"From Rico B - My wife and I found this beautiful peace of heaven about 5 years ago while visiting friends in Fayetteville. We live in Cincinnati, Ohio and searched a place to stay in our RV, this place popped up, so we called and spoke to the owner of the property who told us “come on down”. We contacted Beate (very welcoming caretaker of the property) and told her we’d be coming in around 5pm, she said grab a spot and make yourself at home. We had no idea what to expect as we travel in our RV 8-10 times a year and are use to both franchised parks and state parks. As we pulled in to the 600 acres complex our jaws dropped and our eyes lit up with approval… what a place. This place is so peaceful, quiet and beautiful. The sites are very, very spacious with electric some 30 & 50 amps, water (make sure to add a filter to your hose), a dump site, Wi-Fi and 360 degrees of post card picturesque grounds. Beate met us at the site and greeted us, welcomed our 2 fur babies to roam the grounds so long as they steered clear of the horses. Beate is a very nice hostess and we felt at home the 4 days we were there. The place is 10 minutes from everything should you need anything (Kroger grocery, Walmart, UDF, Restaurants, gas, thrift stores and our friends were only 10 minutes from us. We really never wanted to leave, but we have a life in Cincinnati and so as we were pulling out to head home we asked Beate if we could return the next year and she said that we were welcome to come back anytime. The place does not have the feel of any place we’ve ever stayed, it feels like you’re staying with family parked on this sprawling property. Needless to say we returned in 2020 but could not go in 2021 due to the Covid lock down. We plan on heading back April 14, 2022 to get a much needed break from the city life and enjoy doing absolutely nothing but relax and take in the fresh country air. Thank you for making this our most loved place to be… see you soon!"
