This a traditional site in the heart of the farm next to the family garden with picnic table and fire pit. It is an open space, large enough to comfortably accommodate 5 tents. There are multiple trees perfect for hanging your hammock in the shade. The compost toilet, adjacent to the site, is shared with another campsite. Parking is next to our barn about 100ft from the site

Jennifer's property is beautiful! A blessing from God. Our stay was so peaceful. The campsite is just lovely, and well kept.. Apparently it can get extremely cold at night, but if you pack accordingly you should be fine. We loved everything about our stay and definitely will be returning!
Absolutely beautiful organic farm in a secluded pocket of wilderness. The site / view were great . Would recommend to anyone who wants a peaceful night under the stars off the beaten path. A delicious hot /breakfast the next morning was a great perk as well !
Jennifer’s farm was great! We were there with a group of 10, on a yoga retreat. The space was beautiful, the cows are so funny! We also did a farm to table breakfast the last morning and it was super yummy.
The main house was closer to the campsites than expected, but we did not feel our privacy was affected in any way.
Also, the toilet/shower situation was awesome and super convenient.
Beautiful spot with kind hosts!
This was our first time using HipCamp and it was great. We loved our campsite at Possum Tail! The spot was beautiful, and was well equipped with a fire grate, picnic table, toilet area, and an outdoor shower (such a nice touch!). Jennifer & Brian were great hosts and very kind— and super accommodating when we arrived in the pouring rain! Our dog also loved it!
The space was perfect for our 8-people group and the compost toilet, table and shower made things easier with our young kids. Plus it has de appeal of the farm. Jennifer hand her family were very responsive and really nice.
We would highly recommend staying at Possum Farm camp. The view from the site is incredible. The site was very well maintained and offered great amenities. We would highly recommend the farm to table meal. Thank you so much for an awesome stay!
The property is beautiful and Jennifer and her family were lovely hosts. The ground is level and there was easy access to the composting toilet, a picnic table, and the firepit. We purchased dinner when we booked and the home cooked meal was delicious and substantial.
Staying here was incredible! We felt like we had plenty of our own space, but also had Jennifer and family close by if we needed anything. The composting toilet was convenient, and having a hot shower in the morning was amazing. The land itself is beautiful, and waking up to a view of the farm was something we enjoyed. Though we didn't opt for a tour of the farm, we really wish we would have, and will do so next time! Jennifer and her family were great hosts, attentive to anything we might need to make our stay better. 10/10 would recommend!
