Relaxing area. Beautiful scenery. Lake. Outdoor activities. Hiking & biking trails. Campsites. Fishing.

If you love everything outdoors, Camp Hydaway is the place for you! You can do almost any activity you can think of here. The only downside is that it is now owned by Liberty University, so you must be either a student there or accompanied by one to use any of their gear or equipment. However, you can bring you own to use.

The main attraction is the lake where you can swim, fish, paddle board, kayak, or just hang out on the beach. There are also miles and miles of exploring to do with over 20 trails around the area that you can hike or bike on. There is also what is called "Hammock Haven" which an area set up specifically for your hammock so you can do some relaxing. A new addition is there dedicated campsites with tables and fire pits. The area is so scenic and a great place to get some good photos too. It's a great place to spend the day relaxing or adventuring out a little!

I have been a few times with friends and family and I always enjoy it. The trail we walk isn’t to difficult but we always get a good workout and there are some great views.

The activities were super fun, but the water was absolutely freezing. It honestly sucks all the air out of you, which didn't necessarily ruin the fun for me but it definitely didn't help anything either. Also, one piece bathing suits are required, since it's part of Liberty and the one piece bathing suit rule is enforced.

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.

Winter Hike to Calypso Cascades

While most people go snowshoeing near the Bear Lake or Glacier Gorge area in RMNP, Wild Basin is a much less trafficked option.
