Only had time for a brief stay but appreciated that Chris’ land was beautiful, the sites well maintained, the directions clear, and getting to see the animals! The town is close by and has cute places to eat and try out. Would love to camp again when it’s drier to explore the nature preserve as well!

Chris's farm was a perfect spot for our family. Everything was laid out just as Chris said it would be. Very sweet animals too!

Wide open space. Chris was very responsive and helped us book a last minute riding lesson. Site was located within an easy walk to local shops. Also firewood was top tier def worth the purchase over the store brought.

Lovely Farm Space - Relaxing!
Beautiful space. Goats and pigs are super friendly and love to be pet! Farm is in a residential area and walking distance to restaurants, so you are not in the middle of nowhere (pro or con, depending). Was very quiet at night and lovely at sunrise. Free wood provided, but I didn't use it. Basic porta-potty, but clean. I didn't do any add-ons and just walked around the farm and the nearby preserve. Will return!

Second time was perfect
Second time to Maple Shade Farm, site 1. Beautiful property and wonderful trip. Serene and peaceful. Chris makes you feel at home and is there if you need anything. A perfect trip!

Love Camping at Maple Shade Farms!
I stayed at Campsite #2 over Labor Day weekend for my first stay, and had such a nice time that I knew I wanted to bring my partner to enjoy the farm as well. We had a lowkey anniversary camping trip this past weekend, and everything was fantastic. From the super clean porta potty to plenty of wood waiting for us at camp (and covered to protect it from the rain), everything was as nice and organized as my first stay. This time we added on the "meet and greet" of the animals, and enjoyed learning about all the sweeties that call Maple Shade their home. I highly recommend this absolute gem of a HipCamp!!!
