Abrams Creek Campground and Retreat brings you as close as possible to pristine nature. Tent sites are generously sized, spaced well apart, shaded, and on soft natural earth. Cabins are secluded and set into the forest.

You are never far from our wild, whitewater stream. In some places, it is a constant source of energy and playfulness; in other places, it is peaceful and calming, inviting you to soak in its beauty.

Camping at Abrams Creek is more like camping in a nature preserve, than in a commercial campground.  On our campground, there are no generators, loud electronics, or other things that would distract from appreciating the sights and sounds of this pristine natural environment. 

  We have portapotties, and a shower room at the main lodge with hot and cold water.  All sanitary facilities are *sterilized* between guests; we have taken every measure to safeguard your health! 

 Campsites and cabins are well spaced out, so that there is never a feeling of crowding.   Many are riverside sites; you can choose between wild whitewater, rushing river, and wider calmer areas. All campsites are soft, level, shaded forest floor with a picnic table, fire ring, and block-and-board bench. We sell charcoal, charcoal lighter, propane, fire starter, and firewood, if you need any of these, all at very competitive prices.  In particular, please do not bring your own firewood.  This can spread many tree diseases that can harm our beautiful forests!

 Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash when outside your tent. Most other pets are not allowed; please call if you have specific questions.   

 We also rent charcoal grills and propane stoves.  The campground has 20 acres of hemlock forest bordered by a wild whitewater stream.  Some areas are boulders, pools, and turbulent water—great to watch or play in.  One large area towards the end of the campground is a calm wading area good for children (with careful supervision of course), and just past that is a deeper section, 5’-7’ deep, that is good for swimming.    

There is not WiFi on the campground, but there is WiFi in the vicinity of the main lodge house.  There is also a phone you can use on the lodge porch, with free calls to anywhere in the US, in case your cell phone does not have reception. When you arrive, please come to the main lodge to register--just bear to the left as you enter the grounds.    

You are welcome on the grounds anytime that day, but your campsite will not be available until 3 pm.  If you will be arriving after 8 pm, please call when you are on your way so we know about what time to expect you. . Check-out time is 1 pm  on your last day with us.  

We offer a variety of accommodations to suit every taste: for those who like roughing it, we have tent sites, and rustic cabins with or without electricity.  For those who would like sheets, blankets, and towels provided and full cooking facilities, we have a six-bedroom guest house, and a 2-bedroom retreat cottage with full kitchen, bath, washer/dryer, and more. We also have a conventional motel 3 miles from the campground.

We got a campsite near the creek and it was amazing being able to hear the water all day. The portapotty are a bit old but has a hand wash station right next to it. By the end it started to stink a bit but they are far enough from campsites to not be a problem. Potable water onsite. Host was very nice and recommended our beautiful site. It’s all covered with trees and although there was a bit of people we didn’t hear anything. It’s a great place to just relax.

Stream side site in a beautiful area. Mostly empty when we were there so nice and quiet. Nice swimming in the creek at a couple of places. Great place to kick back and relax.

We had a great time at Abram's Creek. Our hosts, Sarah and Michael, accommodated us in two close tent sites that gave us plenty of room for 10 people. We enjoyed the sound of water as white noise, the spacious fireplace, hot water for washing dishes, beautiful nature, and much more. The only downside was that the nearest portapotty, where at least four other tent sites use it as well, was close to being full. There are things that can be improved to make this place even better.

First of all we camped during memorial weekend- however the port - a - John situation was inadequate for the amount of people in the woods. By the time we left the poop was to the brim.
The area is very pretty but if the number of sites were reduced- site selection would be better.
Hosts were friendly and accommodating

Our stay at Abrams Creek was an unforgettable experience. Check in was super smooth and the owners were so sweet and cared about the environment! Our site was right on the creek and very private! I could go on and on about how great this property is, the vibes were immaculate. My dogs also enjoyed the creek! I recommend this retreat to anyone looking for a relaxing off grid camping experience! Thank you for the wonderful stay Abrams Creek owners and staff!
