Despite Camp 3's Zone being hit by most of the wind without trees to block on New Year's freezing front, you can't beat the peaceful surroundings and the hosts care.
JUST MAKE SURE YOUR TENT IS SECURE. LOL

We absolutely loved our last minute camping plans at Sparrow Bend. We have never used Hipcamp but so happy we did. There were I believe only 4 camps sites and 2 Rv sites which made it very quiet. The river was beautiful and was a bonus! Angela and her husband were hands on and helpful with any questions. Angela even offered extra blankets if we needed that night as we went from 80 to 29 with high winds. We will definitely book campsite 4 because of the location and the live oak tree on site. It was worth a 2 hour drive for a one night of camping.

Great, I mean GREAT host! Super responsive.

Very nice spot, we will be back. Access to a restroom would be my only complaint.

Beautiful sunsets!

We had a great time. We were really thankful for the use of the bath house. The property is very nice, however it is small and not much to do there. I was under the impression we would have been able to do more hiking. Still we had a great trip and will definitely be back. Maybe in the summer so we can spend some time in the beautiful river.
