Lovely rustic campground well shaded in the woods, Full hookup up sites and the best is I could bring my horse along and ride. What makes Big Ridge so special is the folks that own & run it. Best service (above and beyond anywhere I have been) personal care for each camper or group of campers. Full knowledge of the...

We camped here with our horses and friends for about a week. The owners were wonderful, very friendly and helpful, showed us the trails and checked on us every day. They even brought us hay when we ran out! The trails had good footing for our horses and great views of the mountains! The outside stalls for the horses were...

I went with my horse and some 4-H friends and we all loved it! When we went, there was only one other person in the horse campground. The Lost River trails were beautiful and the owners were very nice. They checked on us a few times a day and gave us everything needed. They also told us about the trails....

This was a lovely getaway for Memorial Day Weekend. The drive to the campground was beautiful, with scenic overlooks and green trees at every turn. We were tent camping, so I wasn't sure what to expect since Big Ridge (judging from their website) seemed to be mostly RVs. We were very pleasantly surprised to have a huge tent site (sites...

We booked here for a quick getaway in our camper from the greater DC area. For the cost, this campground is easily a five star review. Most of the larger chains would easily charge double what Big Ridge costs. There are several hiking trails that you can access right from the campground and a horseback riding stable just down the...

Clean bathhouse (only one for the whole place, but it's sufficient); hot water. Spigots near each campsite. No tent pads, but we found a sufficient place for ours. Quiet, small, peaceful. We had a lovely stream running by our campsite (#6). Adjacent to riding stables and hiking.

We took our horses and stayed at the horse campground. Electric, water, and sewer hookups at each site. 10' x 10' pipe corrals for the horses, all of them shaded. Primitive camp otherwise -- no showers, bathhouse, gift shop, concession, etc. but we didn't go to shop and primp. We went to ride. The trails are fantastic. We saw LOTS...
