About
Experience the gentle hum of alpacas as you set up camp in the heart of a flourishing homestead that blends crafting passion with pastoral serenity. Welcome to a unique RV camping spot, where the undulating fibers of hand-spun dreams create a tapestry of rural charm just a stone's throw from the enchanting Shawnee National Forest and the famed Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. This bucolic 10-acre retreat boasts an intimate connection to nature, where you can relax in your RV alongside the company of alpacas. Indulge in the craftsmanship of RV camping where the soft touch of locally-produced alpaca yarn weaves its way into every aspect of your stay. Campers can revel in the tranquility offered by the farm's proximity to Lick Creek, while still enjoying the comforts of their home on wheels. For hobbyists and crafting aficionados, this is the paradise of soft, luxurious alpaca yarn, cultivated and crafted on-site. Discover the meticulous process of raising, shearing, skirting, and spinning the fiber into yarntransforming it into exquisite products that celebrate the artistry of handcrafting. The products are not only perfect for your crafting projects but also make unique, locally-sourced keepsakes. The ranch is a family-friendly destination, welcoming your furry companions as long as they stay leashed and close to your RV. Service animals are also honored guests with just a simple inquiry ahead of time. RV campers looking for an escape wrapped in the comfort of nature's quilt, a connection to traditional crafts, and proximity to outdoor and oenophilic adventures, will find this location a matchless choice. Turn off the beaten path and steer your RV towards an unforgettable pastoral respite where alpacas graze, creativity flourishes, and the peaceful embrace of rural life is yours to enjoy.
