Looking for a personal retreat or get away ?  Escape to our beautiful, RUSTIC 34 acre wild homestead / farm. 

This is a working medicinal herb farm, a community of beautiful souls,  as well as our home. Please read all of our guidelines for camping here thoroughly, as well as Arrival Instructions, so that you can be well prepared ahead of time. We are happy to answer questions, however most of the answers to your questions will be listed  in the info we've given. We operate by the Hipcamp option of "Self Check in" . This means that once you receive your initial booking confirmation, we will reply to you once. After that, no need to text or call to let us know how far away you are. This allows for more flexibility for you and us. Our arrival instructions have all the info necessary for you to get settled in. We usually, but not always, run into folks at some point and introduce ourselves and say hello. *We do not provide firewood, but you can buy a bundle from 7/11 or Food lion just down the road.

Feel free to wander through the herb gardens, eat your meals in the garden pavilion (we have picnic tables), hang out in the hammocks, get your Zen on in the meditation hut , and stroll through the woodland medicine path where we grow endangered  and at at risk plants. You may see our dog, Tulsi wandering about.  She is friendly, just please let her sniff you first. She is old and going blind, and that helps. There is also a lot of wildlife out here on the land and they make a lot of weird and sometimes startling noises. This is perfectly normal for rural / wooded areas. We have 2 campsites and they are not numbered (even though Hicamp numbers them) pick whichever one is available. No arrivals after 8pm.

Downtown Shepherdstown, the Potomac River and the C &O Trail is just 10 minutes away. Upon arrival, grab a handout from the box on the visitor parking sign. The map on the back has a layout of the land and should point you in the right direction of campsites, water, shower, outhouse, and whatever else you might be looking for, including recommendations of great places to eat in town and fun things to do.

Shepherdstown  Peddle and Paddle in town offers rentals for kayaking , canoeing tubing or biking. We are also within an hour drive to the Appalachian Trail and several state parks - Harper’s Ferry, Washington Monument State Park, Gathland State Park , Shenandoah  National Park and Catoctin Mountain State  Park  !!  

We offer a variety of classes and events on the weekends as well. Small groups... not to worry. We have 34 acres, so there is plenty of space. If you would like to know what we are offering for the  weekend, you can visit our website sacredrootswv.com. 

- Campfires -  We do not provide firewood. Please bring your own firewood bundle. 7-Eleven and Food Lion  just 10 minutes away has some for sale, and you are welcome to forage from downed trees and branches . Woodpile in front of yurt (our home) and in Sacred Circle is not for public use. Please DO NOT burn fires in Sacred Circle fire ring (we use that for ceremony only), or fire ring by yurt . Thanks.

-Some cell service does not work out here. We have AT and T. Verizon is spotty if it all.

- Maps of land and local tips located in box under parking sign.  

- Potable drinking water is available . Bring container for filling. Water pump location is on map.

- Camping  is permitted in designated areas only.

- There is a railroad track about 10 miles away. If you are a light sleeper, we recommend bringing ear plugs.

- Please note..,we do not issue refunds if you choose to leave early due to rain..

- Check out our local farm stand while you are here (located outside the small garage door). We always have a variety of handmade and homegrown goodies for sale .... anything from fresh eggs, herbs, berries, wooden spoons, baskets, and more ! 

- Schedule a massage on the farm! Andrea Jannotta is a licensed massage therapist offering holistic bodywork and somatic meditation both here on the farm as well as in downtown Shepherdstown.  Experience a calming massage surrounded by the beauty of the land and the songs of birds.  Her contact information can be found on the Sacred Roots website, call or text for rates and to schedule an appointment. 

- We are 100 % Solar Powered . Power is not available at campsites. If you need to plug into an outlet, you can plug into a power strip that is in the garden pavilion on the other side of the land....IF there is power available at the time. Power availability is subject to the weather. There is no guarantee.

- If you are looking to come to the woods to PARTY... this is NOT the place for you !

Really enjoyed it here. We were the only campers. Everyone on the farm was very friendly and welcoming. Loved all of the herbs growing around the farm and getting to look at all of the herb fields. Will 100% come back!

Our stay was peaceful and perfect! Couldn’t have been happier with everything. Space was quiet and far enough away from the other campsite. We loved waking up and walking the grounds to see everything it had to offer.

Hillary was a wonderful host and we had a great camping experience - especially for the two 4 year olds who were camping for their first time.

Very easy directions, amazing property, and we will definitely come back another time.

We had a nice time staying at Off Grid Medicinal Herb Farm. The campsite was quiet and had plenty of space. The only difficulty was that the water is a few minutes walk away from the site - we should have brought larger containers.

Hillary’s land was so restorative and connective. We loved every second of listening to owls, coyotes and other creatures as we fell asleep. We enjoyed a live music event that happens at the herb farm the evening we were there, and would have joined the drum circle if we weren’t so tired from our trip. I would recommend this listing to anyone looking for a camping experience on a unique and creative property in nature.

My wife and I are avid tent campers that enjoy random experiences and tend to go with whatever is laid before us. Our entire experience with Sacred Roots fit into that description perfectly. A warm welcoming environment with a familial atmosphere and people you’ll love to talk to if you want. Or hang back and enjoy the privacy and nature. The only thing I would make future hip campers aware of is the train that comes through a couple times in the evening, not terribly loud but may disturb if you are a light sleeper. Mind the rules of this place it is sacred indeed. We will be coming back to Sacred Roots that’s for sure.
