Erin and Angela are the hosts of Hawkwood Farm and they were such a treat to meet! They've got a gem of a property located in the Catoctin mountain range. As soon as we pulled up we got excited. It's well maintained, full of nature and historic Be sure to read the small packet they give you upon arrival to learn more about the past at Hawkwood Farm.

On site you'll find a pond, a dog named Sawdust, a couple of geese and a cat named Turtle. There's also a blacksmith shop, a woodworking shop and a jewelry shop! Erin is a full-time maker and welcomes you to explore the property!

We found a sweet spot to park our van up on the outer circle of the Meadowland. It's on a little hill and looks down upon the farm. It's far enough away from the main house that you have tons of privacy and has a picnic as well as a fire pit. The land was level and flat and there was plenty of space for us to choose from. In addition to the Meadowland, there's a second site near the pond that campers can pitch a tent. It's also level and is bordered by some really beautiful woods.

As far as attractions go, there are mountain biking and hiking trails a little over a mile east as well as access to the Appalachian Trail only about 6 and a half miles away. A tad further is Cunningham Lake State Park (14 miles) which is a great spot to cool off in the summer.

We highly recommend this place as one to visit and stay at if you're looking for a private, relaxing, cool place to camp in Maryland.

Look at all this space!The property here is lovely.New favorite snack: PB and Strawberries.The pond is another lovely spot to choose for camping.

Angela and Erin were very inviting and extremely friendly. I must say the pictures of the campsite looked amazing but they do this site no justice. The property was spectacular so peaceful, and plenty of trails to hike. Erin greeted us and led us to the campsite, he provided us with a very detailed map of the grounds that laid out all the trails and places of importance. He also provided us with some fire starter wood. The directions were spot on. I will definitely be staying there again.

I can't explain how wonderful this experience was. Secluded, clean, open, beautiful... Erin met us when we arrived, showed us to the site, and gave us a little background of the area. He was super friendly and made us feel welcome!
I wish we could have stayed longer but it was just what we needed. Give this place a chance because we know we will be back for sure!

The site was beautiful, as was the surrounding farm land. Angela and Family were wonderful hosts, and we had a great time. I highly recommend the Meadowland site if your looking for a place to escape. It would also be great for a larger group trip.

We had an awesome night camping at Hawkwood farm! The property is gorgeous, and we loved seeing the horses on our way up to the meadow where we camped. Watching the sun set as we hung out by the campfire was incredibly peaceful, and the friendly horses on the walk to the outhouse were a total bonus. Most of all Angela and her husband went above and beyond to welcome us- this was my first time hipcamp-ing and my first time camping alone with my 2 little kids, and not only did they show us around the campsite and enthusiastically invite me to text them if we needed anything at all, Erin let us take a peek into his blacksmith's shop, and even snuck two handmade wooden chess pieces into the bag of kindling he gave us. A completely magical place to stay.

We enjoyed a peaceful night in the meadow. Besides the Hawkwood Farm house and another house nearby in the woods, this is a secluded, quiet spot in a pretty meadow with forest surrounding it. There is plenty of space to put multiple tents with a picnic table and a fire ring. The privy is short walk away. I'd definitely come back as the spot is ideal and Angela and Aryn are great hosts!

This site was amazing. It was private, with lovely hosts, and quick access to many outdoor activities. Would 100% recommend this place. Views are incredible and the hosts have a fun farm that kids will love exploring.
