Once upon a time, this was property was hunting camp to another multi-generational family - a place where friends gathered and where stories were made. We were lucky enough to get this land a few years ago and are now building our dream - raising kids and developing a small farm. We love being hosts and welcoming community. We worked hard and stayed patient to amend zoning in our Township for Agritourism to allow farm stays. Now we get to share this special place we get to call home, with you! MORE ABOUT THE LOCATION: Enjoy an outdoor experience in beautiful Leelanau County via Agritourism at Jackson Station! Our property has 4 private sites situated among a dense pine forest on our small-scale farm.  Our farm produces pastured, all natural meat, including pork, beef, chicken and goat. Find the laying hens roaming around and see the pigs, cows and goats hanging out in the fenced in areas. A variety of cuts of meat from our freezers are available for sale or get a tour of the farmstead ~ Just ask! You may simply enjoy the scene at your leisure. We're located conveniently between the two popular vacation destinations of Glen Arbor and Leland, MI - both a short scenic drive in either direction. The Leelanau Peninsula is littered with recreational opportunities including shopping, dining, hiking, biking, beaches, boating, wine tasting, fishing, and hunting. SITE DETAILS: Each camp site has a bed of woodchips, gravel surrounding a bonfire ring, a clothesline and neatly stacked firewood. Our sites may accomodate 2 adults and their minors. You may park 1 vehicle at your site's access point. If you're traveling with more than one vehicle, multiple adults or a larger group, please book more than one camp site. We recommend that larger groups or multiple adults book more than one site next to eachother (such as Site 1 & 2 or sites 2 &3). Quiet hours are enforced between 10pm-7am. This is our home and farm, not a campground, please think of staying here in that way. A short walk from camp, down the farm road to the end of the livestock fence and garden, you'll find access to a water pump for delicious drinking water straight from our well, so that you may fill containers of water or utilize for rinsing.  Our land borders the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. You'll be just a few miles from access to beautiful Lake Michigan beaches. Relax in the sand, hunt for rocks, hike a trail, kayak or paddle-board and watch an epic sunset.  We are just down the road from the uninhabited School Lake, known for its fishing from non-motorized boats or a quiet place to paddle. Additionally, just 2 Miles away you can access the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail, a non-motorized 27 mile groomed trail that follows the scenic M-22 from our location all the way to Empire, MI. This trail is open year round to walk, run, bicycle, snowshoe or cross-country ski. 2.8 miles in the other direction from our camp, you'll find a Mountain Bikers paradise at Palmer Woods Forest Preserve, with various hiking trails and a 6 mile mountain bike trail.

Site 3 - Jackson Station Livestock, Leelanau
10/10 would recommend this site!
The campsites at Jackson Station are quiet, spacious and well maintained. The toilet is clean, trash and recycling was really nice to have, and access to School Lake nearby for a swim ("shower/bath") was perfect. The campsites are in close proximity to Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Platte River, Crystal Lake, Point Betsie Lighthouse and more! Lots of options to go out and explore or chill at camp and listen to the farm animals. Raquel and Kevin both came by and checked in through the course of my 2 night 3 day stay, and shared some history of the farm, which was awesome. Thank you for a wonderful campsite, I look forward to coming back!

Location, location
First Hipcamp experience. It worked out well and we would not hesitate to book camping at Jackson Station again. Campsites are well kept and the location is top notch relative to SBD, quaint little towns like Glen Arbor and Lake Michigan beaches. Raquel was quick to provide any info needed. They also have meat sourced from their farm that, sadly, I forgot to purchase.

Easy camping in a great location
I’ll be returning next Summer for sure! The perfect location close to all my favorite beaches, Glen Arbor and Leland. The campsite was private enough yet still close to the drinking water and my vehicle. The wood-chips are surprisingly convenient for tents and easy kindling for the campfire. The firewood stack at each site was also nice. The stars were amazing.

Absolutely lovely and refreshing stay at Jackson Station. The campsites are well maintained, private, and sizeable. Raquel was very communicative. The farm animals were a great feature and gave us a fun walk to do every day. Plentiful wood and other amenities provided. Big recommend from us!
