Rob has a great spot here. Very friendly host with quite the vision for responsible use of a beautiful property. We were the first to arrive for the weekend and got a prime spot by the stream. The roar of the creek washes out any other noise. There was a dog across the way but he didn’t put up much of a fuss. Would definitely stay there again.

This campsite is awesome! The stream is beautiful and the rushing water is perfect to fall asleep to. Rob was very kind and helpful showing me the site and sharing his ideas for his property. Would definitely recommend.

SUCH a sweet spot! Camped for two nights right next to a beautiful rushing stream and drank nothing but fresh spring water from the property. An amazing space located on the backside of a mountain. Will definitely be camping there again the next time I make it out to Pisgah!

Great campsite, right next to the creek. Rob's got a cool property, with a lot to explore. He was flexible with arrival time and available when needed.

This is a nice campground next to the creek. However, details of the property were misleading, significant information (construction on property) not disclosed until we arrived. Owner expected compensation for a small hole from an ember in an old chair he offered for us to use. Probably wouldn’t recommend in the future.
