The farm you’re camping on is one of the last family farms remaining in Columbia County and is currently named Glenn Farm after DV Glenn who married Hettie Lou Niblack in the 1930’s. Over the last 150 years it has been farmed by some of the county’s oldest families such as the Niblack and Ellis families. When DV Glenn came to Florida from his farm in Cairo, GA he took over the portion of the Niblack farm that was inherited by his wife Hettie Lou. At that time he was running native Florida cattle on over 6000 acres. Unfortunately, In 1951 he was killed in a hunting accident leaving his wife with the farm and 4 children (ages 4-11). In order to survive, Hettie Lou Niblack Glenn was forced to sell 5000 acres at $25 an acre. Holding a bachelors degree from Florida State College for Women, she was able to secure a job at the University of Florida as a secretary and with the money from the land sale she was able to raise her four children. Of the original farm, 600 acres remain intact and the Glenn family is trying to keep the farm as an agricultural operation. Your campsite is 1 of three spots (Arrowhead Sink, Dunagan’s Meadow or Magnolia Sink). Dunagan’s meadow is a pasture behind the old farmhouse, Magnolia sink is also on the main farm while Arrowhead Sink is on the edge of a hayfield about a mile down a dirt road. Glenn Farm is a place to come relax and experience a world that is rapidly disappearing. It is not a commercial campground.

Dunagan’s Meadow
Farm Camping In Paradise
My family and I recently camped at Glenn Farms in Dunagan's Meadow. We made memories to last a lifetime. Tom is a wonderful and kind host who truly brings your stay to the next level. He took time to show us other areas of the farm and shared history and stories about the family land. The site was clean and my children thoroughly enjoyed the sheep and cows. Sunrises over the meadow are beautiful and sunsets serene. There are multiple springs in the area close by which are perfect for day trips. We are already talking about our trip back.

Magnolia sink
We stayed at the Magnolia sink tent site. It was beautiful & peaceful. There's a field with sheep & cows you'll pass by or thru on the way in. The stars at night were amazing. We saw a variety of wildlife & heard even more. There were no mosquitos or annoying bugs around during our stay. There's grocery stores just a few miles away. Tom & his family are lovely hosts. 12 out of 10 rating.

A magical little piece of land!
The space was so beautiful and private! Woke up to a beautiful sunrise over the open field! Tom, the host, couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful! He showed us around as we fed the cows, sheep and goats. The sink hole is absolutely magical!

Arrowhead Sink
Cutest cows on the planet
This was hands-down the best hip camp I’ve ever had the pleasure of staying at. Tom was a wonderful host and showed us around the farm, giving us feed to feed the cows and sheep. What he does is very sustainable and we so appreciate the mission behind the farm. We will DEFINITELY be back. Also… that cave is GORGEOUS! The cave site has a composting toilet which is really nice.

Dunagan’s Meadow
My partner and I took on our first camping trip together at this site and loved every moment of it. We also paddled Ichetucknee springs which is about 10 minutes from here! It stormed the second night but it was peaceful, the cows are so friendly and we got to feed them corn. We could’ve talked to Tom all day about many topics, he will definitely be invited to our wedding 😂❤️ We left here feeling so inspired and moved. Gorgeous sunsets and sunrises too. I really can’t say enough good things about staying here, we definitely plan to return sooner than later.
