We will have bands Friday night through Sunday Morning a very large bonfire, food and lots of great company. Usually a few hundred people arrive for this event. We will ask for a $20 donation for each person on top of the camping fees which go directly to the bands. If you have any questions about this event or anything else, please feel free to contact me.
We are a 60 acre homestead that is 55 acres of wooded land and 5 acres of groomed land. There is about 3 miles of trails on the land (if you follow each trail from end to end) and some interesting topography with 100 foot of elevation change, 2 springs, 3 sink holes, a dry creek system and a treehouse that I live in. We have quite a few caves in the area, Patoka lake is about 30 minutes West and Louisville is about 45 minutes East.
We are all solar powered and off the grid and we even have a stage.
Camping can be in the Black Walnut Grove, in an open field or a shady grove. We like to interact with people or you can keep to yourself and have a quiet getaway in the woods.

The vibe at Black Walnut Grove at Happy Hollow
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
It was a wonderful stay, we got our privacy but also got to chat with the host and other campers. It was a beautiful piece of land. Outhouse is one of the best I've ever seen/been in. Would go back again if ever passing through !
WOW! We had a blast! What a wonderful property with so much to do and see! Rope swing, trails, tire swing, cool tree house, cabin, bee hives, water springs, and more! Also the dog, Charlie, was so amazing! Kerry the host is very cool and welcoming. Highly recommend!
Kerry was a very helpful host, accommodating us in the dead of winter with an abundance of firewood to burn and helpful tips about where to camp on his property (you get to choose your own!) His land is diverse and great for all-season camping - including a well-decorated outhouse, potable water, tire swing, and outdoor stage for lipsync battles.
Black Walnut Grove was a great overnight getaway from Louisville. Kerry’s property is perfect for popping up a tent and unplugging. We opted for a shady spot near the best out house I will probably ever visit. There were gorgeous groves more secluded that I may try next time. The well-maintained forest had a nice trail featuring a flowing natural spring and a bee hive. There’s an open field optimal for stargazing. Kerry was a gracious host who went above and beyond to make sure we had a nice trip. Sampson the lovable dog was a welcomed visitor to our campsite and got along great with my dog. We also enjoyed learning about off-grid living, the garden and the chickens. We’ll definitely be back. It’s such a great weekend retreat close to Louisville.
