About
Embark on an RV camping retreat where the rugged meets the mechanical, a unique spot where agricultural ingenuity complements the grandeur of the Colorado mountains. Spread across two ample acres, our location invites you to park your home-on-wheels within view of towering peaks, offering an expansive setting that warmly welcomes even the grandest of big rigs. This is a place where the pastoral beauty of Colorado unfolds before you, offering a serene backdrop as you unwind amidst nature. While our main expertise lies in finessing the mechanics of John Deere and other agricultural equipment in our single-mechanic shop, our open space provides the perfect canvas for your peaceful getaway. We do not offer products for sale, but we invite you to support our community's future by considering a donation to our children's 4-H group, the Platte River Pioneers. Your contributions to foster agricultural education and development can be made via cash, check, or Venmo, nurturing the roots of tomorrow's custodians of the land. Whether you're here to relax under the vast Colorado sky, or simply taking a respite on your journey through the heartland of America, your stay helps us cultivate the skills and passions of young minds in agriculture. So park your RV, breathe in the mountain air, and enjoy the unique blend of industry and tranquility at this memorable stop on your travels.

At this time in the season, we do not have items to sell; however, during the summer we have a large garden, and may offer jellies, canned veggies, etc.
House Rules
Please avoid vegetation/field areas, as there are sandburs on the property. We are here to help, and love to chat so please message, text or call host with late arrivals, or when you need assistance with anything. We both work from home either in the white shop or through the walk-door of the attached garage. Stop in if you'd like to check in personally, or chat!
Parking & Arrival
Please park on the south side of the white shop building if you need 30 amp electric service (first come, first served). The outlet is on the wall about 4' above the ground. If you don't need service feel free to park anywhere on the gravel driveway that doesn't block access to garage/shop.
