This was a great stop while traveling from Michigan to Texas for a convention. Staff was very friendly and escorted us to our site. Nice large clean pull-through that was very level and we certainly appreciated the cleanliness of everything.

Had a great time at Red Barn RV Park. I was the Elks 409 Elk herd. Friendly, helpful and made sure I was fine or needed anything. Best of all the welcoming cookies were so good. Looking forward to our trip back next spring.

Overall a good campground with mature trees and reasonably sized lots. Sites easily accessible and park reasonably clean and quiet. Not a lot of amenities, e.g. no playground for kids. Only complaint was that the lady at front desk and patrolling grounds was quite rude to use on several occasions and was generally unfriendly. We are accustomed to very welcoming... More

Superb service, accommodations, and beautiful surroundings. Very friendly hosts, large level pads, sparkling clean restrooms with plenty of hot water. Just wear your shower shoes, as the grid floors aren't barefoot friendly! So very dog friendly with access to a huge field owned by the church next door. I look forward to coming back in the spring for a business... More

Thank you for your review it helps us serve you better. The staff person you spoke of was a work camper and most of them take a while to get comfortable on the computer program.

I made our reservation online and immediately had a confirmation, along with a welcome. On the way we had many side stops to make and realized we were going to be arriving much later than we had planned. I emailed them to let them know of our late arrival and they responded with a thank you and instructions for us.... More

This was one of the most pleasurable stays at an RV Park I have ever experienced. The parking spot were spacious and level. There was a picnic table and nice grassy area for a bar-b-que or just sitting relaxing with the family. The campground is well laid out with easy entrance and exit. Plenty of pull through, full hook ups... More

We had a pleasant enough experience. Nice big sites, quiet country setting. Bathrooms were a little disappointing, one shower was out of service so my daughters and I opted to shower in the camper instead. Would most likely stay here again if I pass through this area another time.
