About the Property

Welcome to our 16-acre horse paradise and camping area. 

We are located close to the historic James River, which is only 5 miles away, and offers excellent swimming and tubing. We offer tube rentals as well as river drop-offs and pickups for a modest fee (available upon checkout as a Hipcamp Extra). Additionally, enjoy hiking at nearby Van Clief Nature Trails or visit Walnut Creek Park. The area offers great access to biking, kayaking, apple picking, swimming, tubing, breweries, and vineyards. 

This spot is secluded and rural, yet only ~10 minutes from downtown Scottsville, Virginia. 

Your Host lives on site and is happy to greet you upon arrival but will then leave you to enjoy your stay.

This campsite is one of our favorites! The campsite itself was in a shaded, wooded area, which gives a lot of privacy. The horses on site are always a hit with the kids, and you're a 10 minute drive away from Monticello and Carters Mountain Orchard. Tons to do in the area, and will absolutely be back again.

Great camping spot in the woods next to the pasture and horse barn. We took advantage of the tubing drop off and pickup and that was a nice way to relax. Great hospitality and the host even offered us a chance to cool off in the pool one night - very gracious. Would definitely recommend.

Turkey Hollow was an absolutely fantastic camping site! Each of the three sites offers a semblance of privacy and cover while still being close to the fields. The horses wander a large field and occasionally stopped by to say hello. They were all friendly and were gentle as my two kids and I gave them lots of pets. There is a pond on site we were able to fish at, and ducks, chickens, dogs, and a cat.

Wonderful site and will definitely stay again sometime soon.

Wow. What a majestic weekend up at Turkey Hill farm. My favorite part? Definitely our host, Matt. How accommodating and straight up goofy that guy was. He brought us freshly chopped cedar, water, and even gave me a strong boost up on his shoulders. We will all miss him dearly, and are grateful to have had that experience! Sending our love to Duke, Pixie, and most importantly, Matt!

We stayed Fri-Sun for my wife’s 30th birthday and had an amazing time! The creek was so much fun for the kids and really was beautiful. The campsite was secluded enough that we felt alone but was close enough to the bathroom. The horses were beautiful and friendly, and we loved that we were essentially camping with them. Matt was great and was really helpful and friendly. Overall, we had a perfect weekend and would absolutely love to camp there again!

My friend and I visited Turkey Hollow on a beautiful February day and really enjoyed our visit. Our host was very friendly and accommodating and we loved meeting the horses, ducks, cats, and dogs! The drive to Turkey Hollow is wound through the beautiful mountains of Virginia and the campsite is not far from Charlottesville. The site we chose secluded in the woods near a gentle stream. The horses made our day by greeting us while we were hammocking! I would 100% recommend Turkey Hollow to anyone looking to step into nature and camp in one of the most beautiful parts of Virginia!

We loved this little bamboo grove! Tent Camping with HorsesTent Camping with HorsesTent Camping with Horses

Such a great time! The site was wooded and private. The area was beautiful and well maintained. The horses joined us for some time as well, once at night around our campfire. The kids loved it!
