Boxcar Family Escape

· Rose Hill, Butler, Kansas
1 acre hosted by Teresa C.
1 RV/tent site
Climb to the top of a rustic train boxcar and take in the beautiful Kansas country sky. Our peaceful property is a perfect escape while still being only 10 minutes from gas, grocery, and restaurants in Rose Hill. Derby Walmart Supercenter is 20 minutes away, and Wichita proper is just a 25-30 minute drive. 29 Mile away you have El Dorado State Park which is a showstopper of family fun! Located in the Flint Hills, this park has an immense wildlife area, over 8,000 acres of water, and 98 miles of shoreline (think beaches and coolers filled with cold beer). While you are here, you can take your boat on this expansive lake to explore it all while you fish for your dinner. Back on the land you’ll be beckoned by picturesque hiking trails, biking trails, and horse trails. There is a wide variety of campsites on the shoreline, offering the perfect vista to see the moon and stars reflected back into the lake. Kansas magic at its best! Meet our friendly indoor/outdoor cats, and maybe even spot a deer in the surrounding fields as you relax around the fire pit. Visitors in June can even harvest fresh mulberries from several trees surrounding the camping area. We commonly see deer, squirrels, rabbits, and a large variety of birds. We've occasionally spotted bald eagles in our surrounding trees. No pets allowed. Set up a tent in any of several flat areas in our grassy, regularly mowed backyard and relax by the fire pit to the sounds of a country evening. If you're feeling adventurous, climb to the top of the historic boxcar, bounce on the trampoline, or use our (kid-sized) zipline. We live in the main house toward the front of the property where you will park, and while we will be available if you need anything we love to let our guests enjoy the peaceful country air without any interruptions. Bring your own firewood, or contact us ahead of time to have some bundles ready for an extra fee.

Teresa was amazing! She was super informative and clear when we showed up. The place was quiet and peaceful, exactly what we were looking for to get away from our highway trip. Hopefully yall get to experience the boxcar too!

Great Little Spot Outside of Town
We had a great time tent camping at this nice little quiet spot just outside of town. The host was very friendly and accommodating. My dad and I rode our bicycles from Wichita as a way to relax and to start training for longer adventures later in the year.
