WhistleStop Farms offers 420-friendly secluded camping across the street from the beach, paddling, fishing, biking, hiking and more. We have several campsites with parking & can accommodate 1-100 people. The sites are rustic – meaning no electricity, water, or sewer. You pack in and pack out. We operate on a working farm with heavy equipment and animals, and while pets are allowed, they must be kept on a leash.
Why did you get into the cannabis business?
We have been growing organic cannabis indoors and out since 1996 and have operated several local cannabis businesses over the years.
