Pitch your tent right on banks of the White River! The Swimming Hole is a small campground with just six primitive sites that share twelve acres of White River Frontage. Wading and swimming here is good year-round. Kayaking and canoeing only in the springtime generally. Floating here from the town of Patrick is picturesque. This property has 2 historical home sites. The homes are gone but antique daffodils, pop-ups and other perrenial plantings still remain. White Rock overlook and trail nearby. Terra Studios is about 10 minutes away. Mulberry Mountain Venue and Mulberry River is about 30 minutes drive south on the scenic Pig Trail - Highway 23. Property has about 350 feet of River Frontage with 5 sites directly on the river and 1 site on a spring nearby. Use the written directions. This Campground is on Hwy 16 about 22 miles South East of Fayetteville in Madison County.
Sites: Sites 1 and 2 are small river front sites with one shared fire ring. Sites 3, 4 and 5 all have more area for children to run around. Site 6 is the only one that is not right on the river, It is however, next to a big wet weather spring that makes a roaring waterfall sound during wet weather. Site 6 is the most private site. Sites 4 and 5 are the nicest sites at this point with the best river frontage. Site 5 has the easiest river access. Other sites will likely use the site 5 river access.
Site Capacities: Site 6 is ideal for just 1 or 2 tents Sites 3, 4 and 5 can hold 2 to 3 tents each. Sites one 1 and 2 are ideal for just 2 adults and just one small tent. Site 2 is a very small site.
*** site 3 currently has a brush pile in the middle of it. You can still reserve it and camp there though if you wish.
** Owner lives in the next county. Reservations less than 7 days out during the growing season may find the grass to be higher. Owner mows it at least once per month during the growing season.
