The Forks
The forks
First corner lot coming into the field on left, 2 wire fence separates you from mills river. Short walk in the river to the fork where it meets north mills river, saw numerous large trout although I wasn’t skilled or lucky enough to catch one. Beautiful property saw a lot of wildlife including a groundhog living right by the fork in rivers. Had a picnic table and campfire on site, and had portapotti and 2 outhouses closer to the other campsites.

Meadow #3
Fantastic large open site
Phil's land is lovely! Large open and very considerately set up. Phil was very kind and flexible with us arriving and leaving a bit late. There are other campsites in view, but not close enough hear anything from them jnless they are being particularly loud. At night you are serenaded by frogs and other river critters.

Upper meadow
Beautiful Mountain Hideaway
I loved the stay at Upper Meadow. Upper Meadow is at the end of the lot, so there is a bit more privacy compared to the other sites which you drive past to get there. The deck on the mountainside gives a great view and setup and a lot of the little touches like solar lamps, covered picnic tables and benches around the fire pit really make this site easy to setup. I also enjoyed the quick trip down to the river where I was able to catch some large trout for lunch.

Upper meadow
Beautiful location on the river
We have a great time at the upper meadow. It was quiet and the river was wonderful. The tent over the table was perfect. Thanks so much for sharing your land!

Upper meadow
This is the second time we’ve stayed on Phil’s land. I’ll keep coming back. It’s convenient to everything, you’re secluded and nobody bothers you. Thanks again Phil!

Lower Meadow #2
Top tier camping experience. Lovely location by the creek, plenty of space between the other campers, nestled perfectly between the convenience of town and Pisgah. 10/10
