Such a hidden gem.

We originally stayed July 2020. Cute and well-maintained little spot in the forest! Charles was a gracious, personable host and met us on-site. He told us the history of the land, and gave us the rundown of all things Bluegill. We met his dog, Lily, who is a sweetie pie. There are plenty of spots for hammocking, and a clean, level clearing for a tent with enough room to park our vehicle. Charles gave us the VIP treatment and brought down a couple solar powered fans, which were all the difference after sundown and the breeze completely stopped. Kitty Cove was secluded, but you'll definitely want to bring a tarp or umbrella because there isn't much shade cover. There are two little islands you can swim or kayak to from Kitty Cove. Bennett Cove was perfect for star-gazing, but admittedly a little less secluded. You get a wide view of the sky, and if you're lucky like we were, you'll see meteor fireball shoot completely across the sky. If you get bothered by the boats on the water, the stars are gorgeous from the clearing on the campsite.

UPDATE as of April 2022

If you're in the area, this is such a wonderful hidden gem. We went back after an unfortunate backpacking trip, and Charles accommodated us last minute. He says campers have all but disappeared the past few months. He has a new camp toilet, and more designated spaces around Bluegill Hill. He's really put a lot of love and hard work into the land, it's hard to see it go unloved by campers. It really is a wonderful place to relax by the river and escape from the busier campgrounds.
