Our site is a secluded, wooded acreage with ponds, streams and wildlife. We have walking trails and docks on the ponds. The view of the night sky has nearly no light pollution though it is restricted peripherally by the trees. There is an abundance of wildlife and incredible biodiversity.
We do have water available to take on for your fresh tank or drinking (and it’s cold, delicious and fresh from our well). We have a camp fire ring. We also have adults here with some knowledge and training in RV and mechanical issues/repairs (appropriate fees for work do apply). We have a garden in season and there is also some availability for wild harvesting of berries and mushrooms, etc in season.
-There are no fences on the property so animals must be leashed or contained. If we have livestock out, your animals must not be a harm to them.
-Children, young children especially must be closely supervised at ALL times as there is a pond directly near the parking spot and there is no fence or barrier.
-use of tobacco, alcohol or marijuana is permitted in your rig/area but please see that all is cleaned up and we ask that it not be visible to our children.
-generator use is permitted in daylight hours as necessary for appliances and battery charging but must be off by 8pm please. Also, if your generator is very loud, we may ask that you reduce the time you are using it.
Safety is the word. We are happy to enjoy all varieties of people (and their animal friends) but safety is paramount
Finally - please practice pack it in/pack it out. There are dumpster sites around the county where you may drop your trash when you leave (I can provide location suggestions based on your intended route). There are also campgrounds in the region for your dumping and paid/hookup camping needs
The road to the property is paved, 2 lane but no painted lines or reflectors (country road). The driveway on the property is gravel and dirt/mud. There are some relatively tight turns and maneuvering and backing up will be necessary. I am quite comfortable with my excursion towing a 35 ft Jayco bumper pull with these maneuvers but if you have a large rig and are not comfortable with backing it up, this is not the site for you. There are also trees and the possibility of contact if your rig is tall
We have plenty of area in our regular driveway space for tow vehicle if needed/desired
We are usually home, so there are nearly always children here. We do take our own spur-of-the-moment trips, but always feel free to check if I haven’t blocked off dates.
We are 5 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway (about 7 miles from the Mabry Mill site). We are close to Buffalo Mountain Natural area preserve. There are hiking trails on Buffalo Mountain and on the parkway. We are in Floyd County, VA which is on the Crooked Road music trail and home to Floyd Fest each summer. There are many local farms and thriving farm markets in the warm season. The Little River in Floyd also has some good fishing. There is a campground in nearby Meadows of Dan and a couple in Floyd county for your dumping and paid/hookup needs.
