On the outskirts of Colon, Michigan (The Magicians Capital of the World) there is a little farm being re-developed by The Stickley Family. And now they share their dream of enjoying healthy, fun, and sustainable land with you as they develop the grounds into a regional agri-tainment and educational destination.

Just a brief drive from cities like Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, and Battle Creek, The Stickley Family Farm is the perfect rustic escape to pitch your tent, cook over a fire pit, and gaze at the stars far away from the city lights.

This site is nestled in the woods just 65' from the parking area... Totally secluded, but easily accessible! A fire ring and flat clearings are provided for ample camping. The site is also right next to a major deer trail! Don't be surprised to have many "venison visitors"!

While camping and exploring the 20 acres of fields and woods, you're only 1.5 miles from downtown Colon, MI, the "Magic Capital of the World". Right downtown there is a great bar, pizza parlor, restaurants, and theatres featuring live magic shows! As if that's not enough, Colon is a unique town set directly between two large lakes connected by bridge which offer incredible fishing, kayaking, public boat launches, and docks waiting for you to explore.

Depending on when you visit, you may even have a chance to watch the owners as they work the farm.

The sites are currently rustic with no running water or facilities, but in time that will be changing.

If you're looking for a bigger site, or to bring a camper, you'll want our Rustic Farm site, also listed on Hipcamp! This is a smaller wooded tent-only site.

Come relax at our little slice of heaven!

Our campsite was tucked into a little inlet in the trees in full shade next to a large field. The space was very large and split into 3 sections, which is nice for separate cooking, bathing, and sleeping areas. It was very quiet and we didn't see anyone else on the property until the last night. Most of the time we spent away visiting friends or out hiking and were able to come and go as we liked from the property. Lots of deer roam the woods and often would come right by us in the night, which could be terrifying if you didn't know what it was. I think they started to get used to us being there after a couple of nights, and didn't come by as much. The mosquitos can be daunting in Michigan in the summer, and here was so exception. Make sure you bring your bug spray! The downtown area of Colon is a sweet little place, and the locals were very friendly and welcoming to us there. We ate at Dawn's Cafe a few times, and definitely recommend stopping by there!
