This is a FULL HOOK-UP, VERY EASY PULL THROUGH SITE!-WATER, SEWAGE, AND 30amp/120 volt ELECTRICITY. EASY PULL THRU IN/OUT! Water is filtered well-water; potable and what we drink but you may wish to have your own bottle water for food/drinking use. 

CLOSE TO HUNGRY MOTHER STATE PARK, GRAYSON HIGHLANDS STATE PARK, JEFFERSON NATIONAL FOREST, MOUNT ROGERS RECREATIONAL AREA, THE VIRGINIA CREEPER TRAIL, THE TRANSVIRGINIA BICYCLE ROUTE, AND THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL! 

Convenient to I-81 and Route 16- Back of the Dragon. 

We just added a new driveway connection to make it even easier to pull back onto the road! 

This area has a very different climate than many other parts of Virginia. We are located in a Köppen Climate Classification Zone Cfb, which is a Temperate Oceanic Climate (or sometimes called Marine West Coast Climate). Yes, the Southwest Mountains of VA have a maritime climate! Think Coastal Alaska, Pacific Northwest, or British Columbia to get an idea of our climate. All of which means our summers are cooler (average of 83 in August) with low humidity, and our winters are milder. So this is a great place to escape the hot humid Virginia summers! 

We experience four true seasons, and the colors in the fall season are some of prettiest on the East Coast and perfect for leaf peeping! 

We have deer, wild turkey, bear, chipmunks, raccoons, wild rabbits, Whip-poor-wills, and opossums on the property. Plus, the fireflies at night can be beautiful! 

Plus, we've yet to see a mosquito! 

There may be another camper a discreet distance away. 

There is no cell phone coverage and limited strength wifi, so unplug and relax! 

The Camping Site is part of our mountainside property located in Long Hollow and sits on the edge of 7 acres of pasture, which leads to 7 acres of White Pine Forest you are welcome to use for walking, wildlife viewing, dog walking, etc.. It is conveniently located less than 2/10s a mile from Rt. 16, and 5 miles from I-81.

Our neighbors are quiet but you may hear their donkey braying or chickens clucking. We ask that you do not disturb the neighbors or interact in any way with their animals. There is a Firepit and Picnic Table for your use.

Please no smoking-- we usually have some sort of breeze and the smoke/smell carries.

Everything was great. We were greeted and assisted with leveling and hookup upon arrival. The firewood was replenished before we completed hook-ups. The deer arrived just before dark and one greeted us at the firepit. We were greeted in the morning to check that everything was satisfactory. We could'nt have asked for a more professional experience. Thank you so much.

It was peaceful and loving the sounds from the nearby farm animals made it even more relaxing. The pine forest hike is worth the walk up the hill.

This was a great place to use as our base for exploring Southwest VA. The full hook up site was immaculate, and hosts were friendly and offered suggestions via texts or in person for places to visit. This was our second stay. The first time was for a convenient overnight on the way to Georgia. We made it point to come back, this time for a week, to explore and view the fall colors. You may hear the occasional donkey bray or rooster crow from the neighbors, but nothing annoying. The site is near the road, but it’s a dead end road and very lightly traveled by residents with an easy in and out with our trailer. The trail up the hill through the pines was nice to walk the dogs. We definitely want to stay here again.

Janet and her husband were super helpful and the site was great. It’s a beautiful area to stay at and love the delivery of the farm fresh eggs, a nice touch. A very nice place to stay if your in the area. Thank you for the hospitality!

Very helpful and welcoming hosts. We only stayed overnight and didn't need hook up but it was all right there and convenient to the rig. The wifi was good enough to do FB, text on messenger and research activities nearby. They have brochures available on the area and while we didn't take advantage of the hiking trails, the woods behind us were nice and thick. Quiet place overnight with a lovely rooster and donkey wake up call. It made us feel at home. Picnic table with fire ring and available dry wood was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend!

This was a beautiful secluded spot but only a few minutes from town and the parks and lakes we wanted to visit. We enjoyed our morning coffee with the neighboring roosters and donkey. Evenings spent by the firepit gazing at the clear, beautiful starlit sky were very relaxing and therapeutic. The drive-through loop was convenient, but was a little sharp turning into from the paved road with our travel trailer, but we made it okay. The full hookup was convenient to our camper with only a minor hiccup which the hosts were very responsive to and remedied immediately. We enjoyed our stay even though we didn't see a real live bear. Hosts are super-friendly and accommodating.

Lovely white pine forest on the property.Great little spot!

We stopped here on a long cross country move and were just looking for a quiet spot to rest for the night. We enjoyed the quiet and bucolic setting. I particularly enjoyed seeing and hearing the animals from across the road. From the picture I was a little worried about the site being so close to the road but it turns out hardly anyone drives on this road, so it was very quiet and private. Waking up to the sound of birds, insects and roosters was wonderful! We had everything we needed with the full hookups and WiFi and managed to squeeze in a short hike on the Appalachian trail which is just about a mile from Janet's place. Communication with Janet was easy and the site easy to find.

This was a great campsite. We only stayed overnight and it was conveniently located off of the highway and the pull through site was much appreciated! Would recommend!
