We are a registered 501 (c)(3) non profit animal rescue/sanctuary! On our 5 acres, we currently house horses, mini donkeys, a mule, goats, sheep, pot bellied pigs, chickens, ducks, a turkey and a huge African Tortoise. Pitch a tent on our 5-acre property and spend some quality time with our menagerie of rescued animals. We are within a few miles of many hiking trails, as well as horse riding trails. If you prefer to stay in a camper rather than pitching a tent please look at our camper for rent listing. Guests love staying here "Oh my goodness!!! What a wonderful experience from the time we stepped out of the car to when we left. The place is kept immaculate. They feed these beautiful creatures the best food, they all have names, and are loved. ❤️ Camping was fun for the (4) of us, myself, 60 yrs. my son, his girlfriend and their 2 1/2 yr. old son. We enjoyed roaming the campus spending as much time as we could with the animals. The owners are there for your questions, (right away), and they leave you alone to enjoy your time. I would recommend this camp to anyone who loves animals and camping."

Glamping in our trailer
We absolutely loved our glamping experience at Ilana's 2 The Rescue Animal Sanctuary! The RV was very big and perfectly accommodated our family of 5. The kids had an amazing time feeding the animals dinner, and getting to pet and walk with the animals! It was definitely an experience to remember, and we would love to return! Ilana was so nice and helpful, and was patient with our little kids when showing them how to feed the animals. We have already recommended the experience to friends, and will continue to recommend to anyone looking to book a fun family trip! Our google maps took us to the house next door initially, but we fairly quickly realized it wasn't the right place, and discovered that there is actually a "2 the Rescue" sign outside the correct gate!

Llana is a wonderful host and it's very uplifting to experience her passion to rescue farm animals. It was our third visit with my daughter and her two sons. They are 1st and 3rd grade and they love going there to help feed the animals and harvest chicken eggs. We will definitely go back again.

Great And Invaluable Experience
2 The Rescue Animal Sanctuary is such a wonderful place, filled with genuine caring! I We stayed at 2 The Rescue last year for our daughter’s 3rd birthday weekend and she LOVED it! She loved it so much we came back again for her birthday this year! Miss Ilana made our daughter’s experience so wonderful again!!! The time she gets to spend and watch Miss Ilana care for the animals is priceless and then we stay in the RV and it is a lovely and fun RV! Thor, the coolest Dog ever always makes it beyond amazing! A truly unique and sincere experience that really models bringing kindness to this world!

Camping with Rescue Animals
Become a better human here ❤️
We returned to our happiest place on earth, this time with the family, which brought many happy first experiences - camping at an animal sanctuary(!), the parents staying in the nicely appointed camper, my dad cuddling with a 3,500 lb steer (dear Ferdie)!, roasting strawberries with marshmallows while star gazing, spending quality time with Thor, and on and on and on. Ilana has truly created a sanctuary — and perhaps without intending to, making it a sanctuary for humans. This is where one comes to become better humans. Thank you, Ilana. Can’t wait to return!!!!

Memorable Animal Sanctuary Trip!
There is almost too much to put into words about this wonderful experience - and that's what it was; AN EXPERIENCE! My partner and I wanted to get out of the city and be around nature for a dew days. This was our first time using HipCamp and I had been eyeing this listing for months. Well, you can't get much closer to nature than Ilana's sanctuary! The animals are all so sweet and beautiful. You fall in love with every single one, it's too hard not to. And Ilana as your host is everything and more: she's gracious, kind, compassionate about her mission for these animals, and HILARIOUS! We spent many hours chatting with her out in the animal yard, cool breeze ruffling up the chickens' feathers and the thick coat of Thor the Pyranese. Speaking of which, the other reviews are spot on. Give that good boy an inch, he'll take a whole mile and then some! Absolute best guardian dog you could ask for. And his sidekick, the new puppy Rocky, is a real character. Love them both to death! Every dollar of your stay goes right back into the care of welfare of these animals. Do not hesitate to come visit the sanctuary and leave with a piece of your heart yearning to return. Thank you Ilana, Thor, Rocky, Prince, Luke, Misty, Faith, Sassy, Juliette, Romeo, Rusty, Nugget, Toby, and all the other critters we came to love on our stay. I know we will back without a doubt.
