No loud noise from people or animals. Keep pets on a leash. We can only give you power for 2 nights of your stay. The first night and the night before you leave. (This is a County ordnance) if you stay 2 days you have power the whole time.
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.

Our host met us as we arrived around sunset and guided us into our stay. Although we didn't use the 30A electrical supply it would have been very appreciated if the weather had been bad. Fortunately our solar system kept us in electricity without any problems. Our host and I had some great conversations. He showed me his RV that he built himself from a bare utility box trailer - a job well done. We would certainly stay at Richs Barn again. Thanks!

Nice level spot, easy in and out. We enjoyed great conversation with Rich and Jill, they were wonderful hosts. Loved their DIY camper/trailer tour! The sunsets were amazing and we watched the stars come out each evening. Rich gave us information about local parks to hike awesome trails. We were also grateful to have a place to leave trash. Thank you Rich and Jill!
