My dog is part of our family. Can he camp with us?

Yes! Friendly pets are allowed. For health reasons, your pet cannot be allowed inside the food gardens or buildings and must be up-to-date on shots. For safety reasons, they must be leashed (state law) and under supervision at all times. Please be considerate and find other arrangements for your pet if they are aggressive or have excessive barking or yapping. Breeds that contain chow, wolf, pit bull or rotts are not covered under the insurance policy and cannot be allowed. Oh, and you must scoop up their you know what and discard properly before it gets on your shoes and into your tent.

Is it ok to bring my own beverages?

Absolutely! Please do not bring any glass containers - we do not want to chance our four-legged friends getting cut. Alcohol must be kept in designated areas. State law prohibits anyone under 21 from drinking alcohol. Please drink responsibly - no one wants to put up with drunken behavior.

What time can I check-in and when do I have to check-out?

We have farming hours here. Check in begins at day break and check out is dusk (before dark). If the office happens to be closed when you arrive, please stop by the back of the house. There is a registration form in the mailbox to fill out (state law) and we'll settle with payments when we find you. Farm rules are posted on the bulletin board by the Big Pole Barn.

I have friends who want to visit but do not want to stay overnight. Do you allow guests?

Yes! Everyone is welcome to enjoy the farm & especially your friends. We do charge a $1 day use visitor fee per person & pet to help cover general expenses. And they will need to check in the office to sign a Use Agreement prior to heading to your campsite. Parking for guests is at the Big Pole Barn.

Is there a limit to how many tents I can set up on my camp site?

Yes, per state law, up to three (3) tents are allowed per camp site.
