North Point won’t disappoint if you’re looking to disconnect while still being close to many points of interest. Once you enter North Point you’ll know what I mean. Centrally located between Williamsburg, Jamestown and Richmond. You’ll find the Capital Trail close at hand for cycling or walking, as well as many more points of interest. Go to North Point, disconnect, enjoy the stars at night and nature’s sounds that come to life in the dark.
Exactly what I wanted out of a boondocking location, 30 mins from Richmond in a private wooded area with a fire pit. Plenty of space to go around the loop with a big rig and tow car without unhooking
We had a pleasent stay on NorthPoint's private land. It provided us with a base to bike selected sections of the Virginia Capital Bike Trail. We hope to be back for another visit next year. Thank you NorthPoint!
Fine spot in the country to park your rig and explore Virginia.
Quiet except for gun shots- there is a gun club close.
Very minimal interaction with host. Seems nice. Thanks for the stay NorthPoint.
Thank NorthPoint for being so accommodating. We really appreciated our stay. 30 min from Williamsburg which was just the right distance from my in-laws.
Country camping. Host was nice to offer OFF bug spray for mosquitos.
What a lively spot and flat!!! We enjoyed our chat with the host. It's a terrific, peaceful, off the beaten path place. Enjoyed our stay.
The host was great! He let us stay an extra day because we found so much to see in the area. Site was nice and quiet. We had our generator and we loved being able to "boondock". After a day out, it was nice to come back to the site and relax. There is a lot to do in Richmond. Be sure to visit Belle Isle and hike. You cross the river over a pedestrian bridge. If you have children, there is a bike park with all kinds of jumps and ramps right on the island. We're senior citizens, so we didn't partake, but it looked like all the kids were having fun! We visited the American Civil war museum and it was great! Learned a lot. It was a very fair depiction of all sides of the war. Also, visit Maymont estate and park. There is a nature center, estate, beautiful grounds with gardens with different themes and also sort of a mini-zoo with native species and a waterfall. Well worth a visit. We loved the Richmond area and thanks NorthPoint for letting us stay!
Great stay! This place is what I think about when I think of boondocking. Nice, quiet, in the woods, perfect.
Great place to get away to boondock! Host is very friendly and helpful. As long as you don’t mind dry camping, this is a great hideaway.
We booked NorthPoint on our way to Nags Head. NorthPoint had easy access, was easy to locate and had everything we needed. This was our first boondocker experience. I would recommend this location to anyone going through the area.
Thanks for opening up your space so folks like us don’t have to choose a WalMart parking lot. This was a MUCH better experience.
We needed a place to stay for the night, and this suited our needs perfectly
This was our first real boondocking dry experience! The directions were spot on, easy to find location. Nestled deep in a very nicely wooded lot with slight curves to maneuver around. We easily were able to drive our rig (35 ft Fiver) around the graveled surface and parked on the far side of the poled building. The area was quiet at night but we could here construction in the area throughout the day. We did manage to find the ticks and poison ivy in the woods but hey, it's the woods and that's part of camping! It was an easy drive to see several plantations in the area and easy drive to Williamsburg for exploring. Great location if you want to get away from the world (but still have daytime progress noise).
We had no problem parking our 40 foot 5th wheel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Such a beautiful property.
Always a peaceful and relaxing stay. The host came to make sure everything was ok and we had a nice chat. I definitely recommend this location.
Very grateful for the opportunity to stay at this location. Property was big and very quite. Thanks again!
My first time doing a boondocker's welcome place that wasn't at someone's home. Truly isolated and relaxing place to park. The spot I parked in was nearly perfectly level. Would definitely consider returning in the future. =)
Quiet, secluded & relaxing. The host stopped by every day to make sure we were OK.
A beautiful place to stay- so quiet and lovely! We appreciate your hospitality and the chance to see the local historic sites with a peaceful place to return at the end of the day!
We got hung up in traffic before arriving , and so we arrived in the dark, found a spot and went to bed. We left in the morning at 6:30 on our way to our booked campsite at Myrtle Sate Park. We didn’t meet our host but we are grateful we were able to have a great sleep. Very quiet among the sounds of the night ( peepers/frogs)
I stayed for 4 nights and it was the perfect spot for me to begin my retirement. A fire ring, the woods, me and my dog. It was delightful. The host was helpful and kind
Such a nice site. It was quiet, safe and there was plenty of room for us. There was a small clearing that we were able to let the dog run around and burn some energy.
Our second time staying here. As usual, a peaceful, quiet spot. Will certainly return to this secluded, beautiful spot in future travels.
Nice place to hunker down on a chilly, rainy evening. We didn’t meet our host but got a good dinner recommendation.
Super nice host, fantastic location. We took some time and drove a short while into Richmond and enjoyed the Museum of Fine Arts and got some shopping done. Although it rained the entire time we were here, the pups really enjoyed walking in the woods.
We had a great time at Northpoint. Kevin was a great host. It was a convenient spot near Williamsburg and other area attractions. Thank you for having us!
We really appreciate NorthPoint coming through when we were scrambling for a place to stay. Unfortunately, our trip to Richmond fell during race week and we could only get a few nights at the state park. NorthPoint responded to our last-minute request after we struck out trying to extend at the park (thank you again!), and the listing lives up to the description! Close enough to town, yet very private. Would absolutely stay again, and recommend to others.
We stayed on NorthPoint's property for 4 nights as we were visiting the Richmond area. We felt like we had our own campsite. It was quiet and secluded and no one around. Kevin actually lives a few houses down so there is literally no one at night. We SO appreciate the hospitality and really enjoyed this stay. We would say avoid coming in to the spot too late as there are lots of trees that could be an issue if you're not super careful. We have a 38 foot fifth wheel and made it fine with handy maneuvering.
