My wife and I just got back from Deer Springs. I have to echo everything said here about this hidden gem! We stayed for 3 nights in site #7, The Holly Tree. It's a pull through, sitting on a small rise overlooking the park. Fantastic spot! The Gazebo has a huge gated deck where you can let your pet off the leash and relax. The ice maker fridge and mood lighting are just cherries on top! The park is so quiet my wife and I were stunned. Being from the Atlanta area traffic noise is as constant as a beating heart. Here we could hear our heart beat!

The hosts Jim and Trish are friendly and responsive. They're both energetic outgoing people that are genuinely interested in you enjoying your stay. It's hard work doing what they are doing and my hat is off to them. Just really nice folks.

A few of notes of caution, which are prominently stated on their website; There are no washing machines, shower or toilet facilities. No cell phone reception, it's in the mountains after all! Very limited internet service, though in truth I was able to access my email the entire time we were there. In the absence of these things are full hookups, including sewer, at every site (there are only 8!) with the aforementioned gazebo and ice making fridge etc. Also included is a fire ring with free firewood. Idyllic walks by a natural mountain spring bubbling away, porch swings in a mountain meadow (not kidding), and plentiful places to walk the pets. We didn't see everything but we are already booked and returning soon to continue our exploration.

Do yourself a favor and check it out. If you are looking for a clean, quiet, beautiful and friendly place to park it for a few days and get away, this is it.

You sure do, I missed that one! This is fantastic. Now if I could just get everyone here at the same time we could have an RV Forums Meet!

Thank you, NWIP. :)
Having watched the progress of your endeavor from its inception and the great work you and your wife have accomplished, we are looking forward to seeing the fruits of your labor. Pictures are great but seeing it will be better.?

Hey Jim...your very first are booked for our first return visit. We'll be seeing y'all over Labor Day weekend. Looking forward to building a fire!
Hi Buddy! It will be great to see you and Jeanette again. I guess this means she's not holding that horrible bottle of Red against me? :)

It was great to see Buddy and Jeanette again, and of course, their beautiful Mountain Aire. The three of them spent 4 days in site #8. Trish and I got invited up for a beer around the campfire. Some good times! :)

Hurry back Buddy and Jeanette!

So check this out!

We got to meet Steve and Lisa, members of RVForums, when they stayed in site #5 for a few days. Very nice people and driving a beautiful 2019 Dutch Star.

Thanks for coming by guys and we hope to see you again real soon!

Bill and Lisa (NWIP) made it by with their beautiful Dutch Star! (I'll let them tell you what the NWIP stands for, lol. :)) They also made an appearance on the "under construction" Three Pines Pavilion. :) Very nice couple with LEO sons who are doing their part to take care of us all during some very trying times.

Flying into Deer Springs at tree top level and hovering over the park. At 2:00 into the flight you can see site #7 nestled up under the large Black Walnut tree. Then ascending to the 400’ and a turn to the left, you can briefly see the "under construction" pavilion in the middle of the screen. Continuing the turn and we can see site 8 and then parting shot of the driveways in/out. Lots of pretty Autumn colors. Filmed with Autel Evo 2 Pro.

The youtube should play in 4K but you'll probably have to go to "Settings" -> "Quality" and select the highest value available.

Nice! Looks like you get a lot of trailers. What do you think the mix has been so far?

Hi RKins. I would say 5th Wheels are the most popular so far, with Class A,B,C following second, and TT taking third spot. I was surprised at how popular the fivers are.

Tim and Ginny were working all the finer restaurants in Franklin, Marc and Jennifer were hunting property, and Chuck and Linda were hiking the Appalachian Trail and riding their BMW Bike.

Getting this group together was like herding cats, but I finally got them to pose for a photo shoot. From left to right, Ginny and Tim, Marc and Jennifer, in the back Chuck and Linda, and then Trish and I on the far right.

Thanks Neal! Without RV Forums we probably would never have gotten together! All awesome people with interesting backgrounds, and one thing in common. . . having fun in their Newmar motor homes!

That's a motley-looking crew of Newmar owners invading your place, especially those two in the front, Marc and Jennifer. They are some of our favorite Hoots, but skipped this year...now we know why!
