Josh was a kind and available host. His working farm is super cool, and the land is beautiful. It was gorgeous to wander around on the public land and see Indiana fall in all its glory. The firewood was dry and helpful.

I wish that there would have been more mention of how close the campsite was to a busy and loud road, in noise and in sightline, and I wish that there would've been a bit more clear communication about what was meant by outhouse. I was picturing a dug pit, but instead there was a trash can with a trash bag inside. The tent we rented had holes in it and we left midway through the evening because it was raining and our space had flooded.

Josh was a great host.

Second time going here this year. Not only is this perfectly position between Bloomington and Nashville. Everything else about this place is great. The host are extremely friendly. The farm is so cute and quaint. Even though the farm dogs bark it made me feel more comfortable. Like I was getting an extra layer of protection.

Host Josh was very responsive and helpful during our stay! He greeted us at the time of arrival and took our belongings to the camp site. This was fun to see chickens and ducks running around the property. Hearing the rooster in the morning when we woke up was a pleasant surprise. The layout of the campsite was perfect, we bought some eggs and they were so good with deep yellow/orange color that you can’t find at your grocery store. You got to buy them on your visit as they go fast.

Stobo Farm campsite is a rustic, authentic camping experience located on site of a whimsical farm. Hosts are friendly and offered to transport our belongings to the site as it is a walk-in. Trails lead back to a creek which offers a setting I would compare to a small slice of heaven. It offered hours of enjoyment for my boys wading, catching crayfish, and looking for fossils and geodes. Thank you for a great time!

This was a beautiful farm with a friendly host. We walked down to the river and found geodes and fossils. The area is very humid and wet so we had some trouble keeping the fire going and keeping things dry but this would be the case anywhere in the area.

Josh and his wife were wonderful! Lovely people, great hosts. They’re property is gorgeous and the camp spots are private and with plenty of trees for shade and beauty. They have walking trails to enjoy yourself on and their property backs up to a serene creek full of geodes to collect and enjoy the quiet. My friends and I had the most delightful trip. Bring your hiking boots you’ll want to explore. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an easy camping getaway. Bloomington and Nashville Indiana are just up the road on either side so plenty to do in town for a day trip. All in all A+ experience.

Your going to pull up to a beautiful farm with a road side stand. They had huge pumpkins and gourds of all different shapes and colors. Parking was easy and plenty. They have 3 beautiful dogs that love to tell everyone that your there. No worries though they are fenced in, even though i think they would just lick you to death. The campsite was a bit of a walk, but Josh had the gator ready and our all terrain cart came in handy. The camp site is just the right size for any small group. The grill, chairs, and table we very handy and the area around is covered with moss, loved taking my shoes off. The creek was not far and our dogs loved it. It was crisp but felt amazing to get in after sweating putting up camp. Most of it was pretty shallow but we did find a deep spot to swim in, just dont forget water shoes with thick soles for the rocks. West gate to Brown County State park was 15 minute drive so we'll definitely be back in the fall for the leaf color change.

Josh is a fantastic host and super nice. Met us upon arrival and drove our stuff down to the tent (paid the extra $10 to have it set up for us...absolutely worth it!) Great camping area, but close to a main road, so a fair amount of traffic noise. The creek along the property is delightful, lots of good fossil and geod hunting! Had fun checking out all the chickens, peacocks, goats, ducks etc on the farm...just a really nice, unique location. Highly recommend for any outdoor lovers looking for a unique spot!
