I grew up on a farm and thrilled to be enjoying country living once again! We are not annual campground, but we have space on the property for travelers needing an overnight or two. We can be found on HIPCAMP listed under OLD RUGGED BARN. We are in central IL near Historic Rt 66, minutes north of Bloomington-Normal with easy access from I-55. The property is a small 3.5 Acre farmstead that includes our event venue, space that can used for campers, and my home. We offer space for Campers through Hipcamp. We are NOT a campground per se. We do have space on our property to comfortably accommodate up to 8 spaces for Overnight guests. I moved to the farm in 2010 with the intent to simply enjoy the peace And quiet of country living. Then I realized we Could create a place that could serve as a place for community to gather for special events. We are making constant strides to utilize Our 3.5 acres highlighted by the Old Rugged Barn venue and welcome the opportunity to host any kind of public and private event! The Old Rugged Barn..... where happy happens!!

The Old Rugged Barn Campout!
The porta potty was in serious need of being emptied. Possibly the worst outdoor toilet I have ever experienced. I expected basic hand sanitizer to be provided. After using the facility I definitely needed it.

Jo couldn’t have been more accommodating as a host. The only thing I have to let be known is if one doesn’t want to camp where outdoor lighting is plentiful I wouldn’t recommend. The grounds are set up to be a venue for special events and it would be awesome to me to go to a wedding there or any other event for that matter. I certainly would camp there again if it was in my path but if I wanted a wilderness camping experience I would look elsewhere.
