Brookside camp was great and Emory was a wonderful host! The site was clean and well maintained, and the views of the farm are beautiful!

My husband and I had a great experience staying at Emory’s place. Emory was very gracious as we ended up staying at the wrong campsite although everything was marked. I guess all I can say is our heads were in the clouds due to the excitement of us being there. Our shepherd had a wonderful time being able to roam free in such a spacious site. The nearest campsite was 100+ yards away which made it nice for her to run around without disturbing our camp neighbors. The site itself exceeded our expectations with lots of trees for shade and to hang our hammock. Picnic table and outhouse were a nice bonus to our primitive camping experience.

This is one of my favorite places to camp and I've only spent 3 days there!! The land is in a great location from a camping perspective of being under the trees and it also gives you the ability to camp underneath the stars. The Milky Way was exceptional and it's close to Dinosaur Valley to get your day hiking in. I would love to preference to any future campers: please bring your own firewood and not hack up or chop down the beautiful live oaks there. Save the beautiful and remember to leave the site nicer than you found it :)
I can't wait to go back and camp this place again.

Nice quiet space under a beautiful line of trees. We really appreciate the distance between campgrounds, you feel like you’re out in nature. Adorable armadillos came to visit at night, and the songs of coyotes in the distance was wonderful. Host was very nice; he checked in on us and gave us the lay of the land. The pit toilet was fine. We ended up using it although we brought our own bucket toilet and outhouse tent. Water is available at the barn, if you run out. Also this is a great spot for hammocks. Be prepared for flies; the site is on a working ranch. It was unusually warm, so we cut our trip a night short. We’ll definitely be back when it cools down.

We love staying at Emory’s property, and this was our second happy visit. Part of what makes this place special is that Emory is a kind and welcoming host. Depending on the weather the stream may run a bit low, and after creek-hiking up the way reached out to see if we could move to the new River Rock Campsite due to the swimming hole there having a bit more flow and depth. Emory was more than accommodating, and we spent the next two days floating our cares away. We definitely recommend this listing, and look forward to continuing to come back to enjoy the solitude, peace, and quiet.

Beautiful camp site. I really enjoyed the creek it's perfect for swimming and fishing for panfish. There's a couple of bass in there too. I suggest covering your clothes/camping gear with tick repellent as we noticed some on our stuff right away when we settled down.

This was our second stay on Emory’s property. Both times have been exceptional. Brookside Camp has a great spot tucked in the trees with a short walk to a private section of the river/creek.

Way better than state parks and priced better too!

This was such a great spot! I wanted to try to solo camp with my pup and this was a great first place to do it. I loved the views of the field on one side and the wood & creek on the other. Directions were super easy to follow as well. Highly recommend.
