Goatland is PARADISE
Our stay at Jeanne’s farm was better than we could have ever hoped for! She keeps a huge variety of animals including a donkey, cow, sheep, goats, Guinea fowl, peacocks, chicken, and you might get to meet her dog Libby! The farm is lush and the different campsites are very spaced out across her 15 acres. She offers access to an indoor bathroom that even has a shower. Jeanne is such a cool host, and extremely welcoming. She’s also incredibly knowledgeable about her animals. I definitely plan to return and I highly recommend it!

Goatland is AMAZING. You can tell how much they truly care about their animals. Nicest hosts I've ever had :).

Great Place for a Peaceful Visit
Wonderful place! You have the run of the farm but you need to operate with courtesy and respect (for both the owners and the animals). Don't bring kids who will run wild and harass the animals- this is a unique, beautiful place that really allows you access to the farm, so don't take advantage. That being said, come if you're ready to relax and learn more about some animals and interact with them in a lovely setting. The shower and bathroom are a huge plus, and everything is super well kept up.

Would Highly Recommend!
Amazing place! Great hosts. If you love animals and peace and quiet this is the place for you. We had a great stay; the variety of gentle animals and shower both made this rank as a five star place for us. We will be back!

Perfect weekend of camping despite the heat. The views from our site were gorgeous, animals were fun to have hanging around, and location was great for us (close to hiking and breweries). Having a clean bathroom with shower was a definite plus. Read the description - you’ll likely set up camp a ways from your vehicle so consider packing light. From my wife: “I saw a goat be born and it was the greatest most amazing experience in my recent memory. I can’t imagine another camp-on-a-farm adventure even comparing.”

Amazing well maintained farm. Host was amazing, showed us the property and introduced to many animals living there. All of them are super friendly and my 3.5 year son was super excited to pet them.

Staying at Goatland was a fantastic experience! The host, Naimhe is a funny and kind person. Great place to enjoy the beauty of nature and get place to escape the city. My Boyfriend and I truly felt comfortable with the whole experience and hope to go back for another family get-away.

We had a great night at Goal Land! Naimhe was very welcoming and the site is well kept.

This is a great weekend getaway for young couples or families with older (respectful) kids. The hosts were amazing, Naimhe showed us her property when we got there and then let us do our own thing. We stayed in the Goatland 2 enclosure by the creek and it was beautiful but extremely windy. Make sure you read the full description and are prepared to walk a long distance with gates to the car and bathroom. We had to put our tent down during the day when we left and cooking on an open flame was difficult. The goats stay in their own enclosure and are extremely excited to see you, they will jump so be careful. The sheep roam free during the day and are mostly skiddish but Dolly and Clyde were always ready for pets. There are a few cows, Grace the donkey, and some peafowl. You do need to remember you're on a farm where animals eat and poop so bring hiking shoes- flip flops are ok by the tent but no where else. There are a few things to do within 30 minutes and Pancho & Lefty's Outlaw Grill was delicious. Overall a great and relaxing experience.

Little tent on the prairie!
Best of both worlds— a rustic camp site by a pasture brook, tucked into a little hollow under a willow tree PLUS access to a spotless full bathroom with hot water shower. And then the adorable animals— goats, mop-topped cows, chickens and peacocks plus a donkey— all friendly and safely sequestered in their own pastures. Bright star sky and a fire ring for a campfire. No picnic table.
Suggestions: arrive before dark if you want to use my spot as it’s a bit of a walk over a somewhat bumpy pasture— I had my gear in a wheeled duffel which made all the difference. Or a folding wheeled cart could help too. Not a problem if your site is closer to house/vehicle. Also somewhat hard to see Jeanne’s direction landmarks after dark.
Great choice if nearby state parks are filled— good pivot spot for Galena and Monroe.

Great stay at a great farm!
Everything was as stated in the listing! Bathroom and shower were a welcome amenity for our camping trip! We were given a tour and allowed to set up where ever we wanted. Fire wood was provided, along with use of a wheel barrow for hauling it!

Enjoyed my stay! Beautifully quiet and a lovely view. I loved being able to walk around and see animals too!

Animals were awesome.
Our host was so helpful. When we got there she showed us around and gave us some history of farm. She walked us around and let us pick the site we wanted to camp on.
There was a super clean bathroom with a tub and shower, a full size fridge we could use and a sink for dishes with clean water.
This was the first time I had camped on a farm and I loved it. In the morning, I had my coffee with chickens, peacocks, rams and goats. They also had a sweet cat that would come and visit you from time to time.
The location was great. Close to some great breweries, a vegan restaurant and horse back riding. I would definitely return.
Fine if you’re traveling light and don’t mind a more basic site (no fire pit, no table). Lugging my yeti cooler and other camping gear in a wheelbarrow a couple hundred yards through a livestock pen with two gates I had to unchain and re-chain behind me three times to get all my stuff in was a real hassle and left me pretty sweaty. The bathroom and free firewood was nice though.

Great for families!
Fun place to stay, especially for kids and animal lovers. Site was as expected and the hosts were helpful, but left us to do our thing. We have three kids - 8.5, 6, and 3 - and all had a great time meeting the animals and want to come back soon! Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful land and adorable goats!
Staying at Goatland has been one of my favorite private camping experiences to date. Niamhe extremely welcoming and accommodating. The property was GORGEOUS and the bathroom was very clean and well kept.
