Wildwood is almost 100 years old and we have been lovingly renovating this property for the past few years. The lake used to be horse pasture until the breeding operation halted and the lake was built. We share this farm with many animals, domestic and wild, and are glad to be a small part of its long history. We love sharing this place with people who appreciate nature’s beauty. Learn more about this land: Wildwood is a small acreage hobby horse farm in a rural setting on large acreage private lake. Two kayaks and a small row boat are available, but bring your own fishing gear. The lake is stocked with bass and brim. You will always catch a fish here! Want to relax? Our farm is peaceful and serene, with local wildlife and great birding opportunities. We have an incredible variety of migratory songbirds that we welcome to the farm each year. You may even get to see bald eagles fishing the lake if you’re quiet. Watch the horses graze in their fields and geese land in the lake as the sun sets. A small slice of heaven on earth, the star gazing is phenomenal on clear nights. The cicadas, crickets and bullfrogs create a natural sound machine for restful nights. No light pollution out here and the Milky Way can be seen. We are just 15 minutes from 1-55, and 18 minutes to the scenic Natchez Trace Parkway for traveling and cycling. 20 minutes to the Reservoir for large scale fishing, boating and water sports. Level gravel parking area with electric and water availability is right next to our barn. There are bugs (it’s nature) in the spring/summer/fall so please bring bug spray and be prepared. We use Mosquito Spartans to help keep mosquitoes in control.

Wildwood Campsite
We had a great time tent camping at Wildwood! They had a nice flat field with a gorgeous view of the lake that was the perfect spot to set up camp. The area was active with wildlife, from fish jumping about in the lake to birds singing their songs. Helen reached out when we arrived and told everything we needed to know about the property and where we could set up. We had a wonderful experience!

Camping with Horses
A nice place to spend the night. Our hosts met us on arrival and we had a pleasant talk. About a half dozen horses on the property who seemed quite friendly, but we resisted the urge to feed them. The view was fantastic overlooking a lake. Parking was easy and a 30 A power connection was available. We would stop there again.

Camping at wildwood camp site is a great way to get away and forget about everything! the horses are beautiful and the land is huge, and Helen and mark are so welcoming and loving. Me and my finance fished and floated the lake, and got a nice sun burn. all around enjoyed the time away. We stayed in a tent, made s’mores and ate some good snacks, we definitely will be back!

Helen and Mark were very welcoming and helpful hosts. The farm setting on the lake and with several horses is a beautiful setting. For those bicycle camping, as I was, they made many gracious accommodations to make that mode of travel work well. I highly recommend staying there.
