You're free to build a fire during your time with us, there is firewood for extra $. As well, bring your fur family to join you while you dive into nature. You can find toilets and potable water on the property for your use.  !! Recent logging next to my property has made access to sites 1 and 2 somewhat difficult in wet weather.

Remote spot, great hostess. This the perfect spot to camp if headed to Bear Creek or High Bridge.

Kristie was extremely hospitable, the field along the wood line was very private and quiet. The Centerville boat landing to the James is only a few minutes away. Water and a bundle of firewood were provided, no clear access to the Willis River but I’m sure they’ll work on that :)

I absolutely love camping under the stars while listening to the frogs and the owls at Hortons Asylum! Kristie is an awesome host and knows the area. I will get to know her well as I will be camping there as long as she will allow it! Thanks Kristie! You're the best!
