Heritage Farms was founded in 1848 by my great great uncle, Lawson Waterman. I am the 5th generation to farm the land and carry on the legacy that started 174 years ago. Each generation has done something different with the land. My father started raising Christmas trees on the farm in 1955. I took over in 1979 growing Christmas trees and other crops. Today our focus is agrotourism. Besides growing Christmas trees we host a Fairy Festival each summer, run a once-a-month Handcrafted Flea Market in the summer months and celebrate Fall with our month-long Pumpkin Pandemonium in October. We added camping 8 years ago after a trip to Denmark where we saw our first camping shelters. THINGS WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO KNOW BEFORE BOOKING: 1. Sites 1 through 6 have a shelter and room for 2 tents. Sites A through J are tent sites only with room for 3 tents. All sites are limited to a maximum of 6 campers 2.

This campsite is absolutely gorgeous! Check-in was easy and everyone was super helpful and friendly! Depending on what campsite you reserve, it might be a bit of a walk to get to, but they provide wheelbarrows to help transport your stuff. We stayed at a tent site right at the edge of the property and it was right next to a nice little trail that is part of CVNP. Overall, highly recommend staying here!

First time - will be back!
Overall great site. A mix of primitive, open platform and mini chalets overlooking a Christmas tree farm from gentle rolling hills. The sites are all clean and while you can see some of the other sites from yours, they generally aren't too close together. As an area native, I took advantage of a 3 mile trail that one side of the property butts up against. Everything seems well run, and as an operation that is more than just camping, there are other amenities/activities depending on when you go. I camped in the Fall, so their "Pumpkin Pandemonium" event was in full swing with corn maze, pumpkins and other stuff. I do believe there is a small Farmer's Market on the grounds during the summer as well. As a commercial operation - be aware there is a pavilion on the grounds. The night I stayed there was a party going on with tractor rides and celebrations into the night. Everything got shut down right at 9 though and then it was back to the sounds of Fall insects. Well run, clean, great experience and will camp here again.

Scenic, quite and close to OTET. Easy to get to and great service upon arrival. Nice to not be subjected to RV’s and loud generators. Shelter’s are a great place to organize and pack up before heading out. Highly recommend.

Great Weekend with the Kids and Dog
I spent an extended weekend at Heritage Tree Farm with my two boys and our dog. We had a wonderful experience tent camping. Our site was located on a hill that had a lovely view overlooking the farm and the central location was perfect for daily adventures. I would absolutely choose this location to stay again in the future.

Camping amongst the trees and stars
This place was gorgeous and very accommodating. After a few hikes in Cuyahoga National Park we landed here. The fire under the stars and hut off the ground kept us warm. Amazing stay! 10/10 recommend

Beautiful 3-season camping!
Absolutely beautiful camping spot, especially with the fall foliage! Carol and George are very friendly and helpful, delivering firewood and/or gallons of drinking water directly to our campsite, purchased using a QR code posted at each site. This is my second time camping here and it won’t be the last.

Camping in the CVNP!
We love camping at Heritage Farms, it’s beautiful, simple, quaint, and so very tranquil. The rolling hills, pine trees, spaced out sites, and surrounding CVNP make this a unique pace to “be”.

Beautiful property. Unfortunately I couldn’t use the spot I reserved . The site was located on the side of a hill. The site should have been designated as hammock only site. No way you could have enjoyed sleeping in a tent on the side of a steep hill.

Lovely site on an evergreen farm
We had a wonderful time camping on this beautiful property. It's very unique to camp on a Christmas tree farm and they also had a pumpkin patch and corn maze for the fall season. The hosts were very helpful and the property is gorgeous. Keep in mind that there's no water at the site (bring your own) and you'll need to bring your items to the site (they provide wheelbarrows), but this didn't take away from our experience at all. Highly recommend!

Great camping in CVNP
I stayed in campsite H. I would honestly recommend any site other than H, unless it’s the summer time. H got really shaded which would be perfect for the summer time (I was there in October so it was cold). H is also on a bit of a hill so it was a bit uncomfortable to sleep. Overall, this place is awesome. The property and Christmas trees are so beautiful. We got to see the leaves change and talked to the owner and learned about Christmas tree farming. There is also a trail right next to the property called the Tree Farm Trail that I highly recommend (~3 miles, flat). The hosts responded very quickly (considering that they were very busy with the pumpkin patch) and all the workers there were friendly. A person there helped with my dog while I used the restroom. It’s a bummer that you can’t bring firewood (I understand why since it’s a tree farm) but they will bring it to you, which I thought was VERY convenient. I’m so glad I got to stay here, since there aren’t many places to camp in CVNP and plan to be back soon.

This was the third time I camped here this summer and fall. Love the farm and camp sites! Very spaced out and seem to always have fun events on weekends to attend if you have time!

Great experience!
We loved camping at Heritage Farms. Owners were available to help us find our campsite and deliver the firewood we had purchased. The property is beautiful. Each campsite was far enough away from others to offer privacy and quiet. I liked it so much, I booked another camping trip for the following month.

Very lovely evening after a day biking in Cuyahoga. It was nice that there were restaurants within walking distance. I would consider this a “glamping” experience, which is definitely what we were in the mood for.

We loved camping here on the tree farm. There were other campers but there is a good amount of space between each site so you aren't bothered by others. The staff was friendly and helpful as well. The site was clean and the views were gorgeous.

A Gem
The photos don’t do this place justice. Heritage Farms is rich in character and charm. The campsites are spread out and private, tucked away throughout a Christmas tree farm with scenic views. The farm was easy to find and despite the Pumpkin Pandemonium festivities going on, check in and parking/unloading was smooth. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful (thanks, Randy!) The farm is just a short jaunt to Peninsula and provides quick access to some of the best trailheads in the park. Can’t wait to stay here again.

Beautiful camp grounds!
Our experience was great! We had to check in late so it was well after dark when we were trying to find and set up our campsite. Carol and George made it easy for us! There was a white line on the ground that lead us up to the campsites, and they had left a camp light at our site so we could find it easier. It was also very easy to buy firewood. It was cheaper than it was in town, and they delivered it to the campsite! The tree farm was beautiful and had very close access to CVNP!

I had a great stay. I rode in on a bicycle and only camped for one night but I really enjoyed it. I had a site with a lean too and loved it. The place was well kept, neat, and they even had a small broom and dust pan to sweep it out in the morning. They had the water and wood I ordered at the site. The woman who ran the place was a very nice woman who even noticed how hot it was and offered me a bottle of water when I rode in. Generally nice people!

Beautiful camp near many parks
I stayed at a site with a shelter which was great as I arrived late and didn't have to worry about setting up my tent. It is very quiet, with no traffic sounds and there are so many parks to explore nearby. The hosts were very gracious. There was a slight mix up about the firewood and they immediately fixed the issue. I'd stay here again next time I visit the area.
