Come visit the farm and stay with us! We have primitive tent camping, RV sites, and a cozy little cabin. Blackwater Birds and Bees is a developing farm that started in 2016. If you're looking for privacy, you won't find a better place in Southeastern Virginia. It's over 100 acres on the Blackwater River with access to over 2 miles of waterfront without leaving the property. The river is much like a cypress swamp with large channels running through the middle and it creates a perfect environment for all kinds of spectacular wildlife. We have kayaks and canoes available for campers to use for free and a Jon boat with trolling motor available for rent. Fishing is permitted in our large pond and on the river. The farm currently features an apiary, vegetable garden, blueberry bushes, and animals including ducks, chickens, geese, and goats. The cabin features a full-size bed complete with linens/bedding as well as a sleeping loft for 2 additional guests. While the cabin does not have electricity or plumbing, it does have battery operated lights and an outhouse with flush toilet on site for the convenience of cabin guests. We have a farm shop stocked with local products, camping essentials, fishing gear, and much more! *If you are bringing a large camper or RV please pick site #3 or site #2.*Site #4 is about 75 yards into the woods away from the parking space.* Check us out on Instagram @blackwater_birds_and_bees

Beautiful property. There were other campers at some of the sites but site #2 had plenty of privacy. I highly recommend this campground and look forward to returning in the future.

Great place
Birds & bees was even better than the website promised. Great campsite & fireplace, wood delivered, fishing galore, and absolutely pitch black at night. Highly recommended.

The Blackwater Bungalow
Best Glamping Experience
We loved staying at the Blackwater Bungalow. This was our 2nd time at this Hipcamp. The first time was a tent camping at a tent site. We were so comfortable at our bungalow. The bed was cozy and warm. There is battery-powered lights we used inside. The outdoor kitchen and flushable toilet was so convenient. The fire pit and picnic table were on the perfect spot facing the beautiful lake view. This was the most relaxing camping experience we ever had. We used the boat to go around the lake. We did not see any beavers but we saw turtles and ducks. We went for a nice hike around the large hipcamp land and saw a group of boy scouts in one tent site and 2 other campsites were also occupied. We were situated so far from each other that we had our own privacy. The weather was perfect. This was so relaxing and we needed it to de-stress from our busy work life. The hosts as always were very informative and quick to respond to our needs. Thank you James and family.
