Our Philosophy
The Vision:
To get back to nature



Grins & Pickin’s CampFarm was created to share the outdoors with others. Growing food,  flower gardening, camping, fishing, hiking & practicing homesteading is what we like to do. And we like sharing these activities with others. 


We have created a fun place for your family to visit, play outside & stay the night outside if you choose. With woods to hike & a creek to explore. Wildlife to see. And a pond to catch & release bluegill. A place to relax & get away from all the screens. A place to get back to nature.


The CampFarm caters to primitive camping but we do have a few campsites for small rv's (with no available hookups). We prefer to hear the frogs & owls instead of the sound of generators. There is no electricity at the extra large campsites & you'll need to bring in your own water.


Here at the farm, you can grow your own food, pick your own food, cook your own food & eat it too. 


Where else can you go camping & pick out your own fresh chicken and duck eggs for breakfast?


Grins & Pickin's



"We just got back from a weekend camp out at Grins & Pickin's Camp Farm - and it was GREAT! Friendly staff, great facilities, EXACTLY the kind of primitive, family style camping experience we were looking for. We are already planning our next camp out there. Thank you so much! :)"

"I can't tell you how nice it was to just sit and listen to the silence, see the moon and stars, and just enjoy being in the woods. City guy that I am, it was a real treat to hear a couple of different owls, a woodpecker, and a turkey. I'd like to come back, maybe with the scouts, but maybe not."
