Pitch your tent or plug in your RV (30 or 50 amp, or 110 volt) on our 110 acre horse farm. Choose between staying up closer to the barns or out in the timber. We have a nice primitive spot under a 100+ year old cottonwood tree that is near a stream. There is a picnic table there as well. About 1.25 mile down the trail from the main barn is a walnut grove with a picnic table.

Pitch your tent or plug in your RV (30 or 50 amp, or 110 volt) on our 110 acre horse farm. Choose between staying up closer to the barns or out in the timber. We have a nice primitive spot under a 100+ year old cottonwood tree that is near a stream. There is a picnic table there as well. About 1.25 mile down the trail from the main barn is a walnut grove with a picnic table. The same stream runs past the walnut grove. There is a spot for a fire too. If you want more rustic, feel free to cross the creek to the timber and choose a primitive camping spot there. Enjoy mowed trails to hike or bike. Water (from hydrants and hoses) and portopotty are up near main barns. We have 60 horses on the farm as well as goats, cats, and chickens. We do not offer access to horses unless you're in a riding lesson, or have scheduled a pony riding session. We look forward to sharing our little piece of heaven with you!

It was raining when we arrived so the host's helper insisted we camp in the barn. My kids loved it! The farm is beautiful.

Great place to stay ! The kiddos ( 2 and 8) loved waking up to the rooster and the horses. Parking for RVs is near the barn but everyone was very respectful of our privacy. It was a quick drive to St Louis Zoo and other attractions without the feel of staying at a RV park. It has a nice pasture view to the front on the property. Our host was generous and allowed us to drive back on their acreage to explore, wildflowers, lots of beautiful horses and a creek. We walked some of the nicely mowed horse trails that were marked with signs that kept us from getting lost. Definitely recommend staying here especially if you have a horse!

This is a very professional and busy horse farm. We had a nice stay. It was fun to watch the horses being ridden and trained.
We didn’t have a chance to meet Marcy in person but the person who greeted us was able to show us everything we needed and answer our questions. No issues.

The campsite was great! The location was secluded but not the best area to get out of when it rains. Marcy was extremely helpful in her directions and the farm is beautiful!

Great camp spot. Be sure to read all the info Marcy posted in the information area.
Has several spots available, all open and by a horse barns. No smells, no weird issues. Gravel and level. Power readily available. No water hook ups, have to fill up camper if you want water by the barn and then go park. Camping spots are located in open areas by barns. Not located by trees or secluded at all. FYI.
BEAUTIFUL property. The back half by the small creek is incredible and if I get a chance to go back I definitely would camp out in the back pasture with our trucks roof top tent. The back primitive site is under a tree so the ground is a little soft back there.
*Couple things to note. If you have a safe way to contain a fire, there aren’t any fire pits by the camping site. We bought a $13 Walmart bbq stove and used that as a fire pit and it was perfect. Also, it can be windy on the property, be prepared for that.
Stores are nice and close and less than a 10 minute drive to Walmart and grocery stores.
Did not get to meet the host, Marcy. Property is a working horse farm and very popular in the area so you do get to see lots of action in regards to horses and such.

A wonderful and quiet spot. RV sites are easy to back into. Not too far from St. Louis. Nice, private and quiet at night!

Easy to find and stay there, though the firewood ordered never arrived. Contact with hosts was all via text and with some lag. Friendly folks there in am working with horses.

Such an amazing experience! We booked late in the evening but our host was able to accommodate us and showed us where to set up camp. The farm is easy to find and quit. We slept in a nice grassy area by the tree line about 40 feet away from the horses. So beautiful and calm, would camp again.
