Easy drive from local area. State forest hiking trailheads at campground are great. Overall good spot. One possible improvement: some kind of screen/barrier of neighbor's house especially fall/winter when there is no foliage. Neighbors front lights were in close proximity and very bright.

Super convenient location to DC and very friendly, helpful host. Nice trails right next to campsite. Kitchen in barn and outhouse were great additions to have.

Great camp spot
We had a great time camping at Bridgette's farm and forest. She and her animals, especially her dog, are very friendly. There are a lot of amenities that are super convenient and I would definitely recommend camping here!

Camping with 11
Our group had a blast camping here! The directions to the site were very clear and the amenities were spot on to the description. We managed to fit 5 tents comfortably and there was plenty of firewood for the weekend. Bridgette was a great host!

Great spot and location. Nice to have the mini kitchen and toilet to make things a little easier. Thanks for setting us up for a great weekend and all the clear communication.

We loved camping at Bridgette's organic farm. Bridgette is a wonderful host and her place is peaceful and clean. We went there with our 2 years old (almost) daughter and our 2 dogs. We were there for 3 nights and we will recommend the place. Easy access to hiking and swimming. We will definitely go back.

Perfect site for group camping!
This campsite was absolutely perfect! It was so nice being the only guests on the property, and Bridgette and her family were so kind and accommodating. The site itself was lovely, with a fire pit, a grate for grilling, plenty of seating, a hammock, and a picnic table. Everything we needed was there! It was wonderful to have a fridge and a toilet just up the hill from the site, and completely separate from the house. I hosted 10 people here for a birthday celebration and we had plenty of space, and everyone loved the set up. We will definitely be back!

Real Camping Near D.C. Area
Beautiful camping area adjacent to an impressive working farm. Excellent amenities, including a nice, open-air kitchen area. Bridgette was an attentive and thoughtful host. I was very surprised to find such a great Hipcamp site so close to the D.C. area.

We absolutely loved our visit here. It was so close to DC and a perfect escape for a night. Bridgette's farm backs up to a state park so we could hop out of our tent and right onto the trails for a leisurely hike, a dip in the swimming hole, and a visit to a idyllic little waterfall. They provided everything we needed and more -- wonderful campsite, ample fire ring and firewood, fridge, sink, composting toilet (!!!), outdoor shower, pots, pans, dishes, and more. Our kiddo absolutely loved it, as did our pup. We did the farm tour with Bridgette and one of her kids and it was great to see how knowledgeable and passionate they are about their home and their work. We definitely plan to be back and would highly recommend to others. Don't sleep on it: this is a total gem. Big thanks to Bridgette and her family for a lovely escape from the city.

We tent camped here as a family of five and our dog on Memorial day weekend. We had a great time! Bridgette was a very attentive host. We had everything we needed plus beautiful scenery and peace and quiet. There is such a comforting rhythm to being on a farm that we found good for the soul. If you enjoy the sounds of nature and a good clean hot shower and don't mind chickens then this is your spot. We loved it!

Great Spot With or Without Kids!
We can’t recommend Bridgette’s Hipcamp enough! Camp next to vegetable beds and a chicken run with an outstanding view of the forest. We love sunset by the fire ring and the morning sunrise over the farm. Don’t worry when you drive into the neighborhood you might feel you took a wrong turn, BUT you didn’t. There’s a hidden gem tucked away, waiting for you. Highly recommend a tour of the farm with Bridgette and a hike into Seneca State Park. We have a nine year old son who loves this spot. Highly recommend camping here with or without kids. Enjoy!

Our visit to the farm was wonderful! Bridgette and her family were more than accommodating, allowing us to throw a little birthday party at the campsite and going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. They even pre-built a fire in the firepit for us so all we had to do was light the kindling. The farm tour was also really special. The toddler in our party especially got a kick out of meeting the chickens. We even got to collect and bring home some fresh eggs and sample some lemony sorrel from the greenhouse. We'd highly recommend a stay at the farm and would love to return someday soon!
