Our site was once part of a much larger farm growing tobacco and raising cattle and other farm animals.  The existing tobacco barn was built in the early 1960's.  The concrete pad used for RV camping was used to store silage for the cows.  The non-potable water source is a mountain spring that has been used on the farm since the 1930's.  While many tobacco barns in the area have been torn down for their rusted tin roofing and rustic siding, we have worked to restore the barn and preserve its history.

Loved the view and the sound of the nearby stream! Easy access to water at the RV site, plenty of firewood, and a beautiful meadow to wake up to. We got our exercise in walking up and back to our cars! Although we had three vehicles, the site was accommodating. Unfortunately, we struggled to find a spot for our two tents that was flat and not too rocky. The campsites were pretty close to each other, and our neighbors were up late. Otherwise, a sweet spot to stay for the night!

Michael was a great host. Nice quiet spot with a great view. Concrete pad was very level, the toilet was clean, and a great location near downtown Boone. We will be back!

Beautiful Views, Secluded Campsite
This is a beautiful site with amazing sunset views of the mountains. It sits on a nice property, up the hill from an old barn. It has everything I'd want in a camp, with seclusion, peace and quite, and a stream nearby. It's quite lovely. The only downside is that the campsites are straight uphill from the barn (where you park). I wasn't anticipating that, although the description said it was a walk from the car, I didn't know it was uphill. I'm in my 60's and it took a lot out of me to walk up and down the hill to get all my gear (about 3 trips). The portajohn is also at the botton, next to the barn. It would have been easier if a wagon was provided, or better description in the write-up about the hill. (I had been hiking all day and I just didn't plan on more climbing at the end of it.)

Great for RV—Quiet and peaceful
We stayed here in a campervan but it would be more suited to a self-contained unit as the porta-potty is a bit of a walk up a hill. Easy to find and just drove in and parked on cement pad. Easy to maneuver. Electric is available for an extra fee paid online.

This was a good location outside of Boone. The RV pad did have a huge puddle of water, and some trash in it when we arrived. The host responded to our question about water, but not for about 12 hours. It was a perfectly fine experience overall. And the sunset view was gorgeous.
