Good stay and good value

This is a great stay for anyone looking for a quick retreat from the city and want to hang out around a campfire with nature nearby. If you’re looking for the GREAT outdoors, it might not be the best place for you as there is a somewhat busy boat launch across the river (keep in mind it was Memorial Day weekend during our trip) and a smaller two-lane highway bridge front and center in your view. For us, we knew this ahead of time and it is definitely not a deal breaker for folks who don’t need complete isolation. Nothing to complain about the campsite - it’s a basic, easygoing site with a campfire next to the river where you can hang a hammock next to the tree and relax with friends/family. Basically bring your own everything, it looks like there used to be a table set up but has since broke down and there was a good amount of firewood provided but you might want to bring a bit more just to be safe.

Miles, we are so glad you had a good experience on the Blackwater. We also appreciate your patience during a busy holiday weekend, as the boat traffic does go up a bit. Please come back again soon!

We had a great time camping here for a short overnight trip in the Spring. The site is fairly level, has some dead fall around for firewoodol but sughest bringing a feew logs of your own, and the river has some good fishing.

The site is kind of close to a pretty well traveled road, so there is a good bit of vehicle noise through the night. It also has a good bit of marsh/swamp surrounding it so I suspect its pretty buggy over the Summer.

awesome private site on the river bank! The bridge takes away from privacy a little but we didn't find that to be a problem at all. there's some exploring to be done in nearby woods, but we wary of hunters as we heard lots of gunshots during our stay. thank you!!

This is one of those hidden gems. Bring your kayak, canoe, and fishing gear, or just sit on the bank and enjoy. We really like this place, and will be returning soon, and often. One thing that would be helpful for anyone pulling in with a camper, cut some of the lower hanging branches in the drive.

The road coming In, looking back out from the campsite. Blackwater Camping and FishingA great place to spend some time with a tent, or smaller camper.Perfect place to sit in the evening and fish from the bank as the sun goes down.

Beautiful spot! We enjoyed our stay. Heads up: The bridge is close so you can hear cars drive by. It didn’t bother us because we expected it. Also, there’s a boat ramp directly across the river where people were constantly taking their boats in and out and fishing near the camp sight. No one was rude but it wasn’t super private because of that. Overall, would camp there again!

very cozy spot; it was a bit smaller than I expected but that wasn't the fault of the site. I will definitely book again. Great fishing spot
