We purchased six wooded acres adjacent to the Norfork Lake Corp of Engineers land in 2016. We have cleared about three acres and put up two metal buildings (one of which we have partially converted to a home). We have a gravel driveway onto the property that requires a 90 degree turn to get into. We can make the turn with our 45' 5th-wheel but it can be tight for larger rigs. We have a 30 amp connection on the side of the main building, a 50 amp RV Panel next to the driveway with water and plenty of power to run 110 volt drop lines if necessary. We have our own well on the property that provides great water quality so guests can hook up to either of the two outside faucets. We have an inside dog that runs off-leash when we are outside with her. You are welcome to bring pets as long as they get along with ours. Parking is not a problem for tow vehicles. Our place is very quiet and remote with great lake access. I run a business from my home so I am around most of the time. Suggested Local Attractions:We have a .8 mile gravel access road adjacent to our property that leads to a boat launch for Norfork Lake. We are also close to hiking trails and about 8 miles from Mountain Home, Arkansas where you can find shopping and supplies.

House Rules

We are Christ-followers and live a conservative lifestyle. I am also a retired police officer. You are welcome to have legally-owned firearms on our property but please keep them in your rig and out of site. You are welcome to have alcohol on our property as long as you are of age and consume responsibly. We do not allow any form of recreational drug use or possession on our property, even if it is legal in our state. We have zero tolerance for drugs or excessive alcohol use, you will be escorted off our property immediately and not allowed to return. We live in the country but do have neighbors across the street so we ask that you be respectful of others in our neighborhood. We prefer that generators are not run after 10 pm unless they are of a newer low decibel type. For larger rigs running multiple air conditioners in the summer heat, we ask you to consider a $15 daily donation from June 1 through October 31.

Location

Access Road Conditions: We turn around in the gravel lot and head back out the way we came. There is a 3.5 mile road from State Route 5 to our location. The road is a two-lane, striped, black-topped county road that is very well maintained. However, this is Arkansas and the road is curvy with a few hills. I don't have any problem with my 45' Riverstone. The Corp of Engineers used to run a campground just down from our property that was shut down many years ago so the road has seen many campers over the years. If you are willing to do some curves and a hill or two, the view from our area and the access to Norfork Lake is worth it! We have raised the canopy on our driveway to accommodate taller vehicles so you don't have to worry about scratching your rig. I work from home and will be here most of the time to help campers get turned around and positioned where they want to be. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: We have six acres of land with unlimited space for tow vehicles. In most cases, you can remain hooked to your rig or simply unhook to level up and remain close. If you come when it is raining, we have a large gravel area you can park in. If the weather is nice, you can pull right up next to your vehicle in the grass if you want. Arkansas is very rocky and our place takes that to the extreme. The ground is very hard and will support most any rig without issue.

Now we have added boating on Lake Norfork, searching for waterfalls, national parks, and working around our new property. My hobbies include woodworking, tinkering with small engines, and general home repair while my wife enjoys flowers, baking, and spending time together.

    Stayed for several nights as I regrouped and continued to plan my escape from the Wisconsin cold. Really enjoyed the Mountain Home area, and the hosts here were super helpful and accommodating. Definitely go down to the lake! It was so peaceful and quiet. Wanted more time to explore the trails and other things the area could offer. This one is worth a several night stay. Very good T-Mobile signal here.

    What a beautiful area to stay for a couple nights! TnT's property was nestled in the trees, with a level gravel pad and electric and water! It was so peaceful and quiet out there and we really enjoyed our stay. Now, on to the host. He is a great reminder that there are still wonderful people out there! From the minute we met, Tim made us feel welcomed and comfortable being there! Our second night there, we were to have bad storms. Our host messaged to let us know and to tell us we could come inside if it became a tornado warning because he wanted our family to be safe. We appreciated the gesture, but settled in for bed. Then the alarms sounded and we headed in. We never felt anything but welcomed as we rode out the warning together and we enjoyed getting some time to talk all things travel! Thank you Tim for everything!!

    Great place and great host! This is our second time staying with this host and we’d still stay again if we’re in the area. we particularly liked the easy access to the road down to the lake that we enjoyed walking on. We planned to go canoeing on the lake also but ran out of time. Our host were gone most of the time we were there so we were very appreciative that they even allowed us to be there when they were not there…but that just seems to be the type of people they are. The little time we did have to visit with our host, it was like talking to old friends. Thanks so much TNT for a peaceful stay.
