This wide nook in the forest across from an open field is the only spot on the ranch for car or camper camping. There are lots of trees for shade and hammock use. At night there is no light pollution making it perfect for watching the fireflies emerge and for stargazing on the nearby knoll. A small stream separates the two sites, making it a great place for a multi family

There are many things to do on or near our property during your stay. Hike our trail up to the rock tower and arch at the entrance of the holler. Our host is happy to show you waterfalls, rock houses, rock cliffs , and other points of interest on the property but we also encourage you to go exploring on your own! While you shouldn't plan on cell reception here, we do have wifi at the main farmhouse that you are welcome to use, which is about a quarter mile drive from the campsite. Yatesville lake is only 15 minutes away, and Paintsville lake is 30 minutes away. Your host is on-site, but keeps true farmers hours, so you will generally not see him after dark. We are happy to give you privacy, or show you around the ranch depending on your interests. Lots of interesting flora, fauna, and rock cliffs to be seen on our property.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
For a planned trip down to Kentucky to explore the graveyards of my ancestors - this quiet little hollow was a perfect place to call home base! Joanna had me all set up with lots of firewood and even loaned me her personal map of the area which made my explorations possible! The site was clean and easily accessible right off the road. To be clear - the "road" is close to you, but it is actually more like a driveway with little to no traffic. You wake to the sounds of the farm and little else!
Beautiful spot in the hills
Such a wonderful spot, and great hosts! We were a little lost at first but they found us, and then brought some veggies from their garden for us too! Really nice. And several nice fire pits, lots of wood, plus trails right near by as well as a creek. Highly recommend.
