Madpeper Blessing gets it name from the Madison/Culpeper County line that passes through the property. You can camp in either Madison County or Culpeper County or even BOTH at the same time. Our effort to purchase the land and build our home was a 4 year exercise in determination and tenacity. In June 2016, the land was blessed. A directional sign posted at the entrance directed guests to the "Madpeper Blessing" and the name stuck.  Our intent has always been to develop a farm on this 13-acre open hay field where family and friends can experience the peace and beautiful views of the Blue Ridge, including Skyline Drive and Old Rag. 

Bring your camping gear and stay a while.  Watch the sun rise to the tree lined east and watch the sun go to sleep over the Blue Ridge.  Listen for wild turkey, snorting deer and morning rooster crows or watch the evening fire flies dance.  For avid hikers, take a 7-mile hike to the Robinson River or take a 20 minute drive to the Old Rag trail head and wave to us from the top.  Book your date on the full moon and bask in its glow or check the meteor shower schedule.  Cook on the charcoal grill and eat at the picnic table, the same table we used when we first started camping there.

For those who want to experience nature but would like to venture into town, you will enjoy the history, wineries and shops of both Madison (15 minutes south) and Culpeper (15 minutes north).  Skyline Drive Swift Run Gap entrance is 30 miles away, where you can experience the amazing views in all directions.

This is a lovely quiet spot, minutes drive from the beautiful Shenandoah Park and little villages. The site is basic, but comfortable and as advertised, and the hosts were responsive to our questions. Bring a bucket or other water carrier so you can take water from the house up to your site for washing. Up on the hill our tent was surrounded by fireflies in the evening as we enjoyed the view and listened to the night creatures.

I absolutely loved my visit! Stefani was so helpful and provided everything my group and I needed for our stay. It was a nice private spot and perfect for stargazing. I recommend this site to anyone camping in the Shenandoah area!

Madpeper Blessing was a beautiful place to spend a few nights in Shenandoah. We fell asleep to crickets and woke to birdsong, and got to watch some of the most spectacular stars imaginable. We slept very well! The site is just about 30 minutes from the entrance to the National Park. It's was bare-bones but obviously well cared for--recently mowed grass, a grill with charcoal and lighter fluid and a picnic table. It was out in a meadow with quite a few houses within view, which was fine except for the bucket toilets.

The buckets were clean (lined with fresh bags and clean sawdust, with a clean toilet seat lid on top) but there was no place to use them privately. It was easy enough to change our clothes in the car or tent, but we made a point of using the restrooms elsewhere before we got to camp each night. That wasn't a huge deal, just took a bit of forethought--overall, we had a great stay!

Beautiful morning at Madpeper Blessing!

Thank you Emma. We completely agree about the toileting privacy. We are working on a practickal solution. We're happy you enjoyed your stay!

We had a great experience here! We were met by the host as we arrived and we were shown where to set up. We had a pop up camper. There wasn't a large flat space, but we found a spot that worked pretty well. Spent the day hiking in the Shenendoah National Park.
