This site offers a one of a kind wilderness experience!  This is camping the way I personally enjoy it; Situated on over 300 acres of pine and hardwood forest, the property has over 1.5 miles of trails to explore by hiking or mountain biking and over one mile of creek frontage.  You may forget that you are in the Piedmont region as the beautiful rapids from two creeks and mountainous terrain with abundant mountain laurel will take your mind to the mountains.  This property is conveniently within 30 minutes of Greenville, Simpsonville and Anderson.  There is a large sandy bottomed portion of the creek adjacent to the camping area which is the perfect place to cool off on warm days.  

I have participated with Hipcamp with several other listings for several years.  This particular camp site is brand new as of May 18, 2020 and there are limited reviews as a result.  Please see my other listings, Creekside Camp and Lakeside Camp in the Honea Path, South Carolina area and the reviews of those to get an idea of how our campers enjoy our wilderness experience.

Excellent campsite, private and peaceful, very clean and well maintained, sleeping next the flowing river was amazing. Alex was a great host and communicated very easily. Just a heads up follow his directions specifically and you’ll have no issue finding the site. The hike up and down from the parking area can be a bit cumbersome so pack appropriately.

This was are 2nd time staying here and just like the 1st time my wife and I and our 2 kids loved it. This campsite is very private and relaxing. Besides just relaxing we did some hiking, fishing, and some swimming/tubing. We highly recommend this site and most definitely will stay again in the future

This was a fantastic site for camping! Quite a few ants but what can you expect from an area with wet soil? The creek was absolutely beautiful and nice to swim in.

Great secluded primitive camp site. Enjoyed the time beside the creek and exploring. Easy to follow directions.

Parking and the beginning of the descent to the site. Trees for hammocks.

Everything about this trip was exceptional! The site was beautiful - private and right on the water. Alex’s communication was quick and efficient. This will be our go-to spot for all future camping trips!

This was the perfect little spot for our camping trip! Our 5 year old had a blast exploring the river and the location was flat, secluded, and everything we wanted. We will definitely be back!
