Blue Ridge Bungalow
The newest addition to Back Yard Campground, this private "camp" site takes glamp to a new level.  Queen size memory foam bed, well equipped kitchenette (including frig, microwave, infrared cooktop, sink and a nice bar), cozy living area with wi-fi streaming tv; all these amenities and more make this space the place to be before and after a hike or bike ride in nearby Dupont State Forest. Step out onto the patio and look down over the garden to the creek and the mountains beyond.  Share the attached shower and Porta Jon with other campers. We have done all we know to make this a comfortable and memorable stay for you.  Every bit of Blue Ridge Bungalow is constructed from recycled, reclaimed and repurposed materials, and hand-made into a home-away- from-home,
just for you.
  The Tent Sites
SITE #1: Plenty of room here, very close to the Creek-side, closest to the shower, longest hike to set up camp (about 30 yards). This site has been a favorite since we started sharing the grounds.

SITE #2: Direct path to the creek, wide open view of farm at the base of the mountain across the creek, including the horses, cows, donkeys and geese. Most-picked site, smaller, suitable for one tent with one, once-used, set of hammock trees.

SITE #3: Larger lot, also creek-side, will accomodate two tents, straight-shot access to the road, easy in, easy out. Beautiful view, last flood-waters carved a shelf out, waiting for lawn chairs to be set up right above the creek (bring your own).

SITE # 4: My personal favorite, beside the grapes and the barn, sheltered by a hill on the north, just above the other sites. Drive directly to this site.  Smaller, one tent only.  Working on sheltered picnic area for this site.

SITE # 5: Book this site in conjunction with Blue Ridge Bungalow, and invite your friends for dinner, so they'll invite you to the campfire.  Just across the garden from the Bungalow, two minute walk to the shower, through our always-in-progress flower garden.  Straight out to the road, for early morning jump to the falls.
