Ruth and Stephen have a stunning piece of property in Eastern Tennessee. Surrounded by farmland and mountains, there is nothing but beautiful vistas in every direction. They are doing an incredible job building a nice little homestead with a cabin, barn, chickens, and gardens all coming up nicely. Their spot is great for HipCampers and has several beautiful places to set up camp. A fire pit sits atop a nice knoll with views into Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and a camp shower and very clean outhouse have been built nearby. Our hosts were welcoming and even gave us some fresh eggs before sending us on our way. We can’t recommend Rusty Acorn enough!

We loved this campsite! Gorgeous view, great location near the park. The facilities are well maintained and our hosts went out of their way (showed us around the farm and gave us our privacy) to make sure our stay was memorable. The kids can't wait to go back and stay longer!

If you ever get the chance to visit Rusty Acorn Farm, DO IT! Not only is the view breath taking, but your hosts, Steve and Ruth, are most definitely the most interesting people in Tennessee. When we arrived we were greeted by Steve who gave us a grand tour of the property and let us meet all the animals. We were able to pick any spot to camp so if there are multiple campers you will still have complete privacy. Plus, everything that Steve has built for the campers is amazing! They were able to make an outhouse and outdoor shower seem cozy and clean! We had the firepit all to ourselves and it kept us warm as we stargazed (you can see thousands from here!) and roasted marshmallows. To finish off our trip Ruth cooked us the best homemade breakfast I have ever had and hung out with us while we played with the dogs and ate our food. We recommend this site 110% and are already planning a trip back in the fall!

My husband and I had a fantastic experience at Rusty Acorn Farm. When we arrived there was already a fire going with plenty of firewood to get us through a fairly cold night. Once we got settled, Stephen came by with his sweet dog Henry to bring us some eggs (which we enjoyed for breakfast in the morning). The campsite was clean, private, and had a fantastic view. We would definitely recommend.
