For car campers or people sleeping in their car, really great. Someone even showed up and slept in their Fiat (how, I don't know). If you are a real camper who is wanting anything wild or remote, it's really just a fenced in front yard. No hammock trees or posts so if that's how you camp, be prepped for it. No shade either, side note. We did the animal experience and just seeing the animals was really cool. I mean, where do you find a kinkajou you can meet in person. Hilarious macaw. Several general stores nearby, those are always awesome. Close to several key adventurous woodsy stuff in the mountains.

My wife and I loved camping on Kimbers farm! We got to meet her horse and donkey as soon as we arrived. Kimber(the host) is very friendly and accommodating. We easily found a nice level spot to park our van in the camping area. We had a campfire and looked at the fireflies and stars. We did the animal tour and we absolutely loved it! All of the animals were friendly and we loved making friends with them. It was a unique camping experience that we would highly recommend

Gorgeous views, close to the National Park & a beautiful drive to Gatlinburg or PF. It was nice to have the fridge/freezer & kitchen area as an option when we didn’t want to cook outside. My daughter loved the animals & didn’t want to leave.

Kimber's property was lovely! Stunning sunset plus the added bonus of getting to be around animals. Also, in close proximity to the Smokies which is helpful if you're hiking, running, mountain biking, etc like I was. Lovely stay and lovely host!

Kimber's farm is amazing! Between the mountain vistas and animals you will not be disappointed. There's sufficient firewood for those that enjoy an evening sitting around the Fire-Pit. This place is a keeper!

Nice grassy field to camp in. I loved that we had access to the basement of the house that had a kitchen and bathroom in it. It was so nice to come back from hiking and be able to shower. Not super fancy, just had cement floors but a much appreciated extra amenity while camping.

The stay was wonderful and Kimber was a pleasure! Meeting all the lovely animals was a real treat and we will never forget. The only downside was the lack of shade in the camping area, but that wasn't too big of a deal considering we weren't around in the day anyway. We would definitely camp here again, especially because of the location and the amenities provided by Kimber (hot shower, drinking water, kitchen). We look forward to meeting again!
