Choose to stay in one of our private tent sites, with only views of nature surrounding you. The listed sites here are accessible by car, but if remote/hike in is more your style, we have those, too - just ask! Or try out our tree house camp experience: a platform built into the trees with provided 8 person tent secured to the base (contact us to reserve/book the tree house. Rental is $45/night). We also have a large group site. Firewood is provided on site - please do not bring in your own. We have marked trails, or forge your our path! The campgrounds are a short jaunt from our vineyard. At the vineyard is our event center with B & B lodging. Campers are welcome to use the modern facilities at the event center. Kaibos are located at the primitive tent campground. Guests are welcome to enjoy the pond (kayaks provided, catch & release fishing) and play area. There are acres of woodlands to explore with ample opportunity for wildlife watching. We are a short drive to a boat launch river access, or walk to the river from our place! Firewood and non potable water is provided for campers.

Very private. Lots of space at the campsite. Washroom with shower is a short drive away. Welcoming host.

My kids and I had a wonderful camping week. The kids loved camping in the treehouse, running around the open land and found a new love for fishing. We will be back! Host was kind and friendly.

Felt a lot like camping in Maine. Grass trees and all all alone. It was different.

Jason and Nicole have a beautiful piece of land that makes for excellent camping. We had a party of 7 and the campsite we stayed at could fit us all and then some. They have incredible accomodations and weren't shy about loaning or helping us find equipment that we had forgotten.

Nicole and Jason thoughtful, responsive and accommodating. The property is amazing and the privacy and seclusion of the camp site was great. We caught fish, visited the animals, threw a few discs and then enjoyed the privacy of a beautiful spot with a stocked wood pile! Jason and Nicole will go above and beyond to ensure that your stay is relaxing. Our family highly recommends this hipcamp stay!

An incredible weekend getaway! Nicole and Jason were amazing hosts and made sure we had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend! The treehouse tent is the perfect retreat in the woods, and no setup or tear down needed! The nearby forest has great hiking trails. The frolfing course was a blast. We enjoyed meeting all the friendly farm animals too! Perfect weekend away!

The treehouse tent is the perfect low maintenance hideaway.Sweet farm friends love squash!Friendly farm animals!View of the forest from the treehouse deck.
