dogs love this area. Kerry is an excellent host! Thanks for everything.

Camping in a Cabin at Happy Hollow
Such a sweet cabin on a beautiful plot of land. A great way for us to ease back into camping after having a baby! The heater kept us cozy during the first frost of the season, and it was so nice to walk around the property. Quiet, clean, and plenty of friendly dogs to hang out with! Can’t wait to return.
