Site #1  Pitch your tent on our 6 acre pond surrounded by nature.  This is a very quiet site overlooking the pond.  This site is accessible most of the time by car, it is about 200 yards from the actual barn.  There is no running water at this site and so it is essential that you bring your own containers.  (These may be filled at the tap by the barn, the water is clean, drinkable and is from the same well that the main house uses)    Cook over a fire pit or the grill and enjoy the peace and quiet while watching the wildlife.  This site is accessed via a mowed trail across a wild grass field.  It is accessible by all types of vehicles, but 4 wheel and all wheel vehicles will have a better time navigating when wet, and 2 wheel cars may get stuck.  In this instance it may be necessary in very wet conditions to walk 50 yards to your site.  The site does not flood and the area where you camp is not soggy.  

Site #2   This site is situated in close proximity to the main barn, is is located at the rear of the barn on grass.  This location lends itself to being able to watch the horses exercised but is private enough that early in the morning and at night is is out of site and no one will be walking around your campsite.   It has the added benefit of being close to the animals and also a flushing toilet.  This site is also perfect for someone with a disability since the tent maybe set up very close to the barn for ease of maneuverability.  The aisle way in the barn is all cement, and once the lounge and bathroom area is completed these facilities will be handicap accessible.  

Site #3 This site is remote and is not accessible via a vehicle, the vehicle must be parked in the parking lot and all gear must be carried to this spot.  It is situated on the top of the hill overlooking the beautiful landscape of Susquehanna County.  

Site #4  This site is also remote and is only accessible via a vehicle after the hay has been cut and if it has not rained on the hay field recently.  This spot is also located on the highest point in the area and overlooks the fields and woods.  This site is perfect to watch deer and bird-watching.  

All sites are provided with a table and chairs, fire pit, charcoal grill, tent and a toilet bucket.  (This toilet tent and bucket must be assembled by the camper and taken down upon their departure, and bucket must be emptied.)

In the event of storms, the indoor arena may be used to pitch the tent for a night or duration.  

Pets welcome on a leash.

The farm also a petting farm, with chickens, horses, miniature horses, miniature donkey, dwarf goats, sheep and alpacas, all are friendly.   We also have Scottish Highland Cows, please be aware, they have electric fence on the inside of the metal panels.  We also have peacocks for you to view.  

At the pond are two boats, one canoe and one simple row boat.  These are for everyone's use and are free to use, please be  courteous and share.

In the pond we have Large and Small Mouth Bass, Perch, and Sunnies.  Feel free to fish, but always catch and release the small ones.  Please bring your fishing poles and bait. 

Additional:  Please feel free to visit the animals at any time, but only enter the animals while supervised by a barn employee.  These are therapy and petting animals, but still animals, watch fingers!

Horse back riding and Miniature Cart Driving are available in 1 hour increments, these are for an additional Fee.  The instructor is trained in teaching regular lessons, but also therapeutic riding, and teaching equestrians with disabilities.

We had a great time. We were warmly welcomed and my kids’ MANY questions about the animals were patiently answered. A beautiful, quiet spot.

This place is AMAZING! You couldn't get a better host. The spot was impeccable. The petting farm was icing on the cake. You can feel the positive energy of this place. The Camp was away from the main house and the farm, so it was very quiet.
I will definitely be returning soon.
Thank you Mary for sharing this gem!

This farm is awesome. Mary gave us a personal tour. Animals galore. The campsite by the lake is perfect. The fishing was great. My 7 year old caught four fish and even more smiles.

Superb superb time staying at Mary’s farm. Mary was so kind to greet my group and I (even though we camp at separate times) and showed us around on the farm as well as the adorable animals.

We stayed further from the farm on this patch of land that they mowed out and made available to campers. Right next to a good sized lake with even a canoe. Was about 9 of us and we all had an amazing amazing time.

They even chopped wood for us. Mary and her family are the best and understand how to be great hosts. Would stay here again for sure.

We had such an amazing time here! It was a perfect combination of camping lakeside and hanging out at the farm. I absolutely loved petting all the animals- they were all so friendly and docile! Mary and her family were so welcoming and accommodating. She let us camp out in the indoor paddock our first night since there was heavy rain and strong winds. We had an absolutely wonderful time and can’t wait to go back.
