Hipcamper Shayna

Our stay at Emory's ranch was absolutely incredible. The campsite was private and secluded, and had a well built fire ring, picnic table, and composting toilet. The giant pecan trees provided perfect shade all throughout the hot Texas summer day. We had the opportunity to get a tour of the ranch and all the incredible ingenuitive systems Emory has created. It was truly a magical weekend completely secluded and away from everything; incredible views of starry night skies and refreshing swims in the crystal clear creek. We already can't wait until we get the opportunity to come back!

Hipcamper Drew

Brookside was a very good campsite for our group of 3. It had a great view of the entire property and sat nestled at the edge of the woods. The swimming hole was a short walk from the campsite and there were trails that followed the creek and the field. Fishing was actually decent and we managed to catch a lot of fish. I would reccomend this campsite!

Hipcamper Mary

We really enjoyed our stay! We would definitely go back. The dogs loved swimming in the river. It's a great spot and not far from Dallas.

Hipcamper Dustin

We had a great time camping at Brookside Camp! Emory met us when we arrived and showed us around, which was great! The camp is extremely secluded and felt like we were miles away from anyone else. The swimming hole is just a short walk from the the campsite making the summer Texas heat very comfortable. The hole was full of fish! It was also a perfect spot for our dog to run free and enjoy nature! I highly recommend this spot. We will definitely be back!

Hipcamper Michelle

The site was beautiful! It is located in a cow pasture, so watch out - there will be lots of poop and lots of noise. They're a vocal bunch, and they liked to walk through the camp site to the stream, both day and night.

Hipcamper Linda

There were 3 sites which were pretty equal. We saw all three and were told we were at the wrong site but could stay at any of the 3. There was a pit toilet that was a bucket over a hole inside a wooden enclosure which we expected. However, the bucket was of poor quality and broke the 2nd day. The online photos and description showed a creek deep enough for swimming and fishing. Instead, it was very disappointing with low water level and the water that was there was stagnant. I certainly wouldn't feel comfortable getting in what was there. We expected rustic, but didn't feel the description and photos matched what we received. We would never go back or recommend to anyone else.

Hipcamper Ian

We had a great time on the property. It was great to let the dogs run around and not worry about them disturbing other campers.

Hipcamper Mark

Awesome spot. The fishing was great and the spot was beautiful. Close enough to tolar if you forget anything. Accommodating host. Will be back
