We at Back Achers Farm welcome you!! Our Volkswagen Graveyard Tent Site is secluded and even offers great photo ops of our antique, sleeping Volkswagens. We are a 4th generation family farm filled with endearing history of the Jones's. We offer Agritours to show how a Grass Fed Black Angus farm functions and thrives. We also love to tell stories, like the one about how the lake came to be or the one about if Bill Jones hadn't found the farm on his self appointed deadline, we wouldn't be here at all! We love to share and listen! Once you are a part of our family, you stay that way...so come and sit a spell and let us weave your adventures while on Back Achers into our tales. You are minutes from world famous caves for everyone from novice to expert, Chickamauga Battlefield, tons of year round festivals (ig The Honeybee Festival, Riverbend,) cycling events and beautiful mountains. Chattanooga, TN is a mere 15 miles away for city adventures. We offer a creek, lake for fishing and canoeing and a unique Northwest Georgia experience right here on our 365 1/2 acres that you will never forget! Our view of the night sky is the best kept secret in the area!

The vibe at Volkswagen Graveyard

Super friendly host, showed us the lake which is a drive or ~15 min walk and to our area very promptly. Felt very safe and the sky at night was amazing, no light pollution or sounds of a city. Very private spot.
Very basic setup, at back of a farm field area. Had to walk a bit to the site from where you park. The terrain walking to a spot and picking an area to put the tent was a bit challenging due to uneven ground from a large tractor and very large, spiky brush cut down to about 6-8". which made it just a little harder to set up than expected. No distinct camping area, but we managed to find a flat spot near a fire pit under some trees. Lots of bugs due to the brushy grassy area nearby and a pretty small standing water pond near where we pitched camp. No potable water.
VW graveyard was pretty entangled so we had to try hard to see the cars, maneuvering between barbed wire fence and uncleared woods, but it was fun nonetheless to see them. Couldn't stand around long bc you're truly in thick brush to get to see them.
Overall we enjoyed it, we're seasoned campers and know campsites vary a lot, just not as established/kept up as a camping spot as expected. Good distance to Cloudland Canyon, about 20 min drive.
