The land was awesome! Very private spot with about a 5-10 mins walk to the bathrooms. Bathrooms were very nice and clean. A lot of daddy long legs and hills. Owner was very accommodating and nice. We loved this spot and are excited to go again. Also it rained a lot but the trees covered most of it so we still had a great time!

Went tent camping and had a great time! The site was very secluded, a short walk up a hill from the parking area. Kieth was very helpful in driving up our supplies. There was a nice covered area for firewood and the camp site was very spacious amongst the trees. The bathroom and shower are near the parking area and were clean. Kieth was very response and helpful and was a friendly host.

We really enjoyed our time at Benton’s on the Baileys. We got the best of both worlds of car camping and primitive camping. The site provides a secluded, primitive experience, but you don’t have to worry about hiking your gear to the top of the hill because Keith- who was an attentive host- was there to haul up our gear and keep us stoked with wood. Great having nice, clean bathrooms near the parking area too. Would recommend and will probably be back some day. Thanks Keith!

Fantastic! The host was there and ready to help us bring our stuff to and from the campsite with a UTV. (Up a giant, steep, gravelly hill)

Camp site was great for tents and hammocks. Plenty of firewood and they even offered farm fresh eggs for breakfast. Would definitely stay again :)

Had a great time camping with my wife and 2 kids. Keith is a great host and the site was absolutely perfect! Very private and secluded. The grade of the site and the canopy of trees kept us nice and dry despite 12 hours straight of hard rain. Everything dried out quickly after the rain. The firewood stayed completely dry due to a MUCH appreciated shingled firewood rack. We used a Jeep rooftop tent and annex, and had plenty of room for activities during the rain. The kids think the setup is basically a giant bunk bed. 😜

This is an amazing location, especially if you're into hiking or mountain biking. We hiked to the Knight's Labor trail and took it to the Corps trail, then Tipple Top trail, and looped back down to W Bailey Rd. It was a 5 mile hike, which was just enough to tire out our 8 and 6-year-olds. I'd really love to come back here with the mountain bikes. Nice loops that looked like they'd be fun, but not too treacherous. Also was great to see that the trails are well cared for. We passed about 6 Appalachian Conservation Corps workers on the trail digging drainage trenches.

Would highly recommend, and we hope to come back again!
