A secluded spot  on a small homestead near Copper Creek, a tributary of the Clinch River--one of the most biologically diverse riparian ecosystems in the country.

Wake to a rooster's crowing and watch free-ranging chickens and guinea fowl foraging while listening to their fascinating chatter. Campers may use a primitive shelter up on the hill, or a tent site by a small stream. The property is surrounded by steeply sloping woods with abundant wildlife.  Birds, butterflies and dragonflies abound, as well as many species of reptiles and amphibians. Some birds that appear to breed in the vicinity include scarlet tanager, northern parula and hooded warblers, yellow-billed cuckoo and red-shouldered hawk. You will likely spot a hummingbird or kingfisher on the property (in season), and may very well hear a barred or screech owl at night.

Nearby is a great spot to cool off under a little waterfall in the creek--kind of a natural whirlpool bath, with enough water to swim a little. While wading in the creek, be sure and hunt for mussel, clam and snail shells in this protected area, recently rebuilt by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. I don't fish, but I hear there are some decent-sized gar in the bottom of the creek, and people are often fishing near the bridge about a mile up the road.

Area attractions include Natural Tunnel State Park, The Carter Family Fold and the Grey Fossil Site. Tubing, canoeing and kayaking available on the Clinch River in nearby St. Paul. 

If you're looking for a quiet, secluded spot close to nature, this is your campsite!
