Booked last minute and Katie was very accomodating! Trail to private access to the river was amazing especially with kids. River was only about 2 feet deep and rocky, but we had a private sandy shore and we all loved the adventure and cool water. Site was rustic but within 10 minutes of a store. Right off the road which hubby liked. 10 minutes to Bullards Bar reservoir.

We are active campers and travelers and would rate Katie’s place as one of the nicest, best located, and real value of all the places we have stayed. The site was very clean, beautiful and had everything we needed to feel at a strong connection with nature. We had the best time ever dipping our toes in the water and enjoying the relaxing sounds of the river. Communication was great too. We would highly recommend Moonshine Adventure Co. campsite! Simply gorgeous!

Thank you for the review and coming to the site. We hope you bring your darling family back soon! It was a real "treat" to hear how much your family enjoyed the site, water, polywogs and s'mores by the fire. Come again soon.

We spent 3 nights at this camp and everything was great. The area designated for camping is pretty big and the portable potty was very clean. We loved the path to the sandy beach and the one inside the creek to walk through it.
The creek had cool and super clear water and it’s not depth. There is a nice chest depth hole for swimming right after the rapids.
There was nobody else at the creek and it was super relaxing.

Just what our family needed... The campsite was right off the small road (which didn't seem to be heavily traveled) and had a large pad for parking, the campfire, our six person tent, and a large screen tent for our kitchen. And there was still PLENTY of room. This site would accommodate a larger party and/or multiple families. There was a nice port potty, which was well lit, and came in handy for the kids. Then, there is just a short walk down the path to the private river access. Truly... the river was shallow, approximately 2 feet, and had calm areas and one faster moving area. It was clear that there had been work invested to make a gravel pathway (under the shallow water) out to "rock island".
We lived in the river, during our stay. With this in mind, I would encourage others to bring picnic food for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner and eat right on the river. The campground/river were filled with minnow, crayfish, tadpoles/pollywogs, deer, lizards, and more. The kids had a blast learning about nature and playing. We heard the river and the frogs at night while in our tent. So amazing.
Honestly, it was hard to pull the kids away from this site... and amazing to see how fortunate we were to have our own private river area. As we were driving home, we could see the public areas of the river packed with people.
This place is definitely a little slice of paradise... and the host was very communicative, thoughtful, and helpful. Thank you, Katie! We look forward to coming back.

Our tent looks so tiny here... plenty of flat space which is shaded in the morning and the evening. Sitting up our kitchen/play area for the kids.A view of "rock island"... with shallow pools, warm water, and a wonderful place to sit and relax.The view looking up the river, while standing in the river.

Thank you Amy for such a thoughtful response. We are so happy you enjoyed your time and we hope you book with us again. You are correct - we spent HOURS - making the path from the beach to "Dog Island." It makes such a difference walking with arms full of chairs, books and lunch. Thanks again for your wonderful and thorough review!
