The Fall brings new perspectives with the changing colors of nature or gathering around a fire on a cool evening. You can also use the Mountain Camp as home base for the many destinations within an hour of our location, Cumberland Falls, Big South Fork, Big South Fork Scenic Railway, Daniel Boone National Forest, and many more returning home each day to friends, a campfire, and sharing your experiences. We have many trails along the mountain for your private hike. You can also hike or drive to the Cumberland river on our 212 ac property. The Mountain Primitive Camp is private with a gate and gravel road right to your campsite. The campsite is in the forest without the public. You can drive to your tent site. If your looking for a place to relax without anyone else around this is the spot for you. Toilet, trash and camping facilities are not provided at this location. Self-reliance and the solitude of being in a remote area of our forest attracts dispersed campers year round. The Mountain Camp is a haven to many species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and other wildlife including: black bears, deer, bobcats, chipmunks, squirrels, elk, fox, shrews, voles, opossums, skunks, raccoons, rabbits, wild turkeys, woodchucks, songbirds, hawks, owls, eagles, ... Yes you may bring your dog!

We had a fantastic time. Patrick and Angelica were very welcoming. They are excellent hosts. Wildlife is all around and the stars shine bright on their countryside property.

See what happens when you make outrageous decisions? You gain valuable experiences that you’ll never forget. You meet people who are equally or more insane than you, and as a result, you feel inspired to live a more fun and meaningful life. So remember your always welcome up on our mountain with the bears. Thank you for taking the time to post this review.

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.

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)

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!

Photos don’t do the in-person stargazing justice. Amazing!Venus was out - and bright!Spacious campsite

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.
