Lakeside Retreats was the most amazing campsite I have ever been to- tucked away only 20 min outside of Raleigh. Tom was incredible to work with - we had a large group and he was more than accommodating. The bathrooms were clean and the pathways were well marked. Easy to get around the lake and we had so much fun jumping on the boats and paddling around. Go hiking next door at the TLC trails! An amazing getaway- we will be back!

The Yurts were so cute and comfortable. Loved the little kitchens and the beds were super comfortable. Glamping at it's finest.

Amazing place. My kids and I loved it. This is the best yurt to get if you have kids. It's got 2 queen beds on the Bunk beds. The kids loved it on the top one and we stayed on the bottom one. If you want to camp out back, there's a large plot of land in the back of this yurt where you can add a tent.

When you get to Lakeside Retreats, you won't believe that you are at the edge of Raleigh... You'll think it's not possible to reach such peaceful place without hours of driving, but it is! My wife loves the outdoors, but isn't exactly into roughing it, so we found the Yurt and facilities to be perfect; allowing us to enjoy nature to the fullest without forgoing basic comforts. The lake is great for leisurely kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, or you can use one of the row boats that are provided. Nature trails abound, and access to the neighboring Williamson Preserve is certainly one of the best features of the property. However you are never more than a few minutes from civilization, so you can run into town for food and drink at any time, and after you've worn yourself out, it's a short drive home.

First time taking this beauty out!Getting all of my toys ready for a great weekend

It warmed up nicely which was great, because we unfortunately got a weekend full of rain.

We had an amazing time at Walnut Hill! The space was perfect for our family of 10.. Everything was clean and the yurts were very spacious. The beds and the couches were so comfortable too. Lots of fish in the lake and we even caught enough for dinner.
