--------------Due to Covid19 shutdown this is only available for families who already live together. ----------------------------------This space is a nice shaded area that is more than 50% bordered Burnett and private to the rest of the property. Some vehicles may not be able to drive to this area and will need to park approx 50yards away. There is a small fire pit with rocks. Many trees are suitable for Hammock camping in this area. Can accommodate approx 4-5 ground tents.----------------------------------

A four acre plot bordered by Burnett Creek. You will pass by the multiple creekside, primitive camping spots that are shaded by trees to get to the group area tucked privately in by the creek. Our meadow of thriving wildflowers and makes a communal space to meet fellow campers - If you want. From the meadow to the creek, life swarms all around. Bees, Butterfly Bush, Milkweed, Otters and more enrich the environment. Potable water and a shared portable bathroom are on site.  

The site itself is an easy distance to Downtown Knoxville and an even easier access to all that South Knox's Urban Wilderness has to offer. It uniquely offers a hint of back country camping without the 25 mile hike in, a great way to test the waters for primitive camping or a an easy stop close to the city for a seasoned traveller. 🦋 🐛 🌈 🚲 ⛺️Best suited for off-road vehicle, bike, tent, and hammock camping without the frills of a KOA.

Site was great, creek was great. Being so close to the creek we did get a little gnat and mosquito activity.

Firewood was low when we got there, Kat brought some over very quickly and we were good for the weekend.

We are hammock campers and were able to get 5 hammocks hung at the site. 6 would have been difficult.

This site was great there are several places to choose from along the creek. I booked this family site not knowing they had primative sites along the creek also on Hipcamp.

This was great spot for a staycation! The site is pretty much surrounded by a creek on three sides, and the privacy it provides is lovely. The creek isn't really one that you can get it, but its gentle babble was the perfect backdrop for falling asleep. The portapotty was clean and supplied with toilet paper and hand sanitizer. Kat made sure we had firewood and answered all of my tedious questions with patience to spare. We had room for three tents and a tailgating tent with plenty of room.

The large ditch the host describes in the listing is legit. You have to drive across to get to the site. I have a Subaru Crosstrek and it slightly scraped as I traversed it as did the other vehicles in our group which were proper SUVs. It's certainly doable, but be prepared, and if you have a hitch, you might take it off! Thanks again for a relaxing weekend!

Check in was easy and the creek made for a peaceful evening. The road to the back sites dips very sharply and most vehicles would bottom out going through. Our Toyota Tacoma has a hitch bike rack and while the truck was fine, the rack scraped and jarred causing one of the bikes to burp the air out of its tire and come off the rack. When leaving we had to leave the rack up and carry the bikes past the dip to avoid issues.

We stayed in the group site. It was so perfect. A nice canopy of trees. Surrounded on two wide by a babbling brook. If babbling brooks are not your thing you should avoid because this is one babbling brook. There were a couple of make shift benches as well as picnic table, the site is level. if it has rained recently I would bring stray or plastic as the is one area slow to drive. There is a ditch one must cross to get to site that my provide difficulty for your garden variety passenger car. Wonderful spot close to the Urban Wilderness trails with a trailhead just a short bike ride away. I live in Knoxville and this will be a regular get away! Cheers

Loved the campsite, was private and enjoyed the creek nearby. Port-o-potty was clean. Nice new picnic table.
