Location

Access Road Conditions: You have to back off a paved road that is about 2 foot above the parking area ground level. Once you leave the paved road you are on grass and sand. Have had up to 30 foot trailer pulled by a truck that backed in with no problem. You will be parked by a pole barn. Vehicles longer than 30 feet need to call so we can check the ground. This is a sandy area and if we do not get rain larger rigs up to 45 might have problems. So please call after booking to check out the yard conditions. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Park with your rig.

    Rich and Jill are easygoing, helpful, and a lot of fun to chat with. They know a lot about central Florida and, surprisingly, about not only RV life (be sure to check out their DIY trailer) but also boating life, having done The Great Loop. You won’t find better hosts than these ones. We did stopovers with them in both directions through Florida.

    - Great Communication - Was a really nice touch offering us a trash can - Down to earth and made us fell welcome. We can see why so many have stopped at Rich's Barn.

    Friendly contacts, warm and welcoming presence for our arrival. Rich and Jill took the time to share their travellers experience all over North America. Have a look on their travel trailer and boat tells you how Rich is an amazing "outside the box" clever thinker. We will come back for sure if in the area again.
