95 acres on the beautiful Topisaw Creek. Here we've raised 5 kids and a multitude of dogs, cats and chickens and a small herd of pineywoods cattle. The woods are quiet and undisturbed , harboring native species like jack in the pulpit, trillium and Florida anise. The spring-fed (and thus always refreshing!) Topisaw Creek forms the eastern border of our property, so plan to spend time on the sandy beaches and rock bars soaking up the sun or hunting for rocks and fossils (petrified wood and arrowheads have been found here). Many folks also enjoy a leisurely float down the creek in inner tubes ('tubing') or in a kayak. (Please note that after heavy rains the creek rises to epic heights and is too dangerous to navigate.) Little to no light pollution makes for amazing stargazing!

Creekside camping
2nd time back to David’s land. This time me and some buddies picked the creekside campsite. It was great being able to drive right up to the site and having the outhouse right there too. This would be a great spot for summertime and will try to make it back for another trip then.

This was a perfect little getaway from New Orleans. David showed us to the site when we got there and we were left alone to explore the sand bar and creek. It was a great calming spot that would be a nice swimming spot in hotter temps. There was everything we could need. We will def be back!

Great time!
I enjoyed my time at Camp Topisaw! David was very responsive and delivered the firewood right to my campsite (site #2). The site setup was great with a fire ring and grilling grate. Having an outhouse nearby was awesome. From site #2, I made a short hike down to check out the creek. Overall, it was a great trip and host/land. I’ll be back!

Sooo nice..
We loved our time on David and Edie's land. It was very private and beautiful and everything we were hoping for. Scar (one of the dogs that lives on the land) was so sweet and spent almost the whole time with us. Davis showed us his greenhouse full of succulents that were so interesting! We'll definitely stay here again in the future. :)

Camp Topisaw Duck Pond Overlook
Camp Topisaw was a relaxing experience. We stayed at the Duck pond overlook and there was plenty of room for out two hammocks and one 8 man tent. I brought my dog and he totally enjoyed walking around and meeting the donkeys and cows.

Wonderful camping Experience
We enjoyed every moment of this camping trip. David greeted us upon arrival and so did Scar and Luna. My dog had the best time swimming in the creek and playing with the other dogs. My husband isn’t a big fan of camping and loves it there. We have told all of our friends and family about this and we will all definitely be back.

david, edie and mel are amazing. this has been my favorite spot to camp with my dogs for a couple of years, but after this visit i cannot recommend them more or sing higher praises. after a serious car issue and getting stranded with my two dogs, they were all so kind and generous. their hospitality was above and beyond, and despite my dilemma, they made sure the dogs and i were comfortable and taken care of. thank y’all so much for everything!

A pleasant peaceful experience.
We weren't there long, but we absolutely enjoyed our stay. We especially appreciated the company (one of the pups spent the night at our campsite. Additionally, we took a little hike down to the sandbar and loved the misty sunrise.

Perfect camping!
We just stayed a night a site three and it was wonderful! I took my wife, three kids and our dog. We all had a wonderful time! It was quiet, never heard a car or anything. The creek and the woods are beautiful! We had a great time walking the trails and along the creek. David and Edie are so gracious to open their land for people to use! It is very easy to get to me we can’t wait to go back. I highly recommend camping at David and Edie’s!

1st time but not the last
Very easy to get to and David’s directions made it simple to find my site. A short walk down the trail and I was at my destination. Nestled under a canopy of trees with the creek off to the side, I couldn’t have asked for a better spot. The property is well maintained and a perfect place to relax. I will definitely be back.

The best!
My experience at Camp Topisaw was amazing to say the least. The campsite was not only open but secluded enough where I felt very much on my own. They blew past my every expectation I had. I have plans to go back in the coming months and I can not wait! 100/10.

Me and my family loved camping at camp topisaw! My kids said it was their favorite camping spot so far, and we have been camping at a lot of places! We stayed at the duck pond overlook.

Wow! I don't even know where to begin. Camp Topisaw is the rare kind of place that just blows your expectations out of the water. All of the conveniences were lovely (tables, chairs, umbrella, grill, grassy tent-area, close parking) but the real kicker was the seclusion and cleanliness of the site. After so many disappointing camping trips to state parks covered in litter, Camp Topisaw was paradise. As all the over reviews mention, the dogs were also a huge highlight! Scar is an angel and a rotating cast of other equally sweet and well-behaved pups came by to say hello throughout our trip. David was an incredible host with informative and friendly communication leading up to our arrival and made us feel comfortable right away. I'm going to daydream of this place until I can make it back! Thanks again!

Tent camping 4
We absolutely loved the privacy of the camp site and the beach. Every area that we explored is very clean and almost looks untouched by people, very nice experience for nature loves. We will definitely book again. Our dog enjoyed herself and the companion ship of the camp dog, Scar. The firewood was awesome to have available on site & the wheel barrel helped tremendously, brilliant idea to have for camp use.

Great pitstop for campers on the 55
David and Edie were super accommodating and provided the perfect spot to set up our rooftop tent for a quick rest before hitting the road to New Orleans. Definitely a great location for a quick pitstop if you find yourself driving down the 55!

Labor Day weekend getaway
Our stay at Camp Topisaw was nothing short of peaceful & enjoyable. Site 3 was clean, private, and spacious with a short walk to the creek. Water shoes are a must, as the hosts recommend. We were accompanied by one of the camp dogs the entire trip. She was super sweet and well behaved. She also made us feel extra safe and protected at night. We ventured out of our site to explore the others and were quite impressed by what David & Edie have created out there. We had the best trip, rain and all.
