In 1831 formerly Northern's Mill had an old mill house, dwelling house, outbuildings, mill pond and water courses with about 31 acres and was bought for an enormous amount of $10.00!   At the working mill the owner's wife baked pies for the workers to enjoy while they waited for their ground grains (most likely corn, soybeans and wheat).  The pond is also recognized as Courtney Mill Pond and Kissinger Mill Pond.  Fires in the 1980's have claimed the building creating a perfect place for you to enjoy nature outside. Learn more about this land: Brand new to welcoming campers. Fresh and salt water surrounds a birding, fishing paradise with 5 acres to explore. Bald Eagles are a common siting. We offer a primitive camping experience in the heart of the Northern Neck.  This historical site had a working Mill built in the early 1800's. Please check out my friend's place nearby at Callao Brewery and Rivah Vineyards at the Grove!  Grab some fresh local veggies from one of the Amish stands and don't forget your tackle and bait at RW's. Camp 1 has the most room for car camping and groups close to the road and overlooking the pond. Camp 2 is a short hike to a private knoll overlooking the grassy marsh of Mill Creek, this is tidal water that flows to the Potomac. Welcome to Gratitude!

Susan has a wonderful plot of land. We stayed in our van but if we brought our tent there is a great spot down the trail. Wish we had a little more time. Would have been nice to get the paddle boards out on the river that runs through camp.

Wonderful experience!
Susan was so accommodating of our group and easy to work with/eager to help and provide suggestions for the local area. The views of the pond and creek are beautiful and the campsites have plenty of shade. We heard and saw many egret and herons, and when we took the paddle boards out on the creek and out to the river we saw a bald eagle, beaver, fish, turtle, and other birds. It was incredibly quiet and peaceful other than the wildlife! The campsite is on a back road, but the road was closed to through traffic due to damage from a recent storm. I imagine even with the road open, there wouldn’t be much traffic except for the occasional fisherman. We will definitely return the next time we are in the area! Thanks again Susan for sharing your special spot with us!

Had a great time here. Despite being unprepared for some heavy rain couldn’t beat the atmosphere. Perfect place to hang out and unwind. Short walk in to campsite about 40yrds but nothing difficult. Susan was kind, accommodating and easy to reach with questions.

Peaceful and Relaxing Stay
I had a wonderful weekend at Gratitude at the Mill Pond! Very private, peaceful and clean. Great views and the tree cover even kept most of our stuff dry when it rained overnight. I recommend staying here!
