You may already know that Devils Backbone uses the tag-line “Craft an Adventure”, but I want to tell you about a 48-hour stay at the new Devils Backbone Campground. There’s an adventure for your entire family, even your dog (on a leash).
At Devils Backbone Campground there are campsites available for motorhomes, travel trailers and tents. Need electric and WiFi? They have it available. You can cook over your own campfire or dine at Devils Backbone Base Camp. The brewery, distillery, The Summit Coffee Shop, and multiple dining options are only a quick walk from your campsite. No matter your camping style, you will be comfortable.
Our dog, a Boykin Spaniel named Geechee, also enjoyed her visit to Devils Backbone Campground and Brewing Company. She especially enjoyed the groomed on-site trails and the brewery dog area. As a side note, she also enjoyed her visit to near-by Bold Rock Cidery where she took a dip in the Rockfish River and then joined us for a cider at their Barrel Barn. Please remember, you can bring your dog, but they must remain on a leash.
Of course, you need to be 21 or over to sample the famous Devils Backbone beer (and now spirits), but many non-alcoholic options are available. The brewery also offers a kid’s menu. For those that are Gluten Free, the brewery provides cider and GF bottled beer as well as GF menu options. Bring your family and enjoy a few days in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
Here are just a few of the amenities at Devils Backbone Campground and are all within a short drive of the campground:
Hiking and Mountain Bike Trail On-Site
The Devils Backbone Gardens and Greenhouses
The Summit Coffee Shop showcasing locally roasted coffee from Trager Brothers
A Farm-to-Table Menu at Devils Backbone Eateries
The Nellysford Farm Market on Saturday mornings (Through early November)
Wintergreen Resort with 30+ miles of hiking trails and the Cliffhanger MTN Bike Trail
Imagine spending the day exploring Nelson County and the Blue Ridge Mountains. You wrap-up the day at Devils Backbone Campground beside a campfire with a view of the sun setting behind Three Ridges. You are dining on some Devils Backbone BBQ or grilling vegetables just purchased at the Nellysford Farm Market. It’s the end of a perfect DW&S escape day.
