So welcoming and fun!
Cheryl was such a great host and I really enjoyed my time camping at Fangthorn Forest Farm. They provided me with a camp chair since I didn't have one and made me feel so welcome. I loved getting to pet and feed all the animals too! I will be back. :)
Great first camp trip for children
I went here with my son for his very first camping trip, and loved everything about it. The hosts were super friendly, the site was nice and open, plus there were plenty of farm animals for him to see. He even pet their alpacas! Tons of fun!!
We had an absolutely wonderful trip! The campsite is beautifully maintained with a clean outhouse kept separate just down the lighted path. Plenty of spots to choose from for pitching your tent and plenty of space to spread out. Our hosts were friendly, gracious, and accommodating, providing a picnic table, folding tables, plenty of firewood, grates for the fire ring, and Halloween decorations! Feeding the animals was a fun experience, and listening talking to each other around us added to the charm. We look forward to coming back soon!
Lovely space, adorable cows
We had such a nice time camping at Fangthorn Forest! Cheryl was friendly and accommodating without being overbearing. She let us know when it was time to feed the animals and we got to say hello to the friendly cows. We had a pleasant, peaceful stay.
