Belle and Beau Acres

17 sites · RVs, Tents33 acres · Baxter, TN
Whether you're looking for peace, relaxation, or riverside adventure, Belle and Beau Acres hits the mark for any nature enthusiast. Location, location! BBA has taken the guess work out of rustic camping. Consistently ranked as a Best of Tennessee Hipcamp and situated in a convenient spot for Upper Cumberland waterfalls, hiking, kayaking, lake life and more. A short list of what to expect on site includes: PRIVACY - ADVENTURE - GETAWAY Quick response time/last minute requests accepted Spacious, shady, leaf-bed campsites 360 degree views of relaxing nature 27 Foot Waterfall (365 days of flow) Rock shelter under Ledge Waterfall Two shallow lazy rivers for soaking Hiking trails onsite Multiple spring-fed creeks Countless water cascades for exploring Star gazing over wide pastures Old forests for ample shade and hammock hanging Cellular reception at campsites (usually at least 1 bar) Please read the site descriptions carefully to match your style of camping with the appropriate campsite. BBA guests frequently camp with a tent, vehicle, smaller camper, hammock tent, roof top tent, pop-up camper and similar styles depending on their selection. Most of the photos in this listing are taken onsite. Please keep in mind this is primitive and wild Tennessee landscape that may also contain poisonous plants and wildlife in or around campsites. Access to fresh water fun is a short down-hill hike for all guests, with the exception of our hike-in campsites which are positioned alongside the river. Each spot has been strategically selected to provide as much privacy as possible, and comfortably accommodates groups with two vehicles. We provide a rock fire pit and heavy duty cast iron grill grate. You provide everything else, including drinking water and personal toilet waste bags if you plan to use our system. The hike-in sites come with extra seating. Children ages 5 and younger are welcome to camp for free. Everyone else must be added as additional guests on your reservation. Thank you! COMMUNITY COMFORT STATION: There is a comfort station with an outdoor shower stall for hanging your own solar shower bag. The comfort station also includes a changing room which doubles as a private place to use your portable camping toilet. A toilet seat and bucket system is provided but guests will need to use their own waste disposal bags, available at most camping supply stores. The backside of the comfort station has a rain barrel (not potable) collection system for extinguishing fires. OFF-ROAD CONDITIONS: Due to the primitive nature of our location, all reservations should expect hilly terrain and potential bumpy or soggy road access, especially after heavy rain. We ask all guests to help us minimize impacts by driving with care. We do not recommend vehicles with low ground clearance, but we do leave this decision up to our guests. An important note, 4wd has not been needed and guests always have the choice to park their vehicles at the entrance. We close road access December-March and guests are required to hike in from the entrance of the property, less than a mile distance total. Belle and Beau Acres is a private homestead with an organized, personal campground, conveniently located less than five minutes from I40. Expect nothing short of 360 degree views of relaxing nature, privacy, and spontaneous adventure when staying at BBA. Central to the most beautiful middle Tennessee destinations, this location provides the perfect home base for day excursions to several state parks and lakes. Conveniently located on the Eastern Highland Rim between Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga in the lower Appalachian mountains, this area sits at the Upper Cumberland Plateau and is part of Tennessee's largest micropolitan area of Cookeville. Visit popular nearby attractions such as Cummins Falls, Burgess Falls, Fancher Falls, Greeter Falls, Fall Creek Falls, Blue Hole, Rock Island, Center Hill Lake, Dale Hollow Lake, and Caney Fork River. The choices are endless! The Klein family purchased their home in 2015 after grieving the sudden loss of a beloved family member and realizing that life is truly too short. They traded their bustling city life for a more permanent connection to nature. This small family of four lives at the entrance of their 33 acre old ranch, hosting primitive camping and leaning into a homesteading lifestyle. It wasn't until the family started shaping the land for their personal use until they realized the abundant beauty that surrounds the home. Hidden away and inaccessible were gorgeous rocky cliffs, rivers and even a waterfall! Hipcamp has provided an avenue for them to carefully share this experience with others. On the land, they enjoy cooling off in the spring water, organic gardening, foraging for wild edibles, hiking, and exploring their onsite rivers and natural springs. Your host Christine is creative and loves working in her onsite fiber studio while her husband David is often found in his organic garden. Their son Elliott is a student at Tennessee Tech University and their daughter Freya is a student at Upperman High School. David, Elliott, and Freya enjoy playing music together professionally in their band My Heart Your Heart.

