Big Head Farm is a naturally grown fruit and vegetable farm located less than 1 mile east of Lake Michigan in beautiful SW Michigan. We have a very rustic camping area nestled next to our 10 acres of woodlot. Feel free to explore our 52 acre farmstead, visit with our animals or U-pick blueberries in season July through August.

The camping area is about 1 acre of open grass. We have potable water, shared shower/bathroom (in our rustic farmhouse) and a large bonfire pit are available. There is beach lake access about 2 miles drive from the farm. We do have an active rail line that runs along the east border of the farm and trains run every several hours.

Due to laws in the State of Michigan - each camp site is defined as one tent or camper/vehicle. There can be no more than four (4) of any combination of tents/campers/RV's on the property at a single point in time or we may be cited and fined by the State of Michigan for being an unlicensed campground.

The farm was so idyllic. Getting here was pretty easy. The campgrounds were well-kept with plenty of space in between the campsites. The farmhouse was close by as well as her beautiful animals! Night time was peaceful aside from the soft sound of a train in the distance. We made eggs in the morning with farm fresh selections and enjoyed the nearby parks since they were less than 30 minutes away. Our only regret was that we didn’t come sooner for blueberry picking! We stayed in the first weekend of September. We would love to come a little earlier next time. Thanks Karen for being a great host!

We had a great time on the farm! Other camp sites were much closer than expected and we didn’t get to try the farm fresh eggs. Other than that, we had an amazing experience and would totally recommend to a friend.

Large open and quiet campground with some really friendly farm animals that you can pet. A picnic table and fire pit was available which we cooked over. We had a great time and would recommend staying.

Karen's gorgeous farm was our first Hip Camp experience and was absolutely amazing. The property is large enough to feel spacious and explore, but small to feel cozy, safe and convenient. Our campsite was perfectly maintained, complete with fire pit and picnic table. It's a short drive to Warren Dunes for a fun day at the beach, but nestled in beautiful blueberry fields and a forest so it's quiet and peaceful. Karen is a lovely, gracious and attentive host -- making sure we had all the necessary info and made coffee in the morning! My personal favorite is the animals on the farm. Cherry Pie the donkey is the sweetest thing (I now desperately want a donkey someday haha), a gorgeous variety of chickens, ducks and geese, two handsome goats and one cute little pony! Highly recommend for a lovely weekend getaway! Thanks so much, Karen!

It was really wonderful to wake up with the animals! The misty blueberry fields were beautiful. Everything was perfect. Please note: You will be enjoying the low whistle of passing trains often. We will stay over again.

Big Head Farms was awesome. We were looking for a spot more removed from the standard cramped campgrounds and this place totally came through. You can opt to stay close to the main house and be closer to others or you can head towards the back of the property and have a lot of privacy. The blueberry bushes are beautiful and there are lots of animals - goats, chickens, a mini horse, etc.. by the main house. Karen, the owner, could not be more welcoming and relaxed. This place is low-key and such a welcomed reset. Definitely will be going back!

We had a wonderful time at big head farm! Karyn was a great host, very friendly and helpful. Our campsite was spacious, clean and had a great fire pit. The animals were one of the best parts. Very friendly and entertaining to watch! Already planning a return trip!

Great location, large open camp site but plenty space if there are other campers, good mix of berries and animals, well stocked woodpile and farmers market on the property and great sunrise and sunsets. Nice to have a campers only toilet and shower. Karen is a very welcoming host. You can just hang out or get onto Lake Michigan in 10 minutes. Definitely worth a visit
