Midwest hospitality in the middle of Mennonite farm country

We loved our stay with Mexican Train on our way to Countryfest in nearby Cadott, Wisconsin. Such a nice and welcoming couple. Thorp, Wisconsin is right in the middle of a charming Mennonite area where you can see immaculate horses and buggies going clippity cloppety down the road all day. Our RV parking spot was next to a big barn on their 10 acre parcel of land. Kathy used to park her big rig here. They strung a 110-cord out to us which was great. Our rig looked out to a beautiful corn field to the west of us with breathtaking sunsets. And the Verizon signal is very strong. Kathy worked for over 30 years at the Veteran’s Administration as a nurse before she got the wanderlust and became a long haul trucker. She is also an Emergency Medical Technician. She has spent her entire life helping people which is her nature. He is a retired farmer and trucker himself. She took the time to come talk with us and introduce her beautiful dogs, and she invited us back for apple season when their trees are ready for picking.

Nice and Quiet

We had the privilege to stop in the heart of Wisconsin on our way to the EAA Oshkosh air show July, 2016. After checking our route we found Mexican Train along our way and about a mile off the highway out in the country. They responded to our request and greeted us with some local cheeses and a very nice parking area in front of an out building and even ran electricity for us. If you enjoy being off the beaten path and don't mind being away from it all, this is a place to check out. Thanks again

Great Location

Rural America at its finest! Had a wonderful 2 nights stay; was taken around to the local stores and eateries; and met some of the best people ever. Highly recommend Mexican Train, and if I pass this way again, would love to stay there again!

Rural America

I'd come back and stay with them again. We parked our 5th wheel in front of their barn and hooked up to a 20amp service. An occasional clip-clop of a horse and buggy - beautiful sound in the country. A few lights in the surrounding area, but not enough to block out the starry nights. A great stay with great people. Thanks Ty, Maggie & Fifi

Very peaceful spot

Kathy and Joe were very welcoming and friendly. She gave us beautiful homegrown veggies and had bought cheese curds for us. Their place is not far from the highway and easy to get to. It's a very nice place to spend the night.

Very Pleasant Site

In our tour from PEI to Lethbridge Alberta via the US, the nicest small town we enjoyed was Thorp WI. We really appreciated the hospitality of the hosts at the site in Thorp, Joel, aka Truman, and Kathleen. A few miles from the highway, this site was quiet and peaceful, qualities which we appreciate. Kathleen brought us some cheese curds from "downtown!" Can't beat that. Plus they recommended the Thorp meat market, which was terrific, as well as Sweet Memories bakery. A fine meat market and bakery go a long way to making a site "extra" special! We spent a few dollars in Thorp!
