We thank Brian who is an amazing host for all he did for us! We arrived there pretty late, the campfire was already waiting for us. He installed a camping shower with camping restroom tent, a large canopy and the light that was using electricity from his portable generator. The camping area is gorgeous, nice and clean, the orchard is amazingly beautiful! Brian gave us to try his own natural apple juice which was just wow! We all loved the place and had a very great and unforgetable time. We would definitely come back there!

HIPCAMPERS, STAY HERE! Papa's sweet corn farm is the dreamiest setup ever. We felt like we were staying on a private vineyard-feeling farm, with a perfectly manicured yard just for us, surrounded by rows of apple trees. Even though we were set up along a quiet road, we didn't mind at all because Brian has made the perfect secluded area just for us. A giant tree spreads out across the yard and makes it feel like a jungle of perfect hammock hanging branches and I imagine this site would be perfect for a family with kids as there was even a teeder-todder built into a tree! Clean, quiet, beautiful, we wanted to stay for an entire weekend and just relax.

Great Quiet piece of land, mostly left alone which is what we requested. Nice and closer Beloit, WI. He even had a popup 4 us... thanks for the corn, quiet place and firewood.

Had such a wonderful night at Brian’s farm! The property was so beautiful- horses, corn fields, an Apple
Orchard, green grass and shady acorn trees. Brian and his wife were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed including firewood, tiki torches and some fresh apple juice from the farm. Very safe, private, and relaxing. Would definitely recommend it to anyone needing an escape from the city or a place to pitch a tent for the night!

Bryan and his wife were awesome hosts!! The camp site was very level and clean and we felt safe there. They were great in pointing out things to do in town and restaurants to eat at. They gave us corn to try and it was very good and sweet. We will definitely be back there again!

We booked the day of, so unfortunately we did not get to meet our host, however he responded a few hours after we arrived to make sure we found the site. We really enjoyed the fallen tree for hanging our hammocks—our cat enjoyed climbing them as well! Very private and the Orchard was beautiful at sunset! Wish we could have had more time to explore the grounds and would definitely recommend staying here.

This place is really special - beautifully maintained lawn for campers with toilet and plenty of firewood. Brian was so generous and allowed us to help ourselves to sweet corn and apples. If you're looking for a super-peaceful getaway not far from the buzz of Chicago, this is a must visit!
