Pitch your tent in one of several areas. You are a couple minute walk from the farmhouse and parking area. We now have a small lean-to in a nice quiet area next to a brook available. There’s a small cabin available under the listing “Richmond Hills Cabin” -check it out.

There's nearby hiking trail. We are located 25 min away from Mt. Monadnock and there are several lakes within 20 min of driving. We are just over 2 miles from the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail (M&M Trail), off of Old County Rd. The camping areas are private.  We have two running brooks throughout the property that offer nice spots along its banks. Enjoy a nice dip in the cold waters to freshen up. If you want to bathe, please use biodegradable soaps that won't be harmful to the environment.

During certain seasons we have grapes, blackberries, raspberries, peaches, and apples. We raise non-gmo fed pigs and poultry. We have a variety of pork cuts, sausages, bacon and farm fresh eggs available. We have 85 acres of forest, brooks, and open areas to forage from. 

We are next to two wildlife management areas. We have an abundance of deer, rabbits, birds, and occasionally you will come across bear, moose, and other wildlife. 

Our driveway entrance is directly across from a dirt road named "Benson Rd". We have a sign out front that says "Farm Fresh Eggs". Some GPS systems are showing directions to come off of Old County Rd and then onto Grassy Hill Rd. Grassy Hill Rd is an old road that does not access our property. Please use Fish Hatchery Rd only.

The property here is amazing and full of wildlife. I had a great couple nights under the stars here in the woods behind the farm. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good wilderness experience.

We just came back from an excellent weekend at Crooked Creek Hollow Farm. Frank and Cayla have done a great job of creating a diverse, ecologically balanced farm, using natural methods to restore the native species. We arrived in the midst of heavy rains and microbursts which had continued for some time causing loss of power and downed trees in the area.. Nevertheless, the hosts honored our reservation and despite having to work that evening, gave us a detailed tour of the site. It was very fun to meet the pigs, which prefer to be outside in a “pig pile’ and learn more about the benefits of local, pastured raised foods which have far better nutrition than conventional products and we strive to support. We enjoyed taking a swim in the creek on the property, then set up our tent on a flat and well drained spot near a barn. The next day we purchased some of the farm’s pork and eggs, then had breakfast at The Pub in Keene, went for a hike up Mt. Cesar, and stopped in at the Monadnock Co-op. The drive from Boston is fairly fast too.

Our stay at the farm was so so great! Lots of space for multiple tents and great big bonfire spot. The trail to get to the site is a little bit rough for low riding cars but we made it in our minivan just fine! Definitely a really secluded spot that would be perfect for a big group of people with 4x4s, although not necessary it to get there. We also happened to stay just when the pigs had piglets and they were so unbelievably cute and tiny! Ask about fresh eggs and lettuce too! You're staying on a working farm so there's a ton of yummy homegrown options!

Signs will direction you right from the road to your campsite. Would be great for lots of people with multiple cars/tents!Magical little creek runs through just below the site. Nice and sandy too! You're staying on a working farm so there's lots of chickens!

I wanted to take my 4 year old camping, and i wanted someplace private. Because it was just me and my son I was concerned about feeling safe, but I would go back again - I felt very safe. Frank was a great host, and very knowledgable. I would definitely recommend this site.

We spent two days at this property as our base for local hiking and it was perfect. Easy access to Mt. Monadnock, Keene, Pisgah and northern Mass. The campsite is located in a secluded creek-side enclave of the property. The hollow gives a clear opening of the sky, and for us, stars galore both nights.

Frank was a great host / concierge, giving us suggestions for restaurants and activities which were spot on. He runs an organic farm and values the food that he grows; we made sure to buy some before we left.

This was our first exposure to Hipcamp and thanks to our host, it was great!

We loved our site and wished we could have stayed longer. We camped a bit deeper out into the property, at the site with the lean-to, right next to the creek. We were able to drive most of the way out there, and the jaunt up/down the hill with plenty of equipment was no big deal. Host was very friendly and brought our firewood all the way out to the site in his tractor. We ended up buying some bacon, sausage, and eggs from him too. Had it for breakfast and dinner the day afterward -- would definitely recommend.

Wow! What an amazing place to stay! Frank and Cayla were terrific hosts for my wife and I and our two girls (both around 10 y/o). It was the kids' first camping experience, so we were looking for something private, safe and "storybook" like...Crooked Creek delivered! The kids really enjoyed roaming through the woods, playing in the creek bed, and (most of all) meeting the chickens and pigs. We made sure to buy some sausage and eggs to prepare for breakfast and both were phenomenal. Upon leaving, we picked up a whole chicken and prepared it tonight at home - what a difference the free range makes. We'll be back for sure!

First time camping for me with my boyfriend who's been camping numerous times. We had a great experience. We had many sites to choose from which were very private. Frank and his family were very friendly and we even bought meat from their farm!
