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 Caledonia State Park guide

Overview

About

Caledonia State Park sits gingerly on the northern crest of Blue Ridge Mountain, at a little spot called South Mountain. Enshrouded by vivacious soils chock-full of juicy orchards that will have you suckling like a baby, and with trout-filled streams that will have you crying (out of joy!) like one. With two well-endowed campgrounds blanketed by starry skies and gently serrated by towers of pine and oak, you鈥檒l be sleeping like a baby too. But it鈥檚 not all baby talk here. Hike a few mile sample of the renowned 2,186 mile Appalachian Trail that connects Georgia to Maine, and feel connected to the age-old lands that so many before you and after you will traverse

When to go

The best time to visit Caledonia State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the foliage is either blooming or showcasing a vibrant array of colors. Summer offers warm days perfect for exploring, though it can be crowded. Winters are cold and may limit access to some park areas.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's official website for any alerts or closures before your visit.
  • Wear appropriate footwear and clothing for hiking and outdoor activities.
  • Be mindful of park wildlife; observe from a distance and do not feed the animals.
  • Review the Leave No Trace principles to help preserve the park's natural beauty.
  • Facilities such as restrooms and picnic areas are available, but it's wise to bring essentials like water and snacks.
