Looney Cabin

Kissing Rock Camp in it's current incarnation is a primitive camp for the mostly self sufficient. It is centrally located in the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, about 12 miles off I-81.

Horses may be kept in paddocks, or your own electric pens. Stalls are available.  We invite you to bring your horse, camp and ride the 63 mile Virginia Highlands Horse Trail (VHHT) and it's nearly 200 miles of intersecting trails.  KRC offers shady campsites, along with the safety and quiet that seems so hard to come by these days. Horses may be kept in paddocks, or your own electric pens. Stalls are available.  The trail in this area is not steep, and relatively free of rocks. There are loops ranging from 2-5 hours.

The "Looney Cabin" located in Camp, Va. is about a 6 hour ride east, toward the Little Dry Run Wilderness Area. It is also rustic and has direct access to the VHHT. Whether you like to ride loops, of prefer a longer trek, Kissing Rock can probably accommodate your riding style. Hikers, tent campers, fishermen and mountain bikers will also find a great get away experience at either camp.
