2024 total eclipse

Primitive camping
Best for self-contained campers. There are no toilets, showers, or potable water at this Hipcamp.
Welcome to our land, our little slice of heaven, and a place of peace. My kids and I, with the help of the Creator, built this property how it stands today. It started as a tiny house journey through The Garden of Emunah (faith) and has turned into a life-changing  adventure. We moved onto the property with nothing but a power pole and a goal to farm the way the Creator designed and instructed. Since then we have come a long way by building houses, fences, and creating a life beyond the norm. Come join us in our adventure, sit by the fire, meet our friendly livestock, and tell us your story. We look forward to sharing Shabbat or any of the Jewish Holidays with your family. Learn more about this land: Pitch your tent in the cedar or under live oak in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Our remote farm is an hour from the nearest gas station or store down a 4.8 mile dirt road. If your car bottoms out on speed bumps, please DO NOT Book. The livestock is petting zoo friendly and have free range of the entire farm. Prepared to be visited by sheep, goats, cows, dogs, and chickens.

Daniel is fantastic!
If you enjoy roughing it, this is for you. Rugged and primitive. The only "luxury" you get is a makeshift fire pit. And Daniel kindly provides a rather large bucket of firewood. I failed to to do my homework and didn't know how rugged it was. I was only there to get pictures of the eclipse. My sports car wouldn't make it. Daniel and his son came out in his truck to get us, loaded up our gear, and drove us to our campsite. He didn't seem bothered one bit. The next morning, he brought us some corn for the many animals he has in a pen because my fiance said she wanted to see them. When we were done, we once again got to load or stuff in his truck and hitch a ride back to our car. Everything about the campsite was great. But the extra hospitality really put it over the top! I'd rate more stars if I could!

Very unique location. Perfect piece of land for some old-fashioned camping! Really enjoyed our time out in nature.

Remote, rough and rustic
The host was friendly and talkative, and gave us a couple of books to read. The goats and other farm animals that passed through our campsite were enjoyable to watch. However, the camping areas did not appear to have received maintenance in quite a while. The roads to the campsites were quite narrow from the cedars having grown into them, and tall grass surrounded and even had grown into some of the fire pits making it unsafe for a campfire. Every camp spot the host showed me other than the large group site was a tight fit. All sites were overgrown with grass from last summer. One spot could not even be reached without driving over a pile of brush and limbs. There were no tables or trash receptacles as advertised, nor were there actual walking trails, other than some cleared area along the perimeter fence. If you are looking for a rough and rustic place to camp, have a vehicle with plenty of ground clearance and do not mind squeezing between tree limbs that will rub down the sides of your vehicle then this place might be for you. It looks little like the pictures. If you have a larger RV type of vehicle then the private roads to the farm and certainly the road to the camping area through a couple of seasonal creek beds might not be for you. The large camping area is a good spot for star gazing and is quiet. Some tree trimming along the interior roads and weed eating around the designated fire pits would make this a much more enjoyable location.

Great stay
Took my college friends out to go camping at Shoshanna Shalom for our winter break and it was great. Highly recommend this location. Getting to stay in a sanctuary with cows, goats, and sheep was a great experience. Being able to buy firewood instead of needing to bring it was also great for us because we came during a chilly time of year. Hot in the day, cold at night. The only negative of the trip was that the last mile or so of the road is a bumpy drive especially at night or after rain. I’d recommend driving a bigger or taller car like an SUV or truck.

Adventurous last mile or so when getting in, but site is all you could wish for. Daniel's a gentleman and will let you come and meet the animals. My kids loved it. Be sure you have good tires.
