Chattooga Belle Farm is a 190 acre u-pick fruit farm growing over 20 types of fruit and boasts a stunning 270-degree of the Blue Ridge Mountains. With a 22 acre lake with some pasture beside it, there is ample room to set up camp either in the open, under a tree, or in the woods. There are not assigned spots.  A short walk to a well-house for potable water, may provide opportunity to gaze at the grass-fed, Black Angus cattle grazing nearby. There is an 18-hole disc golf course that trails through the property, so you may be able to play or meet a passerby who is playing. A little bit longer walk will bring you to Chattooga Belle Farm Distillery where we make Brandies, Whiskies, a Vodka, a Gin and Muscashine made with the fruits of our labor. And, a little bit further walk up to the main event barn will have a farm store that is open 7 days a week, April through October and a Bistro which serves lunch from 11-2 every day except Monday.  (Hours may change due to COVID.  When you book, you will receive instructions and hours.)

We enjoyed our stay at Chattooga Belle Farm. The Farm has tons of features -- the store, vineyard, campsite, distillery, disc golf, star gazing and more. We enjoyed a fresh and delicious lunch before heading out for the day at the bistro. The camping area is removed from the main areas so it is private and spacious.

Walking up to the dock. Lounge lazily in the lake life. The light on the farm is always majestic. Pick your own blueberries!

My partner and I camped at CBF for the eclipse. There were a lot of campers, but we didn't feel too cramped. We found a great little right next to the lake, and we really enjoyed it. When we got too hot, we jumped off the dock into the lake for a swim. The farm itself is also lovely -- vineyards, a few head of cattle, and gorgeous views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We'd return.

We are so glad you came and enjoyed it. We hope you'll come back again. Of course, until we do another elcipse festival, chances are you'll have the whole place to yourself next time.

We had an amazing time staying at Chattooga Belle Farm and would recommend it to everyone, not just those passing through the area! The burgers (made from cows raised on the farm) at the restaurant were delicious, the service both at the restaurant and the distillery was superb, and Ed and Kitty were so welcoming and hospitable. We had the campsite all to ourselves right on the water and were grateful to our hosts for the provided firewood.

Five stars all around. The property is gorgeous and Ed and Kitty, the owners, and the property and distillery manager, Ben, made us feel like family. There is so much to do that we didn't even leave the property on the first day of camping.

This is a vineyard, distillery and farm. It's beautiful and an excellent location for a wedding for music festival. I would not recommend it for groups of less than 25 people. Its a nice place but don't expect much privacy.

Tent camping is in a hay field and the grass was above waist height. I didn't see a single stick so bring firewood.

The campsite was oversold for the Memorial Day weekend so we left and found another more wooded location. The host were excellent and quickly refunded all fees.

Response from Ed and Kitty, the Host, on October 2nd, 2019

Sorry about your experience! We usually cut the hay when we have guests. I am unsure if there were last minute bookings and we didn't have time, or if you went to an area that was not cut. Hope you'll give us another chance.

I loved this place so much the first time I stayed, that I ended up booking two weekends in a row! My friends & I had a BLAST! Such nice view of the mountains from the distillery & bistro! Make sure to view either the sunrise or sunset from the distillery- the show is BREATHTAKING!

The campsites were nice & private! There was plenty of space to set up camp by the lake! There was also plenty of fire pits already set up in close proximity to the picnic tables that were on the campsite, which was really nice!! There’s a general store just down the road (about a 2-minute drive) that sells bundles of firewood for $5! There’s not many sticks around the site, so definitely make sure to have firewood! Start a fire, make some s’mores, & make sure to look up at the sky, because the view of the stars at night are just AMAZING!

You will NOT be disappointed booking here!!

A little slice of heaven just a few hours away. We discovered this campsite planning a last minute Labor Day trip. It was the best accidental discovery we could have had. This little piece of heaven will make you want to stay forever. Why leave?! You’ve got incredible company at the distillery (huge shout out to Ben). Delicious food at the Bistro. And all the apples and peaches you could ever dream of. On top of that the staff was personable and it was dog AND kid friendly!! Huge win!

You arrive to rolling hills with vineyards/orchards. The land is beautiful, just minutes away from the wild and scenic Chatooga River. If you want to relax, take in the sunset over the rolling hills wine in hand this is your place. Alternately, the site is minutes away from 3 premiere rafting companies to be guided over the rapids. If you have experience and your own gear it would make a great basecamp for drying out after running the rapids all day. The property is home to a distillery, a working bee farm, tree house, lakeside dock - all adjacent to the winery venue itself.
