We had a great time at Button Farm! The location could not be more convenient to mountain bike trails (….and also to a Walmart when you discover you forgot your tent poles). Had a great time reading near the pot bellied pigs. Bring ear plugs for the geese if you’re a light sleeper. We will be back!

This was our second time at Button Farm. We love it because it’s so close to DC and has a great private campsite with a big campfire ring and animals. The kids love it. It was freezing cold this time, but we still enjoyed roasting marshmallows by the fire and seeing the stars.

This is a beautiful camping site convenient to Baltimore and D.C. The farm has only two sites that are far apart, so you have tons of space and privacy. The fire pit is large with plenty of seating, and there is ample room to pitch multiple tents. Steven was very kind and helpful, and we appreciated the generous amount of high quality firewood that was placed at the site (optional advance purchase). Highly recommend this site for more space and privacy than you can generally get at a campground.

So much space and in perfect conditionChecking out the enormous pigs

Lovely, spacious campsite. We wanted somewhere private for our first camping trip with our 7 month old and this was an ideal spot. Steve was very friendly and available to answer any questions. Our kiddo loved seeing the pigs and geese too! We hope to be back soon.

Thank you to Steven and Button Farm for a wonderful stay.

My wife and I wanted to try mountain biking at Schaeffer Farms Trailhead so we booked a one night stay at Button Farm.

Mountain biked Saturday, arrived at Button Farm later in the day, Steven was a gracious host and showed us our site, we set up camp, grabbed some snacks and bike/walked down to Seneca Creek/Black Rock Mill to rinse off and cool down.

Headed back to the farm, grabbed some dinner at Pho House in Germantown, camped the night away, woke up to a beautiful morning on the farm.

Packed up our tent and headed out for another beautiful ride at Schaffer Farms Trailhead.

Ideal location if you are looking to camp/hike/bike in the area.

Look forward to bringing a group back and checking out the other campsite!

Thank you Steven and Button Farm!

Great, friendly host. Beautiful space. Lots of great hiking/biking trails that connect directly to the farm (And great guidance from Steven on picking a route). Looking forward to staying at Button Farm again.

I’ve been itching to take Genny Jean, my 1968 vintage travel trailer, out for an overnight stay. I found a local farm on Hip Camp for her 1st experience. Button Farm is a living history museum in Maryland. It is quiet and quaint. A great place for a quick, no frills getaway. They only have a portapotty so bring your own showering set up. The host was responsive and easy to reach. I enjoyed my time there and plan on going back one day soon.

Very much enjoyed this 2nd visit to Button Farm, and Steven again was a welcoming and gracious host. Despite arriving on one of the hottest days of the summer, a brief evening thunderstorm dropped the temp by 25 degrees, with a cool breeze in the roof top tent and perfect for a good night’s rest. I had looked forward to exploring some of the nearby trails that I had seen last time, and having a close look at Black Rock Mill, which made for a nice walkabout the next day. With another storm arriving on the 2nd evening, I still have not been able to enjoy the panoramic view of the night sky, which will surely motivate a return trip. Great stay, and highly recommended.

Our 2 night stay was wonderful! Steve met us at the entrance to the farm then took us over to the site which was large, neat and beautiful. It was quiet, peaceful and filled with bunnies, a fox, geese and pigs to keep our two small kids entertained. We hiked the Seneca Creek trails and even swam for a bit. There is a large fire pit (no grate) and two picnic tables. Steve was quick to respond to messages, friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend and we will be back!
