Quiet spot but not easy for GPS to find. (Ours put us on abutting property.) Host was there to greet us and helped direct us to the site.
Best part was the delightful chat with him by his campfire. It would be hard to find a more laid-back, genuine soul.
We did not get to meet the owners but a neighbor greeted us and asked if we needed anything. We picked this location because it said « off leash area « and we have two dogs. When we arrived we were greeted by three good sized dogs. So I guess off leash area means everyone is off leash. 😂 the dogs look really tough but are really super sweet so we had no problems. Ours played with one in the river.
But ultimately we had to leash ours because we couldn’t get them to stay out of the river! They love the water.
This is a very quiet camp ground. We were able to dump our sewage which I was helpful to lighten the load for the next leg home.
Our host showed up the next day and spent a couple days there. He is a great guy and his son was a really nice guy. We had a few talks and I learned a little about the area. Like the time change right across the river from where we were camped. It was extremely hot while we were there. But were supplied with electrical hookup sewer and water. How nice is that! Pretty nice of people to share such a nice setup. We will return someday I hope when it isn't so hot. Thank you for the stay. It was just what we needed.
Peaceful, but beware of soft ground. The soil is so fertile that it can be VERY soft if there is any moisture. It rained during the night, so I had to persuade the neighboring farmer to pull me out. Probably wound have been OK if I;d kept one side on the gravel, partially blocking the road, but that would have been preferable to the ruts the tractor and I left in the grass. Other than that, a nice stay, with great communication with the hosts.
Dan was not there but was ok with us boondocking. He sent us detailed directions and was very welcoming on the phone. If ur looking for off the beaten path and tranquility. This is the place.
We stayed 3 days here on our way to Nashville from Illinois.
Although Dan was not at the host site, he was very thorough in communicating the site details and directions. We had a great stay at his site. The neighbors were also very helpful and friendly. There was a get together nearby with a band for celebrating July 4th and we were invited and made to feel welcome.
Everything was just as described on this site with water, 30 amp electric and sewer. The access is a little winding, with the last 1/4 mile in gravel, but I had no trouble getting our 34ft. motor home with car hauler to the site.
I recommend this site to anyone passing through!
This site is well set up with full hookups right across from the White River. My host was unable to be on site but his son took over the job of greeting me and helping me to choose a spot to park my trailer/truck. The rain that happened all night did create some issues but I was well taken care of. This is a nice site tucked back off the highway that is much like a regular campground and if I was in the area again I would stay here. Thanks so much for your hospitality.
