This is a secluded rustic campsite, on a working, non-typical, 40+ acre "farm", in the middle of S.W. Michigan's Wine Country. 

You will be tucked into a hardwood forest overlooking extended wilderness low areas. Your "front yard" will be a nicely mowed meadow. And across the meadow is a wine grape vineyard. Paths and trails in the forest.

There are really quite a few options at this site for either solitary campers, or small groups of friends..... Give us a call if you have questions. We tend to be open to suggestions and possibilities....

Herb & Veggie gardens on-site. Log grown shiitake mushroom area. Wild-crafting opportunities in season. (Wild Leeks / Ramps, Blackberries, Mushrooms, etc. ) Maple syrup making in spring. Active woodworking shop and ongoing projects. Misc. Informational workshops occasionally. Grape U-Pick in September-October.

Lot's of surrounding country roads for biking or touring. Multiple Tasting Rooms and Wineries within a 3 mile radius. Farm Stands and Orchards galore near by.  Lake Michigan beaches and hiking 7 miles away. Antique Shop next door within walking distance. A range of dining experiences within a few miles. Lot's of attractions to explore..... or not....

 And since I live here with a cat and no adult supervision, there's no telling what kind of project you may find me engaged in. Generally whatever seems interesting to me at the time..... And of course, you are invited to check it out, observe, ask questions, or join in if you wish, as time and circumstances allow of course.... 

Or if you simply wish to enjoy your solitude, we have that too.... Sit, meditate, watch the wildlife, wander the forest, write, catch fireflies, chat with friends..... The campsite is well away from most activities and affords plenty of privacy.....

It's really quite up to you.... All we ask is that you Enjoy.....

We had a wonderful time camping here with our two small children. The site was very well cared for, there was plenty of room for our large tent, and the provided firewood was the perfect amount for a reasonable fire each night. There was a great little trail around the property that was nice for meandering. John also kindly invited us to help ourselves to produce from his garden and grapes to eat during our stay. We look forward to coming again!

We were there for 2 nights and can’t say enough about this property. The campsite is well-equipped and tucked away at the back of the vineyard and on the edge of a woodsy area. John was helpful, fun to talk to, and gave good recommendations for things to do in the area. Our only complaint is that we didn’t have enough time to enjoy it all! Will definitely be back!

If you were lucky enough to find this listing don't hesitate, you could not ask for a better camping experience! This was my 3rd year in a row camping at John's vineyard and that speaks for itself. The land is absolutely beautiful, we saw wild turkeys and a mother deer with her baby. Both of the campsites John offers are private and far enough away from each other that privacy is never an issue. The campsites are in great locations, tucked away at the edge of the woods with so many amenities you wouldn't believe! John is always thinking of how to make your stay more comfortable. We stay at least two nights because there's so much to do in the area... St. Joseph, Fernwood Botanical Gardens, Warren Dunes Grand Mere State Park to name a few. Little coffee shops and Red Coach Donuts. Not to mention his U-Pick grapes are in season right now! Don't miss it!

This site was nice and very quiet. This was the first time I took my dog camping and I couldn’t ask for a better spot. The camp host was super friendly and very knowledgeable of the area. What a great find and cant wait to come back.

This is our favorite Hipcamp! We stayed two years ago and it's only gotten better since. John is a considerate and accommodating host and the site has everything you need and more. We were fortunate to visit during U-Pick time and the Concord grapes straight off the vine were UNREAL. Thanks, John!

John's veg and herb garden was in full display in mid September, and you can help yourself to whatever you need.The Vineyard site can easily accommodate a VERY large tent (and two very small dogs).
