Enjoy complete serenity on 95 acres that's only 25 minutes from downtown Charlottesville. Lower Sherwood Farm is a privately-owned working llama farm with rolling pastures and glimpses of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Lower Sherwood Farm is steeped in history, with activity on the site dating back to before the American Revolution. The farm has been owned and operated by Paige McGrath and her family since 1986. They chose llamas because they wanted to raise an animal that wasn't intended for slaughter. Specializing in show and breeding stock, Paige has produced some of the nations top llamas, and has since branched out into yarns, llama treks and other specialized agritourism activities. Steven joined the farm in 2017, and continues to run the farm after Paige passed away from cancer in 2022. Campers can pitch their tent in our hay fields, and enjoy access to our three-season show barn with bathroom, and hot and cold running water available from our well. You can hike with our llamas, or bring your own horses and walk on our wooded trails Be prepared for big sky: If you're lucky, you'll get a cloud-free night with virtually no light pollution. Great stargazing! Scottsville (and the James River) and Monticello are 15 minutes away; The University of Virginia, and downtown Charlottesville are 25 minutes; Wintergreen Resort is an hour away. Lots of great wineries, cideries and breweries within 15 minutes. The perfect location for a fun family outing or a romantic getaway.

Beautiful setting, peaceful!
A beautiful property! The host was friendly and helpful. Well-groomed trails and campsites. We had a great spot next to a pond with a view of the llama pastures. Both pond campsites are quite sloped, so bring leveling gear if you have a trailer and intend to reserve one of those spots.

Hay Field - Site 3
Steven was super responsive. This was our first time camping with our puppy and Steven and Creighton (who works there) were awesome. The bathroom was great. The trails on the property were nice and the animals were cool. Would recommend.

Camping out with llamas
We had a fantastic time camping here. The space is beautiful and open and the night sky was beautiful. We went for a llama walk with Steven in the morning and had so much fun. We look forward to returning and checking out some of the other campsites!

Otter Pond - Site 1
Wonderful locale, great experience!
A simply lovely stay at Llama Paradise! Steven was a fantastic, kind host. He gave us the full rundown of our site (#1, by the beautiful tree) and the barn & its amenities. After setting up, he kindly agreed to have us meet the animals. You can tell that Steven truly cares about these gentle creatures and gives them a great life. We thoroughly enjoyed tent camping that evening and morning at the farm. Couldn't recommend more highly!
