About The Camp @ Big Head Farm
Big Head Farm is a naturally grown fruit and vegetable farm located less than 1 mile east of Lake Michigan in beautiful SW Michigan. We have a very rustic camping area nestled next to our 10 acres of woodlot. Feel free to explore our 52 acre farmstead, visit with our animals or U-pick blueberries in season July through August.
The camping area is about 1 acre of open grass. We have an on farm market with fresh eggs, u-pick blueberries (in season), potable water, shared shower/bathroom (in our rustic farmhouse) and a fire pit are available. There is beach lake access about 2 miles drive from the farm. We do have an active rail line that runs along the east border of the farm and trains run every several hours.

What Big Head Farm offered to me was relaxation. It’s such a peaceful farm surrounded by blueberry crops and friendly farm animals. It wasn't hard to pitch the tent as the grass was smooth and there was trees around to also put up our hammock. They also provide a picnic table and bathroom which is always a big plus. This place had everything we needed, it’s in a good location not far from Lake Michigan and great restaurants. We enjoyed our stay here and had a great time with all the farm animals. Definitely recommend to everyone who wants a little piece of relaxation.
Pick Blueberries till your belly is full! Camping in Big Head Farm was so relaxing, her farm animals were some of the friendliest, especially her donkey named Cherry Pie :) Loves to be petted. Camping here was lovely, beautiful property, people and animals.
Beautiful, sprawling property and a wonderful host! Can't wait to stay again, pick more blueberries, hang out with the animals, and fall asleep to the sounds of nature. And all just minutes from downtown St. Joseph!! Perfect overnight experience.
I am a first time HipCamper. My friend and I came to Michigan for a short trip away and we're intrigued by the idea of camping on a farm, especially after seeing the lovely photographs listed on this page. There was lots of good firewood available, though it took us a bit to find it (behind the white barn). While we loved that the campsite was close to everything and very peaceful, we were disappointed that the host never greeted us. The bathroom was also not incredibly tidy and it was close to the cat litter box. Overall, while a good price point and nice location distance wise, this was not our favorite experience.
