Hilltop camping along the New River in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We have a 20 x 30 primitive camping site available, topped with mulch, a chiminea, and a picnic table. The site is surrounded by trees for hammocks and has room for 2 large tents. A fire ring is available for use 100 yards up the hill on a cleared knoll. Please note: The driveway is steep all-wheel or 4-wheel drive is needed for towed campers and camper vans. The driveway leads directly to the campsite. Our secluded 11-acre hilltop property lies just across Chestnut Hill Road from the New River. It is within walking distance of New River Outfitters where you can rent kayaks and canoes, or purchase a fishing license. The New River State Park is just 2 miles away for additional access to the New River and numerous hiking and nature trails. We are located 20 minutes from the charming town of West Jefferson in one direction and 20 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway in the other. The famous Motley’s BBQ restaurant is only 10 minutes away, and Thistle Meadow Winery is only a 15-minute drive away. Our goal is to provide a quiet, secluded spot for campers to enjoy the beauty of Western North Carolina. Our cleared knoll with a fire ring offers minimal light pollution for night star gazing. A walking trail circles the property and accesses the lower knoll. Enjoy the abundance of wildflowers as you search the wooded hillside for two rocky outcroppings that allow for beautiful views of the river. Welcome to bring all your furry family members, dog bowls can be provided at request. Firewood is available for scavenging throughout the property. A well-maintained and clean Porta Potty screened by a fence is available near the campsite.We have a 20 x 30 primitive camping site available, topped with mulch, a picnic table, and a chiminea.

This is a beautiful, private, spot and Anita is very helpful and communicative. Great setup for tent camping with close access to the New River, as well as driving distance from many other parks. On premise port-a-potty and fireplace were in great shape. Would recommend!

We loved camping here at Anita’s place! The site was easy to find and felt very secluded. I will say the driveway can be a challenge as stated in the listing if not an experienced driver and would recommend taking a 4wd/AWD if you have one. Everything was clean and well kept and Anita was very communicative and answered any questions we had promptly. Would absolutely stay here again!

Anita’s property was easy to access, quiet, and tidy. The portable toilet was super clean. I’d love to stay at this property again!

Beautiful little getaway. Such a quiet location with turkey, deer and squirrels wondering in the woods to keep you entertained. It’s an easy drive up a gravel road. The site has plenty of room to stretch out. And Anita is a wonderful host!

We just had a wonderful weekend at this site. Very private and well set up. Bathroom is clean and well serviced. The location is great. Quick access to great local fishing, hiking, and W. Jefferson and surrounding areas. Can't go wrong with this one.

Loved that it was just us! Tent area was large and level. Port a potty was conveniently close, but not in-your-face! Site is very close (driving) to one of the New River State Park sections. Lots of back roads to explore....
