A World Away Farm:Serenity + nature

14 sites · RVs, Tents40 acres · Elkwood, VA
The land was marched across by Civil War soldiers on ther way to Gettysburg. They were on their way from Brandy Station to cross the Rappahannock River at Kelly's Ford. Much later there were horses in the fields, a well and spring were hand dug, a pond created and slowly buildings were built and expanded, but no barns as it was not really farmed. This meant no chemicals have been used on the land for over 60 years and perhaps ever. The plan is to keep it organic, but do something with it. Ideas are welcome. Relic hunters have found confederate bullets, a belt buckle and an early 1900 Ford logo. Fresh eggs and seasonal vegetables maybe available. Indoor games, frisbees, and horseshoes as well as paper for fire starting in the bathhouse. Nearby Activities under 15 miles- April: Gnarley Hops and Barely Fest- craft beer festival May - October: Sundays Flying Circus stunt shows with Biplane rides offered August: Hot Air Balloon Fest September: Hop N Hop Block party- music and BBQ October: Culpeper Air Fest, free, 2 miles, stunts and precision flying, WWII planes, Harrier Jet and more. Day Trips: Washington DC by car, Amtrack or catch the VRE in Manassas, Oatfields Plantation; Skyline Drive; Monticello; Mt Vernon; Williamsburg; Frederick, MD, Harper's Ferry, WV Civil War Sites: Brandy Station and the Graffiti House, Wilderness, Chancellorsville, Cedar Mountain, Fredericksburg, Manassas, Ox Hill.

The best camping near Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park guide

Overview

About

Portions of four major Civil War battlefields call this National Military Park home. These verdant, rolling pastures and lush river valleys saw some of the bloodiest battles of the war. Signs point the way for self-guided tours among the battlefields.

During the summer, Park Rangers lead groups on hikes through several areas. See the spot where Gen. Stonewall Jackson received his fatal bullet wound from friendly fire in 1863. (Fellow Confederates who thought he was an enemy scout in the darkness.)

In the Battle of the Wilderness, both sides fought to a draw. Five generals died during the two-day battle. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant vowed to fight on to Richmond, even though he faced long odds in May of 1864. Make sure to check out any special events or re-enactments happening at any of the four battlefields.

Aside from walking trails and historic towns, these battlefields put you in the throes of some of the most intense fighting of the war. More than 15,000 Americans died here, with 85,000 men wounded. This relatively small area is the bloodiest ground in the United States in terms of casualties. The four battles occurred over a two-year period as Union commander tried again and again to reach the ultimate prize: Richmond, the capital of the Confederacy. These sites put the struggles of American into perspective.

Several campsites near this park offer a place for a base camp to explore these historic sites and attractions. Recreational activities along the Rappahannock River abound, while Fredericksburg is just a short way from Mount Vernon and Washington DC.
