Star Hosts are highly rated, responsive, and committed to providing incredible experiences.
In a remote valley, along the banks of Craig's Creek, just north of Roanoke VA, the property includes mature hardwood forest, pasture, and an 1830s log cabin where we live. We love to share this special place with visitors, and have some basic amenities for campers. The campsites are at the edge of a large pasture and just a few steps from Craig Creek and our big swimmin' hole. Totally secluded in a remote valley - no houses or roads in sight (but our cabin is a short walk through the woods if you need something), no cell service for most providers, but within a short drive of Roanoke and Blacksburg, and countless outdoor recreation opportunities.

It was a wonderful stay! Great location, quiet, but just close enough to nearby sites a single individual feels comfortable. The creek was beautiful and so relaxing to hear. Awesome campfire spot! Wonderful soft footing, great for going barefoot!

The campsite was cozy. Plenty of foliage around the camp site; trees, saplings, grass, field, shady dried creek bed, and a clean flowing creek that meets the rocky side of a foothill. clear night sky, picnic table, large firepit, soft/rich dirt, and a mixture of native birds

Savage Acres: Maple Knoll
Ned’s a good guy
Savage Acres is so great. It’s beautiful and shady and the creek is cold and fun, all levels of water as you walk up and down it. Ankle deep to around 5 feet in the parts we tried. There was one deep spot we didn’t try that may have been deeper. It had a picnic table and fire pit and maple knoll has lights in the trees you can plug in. It was adorable. And Ned is such a good person. I was camping alone with 3 of my daughters and ended up with a flat tire. He changed it for me in the dark at 10:30 at night because he had to work the next day. He saved us. I hadn’t seen a tire changed since I was a teenager, I thought the jack inside the wheel well was parts of the car and it must not have come with one because we bought the car used. Verizon has zero service there, I had no idea what I was going to do. I can’t say enough good things about Ned. 🤩

Fantastic spot!!
My fiancé & I tent camped here & absolutely LOVED it!!!! We were road tripping & booked this spot 30 mins prior to arriving. The hosts of this location are fantastic!! They meet you at the entrance and point you to your spot. Serene doesn’t even begin to explain how incredible this spot was! The river is blue, clear & felt amazing!! They warn you about poison ivy, but they did an excellent job at cutting it back and clearing it from around the campsites! Hopefully you stay there a night that the sky is clear because stargazing from their property is phenomenal!! 10/10!! Perfect spot for when you’re on the go & don’t want to stay at a recreational camping area.
