Perfect spot with no neighbors
Quiet spot you have to yourself with access to the James river. So much space to set up a tent and the covered shelter was a plus! Only other people we saw were kayaking/tubing down the river.

Gorgeous spot, would highly recommend! The fireflies and stars were amazing. Had no trouble getting in with 2wd minivan but could be harder if it just rained a bunch.

An absolute gem. Campsite sits right in front of the mountain ridge with beautiful fields around you. The river has a nice pebble beach with mountain tops on each side. The host is nothing but southern charm! He helped us find some bait around the river to use for fishing, which was perfect for hip level wading. Had a fire going for us when arrived and gave us some hike recommendations nearby. Would recommend!

Our recent camping trip was a hidden gem! Tucked away in privacy, it's perfect for families seeking tranquility. With easy access to the river, fishing and swimming were highlights. The attentive host added a personal touch, ensuring our stay was seamless. We're already planning our return trip; it's a must-visit for any outdoor-loving family!

Camping in the Shade by the River has become a tradition at this point - it’s a magical place and I highly recommend it. Terry is a great host and we will definitely be back. Thanks again Terry!
