We have 6 acres of rolling hills and nature trails. A water hose and 30 amp RV extension cord run to the campsite from an unoccupied house that we use for storage.  The driveway is a little steep, but easily manageable for cars, passenger vans, pop ups, and small travel trailers of 19ft or less. 

There is a fire ring, picnic table, and a park style charcoal grill for your use. You may hear a distant rooster crow, quacking ducks, or a few cattle on neighboring properties, but they are far enough away that they are unlikely to disturb you. We hope you will enjoy your stay here.

Notes: 1) The 19ft max travel trailer length is to allow sufficient clearance to turn corners. If you have any doubt at all whether we can accommodate your rig, please send a private message before making a booking request.

2) There are foxes, coyotes, owls, and other wildlife that might bark, chirp, buzz, sing, hoot, hunt, fight, and howl during the night. While the wildlife tends to avoid contact with humans, you may consider bringing some type of white noise if you are not accustomed to hearing these sounds.

The campsite was nice and had a nice view. It was the perfect size for our small (14 ft.) teardrop camper. The driveway is steep (and gravel) but it wasn't a problem. There is a house right beside the campsite but it doesn't appear to be lived in, so the site is private and hidden by trees from the road. We really enjoyed our stay and the host was very responsive to any questions we had!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay on this property. It was easy to find and spacious, great for yoga, star-watching, bird watching and frisbee throwing.

We wish we could have stayed longer! Wonderful friendly hosts who came out and made sure we felt welcomed and had all that we needed, and shared some libations and some great conversation - this makes all the difference. The hill up was a little steep for our f150+trailer but we made it fine without 4 wheel drive. Camping site was level with all the amenities advertised. Make sure you download directions if on tmobile - very little signal in the area.

Clifton’s place is great and he’s such a cool host. If you’re in the area or just looking for some quiet (nature/animals excluded) I would definitely recommend it!

We were so glad that Clifton shared his property with us! He was very helpful when we arrived and showed us around. He was also very helpful with directions and an all-around great host. The property is lovely and we enjoyed exploring after we arrived. Pepper was the sweetest dog! Our son is still talking about her.
Do pay attention to the RV size limit. We were well within limits, but the people who were there before us were not and had some issues.

It is a wonderful place! Everyone can find something to do! The property by it self is huge! They have chicken ! It is so quiet ( no cars noise) ! You can do a hiking in the area! There’s a shooting range , golf course, Barnsley resort near by! You can find horse riding! We would really recommend this place! Besides it can be used when you traveling between the states because it is not that far from the interstate 75 !

Thank you so much !

Stray dogs fighting/barking

Impossible to find without calling for specific instructions as none are given at time of reservation. Host was immediately responsive. Did have to leave area to get cell signal.
Site was just fine, although barking/ fighting dogs kept waking us up throughout the night. This would be the only reason we would not come back.

Response from Clifton, the Host, on March 29th, 2021

I never received a call for directions. I retrieved the following from my message history, which was the only interaction I had with Alisa. No other phone calls or messages were exchanged. “Thank you for booking with us. Jennifer and I will be in and out all weekend, and may not see you. The campsite is accessed by a separate driveway at (address) Kingston GA. There is pink flagging ribbon at the mailbox, and leading up to the site. You will see the campsite to the left as you come up the driveway. You will pass a small well house with a water hose for your use. Power comes from a vacant house that I use for storage. You will see an orange power cord on the porch, coming from under the door. There is also a 30A RV extension cord plugged into the side of the house.” Alisa M***** messaged you on Hipcamp: "Ok thank you so much for your hospitality! We don't have pets and are pretty quiet people!" As noted in our pet policy, we do have foxes and coyotes in the area. While they tend to keep their distance from humans, some barking and howling can occasionally be expected. We also have owls that may disturb campers who are not accustomed to the sounds of nature.
