NOTICE: We deeply regret that because of concerns for the safety of our campers we will NOT be open for daily or short-term camping for the 2020 season.  There will be no exceptions.  We will have seasonal and long-term camping (month or more) under strict guidelines.  A limited number of sites are available.

The Red Barn Campground is committed to high quality “farm oriented” family camping that promotes true leisure in an environment that is quiet and peaceful, clean and green.  One very important goal of the RBC is to provide opportunities for children to be in touch with nature and animals.

Lee’s grandparents purchased these 225 acres in 1917 and operated it as a dairy farm.  They opened a small tenting campground in 1965, making the unique barn a central focus of activities. The present barn, built in 1926, has undergone major restoration in the past 25 years. Lee’s parents expanded the campground and recreational possibilities from 1970-1983.  In the last thirty-five years we have further expanded and up-graded the campground for seasonal as well as daily camping.

Whether you are a new camper to the RBC or 2nd, 3rd, or 4th generation camper, we look forward to serving you and celebrating together!

Come and enjoy the current “Grandpa and Grandma’s farm”!  We trust you will leave the RED BARN rested, refreshed, and renewed in spirit,

Your Hosts,

-Lee and Dotty Swan
