We have a 20 x 30 primitive camping site available, topped with mulch, a picnic table, and a chiminea. It is surrounded by trees for hammocks and has room for 2 large tents. A fire ring is available for use 100 yards up the hill on a cleared knoll.

Please Note: Our driveway is steep and 4 wheel drive is advised for towed and 5th wheel RVs.

Our secluded 11 acre hilltop property lies just across Chestnut Hill Road from the New River. It is within walking distance of the New River Outfitters where you can rent kayaks, canoes, or purchase a fishing license. The New River State Park is just 2 miles away for additional access to the New River and numerous hiking and nature trails.

We are located 20 minutes from the charming town of West Jefferson in one direction and 20 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway in the other. The famous Motley’s BBQ restaurant is only 10 minutes away, and Thistle Meadow Winery is only a 15 minute drive away.

Our goal is to provide a quiet, secluded spot for campers to enjoy the beauty of Western North Carolina. Our cleared knoll with a fire ring offers minimal light pollution for night star gazing. A walking trail circles the property and accesses the lower knoll. Enjoy the abundance of wildflowers as you search the wooded hillside for two rocky outcroppings that allow for beautiful views of the river.

Welcome to bring all your furry family members, dog bowls can be provided at request.

Firewood available for scavenging throughout the property.

Well maintained and clean Porta Potty screened by a fence is available near the campsite.

This was a great site, with super friendly hosts! We hammock camped, and it was perfect for that or tent camping! The location is super near a kayaking/canoeing outfitter and the state park, but is secluded enough to enjoy being in nature.

We got up the entrance just fine in our front wheel drive car, but we recommend all wheel drive or 4-wheel drive if it’s been raining!

Peaceful solitude at chestnut hill

If you’re looking for a private, peaceful spot to pitch a tent with immediate access to the New River, Chestnut Hill is a great spot.

During our stay at Chestnut Hill, my husband and I reposed in the quiet seclusion offered at this site. The tall, white pines on the property offered abundant shade during the afternoon, and were great for our hammock set-up.

The property was well-maintained, with a steep, rock/gravel road leading up to the campsite. Upon reaching the campsite, we had access to a picnic table, tent plot, benches, fire rings, chiminea, and a simple toilet facility.

The New River runs directly parallel to this property, and the New River Park is minutes away, so this location is fantastic if you’re planning on enjoying the river in any capacity.

My husband and I could have easily stayed longer at this Hipcamp. We greatly enjoyed our time here.
