My wife and I took our two young girls to Infinity Acres this past weekend and had an amazing experience. We tent camped by the pond which was very pleasant. Laura and Rick were extremely friendly and helpful. They educated all of us on the wide variety of animals they care for on the ranch and were available at any time. We plan to return in the near future for another visit. Highly recommend to other campers!

What a treat. Laura went above and beyond an animal tour and gave my kids a real zoo keeper experience! This is my kids favorite hipcamp so far. Love the property too, lots of privacy or you can be right in the middle of it if you want.
Thanks Laura, you were a wonderful host!

We truly enjoyed our stay at Infinity Acres. Our host, Laura took good care of us and is very caring for her animals. We had a blast meeting the animals on the farm and had the opportunity to feed some of them. We highly recommend Infinity Acres.

The stay here at Infinity Acres was by far the best experience camping we have had. We camped on campus inside the gate. The Pig, goats (babies at this time) ponies and their babies, and the emu would wander around. Everywhere we turned there were animals. Sitting outside the sounds we’re delightful. Every morning I walked out of our camper to see the Camels a short distance away.

For our family with the tour, this was an amazing experience the hosts Laura and Rick were very knowledgeable entertaining and so welcoming and nice. We will add this to our yearly stops.

We absolutely loved Infinity Acres! Laura, her husband, and all of the staff and volunteers made our experience one we'll never forget. Their love for animals was matched only by their love for taking care of other people. You wouldn't normally think "RV'ing at a zoo" would be something you could do in real life, but they make it happen.

If you book here, make sure to enjoy the morning greeting from the approximately 4,712 puppies (maybe that number's a bit high) that will be ready to love on you. Feed the birds and the kangaroos, walk the llamas and ponies, and have a staring contest with the emu and the camels. Oh, and the pigs and goats love attention, so make sure you give it to them! The Animal Encounter is MORE than worth the extra dough.

If we're ever passing through the area again, we'll be back!

This is great place to come camp. It was more than I was expecting. Laura is an incredible host. We loved the animals and where else can you go and feed a Red Kangaroo a baby bottle?

Laura and Rick are awesome. We had such a great time. Camp site was beautiful including a gorgeous peacock that roamed around. I can't say enough great things about this trip. It was by far the best camping trip I have had. Being around the animals was so cool. You can tell they really love the animals.

Infinity Farms was a wonderful experience for my family. The property is well well taken care of and the owners are genuinely amazing people. The camping site was tidy and cozy. The lawn was well maintained which was perfect for the kids. I would recommend this experience to any nature lover. It’s an extra special experience to be able to camp and see the animals!!

We had a wonderful experience camping with the animals at Infinity Acre Ranch!!! The hosts were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful!! We took our 6 year old grandson and believe me, the memories made will last us a lifetime!! How often does one get to say they slept amongst camels, zebra, llamas, goats, and a donkey? We were able to bottle feed baby goats, a wallaby, a porcupine, fed fruit to a potbelly pig, loved on puppies, walked a llama and a miniature horse. The bird aviary was amazing. Tortoises, a corn snake, huge rabbits, an emu, an owl, kangaroos, and more all on display for your enjoyment! We had a blast during the day and slept in a tent under the stars, enjoying a campfire, roasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate!! Great weekend at the Ranch!!! Thanks Laura and Richard for you hospitality and amazing learning experience!!!
