Our location is also home to our fantasy destination, The Fun Farm. Not only is the scenery replete with natural beauty - the pond, the fields, the sledding hill, the nature trail through the forest - but also a setting to engage the imagination! 

 Additional services may be arranged on-site. For example, who would you like to have breakfast with? A superhero? A princess? Or perhaps a souvenir caricature of you and your group is in order to commemorate the experience? Maybe an experiential art, dance, drama or music lesson? Guided tours of the grounds can also be arranged to learn more about the history of the farm and it's originality.

If you're interested in a "day trip" or even a limited event, we have the facilities to accommodate your birthday or holiday, engage in art Classes, raise funds for your good cause or enjoy "something different" for this year's corporate party. We're also open to your ideas for a custom school, festival or carnival event. We can accommodate groups from 1 to 400 (maybe more, if we send a few enchanted creatures on vacation!)

MORE NOTES ABOUT THE CAMPSITE: We're flexible with wherever you would like to pitch your tent, but the spots we recommend the most are next to our cabin (where the lighting is best and the ground is flattest.) Parking is most easily found next to these sites as well (and the lighting is also excellent.)  Also, in the near vicinity, a shared firepit is readily available and can accommodate at least 12 people.

Check out the additional options (like firewood bundles) below and let us know how we can help you make great memories!

My Girl Scout troop had an amazing stay! Troy was an awesome host. He took every opportunity to educate the girls about the land they were on and hosted an acting workshop for them. The girls soaked up the magical environment and we can’t wait to go back!!

Response from Troy, the Host, on October 7th, 2021

Thank you for your kind words, Nicole! The troop was a joy to host. The girls' interest in the land, their enthusiasm for the arts, and their responsible stewardship of their surroundings were inspiring. We'd love to host again!

The Fun Farm was true to its name! The place is beautiful, and my six year old was so excited to see the amazing pieces on the property and to meet the animals. Troy was so helpful and kind. Highly recommended.

We arrived to camp late one evening while driving halfway across the country after a family gathering. Troy quickly responded and was communicative and helpful. We didn't factor in the time change so were actually an hour later than planned but he still met us out in the field to help us get settled. We would suggest tent camping in the field over staying in the cabin, which was a little stuffy and had a concrete floor.

We didn't have time to check out all of the amenities but it looks like an interesting place and a unique stay!

Response from Troy, the Host, on June 21st, 2021

It was a pleasure hosting Elly and her family - no matter when they showed up :) A quick clarification: The cabin is not an option for rental on our property. We agree with the pure experience of camping in a tent.

What an amazing and interesting property! We had a very memorable time. Troy was an excellent host too. Tough to swim in the pond, but it is beautiful. The animals and creative art everywhere made it a great place for kids of all ages! Super rare and cool spot just outside the city. Highly recommend!

What a lovely and extraordinary place. Troy and his family have created a wonderland of artistic installations. Lots of fantastical structures! The pond with wildlife is so peaceful and the property is full of natural beauty.. Troy is so friendly and accommodating. My arrival time kept changing and he just happily went with the flow. For people who are inspired by art, this is a great camping spot!

This is a great place to camp, especially for families. So many fun things to see, and Troy was very hospitable. Definitely checkout the cool buildings, including the dinosaur building, big boot, pirate ship and more. My whole family had a great time. Definitely will camp here again in the future!
