Willoway Farm is a small scale organic vegetable &and flower farm established in 2007, located 35 minutes north of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It's situated upon a glacial hill over looking a Milwaukee river flowage to the south and the kettle moraine state forest to the northwest. Our 8 acre land with cut flower & heirloom vegetable garden is surrounded by over 200 acres of uninhabited land, ( Farmland & state wild land). We are just 5 minutes from hiking trails into the state forest, which is beautiful all times of the year! A 55 acre secluded lake with public access is only 1.5 miles from Willoway - we hear the fishing is good. New now is across the street is a 283 acre land trust- Biehl Nature Preserve on Lake Twelve. The roads near the farm traverse through mixed forest and farm land with only slight traffic offering exceptional bicycling! The camp space is primitive and private yet offers gentle vistas upon the surrounding landscape with often both amazing sunrises and sunsets - situated upon the high point of the farm nestled in a young apple orchard. We have a spacious outhouse on site. We feel so fortunate live and farm where we do & love offering the natural beauty it offers to others. Our garden is lush with flowers, herbs and vegetables great for observing our plethora of pollinators. There are so many places to visit within 10 miles of our Campsite. A favorite is Riveredge Nature Center only 9.6 miles offering 3 miles of trails including 1 mile along Milwaukee River. Riveredge Nature Center has vast landscapes with so many lovely native wild flowers.

The farm is really beautiful and was a lovely experience for my kids' first time camping! The campsite is quiet, with some nice trees for shade/cover from wind and rain. There was a curious sheep who watched us walk to the outhouse, which really thrilled the kids (and the adults, too). Our hosts were communicative and understanding of a change of plans we had to make. I would definitely camp here again!

Lovely camping spot on a Wisconsin farm! Plenty of space to set up tents among the trees. Picnic table with a bench and fire pit were great for preparing/eating meals (we brought our own grate to put over the fire and a small camping stove). Wheelbarrow of wood was available for $20, also wood available for sale in the area, including at Harrington Beach State Park. The outhouse was in good shape and just down the hill from the site. Water pump was also down the hill and easy to use. The water was yellowish -- probably okay and has to do with iron/manganese but we weren't 100% sure we could drink it, though we did in the end. May be good to bring some big water containers with you. The spot was pretty quiet and relaxing at night except for occasional road traffic, some gunshots from the local gun/fishing club, and some people arguing at a nearby farm. We wish we had more of a chance to interact with hosts and also to get a tour of the farm, like it shows in the photos, but we followed instructions and didn't explore too much. Overall had a nice stay and would recommend to others. Thanks for hosting us!

Nice camping spot and well maintained with good views but the mosquitos were unstoppable - they swarmed all aver us - we had to leave due to mosquitos and impending storms - owner would not refund us and stopped replying to our messages sadly.

We SO adore the sweet camp space at the top of the hill! Our boys love exploring and we adults love the views and clear skies! So peaceful!

What a great spot! I wish I would have had more time to spend here. Being in this camp perched on a hilltop is awesome. Great vistas and a wonderfully secluded setting. Excellent host family, host dogs, host wildlife. It’s all just great.

If you want to camp in a spot where you will be the only camp on rolling north Kettle acreage, you can’t do better than Willoway. It is rustic and wonderful.

I’ll even give props to the architectural antique curated Thunderbox. Zen pooping at its finest.

I’ll do my best to get back for a multi-night stay.

Beautiful weekend for 6

We loved our weekend stay in that grove on top of the hill. 3 couples for the weekend, we enjoyed a beautiful view and our hosts' hospitality. We drove to a state park along Lake Michigan for a beach day and then dinner around the campfire. When the summer morning breeze comes through the farm and the sun is just right, it can't be beat. Don't forget your bug spray though (worth the bites)

My family has been going to Willoway each summer for several years. It is a beautiful place—the campsite is perched on a hilltop overlooking a valley, there are shade trees to tent under, lots of songbirds and often sandhill cranes. Secluded, and perfect for a trip to the countryside.
