A Working Farm

Fossil Beach Farm is a working farm. We have cattle that may be in the area, as well as opossums (seen mostly at night), deer, Canadian geese, eagles, and many other types of birds. Please respect the wildlife both on and off the property.

Your Safety

The farm sits on high bank waterfront, please do not go close to the edge of the bank and stay behind fences. You will get hurt if you fall down the bank. Please use the marked beach access. Fossil Beach Farm is not responsible for any injuries that result for not following these directions.

Please follow the signs on the property, if it says do not enter it means there is a danger.

Our Pet Policy

Pets are only allowed in our Straddie tent. To allow pets in this tent we require a cleaning fee of 20 per night. We also request that pets be kept in a crate/or bed while in the tent and on a leash on the property (Dogs cannot be left in the tent alone). The beach directly in front is off leash but please keep in mind the many birds and wild life. The pet fee needs to be added at time of booking.

Fire, Smoking

Each tent comes with a propane fire pit for your enjoyment. A fire extinguisher is located at each tent. In the height of fire season we reserve the right to discontinue the use of fire pits. No beach fires are allowed. Smoking is only allowed in a designated area near the cidery building. Hornby is often in extreme fire hazard rating in the summer months please use extreme caution.


Our farm welcomes children! Our Flora tent has two queen sized beds to accommodate families. Our other tents Straddie, San Juan, Cortez, Kowloon and Discovery can accommodate children on the floor space if needed please bring children’s bedding. Our Lanta tent has a Max of two persons of any age.
