We live in a modern log cabin on 10 acres of hilly, mostly wooded land, in a sparsely populated area, surprisingly close to town. We have playground equipment, free range birds, some wildlife, a pond, large deck, and a long paved driveway. We are accustomed to having one or two parties camping on our property through various arrangements, doing either tent camping or RVs. More pictures of our place can be found at https://photos.app.goo.gl/9osqfpEzwhup8wvP7
We typically discourage a lot of loud noise after 10pm
We are particular about not polluting the land around here
We are particular about outside firewood that could bring pests or disease onto the land
We dont want pets murdering our chickens
We dont want visitors or their pets wandering off onto neighbors' land
Getting to our property is easy enough, travelling a gravel road in hilly terrain. Getting to the parking sites takes some maneuvering but it is doable enough. There are a couple of sites on our property, near one another, one is easier to access than the other. The first site is easy enough, as it is a back-in site at the entrance to a gravel road that is immediately off of our paved driveway. The second site going out to a meadow is reached by continuing down this short gravel road right off of our driveway, it has a dip in it and a narrow spot that is easy enough for small vehicles but gets increasingly challenging the bigger the rig is. it is doable with some patience and skill. It is possible to drive all the way through the meadow and turn around, but only when the ground is dry. otherwise this is a back in site.
Depending on exactly where we park you, there may be option to leave towing vehicle attached, or park it in one of a number of locations nearby on the property
The site with electric/water hookup is almost always available on week days, while weekends are kind of hit/miss as it may be already taken. If you dont require constant hookup to water/electric and just need a spot to park in with some, but limited access to water and electric, then that is more likely to be available on weekends. Either way, dont hesitate to ask.
Silver Lake is a beautiful park with large still lake right down the road, Winery at La Grange is very nearby as well. We have a Cabelas store nearby! We are just several miles outside of the town of haymarket, and a larger town Gainesville is not much further away
Ken is a great host, helped us back our 30' Class C into a quiet spot on a hill. Water and 30A was nice. There are roosters; I'll leave that for you to decide if that's a plus or minus. They're cooped until mid morning away from the camp site.
There is a very cool winery and very cool brewery within a 20 minute drive. Both allow dogs. Nice regional park for paddling and Bull Run Battlefield for hiking and history.
Overall a nice place. UNHOOK your tow vehicle at the beginning of Duck Road!
Maui the poultry guard dog is a pleasant fellow. He and our old dog got along well.
Ken greeted us and helped us get settled in. The property is gorgeous and it feels like you you are in the middle of nowhere, yet you are minutes from amenities. Highly recommend!
A very quiet spot back in the woods. A but tricky to get to, but worth it. And a pond just down the hill! Gracious host, electric and water available, and they had too many eggs from their chickens and gave me a half dozen!
