This was a great campsite! Super shaded and right on the river. The access road definitely needs AWD or 4WD, we did just fine in a Rav4 and Crosstrek. Matt was great!

From the time of booking to the time we checked out, Matt was AMAZING!

Matt met us upon our arrival and gave us a tour of the acres upon acres of beauty. Though we reserved a primitive campsite on the river, he shared with us his plans and envision of his property, hosting many like us, including yurts!

The site we booked was beautiful on the river. We slept so well with the sounds of the river in the background. We fished the Tuckaseegee river and even caught trout with sweet corn (Matt’s suggestion). Matt checked on us our second evening and invited us to view his lands most beautiful sunset.

I absolutely recommend this site! Despite the rain we encountered, it was worth every inch! 😊

We had no internet connection on our phones but we were able to makes calls and receive texts.

Matt’s riverfront camping space is beautiful, peaceful, and definitely private. About 3/4 of the space is shaded and I camped in the more open 1/4 part. The drive down the mountain and back up is a little tough, but my Subaru made it (with some difficulty, but it had been raining). The entire site is river frontage and the river is easy to access at multiple places (no steep hills or rocks to navigate). The site is down about 25 steps from where you’ll park, but they are not too steep and are wide and easy to negotiate.
Matt met me at the entrance and was very helpful, accommodating, and friendly - he showed me a few hiking trails and a spot up the mountain where I could have had watched the sunset. Thanks Matt!

Primitive and remote site on Tuck river bank. We had three medium to large tents, three brothers and kids, and three cars and had the room we needed, but at capacity for the site to give you an idea of the space. You camp right on the banks of the river under a canopy of trees so nice and shady. You park a stair case above the camp site. Space for a fire ring is right on the water, but you’ll likely want to bring some firewood. Trout fishing, wadding, and tubing in the river were all fun activities. Host was attentive and ensured visit was going well. One cell bar for those wondering. Overall, nice spot on a beautiful river bank spent with family.

We stayed on the river and it was a slice of paradise! We floated in the river, fished, and tubed a short run on the land. It was completely private and Matt was attentive and made sure we didn’t need anything. We’l be back!
