Camping at Congress Hill Farm was lovely experience! Your campsite will be a very private spot located far back in their woods, next to a stream, and right across from a large goat herd. The goats are hilarious, but a little shy. There are also race horses boarded on the farm who don't interact with guests much, but are still beautiful to look at!

This farm is still ironing out details for campers, and there are some things to be mindful of. Such as the fact that the campsite is about a 15 minute walk from your car, the bathrooms, and main part of the property. They do have someone with a golf cart help you bring all your camping gear back and forth, so that's helpful.

Other than that, there also a gazebo/ lounging/ picnic area, a small playground, and endless opportunity for exploring the property and walking trails :)

Tent set up at the edge of the forest.Pretty horse.The gazebo/ picnic area is about a 5 minute walk from your tent site.  Such a cute spot for lunch!Seriously, there' soo many of them... :P

Great place to stay if you want activities. The playground and zip line was fun for our kid and friends. We dipped in the creek and walked around to visit the goats and horses. There is also a very clean and air conditioned bathroom a nice walk from the campsite. The site also has a fire pit and storage container for your food, that was super helpful. We brought our own grill but they did mention they are adding grills. The staff was super friendly and we felt very comfortable. We had the privacy that we hoped for and some comforts. Check this place out!

Enveloped in the Woods was a great camping experience. You enter this big farm with horse stables for riding and racing horses and the camp site is in the beautiful woods beyond that. There is a sandy path that winds through the woods, past a cool small ropes course and play ground, pastures, a stream, and a pretty gazebo, to the perfect camp site. In the morning, the beautiful racehorses are jogged right past the campsite, which was really cool to see, although some of the riders were shocked that we were there and asked us to stand perfectly still as they rode by so as not to spook their horses! At night there were fireflies everywhere and it almost looked like a fairy disco. The check-in and check-out times are extremely generous (9am check in and 3pm checkout) so we got to spend lots of relaxing time there. A couple of things, we were told the host didn't communicate to anyone at the barn that we were coming so it took a while to get someone to take us to the campsite and also the water for the bathroom wasnt turned on so that took some time as well. Luckily, two wonderful ladies who work and board horses there helped us out and even gave us some veggies from the garden! This is an amazing place that must be run by very special people. You can tell that a lot of love goes into keeping this place beautiful, caring for the animals and the land, hosting happy kids when the have camp and riding lessons...we were so appreciative to have gotten the chance to spend a weekend here!

My husband feeling exuberant in nature!Nice cool shade from the treesBeautiful sandy path around the woodsGreat fire ring and stump chairs at the campsite

This is a wonderful campsite! The place trains harness racing horses, and breeds them. Anyone can watch the horses train for races everyday. Every horse gets his daily required amount of exercise, no negotiations. A huge goat farm. Horseback riding on the kindest of horses. (The horses are nice because they are treated nicely.) It is a one of a kind campsite. You will never see another campsite as nice as this. The owners and family and staff make all this possible and are very serious about their campers enjoying their stay with them.

Sites were beautiful, clean and secluded. Host was very hospitable. Great family friend spot with a large jungle gym for kids but with out the crowded RV site feel you find at most family places. It is close to a true camping experience as you can get with out backpacking into the woods. I would recommend this site to friends trying to get away.

My family and I camped overnight last night and we really, really loved it. Jeremy was an awesome host and helped us feel very welcomed! When we arrived, he gave us a ride on the golf cart around the loop in the woods, which included an awesome playground area AAAAND a pit stop to see a huge group of 80 goats who ran over to us when Jeremy yelled MEEEHHH at them. It was really so incredible and we appreciated Jeremy's hospitable nature.

The site was clean and beautiful, with a hammock and fire pit. We were at one of the closer campsites which was only about a 5 minute walk to the bathrooms. Our four year old son really loved seeing the horses at the farm and the staff were all very welcoming as well - one staff person offered to have our son pet the horses as they walked by and it was so sweet! This was really one of the best camping experiences we've had and we've already begun to recommend it to our friends and family. You can totally tell how much care goes into everything this farm does and it's a special thing to be able to stay overnight here!
