The "Top of the Rock" Tentrr Signature Campsite at Beaverdam Falls:

This is one of four exclusive Tentrr options available. The "Top of the Rock" campsite is situated on amazing ground! It's situated just above the largest waterfall on fabulous high travertine rock, but tucked away far enough to still retain privacy and seclusion from the main viewing area below, which is just a short walk down a gravel trail. The rope bridge is also just a stones throw away. This stellar site has a full frontal view of the main water and creek basins below but is not right on top of the falls, so as to be too loud or too visible. And for the most part you are nestled under shade trees and are at the best crossroads on the property to take advantage of all the views and sites. Running water and outdoor shower are provided on site, as well as drive-up parking.

Our Signature sites come with everything offered through a Tentrr Signature Site as well as some cushy extras most do not: Generous fire wood, small battery fan: 2 battery LED lights, mint scented trash bags (to scare away the critters), matches & lighter, fire starters, sponge, toilet paper, environmentally friendly coconut oil body wash & shampoo, bug spray, charcoal, butane burner, coffee percolator. There is also a small amount of utensils, plates, coffee cups & cookware. Bedding is also offered as an Extra. Each site is also sprayed with insect and bug repellant regularly. For those who need special accommodations or certain requests, please ask--we may be able to accommodate. None of our campsites are ADA-friendly, as they are in the woods, and in the hills around the Falls. We also provide portable, commercial Porto-O-John toilets at the check-in barn, & down near the Falls viewing area, which all guests may use.

If you desire complete privacy, we offer you the option to book our second Signature site through Tentrr, "The Cattails," or to arrange such requests for an additional fee in advance of your stay. This site is one of four through Tentrr, & although this preserve is private and an exclusive property only for Tentrr & Airbnb guests, there may be other campers, fly fishers, or activity going on elsewhere by the Falls or on the land, as we are an active nature preserve. Most guests never see each other, nor are campsites visible from each other, but you do not have complete unfettered access to the property. Your booking only ensures that you have your site reserved not the whole property. The property is open only to reserved guests, so there are no crowds.

Depending on the weather and vehicle, you normally drive within yards of the campsite. In a two-wheel drive vehicle you may wish to park by the entrance in our designated area.

Property Information:

Nestled in the Alleghany Highlands of the Southern Valley of Virginia, Beaverdam Falls is an historic series of waterfalls at the headwaters of Dunlap Creek and serves as the terminus for Sweet Springs Creek. Surrounded by the verdant George Washington National Forest, our portion, the Upper Falls, consists of a constant waterfall of around 40-feet in height and numerous beautiful cascades peppered throughout our creek. The 60-acre private tract of unparalleled Virginia countryside will simply amaze and delight.

Sweet Springs Creek decorates our picturesque private property, and serves as a long trout stream of calcified rock, chalybeate water, and ancient beaver dams. Beaverdam Falls is a rare place for the lack of stone and the centuries of beavers who have left their trace in our creek and swamp, called the Stick Marsh, which has an active beaver dam. Be careful! They do bite!

Beaverdam Falls is also home to an active lick for wildlife, and one can also stubble upon various small ponds and creeks that trickle out of our mountains. The rich biodiversity of the land also includes a gigantic sulphur cave that is as rare as the falls are beautiful.

Beaverdam Falls are notable for not only the clear blue water, but also for the lore that surrounds their history. Gazed on by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor during their visit to America and fished by the likes of Robert E. Lee and even perhaps Thomas Jefferson, many notable people as well as local inhabitants have enjoyed the Falls for centuries during their visits to the famous spring resorts in the neighboring area. We have only one question: Will you be next?
Whether you are just looking to relax in front of an outstanding waterfall, hike in the hardwood forest, swim in the creek, or just to gaze at the celestial stars in stunning black clarity, Beaverdam Falls will not disappoint!

*We welcome all people, races, genders, personalities, etc., & do not discriminate based on any measure. LGBTQ-friendly. Please leave your politics, as well as stress/worries at home!

The Space:
Relax in high-style at the top of Beaverdam Falls. Sleep adjacent the whirling & calming noise of a gigantic waterfall & overlook the lower ponds & creek basins from surprising privacy and seclusion. Take a hike--no, really! Choose to walk down to the Falls or view it all from the Rope Bridge!

