This site is at our river house, The Steel Magnolia (ugly steel house with two magnolia trees in the front yard). We live on Dog River and have 170' frontage on the River. We have a boat dock (it is old...use at your own risk). Our yard water is from our well (safe to drink and taste better than most well water).

Since we have pet chickens and a working dog, no pets are allowed. Our gate is tied to our security all guests must arrive by 6PM or before dark (whichever comes first). Monday arrivals must be in by 3PM. Departure times between 6:30 & 9:00. These times may vary and can be discussed as needed.

Since this is our river are apt to see our stuff parked on site, boats, trailers, work equipment, etc. The Steel Magnolia is a work in progress. :)

We are close to I-10 & 1-65.

Access Road Conditions

Campers will have to back in from the street, through our gate and then straight down a concrete driveway. It is a bit tight. There is also a dip in the road at our driveway (super low-slung rigs may have a problem). If you are not competent in backing your rig and don't have a spotter with communication ability...entry may be difficult for you.

We live on Dog River. This is an old and depressed neighborhood...but still safer than most places. There are low hanging limbs that can be dodged easily.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

On concrete in front of trailer.

No vehicle with leaking fluids will be allowed! (Trying to protect the River).


We travel a lot on the weekends so they are limited...but please check with me. Monday arrivals will need to be in place by 3PM.

All arrivals, other than Monday, need to be in place by 6 PM or before dark (depending on the season). Departures between 7:00 & 9:00 unless otherwise directed.

Our main gate is secure and we need to be available to open/close it.
