HarvestHosts is a site that contains nearly 1000-member host locations, where RV’s camp for free, generally for an overnight stay. We first joined a few years ago but never had an occasion to use it. Since then, the number of hosts has grown and there is now an app that allows you to find sites quickly. It contains information including limitations and what you can expect. Most are dry camping locations. There is no charge to stay, but the guidelines of the project encourage the campers to visit the hosts and purchase some products. This is not required but appreciated.
We stopped at the Northfield Vineyards in Sparta, TN. It is in a rural area and was once an active farm. We spent time talking to the owner and purchased some wine and very good local cheese.We enjoyed a quiet evening overlooking the farm fields and watching the neighbors watch us. We took the warning sign concerning the mules seriously.
