Having traveled with Jane, my late wife, for a number of years before her passing; she and I would often talk about the excitement of owning and operating our own RV Campground! Following each stay, we would put our heads together and rate the park much like Good Sam’s Club would; always paying close attention to those parks that seemed to offer that “something special” that made them a cut above the rest.
In loving memory of my best friend, I decided to sit down and review our notes on exactly what would make the ultimate park; a place that I knew Jane would consider perfect in every way. After much research and countless memories of the parks we had visited together; the ideal park just seemed to drop from Heaven … and on August 11, 2006 I purchased “The Big Red Barn RV Park.”
A proverbial masterpiece, this park seemed to have everything! A beautiful country setting; abundance of wild life; peaceful, quiet and serene atmosphere; no freeway or train noise; and close to shopping with a wonderful selection of local restaurants. The beautiful nearby town of Carthage also had much to offer in the way of area attractions. Campers could visit the Civil War battleground where the Battle of Carthage took place, or spend the afternoon strolling the gardens at the Precious Moments museum. The list of area attractions is just too numerous to list here but have been provided for you on our web site.
Our team of friendly and knowledgeable staff are all eager to make your stay with us a memorable experience, and to show you why the Big Red Barn RV Park is second to none. Hot coffee and fresh baked muffins are in abundant supply, the only thing missing is you! Please plan on visiting us the next time you pass by this way; we’ll keep the welcome sign lit and hope to see you soon!
