Love their Great Pyrenees dog, Snowflake! An absolute joy! The alpacas were cute, curious and wandering around the premises which was really fun!
Great family & very welcoming!

We loved our time tenting here! Dave and Jean were wonderful hosts and we had everything we needed. Snowflake and the alpacas made it even sweeter.

We tent camped on Jean and David’a property, and it was so lovely! They offer a very unique and pleasant experience by getting to watch the alpacas and hang out with their incredible dog, Snowflake. We had a great time, the location is beautiful, and we will most definitely be recommending this location to friends. Make sure you take the alpaca and fiber mill tour!

Quiet property, relaxing, and free range Alpacas! And, you get to hang out with Snowflake, the guard dog that quickly accepts you into the pack. If you are a really light sleeper, bring some earplugs, as Snowflake is a working dog 24/7, and won't hesitate to scare off potential invaders to protect her herd, even at 3am.

Jean and David are wonderful hosts. Be sure to book the tour so you can hand feed the young Alpacas and see firsthand how they turn Alpaca fiber into beautiful products. We've been using Alpaca dryer balls for years and their prices are the best.

The free range Alpacas are quiet and will get close to you if you keep your hands in your pockets and stay still. They are beautiful animals. Do it!

The campsite was nice and private. It was fun looking at the alpacas. The problems started as soon as we arrived. I asked that in the event we had to interact with the host that they wear a mask which I was assured would be ok. My MIL got there before me only to have to listen to the host mock me for being covid conscious. I'm pregnant and my daughter hasn't been vaccinated yet since she's 3. Apparently it's "God's country". That was the excuse he used with my MIL. He didn't honor my request for no contact and he didn't wear a mask. The firewood we spent $20 for was not logs but scraps of wood from around the farm. Not worth it. We set up camp determined to make the best of it and actually had a pretty great day. That is until nighttime. The dogs were literally up all night barking. Snowflake was right next to our tent. We got no sleep. We actually ended up having to leave at 1 am. When I say constant barking I truly mean constant. We came back the next morning packed up and left. This is a great place for a day trip if you can get past the lack of covid precautions and the mocking hosts. The alpacas are friendly and so is snowflake, but definitely not a campsite. 2/10 do not recommend.

We do a family camping trip every September, but had trouble finding a place to camp this year. We then discovered Hipcamp, and Camping with Alpacas. We had a great times. Jan and Dave were great hosts. And Snowflake was too fun.
We did make felt sheets and wanted to do some experimenting with the techniques. Dave and Jean were more than willing to let us try different things. They were very gracious and generous with their time. It was all great fun.

Really enjoyed camping with the alpacas. Definitely go on the tour. You will meet the alpacas and learn so many interesting things about how they prepare and use the wool. Highly recommend this experience!

Take to tour to get up close to the alpacas. Lots of chickens running everywhere. They visited us regularly. Lots of alpacas all over the property to watch. This chicken was especially fond of spending time with us.

What a fun and unique trip for our family! Jean and David are such a hardworking and nice couple. We had a great time learning about alpacas. We did the tour and it was really interesting to learn about how the yarn and felt is made. The little shop is cute too and of course we had to grab some souvenirs :) Their dog Snowflake is such a sweetheart and was so kind to our 4.5 year old and rambunctious 2 year old. So neat to have the alpacas roaming around the property. Lots of open spaces for our children to run around on. Definitely recommend!
