Pitch your tent on the shore of our private 3-acre lake and enjoy spectacular views, abundant wildlife, and 55 acres of peaceful privacy on Windwood Farm. Conveniently located 85 miles from Washington DC in beautiful Madison County, VA--just a short drive to Shenandoah National Park and several trail-heads, including White Oak Canyon and Old Rag Mountain. We are a short drive from Graves Mountain Lodge and the music and apple festivals. The campsite is an easy walk from parking and the main house with indoor bathroom access. A large level tent site, fire ring/grill, and portable toilet are provided. You may also pitch your tent on the shady top of "Higbie Hill" for a view of the lake, mountains, and spectacular sunsets. (No fires on the hill) An indoor flush toilet and hot shower is available at the main house in the mornings and evenings, or upon request if we are home. If you want some time in town, we are near Civil War battlefields, Montpelier, Monticello, wineries, breweries, and excellent restaurant and shopping opportunities in Culpeper and Madison. No tent or gear? No worries! We have a 4-man tent, cookware, and fishing gear available for rent and can have your site set up for your arrival for an additional fee.

    The tent site is smoothed out and level right by their large pond. I heard lots of wildlife in the night, and fog over the water was beautiful in the morning. Getting a shower inside was a real treat. Kenny and Laura are extremely gracious hosts, and spent part of their morning sharing fun stories with us. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to camp near Charlottesville.

    Such a great, quiet, peaceful spot to camp! The lake is so calm and there are even some beavers. Laura is such a sweetheart. She treated us so well.

    The Lakeside Retreat was everything we hoped for. A buddy and I used it as a launching point to shorten the drive from D.C. to SW VA for a camping trip. We got there after dark and the hosts greeted us and directed us towards the site. It is a peaceful and secluded site right next to a lake. The star-gazing was top notch. I wish we could have had more time to lounge around and enjoy the area, but we packed up to get on the road at daybreak. I would definitely recommend this spot!

    Great spot! Laura was extremely easy to communicate with and even came by to give us hot chocolate. The fire ring is a Weber grill bottom, and it was great having a large folding table set up. Parking is really easy and you can get pretty close to your campsite. Overall, beautiful place and we're excited to come back again.
