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!
