Creekside "B"
First visit using Hipcamp
J and P Creekside Retreat is a beautiful place that is charmingly decorated and very quiet. The tent sites are spacious, and we were easily able to fit our Ionqic 5 SUV and a rather large tent that connects to it. We had more than enough room for both. This was the first time that my husband and I used Hipcamp and we will most definitely use it next time.

We had a great time tent camping at John’s place. The site was tidy and comfortable and the kids enjoyed playing in the communal space & on the trampoline.

The Hideaway
I hid away at The Hideaway!
This is truly a slice of paradise. John has added so many quaint & special touches to his property. Everywhere you look is something to make you smile. I wanted to rest & relax for a couple of days & The Hideaway campsite provided privacy in a tropical setting. The hammock was my favorite spot on my site. Every time I got in I unintentionally napped. I can’t wait to return. John was an attentive host providing a beautiful, fun environment.
