Very private waterfront Camping or Event site on 21 ac deep water James River Farm, and just 8 miles from downtown Richmond.
Located on the river where America was born, we are offering 400' of James River frontage and over an acre of land for your own personal camping or event usage. For camping we can supply you with a two room tent with a queen size air mattress or you can bring your own gear. RVs are also welcome. There are three grills (one small propane Weber), a smoker and 3 large propane burners on site as well as coolers, a kayak, floating Island (8 person float), 2000 watt super quiet Honda generator that powers lights in the trees and on the ground, a tub live bait station, fans, microwave and a bluetooth PA/Karaoke system, all of which can be used at additional cost. Fishing equipment, tackle and bait are also offered for your use at additional cost if you don't have your own.
If you have a boat, the Richmond area's nicest boat landing, Osborne Landing, is less than a half mile down the road or river. You can launch your boat there, ride up to Richmond and dock for lunch or dinner or take a sightseeing tour all the way to the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. There is also a great county park there with children's playgrounds, a fishing pier and hiking trails, and best of all, it's FREE! Enjoy boating, tubing, wake boarding, skiing, kayaking, canoeing, jet skiing, paddle boarding and just about any other water activity you can think of. Oh, and did I mention we are located on one of the most productive fishing stretches of the river!
Just want to have a nice relaxing visit where you can just sit back and chill? Enjoy the peace and quiet and take in the views where you are likely to see bald eagles, osprey, cranes, great blue heron, egrets, various ducks, canada geese, boaters and more.
Want to take in the local history the Richmond area is known for? There are various tours in Richmond and a number of great museums. Civil war battlefields and forts are only minutes away, early historic American riverfront plantations, Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown, two water parks, Bush Gardens and Kings Dominion are all within a short 45 minute drive of us. There is so much history to take in and other things to do around here we will be happy to provide you with a more extensive list if you wish. There are also great restaurants and nightlife close by.
There is a porta potty down at the campsite and you are also welcome to use the full bath/shower up at the house if you need to. You are also welcome to use the washer and dryer.
Don't want to have to cook or store all your own food? I'm a pretty good cook, so I've been told, and will be happy to whip you up anything from burgers and dogs, sandwiches, philly style hoagies and cheesesteaks, my own carolina style BBQ and ribs, all the way up to full blown gourmet seafood and steak meals. This service is offered at additional cost and only when I have the time and provided you have made your request well ahead of time.
Looking for a beautiful event sight for weddings, family reunions, work parties, etc.? We also offer private catered BBQ and Ribs on site. Please contact us for more info.
