Pitch your tent and enjoy all that Historic Cedar Dam has to offer. Beautiful views, the largest willow oak in Virginia, wildlife galore, a "Fish House" with running water fridge, and griddle, a lake full of fish to catch for dinner. A mute swan named Admiral Featherington to add an extra touch of beauty, a hot outdoor shower then a stroll past the beaver pond to cap off your evening. If the weather turns bad you can upgrade to the cabin, start a fire and charge your devices. Peaceful wooded sites, or stay in the rabbit patch and make some furry friends while you eat your fill of wild blackberries.

This was one of our favorite stops on our month-long cross country trip. We got in at dusk and Kim showed us around her property which included a beautiful pond, an ancient willow tree, a field full of bunnies, and the sweetest wild cherry tomatoes. Our only regret was not staying longer!

Kim was a wonderful host. We arrived fairly late, but she still took us around in a golf cart and showed us the whole property. She has lots of different spaces to camp in. We chose to be back in the woods. It was the perfect spot. Secluded, but not too far from the bathroom or outdoor shower. We were able to do some great fishing and pick fresh cherry tomatoes on the property. She even built us a fire in the firepit. All we had to do was bring some chairs and light it. I would highly recommend Cedar Dam for any campers. It was just two of us, but it would have been perfect for a large group as well.

This place was so special! This review won't do it justice! My friend and I went for one night to celebrate her birthday and we had the most relaxing time. Kim is an awesome host and helped us pick out a spot when we first arrived. Every spot was beautiful, but we decided to camp in the "bunny patch" in a shady spot next to the pond. There were a few other guests but we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves! The views at sunset were terrific on both the pond and in the meadow. The pond was great for swimming and floating - there was a row boat and a paddle board available for use as well. My advice - save some space and leave your cooking gear at home! The communal fire pit was equipped for grilling and the fish house had all the pots, utensils, plates, etc required for cooking a meal.

Cedar Dam was an amazing place to stay! Peaceful, secluded, everything we were looking for. We parked our small motorhome right by the campfire and had our little home away from home.

Spent an amazing weekend at Cedar Dam. The property is beautiful and secluded. Kim was an excellent host and the property is beautifully maintained. If you are looking for a peaceful, charming getaway where you can enjoy nature, this is the perfect place. The trees, the pond, the fish house all make the camping experience all the more enjoyable. We will most definitely be back to make more memories.

A very relaxing, peaceful overnight stay. This camp has it all covered. Very clean, nicely landscape and well maintained. We really needed this at the end of a very long driving day. Loved strolling along the trails and picking blueberries to the sound of frogs in the pond. Wish we could have stayed longer!

The Fish House was such a pleasant surprise. We were expecting to really rough it, but there was a George foreman and a hot plate and CEILING FANS!!
A great getaway from the noises of the city and great place for stars.
The roosters will wake you up in the morning.

We had a wonderful stay at Cedar Dam. Kim's communication and directions prior to our arrival were very clear. We camped at the site in the woods near the old railroad tracks but spent the majority of our time at the Fish House as the site does not include a picnic table, fire pit or chairs. There were other groups camping in the bunny field and staying at the cabin while we were there, and the Fish House, privy, fire pit and showers are all shared spaces, so we enjoyed spending time with our fellow campers as well. We also got to explore the town of Petersburg (highly recommend Demolition for coffee/breakfast and Ammo for beers) and hike at Chesdin Dam (thanks to Kim's recommendation!). We brought 2 dogs and they had a great time playing in and around the pond. We hope to be back! Next time we'll bring floats :)