Guest Access:
This is an exclusive Tentrr Signature campsite. Tentrr partners with farmers, ranchers, and other property owners to offer unique outdoor accommodations on beautiful private land. Our campsites are off-the-grid which means they generally do not have access to electricity, wifi, or modern plumbing. Instead, they offer the chance to relax, unplug, and fully experience nature! As a general rule, Tentrr campsites do not have access to electricity and cell service may be hard to come by. You'll have the entire campsite to yourself, as you'll be the only Campers enjoying this piece of paradise.

Each campsite includes a 10'x12' safari-style canvas tent on a raised platform, and you'll find one queen bed or a queen-size bunk bed inside (each site is different, see photos for the exact setup). Larger groups can also use the extra 5-person pop-up dome tent that’s provided (you’re welcome to bring your own camping gear too). You'll also have a 6-ft picnic table, outdoor fire pit, 2 Tentrr Adirondack chairs, and a heating source to keep you warm and toasty at night.

Toilets: Every campsite is equipped with a camp toilet (we call it the Tentrr Loo). This is a simple wooden box with a toilet seat and a bucket inside. Line the bucket with a CleanWaste bag supplied at the camp (or another appropriate plastic bag) prior to use. Afterwards, simply tie the bag up and place it in a trash bag. We got this idea from bathrooms used on NASA spaceships, and we've used the Tentrr Loo countless times ourselves- don't worry!

Showers: Every Signature campsite comes with a Coleman Sun Shower. The sun shower has a reservoir that holds up to 5 gallons of water, potentially enough for multiple showers. It's constructed of heat-locking material that warms the water when it's left in the sun, even on cool days.

Other Things to Note:
MUST READ BEFORE ARRIVAL:

Upon arrival you will see a check-in barn. Check-in is contactless, & there you will find information to be read, a wifi hotspot, & additional camp supplies for purchase. Sign-in the guest book, fill out our waiver, & then you may proceed directly to your campsite.

Please arrive whenever you like, so long as it is after 2 PM; checkout is after 11:30. Beau is often around the property, & will stop by to greet you, & answer any questions--usually after you've arrived at your site, & sometime in the late afternoon to early evening. You are welcome to arrive earlier & stay later, provided you ask, & we don't have back-to-back bookings.

Please put our address, 1100 Kanawha Trail, Covington, VA 24426, into your GPS before losing service or leaving home, as our entrance is on a seemingly hidden, & often missed curve.

There are two black signs on white fencing that say "Beaverdam Falls" on each side of the driveway at the property entrance. For reference, our airbnb rental, The Earlehurst Cottage, a white craftsman-style home and it's white 3-bay barn is directly above the driveway entrance on a hill. Look for the sign "1100 Kanawha Trail" on the side of the road, immediately next to the property driveway.

Please send all messages or inquiries to info@beaverdamfalls.com, as we do not use messaging through the Tentrr App, and please give us time to respond as we only have WiFi on the property and are often away from service.

Please visit our website www.beaverdamfalls.com for all general information & site links.

ADVISORY: For those arriving in rainy &/or rainy conditions, running water is turned off at our campsites during the cold, winter months, but you will always have the 5-gallon potable water cooler provided with all Tentrr sites. 4x4 is required during snowy & heavy rain conditions; guests can always park at the check-in barn, & walk to their sites if needed. All sites are about 7-minutes at max from the check-in barn.

What an amazing getaway! literally no cell service which is sometimes what you need. there was someone to check in on you every night in case you needed some thing. plenty of amenities and everything that you can think of that you might’ve forgotten to pack. so many places to explore around the campsite. beautiful views everywhere you go. Your own little slice of heaven. I can’t wait to book another trip back!

Hidden Gem
This was a great overnight trip. It was easy to check in and everything you need is provided for you. Our site was right next to the waterfall, which made for a great nights sleep. We were able to walk down to it, swim and relax most of the afternoon. There is so much to explore on this property. There is a short deer trail that leads back to the stream down from the waterfall. You can also kayak although we weren’t able to due to time constraints. Beau was very friendly and welcoming. Gave us a lot of information on the property. There is a garden that guests can visit and pick things for dinner. We will definitely be visiting this property again. Great find!
