Animal-friendly Camping
We stayed for two nights and loved it so much that we didn't want to leave! We really appreciated that our three dogs could run off leash. There was some communication needed up front to ensure the safety of the chickens on property, who I believe usually run free during the day, which is something to keep in mind. There was also a pig in a harness that wandered around from time to time. In the end, everyone got along. One of the dogs on property stuck with us throughout our stay as well; we loved her company! There was a beautiful rocky area near the campfire rings that led down to a fresh water river where we cooled off and hung out during the heat of the day. There was no cell service for AT&T or Verizon but the WiFi worked beautifully. I worked remotely on my computer one day and had no issues.

Overall a great stay the site was right by the river and pretty secluded. The only thing was that the field was very overgrown and we were not able to communicate with the host.

Random spot to camp that was great!
Great site if you want to be close to Chimney Rock state park. There were 4 sites on the property and they were all close together like a campground. Great spot for several families to land. There isn't really any place to hike or explore from the site, except the creek. It was incredible to listen to at night. It is not private, definitely on someone else's property but they were quiet and unseen. You can see neighbors over the creek but it is early spring before the leaves had grow in. The creek is definitely the highlight and it would be great in the summer!! I recommend it as a safe, clean, place to camp. There was also a potbelly pig and chickens on the property. Our dog was able to run free off leash with no issue. Be ready for the rooster alarm.
