The farm is located 15 minutes west of Indiana Universities Memorial Stadium. The property is nice and private. The farm adjoins the 75 acre Stranger Hills Organic farm, the oldest organic farm in Indiana. Our 1899 Farmhouse is the only residence on the entire farm. There is a 3000 acre farm to our south. The area is quiet and very private. The campsites are in a grassy walnut grove by a small creek that runs along the eastern border of the property. We have a white deer creek cabin tent on a platform there and 3 or 4 nice level campsites to the north. There is a shaded RV site at the top of a small hill with 30 amp service. We can accomadate a large RV on packed gravel with 50 amp serice. the farm is located 15 minutes east of McCormicks Creek State Park. There is a porti -potty and a bag shower in a small building adjacent to the campsites. There is a YMCA about five minutes East of the property.Our campsites are located in a shaded Walnut grove with a small creek running along side of the sites. We have a 10' x 12' Wall tent there on a raised platform the tent is available for $50 per night. We have five flat open sites for tent camping. The site is nice and private and would be great for a group. We have a fire ring and plenty of firewood available for sale.

The space is beautiful and private, and the hosts are helpful, personable, and attentive. There is a shelter with a full size fridge, so I didn't need to worry about keeping my cooler iced up. I will definitely be staying here again!

Thank you, Butch and Family!
I was coming in to town to do the Bloomington Handmade Market in downtown Bloomington and didn’t want to stay in a hotel when I knew I could camp for more than half the price. I took a chance on Butch’s listing, and I’m so glad I did! He was so welcoming and cheerful, and the property is gorgeous, and at night was full of fireflies and two owls calling to each other! And this is basically their backyard and only 15 mins from downtown Bloomington, which is an awesome town! While their house is in sight, it still felt like I was camping in a more remote area, in a good way. As a woman alone, I felt very safe at this property, and would absolutely stay here again. Highly recommend!! Thank you Butch and family!

Peaceful creekside retreat
Such a lovely and peaceful retreat! Camped here for a night after hiking McCormicks Creek. Plenty of room to spread out and even an outdoor toilet, which is a luxury for those that frequently off grid camp. I set up my hammock between two well placed trees and made a fire in the pit that evening. Butch is a kind and gracious host. I will absolutely stay again when I’m in the area. This was a perfect getaway.

Beautiful escape from campus
The property is quite literally a beautiful country retreat. Very quiet and private. Undulating terrain. Rustic farm buildings. I really liked it. Very close (15 minutes) to campus and restaurants. I was in town to move my child home from IU, and calling was a wonderful alternative to the expensive hotels. Butch is a great host. Extremely thoughtful and responsive. Was very concerned about my experience and eager to help. He is a retired sea captain, so I wish i had more time to get some stories of the high seas!

Butch is open and helpful to everyone staying with him. The site is open, with basic amenities, but he’ll help with whatever you need. An overflow crowd for the eclipse was accommodated, and everyone had a good time. Very close to Bloomington and IU.
