This is a working farm, home to both Livestock Guardian Dogs as well as resident dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens and various livestock. If you choose to bring your dog/s, please let us know when booking. You should NOT bring your dog/s if they are high-strung, overly sensitive, aggressive, or not trained. Our livestock guardian dogs are hard-wired to protect so if they sense an uncomfortable vibe from another dog, it will make them uncomfortable and they need to be focused on doing their jobs.
Safety, privacy and environmental impact is very important to us. We require a minimum of 50 feet between each campsite. Please contain all trash, human waste and canine waste and pack it out with you when you leave. Be kind to the areas in which you camp, as they are home to many wildlife, native trees/shrubs/plants and in some cases, food for horses and cows (hay fields).
Each site is provided a fire pit (upon request) and we sell firewood.
There is so much to enjoy on the farm, but you are also incredibly close to many amazing places such as:
Wood Ridge Farm Brewery
Public Access to Rockfish River
151 Craft Beverage Trail
Forget something? There is an Exxon gas station with a convenience store and prepared foods less than .5mile from the entrance to Longview Retreat.
Nelson, Virginia, United StatesTraditional, ancestral territory of Monacan, Shawandasse Tula (Shawanwaki/Shawnee), and Occaneechi First Nations according to To respect the Host's privacy, the precise address of this land will be provided after booking

Sunset Ridge: Site 2
We absolutely loved this campsite! The views are GORGEOUS, and it was so peaceful and secluded. We did the infamous Nellysford brewery and winery trail, and were so excited by how close this property was to everything we wanted to do on our trip. Cory and Lisa were very nice and easy to communicate with, and we will absolutely camp here again.

LongView Farm Camping
Perfect place to camp with toddler
We had a great time camping at Cory and Lisa's farm. We brought out 16 month old and our dog and they both loved the wide open space but we also felt very letting them explore. It was very warm and I rented the pop up tent right before we arrived and Lisa brought it as we arrived. Their kids made our son a coloring kit with water color paint and crayons which was so sweet. We had dinner at the brewery across the road which was amazing. We also loved exploring the property and hanging out at the creek. We can't wait to come back
