John is a very nice guy with a beautiful property! He was very accomodating to all our needs. Would recommend to anyone! Old rag is close by.

This place really is a gem. The campsites on John’s property are more secluded than NPS sites, and the other reviews are right, that is the cleanest looking (and smelling) privy I’ve ever seen. There was potable water, a tripod for campfire cooking, tons of firewood, and a little sink for hand washing. John was also extremely welcoming and friendly. Can’t wait to come back!

What a beautiful hidden treasure! This was our first time booking using hipcamp and John made the process easy and seamless. We had the whole area to ourselves so it was very peaceful. John was there for anything we needed and was kind enough to lend us some playing cards! We will definitely be back.

Great host, great campsite, and right next to Shenandoah National Park. I would absolutely go back and, in fact, I plan to!

Babbling Brook was the perfect quick weekend getaway for us. John's property is peaceful and beautiful. The set up John has created is very welcoming and the outhouse is by far the nicest I have ever used. We also really appreciated the trails we were able to take our older dog on around the property. In the morning, we were able to chat with John and his wife and they could not have been nicer. We will definitely be coming back for another stay!

It is a amazing property we had our section to ourselves and it was really beautiful. It also houses one of the most cleanest out houses I have ever been to. I definitely plan on coming back!

This campsite exceeded our expectations! It’s a beautiful spot and private…far enough away from the other campsite and the main house. It’s well laid out with comfortable ground and a nice fire pit. There’s also a well stocked fish pond with some paddle boats. There’s also a very clean (and surprisingly nice smelling) toilet with an outdoor sink. Only 20 minutes from old rag, but I’m hesitant to say that because then this place will be booked up all the time! 🤫

John has a beautiful property. It provides the perfect amount of privacy and accessibility needed for a great camping trip. John was a responsive host while also respecting our privacy while camping. The pond and trails were a huge plus for our dog!
