Our latest offering! Brookside Campsite is set back in the woods and stretches along a small brook. The surrounding forest has been cleared and opened up to provide a woodsy feel without feeling claustrophobic! Perfectly spaced trees provide great hammock potential, or just relax at the picnic table while enjoying the campfire.

This site is ideal for a couple with a hiking tent or a young family of up to four people staying in a single tent.

The closest parking requires a high-clearance, four wheel drive vehicle (typical SUV, Subaru Outback, pickup truck, etc.) to get up a small but steep rise, or you can park on the other side of our access road and walk just a bit farther into the site if you have a regular car.

COVID-safe camping. Each of our campsites is surrounded by acres of woods or fields with no other campers nearby. Not only that, but there are no shared facilities - you will be the only ones using your water supply, outhouse and shower (if included with your site). Please let us know if you prefer to have an "online" check-in, instead of the standard meet and greet where social distancing and/or masks can be used based on your preference.

This was our second visit to the Arándano Farm in 10 days. We had such a good time at the pond site last time that we really wanted to try the new site in the forest as well.
We had a blast again. The site is very nice by a little brook and a small hike away from parking. It’s very private with only nature’s noises “bothering” you.
There was fire wood available, potable water, a picnic table as well as a small tent/bucket toilet. It honestly has everything you need to have an authentic camping experience.
Paul is an excellent host and we will be back again.

This camp site made you feel like you were in the middle of no where but really you weren’t to far from your car. Paul was awesome, super nice guy. He brought us dry wood since the wood at the site had gotten wet from the rain the day before and he even threw in a few hard wood chunks for when we cooked over the fire. We will definitely be coming back. The site was a large space, plenty of room to make yourself home for the night.

This was a great experience all in all. We took our 2 year old daughter on the farm tour. It was loads of fun. Paul and Angela were very welcoming and easy to talk to. They take pride in what they do and it shows. The site was clean and well stocked with toilet paper , soap , and firewood. We absolutely plan to come back again next year (probably during the berry harvest this time)

Ps- go check out knowles pond for a little hike / swim. It was 11 minutes away.

Paul and Angela were incredible people/hosts that have created 3 campsites at their farm. The one we stayed at felt private and woodsy yet conveniently located very close to our cars. It had everything we needed, a firepit, wood, picnic table and outhouse and was shady enough so it wasn't hot during the day. We decided to pay extra for the farm tour and we are so glad we did! Paul and Angela gave us (and our 2 year old niece) the lowdown on the farm and their adorable flock of animals (pigs, ducks, chickens and sheep). Highly recommend that you visit Knowles Pond while you are there, you can swim, walk around the pond or just sit by the water and enjoy it. We would definitely go back!

Loved the site! Driving directions were super clear, and we appreciated the provided toilet setup, secure trash/recycling, and buckets for dishwashing, plus firewood and potable water. A few less things to worry about packing. Paul was friendly & communicative, making sure we were all good with set up & providing reccos for our hikes. He cares that you have a good stay! The site felt secluded and private, with a clearing to set up the tent underneath the trees. As solo female campers, we appreciated the comfort of another site on the property a couple hundred yards away.... just within earshot, not a bother at all. Can’t beat the easy shot up 93 to Franconia.... we’ll be back!
