Pitch a tent here and enjoy the waters of a rare (for our area) spring fed creek. Waters full of life and often quite clear will welcome you into nature and provide hours of entertainment just "Being". In the evenings enjoy your dinner around a camp fire above the waters in a private secluded little wooded retreat, complete with wood burning hot tub and pizza oven. Enjoy

Enjoy some art work made with explosives and steel as you eat cheese, drink wine and catch some rays.

UPDATE: 5/15/20  If you want fresh vegetables, eggs and fruit from our garden please let me know.  Our son Max is selling from his little farm. 

UPATE:  The address is 1186 and I think GPS is taking people TOO FAR.  Please text me 30 minutes before arrival so I can meet you.

Update 4/20/20 Camp is still open as this is an exclusive camp and no other guests (other than you) are allowed in.  We practice social distancing when checking you in.

  The Kelly that Kelly's Korner is named after is selling wood for the camp fires.  $ 8.00 per bundle at the camp.

Also if you need help starting a fire, Kelly will come and start the fire for you, no charge :)

Inspired by his love of nature and his affinity for hot springs, Matt (the host) crafted this camp as a labor of love in order to share a unique experience with every single guest. Every aspect of his property from the pizza oven (currently in repair) to the kayaks to the wood fired hot tub is geared towards taking it down a few notches and enjoying a slower pace of life. Matt has designed an experience for his guests, not just a campsite, where you can slow down, recharge, and truly enjoy just being in nature.

The boats are meant for one but there's just enough room for a friend (provided it's a dog). The wood-fired hot tub in all its glory. Morning camp essentials.Paddling down stream.

Such a relaxing weekend! Our favorite things about Kelley's Korner are the total privacy, and the thoughtful layout. There are lots of places to make a fire, pitch a tent, or lounge around. Even on a hot day, it somehow feels 20 degrees cooler at this spot. Lots of "glamping" details like the wood burning hot tub and wood fired pizza oven, both of which we used and had fun getting to work. The paddle board and treehouse were off limits, but the kayaks were available and the creek was fun to navigate. Fair warning, there is an impressive variety and amount of insects at this site. So bring bug spray, and embrace their presence! Lots of wildlife too. Expect to have to clean some of it out of the tub before use.. but hey.. you're camping and it's part of the adventure. We felt very welcomed by Gina, who greeted us with her sweet smiling baby and made sure we had everything we needed. We hope to be back soon one day at this super chill, unique spot. Would recommend to absolutely anyone.

Me and 8 of my bestfriends came to Matt's property to camp for the first three days of spring break and had an amazing time! The weather was not in our favor but we made the best of it and had a ton of fun! The property itself is beautiful and seemingly perfectly layed out with the treehouse, hot tub, pizza oven, fire pit, kayaks and paddleboards, and river. The owner, Matt, was extremely helpful and kind to us the entire time. He knew everything there was to know about the property and the land. We could all tell he takes a lot of pride and puts a lot of work into not only this property, but all of his properties, and it truly shows. Overall i would absolutely recommend this campsite to anyone & would camp here again!

We came to this magical little place to celebrate an early Valentines day. It does not disappoint. Very private, well maintained and the owners are just delightful.

One of the greatest experiences I have ever had. Five of my friends and I stayed at Matt B's land for a weekend friend reunion and did not spend a minute bored. We set up camp, kayaked across the creek, took a dip in the hot tub, explored the surrounding areas, and of course roasted marshmallows! Unfortunately, we didn't get to take advantage of the pizza oven. Matt is extremely friendly - he welcomed each of our 3 cars, even though we arrived at separate times in the night! He even provided us with some thermite to help start our fire. Don't hesitate to book Matt's land if you're looking for a great time- we hope to be back soon!

10/10 recommend Privet Creek! A beautiful and secluded oasis, this site was so fun and perfect for a weekend away with friends!! It even has kayaks and a stand up paddle board, as well as a wood fired hot tub and pizza oven. Every detail is well thought out and we had an absolute blast :) Matt the host is very welcoming, and has some beautiful property that he is kind enough to share.
