Come enjoy a peaceful stay at Longview Retreat. Beautiful panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and access for tent campers (our RV spots should reopen later this summer for dry camping!)

Experience Davis Creek, woods, pastures, and miles of dirt roads for biking/hiking. Just minutes from the Nelson 151 Craft Beverage trail (over 15 family friendly breweries/winers) and right across the street from Woodridge Farm Brewery. Public access to the Rockfish River available 1 mile away. Charlottesville is an easy 25 minute drive. 

UPDATE as of 4/1/2022: Only two of our areas are currently open for camping as we work on fencing and brush clearing in the other two. Check out the map in Images to see each site.

AVAILABLE

Sandy Bottom: most space, access to Davis Creek, parking at site

Crawfish Creek: most secluded/quiet, park on road

CURRENTLY CLOSED

Sunset Ridge: best views, only spot for RV's, parking at site

Hidden Hollow: most wooded, parking at site

-----------------

This is a working farm, home to both Livestock Guardian Dogs as well as resident dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens and various livestock. If you choose to bring your dog/s, please let us know when booking. You should NOT bring your dog/s if they are high-strung, overly sensitive, aggressive, or not trained. Our livestock guardian dogs are hard-wired to protect so if they sense an uncomfortable vibe from another dog, it will make them uncomfortable and they need to be focused on doing their jobs.

Safety, privacy and environmental impact is very important to us. We require a minimum of 50 feet between each campsite. Please contain all trash, human waste and canine waste and pack it out with you when you leave. Be kind to the areas in which you camp, as they are home to many wildlife, native trees/shrubs/plants and in some cases, food for horses and cows (hay fields). 

Each site is provided a fire pit and we sell firewood.

There is so much to enjoy on the farm, but you are also incredibly close to many amazing places such as:

Wood Ridge Farm Brewery

Public Access to Rockfish River

Nelson Lake

151 Craft Beverage Trail

Wintergreen Resort

Charlottesville/UVA

Forget something? There is an Exxon gas station with a convenience store and prepared foods less than .5mile from the entrance to Longview Retreat.

This place is so simple, if you like basic camping primitive sites this is it. But let me tell you this place has a lot of potential and these folks will just continue to improve this experience. They are easy to work with. I loved to hear the water in the stream as I sat in my chair or laid in my tent !! Wow

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, Tim! We hope you’ll come back. We plan to add picnic tables and more fire rings, as well as better signage and entrances to each field this summer - if there’s anything in particular you think would add value let me know so we can work on it!!

Had a great stay here! Longview Retreat is very conveniently located near the 151 attractions as well as the whole Ivy/Afton/Western Albemarle area. Was easy to find and there are several nice sites to choose from - from views to fields to wooded. A couple of pretty creeks running through the areas too. Hosts were super responsive and helpful.
