We typically will be there to greet you.
Access Road Conditions: Please call or text an hour before your Arrival so I can tell you descriptives for finding our driveway and not passing it up. A Yukon has pulled a 32’ plus camper up this gravel inclined driveway with no problem. (A large bus or class A will have difficulty at our entrance because of its turning radius.) I would suggest ‘wide turn’ to all total rigs (auto+camper) over 25 feet. The beginning part of this driveway is inclined for about 10 yards, then begins level off. A novice driver with a gas powered single cab pickup without four wheel drive, towed a 30’ camper to this site and it did just fine! Upon exiting we suggest a wide angle turn at the gate to avoid taking our trees with you or leaving your rear wheel in our culvert…😳 Also caution exiting driveway, stop, look, listen, then look again. People use this stretch of highway to pass slow cars…😬 Property is large enough to turn rig around or drive thru if you’re not good at backing if ground is DRY! Tow Vehicle Parking Details: You may stay attached or become detached.
Hosted By Fieldforest
campers, hikers, cyclists Details: While grounded in our original geographic area and involved in our community, we are searching for new experiences through camping, traveling, meeting new people and making new friends. We enjoy learning about people of all ages and abilities from other areas. We're also investigating "off grid living" and repurposing. Interested in the 'simple life' but not quite ready to jump in yet! We love the outdoors, open spaces, warm breezes, star/moon gazing. Home Town: Memphis TN Favorite Boondocking Locations: Walmart, maybe? Prefer a Boondockers welcome host! Skills or Expertise to Share: General knowledge and experience in various subjects: history, music, bicycling. We both enjoy music. We ARE from Memphis you know... We enjoy creating something from nothing. We enjoy the stillness of the night and nature’s sounds.

Super nice friendly hosts. Met me at the gate and made sure I was safely and happily parked. Nice quiet well maintained meadow surrounded by trees. I would definitely stay there again.

Quiet, peaceful setting. Level parking. Gracious, friendly host. Getting in and out is tight, but host communicated that in advance. We enjoyed kayaking the Ghost Section of the Wolf River and the location was convenient for that.

This is a beautiful spot to park. Very quiet and nostalgic. Our host was very communicative and gave very good directions. It is difficult to get into and out of but we were told of this in advance. Overall, good stay.

This is sort of a hidden getaway campsite for the hosts which they are sharing with other travelers. It requires a bit of alertness to locate, but the host was on the phone with us three times as well as texting and when we cruised that final stretch of road, one of them was out there waiting to wave us down and into the driveway. The driveway was fine for our 28' skoolie, a grassy track that wound up a short hill before breaking into a large clearing amidst chest-high grasses surrounded by relatively young growth forest. The arrival area has gravel base and we turned about without issue and parked on a surprisingly level patch while easily leaving room for the family cars to arrive or depart. No hookups, so expect to boondock, but the AT&T was strong and open sky overhead fed the solar panels. The family provided a cheerful welcome, providing a leisurely walking tour of the wooded paths and small pond before leaving us to unpack. We settled in quickly and then we were eating dinner (from our own supplies) while listening mostly to trees and the occasional car passing by below. The night was quiet and peaceful, with neighboring lights visible in the distance without drowning out the stars. No wildlife came rummaging around and the Host tells us there are no bear known to be in the area. Smaller critters were visible or left traces, and a large raptor spent some time overhead before dark, but nothing to concern visitors (except maybe ladybugs, which seemed to like the place.) We slept well in the fresh air and arose refreshed to prepare for the one-hour trip to Memphis. My wife and I agreed this was one of the most pleasant experiences of our trip to date. Although it was low-key and without exciting tourist dazzle, it was the perfect answer to our desire for a quiet night in a safe and friendly environment. We will definitely return and we recommend the location to anyone interested in a no-nonsense layover with a peaceful natural setting. From warm welcome to departing smiles and waves, a solid glimpse into Harvest Host hospitality at its best.

What an excellent stop for us! We loved the privacy being tucked away on this property and yet still close enough to Memphis. FieldForest has a level parking spot on gravel/grass. Our hostess met us to show us where to set up to make sure we didn't run into trouble with the rains expected that night. We had a great time getting a tour of her property and enjoyed some great conversation before she headed home. Looking forward to having a chance to host her at our place some day.
