About Spring Hill Farm
*CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO DEER HUNTING SEASON
Spring Hill Farm is located in rural northwest Hanover County/Caroline County Border on the North Anna River in Virginia. We are between the Cities of Fredericksburg to our north and Richmond to our south. The family operates a seasonal organic produce farm during the summer months and make Christmas wreaths during the holiday season.There are approximately 140 acres of wooded acreage (plenty of places to pitch a tent) with a couple of trails, one leading to the North Anna River. However, there is no lighting in the camping areas at all. For your safety and enjoyment, please plan to arrive at least one hour prior to dark, so there is ample time to pitch your tent and know your surroundings prior to the sun setting. Except for the local freight trains, it is very quiet and peaceful. Private boat put in about 5 miles away. Walking access to river on site and at county line (1 mile). Local attractions within a 20 mile radius are Sassafras Shade Winery, Kings Dominion Theme Park, Virginia State Fairgrounds, Stonewall Jackson Shrine, Lake Anna State Park, North Anna Battlefield, Scotchtown (former home of Patrick Henry), Ashland Berry Farm, and Randolph Macon College. Nearest store for groceries and gas is about 5 minutes away in Chilesburg. 10 miles to fast food and pharmacy.
Spring Hill Farm is working organic farm three seasons out of the year. The majority of our customers belong to our co-op, but there is usually basic produce and eggs (delivered from a local farm) available July and August. If you would like more info or know what is available during your stay, please ask. If you are so inclined, you could also have the opportunity to volunteer here on the farm in the spring and summer months.
Summer Running Club: On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays at 7 pm., the public is invited to run/walk the property. Between trails, private road, and open field, it is easy to get your 5K. If nobody else shows, I am here. When he is not working, my XC son will be around for those who need more of a challenge, or vice versa!
Wedding Celebrant: I am licensed/ordained to perform marriages in the Commonwealth through my church. Pre-marital counseling is mandatory. If interested, please inquire.

The vibe at Spring Hill Farm
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Beautiful location to spend a night with friends. Camille was very helpful providing information in advance and ensuring that the trail to the site was freshly mowed. Definitely recommend this site that is only about 1.5 hours from DC and not far off of 95.
The property, fields and campsites, are absolutely beautiful. The campsites are extremely private and all feature a fire pit and bench/table. I would strongly recommend bringing bug spray or citronella candles to your campsite. Finding each of the sites is easy with your host providing sign’s at each of the sites and detailed directions. There are plenty of spacious fields and trails to explore -- the property is 200 acres and has a long and interesting history!
This was my first time using Hipcamp, but Camille's farm was the perfect place to do it. We looking for a place to stay for one night as we were passing through Richmond in the middle of a road trip to Nashville from New York. We booked campsite 2 — it was beautiful, quiet, secluded and private, at the edge of a field that made us feel like we had a little bit of space to ourselves. A great alternative to crowded public campgrounds. You do have to walk about five minutes from your car to the site, which is not a big deal – it had rained the day we arrived but wasn't muddy at all. Camille was a gracious host and shared some beautiful cherry tomatoes with us as we headed out.
Similar to previous reviews, it's my first time using Hipcamp, and this looked like a great place to start. Camille was very helpful and accomodating; likewise, it's a gorgeous property, and a great place to find some solitude; nothing like being able to have a giant meadow to yourself for the weekend.
If you want privacy, seclusion, peace this is your place. I have discovered Hipcamp on a whim, and to be honest, I was a little nervous. At the same time, I was extremely fed up with noise and obnoxious teenagers in regular campgrounds so I thought “I got nothing to lose.” This was probably the best experience of my life when it comes to camping. The host Camille was the sweetest lady, and you can tell how much she loves the grounds and it shows with all the care that place sees. We were nestled in campsite 1 and invented the word silence and privacy haha. There’s so much to explore around trails on the VERY spacious property. People who had bad experience obviously did not read instructions and descriptions well, because this is a primitive campsite, in every way possible. Yet, there is no place like this anywhere else. I’d sacrifice a week of showers for another night of pure peace and nature. Friday night the field you get access to was lit by moonlight and some wildlife came out to play, and frankly that right there made us shift our calendars around to fit a stay in near future.
Camille was a great host who is very positive and provides a ton of information to improve your camping experience. Spring Hill Farm, Campsite 1, is a beautiful location that my girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed camping in. We would definitely like to come back and spend more time there!
