25 plus acres with 1200ft pristine riverfront. Remote but accessible. Chose your site. Blaze a trail to the river, private beaches, tubing and swimming. 20 acres wooded and open field for a more remote experienced. Camp off your tailgate. You still have river access. RVs are welcome nice level easy access spots but no hook ups. Plenty of room for extra vehicles and trailers. Bring your horses!

Cozy Cabin at CampFire Riverbend
Aptly Named
The place is approximately named yet doesn't do it justice. Very peaceful and rejuvenating having the river flow close by the cabin. My favorite part was laying in the hammock looking up at the trees sway in the wind. Richard was a gracious host. Overall the stay was great.

The site is fairly secluded but not too hard to get to. The fire pit is nice and you have an excellent view of the river. The host is quick to respond to any questions and is very helpful.

Solo camping
I enjoyed my stay at Richard’s campsite by the river. The path in was easy to follow and the campsites were so clean and well designed. It was perfect for a 6x6’ tent. The view of the sunrise behind the river was breathtaking. Highly recommend.

Cozy Cabin at CampFire Riverbend
We loved being right on the water. The campsite was nice and spacious. We didn’t use the cabin to sleep in, we used it for storage and slept in our tents. The water had been way above its banks right before we arrived so we feel like it would have been an even better experience had that not been a factor! But we still really enjoyed it! Richard was very helpful and informative and we will very likely use him again!

Cozy Cabin at CampFire Riverbend
Very tiny & cute, exactly as described! If you come prepared with everything you need, you’ll do great. Waterfront with lots of land that our puppy loved running around on. Super sweet host who allowed us to rent his generator & provided firewood we could purchase. We had a blast and will definitely be booking this place again throughout the summer! :)

We stayed at the premium campsite. It had a good fishing spot right by the river where we caught bass, sun fish, and almost caught a pike! The site was equipped with a nice picnic table, fire pit, camp chair, propane can and metal grate for cooking over the fire. The outhouse is very nice and close to the premium campsite. We were able to relax in the woods and enjoy a weekend with friends. Firewood is easily available for purchase there at the campsite, cut and stacked by the host.

Happy camper
Campsite was amazing! Exactly as advertised. Very serene and pretty spot. Would highly recommend staying here to anyone and everyone. Overall great stay. You do hear the highway that is nearby. Otherwise, very quiet and secluded.

This was a great place off the grid to spend a night! The site was right on the river, the view was phenomenal. Perfect trees for hammocking and watching the river go by. I was the only one there for the night and it was so peaceful and quiet! If you don’t need many of the comforts associated with state campgrounds, this is a great option for a little more seclusion and quiet! I was able to back my teardrop camper into site 1 and it was perfect! 10/10 recommendation from me, I will definitely be going back!

This place is beautiful! Campsites right on the water. Our kids and dogs had a blast! Richard is an extremely nice host and stayed in touch but also out of our hair.

This spot is conveniently located for someone like me who is just passing through, but it was also the kind of campsite you could spend a couple of days relaxing at. It's a beautiful spot on the river. The campsites are nicely set up and have a fire ring and a picnic table (which to me are the two requirements for a real campsite). Richard was very responsive and helpful. Wish I'd been able to stay longer.

Beautiful spot on the Styx River
We had a wonderful stay on Richard's Riverbend Camp. The smell of the Cedar was so great and seems to keep the bugs away. It's super easy to get to, but feels like your miles away. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area. Directions were easy to follow and Richard is incredibly helpful. We can't wait for a return visit when we're able.

The spot is great. The camp sites are nicely arranged near the river behind the trees. Wood for the fire was ready for our arrival. The restrooms are a bit old fashion but comfortable. It would be perfect with a shower.

River side camping
What a perfect spot along the river to camp and enjoy your surroundings. Hosts Richard and Ryan were so accommodating, and went above and beyond to ensure we had a comfortable stay. Communication was stellar, for sure an up and coming destination. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you!

Nice spot by the river. Gracious hosts. A little noisy during the day with the gun range and the interstate but did quiet down for a peaceful night.

We enjoyed our stay, they communicated well with us and we had a spot right by the river, went for a nice cold swim in the morning and had a solid fire at night. Worth trying it out!

Nov camping
Extremely nice hosts. The river is clear and beautiful and there are 2 small beaches that you can lounge on. The campsites are far enough apart to be ultra private and it is a gated campground so it's also safe. There are trails to walk on and it is a gorgeous walk because of all of the cypress trees and other Alabama flora. It's really nice now and they are improving it every day. Nice place for sure

This is literally one of the most pristine, beautiful and peaceful campgrounds i have ever seen. It is just in uts early stages from what ive been told and i can't wait to come back and see the chanes. Richard is amazing. Sites are right on the river and and are primitive yet they are quite spacious. Well done! See you soon.

We were The host’s first guests and knew the camp ground was a work in progress. For us, that was perfect. We enjoyed the entire campsite to ourselves. Our host was pleasant and responsive.
