Pleasant and quiet
We were greeted by a big white pup. Later a friendly gray cat came to visit. Our little dog didn’t know what to think of such a friendly cat.
Nathan was very hospitable, asked if there was anything else we needed, and even offered to build a campfire for us.
We stayed a few days in a very relaxed atmosphere and when we’re back in the area, we plan to stay again.
Relaxing backcountry camping
We stayed on Nathan's property for a month and loved it! There are two water/electric hookups, and we stayed at one of them in our travel trailer. Nathan's camper is also on the property for rent, and has a sewer drain that we were able to use for dumping our own tanks. Its a nice location, out in the country. Very quiet and relaxing. There are two dogs and a cat that come and greet campers and may even hang by the campfire with you! The ground is fairly uneven and Nathan had lots of wood blocks and cement blocks for us to use for leveling our trailer. There is a little outhouse with an outdoor shower (with hot water) that we used many times. During our month there, we shared the property with a couple other rvs, tents and camper vans at various times. There was typically at least one other group there on weekends but we had the place to ourselves at times too. Nathan was a great host, very available for any questions or anything we may need, he gave us suggestions of things to do in the area and upcoming events, and he always kept the wood pile well-stocked with firewood. Will definitely stay here again when we are in the area!!
A great place to stay. I was a little concerned about a review about needing a 4 wheel drive to get up the drive. We were in a class C pulling a tow vehicle. Nathan responded very quickly to my email and we decided to go ahead and go to the property. We made it through the gate and up the drive with our tow attached, no problem at all. No four wheel needed. Thanks Nathan for a great experience.
Quiet with power and water
Nathan is a friendly host with a nice property on quiet back road. He provides free firewood and has friendly dogs. Large trailers may have issues backing in, and some spots are not very level - no prob for our 17’ Casita. Water and electric made for a comfortable stay.
Great stay with camper
It’s an absolute GEM! The meadow is great with plenty of spots. We weren’t sure if our 30ft camper would fit but we found a level spot and Nathan approved. It was a little iffy getting in through the gate and getting out but other than that everything was great. Nathan is a great host- very accommodating and nice.
Beautiful, quiet place in an area with lots of sprawling farmland. Nathan was a friendly and welcoming host. He and his family chopped tons of firewood for us, lent us an electrical adapter, and set up a grill over a fire pit for us. There are a number of sites close together, so it’s not the most private space when occupancy is high. (Some spaces are more private than the those in the clearing we were in.) But we loved meeting and hanging out with our camping neighbors! Putting this one on my list of places to stay again.
Exactly what we needed
This was exactly what we needed. We were trying to ram out the last 800 miles home, and decided we were smoked well short. We wanted a hipcamp, but something convenient to our route. Bingo - Traveller’s Meadow. We were able to book on short notice, crash with power, and access to a toilet. It was perfect. We also lucked out with a clear night - and the sky was dramatic to say the least. We were thrilled with our short stay.
Pulling a trailer? come prepared!
Traveler's Meadow Comforts was a nice place in a decent location. Nathan is very responsive to questions and help. It was nice having a smaller private campground and allowing the kids to run free without worrying about cars going by. If you are looking to spend time in Shenandoah National Park expect at least a 30 min drive to the park and then add on however far you want to travel within the park.
It was difficult pulling in and out our 30 ft travel trailer. The road is narrow and steep, having 4 wheel drive was a must. The lot is not flat. We brought two sets of blocks to put the wheels up on and it was still not enough to make us level. That being said if we had angled the front of our RVs toward the gravel road it may have made it better. Lastly, if you are planning on dumping your tanks, bring enough blocks to angle your left side toward the dump, get creative with how you backup your rv, or have a backup plan and location to dump. I could not angle my trailer enough to the port side to get everything out and had to find an alternate location.
