Black Rabbit Farm

3 sites · RVs, Tents10 acres · Southwick, MA
Black Rabbit Farm is not only a beautiful oasis, but a fully operational 10 acre farm. Situated at the foot of the Berkshires, the farm is home to a small orchard, vineyard, and garden space. We take pride in creating a sustainable environment for all our production, based on what the land has to offer. Small greenhouse spaces create year-round production. Rocky hillside will develop a significant "terroir" for our grapes. Even adopted cats prowl the fields to reduce small animal populations. The views are to die for and the easy access to Rte 91 and the Mass Pike will make your trip an easy one for all involved. Visit our gallery farmstore, open Friday-Sunday, and find local punk crafts, clothing, cut flowers, heirloom vegetables, CBD products, and more!

Quentin B.’s Land

1 site · Lodging1 acre · Monterey, MA
Lake Garfield was named after President Garfield and was where he had his summer house. My place is the original boatshed of the house. The treehouse was built 15 years ago as a sleepout to watch the stars. It's a pretty quiet Lake up in the mountains of the Berkshires and sits at 1200feet so the nights get a little crisp which makes for a great night's sleep.

5 sites · Lodging, Tents41 acres · West Chesterfield, MA
We're named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2024 and 2023! Over 40 acres of solitude tucked in the hilltowns of the western Massachusetts Berkshires -- boasting warm sunrises over the distant hills, lush forest for hiking and meandering river frontage on Bronson Brook and walking distance to the Westfield River to wade and soak in the cool mountain water or fish for native trout! The cabin and camping sites are located in beautiful trails that were created around the main home -- an architect designed masterpiece boasting a wonderful asian influence yet handcrafted from the very timberstock off the land on which it sits lending a refined rustic twist. 25 Min to Northampton and 10 min to the Berkshires! You can hike or bike to the best swimming holes around and camp within our beautiful forested hills of hemlock, birch, maple, and wildflower meadow.

Cozie Nook Homestead

2 sites · Tents110 acres · Ashfield, MA
A small family farm that has been in Dennis's family since 1914. The old county road once existed in front of our house. Where horses and wagons would stop to off load part of their load to continue up the hill. They would return to pick up the rest and continue on. Since inheriting the farm, we have moved towards sustainable farming. We follow grass fed measures while raising our sheep the poultry free ranges to control the flea and tick population on the farm. Our vegetables are grown organically. We harvest only what is needed to heat our home from the forest leaving under growth alone. Last fall almost a hundred acres, of our farm, went into land conservation protecting it from urban sprawl.

Art-Funk Cabin in da Woods

1 site · Lodging5 acres · Granville, MA
Take a break from hardcore camping and relax, play in the woods, paint write and draw. Stretch ur body in the yoga swing! Located in the Berkshire foothills, we are close to all kinds of hiking, biking, snow sports and antique hunting. We are also surrounded by micro-farms and food artisans. We ask that you use fans and wood stove (instead of baseboard heat and aircon) as much as possible. And otherwise conserve resources. In general we seek thoughtful and self-reliant types who - like us - try to be good stewards of the earth. We are LGBTQ-friendly, BLM-positive, dog-friendly, 420-friendly and just generally friendly and nice. Small A-frame cabin adjacent to main house. Both built in the 1970's by a retired history prof who taught himself to build. Surprisingly shabby-chic interior. More glamping than straight up camping.

The best camping near Tunxis State Forest guide

Overview

About

Located in northern Connecticut, right up there by Massachusetts, Tunxis State Forest is wild and remote. The trees here are some of the oldest around, since it was already wooded when it became owned by the state in 1923. Most other forests were only just growing into what they are now from abandoned farms.

You never know what you might see in Tunxis State Forest, although we can give you some ideas. If you go for a hike through these old trees, you might spy a moose munching on foliage, or a black bear bumbling about. If that hike happens to be the Falls Brook trail, then you will certainly see a beautiful waterfall.
