Our property sprawls across acres of rolling hills and postcard vistas. The farm and tasting room are the upstate outposts of Philadelphia's Second District Brewing. Each weekend during the summer, the tasting room is open to the public with a rotating draft selection and food menu - most of it sourced directly on the farm . We offer a number of leave-no-trace campsites for a truly unique remote getaway. *All campsites and the Bungalow are walk-in sites. We are available to shuttle in your gear after you check in* Safety Guidelines: 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Emergency Procedures In addition to 911, the nearest hospital is Wayne County Memorial Hospital with a 24 hour Emergency Room located at 601 Park St. Honesdale, PA 18431 | (570) 253-8100 ⚡ Minimize hazards Wear appropriate clothing. Use Sunscreen & Insect Repellent. Maintain a clean camp site. Dispose of garbage, recycling, and compost responsibly. Trash, recyclables and compost should be taken to main barn and disposed of accordingly. Please compost all left over food items. 📢 Please respect other campers. Quiet Hours 11:00pm to 8:00am. 🐕 We love when Hipcampers are allowed to bring their pets, but it’s important to understand that you must keep your pets in your control, keep them from causing harm, and ensure they’re reasonably quiet during quiet hours. Wild Animal - Safety Warnings All it takes is one wrong move in the woods and you could have an unwanted guest at your campsite. Here’s a list of 10 things you can do to keep your family camping trip safe and secure from potentially dangerous animals. 1. Eliminate odors from food and supplies Black bears roam all over the Pocono Mountains with a population of more than 18,000 in the Poconos alone, making them a common concern amongst campers. It’s not only trash that will attract a bear; toiletry items such as toothpaste, soap, lotions, deodorant or bug sprays (especially citronella) should be secured from bears as well. To keep your food, supplies and gear away from bears, there are several different ways to keep them out of a bears reach. You could keep them in a hard-sided vehicle, a certified food storage container, or put it all in a bag and hang it between two trees at least 10 feet from the ground. 2. Stop by the store and grab the basics Stock up your packs with flashlights and bear spray to keep in the tent at night. Flashlights can always be useful to help find things and point you in the right direction when walking at night. The bear spray, on the other hand, is a purchase that you most likely and hopefully will never use but is something worth having for that extra piece of mind when you hear rustling in the woods. 3. Get loud! It might seem strange, but being loud will keep many of the furry creatures out of sight. With that said, if you have close-by neighbors, don’t cause a full out ruckus. The sounds of the campfire crackling, voices, and other man-made sounds like car engines usually do the trick in scaring off wildlife. 4. Keep pets on leash… always As much as you may love and trust your pets to stay close by, it’s not worth the risk of letting them roam off on their own. An alternative to always holding the other end of the leash is buying a spiral stake to put in the ground to keep the pup close by while granting him or her a little freedom to roam. Keep in mind Birds of Prey are all around. You may even spot a bald eagle or two during your stay. Keep in mind these majestic birds of prey won’t think twice about snatching your small dog. 5. Be ready for the non-furry threats When it comes to snakes, be particularly careful if you move logs or brush as most snakes get to moving when their environment is tampered with. If snakes are a high concern of yours in a particular area, consider wearing sturdy boots and gloves when moving such things. 6. Keep your distance Most animals will scare off easily from a far distance. However, in the instance of getting a bit too close to a bear or other animal, you should brush up on what to do in the event that you are in a face-to-face situation. While these circumstances are extraordinarily rare, it is better to be prepared than to make a wrong move. 7. Wear different clothes cooking and to bed Have you ever gone to a restaurant and can distinctly smell the food even hours after you’ve left? The same happens in the wilderness. Cooking smells cling to fabric and can attract bears, making the clothes you wore while making dinner not the best pajamas. Store your “cooking clothes” in an airtight bag or container to reduce the risk of any wildlife catching a whiff. 8. Keep it clean Your campsite, that is. Continuously making an effort to scrub pots and pans and picking up trash throughout the day’s adventures will work wonders in making it less of a task to keep your site pest free. 9. Consider a bear proof cooler, especially for car camping Definitely not necessary, but it is a precaution that might be suitable for some. If your cooler is on its last leg and you are looking for an upgrade, there are always certified bear tested coolers that are sure to keep your food and beverages cold and the bears locked out. 10. Know the area you are in One of the sharpest tools you can have up against wildlife is knowledge and familiarity with the woods you will be setting up camp in. For information on the wildlife in the area, you can seek out tips from the local park ranger or wildlife official. Getting outdoors for a camping adventure is an enjoyable, freeing experience that is almost never dangerous, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to be prepared in the event of an unlikely guest. Staying safe from poisonous plants while camping just got easier! Poison ivy and poison oak, spread across