Welcoming and safe place. Newer, level concrete pad in our fenced-in backyard suitable for truck camper, camper van, small class B or C, or small travel trailer. (See below for size restrictions.) If you choose to unhitch, you can close the fence gates to give your pups a safe place to run off leash. For convenience, a scooper and bags will be provided so that you can easily cleanup after your pooch. Water hookup and 15A electric provided. One bag of trash may be disposed in our toter. Guest wifi is available but may be weak because of the distance from the house. A fire pit and plenty of firewood is available if you wish to relax with a drink by the fire.

- RV max length = < 25 ft in length (including hitch)
- RV max width = < 9 ft wide (with slideouts closed.)
- Light sleepers may need ear plugs or some white noise. Train tracks are less than 1/4 mile. Still many decibels quieter than sleeping in the parking lot of a popular southern-themed restaurant.

Access Road Conditions

We have a level concrete pad in a residential neighborhood. It requires that you back up through and across our driveway, through the yard, and between the fence gates which is a tight squeeze.
(If you are uncomfortable with that, we are more than happy to assist. We wouldn't want anyone damaging their camper, and we kinda like our fence. 😊).

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Parking for tow vehicle in either the yard or the driveway, or stay connected if you choose.

Madisonville, KY, United States of America

Suggested Local Attractions

2 hours from Nashville, 1 hour from Evansville, IN or Owensboro, KY.

We are better suited as a stop en route to your destination. However, should you wish to explore the area, Mahr Park is beautiful with a lake to fish and kayak, a paved bike/walking path, and playground. They currently have kayak rentals. Grapevine Lake Park has some nice mountain bike trails and a small lake. Madisonville has several popular fast food choices, Applebee's, Oasis Southwest, Cracker Barrel, and several local choices. If you need to restock your pantry, a grocery store and liquor store are just a few minutes away.
