Willows Farm is a beautiful up and coming 165 acre, regenerative, cattle farm, raising 100% grass finished beef and high quality hay. Our farm is family owned and operated and is located in the beautiful rolling hills of northeast Frederick County in Union Bridge Maryland, just off route 75 on a quiet, country road. Please note the farm entrance address is 11935 Simpsons Mill Road, Keymar, MD, but the farm is technically located in Union Bridge. Enjoy the peace and quiet of nature and relax near the campfire with your wood fired dinner. This site has electric and water hookup and firewood is available for a small fee. The campsite is situated at the highest point of Willows Farm, offering tranquil farm views, gorgeous mountain vistas and spectacular sunsets. Soak up the beautiful countryside during your stay on the farm and hike our 25 acres of wooded property and chase a few bunnies and spot a herd of deer. Take a brisk walk to the cattle pastures and chat with our curious and friendly Black Angus heifers, Eleni, Lola and Maggie — they love visitors. Thelma & Louise are our two Hereford/Wagyu cross heifers and are less enthusiastic about visitors, but are very cute (you can't miss them... they are white faced and together). If you are fortunate enough to have the timing right, you can even watch an airplane take off and land on our farm grass strip — "Willows Landing", which is just to the north (cardinal direction) of the campsite. Just 30 minutes to Gettysburg battlefields, historical downtown Frederick, and many other exciting places for exploration, Willows Farm is a great location for fun! Spend an evening watching Bull riding and barrel racing at J Bar W Ranch just a few minutes down the street in Johnsville. If vineyards and breweries are your thing we are just 15 - 30 minutes from many fine establishments. A few of our favorites are Black Ankle Vineyards, Linganore Winecellars and Attaboy Beer. Antique shopping abounds in the nearby charming, little town of New Market. So you're hungry and have a hankering for local cuisine? Take a five minute drive to the quaint downtown of Union Bridge and visit one of the three delicious family run restaurants. You can even take a few minutes to give your truck a bath at the Union Bridge Car Wash in the middle of town. Enjoy your stay and please contact us if we can help with anything.

Curtis' property was an awesome site. Ton of open land with a great view at the top of a hill. Sunset and sunrise were beautiful. Curtis was very friendly and helped us get set up with a campfire.

Unfortunately disappointing
So I never saw this site. It was going to rain the weekend I was going to stay here so Curtis sent me a message the day before asking if I can stay at site #1 instead because he didn't want me making ruts on the grounds. I do understand that so I obliged. Site #1 was nice but not as secluded as I would have liked but still beautiful and nice star gazing. The next morning I sent a message asking if there was a bathroom on this site since I didn’t see one. There wasn’t one which is fine and I don’t mind walking to the other site but this was also when Curtis texted me this: "I do have campers coming to site one today so you will have to go to site two today" (that was the whole text by the way) I was definitely disappointed especially since I already set up camp and would have to pack up and move but what upset me the most was the lack of apology for the inconvenience especially since I wanted to stay at site# 2 in the first place. Since I had to pack up move to the other site, I just ended up leaving. Definitely disappointed but hopefully future campers will be treated better than I was.

One of our favorite places to camp, and will spoil you for camping at many other places. Quiet, secluded, and beautiful rolling hills and mountains all around you. And, just when we thought it couldn’t get much better, Curtis makes it even better by adding a sewer clean out nearby, allowing us to stay even longer! Curtis is an awesome host, always enjoy taking with him about all he’s doing with the farm. We will always come here when we in the area visiting family.

My second time staying, just as great as the first time. Also, my truck battery died when I arrived and he was kind enough to come and give me a jump!

Spectacular Sunrise!
This was a really good Hipcamp. A little bit out of the way relative to the main roads, but the payoff is a gorgeous bucolic setting on an immaculate angus farm. Just a lovely quiet spot with 360 degree views with nice mowed grass and hardpacked gravel driveways to walk on. We got there just a smidge after sunset on a rainy night so we cannot speak to sunset, but sunrise was gorgeous. We have put this on our "definitely go back whenever we are in the area" list and we'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful beautiful spot.

We had a great time! The camp site was beautiful and secluded. Our dog seemed to enjoy it as well. At night, it was great to walk out in the meadow to star gaze as the sky was super clear. Would totally return!

