Gettysburg Farm Camp Ground

This is the most unique park we have stayed in.  It is actually a working farm, but they also let the visitors interact with the farm and animals.

Kids, goats, are cute. Also smell a little as most folks know. But the small ones are very curious. They want to smell and get to know dogs.  We watched some one evening. There is no animal supervision, I guess the management figures we will watch out for ourselves.

This cute little fellow lay down right in front of me.

I had my doubts when I petted the Bull. Frisky young fellow, I thought he was going to take the fence down, or break his leg.

Billy Goat gruff!

The entrance is lined with antique farm equip. Most are used for planters for Veggies. I think these held pumpkins or squash.

I’m eating green apples as I type this, hoping my stomach is as good as it was a long time ago, I have always loved green apples and salt.

1941 Stude

This is a pretty 1941 Studebaker at the Eustis, FL car show.

That is neat, Jack, with the animals around! It seems like the people came up with a great idea to have the working farm and RV park! I bet for little ones it is fun to stay there! Looks like a nice day you and Sherry had!


Helen said...

Looks like a good place to stay. Very good pictures. I wish those folks would doctor that bull's eye. Looks like he has pink eye. It is running like crazy all down his face. Those baby goats are cute. Guess the dogs don't bother them.

Glenda said...

Looks like you two are having a
wonderful time, love the pics of
y'all and the animals!

Man you know how to pick great parks. That looked like a good one with lots of interesting animals and sites.

Lucy said...

The pictures are wonderful. Bulls do not like me and not sure they like anyone. so don't turn your back on one? Have you ever drank goats milk??? Just wondered how it tastes.

That is a beautiful place, the animals running around makes it
better. Bring me back on of the
baby goats. I could take him to
see Goat Island in Cramerton.
He would be happly in my back
yard with my mentally disturb squirrels. LOL

Glad you are having a restful
good ole time.

Uh Huh now Jack and Sherry are down on the farm. What a neat RV park. The new RV park in our neighborhood is so crowded with RV's there isn't room for a goat.


Goats are so cute. What a clever idea for an RV park. Must be lots of fun too. LOVED all the pics of everything. ENJOY your stay. Take care.

love the log, stone construction, the goats (we had goats when I was a kid, a man my Dad worked with gave him a pregnant female and he brought her home in a Crosely station wagon) and planting veggies in antique farm equipment! I even like the Studebaker that's a year older than me!

Wonderful where alike is possible and happening.

With a surname translated to 'Goat', it was great to see family members ;) Please have you all a good time and a great weekend.

Great post, Jack!
«Louis» has 2 uncles in Texas who restore farm equipment. He will send them the link to this post because they'll enjoy it, too.

Too bad the Stude wasn't restored to original rather than customized. Note the shape of the grill and the hood - that design theme was picked up on again by Robert Bourke in the '53 Studebakers.

What a great RV park!

Everything looks good, even the corn in the background.

My folks always said the antidote to a green-apple bellyache was a buttered biscuit. (FYI just in case.) :-)

We've been blessed with a nice cool day here too. What a relief from the heat we've been having. It was a pretty steady 74 degrees most of the day. It felt good to sit around the campfire this evening. That is a unique campground there. I've never seen one like that before. Tomorrow it is to start warming up again, but I enjoyed the reprieve while we had it. Tell Sherry I had to put a sweatshirt on here this afternoon.
