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.

Wild and wonderful!
We had a fantastic time!! We wanted a place that was quiet and peaceful and away from other campers... Pasture in the Valley delivered!! No cell service or internet was a great benefit, we wanted to get away! Our kids had a blast exploring the woods, fields, and creek and loved meeting the farm cat and dogs! Navigating the area to different attractions (Cass, Seneca Rocks, Blackwater Falls) was easy with a map. The area is just beautiful and serene. We plugged our camper into electric and used the bathroom/showers they provided. It worked just fine for our family.
