Genesis Farm is a little slice of tranquility right on the Virginia Creeper Trail, about five minutes outside of Damascus, VA. Owners Darren and Valerie are the picture of southern hospitality and were eager to help with whatever I needed.

Upon arrival, we were greeted with all the sights, sounds, and smells of a country farm. We made it just in time for feeding the animals and Valerie was more than happy to let my kids join in the fun. Genesis Farm is a working hog farm and they have sausage and pork belly, along with farm fresh eggs available for purchase.

We set up our tent by the barn on a level clearing in the front yard. The location was great, but if you don't want to be located next to the barn there are a few other places around the property to set up. The kids enjoyed the play set and trampoline that was conveniently located right next to the picnic table and communal fire ring.

Within a three minute walk, you can get to the Virginia Creeper Trail, which is flat and well marked with gravel. There is also a beautiful river that flows alongside the property where you can go tubing or fishing. My kids enjoyed it! The landscape is mountainous and full of beautiful wild flowers and lush green tree canopies.

The bathroom and shower is located inside the house, you can refill water bottles at the sink, and firewood is provided at no charge.

Possible Cons: there are lots of animals. Among which are cats, dogs, hogs, and chickens. So, if you don't like farm life this may not be the place for you. Also, it's not very private.
Pros: It is the perfect spot for through hikers and the Appalachian Trail runs right down the middle of Damascus, so it's a great spot for camping. You have great amenities like flush toilets, hot showers, and free firewood. Plus, you can't go wrong with hosts like Darren and Valerie. Their hospitality and kindness are unmatched and we felt right at home there!

Very welcoming and accommodating! Played with some lovely kittens and cats during my stay. Close to the Creeper Trail which I didn't get to explore much but seems great. And nearby is Mt Rogers/Grayson Highlands State Park where there are very friendly wild ponies. I had a quick stay on the farm, but overall, great experience, would recommend/use again if I'm in the area.

Valerie was a gracious host. We came in for a quick over night. She allowed us to use their families indoor bathroom and provided us with free firewood. Waking up to pigs and chickens over coffee was a fun addition. It isn't as private as I expected but otherwise a fine experience.
