Proud Veteran owned and operated business! Our farm is located within Jefferson National Forest in Craig County Virginia and one of the most scenic in our state. We have about 500 acres and only groomed camp spots with the closest two being 350 yards apart, so privacy is not a concern and what you will get. All but one of our spots are directly beside a crystal-clear creek (Johns Creek) and the other is nestled in the woods at the end of a field beside one of our ponds. Wildlife abounds at all spots, we even have Bald Eagles that are on our farm everyday. Once you see and experience our farm, we know you will absolutely love your decision for choosing us to stay with. We are very close to great hiking and biking as well. Only mins away from Virginia's Triple Crown of Hiking including McAfee Knob (the most photographed spot on the entire Appacian Trail). How The Country, LLC got its name: Being raised in Roanoke VA, I was “always” asking my parents if we were going to “The Country” where my grandparents lived in what we now call our little slice of heaven. After spending over 30 years away in the USAF (WTH...POL!!!), we returned home and couldn't wait to find a way to let others enjoy all our farm and the place I have always loved more than anywhere in the world! When trying to come up with the name, it came down to Granny and Granddaddy’s or The Country and you can guess which one we though would be the best! 😊 Portions of our farm are in its 5th generation (me) of ownership, and I hope it stays in our family for many years to come. That my friends is how and why "The Country, LLC" came to be and got its name! We will do everything we can to make your stay, no matter how long or short a special one! We pride ourselves in customer service, privacy, settings. You won’t find what we have anywhere else!!! Check us out on Facebook or call for more details, and book a reservation with us! We can't wait to see you and we're sure you will love it!

The Pond
If you are looking for privacy and solitude within a beautiful setting, the Pond is waiting for you. This camp site sits in the edge of the woods just above a small quite pond. The only sounds were the cackling ravens by day and the songs of coyetes at night. Loved looking for the shooting stars at night and just taking in the celestial view while basking in the warmth of our camp fire. There were hiking trails near this site that took us along the Jefferson National forest. The forest here were so nice as there was not much underbrush and you could see into the woods. Bring your own privy for this site or take the 3/4 mile hike to the porta john. My family and I camp 5 to 8 times a year, but have grown weary of the noise and lack of camping etiquette in camp grounds. I wanted to try a HipCamp and sure glad I did. And the Country was a great find, 6 sites on 500 acres!!!!! Dean and Roscoe the dog were awesome host. We were able to visit the other camp sites located along the stream prior to other guest arriving. These sites were very nice as well. Looking forward to booking one of these sites next spring. This was just an awsome place for that true camping experience. Many thanks to Dean and his wife for sharing their gorgeous property with us!!!

Excellent, private, scenic camping
Mr and Mrs Abbott are very organized, communicative, accommodating, helpful (including an early Saturday morning jump start), and inviting. Also, this is the most private camping spot I have ever been to. Lastly, all sites are right on the banks of John’s Creek. Stay here!

Camping on the river!
My family & I tent camped on the river, & we had a BLAST. The fishing was definitely the best part! And All of his campsites are in fantastic locations! We came for the weekend and ended up broke down with 2 flats- Dean & his wife were absolutely wonderful & MORE than accommodating. If it wasn’t for him we would have been broke down with 2 kids & 2 flat tires all night. 10000/10 would recommend and we will definitely be back very soon!! Thank y’all!

A long weekend in paradise
This site was perfect! It’s very private, right on the river, and Dean & Dana were amazing hosts. Sites are so spaced apart you’ve definitely got freedom and we never once heard anyone else- but it was also nice to not be 100% secluded. We spent a nice chunk of time enjoying the stars & lightning bugs that took over the field every night- which we rarely get to experience living in the city. Fairly certain our dogs were convinced they were in actual heaven. Bring a float and tie yourself to a tree, you won’t regret it. We’ll be back!

Tiny House (Camp, Fish, Swim)
We really enjoyed our stay at Tiny House. It was peaceful and secluded. Definitely worth the price to not have neighbors right on top of your site. Dean stopped by for a little chat, which was nice. He gave us some recommendations on hiking and some forest service roads to drive. We ended up taking Tub Run Rd. It was a pretty and windy 14 miles, no big views, but an enjoyable ride. Must be in an off-road capable vehicle. Otherwise we just enjoyed hanging out in the water and around the campsite. It was nice to have the metal table and chairs already there. We’ve already talked about going back again. Thanks for a peaceful getaway!

Peaceful camping
Great scenery. Mountain views from the creekside campsite. Plenty of room to spread out and the next campsite was well over 125 yards away. Dean was a great host and was even able to help supply some extra firewood at the last minute since I burned through more than expected. Roscoe is a good helper for Dean so bring some extra dog treats for the little guy.

Dean was a gracious host and made sure we were all squared away as soon as we got there. The site was perfect right next to a refreshing creek with lots of amazing scenery. We are already planning our next trip out there! Thanks Dean!

Beautiful site. Friendly hosts!
This is a beautiful site. It is secluded and private. The surround scenery is gorgeous! The stream running next to the site looked so inviting. Unfortunately, we were plagues with terrible weather when we went and were unable to enjoy all that the site has to offer. The hosts are friendly and helpful. They provided a great list of fantastic hikes nearby.

Atop Henderson Hole was such a neat camping experience. It was so private and so beautiful. We stayed for only 2 nights, but I wish we had had one more! It was a great spot to watch the sunset and then admire the stars. I would love to come back sometime!

Country Gem
This spot was beautiful. Great views across the whole cattle farm, stunning sunset, and incredible stars. One of the biggest draws for us was how private the sites were- you could not see another campsite if you tried. The host Dean and his wife were very kind, answered any questions and gave us some info on some great regional adventures. This campsite is a gem, hope to come back soon!

I dont think i have ever seen that many stars and it was like you could reach up and touch them! Dean and his wife keep the place super clean and are great hosts. I would definitely stay again.

A must visit place & awesome host.
In brief, IT WAS A GREAT PLACE ! To start with Dean was best host, I have ever met. He and his family are totally into this. They gave all necessary instructions to enjoy to the fullest at their place. From multiple sites, we got the best one. Which has awesome view with creek, mountains and farm infront. Plan accordingly and you could experience stargazing. Dean helped us for our hiking near by. Took care visiting couple of times. His grand daughter is cherry one cake, she was the cute little host. All great experience, must visit campsite.

We loved our stay! It's a beautiful place and friendly hosts - we would happily come back! We saw bucketlist birds, made a delicious campfire breakfast, and slept next to a babbling stream...absolute heaven. Thank you for opening your land to guests, it was a treat!

Definitely Recommend
huge piece of land with campsites far enough away from each other that your glad you chose this spot over the cramped state parks. Meandering flowing creek to cool off in on a hot summer day. Dean was a great host. No doubt we plan on making it back to his property again. Thanks Dean!
