(Please contact me through hipcamp for me to change the perimeters for your booking. Site #2 This site is on the opposite side of the pond, and is similar to the site 1, the access to this location along a dirt road and is therefore more accessible by a vehicle that does not have all wheel or 4 wheel drive. These sites are visible to each other but are far enough away to give privacy. This site can hold three tents comfortably. Site 1 a and b and 2 may be booked together for either large groups or for just more seclusion. If a large group books both these sites and you want access we shall accommodate you by mowing a pathway to make each campsite accessible to each other. Site #3 This site is remote and is only accessible by all wheel or 4 wheel drive when the weather has been wet. This site is very secluded in a meadow surrounded by woods on all sides, pathways are mowed for your use for a quick walk to the barn and also the pond.

Horse and Animal Petting Farm
This is our second time staying at Mary’s land. This time we came with my pets and they loved it. We had a lot of fun and had time to relax and get away from the city. We will definitely come back next year!

Best camping spot ever on lake!
We absolutely love this place and Mary! We come at least once a year and wish we could come more often. It’s really awesome to be able to see all the animals and even go inside to pet them. There always seems to be animals having babies when we come. Last time it was a baby goat born the night before we got here and this time her dog had a bunch of puppies that marie brought out that we could play with. The camping down by the lake is perfect with free boats and fishing poles. And riding the horse and the horse cart is awesome and is only $30 for an hour. Just make sure you drive slowly up the driveway to the house so you don’t hit any of her dogs!

Lake Side Camping- Horseback Riding
What am experience to have on that wonderful farm. It was my second time here with my family and we have an amazing time at the lake site. We stayed there for 4 days with the most perfect weather. Mary and her staff were very nice (As always) and welcoming. We have fresh eggs to make for breakfast. Fresh cow milk was also available. We have fun with the horseback riding and the kids loves the miniature horse and carriage rides. We will be back for another long week soon. Thanks Mary
