Seclusion right off I-40
Beautiful quiet property you'd never know was like 10 min from the interstate. Engaged and helpful host Nathan let us upgrade sites for no charge when he didn't have to.

Tent Site 4
Campsite #4 is small but cozy. Good for 1 or 2 campers. Only one tent though. Beautiful piece of property. Fantastic location close to Waynesburg and Maggie Valley. Rustic accommodations. If you don’t mind basic facilities it’s perfect. Host was very helpful and helped jump my truck so I could get home.

Tent Site 11
Beautiful mountain site
Hosts Brandi and Nathan are incredibly sweet, accommodating, and friendly! Site #11 is very spacious and has a gently running creek at the back of it—lovely place for reading a book! There’s a perfect spot for a hammock, too. I stayed here on a busy holiday weekend, though, and felt rather crowded by the surrounding campsites. There are a couple of other sites down the hill that seem less crowded. Brandi and Nathan were exceptionally kind, responsive, and hospitable and I would definitely stay at their campground again in another site.

Tent Site 9
So happy we found this camp ground. Unlike all the other camp grounds around, this one was more off grid, and the sites were not all cramped together. The people running the camp grounds were awesome and super helpful. They responded quickly when we booked online and with questions we asked during our stay. We booked one night then ended up adding another. Definitely recommend!

Great times
John is the grooviest type of host. He and his wife (I’m sorry I forgot her name) were lovey and accommodating. I almost ran over John by accident with our car and he was still the nicest guy and gave us some matches for our fire. :)
