Pitch your tent at the Button Farm, nestled in the midst of Seneca Creek State Park. Enjoy the gardens and fields, or head into the woods for hiking or biking on over twenty miles of trails that intersect the farm. We are located in Montgomery County's Agricultural Reserve--conveniently close to Washington, DC, but we feel like we're a world away from city life. We are a working small farm, so do expect the occasional hubbub from our geese and our rooster Monty will start crowing at the break of dawn (consider him an alarm clock to make sure you don't miss out on a full day's fun).

The vibe at Button Farm

We spent one night at the beautiful Button Farm and enjoyed every moment of our time there. The farm is large and calm and conveniently located between trails. Steven who greeted us on arrival was very kind and helpful. The portapotty was the cleanest I've ever seen. Looking forward to coming back.
This is a great place to camp near Seneca Creek, and there is plenty of privacy and space--we were the only campers there on a holiday weekend! On the property they have heirloom chickens, geese, and pigs, and the fields abut hiking and mountain-biking trails. Highly recommended and a very short drive from DC!
Button Farm is absolutely beautiful. From the moment you drive thru the gate you will experience peacefulness. The grounds are beautifully maintained - the areas to camp are mowed impeccably, the picnic tables and fire ring are in great condition. The port potty has a privacy fence around it for extra privacy and it’s very clean.
There are two areas for you to camp wether you choose a tent or vehicle camping. The first is around the fire ring. This area is closer to the ports potty and the picnic tables. There is enough room for several campers at once. The second camp spot is way far out in a field! It’s gorgeous! You can drive a smooth grassy lane out thru a wide open space with knee high grass on both sides. The lane will take you out to your own private circular area with a fire ring. There is also access to 20+ miles of trails as part of the Seneca Creek State Park. Trails are color coded but be sure to make a copy of the trail system before heading out. Also, as soon as you enter the farm at the gate, there is a trail that literally crosses the grassy driveway. I saw a biker crossing as I was leaving!
Steven, your host, is super friendly. He gave me a quick tour of the place and then left me to explore! There are geese, chickens, and a beautifully maintained heirloom garden. This property is only 15-20 minutes from the heart of Gaithersburg, but literally feels like an entirely different world.
Book this place, you will LOVE it!
We had a great time—perfect spot for a first campout with kids. Enjoyed the serenity and privacy of the big field, hikes easily accessible, nearby portapotty, and fun farm animals to visit. All the folks there are great—very friendly and helpful. Looking forward to coming again!
