We are very secluded and private but in the city limits. We have 19 acres and are very close to everything Carthage. Suggested Local Attractions:We are right off Route 66, directly across from the Battle of Carthage State Park. Precious Moments Chapel is a few miles away. The historic town square and many historic local homes are less than a mile away.

    Nice place to take a rest. Across from historic park. Shady area and lots of farm animals to watch. Thanks for hosting us!

    A convenient stop while traveling Northeast. We were planning to stay 2 nights to walk the Battlefield for a travel break but the heat drove us on. Matt called us in the afternoon to explain where to park. We found a shady spot that was fairly level. We were greeted by goats and awakened with cows out our window, both experiences pretty fun. Our 31 foot class A navigated the dirt driveway and small parking field okay, but bigger rigs might struggle with the low branches. All in all, a pleasant stay and recommended.

    We stayed 3 nights in this lovely site. Thank you for being so welcoming. We were a bit confused on how to proceed to the field but Matt showed up and directed us to the perfect spot. So grateful for the experience.

    We had an awesome experience here. We met Matt and he couldn't have been more helpful and pleasant. It was pretty cool to camp near the farm animals. Very quiet and secluded spot. would definitely stop again if ever in the area.

    We had a wonderful three day stay at Idle Wild. This is a beautiful location right in Carthage Missouri. You’re right in town but you feel like you are in a state park. The hosts are wonderful and very friendly. The sites are level and easy to access.
