The lower site was amazing! We were able to have a team meal and carb load before the NICA OH race!

This campsite is a terrific location to access the Baileys mountain biking trails. There is ambience lighting for nighttime fireside sitting. The wood is plentiful for the price. We enjoyed several rides from the campsite between meals! The only downside was the shower was not working for us. It’s always nice to clean up after a ride, but the location is still hard to beat!

Site was east to find and we were welcomed by our gracious host, Ross! The site was large and quiet. We awoke to roosters crowing and fell asleep to the sound of crickets. Great stargazing. Electricity, on site toilet, and an outdoor camp shower were available. The site is close to a large mountain bike trail network so there is great hiking. Went kayaking at Murray’s Landing in Nelsonville (8 minute drive), dinner at Eclipse brewery. The lower site is good for car camping. Upper sites are more secluded and would be good for backpacking in. Will definitely book again!

A wonderful little place to stay, close to the Bailey's trails and all the rest the Athens area has to offer. The cold shower is a game changer during the summertime, the hammocks are the most comfortable I've slept in, and the atmosphere is generally wonderful. Being woke up by the rooster was a nice touch as well. Would recommend for sure.

A great campsite w/ an excellent host. If you are riding Bailey’s trails, this is practically a ride-in/ ride out location. Ross is great to deal with, and his neighbor Deanna is a sweetheart. This will be my default campsite when overnighting at Baileys. Hint- ask Ross about the shower- that made our day! Highly recommended.

What a great find!! My buddies and I planned a trip down to ride the Bailey’s trail system. We booked 2 nights at Ross K’s Baileys Basecamp lower site and completely enjoyed our stay. It was super convenient to many of the trailheads and is a ride in ride out site. We met the owner Ross and he gave us a tour of the newly completed upper sites that are very secluded and serene. We checked out a local brewery called Eclipse one of the nights which has great food and beers. Full bathrooms and showers are currently under construction and we were told they will be finished soon. Highly recommend, I know we will be back soon!!
