We offer 11 unique campsites with plenty of space and privacy. Each site has two picnic tables, a fire ring, parking for two cars and plenty of space for your tents. We also offer three lovely cabins, which have power and access to a shared kitchen and bathroom with a hot shower. Our 33 acres include a native plant nursery, community gardens, forests, meadows, and nature trails. Our site has lots of nature trails, is peaceful and beautiful and just a 5-minute walk to Jug Handle Beach and the Jug Handle Preserve. Our Mission: We offer a welcoming and supportive environment for people of all backgrounds to explore nature and connect with the natural word.

#7 - Large Sunny Family Spot
Camping with kids
Tyler's campground and farm were charming for our family - we loved the full grass area, as we could spread out, but still explore the other amenities (waterfall, stream, pond). I ordered eggs and fire wood ahead of time. For one night, great experience!

#9 - Walk into Forest
Jughandle Farm is Superbly Serene
This campground is part of a working farm with plenty of quiet forest space and a short and scenic walk to a beautiful beach. We chose Site #9 because it was a bit tucked away from the road, but every site appeared to be spacious and secluded. The Porta Potty was well serviced and the picnic table and fire ring were perfect. We enjoyed being with only tent campers around us with nothing but the sounds of the forest enveloping us. Plus, we found numerous banana slugs hanging out in our site area which was extra cool.

We really liked this spot. Plenty of room for our Expedition and Van. Loved the hike down to the beach, our dogs especially loved this part. Very quiet and peaceful spot.

The actual campsite was difficult to find. We spent some time wandering around the property as the map we received at the entrance was inaccurate. I was told I could text to have firewood delivered and never received a response. When we actually located the campsite, there was no way to wash our hands and there was one port a potty available for all campers, as far as I could tell. The site itself was fine, we were just using it as a place to sleep for the night. Any expectation of more than that, I wouldn’t recommend.
