Pitch your tent creek-side near our working year round vegetable farm. Bordered on two sides by beautiful West Fork of Drakes Creek in Franklin, Ky. To expand our current farm operation we have newly acquired 84 acres which we are transitioning from commodity crop to organic vegetable production. The farm has several wooded areas you can lose yourself, star gaze in the meadows or relax in the shade of the mature trees. Explore the reeds and cat tails in a kayak or hike the trails. Though you may want to just stay around your camp site, Little Bent Farm is a short distance from Nashville, TN and Bowling Green, KY and Franklin's historic downtown is minutes away. Wildlife is abundant on the farm, white tail dear, wild turkeys, bald eagles are common. even, beavers make an appearance from time to time. We want our guests to have a pleasant experience while at the farm; free to explore the surrounding woods, fish or kayak the creek or just spend the day watching nature happen. Whatever you fancy, we're here to help make your stay a pleasant one. If you've ever wondered what farm life is like, you may have the opportunity to experience it first hand if you wish. A Communal picnic table & fire ring is on-site with plenty of space between designated campsites. Seasonal produce and farm fresh eggs are available to our guests.

The campsite at Little Bent farm is a piece of paradise! Highlights included the plentiful fire wood, Lightening bugs and brand new Outhouse. They even put a little bouquet in there! While there we spotted deer, bunnies, and were sung to sleep by the riverside critters. Robert was a gracious host as he helped us transport our belongings to the site since it was a short walk from the parking area. Would return in a heartbeat!

The campsite was absolutely perfect! We were warmly welcomed and they were very accommodating, taking our gear down to the campsite with the UTV. The site had a fire pit and lots of cut logs and sticks for a fire, a large picnic table, nice flat open area to set up the tent and a view of the river. The fields and the site were filled with fireflies glowing at dusk and the sounds of the frogs put us to sleep. There is an outhouse, and let me just say I have used a lot of these through my camping experiences, this is by far the cleanest and cutest outhouse I’ve ever seen! We plan to stay here again, 10/10 recommend.

Absolutely LOVED my stay at Little Bent Farm. The host, Robert, was super helpful with directions and getting my gear to the campsite. We brought our dog along and really loved the spot by the water. The best part though was the hand built outhouse! So cute and clean. I was thankful for the hand washing station too. Would definitely stay here again and suggest to anyone looking for a cute, unique place in lil Franklin, KY.

The campsite at little bent was just what I needed for a short get away. The campsite was nestled in a little cove of beautiful mature trees and had a great view of the farm’s fields. Just a short walk away is a super cute, convenient, and clean outhouse. Robert was an excellent host! He met me there when I arrived and drove me and my gear to the site. He was helpful, and kind. I am already planning on camping here again with my kids!

My friends and I had a fantastic time at Little Bent Farm! Robert was a great host, and the site was clearly marked with handmade signs that made it easy to find. This is a very peaceful site with several species of frogs that’ll sing you right to sleep. There are also several perfect spots to hang hammocks along the edge of the creek! We were able to set up all three of our small tents on the open, level ground without feeling cramped at all. I definitely recommend this hipcamp!

Our stay here was great! The view was amazing and the hosts were friendly. The only thing was, trying to get down to the creek was difficult, couldn’t take our car to campsite, but should be remedied within the next year.

Robert was incredible, so helpful and kind. The site is beautiful, large and spacious and so shady! Great view of the creek and the farming areas. Excellent amenities with a prep table, picnic table, fire pit all set up and ready to go. The supplies of water and firewood were awesome, though you can also reup both easily if needed. We will definitely stay again, even though only a few miles from our home!
