We arrived for a 3 night stay at Morgan’s beautiful farm. Morgan was extremely flexible, as we arrived much later than originally anticipated. We had enough daylight to set up our tent, start up the fire, and make our first meal. Jax (our pup) helped collect firewood as there were plenty of big sticks for him to play with (and help dad out). Falling asleep to the sound of the babbling brook was so blissful, and being away from the city/ bright lights was a refreshing change. In the morning, we scooped up some creek water , made some hot coffee, and eased into our morning alongside the cows and calves. We checked out some awesome spots as recommended by the host (Saxapahaw was our favorite cute little town/ river community). For the other days we visited some pretty amazing trails/ hikes and escaped to the not- too- far town of Raleigh for some fun. We loved our entire stay and can’t wait come back !

This was a nice little area for a couple, or maybe a couple with one child. The lady who greeted us was super super nice and helpful. She gave us great detailed instructions, greeted us upon arrival, and was very polite. We had a great time!

My time camping at Morgan’s was a delight! The land is beautiful and spacious, but full of wonderful trees. I enjoyed waking to the sounds of running water from the creek, as well as birds and owls, as they too happily occupied the property. You can hike or find a spot to sit and take in all the beauty while there. Morgan was super helpful and kind in answering any questions. I can’t wait to go back!

My husband and I had such a FANTASTIC time on Morgan's property! It was so peaceful and private with a great little creek right by the campsite! We brought our dog with us and she absolutely enjoyed going into the water and exploring around the campsite. There was a little bit of a walk from the car to the site, but Morgan let us use a wagon that she had so the walk was no problem at all! The land/campsite is amazing! Morgan is an amazing hostess! And, bonus, there is an adorable little tabby that we got to pet! I am adding a lot of photos to this review so make sure you take a look! I apologize in advance for all of the photos of my dog. Bottom line, if you are looking for the perfect place to camp, definitely go here. We will definitely be back.

This was our first experience on Hipcamp, and it was all around awesome. Morgan's property and hospitality were everything we could have asked for. The camp site was a few minute walk down a well manicured trail, and Morgan provided a wagon to make it easier. The spot we had was under the trees, right on the creek. Though it was a hot weekend (~90 degrees), the shaded campsite was a few degrees cooler, and had a perfect setup with a spot for our tent, a campfire, and a play / wash area for my 4-year old twins at the creek. There was the perfect amount (/lack of) cell reception - just enough to send pretty consistent texts, though we could walk up near the house to make calls as needed. Nighttime was dark, with noises of the babbling brook and wildlife. I was also shocked at the lack of mosquitoes. There were other insects (including fireflies), but we didn't get bit except a couple of times down by the creek. It was the perfect amount of roughing it without having to hike hours into the forest. The kids are already asking to go back.

Jake - you and your kiddos were an absolute delight to have here. I'm so glad they liked it, and want to come back. The cows have arrived, so they might enjoy meeting them on a camping trip in the future. You and your family are welcome here anytime. Thanks for clear and easy communication throughout the booking process and to all three of you for bringing such a kind and playful spirit to the land. Have a wonderful rest of your week.

Staying at Morgan's was a pure delight! My group took the campsite down past the junction of the creeks. The sound of the water throughout the night was so soothing. The tables and bathrooms located close to the parking lot were accessible and convenient. Great stay on a beautiful piece of land :)

This was a great campsite, just far enough to feel like you’re away from it all. Morgan was a wonderful host and shared her favorite site down by the stream. i had the perfect trees to hang a hammock by the creek and flat ground to set my tent up near the fire pit. right behind my camp was a small hill that had a large field of flowers on top after a small walk up hill. my dog and i really enjoyed this site and would love to stay here again. The perfect spot to sit next to the creek by the fire and watch the fireflies in a secluded area. Would definitely recommend.

We camped in a field on Morgan's farm and the whole family enjoyed the experience. The field was spacious, private and beautiful. A great retreat just 30 min from Chapel Hill. Plus Morgan was a fantastic host!
