I live in a 35 by 55 RV barn that I am planning to build out. There is a large parking area in front of it where I am welcoming boondockers. It is very close to the town of Franklin.

House Rules

I am sensitive to motors running, so running a generator is not an option if I am there in the barn.Dogs can run free, but ones who roam off or run off--although it is a quiet road down below, cars still drive fast on it. If you smoke, I would prefer it to be away from the barn.

Access Road Conditions

The driveway is up a hill, and you have to be able to pull in and then back your rig up into the space, which for a rig 25' and under shouldnt be a problem. The tow vehicle should be unhitched prior to backing more than likely.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Tow vehicle can park next to your rig.

Suggested Local Attractions

The spot is just one mile from a USFS trail head that leads to a nice waterfall. The trail actually connects to the Appalacian trail, and it is the kind of trail that goes up up up ! Franklin is world famous for gem mining for rubies and sapphires. My favorite mine is Mason mine, where I once found a 3 carot ruby that I had cut. It is a beautiful area and we have the Little Tennessee river for tubing and kayaking.
