HUNTER'S PARK BY DC

11 sites 路 RVs, Tents27 acres 路 Damascus, MD
The campground is situated in the wooded area on the back of 27 acre horse farm which is known as "The Stables at Mezza Luna." Every year in the spring there are 4-6 Thoroughbred foals born that eventually will become racehorses. They live on the farm until they are 2 years old and then they go off to begin their racing career. In the daytime, when you are not sitting around your campfire, you can walk the fence lines and visit with the Mares and Foals or just watch them frolic in the fields. Hint! "They love peppermints, carrots and apples." Who knows, you might get to meet a future Kentucky Derby winner. There are also chickens, ducks and peacocks that are very anxious to receive your love and affection with any type of treat as well. Kids can even go in the chicken coop and pick out their very own egg they can cook for their breakfast. For the energetic campers and kids there are also lots of trails that you can walk or hike on and there is a small stream the kids can play in. There also is a playground with swings, monkey bars, seesaw and trampoline. Don't miss out out on this hidden gem just minutes from our nation's capital.

Willet Family Farm

5 sites 路 RVs, Tents12 acres 路 Westminster, MD
Named 鈥淔avorite Hipcamp Site in the State of Maryland" by OUTSIDE MAGAZINE in 2020! The tallest structure on our farm is the windmill, constructed in 1874, and it quickly became the logo for our farm because a windmill is something that harnesses power for a specific purpose. For many generations, the windmill harnessed the power of the wind to grind grain or pump water, but now in the 21st century, Willet Family Farm hopes to harness the power of the outdoors to benefit every guest that comes to visit. The Willet Farm survived many hardships including The Great Depression, the 1999 tornado that destroyed the barn, and cancer that claimed the life of family members too early. In 2006, The farm had to be sold outside of the family, but in an effort to honor past generations and preserve the heritage of what the farm stood for (faith, family and hard work), Jeremy and Kathleen Willet purchased the farm back in 2017. The 13 acre farm is perfectly located in the middle of over 200 acres of farmland owned by parents and cousins. Since that time, we have welcomed over 200 guests from 10 different states and 2 different countries! We raise free-range chickens, board horses and are a Renewable Energy Farm completely powered by the sun through a comprehensive solar design on our barn.

The best camping near Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens guide

Overview

About

Tiptoe among lily pads, and maybe have a picnic lunch alongside a frog or turtle, in the only national park property devoted entirely to aquatic plants. Located along the Anacostia River in northeastern Washington DC, this park offers plenty to see and do.

Trails weave in and out of forested land and bring you upon a vista you may never see anywhere else. Man-made ponds border natural wetlands to give you an idea of what this part of the city used to look like before civilization crept in. The amazing part is that thousands of lilies float on top of the water. They bloom every July, which serves as the time frame for the annual Lotus and lily festival in Anacostia Park.

This area was originally set aside as a park in 1791 when Washington DC's master plan said this green space should be reserved for public use. For 26 years, a Civil War veteran owned the property and began growing aquatic plants. The rest is history. When the government took over the property, it decided to keep things as they were.

Aside from walking trails, bring a picnic lunch to dine among the lily pads as if you're in a fairytale. There's no need to kiss any frogs, though. They're too busy hopping among the lily pads. Campsites near this park offer a fantastic way to enjoy the natural beauty of the nation's capital.
