Our town dates back to 1893 and our home to 1902. We are on the edge of our small rural town of 85 people who uphold the sense of community this great country was founded on - that to survive we must all look out for and support each other and take care of our planet.  Rated #1 in the “Top 7 Campgrounds Near Sioux Falls”, “Best in South Dakota HipCamp” in BOTH 2018 & 2019 and 2nd place in 2020 and 7th place in the USA for “HipCamp Tent Camping” in 2020!!! Solace Farm Rustic Campground is registered with the State of South Dakota and inspected annually.   Stay with us and experience the prairies of South Dakota in our large spaces with tall prairie grass flowing in the breeze between the campsites, (because camping is NOT parking 10 feet away from another camper in our opinion) and plenty of space for the kids to play and discover the gardens, chickens, goats and the freedom of the outdoors. Our rustic campground is located on the outside western edge of our VERY small and quiet historic town, just 44 minutes south of I-90, 30 minutes from Sioux Falls or 10 minutes west of I-29 and just 8 minutes to Swan Lake for water fun! A short walk from the campground will take you "downtown" to the The Davis Bar or to the General Store for souvenirs, antiques, treats, basic groceries or to pick up more of our homemade jams!  Pets are welcomed here at Solace Farm if they are on a leash while onsite. We will have a small convenience store open onsite this fall so you can enjoy your stay with easy access to needs and treats. At your check in we will meet you with a welcome gift of a jar of our homemade jam and a loaf of fresh bread to give your morning that little touch of farm charm. Our rustic little hobby farm is open for you to pitch your tent or small camper in your choice of spaces and we are open to ALL people. We are however unable to accommodate pull behind campers or RV’s in excess of 26'. Site number #2 is a pull through campsite for a pull behind camper, and sites #5 and #6 are pull though for a SMALL pull behind camper, all sites will accommodate tent camping and your drive directly to your site after check-in. Each camp site has a fire ring, picnic table or vintage chairs for you. Firewood is available to purchase. Group Discounts are available, please message us for more information.   Our rural setting at Solace Farm offers bird watching, walking areas, great places to ride your bike, a nearby river to explore, playground, tree swings, the farm animals, evenings with stargazing, the communal fire pit,  and a fabulous sunsets to enjoy. Some sites are perfect for hammock tents! We ask that each reservation MUST arrive to check in before 10 PM. You can now order additional jam, fresh bread, salsa and farm fresh eggs and firewood when you make your reservation! Trash and recycle cans are available and we ask that you leave no trace when you pack up. Soon our gothic bathhouse will be ready and we are getting ready to have outside movie nights! SO MUCH fun to look forward to! The country is yours to experience and our goats (Abbott and Costello) and chickens enjoy attention. Our old country school merry-go-round is fully restored and the teeter totter made from farm equipment that you are welcome to play on, and a few trees to climb if you aren't worn out yet. (This is a working hobby farm and there are areas that children should not play in. Please supervise your children at all times)  The second Saturday of each month there is a Flea Market in downtown Davis and is a great time to book! The campground includes a 7 foot firepit with a tree swing and there is a grill and picnic tables for our campers to use. We welcome travelers on their way to and from the Sturgis Bike Rally in August as we are located on Highway 18,  a safer alternative for motorcycles to driving on Interstate 90. Depending on the season, there is almost always something to pick, whether it be cherries, apples, mulberries, plums, rhubarb or something from our garden! The camp area is a few minutes from the main house, and feel free ask for input during booking to determine which sites have the most privacy if you'd prefer quiet time. We have been working on our “Glamper” and she is NOT currently available for use. Upgrades happen every year and we LOVE the feedback from our campers UPDATE DUE TO COVID-19: We our campers to practice social distancing, and respect all others. We ask  that all campers clean and disinfect the porta potty touched surfaces before and after use so that may be safely used by others. We ask that all campers respect CDC requirements to include distancing with other campers if they are not comfortable with direct interaction. All pets MUST be on a leash. Your help in supporting these requirements will allow us to stay open and having positive outcomes for all

I was the lone camper on my one night stop-over. I felt very safe and Cinda and her husband were very sweet. I can imagine how nice it is during a more suitable season! Also the bread and jelly were awesome!

Solace Farms was incredible. Cinda was extremely hospitable and greeted us with home made bread and jam. Very unique and cool place. Well separated camp sites with fire pits. Clean porta potties and quiet camping. Cool community fire pit with unique surroundings and even some farm animals. Be sure to have some home made salsa and visit their little general store. Highly recommend Solace Farm!

Cinda was an amazing host! We arrived pretty late and she was all smiles and offered us complimentary jams and home made bread. And her farm is beautiful!!! We had the best time feeding her goats and walking around with our pup. She also provides fire wood for a small fee. Her sister owns the general store in Davis and she sells Cista’s preserved goodies. Make sure to give her a visit too!

