Saint Anne's Chapel and Oak Grove Retreat Center is a unique historical venue for your next camp site in the Tarboro area of North Carolina. The farm was originally established in 1832 by the Pender Family. On the current 25 acres is a restored 1920s Episcopal Mission Church with parklike grounds that is maintained year-round and has a rich and interesting history. We have host a wide variety of events over the years, including weddings, receptions, meetings, retreats, drum circles, sound healing's, festivals and more. Camping is available in the field or in the 17 acre woods. Learn more about this land: Welcome to Oak Grove - a property with a 100 year old deconsecrated Episcopal church, beautiful woods, and amazing grandfather oaks. A common site for weddings, drum circles, and other metaphysical and spiritual happenings, the property has a labyrinth, a free expression chalkboard, a Zen sand box that are free to use.  A short walk down the wooded trail brings you to a small clearing with a central fire pit and several areas suitable for a tent. Situated close to a road, traffic can be heard but easily tuned out, particularly as the road gets much quieter at night. The woods are next to a large open field that is great for star gazing.  Bring your hammock!

Amazing place !!
Oak Grove retreat is an amazing place ! We stayed two nights and it was a perfect fit for us and our 7months baby girl. A beautiful land, magic buildings and adorable hosts. We also met other visitors and enjoyed a beautiful fire all together ! Kids were so happy to spend some time together :) Thank you again !

A perfect oasis
The property is just so amazing! If you’re looking for a peaceful setting that’s right off of HWY 64, this is your spot. There is a short nature trail through the woods, a wonderful labyrinth, hammocks in strategic locations and above all, an atmosphere of pure peace and love. Yes, there are traffic sounds, but I’ve been able to ignore them for the most part. I just feel like this is an oasis that has been waiting for me for a long time. Kevin and his wife are very friendly and gracious people who are “real”. The composting toilets are clean and sufficient for getting the job done. I did not use the outdoor shower, but it was made available to me.

The glamping tent was awesome; very clean and comfortable with plenty of space to sit and enjoy. The restroom was well-maintained and kept clean, and the land was a pleasure. Kevin and Trish were very hospitable and helpful.

A great place with good vibes!
I tent camped with my two sisters, we needed a place to stay on our way to Sylvan Heights Waterfowl Park (well worth visiting) the next day. Our hosts at Oak Grove Farm Woods greeted us, showed us around and explained everything clearly. The outhouse was clean and odor-free, there was a hand washing station as well as a warm water outdoor shower. We loved the hammocks and the open feeling of the property. There's lots to look at, and good places to just chill out. The road sounds were not objectionable at all. Slept soundly, woke up happy.

Oak Grove Glamping Tents
My weekend retreat at Oak Grove Retreat was such a magical weekend of meeting new amazing musicians and reconnecting with old friends. The land is absolutely enchanting with beautiful trees, flowers and wildlife. The labyrinth walk under the giant oak trees was the most peaceful experience. Kevin and Tricia rescued this special place on earth and nurture it for the rest of us to come and enjoy. The camping accommodations and especially the 2 “glamping” tents provide just what you need. I will definitely plan to go back again.
