Coming back
I loved camping at Robert’s site, definitely coming back when it’s warmer to that beautiful blue water and big rope swing. He was very kind and offered fire would to us and was clear and nice with directions. However, the main attraction in my eyes, were the stars!! So beautiful and plentiful, bring a telescope to get a closer look!

Beautiful Fall Foilage!
Robert was very responsive. We drove out to look at his property, which is secluded and beautiful! Unfortunately, due to family reasons, we were not able to stay.

Highly Recommend.
This is one of the best hipcamps I have ever stayed at. There was nobody around. We had the whole place to ourselves and complete silence. We had our own swimming hole and rope swings and camped out right by the river. Rob had a fire pit and table available. Quick access to the road when we wanted to go watch the sunset, but this can be seen somewhat from the property as well. Check in process was easy. There is little to no cell service, but that helped us disconnect. The town of Stickleyville is soooo cute! People riding down the road of horses and weathered houses with character. The population is only 326 people and it feels very cozy. We stayed here before hiking Devil’s Bathtub in the morning, since you have to get there early to avoid crowds and it’s only about 35 minutes away. Would highly recommend.

Peaceful mountain campsite!
Rob’s land was a perfect place to stop for the night while on our road trip. Waking up to walk our dogs by the river and make coffee made for a great morning. Rob and his friends made sure we had everything we needed and were super hospitable.

Peaceful campsite!
Robert’s campsite was great! It was right next to a stream to hear while you sleep which was very peaceful. We forgot our firewood and they were very helpful by providing us with some! Definitely recommend this campsite to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway!

A short drive off of 23, Robert’s place provided me with the solitude, scenery, and space I was hoping to find on my trip to Asheville. He was there to see me to my spot, and allowed me to pick after showing me the land, getting me some fire wood and sharing stories about the property. This spot is the reason this app exists. I have 0 qualms in recommending it to anyone in the area and will definitely be back.

Best campsite!!!
Best campsite I've gone to! Private and recluse while surrounded by a mountain. River right next to site to go swimming. Robert was so helpful in providing wood when it got cold. Very peaceful and relaxing. Highly recommended. Will definitely come back and tell friends.
