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. 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.

The vibe at Chattooga Belle Farm Lakeside

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.
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.
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.
The camp site was gorgeous, the farm store a fabulous surprise...lovely night. My only hesitation is there was no bathroom (aside from the farm store) or even specific area designated on the actually camp site as a bathroom. And if I were camping w lots of friends this could become a sticky issue (literally!). A wooden out-house would solve this issue.
I really enjoyed my stay here! The place to pitch tents was in a nice grassy field near the lake & there is an amazing view of the mountains from the farm. We were able to take a nice shower in the distillery a short drive from the camp area. Very quiet and peaceful, I would stay again!
