Blackwater Getaway Whole Site/Cabin
Great woodland hideaway The pictures and listing do not make it clear that the listing sits on the owner’s property. The hosts were great but I may have chosen differently knowing this. I double checked after my stay but this isn’t explicitly stated. The remote getaway aspect is dampened by that but otherwise great. Thank you

Blackwater Getaway RV Site#2
Stayed there 3 nights and had an amazing time! Campsite was right by the sandy river and the pavilion offered the perfect hang out spot! Hot shower and clean bathroom. The communal pavilion and two campsites are very close to each other but we were the only ones there at this time and had lots of privacy! Larry & Sheila were very communicative and nice. Would definitely come back

A great and unique campsite!
What a great spot, and even better hosts! We didn’t get a chance to meet Sheila, but Larry was there to greet us upon arrival, and checked in with us in the morning. Super friendly and hospitable! He shared knowledge about the property, the region, and some of the animals that inhabit the area. Very cool! We had the entire property/ site to ourselves for the night, and what a beautiful evening. Spent time in the field star-gazing, then sat by the fire for dinner. The sounds were alive at night and all around. Insects, dogs, coyotes, and who knows what else! Very pleasant though and nothing to be afraid of! Larry assured us of our safety when chatting in the morning. The river was very calming and we enjoyed breakfast on the “beach”. Larry shared that the tea-colored water (Blackwater!) is dyed by the roots of the Cypress trees, but is safe to play in as it’s tested annually. Was a bit too chilly for us, but maybe next time! We highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a unique camping experience. While we were set up for primitive camping, we did take advantage of the extremely clean bathroom, but not the shower which looked equally clean and inviting. Other great amenities like firewood for sale from their son, a pavilion, trading post, and water and power for RV hook-ups. Everything you need for a great camp! Thank you again Sheila and Larry!

Very enjoyable relaxing stay, we tent camped right on the sand by the creek. Very nice having the covered pavilion, seating and tables, bathroom and shower, sink and electricity! Very friendly and helpful hosts. Beautiful surroundings, our kids loved the creek and the pond full of tadpoles. Strongly recommend.

Peace and quiet by the river
Our stay at Sheila and Larry's land was great. We booked the hunters special site with our 20ft travel trailer which was nice with full hookups. The pavillion down by the river was really nice and we spent most of our time there relaxing by the water. Loved the bathroom and hot water shower and the availability of firewood with an honors box. It was very quiet there too, which was exactly what we needed for the weekend.

Perfect spot
This place was a perfect spot for a family to get out and spend time in nature without missing your essentials. Clean, safe and soooo pretty! The land owners came to meet us after arrival and were wonderful people to talk to. We already have plans to come back very soon!
