Beautiful farm but terribly smelly
Overall it was a quiet, easy to find and get to camp site! Hosts have a garage you enter to get to a shower, toilet, and washer and dryer you can use. Very clean facility, and friendly folks. Only downside is the very steong manure smell, as someone who was raised near horse farms, I thought the cam hosts description of "active farm" would be easily overlooked, but our RV was swarmed with black and green flies and we had to burn all our candles and button up hardcore to keep the manure smell down just so we could eat dinner and keep it down.
Honestly, the manure smell and flies was the only down sides, and the camp hosts probably couldn't help those issues.
I'd recommend the camp for anyone with very good sealed window, doors, and vents and have strong scentes candles on hand.
The camp hosts farm dog 'harley' was such a sweet pupper and it was a good way to relax by just petting on her!
I pushed the wrong button
It was extremely secluded. Her son came by to make sure we knew where everything was and to finish up some work on the farm. He said if we saw a cow that she just wants us to pet her.
Camping here is wonderful if you enjoy a simple farm life experience! Sarah was a great host, very friendly and welcoming and made sure we had anything we needed. We only stayed one night, but it was very peaceful and we were able to walk around and get to know some of the animals on the property. We especially loved petting the horses and their sweet, excitable cow.
Camping through last minute between long drives and was able to get in at Vermillion Hills last minute. GPS passed 445th ave by 1/4mile but it was easy enough to figure out as she’s the only property out there. We stayed from 8:45pm-8:45am and not one vehicle passed us the entire visit. Secluded! Huge fire pit. Did not see a grate anywhere but we weren’t cooking anyway. Lovely indoor clean bathroom. Friendly adorable dogs I really couldn’t get enough of. Clean yard, no dog poo that I saw. Did not do any of the farm stuff she offers on the site as we were heading out but sure is peaceful out there. Plenty of room for more tents and RVs. Great for larger groups or quickie passers by like us.
Camping with the creatures
Our stay at Sarah's beautiful family farm was nothing short of amazing! Sarah and her family were incredibly accommodating- from toys and stuff for my nieces to enjoy, to even letting us use their wonderful hot tub! There were adorable animals to show love to all over the farm, as well, including quite a few horses, miniature ponies, young lambs, dogs, and even a joyful little cow that played tag with me! The sound out there is a gorgeous serenade of birds and cicadas, and the sunset over the rolling hills is quite a sight to see! I highly recommend making this a stop on your next trip! I know we can't wait to visit again! <3
This place was a true gem and well worth driving a bit off the interstate to experience more of South Dakota farm life. Their family was so generous with their time and shared their many lovable animals including horses and bottle fed sheep. Our kids really enjoyed playing with their kids too. Much appreciated and we hope to be back!
There were good amenities such as having a shower/bathroom. However various members of our party including children and adults had to listen to household members complaining about it, while we were in the bathroom- as the bathroom was right off their kitchen. So it kinda made us want to avoid it if possible. My son did also get kinda freaked out when overhearing an argument between the host and her boyfriend/husband about having campers. The area was beautiful and secluded, the children loved the animals. The fire pit area was nice and there was playground equipment for the kids. Mixed feelings but we did enjoy our trip. Close to an aquatic center with lots for kids and prairie village.
