Private camping, with only one other tent site on the land. It is as if you almost have the whole place to yourself! Share the trail with only the cottagers and the critters. Deer, wood chucks, chipmunks, squirrels and a large variety of birds will share space and time with you.

Under the shady oaks and maples, enjoy a good selection of trees for hammocks. Pitch your tent on the padded area. There is plenty of split firewood for sale on site to use in the campfire ring. A large picnic table is ready for you with easy parking is just off the trail which is located just a few minutes away from the bath house.

The bath house has a roomy shower with plenty of hot water, flush toilet an authentic farm sink with a locking door. The water is potable and safe to use for drinking and cooking. Enjoy deep well mountain water, in fact you are welcome to take some home!. Feel free to hang out on the deck in the Adirondack chairs and enjoy a beautiful sunset or sunrise over the farm. There is electricity available for your devices here.

Pretty basic, and easy we hope you enjoy the simplicity of camping here at the farm.

The Funny Farm is a gorgeous place to stay, and camping there is a nice budget friendly option. There's tons of trails to walk on, animals to meet, and four aiderondak chairs with beautiful farm views to hang out in. But nothing compared to making pancakes in the morning and using the maple syrup made from the trees I slept under. Truly wonderful experience!

Our stay at the farm was perfect. We were driving a long way and needed to stop in PA somewhere for the night. The response was quick, place as described, and though I never met the hosts, they were very accommodating!

Our stay at Kerry and John's farm was fantastic. The camp site is tucked in the woods part of the property and there are some awesome trails to walk on and take your four legged buddy. Having a full bathroom with hot water 100ft away is huge! Definitely recommend staying at the Funny Farm over any state park. It's quiet, beautiful and relaxing. Thank you for an amazing weekend!

Our hosts were very kind folks and we never saw them again after check in. I really appreciated having a bathroom to walk to and one that wasn’t shared with tons of other campers. We took a lovely walk and enjoyed the privacy we had. A nice change from state park camping, for sure.

Wonderfully hospitality. Our host, Kerry came to meet us as we arrived and was extremely helpful. We listened to her recommendations and had a perfect day: a hike and a visit to a local brewery. The Funny Farm was a well equipped private campsite with a fire pit, picnic table and clean bathroom. We would recommend it!

Great camp site. Very private, clean bathrooms, and worth the price. Animals were an added plus, the horse and donkey are very friendly.
