Park your RV in our woods or fields on our 122 acre organic heirloom vegetable seed farm. Plenty of space for great hiking opportunities and privacy. 12 minutes or less from downtown Ann Arbor. If requested in advance or if we have time, farm produce is for sale and farm-to-table meals can be arranged in advance. Please request these before arriving and we'll see if we can accommodate you. We also sell fruit trees and vegetable seeds. We are an organic farm so it's very important to practice proper sanitation and not to leave your waste here on our land (no foxholes).  Additionally, there is a truck stop just 1/2 mile away with showers and bathrooms.  We have bundles of firewood for sale for $10 or for larger quantities it's $25/quarter face cord or $100/facecord.

RV Site 1 is our only RV camping site and is close to the farmstead.  It has electric access and non-potable water for washing.  It has a great view of the sunset over one of our hay fields.  It has firewood for sale. At your request, we can provide a table and chairs. It's also very close to the portapotty.

MIchael is a wonderful host and his farm a beautiful spot. I also purchased some incredible organic tomatoes and greens that he had waiting for my arrival. The farm is minutes from Ann Arbor. Highly recommend

We booked 2 spots with Michael for our RV's. Although the ground was very wet due to all the rain we've been getting, he has able to find us a suitable spot to park on his property. Although it wasn't where he normally puts campers, it was still very enjoyable. We were able to have a fire and take walks along his trails through the fields and woods, which the kids really enjoyed. Also, our dog was able to join us, and she got along very well with Michael's dog, Kiwi.

We had the area to ourselves, and it was very beautiful landscape to wake up to each morning!

This was our first hipcamp experience and it was amazing. The farm is gentle and rolling. Michael the host has a knack to make you feel comfortable right away. They are great stewards of the land. We were able to watch the sunset, build a fire, and enjoy the fireflies. We would love to return.

We were looking for a secluded COVID safe site to use when we brought a family member down to UM Hospital for surgery. This fit the bill nicely. Very quiet. Only two campsites. And very convenient to the hospital.

Delightful, peaceful, restorative. We wish it hadn't rained, because the view of the starts from the farm's field would be heavenly. Wonderful land, and the host was just present enough to let us know his support, and still allowed us complete privacy. We plan to be back.
