Sparkroot Farm is absolutely lovely. We enjoyed escaping from busy Chapel Hill to the quite, calm, comfortable country. The kitchen is very convenient, and all of the folks that I ran into were sweet and kind. Our campsite was not as private as I was expecting. This didn’t prove to be a problem, but it’s worth mentioning to let others know. 10/10 would recommend for good vibes at a good price!

Well I had car trouble and didn’t make it there. What a disappointment. Yet, they very graciously returned my money. That made a bad situation less upsetting.

This is an excellent site! Friendly host, nice amenities, and interesting surrounding area. Don't make my mistake and only stay one night. Book several days and give yourself time to explore.

We had a fantastic time here! We stayed in a bell tent set up by Alisa and it was totally idyllic— comfy mattress, lovely lighting, and hot dog skewers included. The goats were very charming. The oak log fire wood also burned really nicely! It was just a super pleasant and easy and lovely trip :-)

Dang! What a fantastic space.
Sparkroot was welcoming and kind, and full of delightful surprises. The goats were sweet as can be, the campsite was well kept and spacious, amenities abound, and the Sparkroot folks were a treat.
We went hiking on the New Hope Overlook Trail at Jordan Lake - it was a wonderful hike with gorgeous views and only about 10 minutes from Sparkroot.

Highly recommend to anyone looking to get away for a good tromp in the woods and a refreshing swim!

Alisa was super responsive from the moment we arrived. The site was clean and charming. The staff onsite were friendly; they showed us around the garden and greenhouse. We also learned about the goats and milking process, which was fun. I would definitely stay again and recommend to others longing to reconnect with nature.
