OPENED IN AUG 2023, Country Life RV Parks offers 16 full service sites and 25 primitive sites. The park will add 10 partial service sites -- water and electric--by the end of the year for a total of 26 RV sites on level gravel pads with beautiful country views. We are located at 1204 Campground Rd in Clarkrange, Tennessee.
Our vision is to offer camping spots--nightly to yearly--for folks who would just like to experience country life. Our fields are surrounded by beautiful pastures and grazing cows. Eric and I are often amused every day by the 13 head of cows traipsing down to the water pond to cool off every day around 2pm. Although our pond, at the moment, is shrouded by tall trees, we plan to get busy on thinning them out in late November, after the famous Appalachian "changing of the leaves" season. By late next spring, we plan to have a pretty walkway around the pond, along with benches and adirondack chairs for your enjoyment.
Our RV sites are spacious and provide plenty of room for you and your family to relax and enjoy your stay. We offer 16 full service sites, 10 partial service sites (water & elec), and 25 primitive sites.
Entrance to the campground constitutes permission to Country Life RV Parks to photograph park visitors and use resulting pictures for promotional purposes without payment to visitors.
We have plenty of activities for the whole family, including hiking, fishing, touring award -winning state parks, or riding your side by side on one of Tennessee's off road trails. Or, visit Mennonite country. You'll never be bored during your stay at COUNTRY LIFE RV PARKS.

Clarkrange (our location) and Fentress County, in general, are largely rural. We have contacted every single internet carrier in our area and the only type of service possible is a satellite service. This is cost prohibited for a small park such as ours. Several of the major internet companies have Country Life RV Parks on their waiting list for service. Until then, we recommend purchasing a dedicated hotspot from your cell-phone carrier as a way to stream your favorite shows. We use our personal hotspot service to watch all of our favorite news channels, sports channels, and entertainment channels. We will have further information on this topic posted on our Website when we have answers.
A Word About Cancellations:
Cancellation policies are a “necessary evil” for RV Parks owing to the nature of the tourist industry and the recent trend in RV Park full-time living by retirees. Cancellations can cost park owners thousands of dollars in lost revenue. Last year, reports nation-wide showed that the demand for campsites was greater than availability. Thus, campers took to their computers to reserve camping spots well in advance (sometimes as far as a year) to make sure that they were able to find an open reservation. However, when a site is reserved, it “takes it off of the rental market” along with its anticipated income for the park owner/s. By the time a camper cancels the reservation (often only a few days before check-in), the opportunity to “re-sell” the cancelled site is all but gone, and with it, the anticipated income. This dynamic is why park owners must be diligent about structuring a cancellation policy that is fair for both parties—park owners and their guests. CANCELLATIONS FOR ANNUAL AND SEMI-ANNUAL reservations: Reservations must be cancelled 45 days prior to check-in for a full refund, minus a $150 cancellation fee. Cancellations less than 45 days will receive a 50% refund, less than 30 days, no refund. MONTHLY STAYS must be cancelled 30 days prior to check-in for a full refund, minus a $150 cancellation fee, cancellations less than two weeks will receive a 50% refund, cancellations less than 10 days, no refund. NIGHTLY STAYS must be cancelled at least 7 days in advance for a full refund (minus $25 cancellation fee), cancellations 3-6 days prior to check-in will receive a 50% refund, less than 72 hours, no refund. WEEKLY STAYS, must cancel at least two weeks prior to check-in for a full refund (minus $50 cancellation fee), Less than two weeks, you will receive a 50% refund, less than 10 days, no refund. Refunds should be processed within 5-7 business days. NEAR HOLIDAY CANCELLATIONS: If guest “stay” is within 3 days (before or after) a national holiday, entire reservation will be forfeited. No shows will not receive a refund.

At the present time, Country Life RV Parks does not offer laundry facilities. Plans to add laundry facilities are in place. Both Jamestown to the north on Hwy 127 and Crossville to the south on Hwy 127 offer large and modern laundromats. For convenience, campers may hang hand-washed or machine washed items on a fixed laundry rack attached to their RV’s ladder. We will have clotheslines available behind the small office building. Please use the park's clotheslines as laundered items cannot be “hung out” to dry outside of your RV except for items hung on fixed clothes arms at the back of your rig. We strive to offer an aesthetically pleasing country-life experience and appreciate the help of our campers and residents in maintaining the beauty of the park.
We do not accept mail or packages at the Park for liability reasons. Guests must have a P.O. Box for mail and deliveries must go to the Guest’s assigned site. Please do not go online and forward mail to Country Life RV Parks & Services, as we are a commercial address and your mail can never be unforwarded. The Clarkrange Post Office is just 2 miles from the park on State Rd. 62 and they are quite helpful and friendly.
You are always welcome to walk throughout the park, enjoy our small and restful park with a view of Lillypad, our 13’ “canned ham” vintage pull-behind travel trailer. She is occasionally rented for special events. We bought her in Indiana and brought her to Florida where we had a shop and home for renovation. We also have a 2000 Monaco La Palma 36’ A Class that is available to rent. She is also considered a vintage RV as she is now 22 years old. Her name is Miss Money Penny. We love our vintage cars and RVs as you will see. Have your picture made in front of our “toys” if you please. Our quiet time runs from 10 pm to 7am every day and observe the privacy of fellow guests and their campsite.
