Yurt Island
If you are looking to disconnect for a few days and just get outdoors, this is an awesome place to do it. The yurt is in a pretty private location on the land, but you can mountain bike on trails and an actual dirt track with some moguls, or play disc golf which could take you just about all day if you wanted it to because the course is huge with plenty of opportunities to practice your long throws and obstacle aversion. There is a bathroom with shower at the clubhouse which is a short walk with some solar lights to lead the way, and you can pretty easily avoid seeing humans if you want to be alone or if you’re the chatty type, the people you come across are all super nice. Don’t plan to door dash, but there’s a good Mexican place about 20 minutes away or apparently a good Chinese place right down the road. We chose to eat out the first night because it was raining and we didn’t get the fire going before the wood got wet. Also, take a few minutes in town to stop by the UFO Welcome Center if you like coming across wacky places in your travels! Not often do we go back to the same place twice, but have already talked about bringing the kids next time.

Great get away! Alan was real chill about things. I was hoping for a stress free night and got that. Nice scenery in a pine grove. Great time out there with my 11 year old son.

PEACEFUL BEAUTIFUL PERFECT CAMPING
Highly recommend to anyone looking for a safe and peaceful camping experience! I needed to clear my head and decided to stop here on the way to hike some waterfalls and didn’t want to deal with the typical high traffic popular campsites but didn’t want to go back country for safety reasons - this was PERFECT! I stayed in Cabin 3 as I had my hound dog with me and that is the pet friendly cabin. This property is GREAT for adventure pups! The entire property is majestic and well kept. Tons to explore on site, a couple creeks and ponds, the scenery is amazing. Picking my own firewood was one of my favorite parts! I’ve camped a lot of hipcamps and they usually have it pre ready but this pine forest was plentiful in providing! The host is extremely efficient and communication was always on point. Grateful for this gem!

We loved the rustic cabin and property! Everything was well kept and in a tucked away beautiful location. The cabin had a relaxing home feeling which was perfect for our short getaway. I would definitely book again with Alan!

Great way to ease into camping!
We took my husband camping here this weekend for his first camping experience and it was a great way to ease him into it without scaring him with our tent- lol! It was chilly out and having the cabin helped keep us a bit warmer (though it was still cold). It was simple but worked for what we needed. I loved the flood light outside so it didn't get so dark. Plenty of fallen wood to use for the fire too. The bathroom was a little hike to get to but was pretty nice and well maintained. My biggest gripe was with the air mattresses on the beds- I understand the ease of use and easier to keep them clean- but the queen one on my bunk was maybe halfway inflated. When I asked about getting a pump I was just told to "blow in the hole without putting my mouth on it" which seemed like a joke tbh haha. The man with the pump wouldn't be back until later on. It would have been nice if someone came out at any point to check and see if we had resolved the issue but we never saw a soul. So maybe bring your own battery operated pump just in case! There's also a fair amount of road noise, especially at night, and we could hear some shouting and carrying on from what I assume we're neighboring homes. All that said, I'd still stay here again. It was an overall pleasant camping experience!

The cabin was just right and the location is perfect, quiet and in the pine woods. The fire pit, charcoal grill and little Cookstown were all waiting g to be used. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to take advantage of them. Definitely hope to.go back for a longer stay. Alan was very helpful!

We had a wonderful stay, the yurt was comfortable and had all the amenities for cooking over the fire. The best part was definitely the outdoor water tubs, which you could lounge in during the evening, while looking up at the moon.

Beautiful space. It was extremely hot the weekend we booked and he messaged us to upgrade us to the yurt for no additional charge because it has better airflow. Very communicative and helpful

Highly recommend
We had such a fun time at SOAC! The Yurt was amazing and had all the creature comforts we needed, but still felt like camping. My kids loved having a snack bar close by, and we all enjoyed the walking trails and fishing ponds. Our host Alan was very accommodating and friendly. We will definitely stay again!

