This land was part of a 200-acre working dairy cattle farm up until around 1960 by the Burdette family. It is located in a small village that was once known as Browningsville. In 1862-1864, the low lying area which is now used as our campground is believed to have been an Outpost Camp used by the Confederate Soldiers as a stopping point while on their march to and from Gettysburg during the Civil War in 1863. If you walk the trails at night, you might hear the noises of the Commander Jubal Early's soldiers carrying on as this was there last night before embarking for "The Battle of Monocacy" in 1864 to defeat Major General Lew Wallace's Union forces. The property now is a working horse farm with a breeding program for thoroughbred race horses. There are 4-6 babies born every spring and they live on the farm until they are 2 years old and then go off to the racetrack. Who knows, you might even get to meet a future Kentucky Derby winner.

The property was amazing. It was great to feel like you were in a private wooded setting with beautiful outdoor lighting and to have horses close enough to visit and watch. Would definitely stay here again!

Keith is really nice and his land is beautiful. His fresh eggs cooked in our cast iron were also a great addition. We would stay here anytime. Our spot was very secluded and right next to a stream, you really couldn't ask for more.

Picturesque horse farm in MD
Such a beautiful place to stay, just outside of Damascus and a reasonable commuting distance to DC. Friendly host, all the RV needs met, very level site, and the wonder of horses all around. Will definitely come back here next time we visit or pass through this area.

Wonderful autumn campsite!
We had a wonderful time camping here! Keith is a wonderful host and has clearly put a lot of effort into his campsites. The lights on the campgrounds add great ambience. We had easy access to water, electrical oulets, and a port-a-potty. The property is beautiful and has plenty of friendly animals! Our dog loved walking the trails near the small creek. This has been our favorite Hipcamp spot so far. We would love to come back and camp here again and highly recommend it (-:

My friends and I had a wonderful experience tent camping at Keith’s horse farm. Keith was very hospitable and checked in on from time to time. We enjoyed the amount of privacy we had from the other tent sites.

What a fantastic experience! We had a wonderful time tent camping at Keith’s farm with our kids. Our site was wooded and relatively secluded, and located a few feet from a nice babbling brook. The site itself was HUGE, very well-lit from the LED string lights above, and very comfortable for putting up our tent. There were a few tree roots to navigate but we set our 12x12 tent on a tarp and it was quite comfy. The picnic table and fire pit were well maintained. Our site was a short walk to the water hose and port-a-potty which was very clean! Our kids loved playing on the trampoline and rope swing. Keith met us on the first night with a dozen fresh eggs…a very nice touch! We let the kids run around and play without any worries and they had a blast. Would definitely recommend this to any family going tent camping with small children.

Camping with a dog.
Keith is a wonderful host, very helpful with anything you may need. His eggs are so tasty you may never go back to store bought again. The land is beyond beautiful, horse’s in the fields, plenty trails to hike. With a creek that runs right next to the camp sites. The camp grounds are spacious and clean. My dog was over the moon with the horses and trails. We will happy to visit Hunters Park again.

We had a great stay in the group camp site with friends. Our kids loved the trampoline and swings, petting the horses, seeing the chickens, and especially playing in the nearby creek. Keith also gave us a great recommendation for us to a nearby regional park where we were able to rent boats and swim with the kids. Will definitely plan another trip back.

Private nature retreat!
We stayed on site 5 and loved it! That site is set apart from the other 4. Only downside is it’s a little bit of a walk to the porta potty. The horses were beautiful!! The lights in the trees give a great ambiance. I forgot my extension cord and Keith was gracious enough to loan one. My doggie LOVED it!! Plenty of space for her to play.

We have used so many hip camps and this was by far our favorite! Keith’s ranch is beautiful and the RV site was clean and easy to navigate. His horses are stunning and his two barn cats walked the farm with us. The town of Damascus is nice to visit and for anyone with kids there is an small amusement park and rodeo near by. We will be back!

We truly enjoyed ourselves at Hunters Park. T2,3,4 . My group and I are primitive campers and this was a glamping experience for us. Electricity 20 amp, running water, porta potty, fire wood and fresh eggs. The property is very well maintained and our area was private. We enjoyed our walk around the horse pastures. The property is beautiful. You will not regret staying here. Keith is an awesome host who answered my many questions. We will definitely be back.

Sites T2,3 and T4. The property is very well maintained. Upon arrival Keith greeted my guest and guided us to the campsite. The landscape is beautiful. There was running water,very clean porta potty,firewood and pit. and fresh eggs for booking. The lights illuminated the campsite at night beautifully. 20 amp electric was also available. We had a group of 11 people. My friends and I enjoyed the site so much we will be returning in the winter.

Our family enjoyed camping here, we stayed at a site with a trampoline, beautiful lights that surrounded the site a swing and we were also close to the horses. Keith made sure everything was good during our stay and another cool thing was getting fresh eggs from the chicken coops. Our kids enjoyed it, we’ll be back soon for another adventure!

Group site T2,T3,T4 I was with my group of experienced campers. Let me just say everyone loved the campsite. The site is very well maintained. We are primitive campers and the luxury of water, porta potty and electricity was glamping within a primitive environment. 5***** The space was more than enough room for 11 of us. Some of the group took advantage of the abundance of trees and hammock camped. We will definitely be back. Keith is an awesome host who answered my many questions . Everyone had fresh eggs for breakfast We love this place ❤

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Camping on Keith’s horse farm couldn’t have been better! We tent camped with our two kids who loved petting the horses, visiting the chickens, bouncing on the trampoline, and playing in the creek! We stayed at the group site which was very big, close to the portapotty, quiet, and nestled in the trees. The drive in is a little bumpy, but okay if you go slow. So serene and beautiful! Keith met us on arrival to show us the farm and was available by message. We would definitely recommend, and would love to stay here again. Our only regret is that we were so busy visiting family in the area we didn’t get as much time relaxing at the campsite as we’d have wished!

Keith’s spot was amazing! And Keith was very kind and communicative leading up to the trip. The shady trees near the horses was fab for hammocking and hanging out!

Cozy wooded camping near horses!
Keith’s property was amazing! We were right near some beautiful horses but tucked away in the shady woods which was perfect for hammocking on a hot weekend. Keith was extremely friendly and available for communication whether it was arranging our site beforehand and guiding us to the spot when we arrived. Thanks for your hospitality Keith! We really loved the twinkly fairy lights which illuminated our whole time there.

Wooded area with beautiful horses!
This was an amazing campsite! We were on our own section of Keith’s land but still close to a port a potty and portable water. Keith was super friendly and accessible - he has around to answer any questions and very flexible when we had changes with our plans. The space was beautiful!

Great for families with young kids!
We loved Keith’s property! Our kids loved visiting the horses and picking their own eggs from the chicken coup. There was also a tire swing and a trampoline. Plenty of firewood around, which was great. Keith was an excellent host; checked on us a few times, but wasn’t intrusive. Even though our site was fairly close to the other campers, it didn’t bother us at all. Overall, a great experience!