most of North America, can ruin a perfectly good camping trip. These dangerous plants can be found almost anywhere when camping, whether in open fields, wooded areas, roadsides, or riverbanks. Poison oak and poison ivy trigger an itchy rash on contact. Worse, if the leaves get into a campfire , the same chemical can get into your lungs, causing extreme pain which may require medical attention. Campground owners and operators should always be conscious of their campers’ safety. Though most experienced campers can recognize poison oak and poison ivy and avoid accidental contact, a novice might rely only on posted warnings near the plants. Our Poison Ivy and Poison Oak Warning Signs provide clear and concise warnings for campers, helping them have a safe and stress-free camping experience. Prevent Lyme Disease Before gardening, camping, hiking, or just playing outdoors, make preventing tick bites part of your plans. Lyme disease is spread by the bite of an infected tick. In the United States, an estimated 476,000 infections are diagnosed and treated each year. If you camp, hike, work, or play in wooded or grassy places, you could be bitten by an infected tick. People living in or visiting the mid-Atlantic states, and the upper Midwest are at greatest risk. Infected ticks can also be found in neighboring states and in some areas of Northern California, Oregon and Washington. But you and your family can prevent tick bites and reduce your risk of Lyme disease. Protect Yourself from Tick Bites Know where to expect ticks. Blacklegged ticks (the ticks that cause Lyme disease) live in moist and humid environments, particularly in and near wooded or grassy areas. You may get a tick on you during outdoor activities around your home or when walking through leaves and bushes. To avoid ticks, walk in the center of trails and avoid walking through tall bushes or other vegetation. Repel ticks on skin and clothing. Use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellents containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus, para-menthane-diol, or 2-undecanone. EPA’s helpful search tool can help you find the product that best suits your needs. Always follow product instructions. Parents should apply this product to their children, avoiding hands, eyes, and mouth. Use products that contain permethrin on clothing. Treat clothing and gear, such as boots, pants, socks and tents with products containing 0.5% permethrin. It remains protective through several washings. Pre-treated clothing is available and may be protective longer. • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has an online tool to help you select the repellent that is best for you and your family. • For detailed information about preventing ticks on pets and in your yard, see Lyme Disease Prevention and Control. • For detailed information for outdoor workers, see NIOSH Safety and Health Topic: Tick-borne Diseases. Perform Daily Tick Checks Check your body for ticks after being outdoors, even in your own yard. Search your entire body for ticks when you return from an area that may have ticks. Use a hand-held or full-length mirror to view all parts of your body and remove any tick you find. Take special care to check these parts of your body and your child’s body for ticks: • Under the arms • In and around the ears • Inside the belly button • Back of the knees • In and around all head and body hair • Between the legs • Around the waist Check your clothing and pets for ticks because they may carry ticks into the house. Check clothes and pets carefully and remove any ticks that are found. Place clothes into a dryer on high heat to kill ticks. Remove Attached Ticks Quickly and Correctly Remove an attached tick with fine-tipped tweezers as soon as you notice it. If a tick is attached to your skin for less than 24 hours, your chance of getting Lyme disease is extremely small; however, other diseases may be transmitted more quickly. Over the next few weeks, watch for signs or symptoms of Lyme disease such as rash or fever. See a healthcare provider if you have signs or symptoms. For more information, see tick removal. Be Alert for Fever or Rash Even if you don’t remember being bitten by a tick, an unexpected summer fever or odd rash may be the first signs of Lyme disease, particularly if you’ve been in tick habitat. See your healthcare provider if you have symptoms. Prevent Ticks on Animals Prevent family pets from bringing ticks into the home by limiting their access to tick-infested areas and by using veterinarian-prescribed tick prevention products on your dog. Create Tick-safe Zones in Your Yard Modify your landscaping to create “Tick-Safe Zones.” It’s pretty simple. Keep patios, play areas, and playground equipment away from shrubs, bushes, and other vegetation. Regularly remove leaves, clear tall grasses and brush around your home, and place wood chips or gravel between lawns and wooded areas to keep ticks away from recreational areas (and away from you). • Use a chemical control agent. Use acaricides (tick pesticides) to reduce the number of ticks in treated areas of your yard. However, you should not rely on spraying to reduce your risk of infection. • Discourage deer. Deer are the main food source of adult ticks. Keep deer away from your home by removing plants that attract deer and by constructing barriers (like a fence) to discourage deer from entering your yard and bringing ticks with them. Natural Environment Please respect the beautiful natural surroundings you are inhabiting. You will undoubtedly see a numbers of friendly neighbors like Fox, Deer, Wild Turkeys, Beavers, Ducks and maybe even a Bald Eagle or two. We ask that you respect all animals within your site. We hope you have a fun and relaxing visit!

