Camping can be done anywhere on our 170 acres as it suits you. Keep in mind this is primitive camping on raw, beautiful land! The back of the farm is so quiet and peaceful, surrounded by nothing but 2,500 additional acres of nature - not a house in sight. On the back of the farm you are about a mile off of the road, there are gullies to explore, ponds, wild fruits at different times of the year, wildlife, varied terrain and foliage. On 63 of the furthest back acres, of the total 170 acres there is standard barbed wire - this means that wild hogs can and most likely will be on that part of the farm. The balance of the farm is fenced in high tensile net wire and they cannot come on that part of the farm. If the hogs concern you, stay on the front 100+ acres, there are plenty of camping spots in groves of trees and edges of gullies. You will see that the farm is shaped like and "L", all creature comforts, like an outhouse and running water, are on the front 100 acres, the back is completely untouched by human amenities. So, plan to fill up your water jugs prior to heading off to the back of the farm. You may cook and use the bathroom on the back of the farm as long as you clean up after yourself and observe all state safety laws concerning fires. It is your responsibility to check if the county is in a burn ban or not and act responsibly. Within 5 miles of the farm is an entrance to the Brazos river for fishing, swimming or canoeing. You are also welcome to bring a equine and ride, be sure it tethers or you bring a portable corral - the last 40 acres can be closed off so if your equine get's loose, you will only have 40 acres in which to chase it :)>. Please provide a coggins report for each equine from within the last 6 months and a copy of your vaccination schedule as given to each equine. There are cottage on the farm for rent close to the dairy. The cottages are on a separated offering or email us for more information. Private tours of the farm are $50/hr/person. Milking the cows starts at 7:00 a.m. and finishes about 9:30 a.m. and cost $55 total for up to 4 people to participate.
NO smoking on the farm without exception; if you smoke, you will be asked to leave without a refund. You are welcome to have a pet, exercise due caution when walking as our guardian dogs do not understand guests - it is their job to keep all 4 legged intruders off the farm and they often try to discourage visitors; you will be held liable for any and all damage done to the farm, the livestock, children or guardian animals by you or your pet(s). You agree to hold harmless the farm, the owners, the animals and anything associated with the farm if you or your pet sustain injury on the farm. You will be asked to sign a liability release when you arrive as this is a working farm and therefore equipment, domestic animals, wild animals and more in which you may come into contact. Email us in advance to let us know you have a pet, and what kind. One person brought a kangaroo - that was fun!
Please bury excrement and take all trash with you.
We work and live on the farm for our family income. Please respect our land, our livestock, our privacy, our buildings, and our pets.

The vibe at Primitive Camping
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
It was great, we stayed at the back of the property at the watering hole with our two 5 month old dogs. Very quiet and couldn't even see a house or structures where we were located. Horse came and greeted us when we entered the area. Lots of fun!
We really enjoyed the seclusion didn't see a single person while we were at our sight.
Enjoyed hearing the birds, frogs and coyotes.
Had a visit by some cool cows coming to drink from the stock ponds too.
Looks like there was lots of blackberry vines everywhere, bummer they were not any ready to be harvested.
Keep in mind that this is primitive camping with no amenities and you will be good to go.
When coming here I recommend looking to the woodline near the gully or stock ponds if you want to be in the trees like we enjoy. Just be creative and open minded when looking for a place to set up camp.
We have a Mitsubishi Outlander and was able to easily drive to the area we wanted to camp, but if you have a really low vehicle you may have to walk to a good sight just a little.
We would and most likely will return.
We did not see any trash nor did we leave any behind. Please don't litter when camping.
