Riverside Camping

Camping Along the Potomac River

Our riverside campsites are located on our scenic wooded riverfront property right along the Potomac River. Our campsites are perfect for the campers who want the full outdoor camping experience. After a day of activities pitch your tent and relax near a crackling fire listening to the beautiful sounds of the river in the great Virginia outdoors. Sunbathe and fish right from the riverside camping area.

Each campsite comes equipped with a picnic table, fire ring and charcoal grill. Our riverside does have portable outhouse access and our nicely appointed bathhouse with hot showers and indoor plumbing is only a 10 minute hike away. All campsites are located on our private riverfront, secured each evening at the gate, providing access only to campers and cabin guests.

Reserve your firewood now and pick it up after checking in. Fire starters are not provided but can be purchased on site at our Bear Mountain Market.

Each site accommodates 1 tent with up to 4 people. For groups of 5 or more, choose the booking option below that matches your group size.

Please Note: Guests must have a 4-wheel drive vehicle to access the Riverside Tent Camping area. Guests also have the option to hike a switchback trail down to their site.

Please don’t bring firewood with you when you camp. If you find or buy wood, please don’t take any back home with you. Burn it all or give it to other campers. Foreign pests can travel with wood, and carrying firewood from one area to another can be detrimental to the local forest. We have firewood to purchase, or you can collect wood / kindling on the ground if found near the campsite.
