Savage Acres on Craig Creek

6 sites · RVs, Tents120 acres · New Castle, VA
In a remote valley, along the banks of Craig's Creek, just north of Roanoke VA, the property includes mature hardwood forest, pasture, and an 1830s log cabin where we live. We love to share this special place with visitors, and have some basic amenities for campers. The campsites are at the edge of a large pasture and just a few steps from Craig Creek and our big swimmin' hole. Totally secluded in a remote valley - no houses or roads in sight (but our cabin is a short walk through the woods if you need something), no cell service for most providers, but within a short drive of Roanoke and Blacksburg, and countless outdoor recreation opportunities.

Beaverdam Falls

4 sites · Lodging65 acres · Covington, VA
Nestled on a private 65-acre farm in the Alleghany Highlands of Virginia, Beaverdam Falls is located on VA SR-311 (Kanawha Trail) in the Sweet Springs Valley. Nestled in the old community of Earlehurst, between Covington & Roanoke, Beaverdam Falls are an historic series of waterfalls on private property. The Falls are at the headwaters of Dunlap Creek and are the terminus for the Sweet Springs. Available for guest stays & recreation, are the Upper Falls portion. Surrounded by the verdant George Washington National Forest, the Upper Falls, displays a constant waterfall of around 40-feet in height, & decorates the final mile stretch of the Sweet Springs, both on our property. Additional beautiful cascades pepper our tract of Beaverdam Falls as well. This private tract of unparalleled Virginia countryside will simply astonish your expectations. As the source of the Falls, Sweet Springs Creek, serves as a long, unique home for trout, calcified travertine rock, chalybeate water, and ancient beaver dams (as well as active ones!). Beaverdam Falls is a rare place for the lack of stone and the centuries of beavers who have left their trace in & on our creek—and swamp, the Stick Marsh, which has an active beaver dam. Be careful! They do bite!

W.T. Farm?

6 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents300 acres · Union, WV
What makes W.T. Farm special is the diversity of textures of the landscape. We have great mountain top views, as well as, a deep holler with cliffs, rock outcroppings, and waterfalls. The fields are full of fruit and nut trees and there are 5 ponds. Each of these supports its own flora and fauna. I acquired stewardship of this land 35 years ago and have developed perennial orchards wherever possible. I started with pears and have branched out into pawpaws, apples, persimmons, currants, black walnuts etc. and I boast that I planted the first commercial hickory oil orchard in the world. I am an eccentric horticulturalist and graft cultivar varieties onto existing trees like oaks, hickories, black walnuts, and even the maligned invasive honeysuckle, autumn olive and multiflora rose. Just last year I bought an adjoining farm that opened up 50 acres of more orchard planting. It is on top of the mountain and offers an expansive view of the valley and ridge system that defines our region. Funny thing is that because the land between the old farm and the new farm is divided by cliffs in the holler the only way to get from one to the other is a 12 minute drive or vigorous hiking. On this new land is a historic log cabin I am renovating that is said to be one of the original settler's cabin on the mountain. Because of the amount of tree fruit I grow and the varied landscape, there is a rich diversity of birds and animals to be seen. One of my favorite walks is along the cliffs to the top waterfall where there is a sweet wading pool. I have also built a number of ponds and four of them are quite swimmable. One has a dock and is where we spend much summer time refreshing and frolicking. The farm is also a small (very small) licensed farm winery and we make and sell traditional hard cider from our apples and pears. Our cider can be purchased along with our nut oils and flours and other farm produce you may not be familiar with. We live to eat. Coming here is a gastronomical adventure! I run the Acornucopia project from here and from it we are developing a foragers network that would very much suit the lifestyle of hipcampers. We pay foragers for wild nuts they gather. Also often there is an opportunity to work on the farm harvesting and processing food. Let me know if that is something you would like to do. Treely Yours, Bill

Camp at Falls Ridge Nature Preserve

2 sites · RVs, Tents3 acres · Christiansburg, VA
Enjoy a relaxing retreat on a historic, riverfront property on a gorgeous nature preserve tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains! Located only 15 minutes from Virginia Tech, you’ll feel like you’re in another world. Our historic property dates back centuries. It was once a whistle stop for the railroad that still runs through it (Don’t worry! They don’t blow the train whistle!) and operated as a mill, general store, cannery, post office, and more. The property is adjacent to the Falls Ridge Nature Preserve, a hidden gem with miles of hiking trails, including waterfalls and caves. (Please note: the Nature Conservancy has temporarily closed Falls Ridge Nature Preserve for regrowth and repair after an extended period of high visitation and overuse during Covid. Check their website for latest info). Your campsite can be either in the back or the side of the cabin. We have a toilet and sink available but no shower. We also offer laundry for $5, and can accommodate large bedding items. We live at the front of the property in an 1830s log cabin we are fixing up. We can socialize or leave you alone, completely up to you! We have 2.5 acres adjacent to Falls Ridge Nature Preserve, situated on the North Fork of the Roanoke River. Please check the Preserve's website before booking as they have been temporarily closed for some post-lockdown regrowth. There are multiple hiking trails, caves, and waterfalls to enjoy. You can fish and wade and when the water is high enough, kayak. We are fifteen minutes from Blacksburg or Christiansburg and thirty minutes from McAfee's Knob (the most photographed spot on the Appalachian Trail). We offer kayak and float rentals for $10 each (we have two kayaks and floats to accommodate six). We can drive you to the New River for an excellent float or a more serious kayak with rapids for $30. We also can create VT tailgating packages, s'mores kits, Appalachian Trail slackpacking adventures, picnics and just about anything else you may want for an additional fee. Just ask! We are thirty minutes from the Appalachian Trail and Virginia's Triple Crown (McAfee's Knob, Dragon's Tooth, and Tinker Cliffs) as well as The Cascades and Jefferson National Forest. RV'ers: please note we have a small bridge that may be challenging for larger sizes. Moving vans and UPS trucks cross it no problem but longer vehicles may not want to consider it.
