I thoroughly enjoyed my time here and Christine did a great job as host. The property here is beautiful with plenty of space in the woods to setup camp. You'll definitely want to make the short hike down the the creek to cool off. If you're up for a bit more of an adventure you can hike up the creek to their own private waterfall. I would definitely stay here again if I'm in the area.

The clearings are plenty big enough to accommodate whatever setup you like.Talk a walk up the creek to head towards the private waterfall.The clearings are plenty big enough to accommodate whatever setup you like.The creeks are perfect for exploring on a hot day to cool off.

We really enjoyed our experience! Christine was easy to communicate with as we planned our trip. When we got there, she and her husband were very nice and gave us thorough information about the property, etc., which is beautiful. Our hosts were just a text away but we had total privacy the whole time. Looking forward to going out to this spot again!

Christine was very welcoming and informative about the area! She even gave us a heads up about incoming inclement weather which was a total lifesaver. Loved the entire experience, and would absolutely return for another stay

Pro tip: camp by the creek if you can!

We traveled out to Christine's property for the 2017 Solar Eclipse and it was above and beyond. Christine and her family are the perfect hosts — providing maps of the property and making sure we could find our way to our camping spot. Their property is a dream — a private spot with grassy pastures perfect for star gazing, creeks to swim, and even a little waterfall. And nearby, you'll find some of the best state parks and nature that Tennessee has to offer. We couldn't be more thankful to them for sharing their property with us.

This was my first Hipcamp experience and it did not disappoint. Christine and family were absolutely wonderful hosts and my camping buddy and I decided that if we are ever reincarnated we want to come back as their wonderful dog Emdo. Christine helped us find a perfect campsite, the creek was fantastic and a shower in the waterfall was just the thing after a sweaty day in the sun. If you have the chance to stay here don't hesitate, I have done a ton of camping in my life and this is one of my favorite places to camp.

I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay at for the 2017 eclipse. The property is beautiful with a small waterfall, a beautiful creek, and tons of options for camping. The family was wonderful! They took the time to make sure we found the property and even helped show us the campsite since we arrived after dark. Christine and David were very attentive and helped us find the best local places to stop by. We hadn't been able to purchase eclipse glasses, but they had planned ahead and had pairs for all of their guests! I had a wonderful time here and highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great place to camp.

Absolutely stunning. This property is like a mini-national park. The creek and waterfall photos they post are from the property not a nearby park. Far from roads and civilization; no buildings, barns, or houses are visible from the camping areas. We could drive to the campsites (field conditions were ideal) in a minivan. Sites were cleared and spacious. You can choose between shaded forest or sunny meadow sites. Trails and roads were well maintained. Hiking down "Cattle Bone Alley" leads you to a crystal clear creek fed by springs. We floated this on our thermarests whenever we got too hot. You can also forage for "indian money" and arrowheads along the banks. Two creeks on the property have spectacular waterfalls. Our kids spent the day wading the creeks pursuing minnows, crayfish, toads, frogs, and salamanders. They do not allow ground fires, but you can rent fire pits from them and firewood was stacked along the road. They also offered coffee delivery in the morning. Very kind people run this place. Rules are very reasonable. A short drive to vinyards, breweries, parks, and regional art galleries.

We had a great time staying here. The hosts were super friendly and helpful plus they offered coffee for the morning! The property itself is amazing. We were able to hike and swim just like described. The pictures didn't do justice to how nice it really is. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants a good experience!
