Plenty of space for hammocks, eating, tenting, playing, cooking, and sitting by the fire. Loved the covered area… awesome especially on the last day when it rained!

It was a beautiful site and well-kept. The creek was a lot of fun for my daughter--full of fish and crayfish and very clean. Nearby Mammoth Park was beautiful and just a short walk away.

Lovely spot tucked away in the trees, but not isolated in deep woods. The camp-side stream is great and the kids loved the tire swing. We brought some of our tables and our canopy, but we didn't need to: the pavilion is large and directly next to the campsite. It has two wooden picnic tables and a glass table as well.

One tip: if you cross the footbridge, then turn right, walk along the stream a bit, then follow a small foot path through the brush, you'll emerge in a large field in Mammoth Park near the baseball fields. Follow the treeline a little farther, and you'll find a playground and bathrooms with running water all within a 5-minute walk from the campsite.

Our visit to Footbridge Haven farm was a lovely evening in peaceful surroundings. During our stay, my husband and I drove-up to the campsite right near the large, covered pavilion. The camping plot was well-maintained with a fire ring, wood stove, playground, swing, and access to a rustic, outdoor toilet. The evening was quiet, and we slept soundly in our tent set up near the gently flowing stream.

The next morning we woke up as amber light filtered through tall pines and other evergreens. Cows were resting in an adjacent pasture as dew slowly rose from the tall grass. Before packing up and continuing our journey, my husband and I ambled around the property, taking the short path over the footbridge. We also let our inner-child enjoy the tire swing that hoisted us over the width of the stream.

If you’re searching for a quiet, relaxed place to spend the night, Footbridge Haven is a great pick. Thank you for sharing your Hipcamp with us!
