PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE BOOKING... 30 acres of mostly reclaimed farmland. We are located where Glade Creek flows into the Monocacy River. There is evidence of civil war activity here and the old river ford is on our property. Creek and river access make this a beautiful, peaceful place that is full of life. The energy here is overwhelmingly positive. Our house was built in the 1850s and the neighboring farm was built shortly after—lots of history on this property. You will be able to camp right next to Glade Creek which is always cool, clean, and refreshing. Our goal with opening the land up for camping is to eventually phase out commercial farming on the property and transform it into woodlands using native plants and trees. We've already started by planting hundreds of native tree species along the creek and river banks. Each camper gets us closer to that goal! Thanks for your support! See our map in the gallery for a complete overview of our property including site locations. Please note that you will need to drive back through the crossing to access the portable toilet. Property occasionally floods. Zero flash floods, just slow river overflow. Check this site for flooding info. https://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?gage=fdkm2 Flood stage is 15 feet.

Site North
Tent camping on Jon-Mikel’s land was a blast! Site North (or Site 6) was very private and secluded. Access to the creek is an easy walk, bring some waiters to explore! A few of us even took a polar bear plunge in the water. I would love to come back in the summer for a swim. Definitely recommend, will return.

Great spot at the river!
Great spot and secluded, yet safe. Great views of the river and good fire spot. Jon was helpful when we arrived and didn’t interfere with the fun unless we needed him. Very attentive. There is a small river to cross by car so make sure you don’t bring your lowered BMW lol. I thought it was awesome to cross the river, thankfully I had a jeep!
