Pitch your tent on a riverfront landing or wooded area. 

4WD down to campsite area. 

WITHOUT 4wd you may hike in and out though there is a steep incline. Friday through Sunday there is a truck available to get you and your gear to and from the campsite.

You may enjoy playing in the river or creek, kayaking and/or canoeing the river and walking through the wetlands. We have kayaks, canoes and paddleboards available with pick up and return to camp. It's a nice 3-6 hour trip depending on the length of your stay on the sandbars. Although kayaks and canoes come free with the campsite, donations are accepted for the beautification of the hipcamp.

IF you would like to guarantee privacy during your stay, you may book at least 2 sites, contact me to let me know and I will close the other 2 sites for the duration of your stay.

Alright, let me just start with best camping trip yet! So aside from the campsite being in an actual wilderness (based on it being directly on the shoal river) the host was extremely responsive and helpful! We felt safe, could text for additional good water, but also felt secluded.

we used a 4 person canoe and spent the day on the water it was really spectacular. The night sounds were beautiful, there was plenty of natural wood to gather and forest to explore. we will definitely go back!
oh yea, you Do need 4 wheel drive to drive down to the spot, the host contacted ME after booking to ask what I drove - when i mentioned I did not drive 4 wheel she immediately offered to transport our gear to site and made herself available at arrival!

Shady, hard-to-reach campsite

Host was very welcoming and helpful, however the campsite is located at the bottom of a very steep hill which requires 4-wheel drive. We did not have that, and we also had a small trailer, so we had to leave our car and trailer at the top of the hill and lug our gear back up to the car the next morning. It is a long haul. Luckily, Kelley was kind enough to shuttle our stuff down in her truck and then lent a small wagon for the trek back up.

The campsite is also listed as having a shower, which it does not.

Another thing to be aware of is that Kelley's neighbor has an alleged history of friends who come and steal and vandalize her stuff. This is something I would have liked to know before booking the campsite, as we had thousands of dollars of gear in our car and trailer, which we parked right in front of her neighbors property.

Ian, I appreciate your review although I wish you would have done your research about my hipcamp and would have noticed it said you had to have 4wd to get to the site. I'm sorry y'all chose to park in the farthest possible parking area, you could have parked at least 1000 feet closer. However, It was no problem for me to go out of my way to accommodate getting you and your fellow campers and gear to the site. When you asked if you could check in earlier I quickly accommodated you, yet you came at the original check in time. Also, as stated on my listing there is a shower, it just happens to be cold water. Thanks or the review so that others will know to closely research each hipcamp site for accomodations and requirements.

Great spot and a great host! We will be back for sure. Watch out down by the river though if you’re like me you’ll slip and fall in
