Evensong Farm is a beautiful piece of preserved history and nature that is nestled in the hills that border Antietam National Battlefield. Come share in our appreciation of open space, rolling hills, flowing water, and shady forests. We have carefully selected campsites on our farm that will give you both privacy and sweeping views. Both of our expansive Tentrr sites are set up with one queen bed with memory foam mattress in the main platform tent, a private "Latrine" building that has a composting toilet and outdoor sun-bag shower, multiple seating areas, a fire pit, a kitchen and picnic area, a kitchen wash area with a foot operated sink. Autumn Olive also has a charcoal Weber grill (bring your own charcoal). We provide all of our campers with drinking water, wash water, and a bundle of firewood per night. In the colder months we have a space heater available. You will have use of an additional Coleman tent if more tent space is needed. This site can accommodate up to three additional tents if you want to have a gathering with up to 12 people camping together. To make camping a bit more luxurious, and to lighten the amount of things you have to bring with you, we offer extras like bedding, a kitchen kit, a portable power station, and more. Our guests will be emailed a digital camp guide and guestbook so that they can plan their stay! Recreation: The campsites are just a short walk away from the farm's long frontage along the Antietam Creek, a popular creek for floating and canoeing. We have a gathering area by the creek that is available for our campers to enjoy if they would like to relax Creekside. There are businesses nearby that rent tubes, kayaks and canoes or you can bring your own. You can put in or take out at the farm. Floating on the creek is highly recommended! We are a 10-minute drive from the C&O Tow Path, 15 minutes from the Appalachian Trail and 20 minutes from Harpers Ferry, WV where you will find companies that offer outdoor experiences like zip-lining and guided raft trips down the Potomac or Shenandoah rivers. History: Evensong Farm neighbors the Antietam National Battlefield, which honors the deadliest day in American history. You can walk to parts of the Battlefield from the farm, and the Visitors Center is just a short 5-minute drive away. The historic easements on the property forbid any metal detecting, no exceptions will be made to this restriction. Food and Activities: We are a 5-minute drive from Sharpsburg where you will find a store for necessities, a local bakery for your morning donuts and bread and, the establishment that Sharpsburg is most well-known for, Nutters Ice Cream! In the nearby towns of Shepherdstown, WV and Boonsboro, MD, you will find grocery stores, restaurants, quaint shops and seasonal festivals.

Site Guidelines

Well-mannered dogs are welcome and should be leashed at all times.... Remember that you will be in nature and it is full of great and interesting living things-furry, crawly and slithery. Along with deer, wild turkey, opossum, herons, and the occasional bald eagle you might also encounter gnats, ticks, spiders, snakes, etc.... Feel free to pick up dead-fall branches and twigs to use in your fire ring. Please do not attempt to remove any standing wood, both for your safety and the health of the forest.... Leave the fire rings where we have placed them and never start a fire within the cedar tree forest. We will alert campers if fire restrictions are put in place by the local authorities.... No smoking in the tents. If you smoke outside, extinguish all butts and take them with you....

I grew up right outside the bustling DC Beltway in Maryland, but my family spent a lot of time camping outdoors at a property near Lost River, WV. I hope to make your camping experience just as memorable but a bit more comfortable than those of my youth!
