Situated at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains and bordering the Jefferson National Forest, Thunder BRidge has scenic, large, private tent sites and cabins in the woods for those who want to experience camping at its finest. Many of the sites border Elk Creek. Our RV sites are large, flat and at the edge of the forest in a well kept open green space. Our 100 acres was originally a camp built by the Civilian Conservation Corp in the "30s and early '40s, then a boys' juvenile detention center and Big Brothers'/Big Sisters' camp, which closed in 2009. The tent sites and cabins are in the forest, away from the buildings out front, but you're free to walk around and check out the historic site. We'd like to share the camp with others and see it come back to life. All within a short driving distance are the Natural Bridge, wineries, breweries, Natural Bridge Zoo, Safari Park, Dinosaur Kingdom, Appalachian Trail, Blue Ridge Parkway, James River, historic Lexington, Devil's Marbleyard, Glenwood Horse Trail, swimming holes, etc. We have river access 2 miles up the road if you'd like to fish or put your kayak or canoe in. Truly, there is something nearby for everyone. We'd be happy to give you recommendations of things to see and do.

Wonderful visit. Would recommend.

RV Site 1
Beautiful site - as described
Everything was as described. The wifi worked well. The RV sites are more "field" than "forest". The tent sites are all in the woods and looked really nice. Adam (camp host) was friendly and helpful. It felt private and peaceful (we were the only RV campers so it might be different with neighbors). We were able to visit the artist studios during an event on Saturday. We had power and water, two picnic tables (one on each side), and a fire pit. Dump station was easily accessed and had water hookups for rinsing. Overall pleased with our experience. We enjoyed hiking back into the property where we got a nice creek view experience.

Site 2 (aka Bunny 3)
Falling leaves 🧡💛🤎
Site 2 / Bunny 3 was a great site for me! Close to bathhouse but still private. The gentle percussion of falling leaves sounded like a rainstick. It was very relaxing. Adam was a great host, friendly and responsive. Would love to return to this cool campground.

Site 1 (aka Woodpecker 1)
We could not have asked for a better camping experience! The campsite was just remote enough, clean, and not close to other campers on the property. Adam was a great host. We will absolutely be back. Highly recommend!!
