Pitch your tent creek-side near our working year round vegetable farm. The perfect hide away at Little Bent Farm was voted one of the top ten Kentucky Hipcamps to visit in 2022. Our 84 acre farm is bordered on two sides by a beautiful stretch of the West Fork of Drakes Creek in Franklin, Ky. Just a short distance from Nashville, Bowling Green, KY, Mammoth Cave National Park and Franklin's historic downtown.

There are several wooded areas you can lose yourself in. Wildlife is abundant on the farm; deer, wild turkeys, wood ducks, song birds and bald eagles are common, even the beavers make an appearance from time to time. The fireflies put on a nightly summer show and the crickets and frogs will lull you to sleep.

We want our guests to have a pleasant experience while at the farm. Whether it’s stargazing in the meadows, relaxing in the shade of the mature trees, exploring the cattails in a kayak or hiking the trails, you’re sure to enjoy the natural beauty of the farm and we’re here to help make your stay a pleasant one.

The campsites are a short walk from the parking area and are tucked among the trees with views of the creek and plenty of privacy. Campers will find a picnic table, fire pit, a container of potable water and soap at the site along with hand sanitizer and TP in the loo. Firewood, seasonal produce and farm fresh eggs are available to our guests.

Was a really nice place. The walk was a little farther than what I had thought it would be, but that didn't take anything away from the experience. Very peaceful and the hosts were super friendly. Hope to get to stay here again.

The property is gorgeous! Michael was a great host and provided a map and cart to take our things down to the site. The site was beautiful and private and had everything we needed. The out house was adorable and smelled fantastic?? Will definitely be staying here again!

This place was the perfect camping get away, has plenty of land to explore and walk and trees to hammock anywhere of your liking. It’s not to far from the small city of Franklin KY just in case you forget something ,Walmart is 5 minutes away! There is no light pollution and plenty of wild life to enjoy. Deer might stalk you a bit but no harm. I heard coyotes hooting and howling off in the distance which gave it a cool experience ( in my opinion)…
The fishing is great if you can find openings in the woods. You camp right on the water ,have an out house around the corner, so it’s not smelling the camp up haha. I got to see two otters fight two raccoons while fishing on the other bank of the creek. I highly recommend this site! Thanks for the hospitality and awesome location to stay. I’ll definitely be camping here again in the future!

This spot was amazing. Perfect for a group or solo camp. Level site with potable water and towel. The loo is a short walk away. So peaceful. The campsite isn’t a far walk from parking. Can’t wait to stay here again!
