Anessa and Bo were wonderful and welcoming hosts. They went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time. We saw owls, turtles, deer and turkeys just to name a few. The sunset on top of the Big Hill was spectacular along with the art walk through the woods. We were also fortunate the river level allowed us to paddle. A truly special place that is highly recommended.

Little Wing Hollow offers everything you want and need for an excellent camping experience. Anessa has operated Little Wing Hollow as a retreat and just recently opened it up to Hipcamp. This place is perfect if you like primitive camping and still want the convenience of parking next to your tent. If you prefer to park your vehicle and hike to the campsite, there are spots for that, as well.
You'll find everything here; hike along the Chaplin river, walks in open fields filled with wild flowers, hikes through numerous, well-maintained trails in the woods, play in the river and even rent a kayak!
There is great bird watching if your are quiet on your walks. I saw an owl by the river and a turkey hen on her nest. I didn't see any deer, but on one of my walks I heard a 'snort' from within the woods. Butterflies seem to follow you around and at night, Frisbee Field looks like fireworks are going off from all the lightening bugs. There is an artist trail with unique installations along the trail. The views are incredible; magnificent sunsets, a lazy river flowing by, and bucolic open fields.
It's evident Anessa and Beau have put a lot of love and work into Little Wing Hollow. There are super accommodating and very friendly, but leave you to explore and enjoy. Anessa even provided a copy of a hand drawn map to help navigate all the property has to offer.

Johnson Creek.Short cut through the woods to the top of "Big Hill."It doesn't matter the temperature, you gotta have a fire when camping.You're at the right place.

Primitive camping at it's best. They had a canopy sit up with tables for us to use. The jars of flowers with a bird feather was such a cute touch! Luckily the water was perfect for kayaking. We kayaked several hours the first day and cooked dinner on a little grill they had in a picnic area set up overlooking the kayak launch area where the kids was playing and swimming. There was plenty of firewood on site for a bonfire. There was no ambient light around so it was perfect for stargazing. The following day we went kayaking for a few more hours and then went on a hike. It wasn't an ordinary hike at all. At every turn there was an art exhibit and most were interactive. It was one of the coolest hikes I've ever been on and the kids loved it. I would definitely recommend going and we look forward to coming back in the future. We felt like friends not just guests and they went out of their way to make our stay accommodating. Thank you both for a great weekend and we hope to see you again soon!!

Anessa and Beau have created a wonderful place to get away from it all. There are a few short hiking trails, plenty of river to paddle, and a fantastic view for sunsets and stargazing.

What a grest place to camp. We were kayaking but decided to stay the night after experiencing such a wonderful place.

The view at the top of the hill and the private outdoor shower house alone is worth the $40 camping fee. We set our tent up next to the river and and had a great camping trip.

We were at little wing hollow for 23 hours but it felt like I was away for a week. Check this place out if you truely want to relax and meet some really cool hosts.

I keep coming back; this is my new go to camping location. Why do I keep coming back? It's simple; I find something new each trip, the special touches by the host, the feeling of being far from civilization. Little Wing Hollow has it all!!

The Chaplin River.This little guy stayed with me for a good 5 minutes.Fresh flower arrangements on the picnic tables greeted me on arrival.The sun burning through a hazy morning.
