Karen’s farm was a great place to camp for a weekend. The location was not too far from South Bend where we had family to meet but far enough away that we felt like it was a getaway.

This is a great location and a lovely spot to stay. I enjoyed the peace and quiet of the farm, right next to all the fragrant herb gardens and colorful market gardens, plus a trail through a restored prairie. The campsite has nice soft grass for tenting, and you can park there. Nice benches around a firepit too. The farm shop has farm items and locally made foods (like elderberry jelly!) and craft items , including owner Karen’s silk scarves, and hand bound books. You can relax, learn about the farm and crafts, and explore the area. There are restaurants and shops just a few miles away, and you are less than a hour from Indiana Dunes parks on Lake Michigan.

The Farm was wonderful. It was a beautiful mix of prairie, organic farm and tall corn nearing harvest. Karen was very welcoming upon our arrival. Site was pretty secluded. Area abounds in things to do and see. We spent most our time at area lakes for swimming and reading.

Our stay at the Farm Camp was nothing short of incredible. Karen immediately greeted us and gave us the lay of the land, showing us where the water was, where to park, how to use the toilet, and provided us with firewood. The energy on the farm was truly infectious, and we were blessed with a beautiful, hot Michigan evening. The scenery and the walking trails could not be more beautiful, and Karen as well as her son Jason we’re happy to explain the different areas of the farm to us, the vegetables they were growing, and just about every other aspect of the farm. While driving across the country, we were worried where we would end up staying in the Chicago area, hoping not to settle on a cheap hotel. Thankfully we came across the farm camp, which became one of the absolute highlights of the trip. We will absolutely be back, and highly recommend this hip camp to anybody in the area!

Karen’s farm was perfect for our weekend trip. My 7 year old loved roaming free on the grounds of the farm and chatting with “Farmer Karen” about plant, bugs, and farming. We made the short drive to Stone Lake for swimming and fishing.
