Deluxe Camper Rental - Passport
Relaxing and lovely
Mark's place is stunning -- a large camp area surrounded by beautiful trees and a babbling brook. It is great to have a bed, stove, refrigerator, and shower in the camper, then step outside and enjoy the firepit or the hammock. If you're chemically sensitive though, you probably already know that campers have a lot of synthetic materials, so better to stay in the tent, which is tall and large and has a nice cot and air mattress. I assumed there would be hiking, but not much of the land is cleared of dense underbrush, so plan to hike in any number of nearby parks. Chimney Rock and Hickory Nut Falls are magnificent. We also enjoyed trying the hibiscus mead at Fae Nectar. As far as the Deluxe Camper, which has two very comfortable recliners, there is another camper within 50 feet on either side plus there's the clubhouse. There was no one in one of the campers so we had the place to ourselves, which was so great, although you can hear the AC compressor from the clubhouse. A lot of people don't even hear things like that, but I'm very sensitive to my environment. Mark and his wife were super nice and accommodating.

Secluded Tent Camping
The secluded site really feels secluded. Actually there are others pretty close to you. Overall it seems like a work in progress but it’s getting there. Trail in isn’t very compatible with a van, jeep or small Subaru probably better. Overall it’s a cool getaway. Oh yeah the dog always wants a ride.

The host was very welcoming to our stay. My daughter and I had a great time. I would definitely recommend this spot. My only recommendation is taking a four-wheel-drive car. I came in with my van. It all worked well though.

5 star camp
Great camping location. Nicely secluded from the other campsites and any neighboring properties / roads. The creek was a short walk away, which my kid really enjoyed. _Plenty_ of firewood to scavenge from the land. The camping pad area was just barely big enough for my super-large 9person tent (oversized for the family), your normal size tent will definitely fit. The rest of the camping area was a good size too, and well laid out. The owners/ hosts were very nice. You can tell they are putting in the effort on this property. I wouldn't say it's perfect, but they aren't done putting on the final touches yet. Definitely a 5 star stay. Pretty much the only thing that you should be aware of is that the "bathroom/shower" is in a singlewide mobile-home (clubhouse) and you have to walk through a living room/kitchen/hallway to get to the bathroom. I don't think the owners actually live in the "clubhouse" since they have a camper trailer just outside of the clubhouse. They had a sign on the clubhouse door that says it's "open 24/7, no need to knock". So even though I felt like I might be bothering someone by going in to go to the bathroom at 7am on a Saturday - I actually don't think I was bothering anyone.

The owners are absolutely AMAZING!!! The site was so nice and secluded and they were nice enough to pull my car out when it got stuck in mud!

FWIW Hip Camp- A neutral rating is not by default low. Beautiful property and forest, but aggressively managed. I hope the pristine mountain stream that passes through stays clean..
