Our farm is 65 miles from Washington, DC and 3 miles from several grocery stores. History, hiking and adventure abound here. There are 7 Washington homes in this county that was once surveyed by George Washington. Your campsite is just a few miles from Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, white water rafting, fishing, the Appalachian Trail, and Hollywood Casino, but you will be camping by a small stream, surrounded by hundreds of acres of farm land.< p>We have cattle, horses and goats on the farm. We will have many babies being born from late winter into the spring this year. Last year we had 3 calves born before April 19th. < p>We routinely see eagles, hawks, herons, ducks and too many other birds to list. Deer, foxes, raccoons and other wildlife are also commonly seen.
We provide a pop up camper with 2 queen size beds, a toilet, gas stove and gas grill. There is no electricity other than the battery on the camper (we will keep the battery charged.) There is cold running water in the trailer. We also provide a fire ring, firewood and picnic table. Bring your own bedding and cooking utensils. You are a short walk from the main house.

The vibe at Cattail Run
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Tom, your host of Cattail Run, is sweet as pie. His property is down a long gravel driveway that was flush with bright green fields on either side. When we got to the 2 story farmhouse, Tom was outside waiting for us. Just on the other side of his house, to the right, we drove down a small grassy area to his pop-up camper. What a nice spot it’s in! He has taken the camper on many road trips but it still seems brand new. It is equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, two clean beds (but bring your own sheets and pillows), and a table to eat at. Outside is an installed propane grill, picnic table, water spigot and small fire ring with some chopped wood and kindling. You are allowed to drive your vehicle down to the camper to unload, but you must drive back up to the driveway for the night. Too much dew accumulates in the grass and you won’t be able to get out in the morning.
There are some cows and horses on the property as well, so if you need your animal fix you can get it here! Tom is planning to put up a few sections of privacy fence on the side of his brothers house so you can feel a bit more on your own. He also plans to hook up the water in the camper. For now, you need to fill a pot or pitcher at the outdoor spigot for flushing the toilet or washing dishes.
We thoroughly enjoyed out time out at Cattail and hope you will book this spot if you are in the area!