If you want a quiet getaway definitely recommend it. The only problem we had was that the bathroom was a walk besides that bring bug spray and enjoy this beautiful location and home.

Another amazing Hipcamp experience. Allen was friendly to work with and gave great directions and advice. The yurt is well appointed with seating, grills, even a coffee pot as well as bug spray, tongs, and more! The soaking tubs were awesome!

Great Privacy
SOAC is well maintained and spacious. We stayed in our camper and enjoyed the privacy we had at our site. Even though there were a few other campers on the property, we never crossed paths with them. The showers and bathrooms are clean, which is always a plus. This is a good spot for those looking for a nice, quiet, and inexpensive place to unwind!

Little Sanctuary
We had such a great time on Alan’s land. It was easy to find & we had the whole place to ourselves. Plenty of room to walk & play, the cabin was cute + accommodating and the lack of light pollution made the view of the stars at night absolutely beautiful. Will definitely be back to escape!

Great getaway from busy life
As always, great camping experience on this property. This was our 2nd time staying here. We plan to return around fall. This is our getaway from our busy life and the city. You can definitely connect with nature here. The cabin was simple. Nothing crazy but it has all you need. A bed and a couch. Alan does a great job communicating. Definitely recommend this location.

Great Yurt, property not expected
The Yurt itself was very comfortable, but was surprised to find how the “campground” leaves much to be desired. There is a single bathhouse that took us awhile to find. There were signs, but not super obvious. The campgrounds are better described as personal property that you are allowed to camp on. If you want to camp at an underused activity camp, just know that is the expectation instead of a campground.

Great property - amazing large fields to play in. there is a full disk golf course throughout the property - so just be aware that you will see people playing - especially from the RV sites which feel as if they are in the middle of the course. There is some road noise - but we got to hear a lot of owls at night. Bring bug spray! All in all an awesome place to spend a few nights.

YURT ISLAND IS THE BEST!
Alan's Yurt was everything we we're expecting and much, much more! Not only was the Yurt itself beautiful, but the surrounding area of SOAC was equally beautiful and so awesome to just walk around and explore. Even despite a few teams walking through the area playing disc golf, our trip was perfectly peaceful. Alan was a wonderful host and left us so many awesome supplies including bug spray, firewood and plenty of tools to use to cook, extra blankets inside the Yurt, and detailed directions and a map of the SOAC area. He was especially awesome as we traveled in, much later than expected, and was able to give us turn-by-turn directions to the campsite in the pitch-dark (thank you again, Alan)! If you're looking for a low-key, beautiful nature experience, look no further than Yurt Island! We're looking forward to coming back soon! Note: The day time in the sun is nice, but the nights can get very chilly. If you're extra warm sleepers like us, be sure to bring PLENTY of extra blankets and pillows for the Yurt!

Family spring break trip
We enjoyed the exploring the beautiful property. It was so quiet and peaceful during our stay. Our boys enjoyed exploring with their bikes. We had a fire every morning and night to cook food. The bathrooms were sufficient and an easy, short walk from our cabins. Cabin #2 has mattresses that were pretty comfortable. We wore ourselves out kayaking so we slept well. Thank you!

Yurt Sweet Yurt
My family and I enjoyed our trip to Yurt Island SO much. Alan is very hospitable and his property is gorgeous. His manager came out to check on us (the weather dropped and it was pretty cold) to make sure we were alright. My kids had a blast running around in the woods and helping build the fire. They didn’t want to leave. The yurt was cozy and had all of the creature comforts for me and my husband. There were no other campers or events at the time, a few people coming in to enjoy some frisbee golf. The privacy was amazing. The bathrooms were a short walk and convenient to have so close. We stayed 2 nights and took a day trip to Congaree National Park and honestly wish we had more time at yurt island. We would 100% come back and spend more time relaxing around the property. There are other camp sites around with tiny homes, would be great for a group of families/friends to get together and book them for some glamping fun. Thank you SOAC for everything!
