This is a remote camp site within proximity of a private pond. The meadow trail is partly wooded with good visibility during the day, headlamps for non moon filled eves. Mountain bikers will like the trek to camp appeal of this untouched slice of nature. Birds and butterflies abound. Fireflies may be too bright at night. Bullfrogs, fish and waterfowl your only neighbors.

*mosquito spray goes without saying ( I'm assuming this is a theme=Michigan Summers)

This is best suited for bicycle campers, or those willing to walk in (10 min to vehicle, parking area behind Art Barn.)

I think this is my new favorite hipcamp. Amazing grounds, great vibes, with easy access to town. My site was enough of a walk to feel very private, but the facilities were not far. I can’t wait to come back!

Christine was very nice and accommodating. It was going to thunderstorm the night we booked our stay and she offered her waterproof tent! Such a great experience! The property has nice grassy areas, a pond, and lots of cute creatures! It is also only a short drive to downtown Saugatuck. We hope we can stay longer than one night next time! :)

This is a beautiful piece of land not far from the Saugatuck-Douglas area. We had a lovely spot and it was very quiet. There are a lot of interesting things potentially going on at the Art Farm, and Christine's son was very warm, friendly and helpful. It does feel a bit that the camping aspect of the farm is either still underway or a bit under maintained. Hopefully this will improve, as it is a place we would consider visiting again. We did have to ask for a firepit, chairs and some kind of table, which we promptly received. Since we came prepared to, well...camp, we expected that would already be set up at each site. Apparently picnic tables were damaged in a storm and not replaced. Also, my husband stood naked for several minutes at the not-so-nice shower stall in the barn waiting for warm water; I finally asked and learned the water heater was broken. He skipped the shower and we went to the lake, so it was all good, but I do find the $55 rate overpriced given these lacking amenities. Nevertheless, I still give an overall positive review and recommendation. The beauty of the land and spirit of the Art Farm make it worth a visit, and there is much to do and discover in the area. Only about a 15-minute drive to Saugatuck Dunes State Park, one of our very favorite hiking and swimming spots in SW Michigan. The town of Fennville is even closer, which has the acclaimed Salt of the Earth restaurant.

Staying here was very nice. The property is spacious, private, somewhat remote yet conveniently located near a quaint village with organic and vegan food options. The host, Christine is kind, welcoming, and a interesting person. The property was reminiscent of places we had been in Northern California. The frogs sang up to sleep. There were coffee grounds and French presses for morning. The beans were roasted on the property a day or two before. It’s an eccentric and comfortable place. A rare find for primitive campers. It feels like you pitched a tent on the edge of a Sonoma county farm.

What a beautiful spot and fantastic host! Christine welcomed us and gave us a tour of her property. So many lovely and varied spots to choose! We pitched our tents near the ponds and birch trees with views of the sculptures. Very quiet, lots of birds, yet close to Douglas, Saugatuck, and the beach!

A treasure! If you are looking for a welcoming, unique, and funky place next to nature- stay here! Without a doubt a most inspiring place. Christine is exceptional and we had a private meadow with fire pit to camp and freshly roasted coffee in the morning.
