Always our favorite place!
Bluff Hollow is our favorite place to camp. Our family of 5 and pups have the best time. We have 3 kids ages 11, 9 , and 1.5 and they are smitten over all the exciting things to here! The river is the favorite but just all the cool nature finds and trails as well. Every campsite is well maintained and the toilet, even though outside, is impeccable. Eric is the best host!

A beautiful and peaceful campsite!
Eric's Bluff Hollow on the Root River was an excellent camp to stay for a good night's rest on my long road trip. It was so peaceful to be down near the river and the clean and well outfitted outhouse a short walk up the hill was perfect. I am so glad I got there early enough to enjoy the late afternoon and soak in the beauty. The fall colors are gorgeous this time of year!

Beautiful and serene
We had a great stay at Bluff Hallow. The autumn leaves were just beginning to turn, and it was warm and lovely. The bluff in the moonlight and morning sunrise was beautiful.

We happen to be there by ourselves which made it even more wonderful. The bluffs, the large upper site for our camper and the setting was so relaxing. We couldn't have asked for a better place to unwind. Went for a dip twice in the Root River and saw an eagle in the big old dead tree on the back side just below the bluffs. Amazing!!!

Beautiful, secluded site
The site is very large, and is split between an upper site near the entrance, and a lower site near the river. Both sites have fire rings. We parked our teardrop camper at the upper site, but still enjoyed spending time at the lower site. It was well maintained, and it felt like we had an entire campground to ourselves. We had a great time, and would definitely stay here again.

At the base of the bluffs...
The property was great. Loads of scenery and you have it all to yourself. Plenty of wildlife and the fishing was good too (nothing big but plenty of action. We had beautiful weather so that really helped. I will be back. Tim

Nice secluded site and a beautiful area. We stayed at the first upper camps site with our trailer camper and took the short walk to the river with our daughter and dogs. The loved playing in the stream.

This place is MAGICAL!!! The fact that it is only YOU to roam the great mowed trails, areas along the river not worrying you’ll run into someone is so incredible feeling! Eric than you for sharing your slice of heaven!

Although the weather was less then ideal the campsites are beautiful and peaceful! The kids were busy from the moment that we arrived! Night skies are so awesome too. Kayaking, tubing, fishing, exploring the river were just a few highlights. It's like the peacefulness of the BWCA but without the portage and drive. Highly recommend!

Scenic and Secluded
There is an upper campsite for an RV and lower site on the river for tents. It’s about a 5 minute walk up and down the trail in between. A small all wheel drive vehicle could be used. We used our Honda CRV to go back and forth with fishing gear and kayaks. We used a small generator for electricity. Great site full of adventure - fishing kayaking hiking wildlife and scenery!

Stayed at the upper site. Plenty of open space for activities but very shady thanks to the old mature trees. There is 1 patch of flat grass halfway between the gate and the main part of the upper site which is perfect for any size tent. Overall a wonderful piece of land to camp on. Host was great!

On the River
This spot is the best we’ve found on hipcamp yet!!! You can either camp up in the hills or down in the bluffs on the river. We camped down by the river and it was perfect. The site was so well maintained that I walked around barefoot the whole time. My wife walked up to the out house and said it’s the nicest she’s ever been in, not only did it have hand sanitizer but it also smelled nice. Plenty of trails to explore… I really wish I had a 4 wheeler cause the trails were perfect

It was secluded and beautiful. I went with just my daughter. We felt very safe. We can camped by the river. The rain the first night sounded beautiful. We live fairly near. I will definitely try to return, even if it's only for a private day at the water.

We loved tenting at the river bottom. The kids loved tubing down the bit of rapids around the property. Stars In the sky at night with a crackle of the fire. Absolutely excellent time with lasting memories.

Camping with kids
Perfect camp trip! The kids loved having all the space to run around. As a scavenger hunt, we hid 20 little plastic animals around the trails and the kids earned $1 for each one they found. Kept them busy for hours! The supermoon was amazing, stars abundant and bugs minimal! We love having the option of buying firewood from the host. Eric had it there waiting for us. Super convenient! Always a great place to stay!
