Overview

Overview

Old Virginia provides group equestrian camping just minutes from a large network of horse trails in the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area. Old Virginia is a secluded, picturesque campground that can accommodate up to 25 guests and 25 horses.

The picturesque views of the mountains and the trickling sounds of the stream create a relaxing, serene vibe for visitors at the primitive camping site.

Natural Features:

The campground sits in the Fairwood Valley along a stream that flows into Fox Creek. The valley is part of the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests in western Virginia. The forests span 1.8 million acres of rugged Appalachians through Virginia and parts of West Virginia and Kentucky.

Recreation:

Old Virginia offers easy access to the Virginia Highlands Horse Trail, which connects to the Iron Mountain Trail. From the Iron Mountain Trail, riders can also access the Virginia Creeper Trail to the west or the New River Trail to the east. The Virginia Creeper Trail boasts 33.4 miles of scenery with about 100 trestles and bridges.

Facilities:

No drinking water is provided. Please bring plenty of water and tools for manure removal. The campground is easily accessed from a paved road and two portable toilets are provided. Showers are not available, but can be access at nearby campgrounds for a fee. The nearest pay phone is at Grindstone Campground.

Horses may drink from the stream.
