Choose your own rustic, simple campsite on 10.5 acres of sustainable farmland and nature preserve. Enjoy watching chickens frolic in a small fruit orchard or a mix flock of ducks and geese swimming in the pond. Listen to coyotes calling and savor a clear view of the stars at night.

Our farm is home to bees, goats, chickens, ducks, and geese as well as a variety of herbs, fruits, and vegetables. We also have a small pond surrounded by willows and wildflowers. The pace of life in generally slow and quiet.

You'll be able to choose from a variety of spots to pitch your tent, but all are primitive and do not have tent pads. Water is onsite but away from the campsites. Composting toilet is available.

Please note that there are full time tenants that live on site in two RVs and a rental guesthouse. They live near and will share the common playground area. So while you will be the only campers, you will not be the only people on the property.

The easiest spot to camp is near the main house, so you will have the owner nearby. There is a more secluded spot set up a further distance away near the pond. You may camp more primitively than that, but it will be a further distance from the parking area.

Camping with an infant!

We loved tent camping on Sarah’s property. The land is beautiful and once you get closer to the pond, it feels secluded and forested. There is a dry compost toilet in the outhouse and running potable water as well as trash cans for food waste. We also purchased fresh farm eggs from her chickens. Overall, it was a great camping experience for us with an infant.

We wanted a secluded spot where we could have some time away with our two teens. We could pitch our tents anywhere on their property but we went to the cleared out area near the pond. It had ducks and geese, a cat that came by both days we went there, a fire pit with all we wanted to use firewood for $5, and an outdoor toilet in a tent. At night the ducks and geese were put away and then the most interesting frogs croaked all night long. There is also road noise too when sleeping at the pond. If you like it quiet, bring earplugs or be prepared to laugh about it the next day! One funny comment, my 9th grader son who slept in his own tent said that he woke up in the middle of the night wondering who had the bright light on. When he looked out his tent, he realized it was the moon! This is exactly what I hoped for, some time away from electronics and our normal life to do something different and together for a few days. We stayed 2 nights. It was so hot and not a lot of shade for us our first whole day so we ended up driving 30 min to watch Batman at the movies. 😆 We could have checked out the trampoline, hammocks, or the baby goats also on their property- but we didn't. It was nice to see though. My daughter said it was a nice spot because of the animals.

Sarah’s stay was fantastic! It was such a unique experience to be so close to Austin and still be surrounded by nature and animals. Loved all of the ducks, goats, dogs. Would definitely stay again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The first impression upon arriving is of a well tended little Permaculture farm, with beautiful chicken coop and radiantly healthy chickens, great goat corral and very healthy goats and sweet dogs. For a Hipcamper there is available a nice lawn with a fire pit and hammocks and also a more secluded area (w toilet) by a little pond. We made a campfire down by the pond and were thoroughly entertained by the chorus of different frog songs that ensued as the evening went along. Sarah our host was very available to communicate and provide while at the same time allowing us a quiet secluded country experience. It’s nice to know something that farm-like and woodsy is still happening that close to Austin.

We loved our brief stay at SHAMBA! Sarah was a very conscientious host, and checked in with us to make sure that we had all we needed. My 4-year-old got to help milk the goats and pet their very friendly cats. We will definitely return!

Directions to the property were easy to follow and getting settled was a breeze. This was the perfect place for us and our kids as they were plenty entertained by the farm, animals, playscape, and trampoline while I was able to setup camp and cook. Sarah was very communicative, warm, and easy going. She even let us watch her feed the baby goat. The farm is close to enough businesses that if you forgot anything—which we did—you're not out of luck. There are neighbors on the property but they were good a giving us space while being friendly. We got the half dozen eggs which were delicious. We came on a chillier weekend but still had fun. We'd definitely love to come back.

The host was friendly and generous, the land is quiet and private, and the animals are incredibly sweet. Would definitely come visit again, and next time take a class with Sarah!

The host, Sara was very friendly and accommodating. The animals were great and did not interfere at all, if anything enhanced the experience.
I recommend the optional fee for the colorful eggs as they are really delicious and organic.
The toilet was easy to locate and unexpectedly sophisticated (electronic and portable).
We were looking for the most primitive experience which we definitely got although we had to traverse across barbed wire mutliple times. Another option that I recommend is the $5 firewood as this is basically a necessity.
Thank you again Sarah!

Sarah was very friendly and accommodating. Her farm was a wonderful place to sit around the fire and celebrate with our families. Our kids loved playing with the animals, the fun playscapes and trampoline. We will bike back. Thank you Sarah for opening your farm to us
