Camping here was a truly unique experience. There are only 6 RV/Tent sites available, and they are adjacent to the area housing the big cats. The closest site is just a few feet away from the tiger cages. As campers, we had late afternoon and early morning access to the sanctuary area for self-guided tours. The staff was amazingly informative as we watched them feeding the bears and preparing for the day's public tours. The restrooms and showers were clean, but located on the other side of the sanctuary welcome center, a ways away from the campsitea. After the staff went home we walked the grounds, watched a lovely sunset, enjoyed a glass of wine and finally fell asleep listening to the occasional roar of a lion or the chuffing of a nearby tiger. We felt as if we were in a jungle somewhere. This was a memorable experience that we would love to repeat one day. We camped at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in a Motorhome.

It was an amazing experience to camp here. This refuge houses big cats and bears. Our Site Number 1 was located behind tigers Emmy and BamBam. We frequently heard the roaring of lions. We were told we'd see deer and coyotes at night around the campground, too. There are 6 sites and a few tenting sites. There is no TV, cable or internet. Our sewer hookup was located behind our camper instead of the side, but we were only visiting 1 night. Remember, the reason you're camping here is for the experience of camping alongside big cats and bear. The staff here is very nice and informative and you can see they love what they do. We camped at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in a Travel Trailer.
