The Sweetwater Farm is a property of Experience Learning, a non-profit outdoor education organization with the mission of developing effective community members through beyond the classroom outdoor learning opportunities for children and adults.  When there is no programming occurring, we offer primitive tent camping, tent camping with amenities, and an electric hook-up for an RV on our 600 acre farm.  Parking, as well as amenities including a full service kitchen, bathrooms, and shower facilities are available at the Sweetwater Farm Community Center.  The pasture in the valley campsite is located in a large pasture just a short walk across the road from the Community Center.   The remoteness of the area offers plenty of privacy while the openness of the campsite offers great views of the surrounding mountains and fields.  

Karen and Mike, the farm caretakers, live a short walk up the road in a white farmhouse with their young daughter and two big friendly dogs.  The farm is home to several beautiful gardens as well as pigs, chickens, and cows.
