Hammond house description

The River Camp is a beautiful 4 BR 3 Bath home on the Tickfaw River! It can sleep 8 people and is ideal for couples, families and small groups!

Our Camp on the River sits on a beautiful bluff, overlooks the scenic Tickfaw River, and is a great summer or winter get-away!

Some of the fun activities you can enjoy is fishing, canoeing, swimming, tubing, bike riding.....have a fish fry, shoot pool, roast hot dogs/marshmellows at the outdoor fire-pit, or enjoy a bbq! .

In addition, a variety of wildlife can be seen depending on the season. If you are a bird watcher, you will be in heaven! However, you may want to just relax on one of our decks that overlook the river, sleep on a hammock, rest on the swing, or read while sitting in one of the rocking chairs.

- Please note that we are located at the smaller, upper end of the Tickfaw river, making motorboats non-accessible

The camp is equipped with DVD (Blue Ray) player, wireless internet, board games, pool table, jacuzzi tub in the master bath, 2 canoes, bbq pit, outdoor fire pit, indoor fireplace, and two flat screen televisions.