Very responsive host, nice secluded spot. Great location if you are traveling up or down the RT 95 corridor.
We had a great night with this host. It was on our way up to D.C. from Williamsburg. Nice & quiet out in the country & away from anywhere else. Beautiful property & highly recommended!
Nice open site, plenty of room. Make sure you look for the mailbox with 3931 or you can miss it. Will stay there again.
Well hidden and extremely private. Easy in and out. Quiet and secure. I just spent one quick night there but another couple there (with a toad) at the same time would leave early and come back late afternoon, exploring the many historic sites in the area with the assurance that their rig was safe and secure. I didn't meet the host but he was quick to respond positively to my request to alter my stay dates at the last minute.
We were very happy with our stay here and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. Another RVer came in and plenty if room. Easy drive to see the sights and historical areas. Big thanks for letting us stay in your area!!
Easy in and out. Level gravel and secluded from neighbors and traffic. Stopped here on our way to Williamsburg. The provided directions helped as our GPS though it was a mile down the road.
What a great place to stay while visiting the historical sites! Couldn't ask for much more than this. Gravel road is pretty level and easy set up. Good to unwind and watch the fireflies and blue tailed skinks. Lovely spot off a nice road. Thank you.
We loved our stay here. Peaceful and quiet set Back off the road. Nice gravel loop to pull trailer through. Close to Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown, which we lived visiting. Great spot.
Thanks for sharing your awesome property and would definitely stay again! The property is private and tucked in off the road in a rural area close to Richmond, plantations, and about 1.5hr from VA beach. Nothing on the land except for a decently wide gravel driveway loop and his RV parked under a covered structure surrounded by trees. There was a grassy area that the dogs could run around on, but after a bit of rain, it was a little swampy. Very quiet area and only saw the owner for a couple of hours when he came to work on his RV, since he lives down the road. There was plenty of room to pull in with our 33' motorhome and tow car... although, we disconnected the car before driving around the loop.
Perfect location for a first-timer. Just what the doctor ordered... A big circular drive to turn around in, peace and quiet, and easy to get to. Thank you for allowing me to use your property. I really enjoyed myself. Thank you again.
We loved it there. Kevin was kind enough to work with us. A slide out problem delayed our arrival by one day.
The two nights we stayed on this beautiful land was wonderfully peaceful. Thank you so much for the stay!!
The location was great - out in the country. It was so dark the stars were bright and magnificent. The site is completely private and in the woods. Kevin was very responsive. He lives a few miles away so we didn't meet him.
Our host was very accommodating and we greatly appreciated that. He is quite polite and informative. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer, however we needed to be on our way. Would definitely go back and would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for the over night. We may stop in on the way back up.
Host was extremely easy to work with! Very quiet spot and our dog loved running around the property.
This location was just what we were looking for. When we pulled into the entrance of the property we thought perhaps we had taken a wrong turn and were driving into a forest!
But, continuing on, it opened up to an area that we circled around to park. It was definitely secluded and
quiet! We never actually met with our host, but we did communicate with him by phone. We would
stay here again!
This was a great stay. Northpoint was available by phone, but we didn't need anything- an easy in and out, clear directions. There is a bike trail nearby, and you cannot drive anywhere wiithout passing signs that offer historical points of interest. Very restful stay.
Our stay was marked by mostly cold and rain but it was a nice restful spot that has good cell service to get work done. As we left the sun broke through and we got to see how really beautiful this spot is.
Would be great for folks with pets and those who are looking to have some time on their own.
We never met the host but they were responsive via messages and we are grateful for our rest here!
We recommend this spot :)
Easy and straight forward communication. Great spot to explore the James River area. No problems
Stayed with our 36 Ft coach. Very nice spot. Be careful with low overhead branches on road approaching the property. Once on site all is wonderful. Thanks so much.
Our stay was great. We never met our host, but the property was perfect for our 39 foot 5th wheel. Thank you for a great stay!

Thanks for a quiet place to stay for the night.
This was our first BDW camping experience, and we had a great one! NorthPoint's site is fantastic! Secluded in a beautiful wooded setting not far from Richmond, we were greeted by tons of wildlife- birds, lizards, deer, and a ton of butterflies. The gravel lot is nice and level, with plenty of room for a bigger rig. The covered area was great for parking under on rainy days, and we simply backed up into the open area and got plenty of sun for our solar panels.
We are so happy we stayed here and so glad to be part of the BDW community. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful property NorthPoint! <3
Very private place off of a quiet road. Level, nice scenery (surrounded by trees) with plenty of room to turn around.
Thanks so much for sharing it with us NorthPoint!
We found the campsite easily before dark and had a very quiet, peaceful stay in the woods. Since there were no street lights in the area we could see the stars and woke up to the sound of singing birds. Many thanks to our host for sharing with fellow boondockers. We would be happy to stay here again.
What a great little spot. Had a really nice fire pit that we were not able to take advantage of due to weather. Had a nice little grassy spot that our dog could stretch her legs in
We didn't get a chance to meet NorthPoint but sure appreciated having a quiet place to spend the night.
What a great place to stay. Directions are spot on! Peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed staying here very much! Thanks!!
Presently there is a pole barn that is being constructed to park under (until he moves his here) but even if that isn't available there's ample space. Easy to get an RV turned around because of the circle drive. Nice peaceful night sounds of frogs and whatever and a densely treed setting surrounding you. About 45 minutes from colonial Williamsburg. I wouldn't recommend trying to Find it at night. Host was very helpful in finding the spot. If I come here again I'll certainly plan on trying to stay here.
We stayed at the property of NorthPoint for only one night. It was lovely, quiet and peaceful. Thanks NorthPoint for sharing your little bit of heaven.
