Quick "roughing it" getaway from dc
Daniel was very nice and extremely welcoming. There are 4 sites available. The site we stayed at was along a quiet creek, surrounded by trees. The toilet is a bit of a walk away and it is pretty rough, but totally fine - just don't expect more than that. No real trails for hiking. Up from the site is some open field for kicking a ball around or setting up cornhole. Overall, we really enjoyed our night here. Nice to get out of DC for awhile....
Host Mr. Daniel was excellent and took the time to show us around the property and give us the history of the place. Communication was great we had a few hiccups scheduling but he worked with me and I am very thankful. Very gracious for Daniel to open up his property for all to share, lots of opportunity for great fishing here, family camping, swimming, exploring, picnic/grill out and just being out in nature in a relaxing environment. We look forward to returning and highly suggest visiting here to all. Thank you again Mr. Daniel
Great time close to dc
We had a great time at Sinclair's Mill. Beautiful location, we went in July so we went swimming in the river which the kids loved. The grounds were well maintained and its a beautiful spot. Daniel was super easy to communicate with and very accommodating. It was great time we would definitely go back.
Quiet little hideaway
The actual tent sites are secluded back in the trees which both are less than 50 yard walk from the field you can park in. The field itself is a blessing because you can hang out in the sun and do your thing and then head back into the campsite for shade and a fire. The river runs right along the property and you can hear boats going by, but totally not disruptive, kinda cool actually. Bring something to chop wood for a fire or bring your own wood if you can/are allowed. (Apologize for not fact checking if Dan is ok with you bringing in your own wood)
Dan was super nice and did nothing more than check in on us when we got there and that was that.
Top notch. Will visit again.
Ivy garden of eden
When we arrived at Sinclair's Mill, it was like being transported into another part of the world. The towering trees covered in ivy was more like something from the Jungle Book than Virginia. The property is so rich in history and our host Daniel led us around and pointed out the old mill site, gold mine shaft and the ruins of his grandfathers home. There are plenty of tent sites to choose from, as well as areas big enough for large groups. It's cut through a small creek that leads to a large river, so you can wade in the shallow clean creak, or canoe and swim in the larger river. Our dog loved running through the weaving paths and large open areas chasing grasshoppers and wadding in the river.
Private oasis outside of dc
This campsite was awesome! I came here with a large group and the site was plenty large enough for all of us (5 tents), we had plenty of privacy on our large secluded site. Daniel was very helpful and showed us our site and all that we could explore around the Lake Jackson area. This site was a great option for us as it wasn’t too far out of the DC area but still made us feel like we were in the wilderness.
The driveway in is long and bumpy but we drove a van and a passenger car to the site. You just need to take it slowly. There are also some religious signs but no proselytizing from the host.
Once there, Dan showed me all over his property and it was beautiful. There were woods, ponds, creeks and a deep water lake begging to come swimming, fishing and boating. Even in late fall there was greenery all around and trees changing colors.
Our site was a short easy walk through the woods from our car. We were surrounded by trees bordered by a creek and next to some interesting rock formations. We never even heard the campers in the next site except when we said hello while hiking, and our site felt private and secluded. Aside from some distant sounds of cars and airplanes, all we heard were birds calling, squirrels rustling leaves and the fire crackling. This is a truly special place and I plan to return often to experience it in all the seasons.