We couldn’t have had a better set-up for our first travel trailer trip! Curtis’s land was just beautiful. The sunrise and sunsets were magic. Curtis was so kind and came to check on us a few times to make sure we were all set. We really appreciated that! It was fun watching the cows in the fields, and we enjoyed the short walk through the meadows and forest. Curtis generously included some firewood which we put to good use making s’mores in the fire pit. The kids were so excited to see the stars! It was easy to set up on the site and the directions were easy to follow. We’ll be back!

Wooded Retreat
This was my first HipCamp experience and the bar is now set high for all future adventures! To say I enjoyed tent camping at this site is an understatement. The directions were clear and traveling over the rolling hills of the farmland to get to the site in the woods was a treat itself. Beautiful wooded site, very private and relaxing. I came with one tent, but plenty of room for additional tents in your group. Enjoyed peeping at stars through the trees by the campfire and listening to the chorus of critters and insects. An awesome solo getaway. I will definitely be back!

Beautiful property and kind hosts. We enjoyed the privacy at site 2, in the woods. It was quiet and we even heard owls at night. Really enjoyed it with our group of 5.

We enjoyed our two-night stay at Willows Farm. We needed space and the farm didn’t disappoint! Curtis, the host, came to greet us and made sure we had everything we needed. It is impressive how meticulously maintained the grounds were, as it is quite a lot of property! The endearing cattle were so adorable. They were not people shy and they were fluffy I feel like I just wanted to reach out and touch them (but I didn’t!) It was a little windy being on top of the hill, we kept our fire on from afternoon till bedtime, and heated our food on top of the iron grate. I was disappointed to see the sun disappear behind the tree line to set, but lo and behold, towards the East, the moon was about to rise! Thank you, for generously sharing your space! We hope to be back!

Cows and open skies!
As we arrived at this site, the directions given are spot on. We got to the site with the RV and the hookups were easy! This was my first time planning for an RV since it is my parents' motorhome and I can't imagine a more perfect spot to get away from it all! I inquired about a tent on the side in addition and Curtis was very quick to respond and said it wasn't a problem! We walked around the area and explored in the woods. But our favorite part was saying hi to his cows! As we walked up they were super curious to meet us and we talked with them for a bit :) There was so much room that we even got out the cornhole game we brought and used the firepit that was well made! Curtis informed us of some kindling to get the fire going and we added some $$ to the pot to get a few extra bundles since the wood was super dry! We got to see the sun set and stargze with the open sky. While there are some things to do in the area, we stayed put and enjoyed nature. Overall, it was an amazing experience and Curtis made us feel very welcome! We will for sure be back!

With beautiful views and peaceful skies, we couldn’t recommend this site more. It was an incredible experience with stunning sunrises. We even got to see the launch of spaceX, so you can only imagine what the shooting stars would be like to see!

Great camping with twins and dog!
360° of beautiful views! We took out dog and twin boys with us. The campsite was super easy to find and very friendly use with a travel trailer. Our rig is about 52' long with truck included and backing in and pulling out was a breeze. water & electric hooks up were superb. Mountains on one side and rolling hills on all the others, everywhere one looked was amazing. Curtis, was very responsive and a lovely host. Recommend the veggies and firewood with your stay.

Perfect Woodsy Camping Spot!
This is a spacious, shady, private camping spot on a lovely farm. Great location that feels convenient but removed from society, while still having a lot of activity options. Curtis was a courteous host who seems eager to improve the farm's amenities for his guests. A perfect place for a quick fall camping getaway. We will definitely be back! Note: Although the description states there is a pit toilet, there is currently no toilet facility at all. Per Curtis, an outhouse facility will be installed soon. We mistakenly thought the new outhouse mentioned in the description was in addition to/an improvement on existing facilities but there are no existing facilities. Just keep this in mind to make sure you're comfortable!

I’ve camped a lot in Maryland, and this campsite has one of the best views I’ve come across!! Full view of the sky/stars, and sunrise and sunset. The site was flat, and the fire pit has tall rocks that make a fire in a light breeze no problem.

Curtis’s farm is a real gem. It’s beautifully maintained! It has a sense of simplicity and elegance. You are parked at the peak of a hill and you get fantastic views of the mountains off to the west and beautiful rolling hills to the south. Curtis is a wonderful host! He checks on you briefly to meet and greet and extend any services, but gives plenty of space so that you feel secluded and private. The entrance to the camp rarely gets used so there are almost no vehicles passing you, making you feel like you are all alone. I traveled with my wife and 11 month old and we just loved it so much. You can tell curtis has integrity in what he does and the place he offers. He is a kind and generous man and we will 100% be returning to this place!!
