Relaxing weekend in the woods!
Our weekend camping on Lauren’s farm was great . The site was very clean when we arrived and fire wood we ordered already there. The platform for the tent seemed like it could definitely fit two 3/4 person tents. There’s great hiking in the area and the gorge nearby a lovely spot to cool off.
I was a little concerned about the drive up after reading other reviews, but my Subaru Impreza made it just fine, though I’m not sure I’d want to do it in a vehicle that doesn’t have AWD or higher clearance. The first site, “vistas and vines,” would be easier to get to for most cars. Note that the toilet is a composting/blue bag one rather than an outhouse/pit situation, so if peeing in the woods is a dealbreaker this isn’t the place for you.
Secret forest glen was nice. Here's some warnings, if you want to take your car to your camp site it is quite a feat. It's in my opinion to much of a hike up especially with all your gear so you will need a car. Our car got scratched in a few spots because it is a very tight squeeze. The area is fine but I felt it was missing that extra something that would of made it great. It's not shaded! So being a canopy tent. It's very buggy. The view is nothing to write home about. They provide you with a platform which is great, a picnic table and bench, a pot of water and a Jenga set. The potty is not very private and in a buggy area.
I'm sorry I couldn't say much more about it. It's def fine for camping especially if you like no frills. It's private and in a great area with lots to do in all directions.
My group of 8 had a lovely time at the Secret Forest Glen. It was a great site...tucked away; room for tents; pretty level, with a couple of short, little wooded paths. The fire pit was super handy & the grate that came on top of it was INCREDIBLY shiny & clean. We were so impressed! The picnic table & benches (with added backs!) was surprisingly comfy. There are birds aplenty in the surrounding environs & they were so delightfully vocal (a few even sang night songs)! The beers that are brewed on-site are tasty & conveniently delivered right to you — a brilliant service. We especially loved the cherry & elderflower ales. We also took an easy & very short drive to the Granville Gorge, where we frolicked amongst the stones & took a dip. Highly recommend.
Some things to be aware of:
•The host isn’t kidding about the drive up to the site! It’s bumpy & steep & fairly narrow (we hilariously played banjo chase music while one of our party did trips up & down to transport our gear). But I don’t think I would have felt comfortable trying to drive it with just a regular sedan.
•There are some hornets (wasps?) who seem to live in a wooden box by the picnic table. We did not use said box & just acknowledged that it belonged to them. They did fly up into the top of our canopy & buzz around most days but we remained largely unbothered.
•We spotted quite a few ticks but they were dog ticks not deer ticks — so no real worry.
•The toilet (for solids only) is very close to the tent platform. None of us used it. We all traipsed down one of the aforementioned wooded paths to pee. There also may have been a grocery store trip for a few members of our party during which restrooms were gratefully used. None of us are used to roughing it sans outhouse...& this will probably prevent us from visiting again, despite how pleasant as everything else was. But this fact is clearly mentioned in the listing — just be aware of your own limitations & need for creature comfort.
Thank you for a fun trip! Your hospitality was much appreciated.
We had a great stay at Secret Forest Glen! The campsite was spacious and private, and we had everything we needed for a night away from the city. A cozy campfire and beer delivery made for a perfect night under the stars. Highly recommend! We hope to be back again soon.
Sweet oasis :)
Black Rabbit Farm is a beautiful place to camp out at. Our site was very secluded and had all the amenities as listed on the site. There was a little hiccup (with another party staying at our camp ground) but Lauren’s husband immediately remedied the issue and even left beer and chocolate for us. (Such a sweet gesture, thank you). I would highly recommend this place..and hope to be back again. Thanks for a welcoming stay!
