All to yourself
100% of recent Hipcampers say this Hipcamp felt private.
8-acre gentleman’s farm covered in beautiful, drooping Norway Spruce. 40,000 acres of state land accessible by dirt roads directly from the property. Equidistant from Traverse City night life and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. 2 miles from quaint downtown Lake Ann and Lake Ann Brewery. Small town Michigan at its finest. Choose to park on a level concrete pad near the horses and likely be woken up by our rooster, chickens and ducks, or pull back into the woods for a peaceful oasis and view of the back field. Running water and power available at the barn (no hook ups).Located just outside downtown Lake Ann, you can get a taste of small town Northern Michigan. Our farm is approximately half way between Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park and downtown Traverse City. Pull your camper onto a flat concrete pad next to the horse barn. Listen to the chickens, ducks, and the snorts of the horses. Tucked in the woods, the sounds of the city and traffic are nonexistent. Depending on the season fresh eggs may be available. 2nd site available tucked further into the woods for tent campers. Bring your boat, bring your dog, bring your wife. Perfect Northern Michigan getaway.

Private, rustic woods camping :)
Dillon was a great host - greeted upon arrival at the horse barn, super communicative/helpful throughout, and provided private/secluded experience. We loved saying hello to the horses as we came and went, feeding them apples, grass - eventually they would came running to us as we passed - very special. Plenty of woods camping spots to choose from down narrow path which opens up to a beautiful field for sunrise, sunset views. Able to gather enough down wood on site for two small fires (recommend byow or request from Dillon). Only 4 minute drive to grocery store in Lake Ann for all needs during stay, small public beach access to the lake right in town to cool down with restroom available to use/clean up as needed. Check out Lake Ann Brewing great beers, awesome vibe with live music outdoors and pizza, ice cream next door to top it off. On property camp site we had enough cell signal to message, play music by fire, etc. Overall awesome stay. Thanks Dillon -Sam & Bri-

Would return! Great spot.
Fantastic property, great for getting away and having some peace and quiet. Property is conducive/safe for dogs which was huge for us. Dillon is a great communicator and provides a small wooded oasis. Would 10/10 recommend to anyone.

Annual Fishing Trip!
The Brown family farm was a great place to set up camp for out annual Traverse City Fishing trip! All the campsites were booked around the area so good thing I was able to find this hidden gem last minute! Dillon was very communicative throughout the whole process as I have never used Hipcamp before this. He made us fell comfortable and was always there to answer any questions we had. Very accommodating! We were able to camp back in the woods surrounded by tall pines with a beautiful starry night sky and just a walk away from a beautiful sunset over some fields! It was very peaceful out there. Waking up and and seeing horses and ducks and chickens was a bonus! We were only 5-15 minutes from 5 lakes we were fishing all week which made it very convenient! We will DEFINITELY be coming back next year, maybe even this fall again!

Great host. Very accommodating. Water hose available in the barnyard. Helped me out with some electric for my CPAP. Very private rustic primitive sites in the woods. We shared the barnyard with the chickens, ducks and horses. Slab for 30 ft camper. Very convenient location to explore Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes and the Leelanau peninsula.
