Such a cool and interesting place to stay! Host is very welcoming and so passionate about the surrounding forest. He showed me which trees can be used for medical purposes and even made me a cup of “swamp tea!” I also saw a very large Heron fishing early in the morning, and the sandbar on the river is quiet and peaceful as well.

Jeff and Renata were super friendly! They were very good about making sure my boyfriend and I felt settled and comfortable. The place was super pretty, and there were lots of fish in the swamp for fishing! The stars were gorgeous at night as well. Just don’t forget to bring loads of bug spray for the mosquitos!

Staying on Jeff’s beautiful land was the perfect weekend getaway! He was a great host and provided us with firewood & helped us with anything we needed, brought us a fire ring and gave great directions to his property. Just a quick drive from Charleston and you feel like in the middle of nowhere. Our site was dry and just next to beautiful marsh and a quick walk from the Edisto. Our host even offered to let us use his kayaks. Great people! I definitely recommend staying here and will be back soon!

This was our first experience with Hipcamp and it was great! Jeff was so helpful. He even helped us back up our new trailer since we haven't gotten that skill down. We had a great secluded spot near the river. Couldn't beat the price.

Swamp Castle exceeded my expectations! This was my first HipCamp experience (and first big RV road trip) and I was so thankful for Jeff and Reanta's warm welcome. Jeff's love of the land and the nature around him really shines and I learned so much about the swamp life, the trees around me and the unique habitat. I felt super safe and even got to learn about more about RV life with their help. It felt great to feel refreshed and hit the road again with the wind in my sails! Thank you Jeff and Renata!

We ended up needing to move on, and didn’t stay in the end... but the land was beautiful and I hope to return some day.

What an experience! Jeff helped me out at every turn, he was generous and engaging in the best ways, showed me around and shared some stories of the land, not to mention a few songs on his harmonica. Swamp castle has A really unique landscape, This place truly lives up to its name, it’s an excellent camp spot.

Jeff’s place was a magical swamp land. We arrived in the evening and Jeff kindly greeted us to direct us to our campsite. We really enjoyed talking with him and hearing about his ideas for his HipCamp. I only wish we could have stayed longer to explore the nearby waterways!

Jeff was the most kind, friendly and attentive host for our group of 10! He made us feel SO welcome and offered to help us in any way he could, including accommodating my handicapped friend and bringing us items we didn't have. His property is beautiful and exactly what we wanted- scenic, remote, and primitive! The highlight of our trip was the walking tour he gave us down to the Edisto river and all the interesting information he provided us. Don't make the same mistake we did-- get down to the river and hang out there well before 7pm! We had an absolutely perfect stay for my 35th birthday and will most certainly be back again soon!
