We did not meet the hosts during our stay. I do not think they were home. We appreciated being able to stay even though they were not there. The parking was back-in driveway in a quiet neighborhood. Electric available and a water hose to top up water tanks. Cute herd of goats next door. Close enough to Springfield for easy shopping and touring.

We really enjoyed our time here. It was hot so it was nice to have access to electricity to run the AC. A quiet place to stay with no difficulty getting our 41’ fifth wheel parked. You do have to back in but that wasn’t a problem. We’d stay there again! Loved the ability to stay more than one night.

Jerry was a wonderful host! Super friendly and informative. We would definitely stay again when in the area. The space was quiet and level and we loved watching the goats next door and visiting with his dog, Rusty.
