The van/camper site is off our main driveway and close to level. With sweet views of the sunset, you will be parked across from our 120 year old farmhouse, provided with a fire ring. Our yard pool is visible from the site, next to the farmhouse, so the site is not entirely private, but we are a quiet family and protect our guests peace - the site is a safe, quiet boondocking

Our yard pool is visible from the site, next to the farmhouse, so the site is not entirely private, but we are a quiet family and protect our guests peace - the site is a safe, quiet boondocking spot. We run a working permaculture family homestead with nearby lanes, forests and fields for exploring, and goats, chickens and rabbits to say hello to. Our four small rescue dogs (and a couple of friendly neighborhood dogs that sometimes wander through) may stop by to say hello. We are a quiet but busy family and try to be conscientious neighbors and appreciate the same. We are close to Jordan Lake, the Haw River and the bustling towns of Pittsboro, Chapel Hill and Carrboro.

From the photos and ad copy on the booking, I expected goats and chickens and a place where there was a lot to do and help out with. This is not the case. The animals were all sold LAST August according to Alisa's Facebook page. I suspect that the situation has been affected by COVID and so do not wish to be too harsh, but the ad copy and photographs need to be updated to reflect the current situation. I wish them all the best. Nice family.
When we first arrived, there was broken glass on the ground and a small kitchen knife. This spot is right in front of the main house so no privacy and not a lot of stretch room. Not a bad spot if you need to just crash for a night, but not for long term.
Had a fantastic time at Sparkroot! What an amazing property with all sorts of patches to explore and lots of sculptures everywhere. Alisa was wonderful and so was her family in helping with everything. 10 min to the Jordan Lake boat ramp! Overall awesome time!
Alisa was a wonderful host and the space was perfect. Her daughter delivered us firewood and an extension cord to charge our batteries. The shower and compostable toilet was also very convenient. Perfect stay!
Sparkroot Farm is a sweet little spot and Alisa a very conscientious host. I didn’t have much time to explore as I was working and just needed a spot to park my van to sleep for a few nights. I did enjoy the peaceful surrounds and brief visits with dogs, goats, and chickens. Though the camper/van spot is right in front of the family’s home, I felt I was afforded much privacy. Watched the sunset from the picnic table while eating dinner. Best part was lying in bed with the window open and hearing cows lowing, owls hooting, and even coyotes howling and yipping. And of course, there was also a whippoorwill.
