The vibe at River View Camp
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
One of the best hipcamps we've stayed at so far! If you love animals, you will definitely love it here. The hosts are so welcoming and will bring you along a tour of the MASSIVE property (about 300 acres) and all the animals in their possession. I would recommend to anyone, I am very tempted to go back myself. If you want by the water, the woods, by animals...it's all available to you at one site. There is more than enough space to explore, you could camp here 10 times and not see it all.
We highly recommend staying at J'Lenn's property! We stayed two nights at one of their sites a short walk from the white sand beach. The beach was expansive and beautiful and we were they only ones there! We spent most of our time hiking around the beach and our dog absolutely loved playing in the water. We also got to meet many of J'Lenn's rescue animals and exotic pets, which was amazing! J'Lenn and Jody were so accommodating and kind sharing their land with us. They greeted us when we came in after dark and led us to our campsite, where they had already started a campfire for us! We definitely want to book another stay at this campsite!
River View Camp is awesome, and the hosts are fantastic! You can set up camp on the massive sandy beach, in the woods, or in a pasture! We camped on the beach, and Joe even helped us get a fire going because we arrived at dusk. There's plenty of wildlife, and we were able to hold a baby dear, baby raccoon, and a skunk! They have a lot of brush hogged trails to walk or drive down. They will even come to help pull your Jeep out if you get stuck. The host went above and beyond to make me and my family feel welcome including offering to move a portapotty and trash barrel to our site, offering sunscreen and hotdogs to our kids, and letting my daughter collect and take home fresh eggs! We will be back as often as possible. Camp here.
Oh my goodness, what a lovely place and lovely people. The hosts are so kind, generous and accommodating, and their land is literally hundreds and hundreds (and hundreds!) of acres for exploring. River-front beach, streams and ponds, fields, forest - River View Camp has it all. It would be a great place for large groups -- bring your friends and set up camp in the white sand along the Red River under the stars. The hosts will even rent you things you maybe didn't even know you needed that will make your stay even better -- like a smoker or a 10 x 10 dog kennel, etc. They will do whatever they can to make your family event/weekend get-away absolutely perfect. They have a deep knowledge of the land and have lots of ideas for other outdoor adventures in the area. We can't stop talking about how much fun we had and can't wait to go back.
We loved our stay at River View Camp! The property had a little bit of everything. The front of the property vs the back of the property looked like two completely different worlds. Our dogs LOVED running through the fields, sand, and river and we loved taking a break from the hectic city life.
River View Camp was a breath of fresh air compared to your normal campsite. The amount of land that the hosts have available is amazing and opens lots of options to camping in the woods area to camping right on the beach. The privacy and openness was unreal. We were here over Memorial Day weekend so it was nice being a 20 minute drive away from canoe rental spots and swimming holes on the lake, but being able to come back to this exclusive spot at the end of the day. Thank you J'Lenn and family!
Our host and her family were great. Very nice and very helpful. My girlfriend and I were guided to our site (which they allowed us to camp just about anywhere we wanted on their vast 800 acre plot), offered to bring us just about anything we would need, and pretty much left us to explore and enjoy our time. It was a great little adventure and we had an amazing time. Don't be afraid to get out and pet the goats, horses and pups while you're by the homestead :)
