Awesome area and convenient location, I took my truck on a couple trails and the area and Justin let me know about an area called Finwick mines day use area, where I was able to fish and see some wildlife. The campsite was awesome and has everything you need for a longer trip and Justin was very accommodating

The Fire Pit At Stone Soup
This is a lovely place to camp. The fire pit is like something out of Game of Thrones, and while it’s near a road very few cars pass by so you mainly hear the wind through the trees and the creek in the background. Another plus is there isn’t a lot of thick, tall grass so it’s not a very welcoming environment for ticks. The fact that it’s a single campsite means no neighboring campers which is also nice. There were only three of us but you could easily make it a group outing with some friends, there’s enough room on the benches around the fire pit and there are two covered picnic tables. Justin came by to introduce himself and he was super nice - rare for any campground or Hipcamp host to offer the firewood for free. Even though we are from nearby Roanoke we found a new favorite breakfast spot nearby called the Pine Top with biscuits as big as your head. Just make sure you charge your devices and bring a big jug of water since there’s no electrical hookup or potable water. And if you have Verizon download any music or maps etc. before you go because there is no service in the area.

Justin has done an amazing job with the trails and location. Tent camping with plenty of privacy and room for the dogs to play. We saw an eagle and listened to the owls at night. Justin is a great host and we hope to be back soon.
