Awesome location for launching your own kayak or you may borrow my rowboat (small deposit).
Yes! a small sailboat would be great here most days.

Safe and nice yet private
What a lovely place to stay with some very thoughtful and attentive people. Melody greeted us so well and made us feel very warm. The stay was out back on the property but secluded enough to be private, yet very safe. We even got to see their energetic pups in the morning!! Such a fun night.
Melody’s spot is so relaxing! We took two of her kayaks on the water with our dogs and had so much fun. It is a short row to the Bay River and close drive to the cute town of Oriental. The campsite is well taken care of, and the stars were beautiful. Will stay again some time. Thank you Melody!
Don’t try to cancel !
I texted melody to ask if I could cancel my primitive camp site because it was going to rain Friday night. Melody told me “it doesn’t work that way” I offered to let her keep half of the money because I only had a tent and no other options to keep dry. Melodies reply was “I can’t control the weather” and because she allows last minute reservations she doesn’t allow for refunds for a cancelled reservation. I told Melody to keep my money as I didn’t feel very welcome at her place. I would never stay somewhere where I would be expected to spend the night in bad weather, I was able to cancel a reservation recently for the same reason in a national park and I received a full refund. I mistakenly selected the box stating I would recommend this place to another person. I wound NOT recommend this place to anyone. Why wound you subject yourself to the unforgiving attitude and rules Melody has in place when there are options that allow for less restrictive and more welcoming places to camp.
Peaceful. beautiful. quiet. lovely.
Mel’s place is just lovely! We got what we were looking for - a beautiful, peaceful place to camp with more privacy than the average campgrounds. Melody is also lovely, what a great host! She was helpful and kind; never intrusive.
It’s well manicured, the chickens were great :)) I loved hearing the whippoorwill’s calls after sundown. We were surprised by a deer coming through our campsite Saturday night while enjoying the fire!
I highly recommend!
We really enjoyed our stay. Lots of camping spots to choose from. They have a row boat and 2 kayaks available to use. They have a chicken farm, so the dogs do have to be tied up during the times when the chickens are out. The family is very friendly and really helpful! We definitely will be going back and recommend to others!
