Our Campground is located right across from the duck river!  Set up your campsite in a field near the road (for easy unloading of gear) or go part way back into the woods for a little more privacy. If you REALLY want to be alone you can hike 10 to 15 minutes down towards the creek and set up in a much more remote location where the local deer may be the only ones to visit you in the morning.  There are even some cows that come over to visit during the day. Duck River (now a lake) is just minutes away and has some great fishing and boating. There are hiking and mountain biking trails around the river. The side roads have nice views of the local farms and would also be a great place to bike. The town is about 10 minutes away and the city is 20 minutes away.  There is room for a couple of small tear-drop trailers and vans too. I can fit one or two RVs in also. . Come enjoy the FEST RAUM (get together room) with internet.  There is a full bathroom with hot shower too ! 

Here is a Review ,

Campground Review:

We really enjoyed  the weekend at Tomahawk Primitive Campground, a veteran owned, private campground, just outside Cullman, AL. As the name suggests, this is primitive camping, so no power or water at the sites, but nothing wrong with boondocking, right?!  There are 3 private sites that could handle tents, teardrops, small trailers, or vans, as well as an open field that could hold larger RVs or group camp with multiple tents and/or small trailers. There is also 3 tents sites just a short hike down to the creek at the back of the property where you can camp at your own waterfront site. Each style site is equipped with a fire ring.

The owner has one room in his house blocked off that includes facilities for guests to use and is called the Fest Room. The Fest Room includes a full bathroom with shower that was very clean, a couch and TV (which is a nice place to get out of the elements if the southern weather suddenly turns on you or to just catch an evening movie) , a coffee maker, and a large deck. The deck overlooks a portion of the property and turned out to be a great spot to meet up with other campers or the owner/host and share your camping stories. The deck also includes two gas grills that can be used with permission from the owner.

As mentioned above, the property includes a creek that runs along the property line that was nice to take in, whether sitting on a rock and dipping your feet in the cool water, or hanging a hammock and letting the afternoon slide by with the sounds of flowing water. Our dogs and the host dog, named Bear, loved playing together in the creek!

Wild blackberries were growing all around the property and are starting to get ripe. Picking a hand full of these was a nice addition to our camp breakfast.

We found good cell phone service with Verizon throughout the property.

There is a Dollar General and gas station/convenient store 5 minutes from the property if you need to get any supplies.

While we camped this weekend we also had the opportunity to check out a few of the local attractions. Goat Island Brewery is not too far from the campground and offers up award winning craft beer. We also visited the Ava Maria Grotto at the St. Bernard Abbey, which featured 125 miniature reproductions of some of the most famous religious structures in the world.  A short 25-minute drive south the campground takes you to Mulberry Fork where you can go hiking, tubing, and the site also hosts kayak slalom races in the spring.  5 minutes from the campground is Duck River Dam that has a boat launch and additional hiking trails.

At $15 a night, you can’t beat this to get away from it all for a weekend!  The host was very friendly (and the host dog too!) and was an expert outdoorsman who loves to pass on his survival knowledge. We will definitely be back.

Overall, site was very enjoyable. The host was very welcoming and hospitalable. Campsite was clean, well mowed with brand new fire rings. Great potential for a fantastic campsite. Would go again.

Perfect weekend get away!
My girlfriend and I had an amazing time camping here in a tent. It was convenient being able to park close and walk to the campsite, especially sinceI brought a big cooler and heavy backpack.
When you get to the house, simply drive down a little to the first entryway. Pull in and park anywhere considerate to the surrounding fire pits. There’s a path towards the back that you can take to access the other spots, and a trail leading down to the creek. The creek is very close. I suggest getting there with daylight so you aren’t confused where to go (like I did) Haha.

Notes:
Very friendly and generous host. There’s a Dollar General down the road. Clean bathroom with hot shower. Available guest bedroom if needed. Low cost.
If you want to have a big fire I suggest bringing some logs, because some of the natural wood was rotted. Other than that, you are all set.

Great experience, and I look forward to going again.

Brian is super friendly! He was very flexible with my late night arrival. Campers are allowed use of the home for showering and beverages, which is amazing. Highly recommend!

Had an awesome time at the camp ground. There were a variety of places to camp, you could pull your vehicle to a spot and set up or hike towards the creek and set up a spot away from everyone else. There were fire rings provided and it was pretty easy to find some fire wood. Brian even let us borrow his axe when we forgot ours.

He was a great host and was a great help when we had issues with our tent. Brian also good knowledge of the surrounding area and where some mountain bike paths were. He is extremely nice and smart and was a blast to talk to.

The bathroom was clean and well kept and the shower was clean with hot water. There was an oven, stove, and microwave that made cooking food easy since I stayed for 10 days.

Not sure what else to say but overall great host, great campsites, and I'm excited for his future plans and cant wait to come back

Was as advertised. Enjoyed secluded spot of our site. It stormed some so it was nice to know there where option such as the room and shower but we kept to ourselves. We met the host as heading out. He and his lab, Bear, were very nice. Will be returning.

We had a great time! Brian’s place is a nice little slice of wilderness just outside of Cullman. The shower and bathroom is nicely kept and there’s plenty of sites to choose from. Nice creek in the back as wel! His dog is sweet and friendly, too!
