Overall a really nice place to camp! Several of the sites are very close proximity to one another so if you are looking for more privacy I recommend arriving early! Nice view of the stars at night and view of the lake. I would not recommend swimming in the lake as its fairly stagnant. Definitely take a trip to the distillery if you have the chance as well!
Dean & his wife are AMAZING. GREAT people, BEAUTIFUL camping, and just some good ol' southern hospitality. We were so blown away with everything that we decided on the spot to stay another night! We orginally were going to stay up at the Hole but when we arrived Dean & Dana informed us that he had several other spots down nese the huge creek on his property and we decided to stay there instead! Dean has a variety of locations to stay within his property and so I definitely recommend contacting him first to see what all your options are! They supplied us with a ton of firewood for a low price (more than you would get at any store) and even had a printed out list of great hiking destinations which we took advantage of. All I can say is, we will definitely be back!
Great stay, great location, great hospitality! Phil was there to greet us on arrival, pointed to his huge open field, and said have at it! A massive open field atop a hill that yields to an amazing view of the stars. Phil supplied us with free firewood and everything! There were restrooms and a shower available at our disposal at the bottom of the hill accessible with just a quick 30 second drive to the bottom. Will be back!
The experience was nice! The campsite was shared with 2 other groups with plenty of space so that it never felt crowded. There was potable water available from a well, it was a little cloudy due to clay but as long as you boil it, you're good. I will say that the best view, and the one advertised, is at the point of the camping space, so if you want to claim it, it would behoove you to arrive early! Great view of some stars too!
No words. Layna & her property were absolutey incredible. Seriously. I would live there, forever. I didn't want to leave! I loved it so much that I actually left 3 hours behind the schedule I had made for myself just so I could hangout a little longer. Thank you so much Layna, I will be back!
Brewster & Elizabeth are incredible hosts! They're super kind and caring and make sure you have everything you need! The bathroom next to the sites has running water and there is also a propane grill with a side burner to boil water or make any meals. The view from the campsite itself is beautiful and you can even hear the river down in the canyon below which made it very easy to get some rest. Their address was very easy to find & I would absolutely stay with them again!
