Trail Camping VA, NC, MD, WV, Wherever

Hey all,

I'm in Richmond VA and I want to hop in my jeep with my wife, dog, a tent and supplies and drive out to some remote location (on easyish trails) and camp a night or two. I don't mind a few hours of driving beforehand either.

Any suggestions?

Do you know of any specific trails that are particularly good there/where they are?

Uwharrie National Forest is a good place. I have been there 4 times. They have multiple trails for Jeeps, ATV and motocross. They also have camping. It is a fairly remote location. Bunch of people go there though. I don't know what kind of trail you are looking for but here are a couple that I have taken my Jeep down.


None of the videos are mine but it will show you what kind of trails to expect. Hope this helps. My wife has taken her Jeep down Falls Dam Trail.

just wait until RVA floods again from a storm. I'm sure it will make an awesome urban trail! lol

I live by Richmond and can agree that Uwharrie is by far the best spot for wheeling and camping if you don't mind a 4-5 hr drive.

But for remote camping and good offroading, Shoe Creek trail is where we head. Go to Crab Tree Falls (2hr drive) and just keep driving straight instead of turning left into the parking area by the latrine.

Be sure to hit the breweries on 151 first and grab a few growlers of "survival fluid".

What I plan to do-

1) Grab a DeLorme Atlas and Gazeteer for West Va.
DeLorme Gazeteer

2) Show up here:
Seneca State Forest

A nice campground. Not too primitive (pit toilets), but not too refined either. And it's cheap.

3) Use the campground as a 'home base' to explore all of the pig paths, logging roads, and "improved roads" in the area. Lost of good forest roads in the area.


Last time I was there a few years ago, we were camping, but minivan based. DYING to get back there just as soon as my Jeep shows up at the dealer. The camping is great. The area is fantastic!
