Many Civil War battlefield attractions are nearby. Monticello and Montpelier are both within an hours drive.

Our second stay at Narrow Gate Farm was every bit as enjoyable as our first! Wonderful hosts, great accommodations, what more can you ask for!
The hosts were very accommodating, helping us find the perfect spot for our huge rig. We overlooked the farm from a hilltop and it was beautiful. The horses and the huge dog, Finn, made an awesome welcoming committee.
This was our first Boondocking experience in our brand new Winnebago Solis just me and my girls. We headed down from Delaware for the weekend. I was super nervous giving it go on my own with the kids but this ended up being the perfect location. The owner and his daughter were super welcoming and knowledgeable which allowed me to relax knowing they were a resource if we needed anything! Staying in the arena was a lot of fun. Beautiful farm scenery all around with both cows and horses to watch right from our site. We were able to explore “hike” the farm and the surrounding wooded area. Perfect for young kids with tired legs! Jim let us know about a water pump with fresh water if we needed it up by a shed - this came in handy when I became stuck in the mud on our hike! The kids favorite part was when the daughter came and showed us the horses and let the kids ride one around the arena! They didn’t want to get off! This was a great weekend and we plan to return in a few weeks to check out the fall foliage! Be sure to say Hi to Fin the Great Dane!
Great location for easy access to caverns and the Shenandoah National Park - we did go for a drive but the fog was so dense we could not enjoy the overlooks! Next time!
Our stay at Narrow Gate Farm was excellent. Our host had a large family with a lot going on but he made sure to provide us with all the answers to our questions about the area ....and also just hung out and visited a few times which we always appreciate. We loved how quiet and peaceful It was on the entire property. This part of VA is a beautiful area to explore. So much history is close at hand and we even got a nice afternoon of canoeing in on the Rappahannock River. If exploring is not your cup of tea, Narrow Gate Farm is also just a great place to relax. We would stop here again if in the area, or maybe, with any luck, we’ll run into our host when they are out-n-about in their beautiful remodeled tour bus. Thanks so much for all your hospitality and good conversation.
We had a wonderful and relaxing week on their property the scenery was very beautiful. The family was very hospitable and the host was great. He was very accommodating and fun to be around. They even had a great Dane on the property that was very friendly and loves to visit us each day. The family has voted and we all agree that was our favorite place to Boondock. If we are ever in the Virginia area again we would definitely consider stopping in again. We also would recommend this to any of our friends and family great place great people.
Jim and his family and pets are so friendly. We felt like me met old friends.
A quiet and friendly atmosphere. What else could you want.
We highly recommend.
Great time with this family. They boondocked with us a while ago. In conversation, it was mentioned that he is a partner in a RV repair business. Well our gen hasn't worked since December. So we took our RV over to his shop. His farm is awesome and we got to go to local tourist spots and again great. We are heading back over in a couple of weeks to have the gen replaced. I would advise any boondocker is if you get a chance, go here!!!! 10 out of 10!
Owners are very friendly, helpful and have a beautiful Farm! We are Extremely happy with our stay here and highly recommend it!
Could not have had a more congenial and welcoming host...generous, knowledgeable, friendly! Farm so beautiful and peaceful...relaxing...great to see friendly horses...plenty of space. Wonderful experience! Would eagerly return...thank you Jim for a great time and all your kindness!
This site has a beautiful view of a valley. It's very rural. Beautiful stars nice level firm campsite. Super friendly owners. Had a great time highly recommend
This was our first boondocking trip. We did not know what to expect but NarrowGateFarm set a very high bar. The hosts were very welcoming, helpful, and accommodating. We were met first by the beautiful Finn, the Great Dane puppy and the horses and cows made wonderful views out our windows. There was plenty of room for parking and fresh water was available on this very peaceful farm., I feel we have made new forever friends.
Although this was my first Boondocking experience, I felt very comfortable and safe The host and his family were very friendly and accommodating. We were able to run or generator, as it was very hot. My fresh water tank was low but there was a water available to refill it.
I was met on arrival with a warm welcome, and showed the choices of where I could park. I preferred the shed where the roof provided some respite from the sun, 95’...so hot!
The dogs Were fun to play with and watch play, each with it’s own personality, I enjoyed all 3 of them, as well as the the horses and cows.
The area was very quiet and peaceful.
Both hosts were easy and interesting to talk with.
I chose to leave the day after arrival due to the heat and needing to run my air conditioner which required me to run my generator. The hosts were totally understanding and left me with an invitation to come back any time.
I look forward to seeing them again and spending time, perhaps next time in the horse ring where star watching is amazing.
Narrow Gate Farm is beautiful, and located in one of our favorite areas of the US. The hosts made us feel welcome, and could not have been more accommodating. This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome, and what a treat! We look forward to returning here in the fall!!
J & C have a gorgeous farm and a perfect spot to rest the camper! We thoroughly enjoyed having the horses nearby and getting daily visits from Fin the great dane. Their family is very friendly and love to chat, would totally enjoy revisiting any time!
We are so thankful to have had such an amazing first experience boondocking at your farm. We couldn’t have asked for more gracious and helpful hosts, besides the fact that your property with all its animals is absolutely Gorgeous. It was such a nice reprieve for us to get away from our busy metropolitan lives and leave everything behind for a couple of days. We can’t thank you enough and hope to be able to visit you again one day!
The host property was close enough to town for convenience, but far enough away to experience and enjoy a quiet farm setting. The hosts were wonderful and even provided fresh water to fill our tank. Great place - we would definitely stay again!!
