Campsites were well spaced out, so we had plenty of privacy. Loved the views!

Nice, no frills campsite. I didn’t use the shower because it was raining when I left, but it’s a nice option to have. Ground is tough, so be aware of that when hammering stakes in. I didn’t have any problems making it up the hill, but I have AWD and I could see how others would have trouble. Overall, would stay again

Michael was a great host and the property was beautiful. We stayed two nights with 5 adults and 4 little kids. Plenty of space to run around and enjoy the woods.

This place is the way life should be..simple, yet panoramic and without expectation. No hurry or hustle; just nature at its best. This also describes the host and his son.... genuine souls who are sharing their paradise.
Am honored to take part.

Michael’s camp ground was so peaceful and well kept! It was a quick 20 minute drive outside of Nashville but still felt secluded but safe. It was so quite and the view was absolutely stunning! Pets are welcomed which was a plus for those of us who had dogs. They loved being able to free run and play. Michael did a phenomenal job at accommodating us at the campsite by bringing extra fire wood and even allowing me to use an electrical outlet to blow my air mattress up. We are already planning our next trip to bring more friends to check out this sweet camping spot! 10/10 recommend staying with Michael.
