Jane was so kind and welcoming. She has a gorgeous property and where we were near the water there was consistently a pleasant breeze. I had never used hipcamp before but I can't imagine that most camping experiences on here are is as nice as this one was. She is a microgreens farmer and upon arrival we were greeted with tray of live sprouts creatively planted with my husband's name and 40, just for our munching pleasure. She was so sweet to pick up eggs for us from a friend who is a farmer down the road and even left us a little bowl of fresh tomatoes and peaches! We had a nice relaxing get away for my husband's birthday and hope to visit again when the Black Water River is running a little lower. The marina is closer than it seems from the pictures so I would recommend that you are a confident kayaker if you plan on exploring in a small boat from this property. The "Devil's Left Ear" is directly across from the property so perhaps research this particular area before hand if you're looking to explore. We had rented kayaks for the weekend but become intimidated once we heard how easy it was to get lost and saw all the giant fast boats going in and out of the marina. It was however a fantastic elevated basecamp for a day trip kayaking down the Black Water River through the Three Sisters Swamp.

We stayed for a night at the grape arbor site at Jane's farm and it was beautiful! She hung up solar lamps for us and it looked very romantic at night. We were in town for a wedding so we arrived pretty late, but Jane was very responsive and understanding about our situation and had everything labeled for us and sent photos and a video for us to see where we needed to park. I definitely recommend staying at Jane's farm, and we will definitely be back for a longer stay to meet her, visit her farm, and to go kayaking in the area!

The MicroFarm was an absolute oasis north of Wilmington. I loved the residential feel of the neighborhood, and Jane's property stood out as one of natural beauty, thoughtfulness, and hard work. The pomegranates were in bloom as well as her entire hoop house, which created a sense of privacy and plenty of shade for my stay.

I stayed on the hanging bed at site two, and stayed dry even in an intense thunderstorm. I had access to an outlet, cold water shower, and bedside toilet all to myself.

I went out on an amazing paddle board adventure first thing Saturday morning (before the wind picked up) and was able to enjoy the birds and fish feeding. The mosquitos were not nearly as bad as I anticipated, and being able to relax in the shade with a book during the warm part of the day was serene.

Grocery stores and coffee shops were only about 7 minutes away, and the restaurant/bar at the marina next door was quite relaxing! I was impressed with and grateful for how small the crowd was for a holiday weekend. Jane was a wonderful host who puts a lot of care and effort into her guests' experience, and I am so glad my first HipCamp experience was with her!

This is a beautiful property and Jane is very friendly. You can take a walk to enjoy the marina view and there is a restaurant within a walking distance right on the water.
