The space to camp was BEAUTIFUL, so well taken care of. And being so close to the animals and getting to feed and play with them was incredible!

Camping at Cook’s Country Connection was amazing. We were amongst goats, llamas, alpacas, horses, baby yaks, you name it - day and night! It was an experience none of us will ever forget, and the kids already have plans to go back next month. Lois is welcoming and down to Earth. Bring some rain boots to run around in and a sense of adventure!

My family lived Camping with the Critters! It was easy to find, and my daughter had so much fun with the goats, miniature horses, donkeys, chickens, ducks, peafowl, miniature cows, yaks and more! She's already asking if we can go back!

We had a really fun stay at camping with critters. Lois and the gang were friendly and helpful. Best of all we were able to interact with a bunch of friendly farm animals who wondered through our campsite. Such a unique experience . I would highly recommend!

We had the BEST time camping at Cook Country Connection! Lois was a fantastic host and we got to camp with the animals on the petting farm. After hours, they brought out grain to feed and get to know the various animals (alpacas and baby yak and a mini steer, oh my!). Our campsite in the pasture was beautiful, with a fire pit and very clean port-a-potties. It was an incredible experience.

My stay on the farm was perfect and Lois was so accommodating. I can’t wait to come back to participate in all there is to do from the tour to a fiber workshop one day. Thank you so much for curating such a memorable stay.

We spent two nights at the critters with our host Lois she is a very enjoyable and pleasant lady and we really enjoyed her little farm and all her animals. They run free in the pastures and you camp with them it was such an exciting experience we truly enjoyed it and will go back again
