Wonderful fall overnight. We’re a family of four with a 6 and 2 year old. The kids loved the animals, zip line, trampoline, and ninja course. Adults loved the peace and quiet and stargazing. We enjoyed site 3 and could hear the creek at night. Horse rides in the morning. Julie was great with our son who had never rode a horse before. We’d come back again!

Serenity Fields was a great spot for the whole family.

The kids rode horses, jumped on the trampoline, used the zip line, picked fresh fruit and veggies, grabbed fresh chicken eggs for breakfast, held bunnies and roamed the property.

Julie was responsive and a great host. We will definitely come back!

My kids are animal lovers so this spot was super fun including horseback riding! We enjoyed the zip line and ropes course. A beautiful night of star gazing too!

Serenity Fields Farm is a lovely property, very peaceful with the addition of two playful dogs and a menangerie of farm critters.
After spending more than a year in the desert of New Mexico during the pandemic, the lushness and flowing rivers, streams and lakes was very heartening. Thanks for having us!

We enjoyed our stay!

This was our second trip to stay with Julie and her menagerie. Although the weather was hot and humid, we enjoyed our last weekend prior to school starting. The turkeys visited the site, and the kittens spent their entire time visiting with us. As before, a great site with shade aplenty, flush toilet, and running water. Can’t ask for more!

Julie's farm is amazing! We could have stayed for several days. Our girls picked fruits and vegetables, played with all the farm animals, splashed in the creek, and bounced on the trampoline. What a peaceful, joyful place!

This was an awesome place to camp. Julie was a great host. She was very welcoming and made all of us feel very much at home. She even was kind enough to take a bunch of us on horse rides even though it was really hot outside. There is little adventure course set up, including a zip line which the kids were super excited about and never wanted to leave. There are also a lot of friendly animals and all of us loved playing with the super cute and friendly kittens. This is wonderful place for families and is not too far from Decatur and Lake Shelbyville is only 30 minutes away. Highly recommended!

This was our second stay at Serenity Field Farms. We had a big group spread across 2 bookings this time, and everything was great! Julie let us know there were kiddo day campers, and we had a fun time interacting with the campers and animals. Having access to a bathroom was great. We had a great time and will be returning again!
