We were looking for a nice quiet place to camp while mountain biking the numerous local trails (FATS is about 15 minutes away). Pam and Hard Earth Farm exceeded our expectations in every way. The farm is beautiful, the camping is dispersed & everything is immaculately clean. To call the bathroom an outhouse does not do it justice, it feels like a perfectly normal bathroom with running hot/cold water & a shower. Interaction with the farm animals and the trail down to the creek was an added bonus. I highly recommend this campground & will definitely be back.

Pam and absolutely everything about Hard Earth Farm blew my expectations out of the water. The farm is GORGEOUS, the campsite was absolutely spectacular, and there’s an incredibly friendly/curious llama on the farm which may have been the highlight of my entire cross-country road trip. Everything was very covid-safe, hand sanitizer and diluted bleach were available in several locations, and I really appreciated that they took our safety so seriously. The outhouse on site was a full-on bathroom with running water, and was so nice I struggle to even call it an outhouse. There was also a short loop trail connected to our site which made for some very enjoyable morning hikes. I’m struggling to come up with all the words necessary to define how spectacular this site is, and how grateful I am to have stayed here. I’ll definitely be back.

Hard earth farm camp was an awesome experience! The farm was beautiful and the camp site areas are kept up very well, were level, and the raised platforms would keep you dry in any weather. The owners of the property were extremely helpful, friendly, and accommodating. Great value and a fun time!

My daughter decided she wanted a farm camping experience for her seventh birthday. We and her best friend and family spent three nights at Hard Earth Farm, and I can't say enough about how wonderful it was. Pam and Micky were the most gracious hosts, going so far above with their hospitality and really welcoming us into their day-to-day experiences. We milked goats, brushed and fed rabbits, were honored with llama kisses, and made good friends with the sturdiest, snuggliest barn cat I've ever met. The accommodations were so nice: new platforms for our tents kept us off the ground and away from creepy crawlies; The new bath house is luxurious with a sink, shower, and toilet; The Cozy House is a charming home base that has a little fridge, microwave, and a fan (which meant a lot on this super hot weekend). There is also a great fire pit area down the valley a bit near to the camp sites that is cool in the evening. Aside from all of the fun farm activities, there are some great hiking trails that go down to a lovely creek. We spent a morning wading up and down there, and then it was a quick drive over to the nearby lake to cool off in the afternoon.
Pam and Micky also have a really beautiful garden they are cultivating, and the beginnings of a lovely vineyard. It is inspiring to see the work they are doing to rehabilitate what was clear cut lumber land not too many years ago. With sustainable farming and responsible animal husbandry, they really demonstrate what small farming looks like today. I am so grateful to them for sharing this wonderful experience with us, and the girls had the very best time. It's a lovely property, and we can't wait to go back. Though maybe in March when the goats are being born and it's not 97 degrees ;)

Hard Earth Farm is an oasis just a short drive from the city of Augusta. It has been a wonderful escape for me and I plan to return again soon. With rolling hills, small creeks and beautiful forests and pastures, this place won't disappoint. An easy drive and an escape into nature.
Pam and Mickey have thought of everything. They are wonderful hosts and depending on your interest, you can rough it or stay close to the farm...its your choice. Will be back for sure!
