We live on 1 1/3 acres of rural property in the small town of Mohawk, TN. Don't let our location name fool you. Our property is divided by a drainage area and we call everything between the drainage area and the road "The Lower Forty"! At this time we do not have any amenities to offer but you may come and get water if you need it. We don't know if our wifi would work in that area but if you would like to try to use it, please ask us for the sign on information. There is afternoon shade in the back yard, although the RV area is in the sun. We a have a front deck with table and chairs and a back deck that has a screened canopy with seating. You are welcome to use either area. There is also a three seat swing in back yard near fire pit that you may use. We would love to have you join us for some fellowship. We love to share our love for Jesus with anyone who wants to listen and we would love to hear stories that you would like to share.

House Rules

Although we have no problem with alcoholic beverages, we do ask that you be considerate and not party. Please no smoking on property during dry season, as we would worry about it being a fire hazard. Please do NOT throw cigarette butts on grass. Pets are welcomed but must be leashed. Please pick up after your animal. Lawn chairs, Canopies, Tents and barbecue grills are okay but all fires must be extinguished immediately after use. Please pick up all trash before you leave. There is a small vinyl enclosed bin near side of house where you are free to put your trash. Generators are fine. Children are fine but please keep them away from road and water drainage area.

Access Road Conditions

We are a country road, 4 miles from route 11E. The road is regular country road until you come to our graveled driveway. Travel on the driveway is not completely flat. The area where the RV will park is a slightly elevated area but basically pretty level. There is a possibility to pull through but it is on our neighbor's property and we would have to get their permission. Moving truck has made the turn from the road to our driveway without any trouble. If you will have to back up to leave parking area, there is only a short distance to back up. The only issue we have with parking is that our ground is clay and in very rainy weather, the ground will soften and make it difficult to maneuver. We suggest that you check with us regarding weather conditions a day or two before you arrive. There are no trees. Area is full sun. Because a visitor felt that the road and driveway may be too narrow to access with a large RV or small with tow, we have included some pictures noting the entrance to the driveway, in hopes that it will help you make a determination ahead of time.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

All parking is on grass. There is a gravel driveway leading to the parking area. Parking should be behind RV.

We attend church services Saturday mornings and are usually not available to welcome guests until around 3:30-4:00. Because we live in a rural area, when we go shopping we often take 2-4 hours to shop and enjoy a lunch out. If you need to make arrangements other than those specified, you will be given two cell phone numbers on which to reach us. We also have an RV and may do some last minute trips.

Suggested Local Attractions

Dollywood and all Pigeon Forge attractions are about 1 hour from us. We are about 1 hour from Knoxville and 25-30 minutes from area shopping in Greenville and Morristown. Cherokee Lake and Dam are not far away. Other than that, there is a lot of peace and quiet!

Excellent Christian couple

They were there to greet me and guide me in. We sat on their patio and had great conversations together including our love for our Lord. God's love shines through them. They make you feel at home.

Completely boondocked for the first time on The Lower 40. Ground was level and dry. Some street noise until around midnight, then quiet with tons of stars to be seen. Host graciously shared fresh garden tomatoes and well wishes for my sick family member. Appreciate the kind words. It is always nice to have a safe place to stay. Would recommend!

Fellowship, Fire, and New Friends!

Our experience at the Lower 40 was indescribable! A true blessing to us and these hosts would be a blessing to anyone who stops through. We had amazing fellowship around the campfire.

The description is 100% accurate. The site is relatively level. It was a tight turn with a 30ft travel trailer, but once on the property, there’s plenty of open space. We look forward to returning and connecting with these amazing people soon!

What a pleasant stay!

I had a great level place to park in the lower 40! My hosts were most gracious and met me when I go there to show me where to park. They also invited me to visit on their porch but I was beat and had to decline. Maybe next time!!

1st Place Winners

BW’d from Rhode Island to Florida and back. Although the amenities were few, the hospitality was the best we experienced our whole trip. The RV site was perfect and easy to get in and out. We were far enough away from neighbors that they could never hear our generator.

Nicest folks

The most gracious hosts you can imagine! Enjoyed our stay in their yard and exploring the sights in northeast Tennessee. May God bless them as they bless others.

Beautiful Countryside, Lovely People!

Terrible weather but very nice host.

wafcaf27 provided a wonderfully level spot for us to park our rig. Upon our arrival we were welcomed with smiling faces and we had a wonderful visit around the campfire in the backyard. Unfortunately the weather was horrible almost the entire time we were there but there was still a few things we found to do in nearby Greenville. The only downside we saw to this location was that is on a very narrow side road and the driveway entrance was a bit narrow. Between those two things, rigs larger than ours (PU & 21’ travel trailer) may find it difficult to swing into their driveway. Thanks so much for allowing us the pleasure of staying at your place.
