Idyllic camping with goats

TLDR: Recommended

Our host Ryan was very helpful and patient in the lead-up to our booking as I inquired several times before nailing down a date. Fast, helpful responses.

The entrance to the farm is pretty nondescript, a gate at the road. Ryan walked out to meet us after giving us the code to open the gate. We parked a little ways away from the campsite but it was no problem to bring our stuff over.

The campsite was inside a pen, with an option to exclude the goats when we wanted to chill, or include them for party time. Chickens were roaming freely but mostly avoided us after we passed their initial inspection. There were roosters next to this pen, who did crow basically all the time (because they're roosters), so we were getting up early. There was a distinct farm animal smell but we got used to it surprisingly quickly and then it was just fresh air to enjoy.

A really big tent and campfire area were provided. When it drizzled on us a bit one morning, Ryan brought us a tarp and helped us put it over the tent, which had been left open for bedtime stargazing. The listing said there is a picnic table but I didn't see it; it didn't come up that we needed it and we didn't ask. The composting toilet was a bit of a walk away, but that's probably for the best for a composting toilet. It didn't have a door but I did see a spot where one could hang a tarp or some such if you didn't want the grand view while on the toilet.

And what a view! Softly rolling grassy green hills, spotted with shrubbery, and a pond in the middle. We saw a couple of cows and heard them mooing in the distance. We also spotted some ducks and geese, as well as wild birds (I saw my first scissor tailed flycatcher). We also saw one skunk, which was lumbering away after spraying Ryan's poor dogs (we never smelled it). Ryan seemed surprised as we were to see a skunk, so I don't think they're regular visitors. Springtime was the perfect time to visit, the whole place was really coming to life with fresh green growth, and of course there are little goats.

We spent a lot of time hanging out with our new goat friends. They're inquisitive, funny, social animals, and it was like a pastoral fantasy to follow them around and sit in the sun with them while they napped. When they all came back closer to evening, the party really kicked off in the pen as the goats explored and played. They're very charismatic.

It was great departure from our normal camping to visit a working farm, and you can tell Ryan cares about his work and his animals. When we left, we were already talking about coming back next year for the next batch of baby goats.
