We have several cats, including three barn cats that have free access to all area of the farm to help us control mice and other rodents - so we don't want dogs that might chase or harm the cats. A small dog is welcome as long as it is on a leash when outside your RV. There is a large dog park about 2 miles away, and our farm borders a local railroad track so you will hear and see a few local trains. We have a 1/4 acre pond stocked for catch & release fishing - no guests allowed in the pond area without specific permission, or in the barns. If you plug into our 30 amp power, please be prepared to donate towards our utilities. You are welcome to use our dump station and also hook up to our well water supply, no donation needed for those items.
There are four homes on our 21 acre farm, each with separate driveways. If your stay request is approved, please refer to the Farm Map image that marks which of the four driveways you need to use to enter the RV staging area. If your stay request is accepted - you will have access to a large map with labels to specify which driveway address to use to enter the farm.
Guests are requested to respect the private areas of the homes. We have a community park area that we all use for relaxing, watching sunsets, having a campfire, or just socializing with each other. We are politically conservative, so if that bothers you we will refrain from any political comments. However, in these difficult times - we have chosen to not accept the experimental gene therapy "vaccine". So if you have been vaccinated - you are still welcome but we will not have physical contact due to the shedding of spike proteins from vaccinated people that can infect other people with the spike proteins that can be deadly.
No off-leash or barking dogs.
No guests around the pond without specific permission.
Respect the privacy of the four homes on the farm.
No entry into any of the barns.
No smoking except within the guest's RV.
The central Park area is available for use by guests.
We are located on a county road between Riverbank and Oakdale California.
Access to the RV space is via a circular driveway with pull-through access back to our main road after opening several normally closed gates - or by turning around in a large area and leaving through the one gate used to enter the RV space.
The county road is two lane and paved. Our circular driveway is road base, and the RV space is level concrete, beside and on the north side of one of our barns. We no longer have any livestock in the barn area.
Our farm is bordered on the north side by RR tracks - and you will see and hear the trains that haul grain and lumber to local destinations near Oakdale CA. We normally get only one or two trains each 24 hours.
Unless the RV and tow are less than 30 ft total - the tow vehicle will have to be parked in a separate location nearby.
We also travel in our RV and sometimes for short trips that may not be marked off on our calendar - so please feel free to contact us to ask about availability.
