This site is perfect for those searching for a true camping experience at a fair price. You'll be amazed at not only the high-end nature of your surroundings, but at the value of your stay. This site is for those that want to pitch their own tent & be at their own pace; however, we do provide a tent already set-up with the Backcountry Plus option, along with a flirepit, cooking grate, fire extinguisher, matches, a small set of firewood, table and two chairs, a 5-gallon jug of water, and even a loo under a pop-up tent with biodegradable waste bags. For your convenience, we also provide a trash can, & bags. Regardless of any extras, we provide a flat grassy patch of stellar land below our Falls for you to set up your own ephemeral campsite, or just to bring less & add to what we already provide. We like to offer the value of a readymade site with the flexibility to customise your own, & to offer to guests the option to have to worry less by taking advantage of what we provide. You are in total control of your campsite, provided it's within the environs of our stablished site, you can customise your own, & bring all you want or as little! We can advise in person should you have questions. Nestled in the Alleghany Highlands of the Southern Valley of Virginia, Beaverdam Falls is an historic series of waterfalls at the headwaters of Dunlap Creek and is the terminus for Sweet Springs Creek. Surrounded by the verdant George Washington National Forest, our portion which includes, the Upper Falls, displays a constant waterfall of around 40-feet in height and numerous beautiful cascades peppered throughout our creek. The 60-acre private tract of unparalleled Virginia countryside will simply leave you in humble amazement that places like "this" actually exist!

Site Guidelines

Please visit our website: to review our map, waiver, & offerings. Please do not climb any of the Travertine-Marl rock formations around the Falls or in the basins around them; due to the lack of stone around the Falls, the mineral rock--under constant adaptation & change as with the water--it can be very brittle, unstable, & dangerous. Abide by the swimming rules as posted. We ask that you also do not damage any plants, carve your name into any trees, or carry any animals out with you! Bring good shoes for treading water: you'll want to LIVE in the creek! But, be careful, the mineral rocks are slippery and watch for the waterfall and creek ledge! No fires outside designated areas, & no foraging.

From Melbourne, FL, I'm a teacher with my MA in French from UVA. After my study & teaching in Richmond & at UVA, I'm fortunate to now be in nature. I love being outdoors: managing our family lands in FL, VA, & WV. And, I spend much of my time at Beaverdam Falls--our private family property. But, really, we're just custodians! We share this land with campers & visitors through Tentrr & Airbnb, and for events, but our goal is maintaining our land as a private nature preserve, esp. for beavers!
