The campsite is in an open meadow on our 5 acre property, next to the ruins of what was one of the oldest barns in the county (there are still some beautiful stone walls left). You will be surrounded by trees and the spot is completely private. Directly across the road from our property (a 5 minute walk) is the Little Miami Scenic Trail, the third longest paved trail in the US (amazing for biking). The unique village of Yellow Springs is only a 5 minute drive away with a great local grocery store and several cafes. Included in this campsite is access to our 1830s spring house if you want a refreshing dip! If you would like to visit our chickens or Angie's pottery studio in the barn, just let us know and we'd love to show you around. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE BOOKING.

Notes: 1) We are still building a compost toilet so the option on the property now is to dig a cat hole at least 6" deep. There is an open public toilet in Yellow Springs and several businesses with open bathrooms. 2) The spring house is not secluded, you can see it from our driveway. We regularly let it drain and it fills itself up. Water level depends on rainfall. It is cold but perfect for hot days! 3) The campsite is right off of Route 68. You cannot see cars from the site but you can hear them. The amount of noise from cars is very low at night. 4) The meadow is ideal for tent camping, though it is NOT a built campsite so it is not perfectly level throughout. 5) For camper vans: we do allow camper vans (not RVs) but please note when it rains it can get very muddy. No camper vans have been stuck in the meadow due to rain/mud, but it has happened to an RV and hence we do not accept RVs at our site. 6) We are in the process of removing scrap metal from the barn ruins and hence there is a pile of scrap metal collected along one edge of the site that is currently visible. It should be completely removed by May 1, 2021.

I found angies spot after seeing the John Bryan campground was full. I’m so glad I found it! It is very private & secluded and so close to everything in yellow springs.

Great little primitive camping spot! Stayed here with a couple buddies, hung out by the fire, surrounded by green, which is exactly what we wanted. Very close to downtown Yellow Springs.

This is a great place to stay. convenient if you want to hang out in yellow Springs. Very quiet, feels very remote. Also a great spot for stargazing, if weather allows.

This spot is conveniently close to Yellow Springs and a short ride to the wonderful bike path that runs along US 68. Use care crossing 68 and a wide field to get to the path.

Although this camping spot is good for tents, I hesitate to recommend it for a van or a pop-up camper. The 'meadow' is actually small and on a fairly steep slope for camping in a van. I had trouble finding a spot flat enough that wasn't too close to the fire pit. On a hot day, it took until early evening to not be in be direct sun.

Geography aside, a tent should do fine for most people and the quick access to YS and cycling path is a plus.

Exactly as advertised, well maintained beautiful campsite. Perfect for a quick family getaway. Private and conveniently located near yellow springs and the state park.

The chickens and spring house added some fun for the kids.

proximity to yellow springs and other things to do nearby are the highlights of this spot. the old barn marks the entrance, which is cool. the spring is basically right across the short driveway into the spot, but was too cold for a dip at the end of september. cute though! the site is sloped - there’s good space for hanging out/ a table but our tent was too big to be on an entirely flat spot. the compost toilet wasn’t ready and the public restrooms in YS didn’t open til 10am, so we used port a potties. i’d recommend this if you want your own campsite near yellow springs! my favorite thing was bringing campsite chairs to the jacoby road canoe launch nearby and relaxing in the shade :)

A very nice spot, super-convenient to the bike trail.
The description is very accurate. It's a nice mowed open area with a fire ring in the center. It's off of the driveway to the house in its own space and surrounded by trees that shaded the area very early in the evening/late afternoon.
The bike trail is very close, but there is no direct access to it. I just followed the wide shoulder of US 68 a few hundred feet then crossed through some grass to the trail very easily, then had a very enjoyable ride to Yellow Springs for some fantastic vegan food at Calypso Grill.
As noted, it is very close to US 68, but also as noted, the amount of traffic truly does reduce in the evening and it did not bother me in the least. Even at the highest amount of traffic noise it was not bothersome.
The ruins of the old barn are a cool touch to this spot. I'd very gladly return.

Great little place. Secluded meadow. Close to Yellow Springs and Xenia. Hosts were hospitable. Advise bringing your own camp toilet/latrine as there are no facilities but the area is so secluded there is complete privacy. Only drawback is the noise of the road and the speedway with loud engines nearby.
