Private "Glamping" on Flower Farm!
Great place! Very serene with a wide open sky. Glamping bed very comfortable. It does have a flush toilet and shower. We didn't use the shower but it appears that they may have hooked up hot water to it? It is a short trek from the camping site which requires a flashlight in the middle of the night. But then again, it is camping, and this is far better than some situations I've been in. Was a great location to be close, but not too close, to The Spoon River drive festivities and perfectly situated to explore Emiquon.

We have never done this but it was rainy and humid my husband needed power for his cpap machine so we couldn't stay UT it could have been fun if it wasn't wet and so humid.

Peaceful Retreat
This was a beautiful and peaceful place to escape the city fireworks with my dog. The hosts were friendly and easy to communicate with. We had a great visit.

So good, so cute, so relaxing!
More beautiful than the photos could convey. Dennis was a great host, quick response time. The accommodations are great. We loved having an outdoor shower to rinse off in. The tent is spacious and the mattress is comfortable, we loved the area and this experience in general!

Magical meadow
One of the most magical places we have ever stayed. Tucked off of the road, near a fully plumbed restroom and a small pool, it felt like being in a fairytale. 15/10 would recommend, and we look forward to staying here again.

Magical
This site was breathtakingly beautiful. The energy was peace, love, light. I came for my birthday, my friend and I drove 4 hours from NorthWest subs of chicago and it was entering a new time/space dimension. Slow, serene and completely secluded, the gorgeous sprawling meadow's of wildflowers and the symphony of unharnessed sound from nature allowed for the expansion and calm we were seeking. The night sky was a sea of stars, your own personal private panoramic planetarium while bathing in the healing sound therapy of the forest at night. The accomodations were perfect as well. Undistracting and simple, with loving touches like fresh flowers in your tent, special small comforts like warm shower water and flushing toilet in conveniently located bathroom made way for more time to kick back while still enjoying the rustic camping 🏕 experiences. We drove an hour from the site where we mined for Geode rock. Great excursion! Ill always think of this trip with joy in my heart and beautiful memories of receiving the priceless gift of rest, relaxation and recovery, exactly what i was dreaming of when I booked. Thank you Black Sheep Flower Farm for the great memories, hope to return to do it all over again someday. Blessings for love and abundance to you always.

Comfortable and beautiful getaway
This was our first experience with Hipcamp and we were just thrilled with the result. Dennis was an amazing and welcoming host and we loved the site. I knew that it was glamping (not camping) but was happily surprised with all the little extras Dennis provided. And the location is fabulous - with possibilities for kayaking in a bird sanctuary nearby, hiking in the woods, and other local sites. It was far more than I expected and I wish we had planned to stay longer.

The Black Sheep Flower Farm was wonderful! Dennis was super easy to communicate with and the site was so very nice! A plus for those, like me, who aren't super experienced campers - town is just a short drive away in case you forget anything. ;) Definitely recommend!

We loved it. Even with the rain, we were able to enjoy the place. Tent is great and has all the necessities inside. There is a hammock and a grill outside. The outdoor shower is pretty darn refreshing. Unfortunately, our kitty cat managed to escape from the crate and got lost in the woods. I am still hoping the campers or the host will be able to spot her, i will be definitely back at some point with the hope to get our Almi back ❤️

I loved this site! It is perfect for a quick getaway with your significant other. The trees provide an ideal amount of privacy without taking away from the gorgeous view of the open rolling plains and wetlands. You can feel the love that was clearly put into designing site. Definitely check this one out!!!
