Deck chairs, a small table and eyelets for slinging a hammock are provided. A short nature trail with small meditation deck, composting pit toilet, kitchen shelter, and fire ring with flip grill round out the camping space. The Southern Appalachians in Western North Carolina is the nature-lovers' playground with hiking, biking, waterfalls, rafting, swimming, lakes, rivers, horseback riding and much more... 

AWD or 4WD is required to get to our campsite. 

Firewood and a fire ring with flip-top grill is provided. 

A kitchen shelter with large counter, sink and composting toilet are yours to use. Foot-pump hand-washing stations in the kitchen and bathroom are provided. Campers must fill the water supply buckets at the spigot. 

One electrical outlet and a spigot with potable water are provided a short, easy walk down the dirt road, within view of the campsite.

A gravel parking area right next to the campsite can easily fit 2 cars, and is cozy for 3-4 cars. 

A mulched, open tent area is provided around the fire-ring with room for at least 4 large tents. Particular tent pads are not designated. The tent area is more communal (ie. each tent does not have it's own secluded, private space.)

A large deck (with a few chairs) next to the parking/tent area looks out onto a southwestern view of the Nantahala Range. The deck has posts with eyelets for a hammock.

A short, steep nature trail along the ridge ends at a small meditation deck with 2 chairs. 

A trash, recycling and composting station is located next to the kitchen shelter. 

A private, enclosed composting toilet with sink and foot-pump hand-washing station is a short walk from the kitchen shelter. Starter toilet paper and soap are provided.

    First, let me say that the description of the site was accurate. The site overlooks the sunset, with a nice viewing deck and a smaller deck up a trail. There is a clean bathroom, a mulched area for tents, and a fire pit. The host was easy to communicate with and fast to respond. The site is a few hundred feet from the nearest house, but private, the houses not being visible from the site. The road up was decent, you will likely want a 4WD or AWD due to one steep gravel section. The locale is quiet except for the occasional rooster on a nearby farm. The place has a good vibe, we would stay there again.
