We are located within an hour from Wintergreen, numerous wineries, craft beer locations and numerous hiking destinations.
River access to the James River is a short drive to Howardsville. There you will also find a General Store which offers you the basics, such as Beer, Wine, Ice and a few grocery items. They make the best homemade sandwiches and grilled burgers. Direct river access can be provided via special request. I can also provide shuttling services. But this needs to be mentioned well before your stay as I don't live up there year around.
Please plan on bringing a set of single sheets for the two beds or simply unfold your sleeping bag. Of course your own favorite pillow will set you up for a comfortable night.In the Treehouse, your sleeping bag will work.

First off our host Mitch was super nice and helpful. He was quick to respond to my questions and had the lights on in the pavilion and jugs of water ready for us.
*Easy to find
*Bunk beds were oversized, we slept two adults on the bottom bunk comfortably
*Stayed dry in the soaking rain
*Steps into the bunkhouse were slippery and we all banged our shins
Not what we were expecting......
My husband and I rented this for a little mountain getaway with our 7 year old daughter and dog Norman. Unfortunately, this hipcamp rental was not what we were expecting. We booked for 2 nights but only ended up staying one night. First I will start with the pros of the site....
- very friendly host
- great little cabin and tree house
- outhouse on site
- the campsite is literally 80 yards from the hosts house. He was having a get together the night we arrived and there was loud music playing and we could hear all of his guest talking outside.
- the fire pit is not located near the cabins
- the outhouse is not conveniently located to the cabins, not something that you could walk to in the pitch black of the night
With all that being said, we felt as if we were camping in someones back yard. There wasn't much, if any privacy. We are normally backpackers and tent campers but with the cooler temperatures in March we decided to give this a try. We will definitely be going back to backpacking for our next adventure.
This is one of the most unique Hipcamp experience I've ever had. The location is remote, far from any main roads. The peace and quiet allowed me to truly immerse in my book. I enjoyed the access to the campfire and the host's decoration to the outhouse. The bunkhouse was much more comfortable to stay in but the tree-house was truly one of a kind, definitely something I would have killed for as a kid. Thank you for having us!!
Our stay at Whisper Creek was great! Mitch was very helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed. The accommodations were fun and cozy. The kitchen/hang out area included lounge chairs, a big table, plenty of counter space for cooking, and festive lights. It was a really fun experience and I would definitely go back!
Camping at Mitch's place was fantastic. The bed and shelter were really comfortable and the main camping area had everything we needed. We had an amazing weekend and would definitely recommend to others!
