Quiet and restful spot

Thanks to Scott and Tina for being super hosts. Had great conversation for our short stay. Scott’s renovations on his Airstreams are amazing! Although we got there later than we anticipated, after dark, he met us and got us parked and set up. They are welcome to our place in Mississippi anytime! Thanks again, Scott and Tina!

Nice hosts, lots of room

I stayed at this location for 4 nights. The hosts are super nice and helpful, and offered 30 amp at no cost (I always offer) which was crucial because of the temperatures in the high 80s. There is a lot of room to walk and enjoy, and only 40 minutes from Mammoth Cave National Park! A loud train goes by a few times a day, but other than that, it was a pleaceful place to stay :)

Backyard oasis

I only stayed one night because i got stuck in Indiana in thunderstorms. They were so nice and accommodating. Beautiful backyard oasis. Got to see their airstream and box truck, which could be a camper too. Hooked me up with 30amp elec, parked in pull through flat top driveway. And they had a dump station. Would recommend to others and would stay again.

Friendly

These hosts are wonderful. They were communicative and flexible. This host even met us at a local store to help guide us in. Their site was level and smooth. We had no problem fitting and we are 57' with truck and trailer. The train was such a thrill for our kids to see. We can't thank them enough for welcoming our family to their beautiful home.

Quiet small town in a rural area

We enjoyed our stay at Camp Carter. Our host ran an extension cord to our site so we could plug in and we also were able to dump our holding tanks, which was most appreciated. We would be happy to stay again when in the area.

Great hosts. We only wish our schedules coordinated better so we could have got to know them a little more. Next time.

Great Hosts

Scott and Tina were fantastic hosts. Shared about thier rig. Stayed up talking til Scott had to go to bed to get uo at 5 the next morning. He even swapped out my extension for a heavy duty one as I rarely need an extension cord.

Our hosts, Scott and Tina, embody Boondockers Welcome’s philosophy

PROS
Our hosts Scott and Tina showed what Boondockers Welcome is all about: A chance to meet other like-minded explorers of our vast and complicated world. We talked at length about RVing, our kids, mechanics, gardening, Scouting, engineering, science fiction and our business history until 10PM several nights. I encourage other members to give Camp Carter a try.

We stayed three nights and were pleasantly surprised at the southern hospitality shown by our gracious hosts, Scott and Tina. It was Memorial Day weekend and they invited us to a party mainly for family members. They treated us like family and we got to know Scott and Tina’s father, mother and other relatives. The food was so tasty, including some walnut pie baked by a close relative. Holy smokes, it was delicious!

I was in heaven because the campsite is 100 feet from a large salvage yard owned by our hosts. I was allowed to walk and drool over millions of auto, RV, boat and industrial parts. The salvage yard business is dormant. Not every camper may be comfortable with the salvage yard but since I am a motorhead, I loved it. Scott is a master mechanic, trucker, driver and computer-savvy mechanical engineer who can give expert advice on any type of rig. Our rig is a 1997 Foretravel U270 diesel pusher and Scott is as comfortable with it’s complex big-rig systems and he is with an Airstream.

We were offered a 15 Amp electric cord since it was 90 degrees F and high-humidity to run our AC. I declined since my rig may have overloaded the circuit or may have caused a brown-out in my rig. My rig has 1920 watts of solar, so we did not need power. I appreciated the offer though. There is a nice grove of trees, a gazebo and chairs to enjoy some peace in the shade. We were also offered water and a dump opportunity, which we also declined since we had plenty of water and capacity left in our waste tanks.

We visited a big event in Elizabethtown, KY, about 30 minutes away, called Barbecue, Bikes and Bands. We had the best pork BBQ ever. Never saw so many motorcycles in my whole life! All the chain stores and amenities can be found there.

Thanks so much for showing my wife and I the best of Kentucky hospitality. We would like to think we are lifelong friends.

CONS
Train tracks are about 50 yards away. It passed through three times during the night with the traditional horn with the Morse Code letter Q (Dash Dash Dot Dash). Then, during the Memorial Day weekend, it stopped...all quiet. Why the letter Q? It is said that old English trains passed near the Queen of England and, out of respect, sent the letter Q in morse code. Fun fact. ;)

Convenient location

Camp Carter provided a shady, fairly level spot, with electricity, water, kitties, and an occasional train. From there we were able to visit Mammoth Cave, and Bardstown and the Bourbon Trail, but Louisville, Bowling Green, and other locales are also close. Since they grew up in the area, our hosts, Scott & Tina, have a lot of knowledge of things to see and do. We had so much fun with them – they really made us feel like family and made our stay enjoyable! Oh, and if you like (sweet) wine, don’t forget to try some from the Purple Toad winery in nearby Paducah! Hopefully our paths will cross with the Carters again in the future and we will be able to hang out with them some more!

Great place, great people

Tina & Scott are wonderful hosts, we had a great time sharing stories around the campfire. Their property is beautiful and very unique. The camper set up was fast & easy and we definitely enjoyed our stay with them. Thanks for a great visit, hope to see you again sometime in the future!

Fantastic hosts

What a great secluded place to stay. Lots of room to park your RV and super hosts. One of the nights of our stay a couple of boondockers from Germany stayed as well. Had a great campfire with all and roasted marshmallows. We have so much in common with the hosts we wished we could stay longer. Hopefully next time. Thank you for all the ideas of places to visit and your great hospitality. Until next time

GOOD HOST

We stayed at Camp Carter and we enjoyed. Scott was friendly and welcoming. It was very interesting to speak about travelling and RVing. He was very helpful to give us informations to continue our road trip. With Scott’s directions it was easy to back up into the parking spot.
We recommend Camp Carter and we hope to see them In Québec.
