Long before Smokin’ Joe’s RV Parks came about, Smokin’ Joe’s Rib Ranch was the start of it all. Joe Wells decided that he wanted to try his hand at BBQ and developed some of the best tasting BBQ around. His son, Cobi and daughter-in-law Bobby Jo came along to help a couple of days a week. That is what you do when you have a family run business – everyone pitches in!
The business soon started to grow as word of the legendary BBQ made its way around the area and the state. The Wells family started at a full-service gas station and convenience store that they quickly outgrew thanks to the reputation of their delicious BBQ. Bobby Jo recalls that her first real menu was written on a lined sheet of paper and she had to guard over that because it was the only one they had! What started as part-time family helpers turned into full-time operators who have turned this restaurant into destination BBQ. Don’t be surprised to see long lines to get our delicious food.
The Wells family jumped on the chance to purchase 5 acres, which would become home to Smokin’ Joe’s RV camp and cabins. Joe’s philosophy is to give his best to folks, and they will never let him down. He knew people would enjoy a beautiful experience in one of the best RV resorts around.
We have plenty of RV spots for rent, and we have also installed fully furnished cabins for our guests. As things have grown, The Ranch House came to be with beautiful western wear and fashions that our customers enjoy. The Ranch House also carries mementos from our restaurant so that you can find t-shirts, hats, and other souvenirs.
Over ten years of business and one location grew to 3 locations. The response to our down-home hospitality quickly developed and we have been making improvements to our properties ever since. We like to talk to our guests and learn what you want as well as how we can improve our services. Everyone who stays with us is family, and we aim to deliver a total getaway that will have you figuring out when you can return!
