Had a fantastic two days and a night here. Hosts were welcoming and gave background on the area and leads on some good local hikes. The camping area itself was easily accessible with our RWD vehicle and it was clean, well made, and unobstructed. Animals were curious about visitors and friendly (especially the llamas and goats). The communal prep area was helpful for storing food before we cooked and I enjoyed resting the the rocking chair and looking out over the pasture. The grill (charcoal/wood) and fire pit we used worked perfectly for our needs (steamed/heated dishes in aluminum foil pouches). Highly recommend and intent to visit again.

Beautiful space to be in, fields and forests, big sky views without city lights, remote, great hosts, thoughtful amenities, Llamas, Alpacas-and goats (we were lucky to see fresh born baby goats) campfires, hikes... also paddling, hiking and mountain biking in the nearby National Forest, and a short drive to Lake Strom Thurmond (= Clark’s Hill Lake)...we’ll be back!!

This stay was a pleasant surprise for us. The photos do not do it justice. The alpacas, goats, rabbits and resident cat are all well taken care of and well loved. We were blessed enough to stay while there were baby goats there, too! Our kids had an absolute blast! We also enjoyed the tour that Mickey took us on of their organic farm. We set up camp near the accomodating cozy house and bathroom - which was a wonderful and clean bathroom. We watched a beautiful sunset and slept under the stars after making smores around the firepit. My husband and I took a romantic evening hike along the private creek. We wished we could have stayed longer and will definitely be back!
