    Tent & Hammock Camping: Family, Group and Pet Friendly

    Above ground platforms, festival style, shaded


    We host tent camping at a unique location on the Dan River. Our tent sites are on a grassy lawn that is shaded and cool most of the day. Our hillside sites are deck-like wooden camping platforms nestled in the rhododendron and mountain laurel.




    • We have fire pits and a supply of firewood for your use. Please do not bring your own firewood, due to potentential hitchhiking invasive species!
    • Picnic tables, grills, a sink and a few electrical outlets are available. Our outlets are shared and intended for quick things like a recharge or inflating a mattress…not running your home away from home.

    • We’ve also got yard games like horse shoes, bocce ball and washers.


    Tubing the Dan River at Jessup Mill, small groups, big fun.

    River Tubing

    Upper Dan River Tubing: mild to adventurous, 30 minutes to all day

    Comfortable tubes on a fun but approachable cool water run


    For our basic tubing run, you don't even need to shuttle, just bring your river shoes and sunscreen. We don't have a school bus and we don't rent cooler tubes, so things tend to be more peaceful here.

    Anglers: Trout, Smallmouth Bass & Catfish in your closest mountains 

    Easy access at the bridge or dam, no charge, donations welcome


    Jessup Mill is at the Eastern end of NC Wildlife Commission stocked trout waters. We also raise and release or own trout under NC permits. We appreciate a catch and release and leave no trace attitude on these clean mountain waters with free access from private property.
