The vibe at Camping Near Trail of Tears
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Secluded spot with no light pollution. Was perfect for viewing the total eclipse of the sun. Basic camping. Bring your own water. Firewood is for sale, but there are no fire rings. Plenty of space between campsites. Hosts were welcoming. If arriving after dark, The sign for the house is a little hard to read. We had a great time.
Alexis and her family wer lebgreat hosts and went out of their way to make our stay perfect. Arrival was smooth and they took us right to our choice of camp sites. They had wood we could purchase and gave us tips for exploring the area.
Alexis and the property owners really go out of their way to make sure everyone has a good time, be it a tractor ride of the farm, a trip to the nearby burial grounds, or just advice on what's nearby. The sites are flat and clear, and it's a very pretty, quiet part on the edge of the National Forest.
The sites were primitive as advertised, but ideal for camping. Lots of room, lots of choices. The family running the operation were very helpful and super friendly. It was a great experience.
