We are a farm of all sorts! You will drive by animals as you pull-in There is a beautiful trail loop to explore on 20 acres of woods. These are rustic, peaceful sites.  A great get away to spend the day swimming, or watching horses graze. There is a rustic outhouse near the pond field.  Water fill can be supplied by hose upon request. Dog friendly in the woods area/campsites. Your access area is from the campsite to the pond. With permission, dogs can swim in the pond. We do have 8 dogs on the property, but they stay in our immediate yard. We are easy going couple and mind our own business. Many times there is a bus or camper being built in our driveway, so be aware; we are a working farm and are not always perfectly manicured. Sharing our property is a passion of ours, travel is also important to us and we love to share stories. We are happy to accommodate any specific needs if we can. We are a busy farm, but offer farm animal tours on occasion with notice. No animal visits without prior discussion and booking. We are happy to host parties and small events (I am ordained in the State of Michigan), we also have an indoor arena for rent. Our sister farm offers small group horseback riding, 15 mins away for an additional fee. We look forward to meeting you on your travels. 

We offer access to electric for an additional small fee, with prior notice only.

NO HIPCAMPERS ALLOWED UP AT HE BARNS WITHOUT PRIOR PLANS.

Spent the weekend camping on Tara's land, near the pond, and had a blast. She is very accommodating and responsive to any needs we had. We loved the walk around the property and being able to pet the animals.

Tara is a wonderful host and the space was exactly what I was looking for! My kids and I ventured out with our pop up for the first time. The swimming hole was perfect for swimming and floating. Tara gave me and the kids a tour of some of her animals on the farm. It was so amazing hearing about the animals and it was clear she loves what she does. My kids are already asking when we can go back!

This swimming pond is as great as it looks!The kids loved feeding the ponies!Nice flat space with power for the pop up

We had a great time camping in the woods at Tara’s farm. The woods were spacious and private, and Tara was an excellent host. Wonderful way to spend a weekend!
