We have a farmette between Abingdon and Damascus, VA that is located directly in the famous rails-to-trails Virginia Creeper Trail. We are also lucky enough to be on the South Fork of the Holston River which offers great canoeing and rafting! The Appalachian Trail runs right through downtown Damascus and we have hosted several Thru Hikers that have come to town for our annual Trail Days every May. We are a working hog farm that is low on the hustle and bustle but BIG on the hospitality!!

Valerie and Darren were absolutely gracious, welcoming, and friendly. Their space was our space. They met us in the driveway and immediately showed us around the farmette and camping locations. My 14 year old and I choose a shady spot near the back of the property well suited for our introvert personalities. Darren helped us get tinder, kindling, and firewood for a fire and helped us move a table closer to our spot. We were also invited to use as much as the space as we wanted. We were not limited to the shady location we chose.

One day my son was able to spend time with kittens too young to be adopted out yet. On our last full day one of the sows had piglets we were able to visit when they were just a few hours old. We waded/swam in the river and walked a small portion of the Creeper Trail, both of which were a two minute walk from the farm. Good drive to Elizabeton, TN, and only an hour drive from Banner Elk, NC. Absolutely would enjoy Valerie and Darren's hospitality again!

Nice shady campsite perfect for introverts.Perfect shady spot.George the kitten loved to perch on a shoulder.Hours old piglets!

Great location for taking advantage of the Creeper Trail , Damascus, and Abingdon. The hosts are great, very accommodating. For the price, you will have a hard time finding a better deal.

Darren & Valerie's place was a great spot to camp near Damascus and the Virginia Creeper trail. They are very gracious hosts and provided any thing we might have needed. The campsite is in their yard on a quiet country road with little noise and dark, open , beautiful sky. There is a fire pit and picnic table that you can use and it made for a great overnight stay for us.
They have a business making trail mix and jerky that our group and family would recommend that you try. Multiple types of meat/game animal with fruits and nuts mixed in. Good stuff for a day on the trail hiking or biking!

I would recommend their place to anyone needing a camp stay in this area of Virginia.
