Laughing Goat Fiber Farm is a working farm, raising exotic fiber animals such as Angora and Cashmere goats, alpacas and sheep. The fiber is processed on farm and regionally and everything made from it is hand dyed. Many items are one of a kind and hand made. A small retail shop in our renovated Carriage House showcases the knitting looms that we make items on, as well as knitting machines from 100 years ago. The property has beautiful views overlooking the Cayuga Lake Valley and Ithaca. Learn more about this land: Pitch your tent on the back 40 acres of a working goat farm.  Site #1 has a tent platform, table and firepit. The 12 x 16 tent platform backs up to the mature hedgerow of maples and oaks for afternoon shade, and the campsite overlooks Ithaca's Inlet Valley.  The platform is just a 4 minute walk to the main house, and you'll have complete privacy. Site #2 has a table and firepit, but no platform.  Site #3 has a firepit but no table or platform.  It is a level spot on the pasture where you can pitch a tent or park a vehicle.   Farm tours:  Sign up at http://tinyurl.com/goattours.

The location and accommodations were great! The spot was easy to access, had potable water, a picnic table and fire pit. The porta potty was clean and a very short walk away. We felt far enough from our neighbors for privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed saying hi to the goats right by our site and waking to a beautiful sunrise just over the hill. Would definitely recommend!

The perfect meadow 🍁🌸
Nice private spot due to the landscape. Gary greeted us upon arrival and instructions were clear. Absolutely beautiful during peak fall leaves! And the goats are so beautiful and at a distance where they weren't disruptive to sleeping.

Camping in a pasture!
Nice place to pitch camp in a wide open pasture! Host respects your privacy while being available if needed.

I loved everything about camping at Lisa’s platform came site. The portable toilet is a plus. The goats are so close you could just walk over to say hi. She provides a jug of water which was really nice. It’s so peaceful and quiet which helps for a relaxing trip.

We will be back!
We had such a fun stay here. The goats were so cute and they stay pretty close by but aren’t loud. Bring lots of tarps if you’re staying at campsite 2 cause our tent got flooded. Lisa and her husband were so kind and we got to chat with them when they dropped off more water and firewood. We will 100% be back!

My group and I had a really wonderful time camping on Lisa's land. Finding the campsite was very easy because Lisa provided us with great directions. We loved the picnic table and fire pit. Lisa also left us some water, which was lovely. The goats were very cute and fun to watch. I'd recommend this campsite to anyone that wants a fun and unique camping experience.

A Unique and Beautiful camp site!
What a wonderful and special camping experience! We loved every part of our experience, especially having the goats as our neighbors! We were on the campsite #1 with the platform, fire pit and picnic table—which was a perfect spot with a nice combination of sun in the morning and shade in the evening. The campsite was very clean and well tended. The owners of the property were so kind and generous. I highly recommend visiting their shop which has a plethora of amazing products made from their goats’ wool. There are also so many wonderful places to hike and visit all within a 15 minute radius or less of the site. If you are looking for a unique and private camping experience with lots of friendly animal companions, you have found the perfect place!

Lisa’s farm was just as described. Quiet, starry night with crisp, clean air. Easy to get to from Ithaca and the goats were adorable. Lisa was a kind and capable host.

Peaceful camping experience.
We enjoyed our night at Lisa's - our site was at the edge of a big open field with a beautiful view of the skies and hills. There was another camper there the same night but we both had plenty of space to spread out. We were able to use the contained fire pit to make s'mores and cook breakfast. There was a port-a-potty nearby for convenience. It was also really nice being able to hear the goats nearby. (I love goats!) Definitely a peaceful spot with lots of privacy.

Wonderful Hipcamp Experience.
I loved the platform camping here! Lisa is wonderful and accommodating. The view of Ithaca was so nice to see early mornings! I saw a buck and a doe each morning and evening as well as turkeys. If you are looking for serenity and a peaceful environment, this is it! You will be completely alone here but also safe. The goats were fun to visit.

Very nice and spacious campsite. Lisa a great host who goes above and beyond to accommodate guests! There were scattered showers on our reservation day and Lisa helped us get through by setting up huts (covered huts) in a quick short notice. Portable potty and drinking water were provided. Was nice to see the goats and sheep. Overall we had a great experience at Lisa’s campsite and would definitely go back.

We had a wonderful stay at Laughing Goat. The site was beautiful, private, and peaceful. Lisa was a terrific host, we met the goats, and were able to purchase some exceptional wool gifts -- including a hat hand-knitted by Lisa. Absolutely great place!

Easy camping and unique opportunity
It was a perfect spot for us…we wandered the paths, were easy distance to Ithaca for morning waffles, and LOVED our tour of the farm. Lisa was so knowledgeable and we learned so much (and got to pet goats and feed treats to alpacas!!!)…we had a unique and wonderful experience that we will always remember!
