Big Beech Creekside (#3)
Respite in the round is one of my favorite places to be! Site 3 is the perfect camp site! Being able to listen to the creek all night is so healing. Respite in the round is one of my favorite things about living in this area. A quick and scenic drive (35mins) from North Durham. You won’t regret taking some time to slow down by reserving respite in the round. Cox is a fantastic host and what she and her community has done to curate this space is so special.

Comfy bed and beautiful surroundings. If it's a really cold night, bring an extra heater.

Great spot right on the creek. You do have to walk past the house to get to the site, but it was still quiet. The shower and bathhouse were great and well lit at night. The trail along the creek is a lovely walk through the property.

Back Country Canopy (#4)
Land was spacious and all campsites weren’t super close so you didn’t feel like you were intruding on anyone’s space. Campsite four had a nice little trail to walk down too and a nice hill to help break the wind. Warning though, as to be expected, the little trail does get slick when it rains.
