Places to see near Savage Acres: Camping on Craig
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We had a great time a Savage Acres. The site was large and was private. Plenty of trails and very relaxing. Would stay again! The rain all week before didn't effect the site all that much, and we where still able to get out travel trailer to the site. Great time we will be back.
Great location for hikers
Super friendly and helpful hosts with a beautiful property. The site is nestled back in some trees and a creek running on the other side backing up to a national forest. You have plenty of privacy and uninterrupted views, little to no noise or light pollution. The sites have picnic tables and the hosts can provide trash/recycling receptacles and water if needed.
Walnut bottom bliss
Tucked in the corner of Ned's field, is a secluded spot beneath the Walnut tree. A short trail walk away, and you're dipping your toes in the crystal clear waters of Craig Creek. The evening display of fireflies was spectacular and the bonus of witnessing fireworks, summertime in Craig County is worth the trip. There is plenty of nearby hiking, we choose Dragon's Tooth, passing it on our way out of town. With well provided directions and an overview of activities to do in the area, we had a great visit!
This was our first hipcamp and the bar has been set high. We will definitely be back! Property is beautiful & the hosts were lovely. Ned's place is nearby several great hiking options. Our favorite part was the truly magical swimming hole where we also caught a few trout. The camping spot was shady and we appreciated the fire pit and picnic table.
Near perfect site
Everything about the site was near perfect. The views, the stream, the fire pit, and there was even a table. There was another group camped out across the field, but you could barely hear them. I would definitely stay again.
