The forest is haunted by the mischievous Wolpertinger ..More to come . Learn more about this land: Please text me if I don't accept your booking request right away.   Our Campground is located right across from the duck river!  Set up your campsite in a field near the road (for easy unloading of gear) or go part way back into the woods for a little more privacy. If you REALLY want to be alone you can hike 10 to 15 minutes down towards the creek and set up in a much more remote location where the local deer may be the only ones to visit you in the morning.  There are even some cows that come over to visit during the day. Duck River (now a lake) is just minutes away and has some great fishing and boating. There are hiking and mountain biking trails around the river. The side roads have nice views of the local farms and would also be a great place to bike. The town is about 10 minutes away and the city is 20 minutes away.  There is room for a couple of small tear-drop trailers and vans too. I can fit one or two RVs in also. . Here is a Review , Campground Review: We really enjoyed  the weekend at Tomahawk Primitive Campground, a veteran owned, private campground, just outside Cullman, AL. As the name suggests, this is primitive camping, so no power or water at the sites, but nothing wrong with boondocking, right?!  There are 3 private sites that could handle tents, teardrops, small trailers, or vans, as well as an open field that could hold larger RVs or group camp with multiple tents and/or small trailers. There is also 3 tents sites just a short hike down to the creek at the back of the property where you can camp at your own waterfront site. Each style site is equipped with a fire ring. The owner has one room in his house blocked off that includes facilities for guests to use and is called the Fest Room. The Fest Room includes a full bathroom with shower that was very clean, a couch and TV (which is a nice place to get out of the elements if the southern weather suddenly turns on you or to just catch an evening movie) , a coffee maker, and a large deck. The deck overlooks a portion of the property and turned out to be a great spot to meet up with other campers or the owner/host and share your camping stories. The deck also includes two gas grills that can be used with permission from the owner. As mentioned above, the property includes a creek that runs along the property line that was nice to take in, whether sitting on a rock and dipping your feet in the cool water, or hanging a hammock and letting the afternoon slide by with the sounds of flowing water. Our dogs and the host dog, named Bear, loved playing together in the creek! Wild blackberries were growing all around the property and are starting to get ripe. Picking a hand full of these was a nice addition to our camp breakfast. We found good cell phone service with Verizon throughout the property. There is a Dollar General and gas station/convenient store 5 minutes from the property if you need to get any supplies. While we camped this weekend we also had the opportunity to check out a few of the local attractions. Goat Island Brewery is not too far from the campground and offers up award winning craft beer. We also visited the Ava Maria Grotto at the St. Bernard Abbey, which featured 125 miniature reproductions of some of the most famous religious structures in the world.  A short 25-minute drive south the campground takes you to Mulberry Fork where you can go hiking, tubing, and the site also hosts kayak slalom races in the spring.  5 minutes from the campground is Duck River Dam that has a boat launch and additional hiking trails. At $15 a night, you can’t beat this to get away from it all for a weekend!  The host was very friendly (and the host dog too!) and was an expert outdoorsman who loves to pass on his survival knowledge. We will definitely be back. ----------------------------

Awesome HipCamp Experience
Loved camping down by the creek listening to the water. Very peaceful. Campsite was well stocked with firewood and utensils. Brian and Deb were great hosts and provided everything we needed for an amazing HipCamp experience with our grandchildren, ages 8 and 6 years old.

Nice spot near a moving stream. Close to all the things you want to do near cullman. Duck River reservoir is a stone’s throw. Nice, communicative host!

I arrived at this campsite after dark and left before the sun rose. The host contacted me and reassured me that I was in a good spot. The site was level and clear and had a nice fire ring. It is close to the road and there is a fair amount of traffic noise. To be fair, I didn’t get a chance to see the rest of the property. It served my purposes just fine.

A great little getaway.
Cozy, quiet, and very peaceful. My wife and I had an amazing weekend getaway into the solitude of nature with a bubbling creek and a few coyotes at a distance for company. We cant wait to come back.

Excellent place to stay. I was provided a hot shower and hot food after a day of riding my bike in the rain. They’re good people.

An awesome week!
What an awesome week! The host, Brian, was quick to greet me at my arrival. He gave me the layout of the land, directions for some great hiking spots and local activities too. Very peaceful camping spots and such great weather too! Definitely need to come back soon. Thanks again, Brian!
