About
Immerse yourself in the bucolic charm of a family-driven homestead, where the joy of RV camping converges with the enriching experience of farm life. Situated in close proximity to the serenity of Clinton Lake, our country retreat is an ideal waypoint for those looking to connect with nature, indulge in agri-tourism, and savor farm-fresh produce, all while enjoying the comforts of their home-on-wheels. Easily accessible from surrounding cities, we provide a tranquil escape where guests can revel in the simplicity of pastoral living. Engage with our growing family's journey towards self-sufficiency on our vibrant 2-acre plot. Witness firsthand our dedication to harvesting from the land, from our flock of chickens and quail to our burgeoning orchards and garden beds brimming with vegetables, herbs, and cut-flowers. 2023 is a milestone year for us, marking the introduction of alpaca husbandry into our fold. The arrival of baby alpacas will not only enrich our homesteading practices but also provide educational encounters for visitors interested in these gentle, eco-friendly creatures. For those looking to extend the pleasure of lakeside life, the nearby beach and plethora of outdoor activities like hiking, boating, and fishing offer endless recreation. Meanwhile, RV travelers will find convenience in our on-site amenities which include 30 amp electrical hookups (with a 20 amp outlet), available Wi-Fi, and water connections, ensuring comfort during your stay. As culinary enthusiasts, we delight in sharing the fruits of our labor. Treat yourself to a symphony of flavors with our selection of garden-harvested berries or indulge in our gastronomic crafts like artisan sourdough bread and handcrafted pizzas. From the freshly collected eggs to the whimsical joy of a s'mores basket by the fire, each offering is a reflection of our homegrown passion. Rates for additional nights and our suite of country offerings come at a modest suggested donation. Presence here is not just about the pause in your journey; it's an invitation to partake in a lifestyle that cherishes the roots of our food and the earth it springs from. Embark on a rustic adventure where modern RV camping meets the timeless rhythms of farm life. We invite you to share in the simple pleasures and pastoral views of our home, where each sunrise brings new lessons in living off the land, and every sunset promises a night of peaceful rest under the stars. Join us for a stay that's sure to sow seeds of memory in the heart of the traveler.
