Access to an 18 acre lake and use of a canoe and kayaks for fun and fishing is included. A guided tour with an educational discussion of forestry and animal husbandry practices can also be reserved. This camp site is primitive. Potable water is available within a reasonable distance. We hope to have a hot outdoor shower available in the near future.

This location was perfect for those looking to explore trails and open
land. The farm was full of spots to see and places to pitch a tent.
There’s an element of isolation present along the creek, and the wide
open views along the lake provide for a peaceful evening. Alex was an
extremely knowledgable and caring host, who gave me a tour of the area
upon arrival. I would definitely suggest this spot to those seeking a
primitive camping location in the backwoods of South Carolina.

Trees line the edge of the creek, making for perfect hammock areas and shade for hikes.A bridge marking the trail along the creek.Natural rock formations line the path of the creek, making excellent natural chairs or fire-pits.A flat patch among oak trees along the river. An ideal place to pitch a tent.

The creek side campsite is wonderfully secluded. The campsite itself is shaded and there is a creek babbling by just a few yards away. There paths to explore along the creek or you can follow another to a clearing. (where we watched the eclipse!) The owner, Alex, said that this was his favorite camping spot on the property and I can see why. I would highly recommend it.

Alex's Creekside Camp was great! Very, very private and a beautiful location by a stream. He was very helpful showing us around the property and where were great places to set up camp. I would absolutely come stay here again soon!

Alex’s site was just what we were hoping for! He was great at communicating from the get go and the site was as described. We were able to hear the stream throughout the night and the site was very private. I would definitely stay here again.

Creekside camping was fantastic! It doest get better than falling asleep to the sounds of a flowing river. The path along the river is well kept and there are several areas to make camp which is nice. We unknowingly set up in the main access area though and had to take down tent and move some of our setup when another group arrived and needed to get to their site. No biggie and now we know for next time :)
Our host Alex stopped by the first night to tell us about the property and recommended some things to do. We did visit the lake for some kayaking, which is beautiful. Its just a short 5 minute drive from camp. We had hoped to fish but were advised by some locals thar the game warden often comes by to check for licenses. Since none of has one, we decided not to chance it. The following day we explored a lovely trail recommended by Alex that was walking distance from our site. This land is rented by a local hunt club and as it was turkey season, we waited until late afternoon to stay on the safe side and not disturb the hunters .
Overall we had a wonderful experience and it was a perfect escape from quarantine. I will certainly be booking again! Thanks Alex!

Could not say enough good things about this campsite. I'm actually hesitant to rave about it, because we want to keep it as our own camping secret! If you are looking for a complete break from hustle and bustle and wanting to be in a secluded area, this is your spot. We did not have cell service unless we hiked a little ways, but it was nice to not have the distraction. The creek was so lovely to sleep by! Our pup loved exploring and we felt safe letting her go off leash (property owner said this was okay). Beautiful piece of land; we can't wait to come back!

We booked this last minute, literally withing 2 hoyrs of showing up. Alex was a great host, met us and offered us a private little spot in the forest on a creek no one had ever camped at before if we were willing to hike in a little. We jumped at the opportunity, and was not disappointed. Aside from some turkeys, we were completely alone in this beautiful forest. It was perfect. We'll be back
