This was a beautiful farm with a friendly host. We walked down to the river and found geodes and fossils. The area is very humid and wet so we had some trouble keeping the fire going and keeping things dry but this would be the case anywhere in the area.

Josh and his wife were wonderful! Lovely people, great hosts. They’re property is gorgeous and the camp spots are private and with plenty of trees for shade and beauty. They have walking trails to enjoy yourself on and their property backs up to a serene creek full of geodes to collect and enjoy the quiet. My friends and I had the most delightful trip. Bring your hiking boots you’ll want to explore. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an easy camping getaway. Bloomington and Nashville Indiana are just up the road on either side so plenty to do in town for a day trip. All in all A+ experience.

Your going to pull up to a beautiful farm with a road side stand. They had huge pumpkins and gourds of all different shapes and colors. Parking was easy and plenty. They have 3 beautiful dogs that love to tell everyone that your there. No worries though they are fenced in, even though i think they would just lick you to death. The campsite was a bit of a walk, but Josh had the gator ready and our all terrain cart came in handy. The camp site is just the right size for any small group. The grill, chairs, and table we very handy and the area around is covered with moss, loved taking my shoes off. The creek was not far and our dogs loved it. It was crisp but felt amazing to get in after sweating putting up camp. Most of it was pretty shallow but we did find a deep spot to swim in, just dont forget water shoes with thick soles for the rocks. West gate to Brown County State park was 15 minute drive so we'll definitely be back in the fall for the leaf color change.

Josh is a fantastic host and super nice. Met us upon arrival and drove our stuff down to the tent (paid the extra $10 to have it set up for us...absolutely worth it!) Great camping area, but close to a main road, so a fair amount of traffic noise. The creek along the property is delightful, lots of good fossil and geod hunting! Had fun checking out all the chickens, peacocks, goats, ducks etc on the farm...just a really nice, unique location. Highly recommend for any outdoor lovers looking for a unique spot!

What a lovely family on such a nice little farm. Was visiting Bloomington to meet with my professor and also to get some mountain biking in. The location was perfect to reach both. A great alternative to way overpriced Air BnB's in the area.

Unfortunately my mobile phone's service was spotty as I was trying to access PayPal to pay for some produce - so bring a little cash for some great looking fresh produce.

Single female traveling alone, I felt very safe and comfortable there.

Nice place to get away! It's close to town but is still real camping. There is fresh produce and eggs available. The smore kit was an awesome add on! Lots of space and set up. There is a outhouse and a camp shower so be ready!

We enjoyed our stay. Joshua and his family were very helpful. We had privacy and nice camping amenities. We loved watching the animals and they had fresh vegetables and eggs. Would stay again.

What a great campsite! It has everything you need, wonderful touches (grill, chairs, washing water), and amazing grounds! The hikes were close and very fun to explore and Josh was over the top helpful. I would love to come back again! The reviews and write ups are all incredibly accurate. You feel secluded but can hear a little road noise and some working dogs at night, but they can’t take away from the fields full of fireflies or flowers. Excellent all around!
