This property used to host a little cabin in the woods but sadly it burned down. What remains is a picturesque location with 3 sites on 12 acres. Campers can set up tents, hammocks, or even small RVs/trucks. 

There are three main areas in which to set up camp. For reference, the blue hammock is the front site, red the middle, and green the back in the more recent pictures (1-9). First, upon entering the driveway, there is a meadow to the left with a fire pit, 2 picnic tables, and tiki torches that is flat grass surrounded by forestry (front site/site 1). The second one is on your left after coming into the clearing in the driveway turnaround area. Here there is a flat spot(s) for tent(s), a fire pit, and is surrounded by forest. Parking is available along the tree line about 15 ft from the tent site area (Middle site/site 2). Site three is at the end of the driveway where the cabin used to stand and it too is mostly flat grass but gradually declines into the valley (Back site/site 3). This section also has two fire pits, a picnic table, hammock, etc., and is surrounded by trees. On particularly busy weekends, the back site can be divided into two separate sites so that more people can enjoy the natural wonderland! At the end of the driveway, there is room to park vehicles/small RVs, but beware the turnaround is tough. 

The property is 10-15 minutes from BC3 Frisbee Golf Course and a stones throw from Yellowwood State Forest which has many hikes, and connects to the Tecumseh Trail. Yellowwood Lake is less than 5 miles away.  You can even walk. Lake Lemon is a five minute drive. If you are looking for a peaceful spot that's close to Nashville or Bloomington .... come stay with us !! 

*When viewing the pictures, please read the captions as they tell which site is which. I wouldn't want your expectations not to be met, if you prefer a specific spot for a specific reason just let me know and I will do my best to accommodate your needs! 

*

To those with an RV/Camper- please contact me in advance, our maximum length of the whole rig is ~35ft. I also must insist that generators not be used as they are loud and disrupt the peaceful nature of the campsites and may hinder the experience of those at the other site. If you absolutely need power, I can run an extension cord but this is as a last resort. Finally, please do not pull your vehicle beyond where it is outlined to be- for example if there is a tree cut down to section off the grass vs. driveway, please do not move it. :) 

*If you are interested in organizing a hunting trip, this is a perfect location as there is plenty of hunting to be done in Yellowwood! 

*For those who absolutely require water access, you may fill tanks (5 gal/day stayed) at our house next door.

We had such a great time at Hoosier’s on the Ridge. Riley is very friendly and has the cutest pups! They played so well with ours and we loved that our pups could run free. We stayed at site 3 and loved how private is was. We will be back!

Beautiful place in the woods, you can see it is well maintained by somebody who likes the forest. We had a very peaceful night and we will be back whenever we are traveling in the area.

Riley was a great post. Checked in with us, and even took the time to introduce his dogs to ours. Great location, plenty of wood around for a fair price. Right on the doorstep to Yellowwood State Forest. Great, large spot up front. Close to Nashville and Bloomington. Couldn't ask for more.
