This a traditional site in the heart of the farm next to the family garden with picnic table and fire pit. It is an open space, large enough to comfortably accommodate 5 tents. There are multiple trees perfect for hanging your hammock in the shade. The compost toilet, adjacent to the site, is shared with another campsite.

This a traditional site in the heart of the farm next to the family garden with picnic table and fire pit. It is an open space, large enough to comfortably accommodate 5 tents. There are multiple trees perfect for hanging your hammock in the shade. The compost toilet, adjacent to the site, is shared with another campsite. Parking is next to our barn about 100ft from the site. Potable water (from a frost-free hydrant) is available about 30ft from the site.

We are 3 miles from Terra Alta, a rural town with a locally owned restaurant and a local craft beer brewery featuring an exciting rotating cast of food trucks. We are 20 minutes from Swallow Falls State Park (MD), featuring Muddy Creek Falls, awesome river swimming and gorgeous hiking in an old growth Hemlock forest.  We are also 20 minutes from Herrington Manor State Park (MD) were there is a lake for swimming, fishing, and canoeing.  Cathedral State Park (WV) a virgin Hemlock forest with 400 year old trees about 45 minutes away.  Deep Creek Lake (MD) is 40 minutes away and offers motor boat rentals, Golf, Skiing and swimming. There is skiing, hiking, biking, tubing, rafting, kayaking and much more to explore withing 40 minutes of our farm. The best white water rafting on the east coast is 20-40 minutes away.

We welcome campers of all kinds!

We began operating our 150 acre farm in 2011 and became the first Certified Naturally Grown Livestock farm in West Virginia in 2013. We raise 100% grass-fed beef, Western and Chinese medicinal herbs. Our family garden supplies more than half of our vegetables and our favorite berries, and our flock of chickens supply eggs and an early morning wake-up call for our campers! There are no GMO's, pesticides, herbicides or fungicides used on our farm.

Farm products are available for purchase on-site. Campers can choose to to have a farm to table meal cooked for them as an extra at checkout. We prepare most of our food from scratch using local produce, meat and bulk organic dry goods. We occasionally make yogurts, noodles, simple cheeses, and fermented foods.

The property is beautiful and Jennifer and her family were lovely hosts. The ground is level and there was easy access to the composting toilet, a picnic table, and the firepit. We purchased dinner when we booked and the home cooked meal was delicious and substantial.

Staying here was incredible! We felt like we had plenty of our own space, but also had Jennifer and family close by if we needed anything. The composting toilet was convenient, and having a hot shower in the morning was amazing. The land itself is beautiful, and waking up to a view of the farm was something we enjoyed. Though we didn't opt for a tour of the farm, we really wish we would have, and will do so next time! Jennifer and her family were great hosts, attentive to anything we might need to make our stay better. 10/10 would recommend!

This campground is so thoughtful. It's tucked away in some trees so you're out of the wind but you can still see the big beautiful sky. There's a picnic table and trashcan, water and a composting toilet.
We were there for only a night, but would definitely come back. It's near to beautiful parks like Swallow Falls.

Staying at PTF with my family and friends was EXACTLY what I was looking. I wanted something that was more “off grid” than the national parks campgrounds, something that had some amenities and was clean, something that was beautiful and not too far away. Possum Tail Farms checked all those boxes. The farm owners were friendly, gracious and love what they do and want every visitor to feel that. I will certainly be back. As a side note, the composting toilet was clean(as far as composting toilets go), maintained well by the owners and the shower was a refreshing bonus after a day of hiking at one the close trails and sites.

Jennifer has developed a great set up, and was a fantastic host. The Farm was a beautiful spot. The outdoor shower was a great addition. This was a great place to take my nieces on their first camping trip.
