Located next to the spot where the original settlers chose to build their new life, Richardson Creek Campsite is ideally located under trees just a short walk to the river. Fire pit, picnic table, pit outhouse, potable water (100 yards away by barn) make your stay more enjoyable. Come spend a weekend under the trees and relaxing creek-side! 

Note: Please NO glass containers, shooting, or ATVs/dirtbikes at campsite. This is a pack it in, pack it out location. Please take trash with you and leave site clean. Also, no loud music at any time and dark time is quiet time.  Thank you!

Note:  There are currently three campsites on the property (Brookside, Ancient Oaks, and Richardson Creek).  From Richardson Creek campsite Ancient Oaks campsite is about 150 yards away.  There are trees between the two sites so each has privacy, but I put it in here just to let everyone know.

Emory has created a wonderful campsite. Great access to the creek and a beautiful spot. I’ve stayed here twice and had an amazing time both times. Such a great host! Helped get our cars unstuck from the rain.

10/10 site with a beautiful creek directly behind! Easy to find and had everything we needed close by.

We stayed here to be close to Dinosaur Valley State Park, which we wanted to take our 2 little boys to. The state park campsites are always full on weekends I guess, but I think we ended up with a better spot at EcoRich at the Richardson Creek campground! It was just beautiful land, with nice trees and a very short trail down to the creek with the perfect rocks for skipping. Our kids and dog had the time of their lives wading in the creek. Emory’s directions were very precise and accurate and made it easy to find. We didn’t see another soul while we were there (which was why it was probably WAY better than camping at the state park), it was so secluded/quiet/private. The one con I would mention is that when we went (mid-May) there seemed to be a mosquito haven nearby in a trough- there were swarms of them, but luckily we brought plenty of bug spray and escaped mostly unscathed, and they left us alone eventually. So I’d say bug spray is a definite must!

Our dog Misty loved the creek just down the hill from our campsite.

This is our second time staying on Emory's property, different camp site last time but just as amazing as the first time. All sites were booked but you really can't hear much from the neighboring camps. Well kept and lots of nature! One of our favorite places to camp!

Our stay was awesome. The site had everything we needed. We loved camping near the friendly cows, having the privacy of being the only campers, and a toilet/water nearby. We are planning our 2nd trip already. I would highly recommend.

As always, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! This time we stayed at Richardsons Creek and the campsite was just perfect. Lots of trees, plenty of birdwatching and a gorgeous sunset!

Wonderful first experience. Emory checked on us and explained how to get the available drinking water. Also that we could wander down the creek, which was fun for our 7 yr old. Nice cleared campsite with fire ring, picnic table and pit toilet. Good access to creek, but wasn't actually visible from site. But this could be good during mosquito season. The site fenced in on 3 sides which could help keep children in and wildlife out. We did have a bunny come straight through camp. We heard wild hogs and coyote at night and saw a raccoon swimming in the creek one evening. We camped in March so we didn't see snakes or poison ivy. We could see signs of clearing of thorny vines, but know it could easily take over by end of summer. The road to drive in wasn't bad for our car and we came the day after a huge rain storm. We saw the other 3 sites and they are equally as good. We were aware of people at the next site and could hear random children's scream from 2 sites away. Better than state park. We will be returning.

Our stay was great. We weren’t really sure what to expect when we drove in, but it was a perfect little private location. The host stopped by to make sure we were good and then left us alone for the remainder of the time. The creek along the backside of the site was a fun place to ‘adventure’ with my kiddo and he loved the livestock that stopped by in the morning to say hello. Overall we were pleased and would highly recommend this site.
