NOTE: If you are in the area for any type of hurricane recovery and relief, we are charging only $1 per night for recovery workers.
***We do have some damage from Hurricane Michael and are in the process of recovering and rebuilding, so we are a bit messy right now!
If we are showing booked for the dates you would like to visit us, please drop us a message. Often the calendar here conflicts with our listings on other sites and we can probably fit you in!!
Come spend some time with the goats at Goat House Farm (and the chickens, ducks, and a pig!).
We are a located in a rural area of Tallahassee, along the Florida Big Bend Scenic Byway and surrounded by the beautiful Lake Talquin State Forest. Great fishing and hiking trails and beautiful sunsets. Two Trailwalkers and one Trailtrotter trails are just minutes away. There is also a 10-mile Lines Bike Trail. See trail maps in our photos!
We are located at the end of a 3/4 mile dirt road off Highway 20/Blountstown Hwy on the lake. We are about twenty five minutes from FSU stadium - straight shot!
We have a tent site #1 near the goat nursery (that you may sometimes share with new kids!), site #2 along the forest easement (this is closest to the bathhouse and laundry), and site #3 on the edge of Lake Talquin State Forest looking over the lake (this one is a short trail from the main property). An extension cord can be run to sites #1 and #2 for electric if needed. Dogs are welcome at all but site #1 and off leash is fine as long as they don't chase animals along the fence!
We provide water, wifi, laundry, fresh eggs and milk, and fresh fruits and veggies for the picking when available. Farm fresh breakfast and coffee or tea delivered to your site in the morning (let us know if you are vegetarian or vegan). There are also two kayaks available for use. Fire ring, camp stove, and communal fridge for ice available.
We have a small bath house with hot shower and a composting toilet. Soap, shampoo, conditioner, and fresh towels provided.

The vibe at Goat House Farm Camping & Breakfast
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
You'll probably want to start a goat farm of your own, or just take a couple of the baby goats. Well don't do all that but make sure you snuggle all of them! The lake is a BEAUTIFUL spot to pitch a tent or even ENO for the night. You have plenty of privacy and plenty of firewood if needed. There's also a little shed in the back yard that the owners have set up to your convenience - a fridge, hot plate, and washer/dryer is provided to keep your travels going smoothly!
We had the best time camping at the goat house! Highly recommended! Melissa and her from helpers are incredibly welcoming and generous, her property is gorgeous (I recommend walking the trails in the state forest), the sunsets and stars can't be beat, and the goats are a riot. We were lucky enough to be there the day a baby goat was born - it was so precious and cuddly. The pig is also a hoot! And with access to laundry, wifi, power and potable water, this place truly is a gem!
Melissa was a fantastic host. An amazing property with privacy and access to the water. My dog loved it here. We hope to have a chance to stay again. Couldn't have asked for anything more.
Melissa waited up for us until 10:30pm with a warm welcome and gifts!! The goat farm was so much fun and we got the chance to meet and play with all of them! But that’s not all.. more pleasant suprise-friends are on the farm too but we won’t give it all away. Highly recommended and will definitely come back. Complimentary farm fresh breakfast blew our minds, are you kidding!? Much love to you Melissa and everyone down on the farm. We are well rested and ready to continue our trip. Kayaking on the agenda next time!
What a terrific time! We were spoiled- Melissa made us feel right at home and kept us fed. Loved that she told me about local lore of the plantlife and the history of the farm :) Would definitely visit again!
I went to the Goat with my two grandchildren who are 16 and 13. We loved being with the goats, pig ,ducks and chckens, dog and cats. We tried to learn all 34 of the goats names.
Although it rained a lot we have many happy memories and would like to go back again. The camp is rustic and inviting
