Very remote. No cell service which is exactly what I wanted! Thanks to Patrick for the peace and quiet I was looking for to relax and recharge.

I was traveling through Texas with a travel trailer. I wanted a night in the deep woods. I certainly found that here. Patrick was friendly and made sure we had what we needed.

Patrick was a great host. The area had just gone through a huge flood from all the rain causing the pond to overflow and wash out all the sites. Patrick made sure we still had a space to camp outside of the flood zone though and our group had an amazing time. We will definitely be back! It is a really beautiful location. It's quiet and secluded. No signal out there so be sure to get your directions written down before you go out and enjoy the technology detox.

Patrick’s Blackwoods camping retreat was exactly what we were looking for in a weekend getaway! It is truly a hidden gem and a good way to be totally secluded in nature. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to just chill out and not worry about being around other people while camping. The stars were also beautiful. Definitely will be back in the future!

I had a wonderful time camping on Patrick’s property. He was responsive to text, communicated clearly, and not to mention he gifted me with a peach sapling on the way out!

The place is as described: primitive camping. My dog enjoyed running around the meadow and splashing in the shallow pond. I will definitely return to Patrick’s property next time I need an escape!

Extremely helpful and kind host that gave us privacy. Secluded, rustic and primitive place in forest, but had clearing with pond and incredible view of night sky. Quiet, peaceful day and night - right off /with close access to forrest roads for hiking. Had rock fire ring with adjustable iron grate for cooking that made so easy. We even bought one from him because he mentioned he made them. He supplied us with pine fire starters, too! We plan on going back for sure. Would be a place to go with friends and they’d be close by with own sites, but still have privacy and not see others. Loved it. First time primitive campers with truck shell and tent hook up.

I really enjoyed my two nights at the Backwoods Camping Retreat. It is surrounded by pine forests and secluded. Cell service is a no-go, so that made contacting the Patrick (host) a challenge on my way in. Directions to the site could be improved with turn-by-turn directions - again, lack of cell service makes finding camp tougher than it should be. The provided fire ring was a great help, and the location was beautiful and wooded. Love me some East Texas!
