116 acres of rolling hills, streams, old growth hardwood forest and other areas of young growth pine forest. This property has wildflower meadows and miles of interconnecting hiking trails. 

It's been very dry and the sites are all accessible by vehicle except site 10 which is a "hike in" site. The distance is only about 200 yards along a beautiful hiking trail. Site 10 for nature lovers.

= = = = = = = = = = 

Pitch your tent in the forest or meadow and walk the labyrinth, sit around a fire ring, and explore miles of marked hiking trails. More adventurous campers may want to explore the wilderness woods and observe the native plants and wildlife. Site 11 is an "open camping area of 50 acres. Here you will find a large system of beaver dams beaver channels and their ponds, along with all the native plants in this old growth hardwood forest. Deep in the back 50 you will find these beaver dams where three small streams meet.  These streams become "Clear Creek" and feed Lake Orange which is about 2 miles away as the crow flies. 

Each designated site (except site 11) has a picnic table, a fire pit, a stash of firewood and container of fresh potable water.

Camp near the vernal pool and hear the frogs and crickets. Great opportunities for bird watching. Investigate six different kinds of bamboo - including Giant Japanese Timber Bamboo, Giant Vivax, Giant Moso Gray, Thick-stem,  Giant Black and Golden Bamboo. This is an herb farm - so there are lots of fruits and berries to sample in season. 

Site 1:  Large grassy area with a small tipi for the kids.  Easily accommodates three or four families. Good for larger groups with kids. Near the labyrinth and large fire pit.  The clean odor free Bio Toilet is a short walk - behind the cabin, out of sight and accessible to all campers.  This site is good for RV's - no actual hookup.

Site 2: This site is near the pond and open - no tree cover. Good for two tents.

Site 3: Tucked between a stand of giant timber bamboo and a small stream, this site is best for a one tent camper - a second tent could be put up nearby.

Site 4:  (very secluded site) This site is in a forest clearing of giant oak trees. You can usually park near the site and it's a very short walk in. In wet times this site is not car accessible.

Site 5: (very secluded site, hilltop site, great views)  Car accessible from Route 625. This site is just under the forest canopy. Campers can enjoy a large bonfire in the open area near the camp. We combined two sites into one, so campers here will have the whole hill to themselves.

Site 6: Extension of site 5 (for over flow... book site 5 if you have a larger group, and you have access to this extension site)

Site 7:  (very secluded site, hilltop site, great views) The site is under the forest canopy and beside the hiking trails. This site is basically at the top of a second large hill. Campers here will not see any other campers nearby.

Site 8: Extension of site 7 (for over flow... book site 7 if you have a larger group and you have access to this extension site)

Site 9: Nestled up against a pine forest, this site is secluded and peaceful. You won't hear or see any other campers from this site. 

Site 10: We call this site "Blue Mist" because of the prolific Blue Mist flowers in late summer. It is a very secluded site - you won't hear or see any other campers from this site also. To get to this site you will park on the pipeline and hike in about 200 yards.

Beautiful farm land. Peaceful. Some cool skydiving was great to watch right across the street.

We had site 1 which had a bio toilet righ there. Clean.

Plenty of free firewood that Donald supplies right there. And he had a portable fire pit for us with a bench/table set up.

Lots of trails that the dog log exploring.

We’ll definitely be back.

(Site 11 The 50 acre wood)
June 12th, 2021

Donald was a great host. He was attentive to us at check-in and lead us back to our site. The sites seem to all be set up very well. There are trails to hike, the site is close to Lake Orange, there are fire pits, picnic tables and clearings which made the setup very easy. The sites are easily accessible and you can have your vehicle close to the sites. The host brought us plenty of wood for the fire to last the weekend.

There is no light pollution so you have a beautiful view of the sky and even though it's close to Rt. 20 and side roads, there was very little noise during the evenings.

It's close to Fredericksburg, offering me a chance to get away, but not have to drive far. Several small mom-and-pop gas stations that will allow you to get the essentials.

(Site 10 - Blue Mist)
April 13th, 2021

We had a great stay on Donald's property. He has over 100 acres of land that he encouraged us to explore. We went from camping in the woods to walking out into a field and enjoying the sun with plenty of room for my dog to run around. All of his sites are pretty well spread out and there is plenty of wildlife. We even took a short hike and saw plenty of beaver damns. Worth the trip for sure!
