My husband and I stayed at Ardor Wood Farm this weekend and loved every second of it – it was the perfect escape from the Black Friday madness! The campsite was very easy to find and signs were in place to help us find everything from parking, to the campsite, to the bathroom. There was about a mile of unpaved, very bumpy road before arriving, but we made it without any trouble in our old cargo van. If it has rained recently you may want to call ahead or drive a 4x4.
There are several cleared areas on the property to pitch a tent, but the main campsite is located just a short walk back into the woods. There is a great fire pit and level ground for setting up camp. The entire property is surrounded by beautiful trees, wildlife, and walking trails which are perfect for campers of all ages. There is also a very clean outhouse with an odorless, composting toilet.
This really is a beautiful campsite and Karen was extremely hospitable. We would highly recommend Ardor Wood Farms!
Karen was a great host and our group of four adults and one 2-year-old very much enjoyed our stay at Ardor Wood Farm. There is a great fire ring surrounded by a few secluded sites perfect for pitching a tent. The outhouse was very clean and we were encouraged to roam the property freely, even taking a walk to hang out with their chickens. The property is very secluded but a train does run along the very back of the property so you will hear it roll through a few times each night – not very loud itself but it does get the area coyotes and dogs stirred up for a bit.
We went out to Ardor Wood Farm mid-afternoon and got ourselves acquainted with the glamping tent and property. I will tell you, it was pretty nice to not have to set up and break down camp for a change. The tent has a queen size bed, full bug protection, a dresser, and chair. There is no running water, so make sure to bring plenty of your own. There is a small, clean, outhouse available down the trail near the tent spots.
We spent the afternoon exploring the property, looking at the baby goats, and hammock relaxing among the trees. When it cooled down at night, we played Yahtzee on the porch and just relaxed. There isn't much to do around the area beside hang out, play cards, read and relax. The walking/hiking trails are fairly simple trails with some bird watching. There is a small pond that is good for dogs, wouldn't recommend for humans. So I would definitely recommend the area if you're just looking to get away from Austin and have a simple night under the stars.
This is a great place with lots of room and trails to walk. There is a pond too for dogs to swim. The camping areas were clean and pretty, also there is a compostable toilet which is really cool. The whole ranch is fenced in and private.
If you want a private camping experience 30 minutes from Austin this is the place. The forest and camping spot are beautiful. There is a great fire pit and a bbq table and Karen and Graham are very welcoming. The camping spot is secluded from the farm but you are welcome to walk around, use the trails and visit the animals. They have baby goats! Who doesn't like baby goats :-)
Only a 45/50 minute car ride from Austin. Perfect weekend getaway. Our group enjoyed the beautiful property, being surrounded by wildflowers, their goat and chicken farm, and privately. Karen and Graham couldn't have been better hosts. No question went unanswered before our arrival and we felt very welcomed!
