    Please read the complete description so you know what to expect and have the best experience with your stay at Hopping Fox Farm. Your camping area is located in the picturesque Foothills of Litchfield county among the private homes of the rich and famous. The immediate site is situated on a gently sloping meadow with areas that are nearly level. There are southeast facing views of some of the most beautiful terrain in the U.S. This is the destination spot for fall foliage in Ct. Also, most mornings there is some type of wildlife wondering through the fields.

     The closest attraction to the property is Lime Rock auto racing track and its less than .25 miles away. You can access the track directly via a field, so any race fans staying here can drive a golf cart to and from the events. Golf cart rental is available for major race events.  Important:  Please understand that there is an automotive race track right next door, so there will be some noise from Mon to Sat. All racing is finished be 6:00 pm sometimes sooner. There is NO RACING on Sundays so its peaceful, however there still may some traffic. Each event varies in noise level ranging from barely noticeable to pretty loud.  There are 3-4 major race event that typically take place on Memorial day, 4th of July and Labor day, but not limited to those days. These events are pretty loud and there is a lot of traffic.  Please check the race schedule at limerock.com calendar. Hipcamp won't let me hotlink.  If you have any concerns please message me before booking. 

    If your looking for adventure, you have found your destination. There is access to private dirt bike, mountain bike and hiking trails, GPS tracking app strongly recommended and Please ask first before hiking so advise about wildlife can be given. The trails connect to the Appalachian trail that has a view made for paintings. Also locally, there is canoeing/kayaking, swimming, power boating, boat rental, E=bike rental, fly fishing, down hill and cross country skiing. 

    More on our dirt bike trails: This is a GUIDED tour, Fees apply, using your own bike. You must have proper a helmet and hard MX style riding boots. The trails range for open field to hard enduro style hell. The more safety gear and skills you have, the more technical the ride can be.

    The local dining cuisine is some of the best in the county. In addition, there Mexican, Chinese, and many pizza options, one even offers delivery in this rural area. There are also many hidden local farm stands selling fresh vegetables and meat. If your are in need of supplies It's only a 5 min trip into town for hardware/lumber, laundry, and grocery stores.

Absolutely beautiful area! Our host Andy was great!
Awakening to the amazing sunrise over the meadow was wonderful!
The nearby track was not obtrusive noise at all.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Thank you Andy!

Andy has beautiful land and views of the rolling Connecticut hills. He provided helpful suggestions for food, hiking, and had everything laid out for our arrival, which was fairly late. With the close proximity to Lime Rock, if you're a race fan, driver, or team, it would be a perfect spot to post up for the next race weekend. If not a race fan, come on an off week, or after the racing ends on Saturday night or during the week, to enjoy a pristinely quiet and green landscape.

If you are going to the track next door, this is a great location. Andy was friendly and helped point me in the right direction for where to find level ground. It rained all night but the morning was clear and I was able to get to the track. Beautiful location, highly recommended.
