Campsite Amenities: The campsite has a gravel enclosed fire ring, picnic table, charcoal grill, composting toilet (with toilet paper), and solar outdoor shower (available upon request).
Parking: If you have a vehicle that can drive on the grass (our all-terrain Prius does well), you're welcome to park next to your campsite. Otherwise, you can park by the road and walk a few minutes (about 1/4 mile) to your site.
Local Attractions: The Farm - You can arrange a group walking farm tour. The tour will include information about organic integrative pest management, our solar powered chicken coop, the greenhouse, tiny house construction, the farm's history, and much more. Catoctin Scenic Route - We are located on the scenic route. This is a drivable route (and popular among cyclists!) with many scenic views, including our farm! Hiking- We are about 1 mile from an Appalachian Trail access point (on the same road) with ample parking. Greenbrier State Park has wonderful hiking, lake and a sandy beach. Annapolis Rock & Black Rock Cliff Trailhead has amazing views. Thurston Griggs Trail connects to Annapolis Rock and is about a 1-2 hour hike, depending on your pace. South Mountain State Park has well maintained hiking trails. Gambrill State Park has 16 miles of hiking. The list goes on! Horseback riding - there are local farms that provide lessons.
Small Town Life: Smithsburg is the closes town (about 7 mins drive). Here you can pick up pizza, visit Veterans Park and the local library, and have a drink at the local dive bar.
Small City Life: Downtown Frederick has a small town feel wrapped in an urban environment. It's cute and quaint. Visit Carol Creek for an urban park walk where you can stop for ice cream or a glass of wine. Frederick also has a plethora of craft breweries to choose from. There's a pub crawl tour to explore if you're interested. There are many restaurants to choose from as well.
Supplies: The closest convenience store is Harne's and is a 3 min drive. The closest grocery store is Martin's Food in Smithsburg (8 min drive).

A great experience!
We had an amazing time at Mother Earth! The property was beautiful and the campsite was well stocked with plenty of firewood and water. One of the hosts (Adrian) even drove down with more wood for us when we ran out which was very kind and MUCH appreciated. We brought our dog and there was just enough space for him to run around without worrying about him wandering off. The picnic table and fire pit were really nice. The outhouse was clean. In the morning we saw some cows grazing in the field across the pond which was so cool. Overall an awesome experience and we will definitely be returning next year when it’s warmer!
Excellent spot! great amenities!
My husband and I stayed 4 nights at this site and couldnt be happier! Theres a private shower set up, a very clean toilet setup, hand washing station, excellent firepit, and great secluded views. We came for dayhiking and we were not disappointed. 1.5 miles from AT trail parking and a 35 minute drive from Weaverton Cliffs. Very fast responses from our hosts when we had any questions. This is our first hipcamp experience and they set the bar very high! We will be coming back to this spot again!
This was a great site for our group camping. Mehra and her family were great hosts; we loved the farm tour and the fresh bread. The kids enjoyed exploring along the creek and seeing the animals. Would be glad to stay again.
My favorite hipcamp
It was my second time visiting Mother Earth Organic Farm. The cleanness, maintenance of the ground, and the privacy in a w grassy area in the farm makes this place my favorite Hipcamp! I plan on going back again and again.
Gorgeous campsite and farmstay!
Our stay was honestly so great. Mehra and her family were fantastic hosts. The land was so beautiful and we felt welcome, safe, and relaxed. We got the farm fresh eggs and the telescope - both of which were so worth it. Our campsite was right next to some cute cows which was an added bonus. Would totally stay here again. Recommend 10/10
Private getaway in pretty fields.
Quietand peaceful--and now with even more amenities, like a hand-washing station! Delicious fresh goodies on offer, always a friendly experience. Thanks Mother Earth OF!
Mehra was a wonderful host, welcomed us as we arrived and gave clear instruction to the campsite. She even provided a helpful packet with a map of the farm and nearby attractions. The campsite was great! It was a large open field with a very nice fire pit, picnic table and nearby composting toilet. It was very private and relaxing. We would highly recommend!
