Barns at RV Parks

November 27, 2016

I’m working on a little book called The Barn Project, featuring paintings and drawings of many of the old barns we’ve spotted in our travels and explorations. In the course of gathering the images together, I came upon these three that were on or next to RV parks. I suspect many of you RV travelers have seen some as well.


Singing Hills RV Park is located outside of Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky. This barn is on the RV park property, sitting beside one of the driveways leading between the entrance and the RV sites. The doors were never open when we were there, but I suspect that’s where the park maintenance equipment was kept.


Berry Springs RV Park is located north of Georgetown, Texas. We spent a couple of months at Berry Springs during two different winters while visiting with grown kids who live in the Austin area. This barn is actually on adjacent property. I stood under a huge spreading oak tree and painted this en plein air.


Rustic Knolls Campground is on Keys Road, outside the corporate limits of Mount Vernon, Ohio. It’s a family resort place with a section devoted to long-term summer sites and some short-term sites for transients. With a game room, a swimming lake, playground and fishing pond, it’s a popular weekend and holiday spot for locals. We’ve spent considerable time there while visiting Nell’s family. I painted the barn on location up by the fishing pond.
