Yes! We encourage campers to bring food and drinks, especially water. Food and drinks must be kept at your campsite only. It is NOT allowed in general areas. No ALCOHOL OR TOBACCO are allowed on the premises!


What should I bring with me? 

Below is a list of items we feel are the Top 10 essentials for campers.


1) Sufficient drinking water- You might get thirsty! Just sayin’!

2) Bug spray/ant granules- Yep, it’s a farm, on a farm are critters big and small. They especially like it if you leave crumbs around your campsite.

3) Off Deep Woods, or similar bug deterrent product- Have you ever felt like you were in a tent being buzzed by a Huey helicopter? Don’t worry that’s probably just a mosquito!

4) Flashlight- Uhh, do you want to go into a porta-potty without a flashlight at night? For that matter, do you want to go anywhere in the middle of nowhere without a flashlight at night?

5) You know, it’s always good to have a backup roll of toilet paper when camping, besides, the outhouse paper is scratchy anyway.

6) Benadryl- You know that stuff you realized you forgot AFTER finding an ant bed or Poison Oak on a nice walk.


7) First aid kit- All right Davy Crockett, you can never be too prepared for a boo-boo.

8) Food and non-alcoholic drinks for snacks or dinner.

9) Sleeping bags, Blankets, or other appropriate bedding. (Or you can just sleep on the ground.)

10) Shelter- This is a no brainer isn’t it, unless you REALLY want to camp like the cowboys. In that case just pick you a spot to call home for the night and grab a rock for a pillow. If not, Tents, RVs, or motorhomes are welcome. There are no hookups so units must be fully self-contained.


What time are lights out?     

While there is no specific time for lights out, for the sake of the families with smaller children camping on the farm we ask that noise be kept to a minimum after 10pm.


Are there any refunds or exchanges?

We recommend that you verify your dates with family and friends before purchasing tickets. Tickets cannot be replaced if lost, stolen, or destroyed.

You could get REALLY WET! This event is rain or shine. In the case of high winds we may not be able to offer all activities for safety reasons.
