Welcome to Moccasin Bend Campsite at Plentiful Hill!

Several generations ago, this spot on the property was nicknamed “Moccasin Bend” in homage to the famous peninsula in Chattanooga...the similarities are stunning. :D Less than an hour from Nashville, this site is for people who really want an “away from everything” camping experience. While Moccasin Bend is right off the Big Loop Trail, it is far from the road and activities of the homeplace; for most people, this campsite will probably feel pretty isolated. (**Check out our other campsites for other options.**)

Accessing Moccasin Bend requires crossing two small creek crossings and driving off road on a *mostly* flat path for about a half mile. Decent vehicle clearance is a must for the creek crossings, and 4x4 during the rainy season (usually late fall, winter, early spring) is essential. Moccasin Bend is a large, shaded site surrounded by trees. The seasonal creek runs the length of the site which provides lots of opportunities for exploration. There is instant access to the Big Loop Trail and a short walk to the Buckeye Hill Trail. A field at the base of Buckeye Hill provides an open sky for stargazing.

Moccasin Bend is perfect for up to two vehicles and three tents, but message us with questions for other accommodations and we might can make it work.

At the site:

  • Rock firepit with campfire grill 
  • Circular picnic table with attached benches (seats 6 adults)
  • Hung hammock
  • Toilet bucket with privacy tent if requested (must provide own liners and pack out waste)
  • Small wash basin
  • Property/trail maps

To note:

  • **Ticks and chiggers will want to love on ya during the spring/summer/fall.  Make sure to bring plenty of bug spray and be prepared to do “tick checks” throughout the day.**
  • Cell service is spotty
  • Access to Moccasin Bend requires a vehicle with good ground clearance and 4x4 is essential in muddy conditions.
  • Don’t worry if you hear the occasional gunshot from neighboring properties; that’s common down in the country, especially during hunting season.
  • Our farm dogs are alert through the night, so you may hear some barking up the hill.
  • This site is very private and away from visible civilization.
  • All trash and waste MUST be packed out.
  • Dogs are welcome and must not bother the horses or goats. Please pick up and dispose of waste.

We’ve developed and are continually maintaining miles of trails across the 375 acres at Plentiful Hill. Some of the trails are wide and open and give you great access to the beautiful pastures. Other trails are narrow and twist through the unendingly interesting woods. All trails have names and are identified with signs and posted maps. The terrain varies from flat and open to hilly and wooded.

**A 140-acre portion of our property is reserved for our Sniffspot visitors (reservation-only dog hiking).  If it is open for you to use during your visit, we'll be sure to let you know!

Bring your bike to tour around the local country roads or try your hand at riding off-road on our trails. The roads and trails are great for runners too, so plan to get your exercise in while you visit!

The Town of Chapel Hill is 10 minutes away and has two Dollar Generals, a small grocery store, some restaurants, a laundry mat, and a few boutique shops...enough to satisfy all your needs while visiting!  A complete list of local attractions is available at our campsites.

Henry Horton State Park is 15 minutes south of us, and it has several playgrounds, trails, an outdoor pool in the summer, and access to the Duck River. We’re less than 30 minutes from Spring Hill and Lewisburg, less than 40 minutes from Franklin and Murfreesboro, and, surprisingly, less than 50 minutes from downtown Nashville.

About Plentiful Hill

We are proud of our wild homeplace and love sharing its beauty and peacefulness with others! Plentiful Hill is 375 rolling acres of beautiful woods and spacious open fields on the northern outskirts of Chapel Hill, TN. It has a pond, several cedar glades, marked hiking trails, an historic family cemetery, a seasonal creek, a variety of wildlife, and Buckeye Ridge, elevation 1,112 feet. The anchor of the property, our white, two-story farmhouse, was built in 1812.

Three generations live on, love, and actively use this land. On any given day, someone in our family will invariably be riding a horse, taking a Gator ride, running/hiking the trails, or out working on property tasks. Every effort will be made to avoid your campsite area during your visit.

Plentiful Hill is a wild place. We aim to make it accessible and enjoyable to visitors, but we ultimately submit to the inescapable power, beauty, and essence of nature. Please anticipate and prepare for normal outdoor issues including bug bites, snake encounters, and severe weather.

These are difficult times for a lot of folks, and we want our property to be a safe and inviting place for people of all backgrounds. It's important to us that people of color, those in the LGBTQ+ community, and anyone else who might sometimes feel unwelcome in outdoor spaces feel especially comfortable and accepted while staying with us.

We stayed 2 nights at Corinna's and it was one of the best hipcamps I ever been. The nicest people are running this place and it was great to meet and have the chance to stay on there camp grounds.. nice little drive into the site and private from the other camp spots. I would definitely come back again and recommend everyone to stay here..

My other half and I found this to be exactly what we were looking for. Peaceful and tranquil, complete solitude, even though there was another set of campers when first coming in. Never heard or saw them. This spot is so beautiful. It's shady and has plenty of room. I love all the thoughtfulness that is put into their land for others to enjoy as well. Woods and fields with wonderful spots to sit and enjoy your view. We didn't have enough time here and cannot wait to visit again and bring our kids. Thank you for sharing this beauty with others!

This was our second stay at Plentiful Hills Farm, and our first at the Moccasin Bend site. We loved the seclusion of the site, and the quick walk to our favorite part of the property: a gorgeous stretch of field that lit up with fireflies in the tall grass. Absolutely magical!
