Sleep amongst a variety of wild and weird creature sculptures in a campsite like no other.  A secluded hilltop property on 5 acres of trees, an easy 20 minute drive to Nashville. We have great sunsets up here on the hill, a peaceful little dead-end road.  The campsite is at corner of our property, tucked just out of sight of our house a couple hundred feet away.  You can even schedule a relaxing pottery lesson with Rebecca!  Or get a painted wood cutout version of your favorite creatures from Brett!  (see extras and message us for availability)

Stay in our camper, a 1963 Shasta, remodeled by us.  We removed all of the old broken camper stuff and it is now a simple, colorful room inside, with a full size bed and some fun funky art from our collection.  Enjoy an old VHS movie on the little tv, or some classic cassettes in the tape recorder.  

The accomodations are minimal but functional.  There's electricity, lights and outlets for charging etc.  There's a cooler, fan, a electric cooktop, electric teapot, and mini-fridge. Also some cookware and dishes, and press-pot for coffee. Cook up some dinner on the propane grill outside. There is no indoor plumbing, but a large water jug and bucket for washing up, as well as a container for drinking water (we will provide 2 gallons of fresh drinking water in a glass containter upon arrival but you will be on your own after that)  Well-water is available at a spigot near the camper. An air conditioner is available to keep you cool, and a space heater to warm you up. There's a firepit just outside with plenty of places to sit. Firewood is available for sale from us (see extras).   

The equally wild and weird outhouse and outdoor shower (with on demand hot water!) is just a few steps down hill in the trees. T.P. and soap included.  You can buy supplies and food at a big-box store just a few minutes down the road. There are plenty of places to hike etc out this way, our favorites are Beaman Park, Bells Bend Park, and the Bi-Centennial Bicycle Trail in Ashland City.

Well-behaved pets are allowed but please keep them leashed. Be sure to give us a heads up to let us know what furry friends will be joining you :)

*** WINTER NOTE--- During the winter months, depending on the weather, the shower and outdoor spigot may not be available due to freezing temps. we will try to keep it available as long as possible.

What a wonderful little spot !!!! Ultimate privacy surrounded by colorful creations. Super intentional interiors that let your mind wander and creativity brew. Cozy with all the perks. Outdoor shower + outhouse are out of this world! Essentials were all very accessible and the added touches made it an extra special experience. ✨

Such a cool spot! The shower and outhouse set-up was out of this world. Everything, from the creatures to the coffee cups, was intentional and unique. We made a fire, grilled out and listened to classic cassettes when we were relaxing in the camper. I'd go back just for the outdoor shower overlooking acres of lush trees alone! We followed their recommendations (composed in a handy guide) for coffee, hiking and lunch and were not disappointed. We also took a ceramics lesson with Rebecca before heading out of town, highly recommend it :) Thanks to Rebecca and Brett for this cozy experience.

We loved this spot. The Creatures outside and some unique art pieces in the trailer enhance the rustic experience. The outdoor shower with hot water is a great amenity to have while “roughing” it. Bells Bend Park is a beautiful place to hike. There’s a Kroger’s about 20 minutes away. Loved our Lil Shasta trailer!

You have everything you need here at Creature Camp! Water, electricity, and a handful of funky friends!

This spot is perfect for when you want to get away but don't want to go too far; isolated enough to get some deep thinking done, but close enough to the city if you want to grab a quesadilla.

The compostable toilet honestly changed my life, and I'm sad to have returned home to my water-guzzling version of this amenity!! Thank you Brett and Rebecca for fostering the beautiful simplicity of life, hope to visit again soon!

No detail overlooked! No matter where you sit or wander there is something to discover. Besides the obvious, large incredible sculptures, there are little artistic and curious touches to satiate the mind no matter where you sit or lay. A little vile of scented oil for after you shower, a random AM radio station to listen to while you stare at the ceiling, a book on ESP, or beautiful pottery and art hanging throughout the camper.... Literally every surface has been touched and cared for by its artistic owners.

We brought our two children to celebrate their 1 and 2 year birthdays and will remember this trip fondly for years. Left feeling inspired and energized!

Cozy, eclectic, and wonderfully accommodating, Brett and Rebecca have built a treasure here! We had a blast taking pics with all their zany statues and roasting marshmallows around the campfire before heading to bed in that fantastic little camper. Could not recommend this spot more!
