Seeking solitude? they've got it!
Patrick is a very caring and considerate host. Primitive site was extremely private and I had a locked gate so didn't have to worry about anything. Level lots under cover are a little scarce but I managed to find a great tent site and stayed dry for the most part as it rained most of my stay. Very peaceful, wildlife encounters were nice, and bugs were minimal up on the mountain aways from the river.
Amazing primitive mountain camping
We absolutely loved our experience at Patrick’s Point. We stayed in the Primitive Mountain Camp spot, and were the only ones on the mountain. We camped in two locations - on the trail the first night, and on top of the mountain the second (per the host’s suggestion). The top of the mountain was absolutely gorgeous. It featured a clear, flat area bordered by trees with changing leaves on all sides. We were so glad to have taken that recommendation!
The hosts own 200+ acres of mountain land, which includes several trails on location for use. On the primitive mountain site, we were given the key to the locked gate. We were safe and secure inside, and were able to let our well-trained dog run off leash since we were the only people on that property. Our pup loved the freedom to roam as we were camping and exploring the trails.
The hosts had a vast knowledge of the local area and have several dog-friendly hiking recommendations within the National Forest with accurate directions. He also suggested we stop by a nearby Mennonite farm and USDA meat locker if we were to need food during our stay. I loved the focus on increasing local commerce and tourism.
We loved this camping spot and will certainly return! There is so much hiking and exploring to be done on the property, we can’t wait to come back and see new areas of the land. Such a gorgeous location hosted by the kindest people. If you’re the kind of person who loves primitive camping, being secluded in nature (in a safe, secure location)
Spacious mountain campsite
Host was very welcoming. He showed us where to launch our kayaks near the barn and then drove us up to the mountain campsite. We were at the very top and it was such an excellent spot! Stargazing up there was spectacular. Highly recommend!
Clean, private behind gate
Hosts were very nice, had a couple of great conversations! Was led to our site, behind a locked gate, by a four wheeler. Clean and private area.
We stayed three nights on the mystery trail camp site. Throughout our whole stay everyone was very helpful and informative about how to get places and where to go if we needed anything. There was no shortage of a feeling of welcomeness and we felt very comfortable coming to ask questions or to ask for help after locking our keys in the car. The grounds were beautiful as short hikes showed the beauty of the rolling hills, and with the Cumberland falls not far away we would absolutely recommend any of our friends and family to go to Patrick’s Point for a secluded relaxing camping trip.
