Berryville Berries

6 sites · RVs, Tents65 acres · Boyce, VA
We bought this little slice of heaven a little over a year ago. We decided to offer a small section of the land so folks could camp out by the creek and have a peaceful alternative to the cramped RV resorts that are nearby. We'll be growing pumpkins in summer/fall and we're starting the berry patches as well, but right now the produce isn't ready - so you'll have to enjoy the quaint Opequon Creek, quiet sites, and nearby tourist attractions. Ideal visitors will be self-contained units for short stays or just through-traveling. All sites are for dry camping so please be self-contained. We are just now starting this project and have decided to dive in a little earlier due to interested campers. Please be patient as we get this up and running. Email berryvilleberries@gmail.com with any questions. Hope to see you soon! Drive directly to your own private site near the quaint Opequon Creek. Picnic tables and fire rings are available at some of the spots (just ask if you need one, but some folks just bring their own) . You may use our clean porta-potties and trash cans as well. Please help us keep this creek-side berry and pumpkin farm clean and serene for all visitors. We're near I81, Rt 7, I66 and Rt 50/17, grocery stores, Civil War battlefields and so much. The creek is a rocky bottom watershed that flows into the Potomac River. We are just now opening this ground to campers, so please be patient while we work through the learning curve and do let us know if we can do anything for you. This is a DIY camp, not a "bougey" RV resort. You'll need to be self-sufficient. This place is ideal for through-travelers and folks staying for 1 to 3 days, but longer visits are allowed. Just keep in mind that this is simply a working farm, so resort-style campground activities do not exist here. Rather what you will find is serenity and easy access to fun places to visit, especially Civil War tourism and visits to DC and Harpers Ferry. **Please also note that dogs MUST BE LEASHED 100% of the time. If your pet is off leash even one time, you will be asked to leave with no refund - no exceptions.** Quiet, non-barking dogs are allowed to visit (sorry, just has to be said).

Sacred Roots Herbal Sanctuary

8 sites · Lodging, Tents32 acres · Shepherdstown, WV
Looking for a personal retreat or get away ? Escape to our beautiful, RUSTIC 32 acre wild homestead / farm. What do we mean by "rustic" ? The camping experience we offer is about unplugging from the modern world , getting back to basics, and re-connecting with the land. Our campsites do not have electricity and there is no wifi on the land. Campsites are nestled in the woods. So although your vehicle will be parked within 50 ft or so from site, you cannot pull directly up to the site because of the trees. Feel free to wander through the herb gardens, eat your meals in the garden pavilion (we have picnic tables there and hammocks), get your Zen on in the meditation hut , and stroll through the woodland medicine path where we grow endangered and at at risk plant plants. (Please note that the woodland medicine path goes to seed by the Fall and is usually munched down by the deer by then, but is still a nice short stroll in the woods). We love dogs...but please leave them at home.

It was run by a recluse, who was always on the move from the Revenuers. A revenuer went missing along Cedar Creek one moonlit night, never to be seen again. The bearded recluse who ran the still, owned two mules, and an old car frame without a motor. Those mules would pull him through the hollow, and up into the mountains, where the revenuers never found him. Some say on a cold, moonlit night, they’ve seen his two old mules, pulling an old car frame past Camp Cedar Creek.

Riverdale Farm

2 sites · Lodging35 acres · Capon Bridge, WV
Brand new custom high end "glamping" cabin nestled along the Cacapon River. Cacapon River is one of the cleanest rivers in West Virginia. The name Cacapon was given by the native americans for the healing aspects of the water. The cabin is located on the famous Riverdale Farm property that was home of Captain David Pugh. Captain Pugh was the last person to sign succession papers to make West Virginia a state. As we say, " West Virginia started here". The property was home of one of the first schools in West Virginia, the local post office and the Hook's Mill. People have traveled to this farm to enjoy camping and outdoor leisure since the 1830s. Come continue the tradition here.

The Byrd's Nest on the River

2 sites · RVs, Tents3 acres · Great Cacapon , WV
~ Voted West Virginia's No. 1 HIPCAMP, three years in a row!! ~ The Byrd's Nest is a river front, primitive campsite on the scenic Cacapon River in Great Cacapon, WV. The property is very secluded, but only 2 hrs from D. C. and Baltimore. The space can accommodate 5 tents comfortably or a few very small campers (w/o hookups). Please note- I only book one group at a time. You'll have plenty of privacy. Spend your day bird watching on the river deck, put up your hammock and chill, go hiking or mountain biking at Cacapon State Park, take the kayaks out and paddle around, go fishing, or take a float trip. I can provide info on put in/take out spots depending on how long you'd like to float. I have 3 tubes available for your use, and 3 kayaks, or BYO if you'd like to venture further outside of the property lines. There is one big fire ring for cooking and/or bonfires, along with a large stationary stand up charcoal camp grill. There is also a small shed down at camp that contains rope, tarps, shovel, shade tent, tackle box, extra torch fuel etc.. feel free to use use and put back and or/ contribute to it. :) This spot is close by to Berkeley Springs, Paw Paw Tunnel, Cacapon State Park, and other nature preserves. More hiking, biking, restaurants, spas, antiquing- all within a beautiful 20 minute drive if you wish to venture out. If I do not respond soon after your inquiry, it's because I am without reception. Even if your inquiry expires in 24 hours, I will still get back to you! Thanks in advance for your patience. There is a cabin on the property. I will more often be home than not, I will communicate with you about that around your stay. Sometimes I"ll come down to the river frontage if I drop in for a float. Also, we all get around on four wheelers and UTV's. So you will hear them from time to time. If I am home, please feel free to come up if you have any concerns/questions or to say hi! :) *Please note, you can normally get to this site without a 4 wheel drive vehicle. However, when the river is high it will sometimes flood the low water bridge where it crosses the Cacapon. If this is the case during your stay, there is a back way in over the ridge. You will absolutely need 4 wheel drive with clearance and it takes about 30 minutes longer and a sense of adventure- but you'll be rewarded with beautiful views and waterfalls at the switchbacks:) This route in is only an option when the bridge is flooded, as it is a private road that has many gates. I will provide all necessary information before your stay regarding projected river levels and directions. I will also offer a full refund if the bridge is impassable and you decide not to come. Sadly, the floating dock you see in the older pictures did not make it through the river ice last winter. However, the deck is now turned into another tent platform! In addition to that, there is now a 9x14 pavilion and a porta john for your use! *Please visit Cacaponriver.org prior to your stay for more info on our beautiful river:)
