We have a new road to the campsite; you can now drive down with two-wheel drive vehicle or small RV down and park near your tent! 

There is plenty of soft sand to set up one tent or ten tents; large groups are welcome for an extra fee.  A Porta-Potty is available at the campsite.  Swimming is usually possible at the base of the falls; however, large amounts of rain can change conditions and make it unusable.

I should also add, this is not a completely private campsite deep in the woods. The camp is visible from a shared driveway, and my residence is up a hill that overlooks the area.  Also, I do not own the land on the other side of the stream.  Occasionally, the owners of that land will spend a weekend afternoon enjoying the waterfall view also.  Still much quieter and more private than a regular campground.

Glamping tents and additional camping tents are available through a local company. Look in the pictures for the tent with red, white, and blue balloons. Message me for details.

Close to US National Whitewater Center (mountain biking, whitewater rafting, kayaking), Kings Mountain National Military Park (Horseback riding and history), Crowders Mountain (Hiking), 3 miles off of I-85 and US-321 for people passing through.

The setting couldn't be better. Scott greeted us with a smile - very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were clean. My wife & I walked up on the rocks and sat for an hour, taking it all in, listening to the water. Nice to hear the water while we lay in the tent at the end of the evening.

From beginning to end, this was a most excellent adventure. 5 star hospitality, 5 star location, quiet, scenic, peaceful, and most of all, private.
We used a 21 ft camper & tow vehicle with plenty of room to spare.
Scott was a wonderful host & we look forward to returning asap.

We had a great stay at the camp. Scott is a fantastic host. My buddy and I brought our 3 year olds for their first camping trip and the location was perfect. The kids loved playing in the water and climbing the rocks. The swings were also a huge hit. I would definitely recommend this spot.

This location was absolutely perfect for our family of 4! Our kids (11 and 7) could safely navigate the waterfall and explore the immediate area, while my husband and I sat with feet in water and drinks in hand. It was peaceful and felt so secluded even though we knew Scott was just up the hill. Scott was a wonderful host- helpful and friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of the area. Our family enjoyed feeding his goats and meeting his dog.
There were garbage and recycling bins on site as well as 2 porta potties which had just been cleaned and were ready for us to use. We were able to tie up our hammock as there were a few trees that were close enough together. The swings by the campfire are a nice touch, too!
We had a wonderful time and we will return!

We have nothing but GREAT things to say. First- Scott was fantastic, he’s such a nice guy and very accommodating. We were incredibly last minute with the generator and he had no problem making it happen when we arrived. We felt very welcomed and at home.
Second- The falls, Holy moly- they are an absolute blast! My husband and I went down them several times just on our bottoms, it was so much fun- I would definitely recommend a tube though, you will be able to start further and get better speed. We also had a blast just walking up and down looking at all the different rocks and listening to all the different water sounds.
Camping was great- there is no power and it gets pretty dark- there is a street light, but it’s not bright enough to light up the camping area- would recommend a good lantern. Big perk is Sleeping with the sound of the water.. it was soooo relaxing.
This will definitely Not the last time we will stay here- we are going to make this a yearly (of not multiple) trip.
We were only able to stay for 2 days and that was not enough, we were so sad to leave. So WORTH our 10.5 hour drive. Thank you Scott for sharing this gem with people.
