We loved what was offered here. Quiet, secluded, private area to camp. The tent was super comfortable, nice fire ring, picnic table, rain flys, fire wood available on request. The area is great for kids. Trails are accessible without having to drive to trailhead. Potable water source and a toilet to make the camping that much easier.

I enjoyed the place. Sarah was very welcoming by providing firewood needed. The camp is pleasant and calm would definitely book again.

I booked Shelley’s camp as a last minute solo getaway and I could not be happier! The site is exactly like the pictures. Having a flush toilet is great too! Shelley has put a lot of thought into this site and it shows. She is also very responsive! The tent was better than expected and nice and toasty with the heater. The fire pit was set up and just ready to be lit. The coffee bar was also a very nice touch. Waking up to the clean mountain air, watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee was wonderful! I will definitely be back when I need a reprieve from everyday life! Incredibly relaxing and private!

This was the best weekend I could hope for. The view from the tent was great, heater did good as well, the lodging was adorable. Hiking trails right off the neighboring roads.

Shelley, the host, was amazing and helped me out when an unexpected storm hit and let me stay in her camper (I am from Florida, so I have never even seen snow so the wind chill going down to 0° was a bit much). The tiny parking/road up in the tent is a bit tricky and come up fast on the maps, but that may be from me never driving out of Florida before, so not a problem at all really after I got use to it!

All in all, 11/10, worth it and will definitely be going back (maybe in the summer)

We absolutely loved our stay here. It’s so cozy and private. The tent has a mattress with a memory foam cover, and it is super comfy.
There is also a flushable toilet right on site as well as water source and electrical outlet, which were a nice bonus for camping.
Shelley was super fast to respond to all our questions.
The site is close to a lot of good hiking. About an hour from Boone.
Overall we had such a good time at this campsite!
We will definitely be back.
