Relax by the river, hidden amongst trees and fields, where sprawling space meets abundant outdoor adventure. Your riverside, self-serving, primitive stay will leave you feeling refreshed and closer to nature. The cool, shaded space snuggled between a stream and rushing river will be your own private retreat, on several acres, along beautiful Henry Fork River. Seclusion awaits, minutes from historic downtown Morganton restaurants, shops, breweries and more, even nestled along a “winery trail”. If you’re looking to stay put – tubing, body boarding, fishing, paddling, and creative fun await you. Sip your percolated morning coffee by the rushing river, spend afternoons fishing, painting and skipping rocks, into an evening roaming the area and fireside cuddling. If you’re seeking to venture out, head minutes away to hike South Mountain State Park trails and waterfalls, stroll Morganton greenway trails, take the kids (or pets) to all-inclusive Catawba Meadows Park (great disc golfing), cruise the iconic Blue Ridge Parkway, explore the (literally!) cool Linville caverns, or splash around Lake James State Park beach area. The riverside area comfortably accommodates eight. Bring your family, friends, pets, and your sense of adventure!

Beautiful secluded spot. We absolutely loved our stay at the wanderer. The summer heat didn't even phase us as we were floating in the river. Cell service was minimal, which is just what we needed to disconnect. I can't wait to go back.

Perfect spot for the night, and would have loved to stay longer. Right on the river, shaded, and private. Enjoyed coffee by the river and the kids played and swam. Will definitely be back!

Great group site
Camping spot was great! Lots of space for 3 tents and easy access to the river. At first the other campsite across the way seemed pretty close, but the river drowns out any noise. The only confusion we had was the firewood. To me (also new to HipCamp), "firewood provided" and being told it was stacked meant that there would be precut firewood provided and stacked at the campsite. When I reached out once we were there and didn't see any, I was told that it was collect your own and you can use whatever was left at the site. This is totally fine, it would have just been nice to know ahead of time. Just to make it easier we got ahold of someone to pick up a bundle on their way to the site. I would just use caution going late in the summer incase the woods are picked over or if you are physically limited from going to collect/cut your own; just bring a bundle or 2 with you. Also, the directions to get there could have been a little clearer, the details provided made it a bit confusing even though it's a pretty straight drive in. Other than that, it was a great site.

Camping with kids and a dog!!
Big open spot on the river with plenty of space between the one other site!! Kids and dog all had a great time exploring and playing games. I would bring firewood in or stop at Food Lion near by. There is wood to supplement or get you started but not enough if you are hoping for a big fire all weekend. We will be back😃

Great spot!
Really nice spot along the creek! Only one other campsite nearby, so quiet and able to really enjoy the nature. A bucket for water, a bucket toilet, tp, and a saw were provided which was great! If you're not into foraging your own firewood, you may want to bring your own.
