This is a remote camp site within proximity of a private pond. The meadow trail is partly wooded with good visibility during the day, headlamps for non moon filled eves. Mountain bikers will like the trek to camp appeal of this untouched slice of nature. Birds and butterflies abound. Fireflies may be too bright at night. Bullfrogs, fish and waterfowl your only neighbors.

*mosquito spray goes without saying ( I'm assuming this is a theme=Michigan Summers)

This is best suited for bicycle campers, or those willing to walk in (10 min to vehicle, parking area behind Art Barn.)

Our first stop on our trip up the coast of Lake Michigan. Fire Fly Cove was nestled among the trees in a mowed area of grass. We found a nice cushion of moss to pitch our tent on. Christine was very friendly and the property was beautiful. A short drive from downtown Saugatuck, it was a cheaper and more exciting alternative to staying in a hotel.

Had access to a toilet and a nice, refreshing, cold shower in the morning. The barn was filled with quirky objects and art supplies to flex your creative muscles. A memorable stop on our trip!

The only problem we had was the firewood quality was less than ideal (large, damp pieces). You might be better off bringing your own if you'd like to have a fire OR you could ask for an axe to chop off some smaller pieces.

Overall a great, unique experience. Would recommend.

A very beautiful property! Christine was very accomodating and even offered for us to use her golf cart to haul our gear to the campsite. And if you get a chance, go check out Douglas and Saugatuck. Both awesome little towns!

We had a good time here. Nice private place but not worth $50/night. Don't expect much contact from anyone. Never saw another person while we were there and we had minimal direction from the host. We managed to find a working toilet but no shower. Bring lots of bug spray and water and you'll be just fine. Dont expect a conventional camping experience.

It's too bad you missed the artisan roasted coffee beans roasted on site and the shower, all in the same area as the bathroom. There's 20 acres here to explore, I'm typically in my art studio and always available by txt or phone. You're certainly right on about the unconventional nature of art farm fennville. At least we agree on something.

Christine is a wonderful host. The property is quirky and fun. It's close to both Douglas and Saugatuck. The area where we were placed was somewhat wet and the mosquitos were terrible. We moved our hammocks to another spot and the experience was much improved. Deep, deep woods OFF!

The art farm was as beautiful and peaceful as a campsite can be. A great place for stargazing and bonfires with good company!

This was the first time we ever used hipcamp. We were in a pinch and could not find a campsite anywhere for the weekend so we decided to try it out. We were fortunate enough that Christine was kind enough to accept our stay even though it was last minute and a little late! The art farm is beautiful with a lot of beautiful artwork, two ponds and a lot of space to enjoy. It is also in a great location as it is a short drive to many fun and interesting locations. Christine is very friendly and welcoming. The second night we were there she had a big bonfire and we got to enjoy meeting and conversing with many interesting people. We really enjoyed our stay and hope we will be able to come back again!

Very beautiful property with some great spots to pitch a tent and have a campfire. Christine and her son RC were wonderful hosts, super inviting and helpful. Quick drive to Douglas, Saugatuck and downtown Fennville. We’d definitely come back!
