Camping with dogs!
My boyfriend and I and our two dogs stayed at the riverside campsite and it was amazingly beautiful and very peaceful. The sunset on the water was such a gorgeous view and the walkout dock into the water made stargazing at night so memorable. The hosts were extremely accommodating and really made the effort to make sure you’re very comfortable and happy with your stay. 10/10 recommend!

We had an amazing stay! There are two camping sites. We stayed on the meadow one (not as close to water). It was private and less windy there. The host was wonderful and accommodating to our needs. We especially enjoyed kayaking on the water. Definitely recommend staying here.

Amazing waterside camp on beautiful
The Riverside site is fantastic, cozy, right on the water and surrounded by trees. Donna and Mike are kind and welcoming hosts, and their land is magical and perfect for camping, fishing and kayaking. I’ll be back there for more nature and rest! I paid for bathroom access and it was easy and convenient. Highly recommend!

Group camping with dogs!
We have a lovely weekend at the riverside site. There was plenty of space for 4 tents and few dogs.’. We kayaked, hiked local trails and cooked over the fire. Definitely bring bug spray, tablecloth and some firewood. It’s worth it to pay for bathroom facility privileges. Donna and Mike were great hosts.

Great beautiful site with great optional amenities. Unfortunately we camped during the peak of the summer and the heat and mosquitos were a but unbearable. I think we will be back when the weather is cooler as it is quite the gem.

Overall we had a great time. Very private. A picnic table is offered but it's old and not in good shape. Bring a table cloth for it. The bathroom is just old and rustic. The smell of mildew

We had an an amazing time. We stayed at the site that is right on the water. It was very private and quiet. And gorgeous views of the water. There were chairs and a table, along with a fire pit. The hosts are wonderful and very nice (they even left a vase of flowers at the campsite). We highly recommend!

Land and Water Site
The view is absolutely lovely, and the peace and quiet were welcome. The hosts provided access to an indoor restroom, and left their number should I need anything during my stay. I rented one of their kayaks for a nice few hours on the water watching bald eagles in the trees around the water’s edge and fish jump out of the water. Also, there were hundreds of tiny frogs around the site, and they were adorable neighbors during my stay.

Camping and kayaking with dogs!
Perfect weekend getaway by the water. We camped at the Riverside site. Nice private spot with direct water access, which we took advantage of as an opportunity to introduce our dogs to kayak life. You'll be surprised by nature, so be prepared for a chorus of frogs in the evening, and plenty of opportunity for wildlife watching by day. When pitching your tents, stay towards the treeline if any rain/storms are expected (we had some summer storms roll through which partially flooded a portion of the site, closest to the water). Hosts Donna and Michael were very helpful and made our stay as great one, and were very responsive throughout if we needed anything (even helping direct me when my car for stuck in the mud after said storms rolled through ). All in all, perfect if you are looking for a low key getaway with some great water views and paddling adventures. We had such a good experience we've already planned a return!

It was great - such a relaxing and peaceful spot off the Potomac River with lovely views. The tree frogs were loud and lovely and a few bald eagles spent the morning trying to catch fish not too far from our spot! The weekend was very hot but the site had plenty of shade for us.

Beautiful water views!
We easily set up a small trailer, one tent and a hammock at the waters edge. The frogs were LOUD. We laughed at them challenging each other so vigorously. The set setting over the water was breathtakingly beautiful both nights. We choose to pay for access to the modern bathroom and it was well worth the extra fee. Clean. Easily accessed. We will return when in the area. Highly recommend.

We loved this spot right next to the creek. It was peaceful and you can hear the birds chirping all the time. We saw tons of bald eagles, ospreys, swallows, and more! The host was very friendly. We highly recommend this place.

If you are looking to be in the woods with a quiet view of the river. You have found it. Friendly and helpful host. Be ready to wagon your gear down an easy short path or bring your four wheel drive. Picture perfect! Kids kayaked and fished right off the river bank and ate fresh eggs.

I really enjoyed my stay! The campsite was well maintained and the host was extremely hospitable. It was such a nice touch for them to have firewood well organized at the campsite which relieved a burden for us. I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone who wants to enjoy a relaxing camping experience.
