We had the best time!! It was a perfect place for an overnight for the CGA 30th reunion and great proximity to Mystic the host Tiffany and Chris answered all questions and had great communication. Even had a you tube video on how to get to there Hipcamp and where to park. Tiffany took time to show his the goats and sheep. So fun!! Thanks for being such great hosts!!

Nice farm campsite.
Nice quiet campsite. Friendly goats and sheep. Water and electric available if you need it. Really nice farm campsite. And Chris gave us some tips on other places to see and camp as we headed north. Plus, it's really close to Mystic and the fabulous Sift bakery there.

Thanks for a great stay!
Chris's property is beautiful and very conveniently located. The camp site is next to a little barn with some cute sheep and goats and at the edge of the woods where they harvest sap for maple syrup. I loved that he provided plenty of dry firewood. Water and electric are at the barn if you need it. It feels secluded and you can just barely see Chris's house down a path through the woods. I liked that Chris came to say hi when I arrived and stopped by again the next morning to tend to the animals. He gave me some good recommendations for a beach to spend the day at.

First Time Hip Camping
Highly recommend staying at Blackburn Farm! They are the most lovey folks and great hosts. Christopher greeted us when we arrived and showed me around the site. The site had water and 50amp electric which was key with the heat wave during our visit. This is a go to spot for some relaxation after visiting the quaint town of mystic. Perfect location for access to the aquarium, sea port or downtown shops.

We loved camping at Blackburn Farm. Christopher met us when we arrived and was very welcoming. He showed us where to park our trailer, hooked up water and electric for us. The farm is in a wooded area, at the end of a long driveway but easy to navigate. The site was quiet and beautiful. There are 2 fire pits including one with a grill which we used for a campfire and cooking. A perfect night!

A wonderful stay
We loved staying at Christopher's farm! Easy to find (especially with his instructions) and within two minutes of arriving we were setup. He helped us top up the water in our van, offered us electricity and introduced us to his farm animals, including fainting goats! In the morning he messaged me and offered to bring free home-grown veggies before he headed out of town. Highly recommend.

Peace and quiet
What more can I say that hasn’t been said already? I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and Christopher could not have been any more helpful. He helped me set up my awning and offered numerous hiking and biking trail as well as dining suggestions. I took a walk Sunday morning on the trails abutting his gorgeous property and it was very nice. This was the maiden voyage for my new-to-me Boreas camper and it was a perfect place to go and get accustomed to it. The farm animals made very nice neighbors and I would love to come back again sometime. A very peaceful place. Thanks

We had a great stay at Blackburn. A peaceful setting with plenty of walking / cycling trails. Meeting the animals was a treat for all of us. Our daughter was able to help collect eggs and check out their syrup taps. The camp area is set up with a water pump and power, even though we didn’t need it. Wonderful hosts!

Mystic camping
Chris was a great host. Property is beautiful. We got fresh eggs and maple syrup from the farm. Our elementary age school kids loved the animals. Close to mystic and everything mystic offers.

Great location. Truck with 8ft bed towing a 20ft camper was good at getting to spot on property. Nice peaceful location! Would love to come back when it’s warm.

Amazing private spot
Our stay at Blackburn Farm was amazing. The spot is very private even though it was super close to town. It felt like we were in the woods! We had a nice camp fire and got to play with the sheep and other animals. The property leans against a 3mi trail that is very well marked and even goes to the water if you are up for a longer walk. Our host, Christopher, was very responsive to our inquiries and even went out of his way to upgrade electrical for the spot (the camper we had rented needed 30A). This was before we'd even booked! Talk about hospitality! Highly recommended!

Welcoming Stay - Great Hosts!
Chris and his wife were extremely welcoming. The farm is absolutely gorgeous and the sheep (3) adorable. Everything was so well thought out. We had electricity hook-up and water was available. The picnic table and fire pit (abundant firewood included) made the end to our evening very special. They also provided amazing recommendations for dinner and breakfast. We will return for sure, hopefully for a longer visit.

Gorgeous farm, close to Mystic
Blackburn Farm and our hosts, Christopher and Tiffany, were everything we were looking for. Well located between New London and Downtown Mystic, a peaceful setting with adorable farm animals, and gracious hosts who provided local insight and recommendations. I would give this stay 5 out of 5 stars and will be coming back.

Perfect Campsite; Welcoming Hosts!
I very much enjoyed camping at Blackburn Farm! Christopher and Tiffany were warm, friendly and welcoming hosts. They offer a quiet site between the barn and connected small, fenced pasture where their three black sheep have a very well-tended home, and a wooded area that provides shade. It is a great bonus that water and electric is available at the campsite, which always makes camping with a travel trailer more comfortable. A picnic table and fire ring, with firewood available, made the evenings there especially enjoyable. For me, this site very near Mystic, but completely isolated from the tourist hustle and bustle of the village center and Mystic Seaport, provided a perfect camping experience while visiting friends in the area! Do not miss a visit to Mystic Seaport, however, if you stay at Blackburn Farm. It is an amazing cultural and recreational destination.

An absolutely gorgeous property! Peaceful and private camping spot all to ourselves. Electricity and water is such a bonus. Access to hiking trails that lead into a nature preserve.
