Car camping in fall colors
Beautiful patch of land with a short walk to the water. We really enjoyed our time here and would reccomend it.

The hosts were very friendly and helpful! I wasn’t so sure about driving my car down to the site and they offered to let me use a wagon to haul my gear down. The water was great and overall it was a very relaxing trip. I will definitely be back!

My friends and I had a nice time at Riverside Camp. The weather was definitely on the cold side, but we came prepared with ample firewood. The site sits across the water from the Chicamuxen Wildlife Management Area, and we were treated to the sounds of many animals throughout the weekend, including bald eagles, hawks, owls, shrieking foxes and even howling coyotes at night. I didn't do any fishing on this trip, but I imagine it's pretty good in the warmer months. On site is a fire ring, table and Adirondack chair available for use. There is also a well-kept porta-john nearby! A huge plus about this site is that it's only an hour or less from DC! I'll be adding this one to my list of go-to's, for sure.

A wee slice of paradise!
I camped right on the bank of the Potomac and a flock of chatty ducks kept me company all weekend. There is long pier, more scenic than utilitarian. The portapotty was tidy and conveniently located. The owner gave me a warm welcome and helped me navigate the little hill down to my site. There was a table, an Adirondack chair and a firepit. She also provided wood. There were kayaks available to take out for a paddle. Bald eagles soared right over my head. It was a peaceful place for a weekend escape and I highly recommend it.

The drive to the property is somewhat secluded, but definitely manageable for most cars. We pulled up to the barn per their instructions and were met shortly thereafter by one of the owners who showed us to our camp. We were able to back in pretty close to camp but please note I would only recommend this part if you have a 4x4 vehicle. Also there was some thorny brush so maybe keep that in mind if you care about your paint job. There was another camper nearby but we were separated by trees and never really saw them. They do have a launch for your kayak but we were able to launch directly from our campsite as well. I tried to fish from the bank a bit but would get snagged on low hanging branches every now and then. Your casts would need to be perfect. A lot of weeds in near the bank but my son and I caught a few good sized catfish. I saw several other fisherman on the water so it looks like overall this is a popular spot known for fishing. The camp also has a fire ring and fold out table which was nice. I would definitely come back and would recommend this site to anyone looking for a weekend getaway.
