We are 5 minutes outside the town of Smithfield on 38 acres of mostly wooded land. We are mostly secluded and have walking trails on the property. The trails are well defined and there are some hilly parts.
If you need electricity and/or water, you would park by our garage. If you just want to totally boondock, you would park in one of the grassy areas. If you are with a group of campers we can probably accommodate up to 6. If not groups, then only 3.
We do have three dogs that run at large most of the day. If that is a concern please let us know so we can put them in a fenced area.
If you use electricity to run an AC unit or heater, we ask for $10 to help cover utlities.
If you just use it for lights then just $5.
Be respectful. Leave the property in the same condition in which you found it. Be sure we communicate about pets prior to your arrival.
If you smoke, please dispose of butts in the proper way.
We live off a short dirt road. There is a bend in the road but we have no problems navigating with our 30’ travel trailer.
Depending on where you park (whether you want access to electricity or not) will depend on the amount of backing. But, there is lots of room for backing.....no tight spaces.
Lots of parking for tow vehicles right by your rig.
We are 5 minutes outside of downtown Smithfield..... home of Smithfield hams. Smithfield has a downtown district featuring historic attractions, charming shops, boutiques and galleries as well as restaurants and a brew pub. We are one hour from the Virginia Beach oceanfront.
Lots of historic locations and numerous military bases within an hour.
I can't say how much I enjoyed the spot but the real treat was how wonderful the hosts are and how beautifully they treated me.
If you want a real treat then stop by for a visit at Krohn's paradise! You will be warmly welcomed by the nicest folks you could ever want to meet.
Thank you tkrohn, I hope our paths can cross again someday.
This host stayed with us earlier this year. They were great guests. This time we needed a place to stay while dealing with family matters. She opened her grassy field for us to set up camp. We filled our water tank and Boondocked for a few days. Gracious and very friendly hosts. Quiet, out in the country yet only minutes to the town of Smithfield. Highly recommended and look forward to staying here again.
Great quiet place with easy access for our 35’ motorhome and towed. The grass areas are nice and firm. Our host were very nice and came over to say hi and line us out and gave us some ideas on things to see. This really is a slice of paradise!
Really amazing stay. I came in and they treated me like family. We chatted and got to know each other and the other RV families that were staying there. All wonderful people. Level ground with lots of space to set up chairs. Hiking trails on their property that made for a wonderful walk in the morning.
Bless tKrogn for dealing with 3 boondockers at once. It can be time consuming for them meeting and greeting each arrival and giving us the layout of the land. They did this so graciously and were so friendly, as were their dogs after we were introduced. Beautiful, quiet expansive property for my free running German Shepard who greatly appreciated his ball time. We took the local free ferry into Williamsburg for the day WITH our RV. Thank you again for a great time.
The Krohn's are great hosts and their lovely property couldn't be more ideal for boon docking. Wide open spaces, great walking trail loop, and so quiet like you only get away from city and highways. Very accommodating to our dogs, friendly and stopped and talked a while when we arrived. Loved every minute of our stay, thank you for letting us!
We boondocked at Krohn's Paradise for a couple of nights in their field along the drive and had a great stay. No issues getting a 40' 5er in there and turned around. We enjoyed the local Windsor Castle Park, and also took a day trip to Jamestowne and Yorktown via the free ferry. (RVs can also traverse via the ferry - but check for height or length restrictions first) We enjoyed meeting the hosts while the kids visited with their dogs. Host communication was great and we couldn't have asked for a quieter place to spend a couple of nights. Thanks so much!
Thank you Krohns paradise for sharing your personal patch of peace. This was our very first time boondocking and only our second trip in our new coach. The hosts where extremely friendly and very accommodating. We were able to coordinate an awesome meet and greet with all of our dogs and all of them got along just fine, no issues at all. Very quiet, peaceful and well kept land. We had loads of space to set up our 38ft diesel pusher with tow vehicle. There was a second RV the next day and there was so much room you wouldn't even know they were there. We would love to visit this little paradise again! Thanks again!
The hosts greeted me with open arms and doggies :) Very gracious hosts and wonderful location. I did not need any hookups so was able to set-up in a field on their property. They have some very nice walking trails through their wooded property that I very much enjoyed. This location is close to a historic town and nearby recreation. I would highly recommend this location if you like rural quiet places to stay.