Gorgeous campgrounds. There is a nice brewery with DELICIOUS burgers and great beer on the premises. There is a shady and beautiful grove near the brewery with a hammock and tables. The campsites are spaced out so it is a good place to bring an anxious dog that would bark too much at close neighbors. A great place if you want to be in the midst of greenery. There is a pond and an about mile long path where you can also see chickens and hops. They have cute goats by the showers. There are two nice outdoor showers. Very idyllic. The friendliest staff ever. Shout out to Ron for helping us all weekend and also the great carpenter who showed us around and has made the place look so great. A few things to note: The brewery flush toilets are open during the day only and are a ~10 minute walk from some campsites. At night there are portapotties and paths are not lit. This the second year of establishing camping and there is not an established sink for dish washing. Running water is at the brewery and at the shower. The shower was about a 15 minute walk from our campsite. No cars are allowed to drive to the campsites, though Ron came by with a tractor to drive our things in and out, just be prepared for an about 15 minute wait since he's taking care of everyone. It's good to plan for these in return for the idyllic scenery and peacefulness.

My new favorite campsite
I cannot praise this campsite highly enough! So beautiful, & the perfect balance of privacy (sites are far apart) & convenience (they'll take your gear to your site). +You can walk over to the tasting room 5-10 min away or hang out w others in the gathering area down the hill which has twinkly lights, picnic benches, & a hammock. There are 2 outdoor showers which are always available & offer hot water. If you peek into the barn next door, you'll see 4 of the sweetest donkeys inside. It's a little bit of a walk to the showers, but that made it ideal for me since what I wanted was lots of space & privacy. All of the staff were amazing including the tasting room staff & Ron who helped w everything I needed re the site. Everyone was so friendly & kind going above & beyond to make things wonderful for me. They even dealt kindly w other campers who were truly awful. You gotta try all the different beers that they produce & the cheeses they age in the cheese cave underneath the tasting room. This foodie & beer connoisseur was swooning. If you want a typical crowded campground where you're on top of everyone else & everything is 100 ft from you, then this is not the place for you. If you want more space & privacy, then this place is ideal! I wanted to keep this all to myself since it's a gem, but because it is so amazing, I've found myself telling everyone about it. If you're considering booking, don't hesitate. It's freakin fantastic & I feel so lucky I stumbled on it.

Awesome! Loved how we could have a private camping area with enough proximity to other groups for socializing. The tractor ride to the campsite was an absolute LIFESAVER- with the heat and the amount of equipment needed for camping (tents bedding and personal essentials, at the very least), it saved us so much time and energy. We’ll be back!

Memorial Day Weekend @ Brew Farm
Our group of four couldn't have been more impressed by the Second District Brew Farm during our Memorial Day weekend trip. The property is gorgeous, and the hospitality from our hosts was second to none. Sarah and Ron went out of their way to make sure we felt welcome and had a great time. The Tasting Room beer and food was excellent, and they've made it a great place to hang out with picnic tables, umbrellas, cornhole, horse shoes, and other games. The most important thing to know for future visitors is that you are not able to drive to your campsite and park your car there. Instead, you park at the tasting room and check in there. Then, you wait (we had a beer and played cornhole) until someone in a Gator comes by to load up your gear and take you to your site. While we were a little confused at first, we ended up really appreciating this system because we felt very secluded, and we got to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature without any cars around. As far as facilities go, there are a couple porta potties spaced about the sites, and a flush toilet at the Tasting Room. There are also two outdoor shower stalls (with hot water!) attached to barn near the campsites. Our site itself (#2) was quite large, with a Woodline on one side and an old rock wall and some larger trees on the other, giving us plenty of shade. A picnic table and a fire ring were provided, and firewood was very easily to collect nearby. All of us had a wonderful time and can't wait to return!

Camping with beer? Yes, please!
We loved it and had a nice experience, however in recommending it to friends it would have caveats. You can't drive into the sites which is great noise/traffic-wise but it does mean you have to wait for the one guy (Ron, who was wonderfully friendly and helpful, and appears to need a few more people to help him out to keep it running efficiently) to pick you and your gear up and drive it to your site. This is again true on check out day. The showers are a hike. We didn't mind but I would tell people. On the plus side, the showers have hot water and are large and outdoors. Perfect for after a long day's hike! As for potable water, not sure where we would have gotten more water if we had needed it. We brought a large jug and didn't need to refill. Again, something I would tell friends. I suspect you would just ask for a lift to the water and back. The sites are beautiful and private. This is the biggest plus to this place, in my opinion. You can barely see the next people even if you can hear them. The port-a-johns were clean (brand new). The donkeys were supersweet. The people at the bar were nice. The poutine was yummy. The views were lovely. The communal grove with tables and chairs was peaceful. We got firewood delivered to our site. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and the beer was great!

