About Us

Recognized by the Masters of Foxhound Association in 1926, we maintain a professional huntsman and a kennel with 20 to 25 couple crossbred English and American hounds.

The Grounds

The terrain is a mix of lush swamps, hardwood forests, and mature pine woods. The footing is mostly sandy and very horse friendly. The area is part of the sand hills region of the Carolinas and has always been a favorite destination for horsemen of every equestrian discipline. Camden’s historical past, and its rich tradition of steeple chasing provide a backdrop of sporting elegance that harkens to an earlier time.

Hunt country is well paneled with Coops but horse and rider can go around each obstacle. There are two fields, the first which jumps, and the second flight which goes at a slower pace.

Game is abundant and consists of red and gray foxes as well as coyote. All are acceptable quarry under the guidelines of the MFHA, and each provides unique sport in a completely natural environment.

The Hounds

Our hounds are primarily crossbred which is a combination of English and American hounds. They are bred for their nose, drive, and stamina and can press their quarry for hours when scenting conditions are at there best. It is not uncommon to view game several times on any given day. Although intense in the hunt field, the hounds are extremely biddable and have fared well on the boards at Hound Shows. We are fortunate to employ a professional huntsman. Her dedication and knowledge provide the foundation for a healthy pack of hard hunting hounds.
