Hey! We were voted among the best of Virginia's HipCamps in 2018! Thanks Y'all!

65 acres of woods and field**, on the Tye River [long-ish walk through the woods or 1.5 mile walk down the road or drive/bicycle to good swim holes] close to the Blue Ridge Mountains, breweries, wineries, and a Whisky Distillery! ..as well as orchards near by.

The river is EXCELLENT for canoeing and kayaking. There is a terrific 4 mile run with an easy put in and take out that runs by the farm.

There is a large garage that can store motorcycles.

The amount of wildlife is amazing, and camping out in the field gives you the best experience, sitting by a fire listening to 3 kinds of owls hooting, coyotes singing, or Whippoorwills in the Spring, or if you are lucky you'll hear a bobcat or catch the turkeys doing their mating dance! Loads of deer, fox, rabbits, an occasional black bear passing through and hundreds of species of song birds, and raptors.

We are far from a city so the night sky is breath-taking on a clear night. Perfect for star gazing.

I am smitten with this area and am an avid hiker and motorcyclist, and always happy to share my knowledge of local roads, trails, swimming holes and places to eat and drink.

*One note- Although there are acres and acres to camp on, so plenty of privacy, I only allow an open fire in one spot in the field, so it's possible you may end up sharing. [camp stoves are fine anywhere]

**PLEASE note that as I mention this is a FIELD and WOODS.. NOT a "camp site".. the grass grows high.. the grass gets cut.. you will be walking through it.. and there may or may not be a path..! [see the pictures to get an idea]

Stephanie's farm was a wonderful private holler tucked away into the foothills of Virginia. We stayed for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the seclusion of her property. Stephanie gave concise directions and maintained the land very well. There were almost no mosquito's, and the field was in great shape.

There is access to the Tye River just a mile down the road with great swimming and kayaking opportunities, certainly don't miss that if you are visiting.

Some observations for perspective campers:
- Her field is open and fairly expansive, however there is little to no tree cover in the main field so plan accordingly if shade is of importance to you.
- Firewood is ample if you walk into the treeline and forage for some deadwood, Stephanie also provides logs for a small fee if that interests you as well

This spot is absolutely wonderful! My boyfriend and I had the loveliest experience and would without a doubt come back again. Our host, Stephanie was the sweetest and so accommodating. Made us feel welcome right away.

Although we only stayed one night, we definitely could have stayed more. Our night was peaceful, private, and very comfortable. Being able to see so many fireflies and stars light up the sky was a delight (city kid, big deal).

All in all, if you plan to pass through for one night or stay a weekend, I highly recommend stopping here. You won't be disappointed!

Stephanie and her property are absolutely beautiful.

This place was magickal!

Tons of wild flowers in the meadows, what seemed like an endless Forrest surrounding us on all sides, humming birds, dragon flies, grasshoppers. We were blessed with an almost full moon, and the stars here were simply incredible! Drifting off to sleep, in the wee hours of the morning, to the songs of the coyotes....... PERFECTION. We (14 kampers in total) all, highly recommend this location. Thank You again Steph, we made memories there to last us all a life time. :) ~K~

Stephanie was so easy to communicate with via text. She wasn't on site when we stayed, but her son came to check on us and she was easily reachable by phone.

The site itself is gorgeous and huge! An amazing spot for star-gazing and getting away from the city.

We requested to camp at Twin Poplar Farms super last minute because of poor planning on our part, but Stephanie responded super quickly and hooked us up with a perfect spot! The property is beautiful and quiet and there's a nice spot down by the river you can hike over to! Not as fancy as the state park we stayed at the day before, but more primitive camping definitely has its perks.

The location of Stephanie's farm was ideal for attending the Overland Expo a few miles away at the Infinity Downs Farm. From the start, Stephanie was very prompt replying to all my messages. She answered all my questions and made sure we and her other guests would be given privacy.
Her property is beautiful, quiet and secluded. I would highly recommend!

Our camper on the farm.  A very secluded, private setting.
