Weekend Stay in White Tail
We had such a great time at Rusty’s! We stayed in White Tail. There were two COMFY queen beds and two cots (that we didn’t need to use.) There was a table and chairs inside, a picnic table downstairs, and logs around the personal fire pit for seating. They also left us brand new heated blankets and a propane heater for the chilly nights. The tent is bigger than expected but was cozy at night. The restrooms were a short walk away and were always clean. The river and surrounding area was beautiful. There is a train track VERY close and trains do come through at night, so bring some earplugs and you’ll be fine. Rusty’s was the perfect spot for a nice, relaxing weekend! We will definitely be back!
Pro tip: if you need any supplies (fire starter, snacks, propane, hygiene products/medicine, or a delicious cheese pizza) check out Red Hill Grocery. They are about 5 miles down the road in Bakersville and the ladies that work there are super nice! They also have a takeout pizza and burger spot next door.

I loved the place, the bath house need a handle on the inside so you can pull it closed. The beds were great, clean. Also be sure the customer has the right address for the location or put location and location 2. We had a hard time finding the place because we had the address to first location. Otherwise will be back.

Had a great weekend!
Outstanding experience. Toni goes above and beyond to make everyone’s stay a happy and memorable one. The tents are spacious with comfortable beds and a great view of the river. Bathrooms were clean. Even though it rained while we were there, we stayed dry while cooking on our camp stove and sitting comfortably underneath the tent structures.

Our family enjoyed this trip. The tent accommodations were comfortable and we really enjoyed playing in the river. My son also loved the train. (It did wake us a few times at night but the crickets put us right back to sleep). The bath house was clean and there was always hot water.
