Fantastic camping experience
What an incredibly special place! We loved camping at Paddy's Run. The site is beautiful, with lovely views, a 25 acre field for running around, a scenic BBQ spot, a fire pit and of course the above ground pool. It is a camp from the 60s/70s, well loved over the years but in great shape for camping and it felt very special to be there with so few people on the site. Amy is an incredible host, who clearly loves the camp, the place and its mission. She went above and beyond to help us make the most of our time there. We can't wait to visit again and highly recommend the HipCamp experience there.
We enjoyed every bit of our weekend at Paddy Run Camp. The swimming pool was a welcome break from the humid weather and we were grateful to Amy for letting us access the lodge and eat inside as it was raining hard on Saturday night. We will definitely go back!
Wonderful camp and great sky.
From a wonderful host to a great time outdoors, Retreat at Paddy's Run more than met our expectations. The large field provided a perfect space to enjoy the dark sky and meteors. And the pool during the day provided some reprieve from the heat. Now when I can book another stay...
We had THE BEST experience here for Labor Day weekend! Tons of space to spread out, gorgeous views of mountains all around, beautiful sunsets and sunrises and SO MANY stars! Perfect for novice campers and for families concerned about social distancing. Any assigned our family our own bathroom (with hot and cold water, showers, etc.) and kids loved the pool! The lodge was a great spot to take a break from the heat, store ice, have access to a refrigerator, etc. Tons of games and activities for kids - tetherball, volleyball, basketball, little hikes on site, etc. Amy was very accommodating and offered lots of great ideas. Campfire donuts on Sunday morning were an awesome surprise as well! No complaints - we had a great time!
Amazing stay at paddy’s run
Paddy’s Run was simply extraordinary. It is the most beautiful property and you immediately feel at home. Amy is an amazing host - even making campfire donuts for us Sunday morning. There is so much to do - jokes, b-ball, gaga ball, swimming, grills, fire pits and lots more. But more than anything else the place just has a spiritual beauty and the perfect nights sky. We cannot wait to return.
We had a great stay! It was a choose-your-own-adventure style of camping; The property had a little bit of everything and it was great to have all the amenities. We liked having the giant space to explore to ourselves and the different options for cooking/grilling. There were so many locations to set up the tent we had difficulties finding the perfect spot but once we were all set up it was fantastic!
This camp is a great alternative to the standard Shenandoah National Park offerings. If traveling with kids and/or a group, I would likely recommend Paddy's Run over most car camping options nearby (in which you are cramped near other campers) A huge property with much to explore, solitude, and that is relatively close to the NoVA/ DC.
Fantastic site, we will most certainly return. The camp site was perfect for our group of 9. The area was nestled in between two mountains, blessed with beautiful trees and flat open land. The amenities (bathrooms) were perfect as we had young children. Highly recommend.
We met some friends here for a night to hang out before going to Shenandoah Park. The site was large, well kept, and Amy went above and beyond to welcome us and help us maintain social distancing practices. The facilities were clean and well stocked. The grounds were peaceful and secluded from the world around. Not even Verizon could reach us there!
Thanks you, Amy
