GnomeWood was formerly known as ElfenWood.
The Elves all left and the Gnomes moved in.
If you are ready for a truly quiet camp with no amplified sound,
GnomeWood is for you.
At GnomeWood we offer a truly relaxing, family-friendly respite during your OCF adventure. GnomeWood is run by local neighbors who know what a need there is for a tranquil place to camp. Yes, we have a fantastic community campfire for songs, tall tales (and, of course, s’mores for kids of all ages), but our quiet time is real.
Why Stay at GnomeWood?
We have a realistic quiet time starting at midnight (kids' quiet time is 10:30), which is actually enforced.
There are no ticket or parking fees, so the prices you see here are your total cost.
Well, we know that you might need to use your car during the weekend, and so you may!
We have toys, games and activities for kids (not to mention the bubble machine!).
You have two camping options: Tent-Only or Camp with Vehicle
