Voted Bluff Countrys Best Campground six years running, we have over 170 uniquely tiered sites, offering relaxing, scenic views close to many onsite activities and nearby local recreation in a practically mosquito-free setting!
Some say there’s nothing better than sitting by a campfire talking to friends or being lulled to sleep by whippoorwills, crickets, frogs and coyotes. The Old Barn Resort has earned a reputation since 1990 for being a great place to camp and experience nature with family and friends. Whether you just want to relax in a lawn chair sipping your favorite refreshing beverage or enjoy some active recreation, The Old Barn has a LOT to offer in a practically mosquito-free environment! You won’t believe us until you experience it for yourself, but go ahead and bring your bug spray…you’ll have plenty left to take back home with you when you go camping somewhere else! That is, if you ever want to go camping anywhere else again!
