Such a great spot with SOOO many great spots (both shady or sunny) to set up camp and enjoy your time here.
The host was so sweet and welcoming with some great amenities available to you to enjoy. Take a kayak to the pond or lounge around on the hammock. You'll find a few ducks, chickens, and house cats roaming around the house. You have so much privacy here with quite a few different trees to identify, blackberries to pick, and campfires to build.
You will not be disappointed in picking this site to camp at!
Mustang was extremely helpful, place was easy to find. Have access to bathroom and showers in her place. Which was very kind of her. The free firewood was clutch so thanks again for that! First time using hipcamp and couldn’t be more pleased. Definitely the only way to camp in the future! Area was close to hiking and nature type activities.
What a wonderful place to spend the weekend! Especially if you have kids. There are lovely kitties around the farm (we even saw some tiny newborn kitties), ducks chasing chickens around, a friendly dog. Plenty of activities, big trampoline, play in the sand or rocks, two kayaks and a pond (there are actually two ponds on the property), some interesting labyrinths in the foresty areas around the farm to explore. Abundance of firewood. Access to the bathroom and shower in the house. This would be perfect if you want a lonesome quite time as well. There’s a hamack to relax, a bench by the pond to read a book. Light pollution in the country side is minimal, so we spent two nights stargazing. Best part is - Shawnee National Forest is 30 min away, but that’s for a different review, it is also absolutely fabulous!
Deaf Barefoot Melange Farm was fabulous. Our family loved staying there. All of the animals provided a much-needed distraction for our active 2.5-year-old. Mustang was an incredible host, and we loved getting to know more about her farm and her life there.
It is a close drive to Shawnee National Forest, which we had the chance to explore during our extended weekend stay there.
The place itself was just as described, serene, beautiful and full of wildlife. Enough shady spots for your tent set up, so if you're on the fence about booking - don't be. You won't regret it. What can be better than laying in a hammock and watching the stars at night? It was a great escape from city life and just what we needed!
We had a wonderful time camping! There was plenty of fire wood for us to use, we found a nice little private spot on the property to set up camp. Hopefully we can get down there again this summer!
Mustang was a great host. She made it super easy for us to you have a great time. Her spots are very secluded and very well-kept. We just could’ve used a little less rain!!!We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.
