Cob House Homestead

1 site · RV, Tent40 acres · Hamitlon, AL
Our hectare of land is a genuine Space of Love, acting as a tether between our physical bodies, our ethereal bodies, our ancestors, our descendants, the Earth and God. This land will be our life's work, a culmination of our most intentional efforts to bring health and happiness to our family in perpetuity. We moved our family here from Chicago in 2012 to put roots down on land that has been in the family for over 100 years. We will live here forever. We we were featured on HGTV's "You Live in What?!" as our family of four lived in a bus for 2 years while we became acquainted with the overgrown piece of land . We welcome the collaboration and cooperation of other individuals and families who wish to gain experience in natural, earthen, and sustainable home building and permaculture. Our intention in offering a place for people to stay is to provide a unique experience in natural building techniques and to meet our tribe. Our combined family land is 40 acres, but our official campsite that we are offering is 2.5 acres, with 20 acres of wild, 20yr-growth forest with paths and a 10' deep creek rain runoff ditch which is great for walking down and exploring. This is a fantastic place to look for medicinal herbs as we have many, to include elderberry, boneset, staghorn sumac, pokeweed, mimosa trees, mimosa pudica, tulip poplars, passionflower (Maypop), persimmons, groundcherries, huckleberries, beauty berries, "possum" grapes, muscadine grapes, wild cherry trees, black walnut, honey suckle, Japanese privet, wild lettuce, sassafras trees, plantain, dragon flower, Japaness Angelica trees, and blackberries to name a few. In the Autumn one can forage for bolete mushrooms. Chanterelles grow all summer and puffball mushrooms are found easily most of the year. We also keep bees in a horizontal hive.Learn more about this land:Come alone or with your whole family and gain experience building a home using a very old method of earthen construction; cob. The hands-on cob workshop is optional, of course, but this is clearly our uniqueness. We can get you and your whole group stomping in the mud and building a wall that will stand for generations.Children 11 and under do not count towards the guest count.Enjoy watching the shenanigans of our goats, dogs, cats and chickens as you work and play on our homestead. Children are warmly welcomed and catered to. Our designated campsites will accommodate tents exclusively at this time and are enveloped in semi-wild young forest, on a patch of regularly cleared pasture-like turf. The evenings are filled with a loud orchestra of tree- frogs and crickets, as well as the occasional coyote calls, dog howls, owl songs, and my favorite; Chuck-Wills-Widow call. Up to 6 tents may be set up on this one patch of earth, but we will only book one group or party at a time. Our area of Alabama, and our area of county, in particular, does harbor poison ivy, various snakes, raccoons, fox, armadillos, opossums, and other nocturnal wanderers. We have a total of 6 dogs that help us to feel guarded and secure against wood-boogers and four-legged rascals.  We can give you a grill or there is a fire pit both at your tent site, as well as near our cabin. Your campsite is private, and somewhat secluded, though it is only 500 feet from our cabin. A communal outhouse, constructed of cob- is the designated latrine. The nearest hospital is 15 minutes away, as well as your most common commercial conveniences.

The best camping near Tishomingo State Park guide

Overview

About

Some of Mississippi’s best camping is found in the scenic foothills of the Appalachian Mountains at Tishomingo State Park. This area is filled with natural beauty and is guaranteed to spark an outdoor adventure. Tishomingo offers ample hiking trails through a unique landscape of massive rock formations and fern-filled crevices found nowhere else in the state. When not exploring the jaw-dropping trails, visitors can enjoy canoeing, swimming, disc golf, fishing, boating, and even rock climbing! There's no shortage of activities to fill you with a natural high at this place! And the camping is something to write home about.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Tishomingo State Park is during spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural scenery is at its peak. Summer brings warmth perfect for water activities, though it can be crowded. Winters are quiet but can be chilly, so pack accordingly.

Know before you go

  • Check weather conditions before your visit to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
  • Be aware of park hours, typically from 8:30am to 5pm, and plan your activities within this timeframe.
  • Wear appropriate footwear for hiking on uneven terrain and bring plenty of water to stay hydrated.
  • Stay informed about any trail closures or area restrictions during your visit.
  • Facilities such as restrooms and picnic areas are available, but it's wise to bring necessary supplies in case they are busy.
