We had an amazing time at camp topisaw. Site 3 was perfect for our family of 4. The path down to the creek is a little steep and slender but we managed well. The water was so nice and refreshing. The kids enjoyed playing on their tubes and looking for beautiful rocks. The host had our fire going when we arrived. The firewood we purchased was on site and covered, since we had rain in the area the day of arrival. Very kind of them.

The only issues we experienced were the hornets, horse flies and wasp were pretty violent st the out house. They provided spray but I was stung just getting in the door.

We truly had a blast. But after we left I got a pretty rudely worded text.
That stated "Why would you leave your garbage for me to deal with?"
To which I replied "I'm sorry?"
Because we left the site in immaculate condition.
His reply said " except the big black garbage bag. " never mind. "
HE THOUGHT THE BUCKET AND PLASTIC THEY PROVIDED FOR THE FIREWOOD, THAT WE LEFT EXACTLY WERE THEY PUT IT, EXCEPT THE WOOD! BECAUSE CLEARLY WE USED IT. AND I TOLD HIM THIS......
AND THE RESPONSE WAS, "OK. I APOLOGIZE SORRY.
UP UNTIL THIS POINT THE EXPERIENCE WAS 100% EXCELLENT.

BUT TO JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS AND ASSUME THINGS WITHOUT CHECKING AND BEING SO DOWN RIGHT UGLY WAS TOTALLY OUT OF LINE.

I UUNDERSTANDS. SOME ARE DISRESPECTFUL AND LEAVE TRASH BEHIND. BUT WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON ALWAYS RESPECTING OTHERS PROPERTY
I WILL NOT RETURN. NOR Recommend

Our supposed trash!!! Uh... Our setup and the owners pupsKids enjoyed the creek.Thank you for a beautiful fire

The space in the woods is ideal...10 minute walk from the field where you park your car through the woods to the camp site under massive magnolias and other trees. Also, it's right above the creek.

Great spot, fun creek for kids, not crowded. We loved exploring the forest through the well-maintained paths. The camp dogs were very friendly!

The property is absolutely gorgeous, and our campsite (#4) was super private and secluded. The hosts also went above and beyond, even taking care of a cat we found on the side of the road on our way up the whole weekend. Can’t wait to come back!

They have a gorgeous place out here. Perfect place to sleep under the stars and spend the day out at the river. Hope we can make it back out here soon!
