Hi Folks, thank you to everyone who stayed on our farm, cared for it, and enjoyed it in 2020, we hope to see you for the 2021 camping season.

Welcome to our serene hay farm on 22 acres with rolling fields and wooded areas. We’re located 20 minutes from downtown Asheville and offer a beautiful setting with seven self-serve camp sites. We may be around the farm working and living but we will give you all the privacy you may want and need during these strange times.

This campground is for primitive camping, there is potable water available from spigots located near the farmhouse and pond. Each campsite has a firepit!

For the health and safety of all of our campers and our farm, we ask that you refrain from using firearms and fireworks. Thanks for understanding.

NO SHOWERS OR RESTROOMS, we don't want there to be any confusion, we do not have any restrooms. You should bring a shovel or digging device for your cat-hole. If you don't want to dig a cat-hole, please bring your own portable potty system, we like the Luggable Loos.

Bring your TENT or Small TRAILER, pick a site of your choosing when booking, stay a night or a week. As always, leave no trace.

Please read the site descriptions carefully before booking, thank you.

(Sites #3 and #4 are the only sites suitable for Trailer Campers, the rest are either too small for a turn around or too steep, thank you for understanding.)

Site #1: Hilltop site with shade and good views, 4 wheel drives and some front wheel drives can make it to this site. This site is a large area that can support multiple tents. Drive up to the farm house and take a right up the hill along the left side of the trees. Once you're at the end of the tree lined path, turn left and it's straight ahead about 100 yards. It's a 200 yard hike from the parking area (near the front of the farmhouse) if your vehicle won't make it up the hill.

Site #2: Hilltop site in the open, excellent views, 4 wheel drives and some front wheel drives can make it to this site. This site is a large area that can support multiple tents. Drive up to the farm house and take a right up the hill along the left side of the trees. . Once you're at the end of the tree lined path, turn right and it's straight ahead about 100 yards. It's a 200 yard hike from the parking area (near the front of the farmhouse) if your vehicle won't make it up the hill.

Sites #3 and #4 are close to one another in an open field.

Site #3: Valley site in the open, good for small trailer campers. Easy access from the left side of our driveway. We do not have any water/electricity hookups or a dump station.

Site #4: Valley site in the open, good for small trailer campers. Easy access from the left side of our driveway. We do not have any water/electricity hookups or a dump station.

Site #5: Partially wooded site behind our barn, shady, and easy access for most vehicles. This site is not recommended for trailer campers due to the narrow road/path between our barn and creek. Take a left after the "campground rules" sign, then park behind our barn. Pick a good spot to camp, you'll see the firepit.

Site #6: Hilltop site in the open, excellent views, WALK UP SITE ONLY. It is near an old family cemetery. Park at the front of our barn, walk up the hill and continue around the top of the pasture (about 200 yards) until you're close to the cemetery. The cemetery is private property and we ask that you not trespass, plus it's creepy, so don't camp there if you're faint of heart.

Site #7: Hilltop site with excellent views. Exceptionally private and in our woods, WALK-UP SITE ONLY. Park at the front of our barn, hike behind the barn to a path that leads up the hill. Once there, hike approximately 150 yards up a steep hill along the right side of our pasture. This is for the adventurous types, must be willing to be alone in the woods with deer, turkey, bobcats, coyotes, and possibly bears and mountain lions... camp at your own risk.

“Few places in this world are more dangerous than home. Fear not, therefore, to try the mountain passes. They will kill care, save you from deadly apathy, set you free, and call forth every faculty into vigorous, enthusiastic action.”

My fiancé and I stayed here late October at spot 3 and it was amazing. The grounds are extremely well kept and clean, it's quiet and relaxing. and the treehouse is pretty cool!

I highly suggest staying here and Jay is great to work with.

This place was truly magical. Our girls LOVED the treehouse and swing. We had gorgeous views at site 7. The coyotes howling at night were magical and the stars we unreal. Can’t wait to return and highly recommend!

First time staying here and will definitely be coming back. Even though there's a lot of campsites, you still feel isolated. Extremely well kept and having the option to buy fire wood is very convenient!

Jay's property is beautiful. We stayed in #5 behind the barn. Site 5 has a lot of shade and we were shielded by some trees when it started raining. It is just a short walk to the treehouse, water spigot, and the firewood. The firewood is reasonably priced. We walked all along the property and it seemed all the spots were beautiful. Definitely on my favs list.

Staying at Jay's place was great. He has a huge variety of different camp spots to choose from to accommodate any kind of camp.

The view at Camp Site #2 is scenic and the perfect amount of privacy from the other sites. The firewood station was very convenient and the water spigots as well

We had a great weekend at Newfound Campground. It was our second trip here and we loved it both times. We stayed at site 1 which had really nice views. Our car is 2-wheel drive and made it up the hill ok but not easily. Would definitely recommend this campsite to others.

We absolutely loved our time at Newfound Campground! Our dog had so much space to explore, the views were incredible, and it was very private! We loved being on our own while also knowing Jay and his family were nearby if we needed anything. Water & firewood nearby was very accessible as well. We are already wanting to go back!!