Swafford's Hollow

1 site · RV, Tent739 acres · Pikeville, TN
One of the first parcels in Bledsoe County, TN, Swafford's Hollow resembles almost 740 acres of untouched wilderness. Although the lakes aren't natural, the environmental gain and beauty is amazing. Swafford's Hollow was purchased in November of 2020 by two of the Swafford brothers, with a vision of restoring the property to a pre-colonial environment, allowing wildlife and the ecosystem to thrive. Swafford's hollow is nearly completely forested, has three man-made lakes, two natural streams, a natural pond, many natural wetland areas, and over 27 miles of trails. It is our vision to develop an oak savanna, and spot clear cuts to allow graze land and cover with proper upkeep to develop habitat for many native species that are scarce from loss of savannas.

Quarter Spring Farm

1 site · Lodging65 acres · Liberty, TN
Quarter Spring Farm is located in Liberty, TN on the western edge of the Cumberland Plateau. It comprises 63 acres of wooded ridges and hollows with exceptional hiking and distinct landscape features. Smith Fork Creek, which feeds Center Hill Lake, is visible from the campsite. Quarter Spring Farm’s history is murky and still being discovered. The house is over 100 years old. There are stone property walls that may predate the civil war. We believe this site was a Mississippian period settlement because of the large amount of artifacts we have found.

Breathtaking Waterfall & Campsite

11 sites · Tents35 acres · Jamestown, TN
Book by the end of March and get a Early Bird Discount! SLTABXED (10%) This hidden paradise has a waterfall that used to have a mill on it in the early 1900's. There are cliffs on each side of the creek making it the perfect spot for serene relaxation. Following upstream is an assortment of spots to pitch a tent. The most notable sites are surrounded by hemlock tree's and is peaceful when birds chirp over the small rapids echoing from the large overhang *I am in the process of making multiple sites but until I do so it is first come first serve. There are multiple sites at main campsite and along creek, I've had a private event of thirty people staying at once. There are also smaller spots next to waterfall, uphill near cliff and I've had people go below falls for some complete wilderness (blocked by gorge and waterfall). With this being said, I do offer private bookings and accommodate special events! *I travel for work, so I won't always be here, but I will send directions and details after confirmation and make sure all is savvy during. Please be respectful to one and another and let me know asap if any issues arise but truthfully everyone has been amazing and I thoroughly enjoy meeting and getting to know everyone! Thanks for your contribution in turning my dream into a reality!

Moonlight Ridge

4 sites · Lodging, Tents28 acres · Jamestown, TN
Private primitive campsite on North White Oak Creek. Bring your fishing poles and hiking boots! This site is right in the creek with a raised area to set up a tent and a lower area on the bank. There is a small fire ring with a tripod for cooking, a few cooking utensils, roasting sticks and three folding chairs for your use. Picnic table was available but was dept down stream a few months ago!!! Bathroom is a pop up shower tent with a bedside chair and bucket. I will provide disposable gel bags I just tried them sealed, placed in garbage bag and deposited in receptacle at the end of the trail upon check out. Dry firewood is available for purchase. There is plenty of small branches around for kindling. Do not cut down any live trees. Do not use firewood from the small cabin area. At night enjoy the sounds of passing coyotes and the watch the flashing lights of the of lightening bugs fluttering around. You may even get lucky and see glow worms and glowing mushrooms in the area certain times of the year. There is also an area where hundreds of hummingbirds abound! They will hover in front of your face as you pass by, this also depends on the season and when the flowers in the marsh are blooming. The old O&W Trail crosses my property. For those who are true explorers you can follow the trail East into Big South Fork. This part of the park is unmaintained so a lot of tree dodging and climbing small rock slides may be required. This section of the trail is rarely traveled so chances of seeing a human is slim and wildlife is great. Please stay on the trail until entering the park as it is private property on both sides of the trail. Swimming is at your own risk. There are branches under the water that cannot be seen but my girls swim there almost daily during the summer. You are free to wander the property just be aware of your surroundings. I do have snakes, spiders, ticks, mountain lion, coyotes, bobcat, wild hog, beaver, otters, mink and a momma bear with cubs in the area. Driving to the parking area for the campsite is a narrow, steep, rutted and can be muddy trail thru the woods. Before booking please know it is recommended to have a vehicle with clearance and 4 wheel drive. A mustang will NOT make it!!! I do have a 4x4 to transport if needed providing you pitch in for gas cause she does drink a lot, about $10 with each time she goes down there, or you are welcome to park at the top and hike down. I have a wagon to haul gear. Once at the parking area there is a short easy walk thru the woods to the campsite. Driving to the campsite is not possible. I try to keep it as natural as possible.
