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.

Why Not Acres RV site
An amazing spot
What an amazing stay. Mike and Mirian were so welcoming. We spent three nights in our converted van. The site had water and electricity plug ins, a clean bathroom with a toilet, sink and shower, fire pits with plenty of wood and kindling (they offered to start a fire for us each night), a grill and their many rescue donkeys and miniature ponies. We saw brand new camp spots with electricity sockets as well as an RV that could be rented. We spent our days relaxing and exploring the beaches that were 40 minutes away. We are returning home recuperated! Highly recommend a stay!

Better than a campground!
Why Not Acres was wonderful! So much thought was put into this site. Dry firewood, charcoal and grill, the wooden deck, stone pad. Not to mention the animals and friendly hosts! It was a quiet place to come back to after a fun day at Bethany beach.

Peaceful campsite
Our stay was amazing! The property is secluded and the rescue animals were a treat! We are animal lovers and it made us so happy to see the horses and donkeys each night before bed. The barn cats were sweet too. My dogs loved their morning walk back to the pond and by day 3 were demanding it, lol. Mike and Marion were so nice and accommodating. We will definitely be back!

Loved our stay at Why Not Acres. Marian and her husband are incredible hosts, and have really put a lot of thought into making the experience great for guests. Very responsive during our booking, and met us upon arrival to see if we needed anything! Our kiddos loved meeting their rescue animals, and walking down to the pond. Looking forward to returning in the future!

Why Not Just Go Already.
Why not indeed? If you want a private, full hook up site with a wooden patio, and extras like a stocked fire ring and charcoal grill, then why not go! If you enjoy animals and want to see some of the happiest rescued ponies, donkeys, and horses, then what not. If you want to wander through the woods to sit by a pond and enjoy a fire, then why not.

Wonderful host, very clean and comfortable! We enjoyed the easy access to the beaches of Delaware and would have loved to use the new grill and fire pit had it not stormed at night. We wished we could stay longer!

Great Accommodations for Beach Trip
Marian's travel trailer is luxurious and very well kept. The grounds are immaculate and the area is quiet and peaceful. As our accommodations for our beach trip, we found the distance to the beaches to be accurate according to google and actually rather preferred to remove ourselves from the beach scene at night and return to our temporary 'slice' of the countryside. Highly recommend.

Truly an RVer’s Paradise
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Why Not Acres RV sites. The hosts are warm and welcoming. They have built and continue to build an amazing place for their guests. The farm is a beautiful getaway destination filled with animals that have all been rescued. They are loved and VERY well cared for, which is wonderful to see. You are welcome to roam the property and visit the barn freely. The hosts are former RVer’s and have thought of every detail that an RVer might need to feel comfortable. The sites have full hookups with sewer hoses provided and already attached ready for use. The sites are level, graveled, and have a beautiful wooden deck with chairs and tables provided. Each site has a fire pit with free firewood and a charcoal grill with free charcoal, as well as grilling tools and even aluminum trays. Trash cans are also provided and conveniently located. They have 4 tents sites, which provide 15amp power and beautiful fire pits that double as cooking grills, They are currently building a bath house for the tent sites, as well. They have a beautiful pond on the property filled with fish and turtles. There is a small dock with a swinging bench provided for your enjoyment. It has a torch on every corner post filled with fluid and even a lighter to fire them up! There is a second seating area along the side of the pond with bench chairs and another fire pit complete with free firewood . Pictures included, but you MUST visit to truly appreciate all they have to offer

This place was perfect! Clean and comfortable. Loved the horses and donkeys. The bass pond was my favorite. All four of us caught bass during our stay. I caught 12 myself!

A sweet soul retreat
Just what the Doc ordered! My girlfriends and I camp every year in late October early November. We had a little little one with us this year and needed some extra amenities. This dear farmstead is so very sweet, from the tender spirit of the rescues that call it home to the thoughtfulness of the hosts. Marian and Mike are so kind. I am excited to take my family back bc w the animals, the right mix of nature and camp opportunities, this is a for sure spot for kids to love too. I'll be back!

We love Why Not Acres!
Mike and Marian are the coolest, kindest, most amazing hosts! Their farm is beautiful, inside and out. I’ve never been to an animal rescue that was this breathtakingly gorgeous and full of love. I am obsessed with their miniature donkeys! The trailer is brand new and extremely comfortable. We also saw the camp spots on the way to the turtle pond and they looked awesome. I highly recommend staying here! You will have the best time ever. We visited Bethany Beach one day and Fenwick Island the next - lots of beautiful memories <3 thank you!!!

Great Hosts, Great Campsite!
Marian and Mike went out of their way to make camping on their farm a fun and unique experience. We had full hookups, use of BBQ grills with free charcoal and lighter fluid, and free firewood for the fire rings. The gravel RV pad was level. They even set up the hookups so that my brother and I could share them on the single 48 foot RV pad, since we both have small 15 foot RVs. The donkeys and horses were friendly and entertaining. There was even a pond for fishing where I caught a number of small bass. At the pond there are benches for sitting around another fire pit that has a grate where you can cook over the fire. Marian and Mike are both interesting people and we enjoyed visiting with them. The farm is 1/2 hour or less from Delaware and Maryland beaches if you want to visit there. You can't go wrong booking here, it's a great value and a great experience!

A little heaven on earth resort.
Being at Why Not Acres was one of my best experiences. Mike and Marian were always friendly, kind, hard working Christian couple who went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. I especially loved the rescue animals. They are friendly and enjoy pets and talked to if you stand by the fence. It was so peaceful, calm and I felt at home. It was hard to leave and we plan to return some day.
