Camp in our private tipi, kayak on the pond, fish, swim, try a dutch oven meal, everything provided except food and sleeping bags. 5 miles from Williamsburg and I-80, within 30 minutes of Amana Colonies, Outlet Mall, Fireside Winery. We set up the tipi from June 1 to October 30. (For winter camping, without the tipi, check out our Winter Camp, open January 1 to April 30.)

The space
Camping in a tipi, you will need to bring your own sleeping bags, air mattress, or cot as needed; no beds are provided, however we have up to two twin size air mattresses that can be set up for you for an additional fee. An electrical cord can be used to run a fan if you need to bring one. The tipi is open and not screened in. Some campers like to bring insect or mosquito netting for their sleeping comfort. During rain events, we have an inside rainfly however, the tipi is an open air shelter and we cannot guarantee a 100% dry shelter if we experience long, heavy rains. The tipi sleeps 5 to 6 adults and up to 10 children. The 18 foot diameter tipi has a fire ring the center that will set up for a night fire. During cold or rainy periods the fire can used throughout the day. Firewood will be provided. If you wish, the fire ring can be removed ( great idea when the tipi is filled with kids).
There is a private pond and beach area. The pond water is clean for swimming and playing but is a natural body of water with plants and fish present. The prairie and woods trails are designed for hiking and playing. Feel free to walk through the prairie and woods, mindful that these areas are wildlife areas and of an uneven grade.
Our rustic restroom includes running water, wash basins and hot outdoor shower. There is a night light and electricity at the bathroom site. It is an outhouse so toilet paper is provided and stored in our fish mailbox to keep the mice out.
The picnic area includes water and electric access, fire ring, cooking equipment, including dutch ovens and utensils, dinnerware, kitchen wash basins and Weber grill are available. Firewood is provided.

I am a naturalist who loves being outdoors. My husband Kent and I are restoring a 10 acre farmstead and love sharing our tipi and pond area. I have been teaching outdoor education for over 25 years. My children and now grandchildren are my pride and joy and I can't wait until they are old enough to "camp" in grandma's tipi. We like things simple, rustic and peaceful. We garden fruits, vegetables and lots of native plants. My husband is becoming a winemaker and beer master. We love living here and enjoy our free time "working" on the farm.

During your stay

Once we meet with guests to provide some tipi and equipment information, we allow them their privacy. The timber provides a visual and sound barrier. We are available to them at our home if they need anything,
