It was a great open site, with everything we needed! It was so nice waking up and seeing chickens turkeys and pigs roaming the yard, they were all so cute! They even had free games to borrow like giant Yahtzee, and a shop where you can purchase homemade jams, or fresh eggs! We were very thrilled with our stay, 10/10 would recommend!!

Definitely a unique stay. The extra amenities offered where a great touch (snacks, food, camp shower, etc.). The grounds are very well cared for. Only advice with the adorable pot belly pigs would to make sure you don't leave anything out that may interest them. They're like really big raccoons. Other than that, we enjoyed our weekend overall.

Camping at Burke’s barnyard was such an amazing experience! This is really a campsite for everyone.
potbelly pigs, turkeys and chickens roam the land, melissa was an amazing host, upon my arrival her and her grandson greeted me with farm fresh eggs.
Theres a nice trail that runs around the whole property excellent for exploring, a clear spot in the back from stargazing, and a little tent set up front that sells munchies, food, toiletries and all your camping needs.

Burke’s farm is about 20mins from Bancroft so a great place to stay if your headed out to eagles nest or princess sodalite mine and want to make a trip out of it

If you have never camped before This is the place for you! Instead of running out and buying a bunch of equipment the farm offers everything you need for first time camping, you can rent a tent, grill, shower, toilet, and more!

The farm has something for everyone and I can’t wait to come back next season!

By far one of the best camping spots that I have been to. A nice little campsite beside a barnyard that offers a lot entertainment and beautiful views to see around it. It has a lake shy of 10 minutes away driving. With a view of lush forest trees, hills and a serenity to it that can only be seen in movies, till now. The hosts offered exceptional customer service and help with any concerns on the campground. Be it necessities, questions or inquiries that we may have needed. Including that they asked for feedback to make any future stays for ourselves or other campers, an even better experience. Our small group wanted to try something new and see if it’d be a good camping spot. They far exceeded our expectations on making Burke’s Barnyard one of the hidden gems to stay at. Will be a spot that friends, family and myself will frequently visit in the future for camping.

My husband and I recently camped here and it was an all around amazing experience. Gary & Melissa we’re excellent hosts and we had everything we needed. This was one of the most unique camping experiences I’ve ever had, our camp site was surrounded by farm life, 2 friendly pot belly pigs, a field of cows, and a yard of chickens lots of trails and absolutely beautiful scenery we will definitely be making this a yearly camping trip for our family!
