Super nice hosts.
What an amazing place! From the lights around the trees at night to the great amenities, this place is great. Hosts are the nicest people I have encountered while using Hipcamp.

Ideal Family Campout property!
Beautifully maintained property and kind hosts. The kids loved petting and feeding the horses. Adults loved all the space for the kids to roam within sight and the oak tree canopy over the tent sites. Bathrooms were well stocked and a great treat for a tent camp weekend! The BlackFire Bistro was a hidden gem. We ordered takeout for our last night and dined like kings with steak and seafood by our campfire. We would come again.

Tent camping at Newell Lodge.
Beautiful place to tent camp at Buffalo Creek/Newell Lodge. The land is amazing and there is plenty of shelter if needed in case of bad weather. There is also a restaurant open on the weekends. Can’t say enough good things about Harvin also. He has been super helpful and just a great guy to talk to. Lots of wildlife on the premises and lots of horses too. There are also super nice cabins scattered around the premises. Planned on staying for 3 nights but extended my stay for an indefinite amount of time. Highly recommend.

This was a nice place to camp, when I arrived, I was greeted by Mr. Harland, he allowed me to pick a site to set my tent up, very nice and courteous man. The grounds and restrooms were clean and well maintained. There are so many oaks with Spanish noss hanging off of trees, making it so peaceful. Ashley's property allows for tent, rv and cabin rentals. There is also a bistro on property but was not open when I camped overnight. I would highly recommend.

Buffalo Creek @ Newell Lodge is a gorgeous camping site with tons of large oak trees draped in Spanish Moss. This was our maiden voyage in our new camper and we couldn’t have asked for a better stay. Harvin was waiting on us upon our arrival. He led us to the campground and allowed us to pick which camping site we’d like. He was friendly and ensured we were good before leaving us to set up camp. My husband and I LOVED how peaceful and serene this site was. I would most definitely recommend this location for future campers whether they bring a tent, a camper, an RV, or choose to stay in one of the cabins on the grounds.

We loved the campground! We were actually the only ones there and it was blissfully quiet! The staff were all helpful and friendly! We'd like to come back for Thanksgiving next year and rent some of the cottages, as well as camp!

A Beautiful & Quiet Location
I was offered my pick of locations and they were all wonderful areas to set up a tent. Lots of shade trees and sandy soil that made it easy to steak down the tent. I visited mid-week in the off season but I was met at the front gate where they led me into the camping area. Incredibly friendly hosts and a beautiful location for a camping getaway. Highly recommended!

Glamping Tent
Ashley had a problem with the tent due to all of the recent rain and offered us a free upgrade to a cabin. Now that is customer service! The grounds are beautiful and peaceful making for a relaxing place to stay. Fellow motorcyclists - the road in is 2.5 miles of dirt which is super soft like sand. Not ideal terrain so use caution!

Nice property and even has an indoor hot shower and toilet. You can tell at times this place is probably hopping. If there were events I’d come back to check them out. They were very attentive. A bit off the track but that was nice.

Glamping Tent
We loved the layout and cozy details of the glamping tent, but unfortunately happened to arrive during a really intense thunderstorm with a long stretch of heavy downpours. No tent would be able to hold up without a few leaks here and there, And neither did this one. But we were prepared to weather the storm and hope for the best. Instead, Ashley offered a cabin for us to move into for the night! We were so grateful and ended up having a dry restful night. The beautiful setting among the live oaks made coffee on the porch the next morning extra special. We'll definitely be back!

Beautiful property, camping among the live oaks. Peaceful, quiet, in the woods. Took a long walk around looking at the horses, pond, trees, and farm. Dinner at the on-site cafe was an excellent suprise. We will be back! Highly recommended.

I got sick & was able leave. I’m now in the hospital getting ready for brain surgery in a couple of hours & can without worry. It WOULD be nice to get a refund without having to ask. I don’t know that I’ll be camping again in my lifetime

Memorial Day Weekend @Buffalo Creek
Our weekend at Buffalo Creek @ Newell Lodge was fantastic! So quiet and peaceful and did I mention BEAUTIFUL? We were contacted by Ashley prior to our arrival with complete directions and instructions. We were greeted at the front of the property by John at our appointed time who directed us to our site and was so pleasant to speak with. John checked on us throughout the weekend and made sure everything was going well, plus gave us lots of background history of the place (provided because we asked). We ate at the Swampfire Bistro Saturday evening there on the property and everything was delicious - with enough food to feed us another meal on Sunday with the leftovers (win-win).

I loved the place clean and quiet. Ashley was a great host. She returned text right away if you had a question. We camped in our 5th wheel. The only thing that I didn't like not being able to stay longer.

What an amazing place! We went for one night and we wish we could’ve stayed longer. We were met by Harvin who showed us around the site and let us chose where to put the tent. The Oak tree’s are amazing so we camped underneath with a view of the horses in the paddock. The facilities were spotless, toilets and showers. Dinner in the restaurant was amazing. Great value and the Best steak we’ve ever had. We even bought some steak to take back home. The following morning we took a trail ride with Ashley. What a way to end the weekend. We cannot wait to go back and next time we’ll be staying longer.

Grounds are gorgeous. Horses are so sweet and friendly. The dinner at restaurant was delicious. Okefenokee swamp is close by and definitely worth the visit. Highly recommend staying here, bring your own table, there are none at site.
