Huuuuuge boulder fields with a pretty much endless amount of potential. Some bolted routes are also already established. Lot's of options for different difficulties. Relatively unexplored boulder field in the area, but it probably won't stay that way when more people find out about it. A guide would be nice, but I assume that will also come with time. There are also a significant amount of trails on the property leading to different bouldering options, though they were a bit hard to follow at times with all the downed leaves. Camp site was standard grassy area, until we noticed a huge flat rock that was just wide enough for our backpacking tent. Wouldn't recommend that spot without sleeping pads or after a few drinks, though. Property had absolutely unbelievable views almost all the way to Chattanooga. Owner was great to work with. Overall, a great space for exploring and climbing.

Killer natural tent platform. Just wide enough for our tent. That's a slack line running above for those with the gift of balance (something I was definitely not given).First standard tent site--near a big fire ring. The mushroom formation peeks its head out in the bottom right.We spent a long time trying to figure out a way up this one without ropes, and by we, I mean Jacob.Yoga and epic views. What more could you ask for?

Hey Blake! Thanks for the feedback and great to hear y’all had a good time. There is a guide book scheduled to come out in the beginning of 2018 with all sorts of info describing the boulders. We hope to have y’all out again soon! -Christian

This place is phenomenal. So is Christian, the owner. Its under development right now, but totally camp-able and worth going this season. I can't say enough about how great this place is and how great its going to be!

Amazing experience! The owners are great and super helpful. The view is incredible, the climbing seems endless, and the camping spots are laid out well. Could not recommend this place more!

It was great. Beautiful area, lots of hiking and climbing around. Great host and very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Plus when we had a little trouble getting the fire started Christian helped us out. Highly recommend this place. I will definitely be coming back a lot to climb!!!

Loved the site. Beautiful view. Well maintained. Do not follow the latitude and longitude given on the site, it takes you to a sketch area. Look up the site and go to the address. Would totally recommend. And will return for sure.

My daughter had a really good time, enjoying the overlook, hiking, and surprised by the disc golf holes there. Firewood was easy to access and the campgrounds were well maintained. Definitely would come back.

It was an incredible view, Christian was quite hospitable even with the late hour and booking that we had made. We only had one night to spend on our way back to Florida and I can't imagine a better scenic view or accommodations to have spent than at Dogwood.

Dogwood Climbing is an amazing spot! Oh the views! Christian and his family are warm and welcoming. The site is clean and the atmosphere relaxed. There are a ton of things to do, but we spent the weekend decompressing and watching the stars. Can't wait to get back.
