Rendezvous Farm
5 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents16 acres · Basye, VirginiaThis raw forested land bordering George Washington National Forest on two sides was purchased in 2002. Over the next six years a 2 acre pasture and .8 acre house site were cleared on weekends, a small pond was dug, additional land was cleared and a wildlife planting made, then our home and multiple outbuildings were constructed.  We began raising chickens for meat and eggs, as well as rabbits, quail, doves and pigeons, and developed two vegetable and fruit gardens to provide food for ourselves and to sell at farmer's markets. The property is a state certified Wildlife Partners Habitat because of the many improvements made for wildlife. Allen and Peggy were married atop a special rock on the property in 2004.

Washington, D.C is one of the most-visited spots in the United States. It’s packed with iconic sights, from the Lincoln Memorial to the White House. Whether you’re coming alone or with a group, camping is a great way to see the nation’s capital.

You won’t find any tent or RV sites within the city. Instead, look to the green spaces in Maryland and Virginia. For primitive tent camping, try Robert C. McDonell Campground. Bull Run Regional Park offers cabins, tent sites, and sites with full hookups.

Just 12 miles from downtown, Greenbelt Park welcomes tents and RVs in 174 sites. With its wooded landscape and 9 miles of hiking trails, this park is the perfect place to relax. It’s run by the National Park Service, so you can reserve sites online.

RV travelers should head for Pohick Bay Regional Park. At this Potomac River spot, you’ll find 100 sites with 30-amp hookups. The park also offers tent sites and comfortable cabins. The onsite lake provides swimming and boating during the warmer months. Within an hour of the city, you can also find year-round private campgrounds with Wi-Fi and other amenities.

Once you’re settled in, there’s plenty to explore in the D.C. area. Explore 1,700-acre Rock Creek Park by bike or on horseback. Rent a kayak at Georgetown Waterfront Park and paddle the Potomac or the Tidal Basin. Feel like running? The Mount Vernon Trail offers great views of the D.C. skyline.
