The host has a great setup with wooden furniture, a firepit, and a huge stack of firewood! They even had a place to charge your phone and a set of lights if you need them. We stayes in our tranist van. We backed into the site and were able to enjoy the fire. About 20 mins to Harpers Ferry and the C&O. We are pretty close to the area but wanted a nice getaway.

Great site, not totally remote.

Awesome site! Lots of great amenities. Wish it would have been a bit more remote as there are some houses surrounding it. However, once the sun sets it feels totally remote. Had an overall wonderful time and the host was awesome.

Overall I had a good stay, but there were a few things that you should know before staying. You are in a neighborhood and the site is right along side of the road. There was some firewood, but most was to large to use without splitting it with an axe. Also, there was a very very bad smell all night, not sure if it was a dead animal somewhere or a septic tank, but it was bad when the wind blew a certain direction. I think this site is good for $35, just wish it was more secluded.

Appreciate your feedback! The firewood is actually an extra for our guests, not something that we promise to provide. The foul smell was emanating from a road killed deer laying not on our property. Beyond our control yet we regret for that still. Furthermore, the description on our listing mentions about in a neighborhood. The gravel road is pretty quiet with a few passing vehicles a day - far better than KOA campgrounds or likewise know what we are saying. Again thank you for your feedback.

The directions to the site were lacking the essential information that there is a series of very steep and very loose gravel roads that lead to the site. We were on motorcycles and that info would have been good to know going in... Once you get to the site it’s nothing but a gravel lot on the side of the road, there’s no where to pitch more than one tent, and the fire pit had a dirty diaper in it. As soon as we got there a neighbor came down the hill from across the creek (which is barely a trickle) and screamed at us for having headlamps on as we were trying to get settled in after dark. It did not feel safe, it did not feel welcoming. 0 stars.

We are deeply regretful for your not so great experience at our campsite. We have taken your feedback to full consideration and actually took steps to avoid the same mistakes.

It is a nice site tucked away in a very spread out neighborhood. Had plenty of privacy and we were not bothered by anyone. Very y’all trees surround you so you have a decent amount of shade throughout the day. Very nice get away spot.

We enjoyed staying at the Creekside camp area! My favorite part was the enchanting lights in the fire pit area. Super cozy and relaxing to sit by the fire and chat with friends. Having the amenities provided helped make the camping experience easier. Having the bench and tables were a plus! The surrounding area is great, not a far drive to the river for tubing and other historic attractions. Cute town. We will stay again the next time we are in town!

We camped with our travel trailer! The area was well shaded and provided relief even during the heat of the day. The electrical hook ups, site amenities like table and benches, and toilet made our stay easy. Our daughter loved exploring and playing in the stream or on and across the bridge. The site is close to harpers ferry and tubing! Would stay again.

What we wish we would have known!!

We would probably give this space 3/5 stars. It wasn’t bad by any means, but not what we expected.

A couple things we wish we would have known before booking:

-We thought it was a secluded place but it was literally just off the road. Also, you could see a couple houses from the site and there was nothing blocking to from the road so wasn’t really any privacy at all.

-Although it’s listed as off-leash dog friendly, it really isn’t. Again, you’re right on the road.

-There are three or more GROUPS of dogs surrounding the site that howl and bark nonstop throughout the night. Non. Stop.

-There’s stinging nettle throughout the site so I would recommend bringing some hydrocortisone cream.

Someone mentioned it in an earlier review, but I’ll restate that the road to get there is definitely not small car or motorcycle friendly.

This space is awesome if you’re in the area and we did love staying here. We wish we would have known the above things so that way we could be more prepared and informed ahead of time. We brought firewood just in case, but we did have plenty that they had left at the site!
