Great sunsets over the Neuse River
Steve was a relaxed and generous host. Site was perfect for our rig and the sunsets and fire pit were magical. Winston the dog was a love, and thr fresh eggs Steve offered made for an epic omelette. Great jumping off point to visit New Bern and Croatan National Forest. Would return In a heartbeat.

Steve was an awesome host - his dog Winston and chickens were an added treat. Views are breathtaking. Nice picnic and fire pit area. Bring your fishing poles ! We stayed here while attending the air show at cherry point and steve was very accommodating to our extra car. Our family definitely plans to return !

Steve has a wonderful place, the location is amazing and he was a incredible host making us feel very comfortable and welcome. The views are gorgeous and he has the sweetest dog, Winston. To top it all off you are so close to everything in just a very short drive. We will definitely be back to camp here again. One of my favorite Hipcamp spots so far!

Stunning waterfront property!
Gorgeous waterfront property! Steve and his trusty sidekick Winston 🐕 were the perfect hosts. The property sits directly against the river and provides gorgeous views all day long. Took the paddle board out multiple times and the water was calm and beautiful! He also has numerous kayaks available to take out on the water if you'd like. His pup, Winston, is the friendliest, sweetest good boy who will show you all around the property and greet you every morning when you wake up. Loveed my stay and would highly recommend it to others!

Relaxing stay right on the water
Enjoyed a beautiful sunset and a great breakfast on our one night stay. The whole family enjoyed talking with Steve, watching the free range chickens go by, and playing with his dog Winston. Incredible view right on the water. Plenty of room for our roof top tent on the gravel space next to Steve's residence.

Waterfront camping & chickens!
What a great camping site. There was an electrical RV hook up which made “glamping” very comfortable even in the middle of summer. Steve and his dog Winston are great hosts. The kayak was vert nice. Just a lovely site.

Amazing stay with a great host!
Steve’s place was just as described - very quiet and comfortable with a great view! My boyfriend and I drove in from another state and weren’t arriving until after midnight and Steve was more than accommodating. He made sure we had everything we asked for/needed. His jet ski was also 100% worth the extra cost - we had free range of the whole river and really had a great time. I would definitely stay again if I am in the area - Steve was an amazing host!

Great host, very nice place, and wonderful stay.
I could ramble on for days (and will) about how great the stay was. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then Webster's dictionary doesn't have enough to describe it.

Do the kayaking
Steve was very knowledgeable about the area and had plenty of suggestions of how to enjoy our time while we were staying at his place. He was very helpful and great conversation. The kayaking was truly special and I’d do it all over again. He was patient and helpful with our two dogs and his dog is a precious.

Sunset on the River
Steve and his Labrador were there to greet me when I arrived. I was able to pitch my tent right near the water. Steve was a great host, inviting me to use his bbq to cook my meal. After dinner I was able to enjoy a beautiful sunset on the river with a fire in the fire pit.

Would recommend to anyone!
Everything I expected and more! Loved the location. Steve has a really awesome spot. The view was out of this world. His pup Winston is adorable and was tolerant of my high energy puppy haha. I’m very grateful I found this spot and recommend it to anyone looking! I felt safe and welcomed.

Gorgeous views, generous host!
10/10 would recommend. The location itself is amazing. Waterfront. My dog loved it. Camping here was a big step up from a campsite for sure. Internet. Also you have access to the 1st floor. It was pouring when I got there and Steve helped me set up my tent and was very welcoming about me staying indoors if I needed to to avoid getting down poured on. Steve was an extremely generous host. He set up a cooking station for me even. We shared a few meals and he took me into town for grocery shopping once! The house is getting renovations but that didn’t bother me. The bathroom was in good shape w a big sink For me to wash my dishes etc too. The city New Burn was actually adorable and I would have never visited if it wasn’t for Steve’s affordable HipCamp. I came a day early and stayed a day late. I would come back for sure!!

This was a great getaway! Steve is a fantastic host (I can’t forget about his dog Winston who was great to have around, too!) and was always available for anything we needed and very accommodating. The property is beautiful and conveniently placed near a lot to do and see, but if you’re camping it has everything you need. I would 100% return! We can’t thank Steve enough for such a great weekend!
