Impressions:

1) Loretta Lynn Ranch is a very well maintained facility.  The love and care are evident everywhere you look from the RV sites themselves to the country store and laundry/bathroom facilities.  At least during early spring you get to pick your site when you check in.  Beware that the RV park was built in the 1970s when RVs were not as big.  Therefore, the roads are narrow with tight turns and the site we choose was easy to get into, but a challenge to figure out how to get out.

Campgrounds

2) The staff are very friendly with campfires Friday and Saturday evenings which included bingo and trivia.  They also supplied snacks, including smores, and Loretta Lynn trivia while you play.  Very enjoyable time after dark.  The country store was only open for the weekend in April where they played Loretta Lynn music during the day.  We could hear it in the background at our site.

3) While we did not take any of the tours, we did spend one afternoon exploring the shops and grist museum in Hurricane Mills on the property.
