This rural property of almost 20 acres hosts a not for profit children’s physical therapy program that utilizes horses as part of individual treatment plans. You may see and hear horses and ponies, children, volunteers, dogs, barn cats and chickens, distant cattle, frogs, toads, crickets, or coyotes. There are country roads for walking and biking, a hayfield and small nature trail for walking and biking, seasonal vegetable and flower cutting gardens. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets are reason enough to visit.

I enjoyed my farm camping experience. Great hosts and the site is convenient to the the interstate and just west of Indianapolis. My small camper was provided power via extension cord and water was a few steps from my site. Would recommend and would definitely stay again.

We had a great time at the site. It was spacious and beautiful. My wife loved being able to see the horses and walk on the different trails. The firepit was set up for us and we had ample privacy as we watched the stars each night. The only problem we had was the taste of the water, but everythinf else was perfect.

PS we visited Danville ans Shades State Park during our stay and they were wonderful.

Hi Robert. I just now saw this review. Point well taken on the water. Even if potable, it is still well water. Way must have failed to point out the bottles of water in the refrigerator. We will work harder to address this in the future!
