The spot was beautiful!!! We had lots of fun! Perfect spot for feeling like you are in the middle of no where but still very safe and close to lots of activities. Our group went rock climbing and hiking! Definitely be where if driving to the spot, we had a truck and made it but any other car may get stuck.
Sandra was an awesome host accommodating a last minute booking while being highly communicative! Campsite was exactly as described! In regards to the road in, we drove a 2005 Toyota Camry so as long as it’s dry, I wouldn’t say you NEED a 4wd vehicle. If it’s muddy good tires and some ground clearance will be a necessity. Only downside to our experience was the litter people left along the paths, but I have a feeling this is a nice hangout for some of the local kids.
This is an awesomely beautiful spot, make sure to arrive early enough to lightweight backpack in to the site about a 15 minute hike from the road, if you didn’t bring a four wheeler that is, perfect for anyone in search of an incredible sunset view to end their day.
Nice view, privacy - close to home.
Great place to camp if you want a little privacy and nature closer to Huntsville. There is a nice panoramic view facing west, which makes for a nice sunset. It’s a bit darker than where we live in Huntsville, and the star gazing is decent. The place is a little difficult to access and a 4x4 with 8+ inches of ground clearance is recommended. Our little Subaru made it, but if it rained in the night I think we would have been stuck. All-in-all, it’s a place worth checking out, especially if you live in Huntsville and you don’t want to drive far for a weekend night out.
Worth the hike in.
We booked this place knowing full well our cars wouldn’t be able to reach the site. It was tough lugging all the gear in. The hike in to the site is a fairly difficult trail that’s a little shy of a mile long to bring. So, if you don’t have an off road vehicle be prepared to pack light or embrace a work out.
In any event, the site is beautiful and well worth it. Locals know about the site, but are just friendly kids, they left as soon as we arrived and were polite.
Not private but great views
This site has a lot of potential but there isn’t much being done to keep it private. It seems everyone in the area knows about this site and comes out whenever they feel like it. We were approached by two different groups of people while camping. If there was more to block off the roadway and make it known that the property is private, this could cut down on the visitors. As of right now, it’s essentially open to the public and is a hangout/hunting ground for teenagers.
Great view, difficult to get to
Loved the view but definitely difficult to get to. We struggled in our 4 wheel drive car to get through some mud spots and even eventually had to just park and walk the rest of the way which about .75 miles. If you are thinking about staying here, be prepared to really off road and even carry all your camping gear. No parking either at the base of off road.
