On top of arkansas
We enjoyed two nights on top of High Point. We are big fans of camps with a view, and this was breathtaking. The best view we got during our visit to Hot Springs, AR.
Mike reached out to us directly during our travels in and arranged a time to meet. He met us with some treats and led us to the site, gave us the history of it, and was such a kind, welcoming soul. Could have talked to him for hours.
With storms rolling in, night one was windy. While initially setting up tent on the platform, we moved to a lower spot behind a car, but yet on the mountain. We could have slept up top, but it was difficult to "stake" down the tent. We read in reviews, others set up at the lower pond during windier conditions. We felt safe and protected atop High Point, while not on the platform.
Night two was absolute bliss. While the sunset was awesome night one, night two, with the calmness, provided a peaceful and serene setting to enjoy nature while contemplating all of life.
There were 4 "luggable loos" on site. We also filled up our water with the "elixir of the Gods" at Happy Hollow in town to enjoy during our stay. It was a short 25-30 minutes into Hot Springs which we felt close enough, but a good retreat given the views.
On our way out, in saying thanks to Mike, he showed us the kunekune pigs. We continued to learn more history of the property from Mike and enjoyed the time with him.
As we told Mike in departing, "we have a group of friends we'd love to bring back."
This place and the hosts are simply incredible. Great view, comfortable set up, secluded location, and the hospitality was fantastic. I have been telling anybody who will listen to me that they need to come stay here.
This site is really unique and special. Private, and the view is just spectacular. I wish we'd had more time to explore the land, but we were only there a night. Host Susan and her dad Mike were excellent and super helpful. Mike had great suggestions for places to check out in Hot Springs as well. Highly recommend it!
We have an absolutely wonderful night and wished we could have stayed longer. Such a private and peaceful place. Mr. Erwin was so lovely, hospitable, and informative. We’re already talking about when we can come back!
