Unless you’re camping in the wilderness harpooning your dinner with a whittled stick, it’s unlikely you’ll ever have fresh seafood next to a babbling brook. Rock Creek is as close as you get to that experience, and you don’t even have to deal with rafting on river rapids. The seafood is excellent (particularly the shrimp and grits and roasted seabass), and it feels like the kind of forest cabin your elitist in-laws would rent and consider “roughing it” just because it has exposed beams. This is a good place for a date or a group hang on the second floor balcony.
