Our property offers a unique backdrop for camping excursions and outdoor exploration. We are surrounded by 400 acres of woods, wetlands and pastures, which means there is a lot of space for every camper to feel as if they have the place to themselves. We boast over 4 miles of wooded trails, so bring your bikes and your hiking shoes and prepare to be immersed in the natural surroundings and landscapes.

Our facilities include hot showers, safe drinking water, porta johns, & outhouses. Our on-site Farm Store features beef, chicken, pork, mushrooms and vegetables raised here on our organic farm, The Store is open 8-8 daily and is self-serve and open to campers.

Woods Camping at The Heron

Pack a tent or load up your RV! Most sites have a spot for your car, but some wooded areas do require that you hike in with your gear. Campsites range from primitive and secluded woodland nooks, to spots closer to amenities and facilities. Some of our sites have electricity, but there are no 30 or 50 amp hook-ups. AC use is NOT permitted due to limited services.

We will help you find the perfect site!