Agreeable goats
How many campsites come with fresh bread and jam!? Cinda was absolutely lovely and the place is a real treat. Some friendly goats, a grassy field, and water and toilets not far from the sites. Beats an AirBnb in Sioux Falls any day.

A wonderful stay...plus tree swing!
This was an amazing place to stay, and Cinda was the most gracious and welcoming host. The farm and animals are charming, with a beautiful sunset, lovely nighttime soundscape, and amazing star-filled sky. Cinda met me for check-in with a loaf of freshly home-baked bread and a jar of Solace Farm jam--sometimes this kind of warmth is all a person needs to feel at home. I will definitely stay again, and highly recommend.

Camping on Cinda's property was great. The views were wonderful and the directions and signage at the site were clear. Cinda met me there on arrival for sign in and explained everything about the property, including where to get water, firewood, and were the bathrooms are. She even provides a welcome gift of fresh baked bread and some jam, such a kind touch. I used campsite #1 which is tucked in the corner of some trees and provided a nice bit of shade in the evening. The chickens and goats were also fun to visit.

This place was amazing and Cinda was even more amazing! This was only our 2nd time doing Hipcamp and I am hooked. The Carrot Cake Jam on the fresh bread was to die for. Cinda just gives this upon arrival. We chose site 4 which was in the far back but the sunset was gorgeous. Highly recommend Solace Farm to everyone!!

Peaceful spot with bread&jam!!
Cinda provided such a beautiful, calming, and welcoming environment for us to camp at. She met us at arrival and talked with us about the things we can find on her land such as picking berries from the trees or cucumbers from her garden, told us about her goats and chickens that we were able to feed, and directed us to where our site was. We were able to pitch our tent right underneath a two hundred year old tree and were graced with a beautiful sunset. Perhaps the best part was the homemade bread and jam we were given! When we arrived Cinda said our bread had just been taken out of the oven and was cooling down and then rattled off a list of incredibly flavored, unique, homemade jams for us to chose from. I believe the one we selected was strawberry fields! Once the bread was ready and she picked our jam up from her store she brought it over and we not-so-shamelessly devoured the entire loaf with half the jar of jam in one sitting. The only regret is that we didn’t buy some more before we left! Highly, highly recommend. It was beautiful and if we are ever in the area again, we will be booking with Cinda!

Relaxing Stay at Solace Farm
We enjoyed the short time stayed at Solace Farms. We arrived early evening and Cinda greeted us upon arrival with fresh bread and homemade jam, yummy! We stayed at site 4, which was nice and level for our truck camping expedition and perfect for watching the sunset over the field. We enjoyed visiting with the animal's and the recently hatched chicks while waiting to watch the sunset. This was our first Hipcamp adventure and we'd love to stay again. Thanks Cinda!

Lovely place with equally lovely people! The farm is peaceful and well-maintained. We stayed in site 1 which offered plenty of privacy. We ate Cinda’s homemade bread and jam for breakfast. Delicious! If we are ever in the area again we will surely stay again :)

We were only at Solace Farm for a quick overnight on a road trip and it was perfect for us! Cinda was delightful and her bread and jam welcome gifts were delicious. The property was clean, cute, and perfect for camping. We would absolutely stay at Solace again.

Oozing country charm!
Cinda’s slice of paradise was a true gem. She offers several amply sized sites, some with shade and some without. I had site 1, which was covered by a large shade tree, immediately next to a fruited mulberry tree. Yum! Cinda runs a local country shop that stocks essentials (ice, beer, wine, etc.) but also has a huge variety of jams and pickled veggies that Cinda cans…all from her own veg garden. Really worth the short drive from I-90.

Prairie Camping
There were three in my group. Cinda greeted us at check-in with fresh bread and a choice of jam. We snacked on that while we set up our tents. The ground was flat and very good for our tents. The campground was quiet and very clean. It was a fun to stay here. There are no showers but Cinda made a hose available.

This is a one-of-a-kind campground! It’s located on a beautiful property and greeted by Cinda with a fresh loaf of homemade bread and a jar of jam! Her property has plenty of shade, a fabulous garden, a variety of chickens, and two goats. At night we laid on the merry-go-round and watched the stars above us. This place is magical! I HIGHLY recommend camping here!

This was our first Hipcamp experience and it was a delight. The host was welcoming, told us everything we needed to know, and the bread and jam were fabulous. The site was well maintained and the facilities were clean. We loved the goats and chickens and had fun playing on the merry-go-round and teeter totter. We hope to stay again one day!

Beautiful, comfy, fun camping spot!
Cinda was a lovely, welcoming host who showed us around her beautiful farm and gifted us fresh bread and homemade jam. The goats and chickens were so fun for us city people to hang out with, and there are loads of "toys" (see-saw, merrigoround) on the property. Beautiful place
