Wiley’s was a perfect camp spot on Pine Mountain, and Steve was a fantastic host. Highly recommend staying here.

Wonderful campground with wonderful folks. Lots of hiking trails nearby, and downtown Whitesburg is just a short drive away. We will definitely be back!

We felt at home here
This place was exactly what we wanted, roughing it in a quiet place in the mountains with some outlets, pretty string lights, a fire pit, rain shelter options, lots of “back country” holler-style style campsites & trails, out houses, off road exploring with four wheeled drive. And some hidden rock faces to scramble and photograph. We car & tent camped with a dog. The host dogs are friendly, and chase away any bears in the area :) Our host Steve, was incredibly responsive & friendly and he guided us throughout the whole process with what sites to book, what to explore on the property, and directions to a few local spots too. We camped way back when Jim Webb was around and feel like the place still has his heart and soul in it. From the dedicated trails, to flamingo decor, to finding Jim Webb original poems through out the place and running into good hearted stranger folks who are down to hang, we had a wonderful time. Thanks!

Stayed at Mars, but the whole place is so unique and the hosts are welcoming. Definitely will be back and recommend highly for others to stay at Wiley's.

Wiley's Last Resort (pond area)
The simple bear necessities of life
Loved this spot. So eccentric and full of history -- it's built on the ruins of a 1930s resort, and there are two cabins on the property that date back to the 1800s (!) Steve is super helpful as a host and taught me a ton about rare native plant species growing in the area. There also are power outlets and a fridge available for your use, which I was not expecting and which was a pleasant surprise. Tons of wildlife, including black bears that keep a nice safe distance from you (they hang out on the opposite side of the pond from the campsites) and will be totally chill if you just want to watch them playing about and doing bear stuff.
