Wild, Wonderful, Well-Equipped

· Berkeley Springs, Morgan, West Virginia
8 acres hosted by J D O.
Best in West Virginia: Finalist
Named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2023.
We have two little foothill ridges between Sleepy Creek (creek) and Sleepy Creek Mountain, divided by a wet-weather stream. Our home is on one ridge; your campsite is on the other. Our own home is built from the bones of a 19th century goat barn. The original early 19th century home still stands, although in a deteriorated state. We have great neighbors who let us use their land for hiking, exploring, and exercising the pups. We have all kinds of garden, firewood, chicken, goat, and other 'stuff' going going on around the place. Learn more about this land: Beautiful sunrises over Sleepy Creek Mountain. Sunsets over Cacapon Mountain. Large well-equipped site. Situated among mature Red, White, and Black Oak, Hognut and Shag Bark Hickory, Black Locust, Sycamore, and other beautiful hard and softwoods, is a huge tent pad (16x20), with a stick-fired rocket stove, fire pit with grill, picnic table, and a primitive camping toilet/shower tent setup. Dogs on leashes are cool. Wash water available from our tank when temperatures remain above freezing. Enjoy wildlife watching along our wet-weather streams, where we see deer, songbirds, foxes, turkey, box turtles, four kinds of woodpeckers, and frogs to name a few. Explore our 8 acres and our neighbor's 20+ with beautiful trails (connects eventually to Tuscarora Trail, but you won't have that kind of time!). 20 minutes drive to Hancock, MD C&O bike trail. 30 to Cacapon State Park. Just 12 minutes to beautiful Berkeley Springs where you'll find art, entertainment, and history.

Absolutely wonderful!!
JD was so warm and welcoming!! Loved the location of his camping set up, it was private in the woods and only about 10 Minutes into the town of Berkeley Springs! JD supplied us with EVERYTHING we could have needed and more. Water for drinking, washing and to put out the fire, a wash station, tables, a fire pit, cooking area- he even gave us eggs and had games we could play. Would love to go back for another weekend away in the woods!!

Doesn’t get any better
JD went out of their way to make us feel comfortable! In todays busy world making space for individuals accommodations if often an accessory. Josh and Dewey made us feel welcomed and appreciated. We were in town to look at properties and attend the Apple Butter festival and JD made it so easy to flex and move with our schedule. Not only that they were so open to sharing about their experiences and what to explore in the area. I cannot recommend they’re beautiful, comfortable, space enough. Fire pit, rocket stove, picnic table, fresh eggs? and good folks in a quiet tree lined enclave :-)

Great camping near Berkeley Springs
J and D's campsite was amazing! Loved that it was a short drive to Berkeley Springs for fun activities (including the Apple Butter Festival when we were there) and grocery shopping, but was enough off the beaten path to feel immersed in nature for the true camping experience. The site was well cared for, clean, and had nice touches like a mini wood-burning camp stove, which we used to make coffee in the morning. Dewey even brought us freshly cut flowers, eggs, and tomatoes/peppers from his farm. Would recommend this site for others and hope to return in the future!

Well-equipped is right!
J & D are so sweet and generous! They were more than accommodating after a couple glitches in our plans, and even shared fresh eggs and Green beans and peppers with us. There were cute cut flowers on the picnic table, a potty and solar shower, and the sandy tent pad was a really nice treat. It was chilly and rained all night and in the morning they offered (and we accepted!) hot coffee and a yummy breakfast. We had no idea it was a big festival weekend, so we felt extra lucky to find such a sweet spot. 10/10 class act yall. Thank you so much!

Dewey’s land was perfect! When we arrived, he had a lovely bouquet of fresh herbs and flowers centered on the table. He even shared some tomatoes from his garden and eggs from his hens with us. He gave us a brief history of the land and showed us how to work everything. We had our privacy, but Dewey used the app to check on us and make sure we had everything we needed. We will be going back for sure, everything was great.
