We have 6 spots to pitch a tent, but we're pretty flexible so if you see another area, please ask!. Site 10 is most secluded. The others are around our grassy barnyard area where you're able toenjoy all of our different animals!. All sites are 2-5 mins from the main house. You will be staying at our horse farm. We have many chickens, 2 bunnies, potbelly pigs, feeder pigs (depending on the time of year), and our 3 house dogs. We offer overnight equine amenities as well. 

You can enjoy a small fire (weather dependent) or listen to the crickets and frogs under the starry night. Actually, you can do it all. We offer rides on the horses as well, (extra charges). You can even book a trip to the state park to ride the horse trails, which is only 15 minutes away. There is a great fishing lake 1 mile from the farm, so bring your poles & kayaks. There is a Dollar General, 2 gas stations, and a liquor store in our tiny little town if you forget anything.

Our kiddos loved staying with Miss Anette’s animals. All they have talked about has been the horses and pigs. Overall it was a silly thought on my part to think my husband and I would get any sleep when our kids were so excited to see the animals.

I can't say enough good about Anette and her farm. She was the absolute best. She showed the kids the animals, and brought out a pony for them to ride. The kids had an absolute ball on the farm. They had more fun here than in the previous three days of our trip combined.

We chose to stay in the areas behind the horse stables so we could be near the bathrooms and water. Consequently we weren't in the most private place available on the farm. But we had a very authentic farm stay and we'd do it again next time we passed through Indiana.

Thank you Anette!

Anette helped my kids fulfill their dream of riding horses. If your kids are into animals this is a great place to bring them, from dogs to pigs to horses to chickens...really lovely communal fire pit (free firewood and they have great garbage bins also!) and picnic table, where we met some awesome other campers also & shared food. Just pitch your tent pretty much wherever you want on the farm. Note the water is well water with a high iron content so portable and drinkable, but for city slickers the taste won’t be what you’re used to so you may opt to get some bottled or jug water at the gas station.

We (myself, my wife, my 11-month-old) had a wonderful time camping on the grounds of this charming, welcoming stables. Our hosts settled us and encouraged us to feel completely at home. There were beautiful horses and grunting pigs who amazed and awed our baby. Our campsite was near the entrance to a trail through fields and woods for horseback riding and walking. We were delighted to receive fresh eggs from their chickens! Anette, Bob and family made us feel so welcome, and also gave us space to enjoy the animals and nature. The landscape was amazing. We really enjoyed our time just off the horse’s trail!

We stayed in camp site #2, which had a fire pit, picnic table, and a garbage bin nearby—very convenient! We were also able to pull the car up near our spot to make loading and unloading easier.

It was fun to see the pigs, chickens, and ducks, which were near our camp. If you’re a light sleeper like me, I’d recommend bringing ear plugs since sometimes the animals made some noise throughout the night.

It was also convenient to have an indoor, clean bathroom, which is very luxurious compared to some other campsite amenities I’ve experienced.

It was a fun and unique camping experience. It was also about eight or ten miles away from South Bend, so it was just isolated enough but not completely out in the middle of nowhere.
