Recent Hipcampers say this Hipcamp is great for families and kids.
Grins & Pickin's CampFarm was created to share the outdoors with others. Growing food & flowers, camping & hiking is what we like to do. And we like sharing these activities with others. Our family oriented outdoor recreation facility is open on weekends only and offers primitive camping, PYO produce during the growing season, homesteading activities & nature-based programs. The peaceful 20-acre country farm has food gardens, a frog habitat pool, a barnyard for the chickens & ducks, a bluegill fishin' pond, a pollinator maze, a prairie garden, and an outdoor stage. After crossing a winding creek into 10 acres of woods, you may see deer, turkey, fox, coyote, mink, eagles & barred owls. In early spring, the peepers are peeping, wildflowers are abundant & the vernal pools welcome the wood frogs, salamanders and fairy shrimp. Summer brings on the bullfrogs, butterflies, dragonflies and fireflys. Fall is a great time to pull grapevine to make wreaths & to build stick forts in the woods. We cater to the tent camper so that we can hear frogs & owls instead of generators. But, there is an RV section up front for those with quiet generators with several feet of gravel under the grass to hold the weight of your camper. We charge by the carload & there are different rates for driving back toward the woods for camping depending on the number of wheels & the weight of your vehicle (a factor on the wear & tear on the land). We believe in going outside to play, growing & eating fresh food, strengthening family bonds and promoting the awareness of our natural resources. PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING: 1) The speed limit is 5 mph as soon as you enter the property (kids & dogs are quick to dart in front of you). 2) As a state registered campground, it is mandatory that you check in at the house to fill out a Registration Form before heading to your campsite. 3) No glass allowed anywhere on the property (we don't want our feet or paws cut open and can do without flat tires). 4) Children under 18 must be attended to at all times for their safety (the frog pool is 10' deep, the pond is 8-10' deep depending on rains, and the creek can turn into a churning river). Thank you!

Super friendly and helpful. I booked last minute the day of and didn't realize it was her last day of the season. She pointed out the best spots and let me know what to expect.

Great camping!
This was my first solo camping trip and though it was cold and somewhat rainy, it was definitely a positive experience. Christy is thoughtful and attentive, though not so much so that she intrudes upon your camping experience. She made chili to share with the guests on the night I first arrived and left me a fire pit to keep me warm as I packed up before leaving. The campgrounds are very nice and spacious and there is a ton of nice land to walk through during your stay. I would definitely stay again if I’m ever back in the area!

Very nice space with lots of wildflowers and cute, grassy walking paths. We tent camped and enjoyed the off-season (October) solitude. We liked the picnic table and fire pit. The wood we purchased from Christy was dry and burned beautifully. The trees were small where we camped, but we did not need the shade!
