We are located 1.4 miles off of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Floyd County, VA. Enjoy camping inside a magical circle of wild rhododendron, surrounded by peaceful forest. The site is accessible from our long, gravel driveway, and includes a picnic table and fire ring. There is a full bathroom in our studio outbuilding, which is less than a three minute walk from the campsite. There are nearby hiking trails, and  the Blue Ridge Parkway is easily accessible for bicycling. Floyd County offers kayaking, tubing, and fishing as well.

The town of Floyd is a 15-20 minute drive from us - and home to the Floyd Country Store which is famous for the Friday Night Jamboree. Floyd has wonderful shops and galleries, fabulous coffee roasters, organic farms, local wineries, a bee sanctuary, and terrific restaurants. There is a seasonal Saturday Floyd Farmers Market (open May 5th - November 17th in 2018) that can't be beat!

This place was a hidden gem. Highly recommend. Host, Lindsey was very welcoming and made our stay, although quick, relaxing and enjoyable. We would definitely return to stay again.

Lindsey and her husband were not only welcoming, but they were super nice. Her husband's art studio served as our restroom. Lindsey checked on us the night before we left. Her husband provided us wood. Lindsey also inquired about our comfort in regards to COVID-19. We definitely plan to rebook!

This site is beautiful and private! It’s surrounded by laurel with a fire pit, platform for your tent, and a table. It’s a very well-kept site. The hosts provided firewood and a tripod grate to cook over the fire. The bathroom was very clean and only a short walk away from camp. Both of the hosts were incredibly friendly and responded quickly to all of my messages. We will definitely be staying here again for any future trips to the Floyd area.

This was my second stay here and certainly won’t be my last. Tom and Lindsey are awesome and I don’t think you could expect a better experience than what they offer. I wish I could just buy this spot to have year round 😂

Last time I never left the campsite, but the weather was a bit more iffy this time so I went exploring a bit. About 5 miles down the road is a wonderful organic farm called Riverstone. I highly recommend checking it out. They offer produce, meats, cheeses, snacks, drinks and even books! Sorry, I know this review is for the campsite, but this farm close by is a selling point in my opinion. If you never leave the campsite at all, you won’t be disappointed, but there are a lot of great places to visit in the local community. I’m already looking forward to my next visit!

Camp was perfect and the Nakiashimas were fantastic hosts! The bathroom on the property Is close to camp and very clean and private. There is a campfire tripod grill which was surprising but Extremely useful! The hosts also provide seasoned firewood. We were able to have a campfire all day which helped keep the bugs away in August. We put a 4 person tent on the platform (next time we will use it as a place for a camp kitchen) and a 1 person tent on the ground. There was still more than enough space for the provided wood table, which we moved to better suit ourselves, 2 fold up tables, 3 coolers and 3 chairs and then everything else you bring camping. The campsite has a beautiful tree canopy that keeps the hot sun off of you and the ground is very nice and soft. Lindsey even asked if we needed anything from the Floyd farmers market Saturday morning! We really enjoyed the peace and quiet. There is some noise from cars going by but it’s not bad at all. All 3 of us slept very well. We left a day early just because we are new to camping and just couldn’t do one more night and the hosts refunded a nights stay, which was very unnecessary but extremely kind since we made the decision to leave and it had nothing to do with the site or the hosts. The Nakashimas are so very kind and thoughtful about their space and I would totally recommend this campsite!

“In the sticks” was so much better than I could’ve hoped for. The property was gorgeous, the site was HUGE, the bathroom and shower are perfect, and Lindsey and Tom were exceptionally gracious and kind hosts. I could not recommend this site more. The town of Floyd is so charming and is about a 25 minute beautiful drive away, and Lindsey and Tom had several suggestions of things to do in the area. Do yourself a favor and stay at this incredible site!!!

What an excellent place to stay!!! Looking for a comfy and private campsite with a bathroom and shower? This is the one. There's plenty of space for tents, trees for hammocks, and even a grill to lower over the fire pit. Excellent host and hostess will treat you well. Thank you L & T for a wonderful place to spend my weekend!

This is such a wonderful place! I can't wait to go back again, as this has now become my new favorite place to camp. Spacious, but very private space that even has a nice full bath a very short walk away. I can't say enough about the kindness of the hosts. They gave me a wonderful tour of the property upon arrival and were available for anything I might need. Camping 'In the Sticks' was an all around great experience! Highly recommended!
