Peaceful farm full of cute critters

Rhinda was such a welcoming and accommodating host. Her land is in a very peaceful area, and she has worked hard to create a nice spot for Hipcampers. We were in our travel trailer and able to park and set up electric quickly. The kids enjoyed petting all of Rhonda’s animals, and she was so sweet to share her knowledge and time showing them the ropes. She even let them “help” her with some farm work, and they loved that! She clearly has a heart for the critters and works very hard taking care of them. We also enjoyed seeing the stars at night and swinging in the morning breeze under the shade of the trees. Thanks Rhinda!

I stayed here over 4th of July weekend by myself and enjoyed every minute! Rhinda was very accommodating and welcoming. The animals made my stay awesome (I almost took a cat home with me). I went to the beach that was 5 mins away and perfect for a hot day. I will definitely return.

I loved this place! I had a wonderful time here with the animals, especially the friendly cats, and Rhinda was wonderful. It feels like the middle of nowhere but within 10 minutes to town and 5 minutes to the beach. I camped here for 3 nights by myself and was not bored for one minute. I would definitely come back again.

A fast favorite! This is a hidden gem in downstate illinois. Hostess Rhinda is incredibly welcoming + knowledgeable; her animal farm warms the soul and offers picture perfect sunsets. We picked cherries and witnessed a newborn peacock chick. Sound magical? It is! I will return, no doubt and i can not wait.

We had a wonderful one-night stay here at Rhina's farm. We were warmly greeted, and then before bed I was able to take a nice hot shower in the outdoor shower under the stars, which was so cool. In the morning she took us on a tour of the farm, and our three young boys loved it. So many beautiful animals, including some exotic ones I didn't expect. Many of the animals are able to roam freely, including chickens, baby goats, cats, and a brood of adult and baby ducks that were so cute. You'll hear a little bit of the animals at night, but that's the fun of staying on a farm. The property is fairly secluded, surrounded some beautiful farmland. Even though it was a quick stay, it was a fun experience we're always going to remember.

Rhinda was so nice and helpful. We really enjoyed the peacefulness of the location and the trees. The animals were a bonus. Definitely would stay there when we visit again in the area.
