Honestly it wasn’t really bad but we scheduled the trip for fishing and they have it advertised with fishing…there’s no fish. Other than that it was nice. Not as secluded as I wanted but no one really bothered us, the site was clean and cared for and honestly it really was beautiful. Just not what I was looking for. You want a nice relaxing stay to do nothing that’s your place. You wanna fish, find somewhere else

We had a great time, camping one night at this cozy river beach. We didn't miss anything and will definitely come back.

Really nice people. Too close to the freeway for me. I was looking for something a little more "off grid" but the hosts were great.

Not private but nice river
It was definitely a different kind of camping. River was nice to have. Would be better to have a bit more privacy but overall the group gives it about an 8/10

An Evening in Hiddenite.
My wife and I had a great stay in Hiddenite. We arrived in the afternoon and camped by the river. Enjoyed a nice dinner with a fire. Great stars. It’s a shame that this place went through such a tragedy with the flood. I would encourage everyone to go and help out. It’s a beautiful location.
