Hoosier's on the Ridge is the site of thousands of family memories. The land previously hosted a small little cabin that my grandmother would spend her summers in. It is a hop, skip, and a jump through the woods from my mother's house so there were many a nights running back and forth between the two. Sadly, our beloved cabin in the woods burned down years ago and has since been a spot for our family to get outside and allow the dogs to run and play.  I have managed to maintain the property in order to prevent nature from completely reclaiming the area where the cabin once stood. However, considering our property stretches around 15 acres there is plenty of wilderness to be had. I only maintain the two camp site locations and the rest is untouched.  Upon entering the driveway you will find camp site 1 on your left situated in a quaint meadow. The driveway then continues about a 1/4 mile down to camp site 2 which will open into an opening where one could park their trailer, etc. Further down there is another field which hosts a picnic table and another fire pit. Beyond site 2 there is a deep valley with a stream that runs through. On the other side of the valley there is a large horse farm but on the other side of that, Hoosier National Forest begins.  I hope our guests enjoy this property as much as my family has and continues to do so!  Learn more about this land: Please read the whole description and photo captions-  Also: Please be sure to check out the "extras" and add them before booking for the camper trailer, firewood, bike rentals, hiking options, and much more!  Follow us on Instagram and tag us #HoosiersOnTheRidge  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.

Camping at Riley's!
My husband and I loved camping at Riley's campsite. We rented the front site and it was so beautiful. We were fully surrounded by trees. It was a peaceful night with beautiful scenery.

Primitive Camping for 2
Super nice area! The first and last sites are by far the best. While the middle site is woodsy, it is small, slanted, and less private from the other sites. Riley was a helpful host, and the site amenities were great. We will be back!

Middle Site B
Private campsite surrounded by tree
Lovely campsite surrounded by gorgeous mature trees. Picnic table and a bench for cooking prep. Owners dogs are so sweet and friendly. We had a two night stay on the back campsite - very private. I have a feeling that campers other than Hip Campers use the sites, but we did our part and left the place pristine.

Middle Site B
The back site is spacious, we set up two tents and a canopy and still had plenty of room! All the sites are well kept. Highly recommend adding yoga to your experience, and don’t forget to check out downtown Nashville!
