I loved camping here! I only stayed for a night but it was well worth it. The hosts greeted me and showed me where everything was and were very nice. I liked passing by and seeing all the animals and food they grow. My site was a bit of a walk to get to but I didn’t mind having to lug my stuff- it was perfectly secluded in the woods and the surrounding area was beautiful. There is access to water and an outhouse, I was also given plenty of firewood! There are also trails and a overlook swing to enjoy, overall would stay again!

I camped with a friend and her dog for one night at Beacon's and it was a wonderful experience! They were incredibly accommodating and let us check-in at midnight due to a long drive we had that day. They walked us to our site, explained the amenities, and even pointed out a hiking trail for the morning if we were interested. There was fire wood and a fire pit available at our private site. In the morning we picked some green beans with our host and had delightful a conversation about the property.

I would note that the host's are very religious if that is not your cup-of-tea then this isn't the camping site for you. They were incredibly kind and respectful throughout our stay and I would definitely camp there again if I am every in the area.

We loved camping at Beacon Farm!

Our hosts were great - we loved hearing them share their story, getting to milk the goats and helping them farm the next day. The fireflies at night were also beautiful!

Tent camping was great here! There is a little trail that was super cute and the camping spot was secluded just enough. The best part was helping with the farm. They were so sweet and we had so much fun!

First time here and we definitely be back. Super quiet and peaceful, I spent two nights. Walked the trails and enjoyed the bench in the woods. Everything was so green and beautiful. Didn’t use the outhouse as I am self contained.

Was able to read a book and a half and just enjoy the peace and quiet.
