HORSES WELCOME!  Why not run your horse on the beach, then come to our campsites to relax for the rest of your day.  There is a fenced pasture positioned next to the sites so you can see your faithful friend enjoying some grass or hay.  We have a new Zinger 29' trailer set up with a bunk room and another bedroom, full kitchen and bathroom.  It can easily sleep six people.  If you have your own RV, we have a full hook up at the same area.  The pasture where your horse stays will also have hay, water and shelter with a run-in.  This is a sanctuary for our animals.  We have nine animals here, four horses (some minnies) and five donkeys (some minnies).  By staying here, you will be helping us to support our animals.  We are in Frankford, De which is close to all the beaches and parks.  There are many shopping adventures awaiting you, either outlets or upcycle stores.  If you just want to relax, there is a small pond out back stocked with bass and turtles.  We have 17+ acres but we only use the front five acres and leave the rest for the deer, foxes, eagles, hawks and whatever else shows up.  We believe this is Heaven on earth and would love to share it will you.  So please come, stay at our farm and relax.  We are here year round.

My 2 boys and I stayed for 2 nights and it was wonderful. Marian and Mike are so welcoming and kind, and their rescue animals are so sweet. My boys loved the camper - it was very clean, and spacious. We will definitely be back, highly recommend! Perfect for families with little kids too - can see animals right outside the camper windows, and help feed them

Why Not Acres RV site 1
Great level rv site with full hook ups, deck area with chairs, grill, and a picnic table. Very peaceful and away from the hustle and bustle of the beaches. Also has a nice wooded area set up for tent camping. Lots of animals to see. Miriam was able to accommodate us at the last minute for an extra night which really helped us out!

This was our second time at Why Not Acres and it keeps getting better! The shower house was finished and there were more animals! Marian & Mike are so accommodating and friendly. The free, dry firewood is the best!
