Privacy!  Scenery! And the extraordinary Cadron Creek!  Due to requests to totally "get away from it all" we again welcome guests to come enjoy our  campground perched on the bluffs overlookiing Cadron Creek with nary another soul in sight.   There are several campsites on the property but no more than 2-3 reservations are offered at any time -- in fact, we usually limit it to one single party.  It is that special!!  And  jaw-dropping beautiful!  Sparky, the stone mason who quarried, cut and stacked every rock on every trail within the campground, has created a wondrous place to come camp and explore.  We are now restoring Sparky's original homestead -- the one room cabin (soon to be our new "romantic retreat"), outdoor kitchen and shower,  a two-hole traditional Swedish utedass–or privy, and a chicken house.  As to where to sleep ... well you may lay your head anywhere -- under the stars, atop a pinnacle, out in a field or sheltered in the woods by the river.  

The famed Cadron Boy slept in a rock crevice hidden from view for months before he was discovered.  Most people camp in 1) Sparky's Garden -- it is easily accessible, level, soft, and open to the stars yet the rock walls and banisters provide for a homey, safe feeling.   An obvious favorite and the most popular spot.  However, one of our favorite spots is atop 2) Deer Stand Rock which is literally perched atop a rock pinnacle -- great views but a long fall, be careful; this is NOT a place for "sleepwalkers".  USE CAUTION.  You can also camp atop the bluff just up the hill from Deer Stand (and closer to your car) and still have some great sunset views. As for privacy then we suggest 3) Piney Hideaway  -- a campsite hidden from view in the stand of a large grove of pine trees west of Sparky's cabin.  Trails from Sparky's Cabin lead in all directions. 

The best trail -- the one to the creek -- descends over 100 feet to the creek that breaks out into view as you edge your way along the bluff only to find yourself descending a set of steps through a crack in the rocks.  The trails from the campsites offer access to hiking, swimming, fishing and paddling.  We'll be offering more info and pictures soon but wanted to get this posted if anyone wants a place far removed from everyone else for the Labor Day Holiday weekend.
