Our little hobby farm was procured in December 2021. While we're just getting started our new home, we hope you'll enjoy sharing the orchard, meadows, forest, and swimming pond with us. "Roads go ever ever on, under cloud and under star. Yet feet that wandering have gone turn at last to home afar." Learn more about this land: Come relax atop the Appalachian foothills of southern Ohio. Enveloped in the heart of Tranquility Wilderness Area, our 11 acres has a mix of native pawpaw, peach, pear, and persimmon trees, deciduous forest, cedar woods, wild meadows, a small swimming pond, and a large, accessible field for ample flat for tents and room to play. Trails through the woods are being worked on, and facilities expanded as the seasons pass. Mellow nature’s soundtrack of birds, crickets, and frogs and enjoy an incredibly clear view of the night sky. Hiking, kayaking, biking, birding, fishing, hunting, swimming, and more are available at several state parks and historical sites like within 10-30 minutes of the farm. Amish country is likewise near at hand with several bakeries, markets, furniture shops, and greenhouses. Our primitive sites are spaced for privacy, with a gravel parking area near the cottage and additional field parking is available near the road on the opposite site of the main house. While most sites are walk-in only, the upper field sites may be able to be parked near and the Lower Meadow, Boneyard, and Oak Grove may be able to be driven to, as weather and site conditions permit.

The cottage
Great location, hosts, and vibes!
Hi HipCamp Fam, this place is a beauty! We have been eyeing this location for a while and when we decided to go to the Serpent Mound this was in the area so it was a match made in heaven 🥹 I really liked going there in the winter months because we had the land pretty much to ourselves which is great for us since we have our 2 fur babies who ran until the stars came out! The hosts house is right next door but Jonah and Basil are fantastic hosts; they have the basics you need in the cabin and they are no bother plus they have cute dogs, too. So, it didn’t bother us one bit that their house was next door 😇 oh and the views there are gorgeous, you have an excellent view of the stars at night. Honestly can’t wait to go back during the summer equinox! Lastly, don’t forget to check out the Serpent Mound then stop by local fountain of youth. Such a cool experience. Side note: there is this donut place like 15 minutes away with the best donuts I have ever had with great customer service, it’s called BEEKAYs and it is a must! You’ll be dreaming about those donuts 🍩

Site 3: The Back Pocket
Way out there in the back woods!
Basil's property, Home Afarm, is exactly as advertised. The tent sites are clean and really varied. The ones in the Oak grove are super private and shady and very close to the swimming pond. The site called the "Back Pocket" is at the very crest of a ridge, and faces east, so it gets full early morning sunlight, vampires be advised. I'm looking forward to staying there again, next time with more time to invest in actual camping, not just sightseeing. The camp hosts are very pleasant, civilized and fun to talk to! Although the hot shower was officially shut down for the season, they took the time to temporarily set it up for us, which was really considerate of them.

Good get away
Overall a great experience. Loved the nature and the owners were great! Only downside was that the curtains in the cabin were pretty sheer. Any other weekend probably not a big deal but it was our anniversary weekend and the cabin was closer to the house so, not as much privacy as was hoping for. On the balance though, it was a nice get away for us as well as our two dogs and we will happily return. Just maybe not for a romantic getaway.

Camper camp
Great value, great area
Had an excellent stay at Camper Camp. Had a nice flat and private spot to park. Being back from any main roads made for quiet evenings, but still close enough base camp to adventure around the Adams Co area. Basil got us set up with a new fire pit but the weather had other plans. We were able to connect to the wifi though and enjoyed a rainy night movie in the camper. Camp shower on site was most excellent! Instant hot water and plenty of room to clean up. This site is great value and we will definitely be back.

Site 4: Upper Field
Nice area. Host easy to reach and informative. Had a hard time finding the campsite at night. Shower is an outdoor shower. Toilet is outhouse without running water.
