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!

Hidden Gem
This Hipcamp should be on everyone鈥檚 list. Christy is the most gracious host and has created a magical space. From the woods, to the maze, to the scavenger hunt the whole stay was wonderful. We left feeling refreshed and have already started checking our calendar for when we can go back.

Great camping
We absolutely loved camping here. We had a great spot against the woods with big trees for hammocks. The host asked if my kids wanted to hide some Halloween decor in a trail for the Halloween party. They were so excited and she showed us around the trails and some pretty awesome spots for hammocks in the woods! My kids loved looking at rocks in the creek and going on a nighttime hike. It was so peaceful and quiet. Nice host, great spot. We plan to come another time this fall.

Green grass and trails, OH my!
Enjoyed the new take on a camp ground! The grass was green and wasn't worn out. The trails throughout the property were fun to explore.
