    We offer space to park or pitch your tent. I've been at this for 13 years, so there's not a lot I haven't seen. BYO sleeping arrangement.

    We have a hot shower and restroom facilities, which right now is a bright blue porta potty. It is serviced each Monday.

    Go-Fast campers are just up the road. We've hosted many.

    Car campers and vans are welcome as well.

    I don't do homeless camps or man-camps.

    Yes, I've seen it all!

    *A NOTE ABOUT YOUR DOG* Don't surprise me with them. We are animal lovers, but this is a working farm. They must be ON LEASH at all times and you are expected to clean up after them. This includes poop and hair. Remember, I've seen it all!

    Farm=mud & manure so it smells like a farm.

    Located on a historic farm just minutes from town. We have lived here all of our lives and work the land we live on.

    Our farm includes 2 antique shepherd's wagons, a cabin, which are listed on Airbnb.

    Serenity Sheep Farm Stay and The Wool Mill.

    The space

    This listing is for up to 3 people. Let me know if there are more than that in your party. $10 for each additional person. Please don't surprise me with your pets. We are pet-loving people, but this is also a working farm. I need to know in advance.

    We have 2 antique shepherd's wagons for rent as well as a cabin. This tent space is in a field that is shared with them. There is one outhouse and a propane, heat-on-demand shower house as well as a fire pit. All are shared spaces. This tent space is a field on a farm. We have lots of farm animals wandering about. The chickens do roam. We also have Richardson's ground squirrels, more commonly known as gophers, who can dig holes and tear up the ground. With all of that said, we are not a campground per se. We only allow 2 tent guests at a time, so this is not like a large commercial campground. You will share a fire pit with any other guests here on the farm, if there is no burn ban in effect.

    We are 8 miles from Belgrade and Yellowstone International Airport, 10 miles from i-90 and 20 miles from downtown Bozeman.

    $25 fee to pick up your dog poop!

    Quiet, private, not a campground. It's a working farm.

    20 minutes from Bozeman.

    Guest access

    You'll be sharing a composting outhouse and or port-potty and shower house with other guests.

    Other things to note

    Our bedtime is 9:00 pm. Some days earlier. We realize travel plans change and late arrivals are a part of that. It's common for guests to come in late, so I can give you easy, specific directions to the place in that event. Past 9:00 pm, we sleep! :-)

    I've found it best to lay it all out for guests so they know what is expected of them. Someone is always here if you need anything and we are happy to assist, but there's nothing we can do about the weather.

    The first wagon on the left on your way in is a farm store. Be sure to check it out and see what all we do in the wool mill.
