My wife and I stayed for two nights to celebrate our 19th weddibg anniversary away from everybody :). Molly's spot was absolutely gorgeous! The tent situation was perfect: comfy bed with blankets, pillows, remote controlled lights, end tables, and it was all very clean. My wife took a picture of the port-o-john to send to friends because it had cute decorations and was very clean. The view of the river and small pond was picturesque. We did a lot of fishing and caught lots of bass and sunfish. We took in the nearby town of Woodstock and tried many of Molly's suggestions which all worked out great: Woodstcok Cafe, Woodstock Tower, and Seven Bend Park. Molly also did an amazing job of being available if needed but for the most part left us alone to enjoy it all. I would recommend to all we know and come again in the future!

Being right on the river was great! The covered pavilion made food prep and eating stress-free. The dogs loved exploring and swimming. The tent is nice, a bit hot in the afternoon—our portable fans helped. Molly is a fantastic host and gave us great recommendations for food, drink and exploring the area. We’ll be back!

Serenity on the Shenandoah.

Black Bear has a picturesque overlook of the river which is just right for sitting and napping. The rock jettie is ideal for fishing or launching a kayak/tube/SUP.

The weeping willow island was mine and my dog's favorite. Enough sunshine to comfortably read, enough shade to stay cool, and always a little breeze.

Other than beautiful, the pavilion set Black Bear apart. It provides a large, dedicated space to store and prep food. The convenience and functionality made the whole weekend ideal because we didn't have to think about the small stuff

Molly is 5-star host and offers a premier tent and site for a great Glamping experience.

Your view of the river and the steps down the the water.

The best place on hipcamp that we’ve stayed at so far! The tent is clean, and spacious. You still get the camping experience without feeling crammed or sleeping on the ground. The portapotty is kept very clean. The bar/picnic/grilling area is an awesome amenity. Being right on the river is also a bonus. Needless to say we’ll definitely be back!

Molly’s land and camping setup was great! They have thought of most everything you could need! Lots of beautiful wildlife and the store is only a short drive should you forget anything.

Great glamping setup! We were right on the river with steps for easy access so we could carry tubes down to float and play. We spied several small fish, a resident blue heron, some turtles, and lots of cool rocks in the shallows. The fire pit atop the bank had a grate that made cooking dinner a breeze. We prepped at the counter back under the Pavillion and ate there at the picnic table. The solar lights made it all magical as the sun set and the tiki torches kept the bugs at bay. The port-a-potty was super clean and just steps from the tent. As if all this wasn’t enough, our son enjoyed fishing at the catch and release pond while I read in the hammock, a bit of beach ball volleyball (there’s a net set up), and several rounds of horseshoes before roasting marshmallows each night (loads of wood all stacked up for you). And this site is a mere 10-15 mins to several amenities—grocery, dollar store, etc. what a find!

Wow! Molly is a truly amazing host. She has thought of everything. This is the perfect getaway. No need to worry about pitching a tent, a sore back from the ground, finding some place to pee, or building a fire pit. Her attention to detail is phenomenal.
