With beautiful views of nature and the Ouachita Mountains, and a furnished bell tent with air-conditioning and situated on an authentic 2,500 year old Native American teepee mound, we're sure that you will enjoy your glamping stay. Our 16 feet diameter bell tent includes a queen size bed, nightstand, small chest, two comfy chairs, mini refrigerator with freezer, microwave, coffee maker, and air conditioning. A massage table is also included. Two twin size beds may be added for additional guests. Outside is a patio table with four chairs, a grill, firepit, and fire ring for traditional campfires. Enjoy fishing at Big Pond (catch and release) or at Irons Fork River, participate in our sustainable farming and building workshops, and watch the calves play on our working cattle farm. Look for crystals and check out the ancient mounds of Native Americans. Listen for the calls of the coyote. When a pack starts howling, whether to welcome home a pack mate, or to communicate to those in the distance, it is an awesome sound. (No fear, these coyotes do not attack :) ). Located seven miles east of Mena, Arkansas, our farm has been in the family since 1897 and is listed as a Century Farm with the state of Arkansas. It is a working cattle farm on 150 beautiful acres with frontage along the Irons Fork River in the beautiful Ouachita Mountains. Venture off the farm and take advantage of the plethora of things to do in the area; canoeing, boating, ATV trails, swimming, hunting, hiking, state parks, antiquing, and more. The Ouachita National Forest is just a short distance away (half a mile). The Blue; Zipline and Farm is our agritourism attraction which was started as a way to get kids who have an autism spectrum disorder into the great outdoors . A few years ago we started offering sustainable workshops which are open to the public; gardening, building with cob, repurposing pallet wood, etc. We may have one scheduled during your stay with us. Join us on this great adventure. (We're autism friendly, hence the name Blue) And check out our zip line canopy tour while you're here. All campers receive 12% off for the zip lines. We are dog friendly and have seven dogs of our own. We do not allow metal detecting on the property under any circumstances due to it being a historical site. Should you lose an item, such as a ring or necklace, let us know and we will use our equipment to help locate it. Check back later as we will be offering campsites for our Solar Eclipse Festival for April 8, 2024. We are in the direct path of totality.

Absolutely loved it!
The stay was amazing, even though it rained our last morning.. The tent was amazing and provided everything we needed.. Shelley met us upon arrival and was super helpful. She even gave us tips on where to go and what to do, thankfully there was a fair in town while we were there! The bed was super comfy and the view was gorgeous.. it could use a wee bit more privacy from the other guests, but all in all we absolutely loved it and will return most definitely!