Is this camping or glamping?
I had a wonderful time at the Second district brew farm camp site. The place is beautiful, spacious and well-maintained. But what really made my stay memorable was the help staff. Everyplace has is opening day challenges and the staff went above and beyond to make sure everyone was happy. It could have been a mess, but they improvised where needed, with the client’s satisfaction in mind. They were friendly, helpful and professional. They greeted me with a smile, showed me around the facilities, and answered all my questions. They went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed and that I was comfortable and happy. I can't thank them enough for their hospitality and kindness. They are the best help staff I have ever encountered at a camp site. I highly recommend the Second district brew farm to anyone looking for a enjoyable camping experience with great beer and food from your camp site. Specially call outs to: Ron, Jon and Sarah to making our 2 nights great.

Camping on a beer farm!
Everything about our stay was seamless and uncomplicated. The property is beautiful, communication with the hosts was a breeze, and of course, Second District makes really good beer! We were lucky enough to be there during their Hoptoberfest celebration, which was such an added bonus! There's nothing really to complain about, it was calm, quiet, and in a great location.

Camping at a brewery!
If you love beer and enjoy camping, this is the perfect place. Our family doesn't love what many people would consider true camping--we like having running water, bathrooms, and ideally food made for us. :) So it was amazing to find a place like Second District Brew Farm. Nice to get away from the noise of the city while having an indoor place we could hang out and drink good beer!

This was our first Hipcamp booking and it couldn’t have been better! We stayed at Site #1 and really liked the location near the pond. The tasting room was really nice, the staff was very friendly and the outdoor seating was perfect to enjoy trying some of the beer offerings and take in the great views. We ventured into nearby Honesdale for dinner which offered a wide array of options to choose from. After a quick bite to eat we hurried back to catch the sunset and enjoy a final beer. Later at the campsite we made a fire and listed to a pack of coyotes in the distance. We highly recommend the Second District Brew Farm!

The property is expansive with waking trails and places to relax. We would a have a few drinks, watch the sunset and walk back to the campsite and cook over the fire. Really a hidden gem and will definitely be back!

Just wrapping up our second family camping trip at 2nd district brew farm. We loved it so much the first time, we booked the second trip while we were still there camping. The grounds are well taken care of, breathtaking views from the tasting room, and just an all around feel-good vibe. Highly recommend for a family weekend getaway.

Outstanding experience! The whole staff, both property-specific and taproom, were so kind and welcoming. Setting is idyllic, every few steps provides an inspiring view. Site 1 provides the most privacy and is essentially a nice little forested room. A bit sloped, though. Sites 2&3 have nice views of the hill/field leading up to the taproom and also seemed to be more level. You can’t go wrong with any of them! Can’t wait to go back!

Good times
We had a great time camping at Second District with our dog. The beer is great and the views are beautiful. Our pup loved exploring the property. The staff are very friendly. Sarah and Ron were very accommodating when we arrived and we noticed that our site (#3) had poison ivy growing around it and under the picnic table / tent area. They allowed us to move to site #2, no problem. Having a real bathroom to use was a real plus, as well. We would definitely return, but likely we would choose site #1--it's more private and closer to the pond (a pretty scene).

Lovely stay!
The stay was great at the brewery! Me and my husband together with our dog stayed for one night and had a great time. The campsite was private enough to have some space but still felt comfortable with neighbor sites. It was a short walk up a hill to the restroom which was clean. We enjoyed a few beers and cheese plate at the brewery. They had a good atmosphere with lawn games and hammocks. Looking forward to going back again!

Camping AND a brewery!? Yup.
We stayed at campsite #1 and it was awesome!! This site is a bit more secluded/out of view from the brewery up the hill, which worked well for an anxious pup. Comfortably fit 3tents, 4ppl, and 2dogs - and plenty of space to keep dogs (or people) separated if needed. The small cabin on site is cute, but definitely messy. It’s not advertised for actual use, and you probably wouldn't want to stay in it, but could be a good temporary shelter from bad weather. There’s a bathroom and outdoor shower for campers at the back of the brewery, and it’s perfect for water refills. The property is lovely, the beers delicious, and their indoor/outdoor taproom space was great. 12/10 would definitely come back to camp again!

Such a great campsite. The grounds are gorgeous and although we didn’t take advantage of the tasting barn, it looked like a really cool spot. I’ve camped all over the country and site one was a gem of a site - very well maintained, enclosed in trees, beautiful scenery and a pathway right to pond where we took a dip. The bathroom was about 200+ yards away and it was really clean. Hosts were super helpful. If you are pondering this campsite, go!

Great Piece of Land
What a great piece of land. The camp site was secluded from the public and was just right for a small group. Really easy to come and go as needed, but nice to know there was the barn right up the hill. Outdoor shower was really convenient too. Would absolutely recommend this place, and would stay here again when I'm up this way
