The magical woods awaits you just behind our show horse farm. Tranquil. Peaceful. Beautiful. A world away is within reach.

Just 20 miles from Starved Rock

This is the sister site to Meadows Edge and has a more communal feel. Often rented with the adjacent Meadows Edge to provide more space for larger groups.

On a clear night the moon will light your way to this  site deep in our magical wood. Download the star gazer app of your choice because on a clear night the stars are BRIGHT! 

This site provides level ground to pitch your tent or hang your hammocks. Great for a small group with on site hiking and nearby activities. The Owls and tree frogs will sing you to sleep. Across from Site 1 Meadows edge, these two sites can be combined for larger groups when rented together.

Campfire bowl, 2 Adirondack chairs with a small  spool picnic table includes dry firewood to start your stay.(additional firewood just $5 per bundle)

Fresh eggs available for $3 per dozen raised free range on our farm.

Friendly pets welcome on leash

Ask us for recommendations of other local parks and attractions in addition to Starved Rock, there are so many beautiful places to visit without the crowds. We recommend the All Trails App to explore all our area has to offer.

Golden Pond is treated weekly for mosquitos. And your site has been sprayed with the same spray they use at Disney World to keep the insects at a hopeful minimum.

We ask that you recycle glass, cans, cardboard, etc bins are provided.

Moon over meadow was a wonderful place to stay! Heidi was so welcoming- her passion for her land and horses was contagious. Although the site is near the horses, there was no manure smell or disruption from the stables at the site. The site really is private, especially since no one else was staying at the site across the way. We were well taken care of and felt comfortable asking for anything we needed. There were some sounds at night like a train, but most were drowned out by the crickets/cicada choir and overall we had a restful night and rejuvenating stay! And the eggs are amazing! Good vibes all around.

My first time using HipCamp was awesome! Heidi was great, very accommodating and quick to answer any questions I had. I plan to return to this camping spot in the fall and would highly recommend it to others as well.

We really enjoyed our stay at Moon over Meadow! It's a quaint and beautiful property with plenty of opportunity to view the horses up close. The campgrounds are in the back of the property and they are very well kept and provide a lot of privacy and seclusion. A couple of great state parks to be visited nearby. Heidi is a helpful host who responds quickly to any question that you may have. If you are a person that wants your host to be there to welcome you, make sure you set that up with Heidi ahead of time. We visited on a holiday weekend when she was busy with a horse show. But, we didn't mind that she wasn't there and she was very responsive through text message.

Heidi, thank you much, you and your property are awesome. I had a nourishing rest in your woods. Good people, good land, air, water - what else could I ask for from HipCamp? Nothing. Thank you again Heidi đź’š
