High Country Horse Camp, LLC is a premier equestrian campground facility open to both small and large groups. Come experience the Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area in the highlands of Virginia. The surrounding areas offer numerous activities for the adventurous heart, such as horseback riding, hiking, fishing, swimming, and mountain biking.

MISSION: High Country Horse Camp exists to mentor disabled Veterans in recovering from traumatic stress and/or physical disabilities associated with military experiences. Our goal is for these individuals to recreate as a bonding group in the form of fly fishing, biking the Virginia Creeper Trail, and horse back riding in the Virginia Highlands. To accomplish this, at no cost to the Veterans, Scout troops, Church Groups, and horse back riders pay nominal camping fees to offset the cost of the Veterans’ Stand Down program.

We focus on serving equestrian clientele and group campers. We offer full RV sites with water and electrical connections, covered stalls for horses, and primitive tent camping areas. High Country Horse Camp is strategically located adjacent to numerous Virginian horse trails and offers abundant opportunities for horseback riding. The cool summer weather and vast mountain panoramas overwhelm first-time visitors. Mount Rogers offers some of the most scenic riding on the East Coast. Many trails meander atop grassy balds where wild ponies roam, and cross federally designated wilderness areas such as the Lewis Fork, Little Wilson Creek, and Little Dry Run.

The popular Appalachian Trail and Virginia Creeper Trail are easily accessible and only minutes away! Families and other groups can utilize our campground to serve as their base camp during their visit to the majestic Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area.

  • The campground is located a short distance off Interstate-81 in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains.
  • Just 15 minutes to the Creeper Trail Head, allowing early entry to the trail. Bike rentals are available at White Top Mountain.
  • The 30 minute express trip back to the campground via Love’s Mill Road from Damascus eliminates the old narrow and curvy Highway 58 route.
  • Reasonably priced food items are available for delivery from Chilhowie Pizza.

We are teamed with Mt. Rogers Veterans Stand Down and Dead Drift Outfitters to help disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings.
