We purchased our 30-acre homestead in 2016 to give us a peaceful retreat on the edge of the Smoky Mountains. We have some of the best views of the Smoky Mountains. Only a five minute drive to the Tellico lakes, a short drive to the National Forest so there is plenty of fishing and hiking nearby. Our site has a fire pit, picnic table, gas grill, and comfortable chairs to enjoy the evening fire. The RV site has full hookup with 30 and 50 amp service, water and sewer. Firewood is always available and restocked daily. Our farm dogs Jack and Henry enjoy company so well behaved pets are welcome. Your hosts Stephen Nelson & Ruth Rodriguez-Nelson.Rusty Acorn Farm, over 30 acres with grand views of the Smokey Mountain National Forest and 5 minutes from a public boat access to the extensive Tellico Lake. 20 acres of open fields and 10 acres of woods. We raise pasture poultry on one part of the farm. Probably the best view of any farm in the area of the Smokey Mountains. 13 miles from Vonore. South of Knoxville approximately 40 minutes. Well-behaved pets are welcome. No crowded camping. We have only one campsite on the 30-acre property.  This site has water, electric, and sewer hookups.  There is a private fire pit for the campsite, along with a picnic table and grill.  Walk the farm and see what is growing or crowing!

What a wonderful place to stay! We cannot wait to go back in the Spring. Stephen was very helpful with helping us back in, and with anything else we may have needed. Jake and Henry (the canine hosts..lol) were very behaved. We had our dog that hasn't been around other dogs, except for his siblings, and had no problems at all. It was a very relaxing stay! We will definitely be back!

We loved the quiet beauty of this campsite. We watched the rosy colors of the sunrise over the nearby mountains each morning and enjoyed sitting by the fire each night watching the moon rise and the stars appear. We loved the tranquility of sitting by our endless fire and just being together in the moment. The setup of chairs and tables and even a grill were such a nice touch. It was even decorated with seasonal fall goodies. We had farm fresh eggs that were amazing! So many little extras that made our trip wonderful!

The best Hipcamp site this year! Hosts were there if we needed them, but gave us our privacy. Beautiful area of TN we don't get to often enough. More than ample seating around the firepit. Solar lighting was just enough light to lure you to the sitting area. We enjoyed ourselves. The family dogs came by each day to say hi, but they were no bother at all. We ventured out for scenic drives, stopped in the small towns, but really just wanted to return to The Rusty Acorn and kick back and enjoy their peacefulness.

Our best HipCamp stay yet!
My family and I have been staying at HipCamps all across America as we move cross country. Rusty Acorn, by far has been our favorite stay. The land is beautiful beyond belief, and our hosts, Stephen and his wife, went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and taken care of. Many hosts leave you to your own devices and rarely, if ever, make an effort to engage. But Stephen made a point to not only connect with us, but provided veggies from the garden, replaced a broken shade umbrella after a wind storm, and told us some great local spots to go check out that we never would have known about otherwise. He even contacted us after our stay, about an item we left behind, and agreed to ship it to us. Our entire family (me, my wife, and two kids) thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return in a heartbeat. I highly recommend it!

Ruth and Stephen are the ultimate hosts. Their 30 acre farm and the RV site have endless thoughtful touches. The firefly and star shows at night add to the beauty of the place. Jack and Henry are their good will ambassadors and fun to play with. We were gifted fresh kale, trout, radishes, herbs and we enjoyed farm fresh eggs and a scrumptious chicken. If you enjoy natural beauty and fantastic hospitality this site is for you. Our 3 week stay was absolutely fantastic! Thank you Ruth and Stephen!!!
