Perfect. I was on a solo bicycle camping trip from Nashville to St. Louis. The host was very nice, advised where to camp to avoid ticks and showed me an area behind a wall where I could hose off in privacy. Her young son helped me set up my tent.
I texted as requested a few hours before I expected to arrive. My estimate was off (late) by at least an hour but that didn’t seem to bother her and she came over less than 30 minutes after I arrived.
There was almost no traffic on the road at the site so I just went to the back of the property behind a tree to use the bucket, which the host provided with garbage bags as a liner. I found it easier to use my own GoAnywhere bags as a liner and pack them out. I brought my own TP.
Plenty of potable water available from the hose. I couldn’t find a place to hang my food bag so I attached it with bungie cords to the top of a wrought iron gate. I have the Ratsack so it can be hard to tell if any critters found it but I saw no sign of any attempts and all my food was there in the morning.
The location itself was lovely. The goats were cute and stayed in their enclosure. Nice view of pastures. There was plenty of shade and it was very quiet. There was no rain, but the location was high so I don’t imagine there would be any flooding risk.
There were some difficult hills (for a loaded bike) once I got off 79, but rt 79 itself had a very wide shoulder and was an easy ride.
I was supposed to spend 2 nights, but I woke up that first (Sunday) morning so well-rested I decided to take advantage of the lighter Sunday traffic to reach Land Between the Lakes. I’m glad I did, as the traffic was very light and made things easier for me, but I would have gladly spent another night here as it was very quiet and pleasant.
There weren’t that many bugs (early Sept) and the tables and chairs made mealtime easy. There was a grocery/convenience store on the way to the site from rt 79, but I didn’t go in as I had just stocked up in Clarksville.
Absolutely beautiful! I set up my tent in a shady wooded spot just past the red barn, so I was close to the water, outhouse and shower, but it felt like I was in the middle of the forest. It was quiet and peaceful. I wish I could have stayed longer and done some hiking around the property.
Greg was a great host. I will definitely stay here again if I’m if I’m passing through this area.
