Farley’s Farm Sanctuary is a grassroots 501c3 nonprofit animal sanctuary located on 5 acres in Swanton, OH. The campsite is located in the heart of the woods. This is a hike in primitive camp site (about 1/4 mile walk depending where you park) . We have a wagon and wheelbarrows available for use for hauling stuff back to the site. All money raised from this camp site goes back into building our sanctuary and provides ongoing care for our rescued animals! Oak Openings Metropark (including HEAVY Brewery) is located less than 5 miles away and offers a plethora of outdoor activities. Also located nearby is Johnston’s Fruit Farm (apple picking, pumpkin patch, fresh cut flowers, etc.) Tano’s Pizza (we recommend V-6 without cheese plus breadsticks no parm) and China Garden (vegetable tofu!) will deliver food here. The campsite includes a fire pit and composting toilet!Pitch your tent on the cleared area behind the fire pit. There is a composting toilet available that includes instructions for use posted on the wall. Feel free to have a fire! A few chairs and a table are available at the site. You will be surrounded by trees! The campsite is located off of a loop trail in the middle of the woods.

I loved camping here! The campsite is an easy walk from where you park your car—enough that it feels secluded but not so far that it's a hike. Getting to spend time with the animals was such a lovely bonus and I'm still thinking about the turkeys who followed me around so they could get petted. Melanie was so welcoming and friendly and I hope to be back soon!

I really enjoyed my stay on Melanie's land! The campsite was spacious, but also secluded. I heard and saw a lot of wildlife while I was there! Walking through the farm animal sanctuary to get there was great, too.

My partner and I had a wonderful stay here! The site feels secluded, with plenty of level room for a good sized tent and space for a hammock. We met one of the hosts (Eric I think?) on the way in and he was very kind and helpful! I loved seeing all the chickens on the way in as well, it made my day! We’ll definitely be back!
