Definitely blaze your own trail with this tent site! We wish we had more time and a high clearance vehicle to explore the farm - but it simply wasn't possible in our camper Prius.

The tent site itself is well marked - though very wild and overgrown. We ended up making a quaint spot for ourselves, though due to how overgrown and muddy it was, it was pretty close to the road. The tent site itself is right off the intersection of the road and a moderately busy highway - so if you don't mind traffic passing by, then this may be for you.

We met Bryan up by the stables, and he was incredibly sweet. He works for the farm, and is making a gorgeous little spot for himself by his van. He gave us directions to find the Volkswagen Graveyard, but unfortunately, it was too wild and required high clearance to reach. Be extremely careful, even on the gravel roads!

The road is nice to walk on - the farm itself is very pretty. We never met Bethany, but Bryan was very nice. There are a couple parks nearby in Chickamauga if you're so inclined as well.

The road to the stables, where Bryan lives. He works for the farm and isn't a host, but is definitely worth a stop if you have the time.A little pickin' in the morning. Tall trees behind this site separate you from the neighbors. A nearby park, about 8 minutes away in Chickamauga.

Great price and great place to stay for a night on the road traveling. Bethany was incredibly kind and hospitable. The site is very primitive, just you, an open grassy field and a campfire ring. I was looking for a bit more privacy so this spot was perfect for that. Did have some night time wildlife visit (not sure what!) but that’s to be expected. Had a lovely stay and would suggest this spot to anyone who is happy roughing it in the woods.

The site is very small and right up against a large road. The site is only accessible if you have a car with 4wd. The ground is uneven, and unfortunately it was also very muddy and wet when we decided to go.

I wasn’t able to actually visit and stay due to last minute difficulties. However, I wanted to rate this as high as possible because the site is gorgeous and on a beautiful farm. I hope I can get the chance to come camp there soon and buy a dozen of those fresh duck eggs!

The area at the back of the property was perfect for group camping. Plenty of space for the tents and Hammock and safely out of the way to insure that none of our belongings were bothered while we left to hike for the day. The owner was very nice and accommodating. If in the area again I would set up camp here.
