Mane Gait is conveniently located right off route 81 and can accommodate large rigs. You won't find better views of the blue ridge mountains on this gorgeous working horse farm. We have hiking trails through beautiful private scenery for beginners to advanced hikers. Pets are welcome if leashed! Picnic area on site as well as laundry machine. We are 10 minutes from downtown historic Lexington Virginia that provides great restaurants and lots of history in the charming town of Lexington. Site 2 should be booked for smaller campers around 25 feet. Site 1 is better for larger campers.

Beautiful camp site
We loved tent camping at site 1. The views were great. We felt very safe. We enjoyed petting the horses. Everyone was friendly. This place is great for families and if you are visiting Lexington and/or Natural Bridge State Park.

Very nice and quiet
I really enjoyed walking the trails, the beautiful view and the tranquility! Know that you will camp next to the horse manure compost so yes it smells like manure so if this smell bothers you can take site 2 which is a little more distant.

Lovely site with tremendous views and a great night sky. Not far off 81 (but not too close), this was an incredibly convenient stop on our travels. Bathroom was a short walk away from the site. Sydney said there was a fire ban because of the winds, but the sky made up for that small disappointment. The horses provided a lovely backdrop and were very friendly. We would definitely come back!

The Best Camping Spot Near Lex
The view is absolutely spectacular! Got there on a very quiet late afternoon. When entering, keep going straight on that entrance driveway, past the turn off towards the big barns. (Just go till there is only grass). The closest spot to the end of the drive is 1, then each corner of the 2 barns is in chronological order. Spot 1 is a NEMA 14-30, spot 2 is NEMA 10-30, unsure about the rest, but I know 1-4 have electric. I really can’t stress enough how beautiful this spot is! The horses, the view, the quietness, the proximity to Lexington, it’s all just amazing!

Just right
It’s just what we needed !! A place to pitch a tent and they have restrooms close by. And the highway noise is barely noticeable. Would definitely stay here again.
