Named “Favorite Hipcamp Site in the State of Maryland" by OUTSIDE MAGAZINE in 2020! The tallest structure on our farm is the windmill, constructed in 1874, and it quickly became the logo for our farm because a windmill is something that harnesses power for a specific purpose. For many generations, the windmill harnessed the power of the wind to grind grain or pump water, but now in the 21st century, Willet Family Farm hopes to harness the power of the outdoors to benefit every guest that comes to visit. The Willet Farm survived many hardships including The Great Depression, the 1999 tornado that destroyed the barn, and cancer that claimed the life of family members too early. In 2006, The farm had to be sold outside of the family, but in an effort to honor past generations and preserve the heritage of what the farm stood for (faith, family and hard work), Jeremy and Kathleen Willet purchased the farm back in 2017. The 13 acre farm is perfectly located in the middle of over 200 acres of farmland owned by parents and cousins. Since that time, we have welcomed over 200 guests from 20 different states and 4 different countries! We are a small family homestead, board horses and are a Renewable Energy Farm completely powered by the sun through a comprehensive solar design on our barn.Recently named "FAVORITE HIPCAMP IN THE STATE OF MARYLAND" by OUTSIDE MAGAZINE! Located in rural Carroll County, Maryland, Willet Family Farm is in the middle of 200 acres of farmland, completely secluded from any other houses. Enjoy fireflies and the sound of bullfrogs at night, and sights of deer, ducks, horses and chickens in the morning.  The campsite and farm are conveniently located on a backroad off of Route 140 (the main road leading to famous attractions in Gettysburg, Baltimore & Washington D.C.), so some road noise is expected, but thankfully the beautiful, natural tree parameter around the farm blocks the view of any traffic and helps reduce road noise. We purposefully have only one campsite for the whole farm so you have more privacy.  Enjoy! *Please note that our county only allows one RV or Tent on a campsite per night. Please help us in respecting our local leadership by complying with this regulation. Thank you.

A wonderful couple of nights. Nice view of the barn and field. The port o potty is right at the site and was very clean. Trash and recycling cans also right there. There are trees on the west side of the site but is wide open to the east. So not much shade at the site until 4pm or so (in May). Beautiful sunrises over the hills. We met Jeremy and Kat briefly, very nice folks. Next time we’d bring our shade structure and be all set.

Great little spot with picnic table, fire pit and DRY firewood to purchase. Hosts were super accommodating to our needs and very communicative when we needed to communicate something. Also, Martin is our new best friend now after hanging by the fire with us. 🐶

Amazing Experience
This is such a great piece of land. Convenient dry wood bundles offered, bathroom on site, ample seating for plenty of people, fire pit with cooking grate provided; couldn’t ask for a better place to stay last night. Also Martin is the goodest boy ever 🐶

This was my first time camping and I couldn’t imagine another place to camp for the first time. Even though I came on the wrong date of my reservation, I was welcome to stay in camp because no one else booked and I was able to move my reservation to the day I arrived on the app. I was greeted by Jeremy and Martin the farm dog, Martin kept me company throughout the day and night, even though they were not expecting me the campsite was clean. The potty was ready for campers. I drove on the grass to get better leveling for shelter. They have everything you need to start a fire. I picked a farm for my first camping experience mainly to see the animals for therapeutic reasons. Unfortunately, I was unable to see the animals because I was too relaxed and took a nap. Just being at the campsite was cleansing so I definitely have to book again to see everything but if you just need to stay here for the night to get away, I highly recommend. There is a main road you can hear but it doesn't disrupt the vibes. Thank you again Willet Family!

Stay here!
This place was amazing!! We loved the space, the amenities, and the hosts! They were very accommodating and made sure our dog felt safe in the space. You can hear a busier road from the site, but it wasn’t enough to bother us. We will definitely be booking again!

Great view!
This was our first Hipcamp stay. We booked last minute and everything turned out great. We loved the private space of the campground and it had a beautiful view. Very happy to have firewood right next to the campsite. My daughters love horses and to our surprise there was a horse right across from the campsite that they got to enjoy seeing during our stay! Also because of how open the space is we had a great view of the stars at night.
