Remember a few weeks ago when I told you my aunt and uncle bought their first Airstream? Well, they’ve been taking it to the Highland Haven Airstream Park in Copper Hill, Virginia and invited us to tag along this past weekend.

Highland Haven has 46 tree-lined sites with full hook-ups and incredible views of the Virginia mountains.  We had a few crazy storms with otherworldly colors and winds… but it was still awesome!

I call this one "Sunset with thunderstorm".

The spots are owned by shareholders who can camp for the summers (the park closes for the winter in October), or rent out their sites to guests (like us) for $27.50 a night. We were in spots #23 and #24 and they were great.

The park is on 70+ acres with fruit trees, several hiking trails and a little waterfall — the dogs loved it.

This actually reminded us of Whidbey Island.

The nearest town to the campground is Floyd, VA, which also reminded us a bit of Langley, WA. It’s a small town with the expected gas station (big enough for RVs), coffee shop —

a really well stocked natural food store, Harvest Moon, a bar called Dogtown Roadhouse and an fantastic Country Store that has live music and a radio show.

There are several ways to get to the park, but one isn’t recommended for RV travel (info available on the Highland Haven website). We took one way up and a different way back, passing through some really cute small towns and farmland.

Tobacco. Lots and lots.

Coming from the south, you eventually run into The Crooked Road which winds through several counties of lower Virginia along a historical route known for bluegrass. You can find venues all along the route with festivals, concerts and dances all year long. We’re already planning our trips next year to catch some of the great music! Also, this road is called “crooked” for a reason — there are severe bends and turns in the road, proceed with caution!

If you’re in the area, definitely check out Highland Haven and the town of Floyd!
