Super nice host. I have already re-booked. Campsite is primitive, but spacious. No power or water at the site, but the host offered to let me use his water at the house if I needed it. Feels safe. The site is in a subdivision, and is a short drive away from food and grocery stores, as well as the University of Alabama. One thing to note is that the site is at a lower elevation than the road, so pack lightly to minimize the trips back up the hill. Awesome customer service!

It’s a beautiful spot, and the host pays a lot of attention to it. It’s what might be called semi-remote, because it’s completely tucked away and private, but at the same time, the residential neighborhood is just over the rise on both sides. The frogs and whatnot are quite exuberant at night—which is delightful—but you still hear the odd pickup with undersized mufflers or a few trains. So this is a great spot for someone who likes the reassurance that civilization is not too far away. We slept very well.

This location was awesome. Secluded enough to have privacy, but close enough for easy access. We had a great time, the set up was awesome. Definitely will be back!

We spent one night at Nathan’s property and couldn’t have been more happy with the experience! It was a great, secluded spot that was the perfect place to set up camp, and Nathan was very nice and helpful! As others have mentioned, you have to go down a steep-ish hill to arrive at the spot but Nathan has lined the path with solar lights to aid in any after dark navigating. The spot itself was well kept with a fire pit, hammocks, and a trashcan. Though by a shallow creek, the mosquitos were not a problem! If you’re in the area, definitely check out Nathan’s spot!

It was an exceptional little treasure of a location! Very peaceful and private for the most part. The host was very hospitable and so helpful with any needs! I had a blast with my kids! A little difficult of a hike down to the site but aside from that, it was perfect!!! We built a little tepee and rock sculptures in the creek! We had a blast!

Host was very responsive and nice. However, at the campsite it is not easy to find a spot flat enough for a 4-6 person tent. There were a lot of mosquitoes, as the site is right next to what I would call a small bayou. It was not easy to walk down to the spot from where you park.

Nathan was a great host. Very responsive and friendly. The site was nice, but the walk down was more like a hike. A bit dangerous at night if you don't have a light - especially if raining (slippery). Definitely recommend guests get to this site early to set up - setting up in the dark is a challenge with a big hill to climb for your belongings. The creek noises were nice to hear while sleeping, but you'll also hear the occasional car and train. Overall, great host and good site once set up.

Nathan was such a thoughtful and accomodating host. The spot was absolutely beautiful and had many helpful touches. Hammocks, a small table and chairs, and some collected fallen branches were welcomed additions. The walk down is fairly verticle, but short. Overall an incredible find!
