Come enjoy Warren Ferry Landing, our expansive and shaded property just steps from the James River! Our property boasts 400+ feet of river frontage for you to enjoy and you can swim, fish, or even launch a canoe directly from our sites.

About the property

Our property is located adjacent to the historic Warren Ferry crossing of the James River.  This is one of two historic ferry crossings near Scottsville, VA!  The other, Hatton Ferry, is located a little bit down river from this location.

Our property is only 8 miles from Scottsville so if you need to pop into town for something you forgot it is quite easy. There are many other activities that you can partake in nearby or on our property. There is fishing, swimming, hiking, and kayaking all within easy reach of our property.

We do not live onsite but we aim to be easily reachable over the phone or text. If you have any questions before or during your stay please don’t hesitate to reach out. Keep in mind that during the night it is possible to hear some train activity from across the river.

Once again, we really enjoyed our night camping on JJ's property! We love how private and quiet the area is (you can hear the train go by a couple of times a day/night though FYI). There's a rustic cabin on the same property, but no one was staying there so it was just a perfect evening with friends and our dogs. The next morning, we went for a short hike at Walnut Creek Park about a half-hour away, highly recommend that too :)

Nice spot on the river! A bit of a ways down a steep, unpaved road, made it a challenge on my road bike tires at night. There is easy access to the river to collect water to treat.

Very well maintained and private spot right on the water. Tons of space for the dogs to roam around. J.J. was a great host; extremely accommodating and responsive.

I will definitely be staying here again.

Great, private camping spot. Both sunset and sunrise were lovely right by the river. We were the only campers on the property, which is just the experience we were looking for. Planning a return trip in the fall.

A wonderful, peaceful field along the James River to pitch a tent and sit by a fire. There is a muddy access point to the river if you want to wade or swim. There was a nice fire pit with a grill grate for cooking and plenty of firewood! There was
Picnic table that would have been nice. The outhouse was a decent walk to the opposite end of the property...not a walk you want to make in the middle of the night!

This was our first time using Hipcamp and this campsite has set the bar high. My request was accepted quickly and the directions that were provided were easy to follow. The campsite looked to have been freshly mown and very well maintained. There is a beautiful expanse of grass between the campsite and the river (as can be seen in the picture that I posted). At night, the fireflies were abundant and provided the perfect ambience. The firepit is a good size and the attached grill is a nice bonus. There were some campers at the adjacent cabin but they were far enough away that we only caught glimpses of them and we didn't hear much noise from them at all. When you are nestled back into the campsite, it feels very private and secluded.

This is a wonderful place to camp if you want to canoe! We tent camped two nights and loved every second. The site is gorgeous--amazing trees, including a grove of paw paws and a stunning view of the river. The tent site has a fire ring AND an elevated fire pit with a grate for cooking, not to mention there was plenty of pre-cut wood available. The fire pit was a wonderful touch!

We launched our canoes from the campsite and floated ~6 miles to Scottsville. We stopped a lot to snack and swim, but anyone could canoe it in 2-3 hours easily. There are also plenty of other take outs along the route used by James River Runners if you want to use their equipment. The float was peaceful and easy--very navigable for even the newest canoer.

Just to provide a comprehensive review: the pit toilet was also a nice amenity. Well maintained, and if you are so inclined, you can leave the door open and enjoy a nice view of the forest while you do your business.

The train did go by on Friday but not Saturday night (on the other side of the river), but it wasn't overly loud or troublesome. It actually added a nice ambience to the experience.

We loved our time at this little slice of heaven! Thank you JJ!

We want to love this campsite & look to staying there soon! The host provided timely communication, detailed directions, and site is ideal on the river. We had some mechanical issues & failed to leave our driveway, however will keep on our quick getaway list!
