Returned to our Roots

My husband and I started our camping life with Bear Den in 2004 and we decided to come back in our own camper this time. The roads in are very narrow and winding. There were some pretty hairy parts coming in. Thankfully we made it without too many issues. Our site had some great views but mostly because the other sites were empty. The sites are very close together but if the foliage was filled in it would likely not seem as close.

The weather was extremely cold and we ended up losing our heat so had to cut the trip short but we had a nice time otherwise. We will definitely be back if we have more time. The hassle of getting in and out of the campground and each space isn’t something we want to do for a weekend trip.

It Worked For Us in a Pinch

My parents were visiting from LA and we decided to visit my niece at App State. We needed 2 spots close together and Flintlock was able to accommodate. They had 2 drive thru sites for us. My husband is pretty new to pulling our camper so we thought drive thru would be better but even those were tight to turn in and get out. The sites were so close we couldn't even put out our awnings!

The staff was friendly but when we arrived the office attendant was more worried about chit chatting with someone else we were not given proper directions into the site so ended up backing in anyway.

The wifi was useless even to just look up attraction info in the area, took 2 minutes to look up a phone number to order in dinner.

The drive into/out of the campground is on a main drive and on a hill which makes it difficult leaving.

For experienced campers this may be okay but I wouldn't recommend for novice campers. Also if you plan to sit outside don't expect any privacy.

We likely won't be back to this location.

Quiet, Spacious, and Well Maintained

We had a wonderful week with Up the Creek guests and staff. The grounds are well maintained and staff is visible and around when you need them! The guests were all very friendly and courteous! There were a lot of dog walkers, bike riders, kids playing, and guests relaxing outside. The feeling of community and laid back atmosphere made this trip exceptional! I would highly recommend this campground and will certainly be back!
