My visit to the "Top of the World" site was absolutely wonderful. It truly is up in the clouds sitting at 3200 ft on the tallest privately owned mountain in the state of Virginia.

Although our host was not on the property for the weekend, he ensured I had everything that was needed for a pleasant stay on the mountain. Although his property does not offer any dramatic mountain views from the camping area, there is an observatory with an epic foothill vista just a short walk down from the driveway. The camping spot itself was nicely secluded and offered an open grassy area with tons of shady areas.

For those looking to hike, there is unfortunately no access to trailheads from Flat Top Mountain itself despite it's close proximity to Shenandoah NP. You will have to drive off of the mountain in order to hike (according to my research).

I would also caution for anybody not driving in with a 4x4 vehicle. The drive up the mountain is no joke. It's a very narrow gravel road with some particularly nasty spots where high clearance certainly wouldn't hurt.

We had a GREAT time here! The camp was nice and private and very spacious. It is beautiful up there and a fun drive to get there! We loved the cute tree swing and we had fun playing horseshoes. Josh met us when we got there and he was very welcoming. He left us extra jugs of water in case we needed it and gave us some info on the camp. It is a big grassy area with lots of room for our pop-up camper. Our only complaint is that we didn’t have a longer weekend to spend there! We will definitely be planning a trip back, it was the best camping spot we’ve found in Virginia.

Perfect spot for our little pop-up!

Robert was a wonderful host who was easy to communicate with and he got the site ready for us before our arrival. He left us a lot of wood for our camp fires and jugs of water in case we needed them. His property is beautiful and it really is on top of a mountain so be prepared to drive uphill for a little while. It felt perfectly secluded up there but there were still things to do. There are trails on the property, a big swing hanging from a tree, and we even got a visit from a sweet dog that lives up there. I'd recommend this spot to anyone- thanks again for everything, Robert!

Michela was my first guest. Perfect guests!! The only sign they were on my property was a smaller wood pile. Definitely recommend Michela. Thanks for your consideration of my property.

Beautiful piece of property, private and quiet. Great places to walk. Nice views. We brought a 29 foot RV that's about the max unless your a very confident driver. If your rucking in bring sleeping pads lots of nettles and prickers great place to chill overall.

Roberts camp site is at the top of a narrow, muddy and very steep road. It would be no issue with a single capable off-road vehicle, however we had to turn back from getting to the site halfway up the mountain. We have a very capable 4x4 off-road truck and 25' travel trailer which we have camped in off road campsites. However, at one point, all 4 tires lost grip as we attempted to ascend a 13% grade incline heading up to Roberts campsite. We also could not complete some of the hairpin turns up the mountain road there are no lights along the road or cell service. Combined with the recent weeks of rain, we were fortunate to navigate down the mountain safely and camped in Shenandoah NP instead of Roberts site.
Robert was responsive, however do not take the caution about the road lightly . I would not recommend anything other than single 4x4 vehicle campers. Happy camping!

So. Much. Space.

Robert's site is perfect for open or group camping. Multiple fire pits and plenty of downed wood for burning. (bring your own hatchet/axe). This spot was breezy (top of the mountain) and the view from the open field are incredible.

This drive is doable with most cars. Large trailers might find the swtichbacks more difficult to maneuver but hey, never say never.

10/10 would recommend this spot to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend.

Stone Mountain Winery is on the road to the top.. extremely welcoming folks with some great wines for tasting.

-Cheers!

Thank you so much for your kind words. Carmen, you and all the other campers that have visited this year experienced something that most people do not! We are so happy to share this wonderful space with like minded respectful people. We are glad you enjoyed the place. I think dry firewood on site is coming soon.......... Josh
