Off the grid, out of the way, rustic 10 acres where you can pitch a tent, take a hike and enjoy a campfire.  Mostly wooded with nearby sites to explore, a few swings for fun and a fantastically cold mountain creek for cooling off.  

The property is part of a community, which you may notice on the way to the campsite.

What an awesome campsite! Thank you for sharing it. We had an amazing time. We stayed Mother’s Day weekend. We had 2 sites. Combined we had 4 adults and 5 kids (ages 1-7). We all loved exploring the creek, rocks, fishing and fun.
Jeannette warned us ahead about the ticks so we were able to prepare. This is a very remote location, which was perfect for us. We appreciated the ability to let the kids run and be loud without disturbing other campers. We loved fishing (caught a huge catfish!) and playing in the creek. We will definitely we back!

So happy you all had a great time! It really makes us happy to be able to share The Land with others. We are working on the ticks and the population is slowly dwindling. Thanks for your review!

Our family (two adults and 8yo) really needed to camp but we were worried about staying near others. This place was perfect! Directions were spot on and so easy to follow. There was a very flat, cleared area for our tent with paths to outhouse (with TP), swings, and old cabin. The swings provided so much fun for our daughter. The old cabin was full of surprises - a covered area to cook during rain, and then we found the bucket of art supplies and origami paper and my daughter loved everything even more. Lots of trees to put up hammocks. We didn’t make it to the blue hole because the path was overgrown. Although it was just the three of us, my daughter kept talking about how fun it would be with a couple of families, and I agree. Apparently someone else had booked the other campsite but we think they were no shows because we never saw them. We were warned about the ticks, but they are really rough - I would suggest going to your local outdoor store and getting everything they have to combat them. Besides that, it was an amazing, much-needed, peaceful weekend.

Old cabin in middle of campsite. So many surprises!Art station in cabin So. Much. Fun!

We are so happy you guys had a great time! We have since worked on clearing the path to the blue hole so we hope you come back to experience it, because it is definitely worth the hike. We have also put in a new trail that takes you to some of the cool rocks on the property. Hope you'll come back soon!

We had lots of fun! There was plenty of space to set up. It was exactly what we were looking for. We’ve haven’t been able to camp at all this year due most campsites being closed. We hope to come back some time! We did get a late start and the spot is kind of hard to find in the dark.

We had a wonderful stay at The Land with a friend of ours and our 6 month old. We weren't quite expecting to find a small community way out in this remote location, but it added to the charm and intrigue of the place. There were some hunting dogs barking here and there, and ATV's going by, but all in all it was remarkably quiet and peaceful, which was exactly what we were hoping for. If you're there in the spring or summer, make sure that you pack some bug spray. There were no mosquitos for us, but we did end up with a lot of ticks on us, especially when we ventured down to the lower part of the property.

I would definitely recommend this spot, and we'll probably be back in the future!

Glad you all had a good time! Yes, the Flat Top community is cool! We have since communicated more clearly with our neighbors about our Hipcamp listing. Seems prior to this our neighbors were coming by often to see what was going on; we all keep an eye out for each other. We have been working towards lessening the tick population by putting in more trails, burning and cutting back brush, planting mint and we are considering putting some chickens out there! We hope you'll be back soon.

Nice spot for a short getaway from home. Based on the road to get there (glad we had a high-clearance vehicle!) we would have thought it would have been less "busy", but there were quite a few pickups and 4-wheelers that zipped past the campsite. The few folks we interacted with smiled and seemed to not mind we were there, but one fellow (Jim) was a bit more intrusive when we first got there. But he finally left us alone, and overall the camp out was very nice.

The property where the camping happens is pretty close the (aforementioned more busy that we would have expected) road, but generally nice. There is a run-down building that has a nice porch with tables and games, but we were not really interested in that. The "facilities" are very rustic but perfectly functional. The "Swings" part of the property was very nice, and we had a great place to pitch the tent, have a nice little fire, and relax.

The trail to the Blue Hole was not bad and the Blue Hole itself deserted - just how we like it!

There is a warning about ticks, and boy they aren't kidding! They were tiny and they were numerous, but we didn't let them bother us - use some good tick repellent if you have a problem with them.

Next time we may reserve both sites, as our experience (wanting to get away from everyone) would not have been as good if other campers had shown up. Inexpensive enough to do be worth it if you want as much privacy as possible; we were glad nobody showed up while we were there.

For our first Hip Camp experience, we're calling this a success and have some others on our list to try out. After dark it was pretty much us and the whip-poor-wills and the coyotes. It was great!

Glad you guys enjoyed yourselves; thanks for the review! We have since communicated more clearly with our neighbors about our Hipcamp listing. We think our neighbors were concerned and driving by often to see what was going on....we have always watched out for each other up there. Now that it is clear we are allowing campers, the traffic has slowed down. So, thanks for letting us know. We have also added a nice new trail that takes you around the whole lower half of the property and connects back to the top. It takes you by some of the cooler rocks on the property. We have also worked on clearing the trail to the blue hole as well as removing some junk. Also, on the list has been lessening the tick population and I believe we are making some headway. We hope you'll camp at The Land again soon!

This was our best camping weekend to date! Jeannette's place had everything we were looking for. It was very private and secluded. We have 3 boys ages 9yrs, 4yrs and 9 months. This spot was very private. We were the only ones there. There is a small vacant shack with a porch area with seating and chairs where we cooked. Several fire pits. Three tree swings which our boys enjoyed. A creek about 100 yards away and a 'blue hole' swim spot down the trail maybe 3/4 mile. There was no water on site, as advertised, but an outhouse with TP was available. The road to the site was a bit rough with the last 15 or so minutes on a gravel road with bedrock. Would certainly recommend an SUV or Truck. Jeannette was easy to communicate with. We will certainly be back and we recommend the site.

Thank you for the review; we are so delighted you all had a great time. Since you guys have been there we have added two proper camp sites, with flat spots for tents and fire rings with signage. We have also cleared the trail to the blue hole and added a trail that takes you down and around the lower half of the property. We have also removed some junk, added some art supplies and games and are slowly diminishing the tick population. We hope you'll camp at The Land again soon!
