The camp is located on a large horse shoe bend of the Amite River:  Pitch a tent, Fish, Boat, ATV trails, campfires, electric, water, WIFI.  We're about 10 minutes to Interstate 10 and 4.7 miles to a convenience store.  We get great sky views at night when it's clear.  We're close to the city, but really off the beaten path in some of the last real woods in E. Baton Rouge.

Site was beautiful next to the pond. Plenty of wood to burn around the area, and Damon offered us to use his boat to troll around the pond. I would definitely go back for another trip.

This made for a fairly easy and peaceful overnight stop while on a road trip through the south. The property could use a little tidying up to feel more inviting, but otherwise safe and serene. Damon was responsive and made sure I had what I needed.

Damon was fine. He had a hobo friend of his staying there who actually walked up on my daughter trying to pop a squat. She laughed but was very embarrassed. The hobo friend was camping in a tent as well, so the 1 group minimum is false. The hipcamp site also said there were trash bins and bathrooms available, both are false! We camped at his backdoor, which was “ok” but his friends dog kept interrupting our stay by getting into our fishing zone and tackle. Damon, himself, was a great host, he even offered us coffee on Saturday morning. I do not wish to take my kids camping and deal with conspiracy theorist hippies when I wish to enjoy the outdoors though. Damon is not the one I complain about.

The place is a little rough, its a tight space for a 4 man tent,and you camp out basically right next to a persons house.

Unfortunately, just before our stay, Damon's property was severely flooded from storm surge in the local river. Damon was quick to let us know the situation, and was very understanding if we wanted to change our plans. Luckily, his property drained quickly and we were able to find a nice dry piece of land to camp for the night. Our host's dogs were very friendly, as were the neighbors we met. There was plenty of dry wood around for our campfire too. This is not a glamping resort; but if you are comfortable finding and setting up your camp it's a great place for some bayou hospitality.
