We are a 107-acre forest and farm animal rescue. Sleep with the sheep, alpacas, donkeys, potbellied pigs, and rabbits when you pitch your tent or park your camper on our Vermont Farm! Reserve the group site and sleep in the middle of the action! (You do not need a "group" to reserve the group site -- it is just our biggest site and can accommodate groups!). Co-located in the open, grassy area with the free-roaming farm rescues is our RV site. Co-located sites share a community fire ring, so it's a great way to meet and make new friends! Don't have a tent or RV? Spend a magical night in "The Greenhouse" (it's a real, working greenhouse that doubles as accommodations for those looking for a more "glamping" experience). Want a little privacy? Reserve one of our two tricked-out Tent Deck sites (Buddha North and Grandmother Pine), each with its own picnic table, private fire ring, and commercial-grade park grill. Nestled discretely in the forest adjacent to the area where the animals are, you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere even though you are less than a 5-minute walk from your car! Looking for something a bit more remote and spectacular? Hike a half-mile to the Big Sky Tent Deck. An incredible vista awaits you for a little effort! Need gear? We have it for rent, from cast iron grill baskets and griddles to make cooking over a charcoal grill or fire a breeze to tents to 1- and 2- burner propane stoves to tarps to water containers. We even have an Anker Portable Power Station and Portable Kerosene Heater for rent! Need Supplies? Charcoal? Propane? We've got it. ----- We are a small non-profit (501c3). When you stay with us, rent equipment from us, or take a tour with us, 100% of the money you pay goes directly for the care and feeding of the rescue animals. Thanks for supporting us in making a difference in the lives of neglected, abused, and abandoned farm animals! ----- CAMP FOR FREE WEEKEND SEPT 20-21 2024 Come for the weekend and make a difference in the lives of Rescues. Spend the weekend helping us prep for Winter, maintaining and building fencing, planting daffodils, clearing brush, pitchforking manure (important and necessary work), hoof trimming, painting, and everything in between. Watch the sunset from the Big Sky Tent Deck on the Equinox. Sit around campfires with new friends. Eat great food -- we'll make you dinner each evening! Just (1) message us that you are interested and (2) sign up on the event page on our Facebook profile. ----- CHECK-IN TIME: 3:00 p.m.—7:00 p.m. Please arrive within this time window. If absolutely necessary, you may purchase a check-in extension for $15 in advance or $30 on arrival.

My partner and I stayed here for two nights. The farm is beautiful and the animals are so well cared for. Scott was a fantastic host! Highly recommend, we’ll be back.

Grandmother Pine Tent Deck
First time camping success
We decided on Scott’s farm on a whim and didn’t know what to expect with the farm itself let alone first time camping. Scott was a very good host with a very free spirit. As stated we were first time campers so we slightly overpacked for the walk that we needed to complete to our site. Any other site that was further I would have packed it up right at the start and went home so if you do camp here be ready to walk with your stuff a little distance! But over all we felt secure, secluded, free and at peace. The farm animals were all so friendly and our favorites by far were the donkeys and pigs! There was a lot within driving distance of the farm but also so much land on the farm itself with tons of firewood and places to kick back and hangout. Thankful for bug spray and fires to keep the bugs away cause they did get a little intense at night! But we did enjoy our stay at the camp site it’s definitely more of an experienced camper site but can’t really complain!

Thoreau Stream Tent Site
Loved camping with the animals
Awesome property, being around all the farm animals was amazing! Like others said, the site itself isn't flat, but it wasn't an issue for one person. Scott and everyone was super friendly with lots of great suggestions about the area!

Big Sky Tent Deck
This place is delightful and whimsical. The animals are ridiculous and the location is peak Vermont. My only advice is that the Big Sky tent site is VERY far away, up a steep hill, so it’s good for backpackers but not car campers with heavy gear. Luckily Scott let me stay at a more convenient spot so I didn’t have to schlep all my gear up there!

We loved camping with the animals at the RV site. Scott was a wonderful and gracious host. We enjoyed the scavenger hunt and hiking trails on this beautiful and serene property. We greatly appreciate Scott’s hospitality and look forward to visiting Willhouby Animal Rescue again.
