We have 7+ very private acres along the North Fork of the Shenandoah River, which has been in our family for over 50 years and where we currently live. You will arrive at our house, and the campsite is approximately 150 yds down the river trail. The campsite is completely private from our house. There’s great fishing, hiking, kayaking and canoeing from the property and also plenty more nearby. We’re only a few miles outside of Strasburg which offers great antique shops, dining, and a brewery with live music on weekends. Three night maximum permitted. **Note that the North Fork is a shallow river with a slate bottom. If you plan to wade, fish or swim in the river, you may want to bring some sturdy shoes to wear in the river.Pitch your tent on a large 11x12’ platform only a few feet from the North Fork of the Shenandoah River. Enjoy peace and quiet, great fishing, kayaking and tubing, or just playing in the river. Complete privacy while camping, with small extra fees for use of our outdoor shower, kayaks and tubes and/or a shuttle up river, and even breakfast if you’d like (information on site).

Camp location is secluded down a trail adjacent to the Shenandoah River, you set your tent on a platform up about 6 feet off the trail. Very peaceful and quiet. Went for wildlife photography and saw plenty of species, from turkeys to bald eagles. Hosts were extremely friendly and helpful the entire time

What an exceptional location. You are quite literally on the river bank. Mary and John were excellent hosts and very quick with any communication. We will definitely go back soon.

River front retreat
Very nice river front retreat. Perfect space for a 2P free standing tent and small table. Will return.

Beautiful area with amazing hosts!
The area is beautiful and the site and the setup is so amazing also! Mary and John were both amazing and so helpful before during and after our stay. They gave extra directions to get to their place in case gps tried to lie to us🙃 and then when we arrived they were there to warmly great us and help us unpack our gear. We ended up having to cut our stay shorter than expected but we plan to stay with them when we come back to visit this area again next year!
