Great family camping
Our family of four (boys 2 & 4 yrs) had a great stay at Shine & Rise. Early Oct delivered perfect weather — comfortably cool, almost no rain and no mosquitos! Spacious, wooded camp site not visible to any others on the property. Handy platform and benches. Jay and is family are very friendly and welcoming and easy to communicate with.
Awesome way to relax and unplug
We spent my birthday weekend here just relaxing and taking a break from our busy lives. The site was large, private and clean and Jay was a great host. There are wooded paths to walk and we also walked through the farm area and saw all of the animals. We found a large Antique Mall not far from the camp and there are also several boat ramps within a 10 or 15 minute drive. We would definitely stay here again.
Peaceful and oh so cozy
This has been an all time favorite stay of mine! I recently got into hipcamp but have been finding campsites for a while now and this place is great if you want camping but with something special added. The site itself was so spacious and having electrical was nice to refresh a few charging bricks. My partner and I have been on a trek across the east coast and this camp was one after just under a week of others. If you're looking for a camp that feels like a perfect blend of woodsy and comfort I would recommend here a thousand times over.
We really liked this farm. It is a nice place to stay even if you are just looking for a wooded, fairly secluded campsite. But if you are into sustainable agriculture, it is a real treat. I'm not sure i've seen a real, working farmer as knowledgeable about and committed to permaculture practices as Jay. It is an inspiration.
As an added bonus, my three-year-old and her friend loved the extremely friendly ducks and turkeys.
Take note, our site had no potable water, bathroom, porta-potty, latrine, or anything. We dug holes in the woods to do our business. We were fine with that, but not everyone is, so be aware. Also, if you roll in late at night, be sure to have water with you so you don't have to make the walk for it until daylight.
Definitely choose this place!
The pictures don’t do this place justice. It’s absolutely amazing. Jay is a salt of the earth person with a wonderful heart. I’m so glad I could stay the night here. I wish I could’ve stayed longer and enjoy the farm more. It’s a truly magical place.
Labor day weekend camping!
Jay and his family were awesome! He met us on the street and showed us to our campsite. The site was exactly as advertised and well enough off the road that we could feel like it was our own little piece of paradise for labor day weekend. He also hooked us up with some wood for our fire. The family gave us a tour of their farm and even introduced us to some fruits we had never heard of. 10 out of 10 would highly recomend!!!
We are grateful for Jay, for his family and for the land where we camped for a few nights. Jay is gracious, resourceful, dynamic, and bright, and you can tell that these attributes are well reflected in the land that is being stewarded by this family with care and joy. We chose this farm as a stop off point between the Outer Banks and Maryland and found a lot of clarity in being here. We are hoping to one day also help to heal the land we inhabit and to share it with others who need peace and space. I highly recommend taking a farm tour with Jay and learning about his environmental justice work and plant knowledge. The site was clean and spacious with a generous fire pit with an electrical hookup and a really nice hose. 10/10 recommend.
