Pitch your tent alongside a winding creek and enjoy the sounds of farm animals (roosters, cattle, donkeys, pig, horses, etc.) and wildlife (coyotes, owls, and more). This naturally rugged land provides privacy, wild black berries (in season), sun and shade, fresh eggs from our own chickens, and a refreshing escape from city lights and noise. You can choose from a variety of settings for your camper or tent, including near the pond (but happens to be out in the wide open and close to a private lane), alongside the creek (very woodsy, low and private), or near the animals (barn, chicken coop, pig pen). There are boarders that come and go using mostly the front pasture, but aside from that or if you choose the back pasture it is very quiet and private.

Places to see near Roper’s Creek Farms
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
If you want to get away and just relax among the animals, this is your place. Just beginning vanlife but still awaiting house sale, we needed to get away from the driveway but not go to far and Gina's farm exceeded our expectations.
This was our first HipCamp reservation and I must say it was simple and easy. The farm is beautiful and the host was so friendly and accommodating. She gave us our pick if locations to park our 19' rig then we got to enjoy the company of horses, a pig, chickens, natural wildlife and a visit from her sweet dog Reese. We were lucky and she gave us some farm fresh eggs and we enjoyed them so much we will probably never have eggs again the same. Nothing says eat local like 20 feet away.
If you go, bring some eats in and settle in. There really isn't too much close, but why would you want it...when you come to stay at the farm you want to stay at the farm. She has a designated fire area or you can use your camp stove.
Host Gina is there twice a day for animal feedings and is super friendly.
