An active hay field nestled between the river and the railroad.  A great place to enjoy some R and R.  We love to float the James and there is easy access to the river on our property.  A beautiful field as well as some trees for added shade. Fun to hear the trains and the water as you get amazing views of the night sky.

This one is on my favorites list 🙌
We thoroughly enjoyed the James River Depot. Great solitude and easy access to the water for the kids to play in and explore. Firewood add-on was perfect for us and having a bathroom nearby was a plus. As others have said there is a train track on the other side of the river as well as next to the road you come in on across the field, but our kids LOVE trains so it was a big win for them and honestly didn't bother us much. Every time one came through they ran to get to a spot to watch it go by. Couldn't have asked for a better stay and we certainly look forward to coming back again.

I had mixed feeling writing this review. This place is too amazing to share lol! But that's just me being greedy. This place is a little slice of heaven. I will be back.

Creek Camping !!
This space was insanely awesome! You’re perfecting nestled inside the tree line next to the river/creek. The campsite space is massive - two trails lead you to the other campsites located on either side of you and one leads you down to the river. There’s a rope attached to the tree so you can go swinging into the river. Two picnic tables were on this plot and a fire ring. We purchased additional fire wood hoping it would be dry but they were a little moist and wouldn’t ignite for roughly an hour. They just slow burned producing smoke which in turn helped us with the bugs. Once the wood dried out and the fire started, we became very cozy! The one thing that I would mention is the train tracks are roughly 400ft away from the lands and you hear it go by at least 3 times through out the night. However, we didn’t mind and slept pretty great!!

The sound of the river and crickets was deeply relaxing, wonderful view of the stars. The campsite was clean and flat. Nice spacing between sites. Our dog had the time of her life romping around and chomping sticks.
