A four acre plot bordered by Burnett Creek. We have multiple creekside, primitive camping spots that are shaded by trees, and adaptable to multiple groups. Our fire pit is carved out in the center of a 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 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 van, car, bike, tent, and hammock camping without the frills of a KOA. During the busy season there are a handful of bookings for this area and in the offseason usually more one at a time. Bookings are for 2 people each to keep it from feeling crowded. If you have more than 2 you will need to book multiple sites.

This was a great camp site! Definitely primitive, but we love that. The best thing is that it sits right off a quaint little road beside a creek, but it’s also very convenient to Knoxville. Kat was a wonderful host.

This was a wonderful little hideaway right next to a beautiful flowing creek.

Nice creek lined with trees and a large open meadow. Fire pit was good. There was also a load of firewood to use as well. Would stay again.

We only stayed one night but we spent a lovely evening camp-cooking and gazing at the fire and the fireflies around us. Although it’s a basic site, Kay had clearly done a lot of work to make the field perfect for us to set our tent - she had mowed a large circle . However, most of the the meadow was left untouched and so we were surrounded by beautiful nature from all sides

We got to the campsite which was not maintained. We didn’t even know if that was the correct campsite. I called Kate and left a message to call us back ASAP. Never heard back from her. I paid for firewood. I didn’t see any at the campsite which was over grown with weeds. There was s pill of old wet wood. On the website it looked like it was kept up. Since she never called or texted back we left. No way were we staying there. Lost money on that. Never again. Such a shame because we love to camp. Waste of time!!!!

Camped here 3 days. Came down to mountain bike the Urban Wilderness trails. Water source and portable bathroom were both like new. The camp is beautiful and peaceful. One caveat: the entire front meadow is full of poison ivy. There is always some in a primitive camp like this, but there was an awful lot everywhere, so be careful. I did see an otter swimming in the stream, so that was pretty cool.

If you keep your eyes open, you may spot otters in the stream. Pretty cool.
