Had a great time at the farm, very safe location and plenty to do! It is only a couple minutes from town. If you are around the area i definitely recommend this place, i was doing motorcycle camping and it was a great time to relax. There is plenty of animals that she cares for and all extremely friendly. Definitely would camp here again.
Absolutely recommend for the animal lovers!
So many different species of rabbits, chickens, and the cutest micro pigs and piglets! I absolutely adored this place and Rhinda is so sweet and is so happy to give a tour and tell you a little about each type of animal she has at her petting zoo (seriously so perfect for kids). This is a great place for the beginner campers. Lovely sunset views and not too far from a gas station to fill up on ice or any necessities you'll want to grab before heading out to the farm.
Absolutely amazing! Rhinda was so nice and welcoming! When we showed up, she showed us where to park and gave us the option between a tour and leaving us to set up our stuff. Obviously, we chose the tour and what followed was one of the best parts of our trip. She’s incredibly knowledgeable about her animals and very welcome to us getting to see them and most importantly interact (hold them, take pictures, pet them, etc). I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone who loves animals and the outdoors, it’s not just a petting zoo either! Most of her animals are rescued from kill shelters so knowing that she saved and rehabilitated most of the animals we met makes it so much better! Definitely go support her, it’s well worth the trip
A great place for a bonfire
It was a wonderful place to sit around the fire, however we were looking for a serious outdoor camp and this is not that. The host is very kind and there is plenty of wood. The animals were very interesting.
I wanna go back
She is my spirit animal. And. Such a badass queen #goals. But this site was everything and more. The aninals the view the serenity. Was all worth it i might need to come back for real
Stay if you love animals!
Spot had everything we needed and more. My boys and I had a great time and the host, Rhinda, was so nice! Days later they are still talking about it even though we were only able to stay one night on our road trip. My only reservation is that if you are not fond of animals or would be annoyed by roosters in the morning, this is not the spot for you.
Best campsite ever!
Our stay at Farm Girl & Friends far exceeded our expectations. Rhinda was the friendliest host you could ask for. She even had a campfire set up for us when we got there. My kids were in absolute heaven playing with her animals and could of cared less if we didn’t do anything but hang out at the campsite. The facilities were very clean and convenient, we all enjoyed the outdoor shower. We’re all ready to make a trip back to stay at Rhinda’s again.
Great family camping spot
Rhinda was very nice. It was a great location, close to a lake. There was a nice outdoor shower, firepit, and portable toilet. There's many farm animals to look at. Good place for families. I would recommend it.
