We created the Sunrise Shelter as your getaway on our organic farm. We built a three-sided shelter with a platform, so have a shady, dry place to roll out your sleeping bags, hang your hammock (we have hooks), or pitch your tent. The shelter is in the woods and faces east, so you'll have a view of sunrise through the forest, right from your sleeping bag. You'll have your own campfire ring and picnic table, and potable water and composting toilet are less than a minute walk away. Your parking spot is about 100' from the shelter. 

The Sunrise Shelter is located just behind our 1800's barn, so you'll have a sense of privacy - and, depending of the time of year, baby chicks for neighbors. There's limited cell service here at the farm, so you can unplug; the frogs, lightning bugs, and woods will keep you occupied instead!

Our Farm (Nightfallfarm.com) is a sustainable livestock farm, where we raise animals on pasture and sell meat and eggs locally. There's lots to explore here at our farm: see our pigs, chickens, turkeys, and lambs; walk in our woods and restored wetlands; or stroll along the Muscatatuck River. 

We can add on a casual farm tour where kids of all ages can hold a chick, see the animals, and learn a little about how we are bringing our family farm to life.

Our farm is about 20 minutes from fun, family-friendly paddling options and easy hikes at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge and Hardy Lake State Recreation area (bring your kayak or canoe!). It's about a 30 minute drive to our favorite hikes at Clifty Falls State Park and Jackson-Washington State Forest, where you can find steep hills and hollers, excellent views, fossils, creeks, and waterfalls. 

The farm is easy to find. We're about an hour drive from Louisville or Indianapolis, and we're just three miles off of Interstate-65.  If you're coming from Cincinatti, it's a lovely drive through the hills of southern Indiana.

We had an incredible stay at Sunrise Shelter! The directions were perfect and Liz and Nate were amazing hosts. Even though the weather was a bit of a bummer, we stayed nice and dry under the shelter for a relaxing and chill weekend. We will be back!

I highly recommend the sunrise shelter on Nightfall Farm. My partner and I were warmly greeted by Liz, Nate, and their very friendly dogs. The site was well-equipped with a compost toilet, potable water, a designated parking spot, and a campfire! The shelter was private and spacious.

We took a tour of the farm and learned so much about what it takes to raise animals sustainably. And after checking out, we drove up to Upland's Columbus Pump House and were delighted to find Nightfall's pasture-raised chicken on the menu! We'd recommend the sunrise shelter to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway.

Sunrise shelter was a fantastic place to get away & relax with nature. We loved being surrounded by lush green forest, a clear night sky & waking up with the birds. I'd definitely check out this spot again! Big thanks to the hosts for the hospitality!

Thanks a ton, Brittany! So glad you liked waking up to their birds singing - that's one of our favorite parts of our farm. : )

Nightfall is a working farm, so there are animals of all varieties, but because of the way Liz and Nate are cultivating nutritious soils, there are so many insects and they make a lot of noise. It took some getting used to, but it was one of the lovelier aspects of the trip. In addition to that, I got to enjoy time by the fire, stargazing in a very low light-pollution area, and farm fresh eggs. 10/10, would visit again.
