If you prefer to be closer to the farm and animals than the river, you can pitch your tent on the perimeter of the center. This spectacular area of rural rolling hills is considered the foothills of Appalachia is mostly farm country. 

The best spot for tent camping on this 5 acre property is in the vegetable garden which is fenced and inaccessible from the donkeys. Gives you a clear view of the sky and some shade in the day. If you want wifi, this listing is the best option versus a bit more digital detox On The Buffalo listings. You'll be able to unload about 50 ft from the site and park nearby but not next to your vehicle.

Enjoy the daily cycle of activity at this farm stay environment. The roosters and donkeys in their routines based on the sun. Please inquire about all access to the Buffalo River and transport add on for drop off of your kayak or canoe up river approx 5 or 10 min will give you a half or full day of lazy river in untamed mid-south Tennessee.

If interested in activities at the retreat center such as add-on creative workshops from collage to clay, as well as purchase of farm fresh eggs or produce from the gardens.Working on a bathroom with shower (cold water only) and washing machine space along with a kitchenette to refrigerate a small amount of items that would be about 200-300 ft walk.

**KAYAK RENTAL OR TRANSPORT SERVICE**Based on availability you may want to rent kayaks for up to 6 people. This includes transport to one of two spots up river. The first is called Texas Bottoms and is about a 3 hr float unless you fish or lollygag. The second. Grinder's Creek is about 10 minute drive and approximately 8 hrs which requires getting out at Texas Bottoms and walking across the street due to the low bridge. (TDOT will be renovating in 2021). $30/person for Texas Bottoms. $40/person for Grinder's Creek.Transport service available for up to 6 people and your own kayaks to drop in OR one person drive back to your vehicle - reservations required.

Incredible experience. Options for everyone and anyone - private, open pastures or camp in a beautiful garden. We set up in a sweet yard area, complete with chairs accommodated by our amazing host Val. Val also runs a sweet creative retreat throughout the year, and so we enjoyed her creative spaces and donkeys roaming! So peaceful. Quiet everywhere.

We didn’t really know what to expect but we stayed by the bluff. There should be a statement on the site that if you want to stay by the bluff a large truck will not make it back there, we had a 4-door Ford and it almost didn’t make it. Once there though it was very quiet and we took a short hike down to the water.
