We have more established sites with fire rings, or you can find a place off the beaten path for more privacy, if you choose. The riverside is perfect for hammock camping, too. We love music and often host bands on the weekends. We rent kayaks and canoes on site, as well. We have a little of something for everyone!

Had a great time thanks!!!!!
Really enjoyed our stay here!!!! Definitely will be coming back... Owner is super friendly and great to deal with!!! Restrooms are clean and neat campground is as well!!! Nice place to stay as well as beautiful scenery.... Kayaking on the river was a great time... Plenty of room for our truck camper and gear... Highly recommend staying here!!!!
Late arrival was smooth, bathroom facility was decent. However, the host started playing music at 11pm and it went until 7am. Literally the worst hours for noise. No such thing as quiet hours, not due to other campers, but the host area.
Great place to stay
A quaint campground just off I75. Jes was very friendly. The place was clean and had a very nice shower available for use as well as an outdoor water hose. There are four clean half bathrooms with flushing toilets and small sinks. I took two dogs with me. They have a dog that lives there Im ashamed to say I can't remember his name braxton I think.....he was incredibly friendly. There is a little kitty too! Nice clean environment. They have fire wood available as well. Great place to stay! Would definitely stay there again!
Convenient, peaceful and beautiful
We've stayed here 3 times now, twice this summer, as a stop over between our family in the Midwest and our home in the Southeast. It's so convenient, right off 75, and is a beautiful property. We've never stayed when a festival is happening, and have always found it quiet and peaceful. The host stays out of your way but is easy to access if needed. The amenities are simple, but clean and functional and one of the better of places we've stayed. We love staying here and is quickly becoming our overnight favorite.
Couldn’t have been better.
We were let down after a drive up from TX to buy some land but this place saved our trip. We were the only primitive campers so it was extra peaceful. Clean place, new campsite by the river. The few times people came by they were respectful of noise. I’d definitely pick a spot further from there on a busy time to lesson foot traffic by. The host was kind and easy to check in with when we arrived around 5-7p, welcomed us and let us know where to set up. Besides seeing them you wouldn’t have thought we were at a site because since we followed rules and were respectful we were left to enjoy our stay. Will come back if we are ever in the area again. Hidden gem down a back road 💚
Ps loved the dog host as well, he kept trying to take our young big boys on a tour around haha
