Get away from it all.
Great get away from everything. Nice little river full of fish and friendly turtles. Awesome huge live oak tree to camp under and great place to walk around. Alana was awesome making sure we had everything we needed. One of our favorite spots, will be back again and again. They now even have an out house.

This was a nice relaxing place to camp and I didn't see a single mosquito the entire time we were there! With that being said, we basically won the $2B Powerball. Plus there's a nice BBQ place not far from it. The Live Oak tree at the camp site looks to be about 240 years old, which is amazing. Also, there is a very old and interesting cemetery on the way to the property, if you're into that sort of thing. We ordered three bundles of wood, and they were all there, neatly stacked at the camp site waiting for us. That was really nice. On a side note, the rocks used to make the fire pit are amazing. I don't know what they are, but they sure do look cool.

Absolutely loved my time at Skull Tree! Just a short jont down to the creek where my dog and I hiked along the trail. Keep an eye out for ticks! Alana was so sweet and made sure I wouldn’t have any trouble with getting my fire going since there had been some rain early on Friday and the forecast has projected spotty showers throughout the weekend. I would definitely go back!

Great site! very secluded, was perfect size for 3 people and 3 tents, but could probably hold more comfortably. The trees that make up the canopy are amazing! Would recommend a high clearance vehicle although we were fine with low clearance 2wd in dry weather.

DEAD END CREEK IS SUPER COOL!!
Camping at Dead End Creek is AMAZING! If you want seclusion you got it! it is SUPER PEACEFUL and serene! The creek is great to cool off in and the views are just amazing here. There are PLENTY of places to explore and a nice area to set up your tent along with a place to make a fire and a seating area!

Would rate this place 20/10 loved every bit of it from the armadillos in the distance making noise to the mystery laughing off in the distance to collecting wood and next time I come I would bring a skull to add to the tree

I loved the tree canopy with limbs hanging all the way down. The camp was super clean and the area was too. Having the whole place to ourselves was also amazing plus we explored the whole area...going back down memory lane and took a ride on the seesaw. Next time we book will be when it's a bit warmer for sure. Thanks again for the chill stay. Be back real soon

Alana was very responsive prior to our stay. The property is nice and the description of the property was concise and accurate. We had a quiet and relaxing stay, and particularly enjoyed seeing all the cows on the way out in the morning.

Campfire, full moon, coyote howls
Excellent site, excellent host! Love visiting this place. We had nearly a full moon last night that was beautiful in the clear sky. To top it off, a couple of the coyote packs were howling in the distance. Didn't see turkeys this trip, but did see deer and lots of birds. Thank you, Alana!

Awesome stay
Went out on a cold and rainy day. Where i was supposed to stay didn't accommodate my camping so i messaged Alana and asked if anyone was staying at the other camp site. She said no and i could swap sites with no problems. I got to see some deer, turkeys and got to hear the coyotes howling at nite. It was a super clean and well set up site. Alana was so quick to respond to my messages and so accommodating. I will plan to stay here again in the future.

Great Camping Spot
Great remote spot to get away from it all. The picnic table, firepit, and grill were all nice additions. I wish I would have brought a fishing pole as there were plenty of fish in the near by creek. Great spot overall!

Amazing camping!
Our stay was absolutely great scenery,wildlife,secluded,star gazing occasionally hear the cows,coyotes howls. Fire pit was great and we made it a thing for people to find wood while we walked the property throughout the day and spend sometime at the creek. Host was very help for every question we had & More!

Lovely stay at DEC. Very private and secluded, but easy to find and good directions from Alana. It was nice being so close to the creek, and we caught a couple of small catfish and a tiny perch. There are patches of sticker burrs, so bring full coverage footwear. The campsite itself is perfect, plenty of space, shade, and a great size fire pit. Would stay again!
