Pitch your tent near the creek in our forest or hilltop with a view of surrounding farms or in a pasture where you will wake with the morning sun. We have various locations perfect for setting up your space for the night. We are a small diverse vegetable, herb and fruit farm just getting started. We also have a small flock of egg laying hens that roams the property along with three friendly barn cats and two feral cats that will keep a distance. There are countless species of birds that can be seen around the farm as well as colorful butterflies, moths and dragon flies regularly flying about. Campers have access to a rustic bathroom(no hot water unless you boil it) and a partial kitchen as well as a charcoal grill, community fire pit and a picnic table. If you would like to cook onsite we have minimal amount of cookware available to use and you can buy from the farm whatever seasonal produce and/or eggs you might need. Our farm is down the road from wineries, breweries, a tea room and various other Frederick county attractions. There are numerous historic sites within a short drive such as Harpers Ferry and Civil War battlefields, including Gettysburg and Antietam. We are a 15 minute drive to historic downtown Frederick, 10 minutes from the center of historic New Market while being about an hour from downtown D.C. and 45 minutes to Baltimore. Our central location is great for site seeing around the area during the day, then you can spend the evenings relaxing around the farm. *** After a tornado that hit the farm in May, we currently only have one site available on the hilltop(picture of the hammock) and the sites in the forest are closed until we can clear them of the fallen trees. Also, there is some space to set up near the farm buildings if that is preferred. The hilltop has some flat areas, but there is also a good slope depending on where you set up. This is next to a newly planted orchard, so there is also the option of some flat areas around the little fruit trees. Plenty of space for larger groups as well, but there might not be enough flat space for more than 2 or 3 tents unless setting up around the little trees in the new orchard. Some cars are able to drive up the hill, but be prepared to walk up from the parking space near the barns which takes 3-5 minutes.

Beautiful farm camping!
Catherine was a welcoming, kind, and flexible host who answered all of my many questions as a first-time Hipcamper! We loved the secluded spot that was about a 7 minute walk from our car. Catherine let us borrow a cart to help transport our belongings, which was a must-have over the hilly meadow. We loved that our site was secluded, had its own fire pit, and was only a 10-15 minute drive to downtown Frederick. The only downside were the burrs that got caught in my dog's velcro-like fur when he walked through the mowed meadow path. All in all, we had a great stay and would definitely recommend!
Peaceful hilltop site w sunset view
Cathrine was a welcoming and helpful host, giving me choices of several spots to set up camp. I pitched my tent on the hill up behind the barn/trailer area, with a great view of the surrounding countryside and sunset. The spot included shade trees, a hammock, a fire pit and log benches, and was a short walk to the trailer for kitchen and bath use. I’m glad I opted to get eggs and veggies from the farm, enjoyed having them to cook during my stay (and meet the chickens who produced them!). Lots of other small details that made the stay wonderful, like fresh flowers in the trailer kitchen and piles of firewood not far from the campsite. Will definitely be back!
Great walking trails
Ended up leaving before nightfall because of big thunderstorms (with 3 toddlers) but we still got some walking in and hammock time at the top of the hill. Great mowed paths among wildflowers. Chickens and guinea fowl were a HUGE hit with my kids. Great communication with Catherine leading up to our visit. Will absolutely try to come back again.
2nd time is even better.
2nd time around. Was even better than first.
A bad rainstorm was in the forecast for the evening, but we still made it after the rain to set up. The building in the property was offered if we needed shelter during any further bad weather. Turned out to be a gorgeous day the next day and Katherine and her family are awesome.
Nice, just not secluded
Super nice host, it's just... not my cup of tea for a secluded site. The front site was the only one open due to a felled tree, but it was up a pretty steep hill and from there I was greeted by the neighbors. They waved to me up the hill while they were in their pool from across the street, but I would just prefer an open or wooded view instead of more people and noise. Just my personal preference to be very secluded. Oh, and cool chickens, though.
Brought back memories of farm life.
Beautiful camp area. The hosts are very friendly and warm. Very spacious and so much to see. Great view of the hillside and campfire near hammock has an awesome view at sunset and moon rise. We got lucky and camped when a strawberry moon was rising in sky.
Love the roosters and chickens roaming around.
Will definitely come back and bring more people or see a different area.
Bathroom is a plus. Showers and toilet available.
Eaters Acres is a lovely farm! The hilltop campsite was peaceful and had great views and perfect hammock trees, although it was a creative challenge to find spots level enough for two 2-person tents. We also loved the delicious farm-fresh eggs produced by our new buddies, the friendly chickens. And it was great to have bathrooms and running water!
The only problem was that the wood that the hosts provided was wet from rain in previous days, and it hadn't been split for use as firewood. So despite using a robust fire-starter, we never got a successful campfire. In the future, I'd recommend that the hosts split the wood and cover their wood piles to keep it all dry.
