It's always fun to camp and the woods of WV are always gorgeous. It was a pleasant weekend. I appreciated the lights and the fire pit. However, I'd call the site strange. It's in a neighborhood essentially, so I felt weird about making noise while also getting to experience everyone mowing. There was little space for tents and parking, and exclusively space on uneven gravel for tents. The information I needed about access the toilet wasn't given to me until the next morning at 9am, and the other structure on site seemed, frankly, dangerous. It didn't seem ready for camping.

Quiet street with secluded feel, saw two cars and five deer. Overhead lights create nice ambience and facilities are a nice convenience.

Brandon was great guest. It was easy communicating with him. Everything was left immaculately clean and tidy. He would be welcomed back anytime.

We had a great time camping at this site. The bathroom shed was very nice, and the setup of the firepit was beautiful with nice overhead lighting. Yes it's in a neighborhood with houses around, but especially when it gets dark it still feels private. Evelina was very helpful with quick responses.

Overall I had a good stay, but there were a few things that you should know before staying. You are in a neighborhood and the site is right along side of the road. There was some firewood, but most was to large to use without splitting it with an axe. Also, there was a very very bad smell all night, not sure if it was a dead animal somewhere or a septic tank, but it was bad when the wind blew a certain direction. I think this site is good for $35, just wish it was more secluded.

Response from Evelina, the Host, on October 17th, 2020

Appreciate your feedback! The firewood is actually an extra for our guests, not something that we promise to provide. The foul smell was emanating from a road killed deer laying not on our property. Beyond our control yet we regret for that still. Furthermore, the description on our listing mentions about in a neighborhood. The gravel road is pretty quiet with a few passing vehicles a day - far better than KOA campgrounds or likewise know what we are saying. Again thank you for your feedback.

Great site, not totally remote.

Awesome site! Lots of great amenities. Wish it would have been a bit more remote as there are some houses surrounding it. However, once the sun sets it feels totally remote. Had an overall wonderful time and the host was awesome.

The host has a great setup with wooden furniture, a firepit, and a huge stack of firewood! They even had a place to charge your phone and a set of lights if you need them. We stayes in our tranist van. We backed into the site and were able to enjoy the fire. About 20 mins to Harpers Ferry and the C&O. We are pretty close to the area but wanted a nice getaway.

What we wish we would have known!!

We would probably give this space 3/5 stars. It wasn’t bad by any means, but not what we expected.

A couple things we wish we would have known before booking:

-We thought it was a secluded place but it was literally just off the road. Also, you could see a couple houses from the site and there was nothing blocking to from the road so wasn’t really any privacy at all.

-Although it’s listed as off-leash dog friendly, it really isn’t. Again, you’re right on the road.

-There are three or more GROUPS of dogs surrounding the site that howl and bark nonstop throughout the night. Non. Stop.

-There’s stinging nettle throughout the site so I would recommend bringing some hydrocortisone cream.

Someone mentioned it in an earlier review, but I’ll restate that the road to get there is definitely not small car or motorcycle friendly.

This space is awesome if you’re in the area and we did love staying here. We wish we would have known the above things so that way we could be more prepared and informed ahead of time. We brought firewood just in case, but we did have plenty that they had left at the site!

Response from Evelina, the Host, on November 11th, 2020

Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Regarding the privacy, our listing description clearly mentions that the campsite is located in a rural neighborhood. We strongly believe that this campsite is far more private than those commercialized campgrounds such as KOA and other state parks. There is a smooth, paved roadway to the campsite. Since some maps especially the Google maps does not have the Flop Ear road on their map - that is why we have to use GPS coordinates that lead to the other way around. Urgh! We will need to figure a better way of explaining to our guests what to expect especially those with non-AWD or non-4WD vehicles. We continue to strive to excel in providing accommodations to our guests at our lovely campsite in this idyllic rural neighborhood. Again, thank you for your honest feedback!
