    To start this review off with a big bonus- he has a pool!
    This will be a great spot once it gets completed. The spot for the tent is rocky, just needs to be cleared out or filled in with soft dirt.
    We chose to sleep in the Airstream. To be fair, he did tell us it wasn’t ready, but at least it had AC. He’s in the process of fixing it up. The air conditioner is extremely loud & rickety, none of us slept very well because of the noise. It did keep us all cool though. We also slept on our own air mattresses instead of the 2 small mattresses provided.
    Once he gets the Airstream fixed up, it’ll be great. And if you want to camp, be prepared for a rocky ground, or ask him ahead of time if it’s been cleaned up at all.

    Thanks for the honest review. I'm glad the pool was a good amenity, it's been HOT up here! I plan to get the tent areas cleaned up, there are a few more primitive spots further down past the pool but I need to get some logs cleaned up and out of the way. Its a little more private down there and accessible with Jeep. I chose to put more time into getting the Airstream ready for yall to camp in instead, and we should have given it a test camp and fixed the vibrations from the AC.

    Justin was an awesome host! He was quick to respond, gave very accurate information, went out of his way to call me to make sure we settled in fine and even gave us use of his pool and air stream (which was very refreshing after a hot day to cool off). It was easy to find, though it does not show up accurately on maps (satellite won’t give you an accurate view). The actual lot is a few houses before where GPS wants to drop you off.

    Anyone who has stayed at several Hipcamp locations knows you always get something different. This is not a very primitive site, at any given time you can see the house. The camping spot designated for tents was small and rocky, so plan on having a smaller tent (<8 man) and moving some rock out of the way. You would set up right by the pool. There are few place to go where (as a girl) squatting is a bit out in the open when you need to relieve yourself.

    Since Justin just got the airstream prior to us coming, it’s hard to review as it is a work in progress. He graciously let us stay in it but informed us it was “under construction.” It will definitely be a gem once fixed up.

    If you’re looking to stay a week, it might be hard to stay here simply due to privacy, but for a one or two nighter like we planned it worked well. Most campsites in Hot Springs are first come, and this was a guaranteed spot. I look forward to coming back in a year and seeing what has been done to Justin’s little Hipcamp.

    Thanks for sharing your honest thoughts, your perspectives will help us prepare for our future hipcampers. We had some trees that needed cleaned up in order to get down to the more primitive camping area further down past the pool. I rushed to get the airstream ready instead of clearing up access to the more private camping spots. Will get those areas in better shape for future campers. Thanks again for your expert advice, shoot me a message if you have any other suggestions!
