Description

Unplug for a weekend at one of Virginia’s most off-the-grid campgrounds, Beartree Recreation Area. The namesake lake, surrounded by beaches and dunes, allows only non-motorized boating, and the campsites here tend to attract more tent campers, due to their lack of hookups (don’t fret if you brought the retro souped-up Airstream on the trip, though—RVs are more than welcome). The adorably-titled campground loop, Chipmunk Circle, is divided by a stream running down the middle, and is very close to entrances to the Appalachian Trail and the Iron Mountain Trail. Escape the ever-present whir of electricity in the city by gathering up to a dozen of your best friends (including the dog) and taking them over to Beartree for a few days of chilling on a gorgeous lake beach, where you’ll have all the conveniences of home like warm showers and running water, without the noise!
