The property is located just on the outskirts of the town of Portland, Indiana. It is a country feel with the nearby conveniences of town. Laundry mat, Walmart, Dollar Tree, city parks, and a variety of restaurants are within 2 miles. The property features my beautiful 1950's red brick home, and 2 restored red historic barns surrounded by farm fields. Parking is always available in front of the barns on gravel. When the ground isn't too soft, you can also park within the couple acres of open, mowed ground behind the barns. 30 amp electricity is available near the barns. Leashed pets are welcome.Property is an former farmstead. There are two beautifully restored historic barns on the property that, along with my red brick home, highlight the property. The property is a long narrow lot with a couple acres of open, mowed grassy space to enjoy behind the barns. Campfire space is available back here. An hill with an interesting history crosses the back of the lot at an angle. The hill is the remnant of an old railroad line that was only in service for a short period of time. The engine for the line was shipped to Europe for war and the line was never put back into service afterwards. The ship carrying the engine never made it as it sunk in the Atlantic in route. Most of the farmers tore the rail line hill out, but this section remains in place. Parking is always available on the gravel areas around the barns. The grassy, back lot is flat, but low in places. When the ground isn't too wet, you may also choose to park to camp on any of the grass behind the barns. A 30 AMP electrical plug-in is available outside one of the barns. If you need water hook-up, we can connect to the faucet in one of the barns. Property is only 1 mile to Portland - laundry mat, Walmart, Dollar Tree and several restaurants are all just up the road.

Farmstead Camp Spot
Awesome views!
We found Audrey’s listing with only a two hours notice and she accepted us right away. She lives just outside of Portland’s city limits and right down the road from a really nice park and a Walmart if you need anything. Her property is BEAUTIFUL! It was super simple to just pull in and park, hookup up electric and water, and relax. We have two little boys, 5 and 3, and she brought one of her bulldogs out to play. Audrey is very nice and friendly. You won’t be disappointed if you need a place to stop through for a night or two!
