Game lands are nearby with hunting for deer, bear etc. in season of course. No hunting allowed at Gator Creek. Not much light pollution so great for sky watchers. Lots of wild plants.

We have an outdoor shower and porta john located at my personal cabin but guest are welcome to use it or even pitch your tent in my cabin yard. City water available. We are adding a cooking shack for your use and hope to have it ready in a couple weeks. We do ask that you dispose of your trash appropriately because of the wild animals at Gator Creek. Hope you enjoy your stay.

Secluded, close to wildlife refuge
Joyce’s Hipcamp was perfect! So private and secluded. The property was flat which made finding a camp spot super easy. Her amenities (porta Jon) were very clean. It was the midway point for visiting the two local wildlife refuges. Will definitely be staying here again and recommending it to others. We were visiting the local refuges to learn more about the red wolf population and we may have heard them howling from her property after dark (or maybe coyotes). Either way, It was magical.

Gator Creek Camping
Quiet, peaceful, lots to do
It was a fantastic trip! totally secluded, yet close to amenities, if needed. Fishing in the river was great, caught some big crappies. Saw tons of wildlife. It has everything you need to enjoy a laid back, no electronics style lifestyle (but have good signal for T-mobile!) and see a billion stars! I thoroughly enjoyed the Perseid meteor shower while there. Definitely will come back.

Gator Creek Camping
Best Hipcamp I’ve stayed at so far!
Joyce’s land at Gator Creek was everything I wanted in a campsite! It is the pinnacle of privacy. The property was in an area with very little light pollution for the best stargazing! The shooting berm was a very unique and fun addition! Nearby is a little store run by Colon Bailey and it was like a trip back in time. We stopped in after a day of fishing in the nearby river for a delicious barbecue lunch and cold drinks. I will no doubt be back to stay many more times this summer!
