Location

Access Road Conditions: Access to our camping site is a short gravel drive. The street has a curve with camber (slanted surface) at our drive which results in a hump to get over while turning into the drive. Large fifth wheels and trailers over 25 ft could have trouble getting over the hump without interference. There is space for more than one camper for RV'ers traveling together. We have two 30 AMP receptacles that are side by side. A second camper would need a long cord to hook up. No problem for extra campers not requiring electricity . We have easy access with plenty of room to pull in and turn around. There is no requirement for long distance backing. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: There is plenty of tow vehicle parking space available near your camper. Our campsite is on the side of large mowed field.

    Location of parking space has a wonderful view of open fields, some scattered with pecan trees. Safe, level, quiet except for occasional road noise, which was not bad at all. Hosts could not have been more kind and engaging. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend to others.

    I enjoyed my stay at Shady Rest! The setting is just stunning and Terry was quick to assist in connecting the electric. Cece and I had a wonderful stroll through the field under the pecan trees. She loved chasing the grasshoppers! Thank you so much and we look forward to staying again!
