The Fort Bluff Camp Site was an absolutely fantastic experience overall, and I can't recommend the location or the host highly enough. Sandra went above and beyond to make sure that we found the location, gave us some history on the bluff, and then left us to enjoy our weekend.

The campsite has phenomenal views in almost all directions. There are plenty of flat spots for tents and trees for hammocks. Be mindful that their are no facilities on-site, but that was not an issue for my group. If needed, there are stores and gas stations within 15 minutes drive.

Our group decided to visit the nearby wildlife preserve as well, so this campsite is really in a fun location.

Overall, cannot recommend this location enough, and will be coming back next time I have the chance.

The site is beautiful with amazing views all around. Definitely make sure to have a good 4WD vehicle if you want to pull right up to the campsite, as there are some fairly large mudholes on the way up. The owner was very nice and handled any issues we had perfectly. If you want a place to get away and camp without people around, and with beautiful views, this is a great spot.

Really enjoyed our stay at 180 Degrees of Heaven. The views are spectacular and the bluff is a fairly ideal place to camp! We put up hammocks but there is also plenty of flat ground for tents. Plenty of firewood lying around on the ground in the form of logs, and the rocks on the bluff were a perfect place for a fire. The only thing I would advise is that you must either have 4-wheel drive or a willingness to hike in in order to get to the bluff point! Even our 4wd Pickup temporarily got stuck in one deep wet spot on the road in, but there was an alternate way in/out around it which we took the next time and just had to go slow to navigate around some trees. We will likely be back for more adventures.
