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.

    Beautiful property and nice hosts even though it rained! Fun to watch the wild turkeys in the field.

    Great communication with our host, Terry. He even sent photos showing us the approach to the property. We arrived as it was getting dark, so Terry was at the road to guide us in. We had a lovely place to park, complete with a picnic table! Had some time chatting with Terry upon arrival and again in the morning before we left. We definitely would like to stay again when we come through this way.

    I arrived later than originally planned (after dark), but Terry still met me by the road and guided me into where I needed the park, showed me the power hook ups and we had a nice visit that night and a little bit the next morning (unfortunately, I was short on time). I got up early and walked his 80 acres for a little bit of exercise, which was a tremendous bonus for a country boy like me. I’m excited to come back and stay longer, so we have more time to visit!

    We had a very nice stay at Shady Rest. Power availability was a nice bonus. Enjoyed walking around the property and visiting with the host. This was a perfect stay and we will come back.
