Savage Acres on Craig Creek

6 sites 路 RVs, Tents120 acres 路 New Castle, VA
In a remote valley, along the banks of Craig's Creek, just north of Roanoke VA, the property includes mature hardwood forest, pasture, and an 1830s log cabin where we live. We love to share this special place with visitors, and have some basic amenities for campers. The campsites are at the edge of a large pasture and just a few steps from Craig Creek and our big swimmin' hole. Totally secluded in a remote valley - no houses or roads in sight (but our cabin is a short walk through the woods if you need something), no cell service for most providers, but within a short drive of Roanoke and Blacksburg, and countless outdoor recreation opportunities.

Beaverdam Falls

2 sites 路 Lodging65 acres 路 Covington, VA

Nestled in the old community of Earlehurst, between Covington & Roanoke, Beaverdam Falls are an historic series of waterfalls on private property. The Falls are at the headwaters of Dunlap Creek and are the terminus for the Sweet Springs. Available for guest stays & recreation, are the Upper Falls portion. Surrounded by the verdant George Washington National Forest, the Upper Falls, displays a constant waterfall of around 40-feet in height, & decorates the final mile stretch of the Sweet Springs, both on our property. Additional beautiful cascades pepper our tract of Beaverdam Falls as well. This private tract of unparalleled Virginia countryside will simply astonish your expectations. As the source of the Falls, Sweet Springs Creek, serves as a long, unique home for trout, calcified travertine rock, chalybeate water, and ancient beaver dams (as well as active ones!). Beaverdam Falls is a rare place for the lack of stone and the centuries of beavers who have left their trace in & on our creek鈥攁nd swamp, the Stick Marsh, which has an active beaver dam. Be careful! They do bite!

Why be Square?! Blue Ridge Yurt

2 sites 路 Lodging1 acres 路 Pilot, VA
Blue Ridge Yurts is a woman-owned company in Floyd, Virginia, started by my mother, Sharon. We were staying at Treebones, a yurt 'glampground' in Big Sur, California, and fell in love with yurts together. My mom said, "I think I could build one of these," and the company was born! She does all the woodworking, using sustainable practices, with locally-sourced wood, and her best friend Kathy does the fabric end of things. I was one of her early guinea pigs, and love my yurt property dearly <3 This 24' yurt sits on a beautiful private acreage off an end-state maintenance road, with biking and hiking trails just a 20 minute drive from the touristy town of Floyd, Virginia. There's a steam shower sauna, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a deck overlooking the mountains with a table and seating. Enjoy!

The Country, LLC

7 sites 路 RVs, Tents500 acres 路 New Castle, VA
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 鈥渁lways鈥 asking my parents if we were going to 鈥淭he Country鈥 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鈥檚 or The Country and you can guess which one we though would be the best! 馃槉 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鈥檛 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 best camping near Greenbrier State Forest guide

Overview

About

The highest peak in Greenbrier State Forest, Kate鈥檚 Mountain, is named for a woman who took her kid up to the mountaintop in 1756 for protection during a battle, so you can scale this 3280-foot high peak in honor of one hardcore lady! Killer views abound, overlooking the surrounding countryside of southern West Virginia. See if you can spot the heated pool, shooting range, archery field range, or frisbees flying through the air on the disc golf course. There are cabins and campsites for you to reserve, trails to hike or bike, and great bass fishing in the Greenbrier River. Also in the vicinity of Greenbrier is the town of White Sulphur Springs, home to the birthplace of American golf. This resort is well-known as a luxury hotel, but was revealed in the 1990s to be a former Cold War bunker! Set up as an emergency relocation center to house all members of Congress in the event of a nuclear attack, it鈥檚 now open for history buffs and the curious to snoop around.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Greenbrier State Forest is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural scenery is at its peak. Summer offers a full bloom of activities, though it can be quite busy. Winters are less crowded but prepare for chilly conditions.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast and dress appropriately for seasonal changes.
  • Be aware of park hours, typically from 8:30am to 5pm, and plan your visit accordingly.
  • Stay informed about any trail closures or area restrictions before your trip.
  • Ensure you have a map and understand the park's layout to maximize your experience.
  • Remember to pack essentials, including water, snacks, and a first-aid kit for safety.
