Description

We began homesteading Steepleview Farm 35 years ago. We turned an abandoned farm into a paradise. With nature trails, wide open spaces, a beautiful 1 acre lake, dock and gorgeous skies you can relax, take a walk, fish, feed the horses, feed the chickens and enjoy a truly relaxed time with nature. We are an educational farm and love to talk about how to reconnect with the earth, get back in rhythm with the seasons and join the harmony of nature all around. Lots of wildlife to see, plenty of birds, huge skies, great sunsets, astounding sunrises and privacy. There is a lot of history here from the major old Buffalo Trail that wound through this country, to the location of an old one room school house on the property, to an intriguing connection to a mob hideout right next store, you will come for the quiet, stay in peace and leave with stories to tell. For more information visit our website or give us a call. We hope to see you HERE!

Beautiful Kentucky Farm Near the Ark Encounter

Worth the price of our membership for this stay alone! Very friendly host had plenty of space for our 40’ class A and made us feel welcome. Let us walk all through their nature trails and feed the horses and chickens. You can tell they are passionate about their farm and excited to share with others!

Peaceful farm setting - Great Hosts

We were greeted upon arrival & directed to our perfectly level, gravel site. We had views of the steeple and were right next to their old roadside farmstand site. It was a peaceful place to spend our couple nights, walk our new puppy on the nearby grassy areas and watch the sunset. Unfortunately, the huge rainstorms came overnight & with our early departure, we did not get to walk to the Farm to enjoy all there is to see there & buy some of there produce.
We hope to return to this very convenient location to enjoy this area more next time! We Highly Recommend!

Too rainy, but still great!

Really wished we would have been able to walk the farm and enjoy all there is to see.
Unfortunately, it had rained all night.
Host provided easy to follow directions, even from our previous stop (Ark Encounter).
Hope to visit again!

Plenty of space

Peaceful and quiet place, the host is great and offer me another spot to park away from the main road because I have a little kid.

Home Away from Home

We were greeted amiably by the Farm Caretaker. He helped me get the vehicle level and gave us information about the farm: it's activities, trails, etc. Ace, our Labrador, loved the pond. He's always ready for a swim. He is around cats and chickens at home, so we didn't have to be concerned about him chasing either.
We bought some honey and produce. The tomatoes were delicious.
We will return whenever in the area again.

Great Location to Visit the Ark Encounter

Boondocking at Steeplview was very quiet and relaxing and a perfect base for visiting the Ark Encounter about 45 minutes away. Easy to find, the host lays it all out in his directions. The Harvest Host signage makes it simple. No problems pulling in. Our gravel spot was dead level so no need to put out a ramp. Nice view of the church and steeple even though it rained two out of three days we were there. We missed meeting our hosts as they were out but they were in communication with us and their employee helped us buy farm fresh eggs at their farm stand. Thank you for your kind hospitality! Hopefully we'll meet someday!

Great stay!

Arrived on a drizzly evening and stayed one night. The host asked me to call when I was close so he could meet me upon arrival. He drove a golf cart and led me right to a parking spot.
Super friendly people and a good place to boondock. Woke up to a gorgeous day with a beautiful view.
We visited the chickens and fed a carrot to the horses.
Such a picturesque location!

Fantastic view

What a fantastic view - a great place to try out our solar for the first time - hi up on a hill with a wonderful view of the church steeple. We loved listening to the songs of the coyotes at night - highly recommend this wonderful boondocking site

Very pleasant and welcoming host

Lovely view, place to walk and experience farm life and buy produce. We were busy sightseeing elsewhere so couldn’t take full advantage of our surroundings. We’ll definitely come back again to do that.

Beautiful location.

Nice place to stay. There were several guests, and we enjoyed visiting with them. The location is beautiful, watching the sunrise over the church steeple. There was plenty of room, with parking for a variety of rigs, small and large.

Peaceful And Produce

What more could you ask for. A very peaceful stay and we purchased some wonderful produce while we were there. Very nice hosts and we went to The Ark Encounter not far away during our stay. They had some great knowledge for growing a garden too!

Beautiful Land and Gracious Hosts

Wow! What an experience! It is obvious from the moment you pull up to Steepleview Farm that Mark and his wife have spent quite a bit of time and money to accommodate RVs of every size. There are large open fields with white gravel driveways to ensure easy pull through access.

The land is well maintained with many garden plots (the RV parking was near the sunflower plot). Mark and his wife were very welcoming and invited us to explore the grounds including the barn where the horses are, the chicken coop, their produce stand (where we bought two jars of their homemade salsa), and the miles of hiking trails spread throughout their 100+ acres of land.

We arrived in a 22 foot camper being towed by a Toyota 4runner. We overheard Mark mention that they had someone arriving in a 40 class C with a trailer in tow. They will have no problem accommodating any size RV. We had between 2 and 3 bars of Verizon 4G cell coverage.

Great place to stay

Had a wonderful stay at their beautiful farm. Good parking site, we purchased fresh vegetables from their farm stand.
The host were very friendly,
We enjoyed a beautiful sunset sitting in their field next to the beautiful sunflowers.
We will definitely be stopping there again.
