38 acres hosted by Kristy W.
5 RV/tent sites
My dad bought the farm in 1975 and it used to be a working dairy and sheep farm. My dad passed away while cutting our oat field on mothers day 2003, our little farm started to break down. We have recently been working on it to bring it back to life and hope to have it up and running strong again soon. Hopefully have a produce stand or garden soon to offer more options for our guests. Learn more about this land: Our farm is 3miles west of town within 10 miles to lake for fishing, boating, hiking, and even disk golf. Right off of I-5 by a Pilot travel center. Public pool 3miles(1pm-5pm, water arobics Tue and Thur 6-7pm $2, family night Tue and Thur 730-9pm June-Aug) as well as shopping and dining within 3miles. Great sunset and area to roam for a bike ride or walk in the country in our little hick town with only about 8000 population. It is very likely you will hear animals so if your a light sleeper you may want ear plugs. Chickens crow, cows bellow, and dogs bark. Driveway is rough and we are working on getting it fixed asap so please take your time coming up. There is FIELD roaches you may see soon after we irrigate, they are bigger then the nasty cockroach but harmless. The wind can be up to 30mph at times so be prepared with extra rope to tie down and secure if your in a tent also park vehicle to help block from wind and driveway. It does get up into the 100° here during summer so it would be good to have shade or plan to keep cool during the hottest parts of the day. Longer stays are best done at sites 4 and 3 further from the driveway. Quick stops just to sleep are best at 1 and 2.

Quite and peaceful
The host was very flexible and reachable. Accommodated all of our requests and made our stay very pleasant! The view to the field was beautiful and it is a nice quiet neighbor to have peaceful sleep at night! Highly recommend!

#2 bring your tent or camper
This campsite worked fine for me for an overnight. I love how quiet it is there; and it's pretty easy to get to and find. It might not be for everyone - it is very rustic, with the most basic possible toilet - a potty chair over a bucket in an old wood outhouse. And I wasn't able to find the hose for water. But it is in a beautiful pastoral setting, which is very nice. One thing the owners might do is get a picnic table for each site - that would help. In the end, I really appreciated this option was there because there is very little available camping in this area at this time of year (Nov). And the price was right!

Perfect if you want peace and quiet
Nice quiet spot just off the freeway. Exactly what we needed before a big day on the road

#3 Bring your tent or camper
This site was fine for a one night stay, but not up to the standard that I've experienced at other Hipcamp locations. I'll just leave it at that.

Reasonably priced, safe space to sleep in the car when you're traveling through.
