***Currently we are Thinning part of this forested property to clear spots for campers and attend to the roads. Please do be aware of this construction going on. It is to begin soon.**** July 6th 2018
93 acres of undeveloped land. Camp near the road for an easy site or hike up the ridge to find a location that suits you. The way up to the top of the ridge is steep. A nice flat area is on top the ridge but its about a 1/2 mile climb up and takes thirty minutes or more. We get Verizon cell phone reception at the road and lower regions. Across the road is a stream which has very cold water and an old apple tree on a very old home site. This land was family farm for over 200 years, it has now regrown into an oak hickory forest. Hiking trails are old logging roads. Local activities in the area include, rock cliff views, national forest, hot springs, rock climbing, caves, waterfalls, bird watching and other site seeing. We are a 35 minute drive to City of Covington Va, or 15 min drive to the tiny locale of Paint Bank, which has been renovated into a restaurant and with bison served from local farm.

The vibe at Mountain Camping on Mill Ridge
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The host failed to respond to multiple calls made a day before or on the day of the camp. Even no response to the emails sent asking for directions and details
The camping site mentioned helped us reach the address 8303 mill branch road, covington, VA, however our expectation was to climb the hill and camp on mountain region near the streams (as mentioned in the site), however we were unable to locate any of these things
Finally we managed to camp in a place we felt nice, and since we were compeltley prepared had a great fun.
