Catawba river camping
Very peaceful, safe and quiet place to camp for the evening. Appreciated having lots of room to ourselves. Hopefully as the host works to add more spots, they keep them spaced out so the privacy and quiet remains the same. Lovely spot on the Catawba river!

We stayed here with some friends for a weekend and couldn't have been happier. Charlie was very accommodating, communicated well, and was a pleasure to chat with. The space was perfect for hanging out with friends and walking the dogs off leash. There's plenty of privacy, yet everything you might need is close by. As others noted, this is right next to a small, private air strip. We only heard/saw a handful of planes take off but definitely wasn't a bother. If anything, it was fun to watch. Highly recommend a stay here and I hope we'll be able to return.

A great experience- we loved every minute and our dogs enjoyed running around the beautiful property. I missed seeing that the camp was set up on a private airstrip, and we really enjoyed watching planes taking off into the sky above us. Would 10/10 reccomend to anyone looking for a secluded spot for a quick getaway.

Our stay at Charlie’s property was great. Charlie was an awesome host and he will definitely go back again. Great location to unplug and be away from everything but still close enough if you need to go to the store. We used Charlie’s spot as a base camp and went hiking in the mountains for waterfalls. Crabfish falls and Thomas Creek Falls were very easy to get to. The camping spot has enough room for several campers. We brought two and had water and sewage for two spots and the spot under the pole barn was electricity.

Let the dogs run
Great isolated location with lots of room for the dogs to run off the leash. Full hookups and covered spot was perfect. Close to hiking in the area. Will be back. Thanks!

Awesome spot!
Charlie and his wife were great hosts; very thoughtful, and generous. The tent site was secluded, and peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay and plan on coming back!

Great time fishing and swimming
Great spot! Beautiful piece of land with lots of footpaths to walk through the fields and woods and great swimming holes for the kids. The campsite is huge and flat, plenty of space for multiple tents (we had more than enough room for tent + fire + horseshoes) with choice between setting up in the sun or shaded under the trees. The property was beautiful—especially in the mornings when the mist and deer were in the fields. We used this a basecamp and brought our fishing raft and floated down the Catawba into Lake James. This section of river is quiet and takes you into the prettiest and most secluded section of the lake that most people never even see since big boats can't usually reach it. Great bass fishing. Charlie was super nice and very attentive but didn't hover. Will definitely be back! Thanks!
