Camping or Glamping?



Camping can seem intimidating or maybe just too involved for those who really want to relax on their vacations. In reality, you have the best of both worlds when you camp at a place like Small Country Campground.

Tent camping under the stars, next to a beautiful lake, is what comes to mind when most people think of an enjoyable camping trip. With multiple tent sites, some providing water and electricity, Small country Campground can meet the needs of anyone who is interested in simply popping a tent and enjoying the outdoors for their camping vacation.

For those who are not interested in unzipping their front door, we also offer cabin camping, which provides a door, roof, and beds! There are no bathrooms in these units, but we have full bathroom facilities on site.

Still looking for more luxurious accommodations? Go all out glamping in one of our Park Model Bunk Houses. These units include bedrooms, kitchens, living area, and decks to provide the ultimate comfort and livability during your stay at Small Country Campground. We also have a convenience store on site, so you never have to travel away to pick up items you may run out of.

The benefits don’t stop there. Those interested in upscale camping in an RV have the option of trying one out at our campground. Our Park Model RV’s provide a separate bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and dining area.  They also have a large deck with table and chairs, picnic table, fire pit and outdoor grill. Get a feel for RV camping before you decide to make one into your choice lodging.

Those who own their RV’s already can take advantage of our multiple RV hook up sites.  Small Country Campground offers both full and partial hook up sites, and we have 3 dump stations for disposal from sites without hook ups.

The gem of Small Country Campground is the Manor house. Rent this for the ultimate camping or glamping experience. The 1800’s log cabin was built in 1823 and used as a field hospital during the Battle of Trevilian Station during the Civil War. Added onto in 1893 and then again in 1996, this old house is enchanting with its old antique furniture and furnishings, but also modern with soaring glass windows overlooking Lake Ruth Ann from the kitchen, dining room, and upstairs balcony.


No matter how you want to spend your camping vacation, Small Country Campground offers the right accommodations to suit your needs.

What is the best time to book a camping trip?

Camping is a great vacation for people of all ages. At the right campground you can rough it while tent camping, or enjoy a more modern stay in a park model cabin or RV. You can also camp any time of year!

We enjoy camping any and every day, but we want to share some of the overall best times to camp with us throughout the year.
