Stokesville Campground (Virginia)

After the Rocky Mountain Fire scorched much of the earth nearby and closed access to the Argow Cabin, we had to make new plans for our weekend in the woods.

I'd heard about some extensive trailwork surrounding the newly built Stokesville Lodge and was delighted to learn that camping was still permitted on the same site, so we headed towards Harrisonburg to check it out. Camping on the site cost $10 per person - well worth the price to have so many singletrack options leading you into the woods from your campsite.

Joey and I chose a loop to Lookout Mountain while Rebecca, Paul, and Eryn checked out the trails within and around the campgrounds with the dogs. Our ride was stellar - technical climbs and dicey, fast-paced descents with rocks strategically placed to divert water and send us flying into the next corner.
