Pony Hill Glamp is not your typical camping experience. Not only is the site nestled into the middle of a gorgeous organic farm overlooking marshes and aspen groves, but we also supply a beautiful 4 meter, canvas bell tent fully furnished with a full sized bed and linens, a screen tent with a two-burner propane stove, a picnic table, chairs and a few pots and utensils. So all you have to do is show up on the farm and enjoy. Hipcampers will also have access to fresh, organic farm produce, meat, herbs, and more from the farm during your stay! Folks can wander the farm fields, play with baby goats, and even get their hands dirty if they want!

Camping here was like spending a weekend inside of a story book, we hope to return for another visit in the future! Our hosts, Liz and Curtis, were incredibly welcoming. They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable, and fun. They made sure we had all that we needed, encouraged us to freely explore their land, and gave us recommendations of where to go if we wanted dinner in town. The bell tent was well lit with lovely string lights, battery powered candles (all of the ambiance, none of the worry) and a lantern, which made the space feel even more magical at sundown. There were rugs to make the floor of the tent more cozy, wooden crates on either side of the bed to act as nightstands, and a vase of fresh flowers as well. The bed inside the tent was insanely comfortable and the bedding was so soft. There was a breathtaking view of the stars at night, and in the morning we were woken up by roosters crowing and birds chirping, the perfect cue to get the coffee brewing. A gas stove, table, and camp chairs made the perfect spot to have breakfast and listen to the animals. We saw so many colorful birds (I want to say goldfinches, but I'm no expert!) that were diving in and out of the marsh grasses, it was a fun morning show! After the previous day of playing with all the chickens, goats, and sheep that live on the property, and exploring vibrant gardens that looked unreal they so full of color, it was hard to pack up and leave. I can't say enough good things, or recommend this place more highly! :)
We were traveling with our four-year-old to St. Cloud for a wedding and thought it would be more memorable to camp on an organic farm than stay in a standard hotel. Our hosts were extremely welcoming and bent over backwards to help us make it work, accommodating our late check-in, allowing us the use of the farmworker's bathroom to shower before the wedding, and setting up the sweetest little bed for our son. (He immediately claimed it and played at sleeping in it, but in the end slept between us on the comfy queen-sized bed. That was fine--there was plenty of room!). The bell-tent was beautifully decorated, and our hosts had been considerate enough to set up a shade tent next to it with three chairs, a table, and a cook-stove (especially welcome since we'd come with no bug repellant!). The tent was situated on a little rise a short walk from the main farmhouse, which was hidden by trees. It felt very private, and it was lovely to be able to sit there at night surrounded by fireflies listening to the frogs. Mornings were a symphony of bird songs--plus roosters and the occasional goat. We had limited time or I would have loved to talk with our hosts longer about their experience as organic farmers. They seem like a great couple and I highly recommend the place.
We enjoyed staying at the farm! The tent area was separate from the farm for privacy, but close enough for a few minute walk to use the restrooms and visit the animals. Our three-year-old loved the chickens and goats. We purchased some fresh eggs and goat milk to use in our breakfast, and they were delicious! The site came equipped with a separate screened tent with stove and table. It rained half the weekend, and thankfully we were close enough to a larger city (St. Cloud) to take a day trip until it dried up. Bring swimsuits and take a stop at Warner Lake County Park while you’re there. It was a fun time!
Great little farm, wonderful produce for purchase. Perfect for a night or two away from the big city. Experience was as expected, but we would have loved more opportunity to get involved with farmwork though, we kind of felt in the way.
