We're in Beersheba Springs, a small town about 30 minutes from I-24.

The boondocking spot is located next to a huge barn that is used for local gatherings and weddings, adjacent to a scenic pond and a horse pasture. The small town has only one store -- a small grocery.

We provide fast free wifi.

You can see more about the location on The concrete pad that you can use is the described as the parking area for the barn.

House Rules

No smoking, no fireworks, no glass containers. Please be respectful of the neighbors, who are our friends and caretakers for the property. The local market will appreciate it if you can shop there. Limited selection, but a great old country store -- worth a visit.

Access Road Conditions

Pretty easy access. You will park on a large concrete pad, directly across from the barn.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Plenty of room on the concrete pad.


Available date.
Unavailable date.
Use the stay request form above to make a request with this host for a given date.

The barn is often booked for weddings from May through October, and thus the concrete pads are needed for wedding parking -- no room for RVs or trailers! Generally, Mondays through Thursdays are available. Feel free to peek at the online schedule -- look at the "Dates" page on to get an idea of when the parking might be needed for an event.

Suggested Local Attractions

Feel free to wander to the back side of the barn and enjoy the little pond and sunset views. You are also welcome to walk down to the pond; to the left is a gate that leads across the little dam to the far side of the pond. Feel free to wander over there; the woods are pretty.

Nearby, you might want to visit South Cumberland State Park, featuring the Great Stone Door, Greeter Falls, and more.

Stone Door is a couple of miles away; when you get back to Hiway 56, turn right and look for the brown state park sign in about half a mile. It's an easy 1 mile walk to the overlook. More details at the ranger station once you are inside the park.

Greeter Falls is also a couple of miles away; when you get back to Hiway 56, turn left (towards Altamont). Look for the brown & white "Greeter Falls" sign on your right. If you get to Altamont, you went too far. From the Greeter Falls parking lot, it's about a 15 minute walk from the parking lot to the falls. The "Blue Hole" is also pretty.

On Saturday afternoons from May through October, the Beersheba Springs Museum is open. When you drive back to Hiway 56, turn left and it's on your right (before the local market).

Safe, quiet stay

Thanks so much to John for hosting me even though originally I canceled. I was able to arrive there and see a beautiful sunset. I never would have discovered that amazing little town of Beersheba springs had it not been for this boondocker stay.
I hung around the town a bit, went to the grocery, went to the stone door Park nearby and hiked to Laurel falls. I would love to go back and stay for a bit!

Easy access from I-24

A quiet pullover for the night, or couple of nights! Don't miss Stone Door State Park just a 2 mile trip from the Barn. The country store has 'something of most everything" a person could want. They don't take cards, but have an ATM on site for your convenience.

I actually caught a moon set one morning just over the Red Barn! We had a thunder burst shower and it was sure nice to have the concrete pads available for parking. You could probably get several campers on the pads in case you travel in groups. Great speed fiber internet offers you a place you can get some work done....if you must!!

Can't wait to get back with my fishing gear with the lake so close. Enjoy!

Quiet, level, blazing wifi

Parked on a flat, concrete pad across from the Big Red Barn. Beautiful lake and meadow behind the barn. A little out of the way, but in a gorgeous area of the Tennessee mountains.

Quiet, relaxing setting

The Big Red Barn is in a beautiful, rural setting. We enjoyed the quiet, relaxing atmosphere and would recommend this stop to fellow travelers. The concrete pad to park the rig is flat, roomy and convenient!

Flexible and gracious

Thank y’all for allowing us a last minute stay. Enjoyed the morning songbirds....Such a hidden gem!

Missed meeting them

The journey to The Big Red Barn was challenging - my GPS did not recognize the name of the street. The drive along the long long and winding road will be remembered for a long time.
The local folks are very friendly and were happy to direct me to the famous location.
A lovely sunset behind mountains in the distance, frisky horses as neighbours. I settled in for the night and slept well.
Thanks johnradams for the opportunity to see the beautiful fall colours and the mountains.
