Rick’s Place is truly a gem hidden on a back country road in Henry County, Va. Nestled on the banks of the Smith River, this oasis offers up beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and tranquil sounds of the river.
There’s a small cabin, a fifth wheel camper and a pull behind camper for rent. The pull behind camper has its own covered porch with onsite bathroom. There are also three other sites available with full hook ups and there’s a small area at the end of the camping area that accommodates primitive tent camping. Primitive may not be the correct word to use as all of the sites have a beautiful view of the river and access to the lower riverfront terrace. On the terrace, there’s a horseshoe pit, hammock and patio area as well as several areas to access the river. Rick prides himself on taking care of his guests and provides such things as firewood, canoes and a paddle boat at no extra cost!
Henry County, Va has always been one of our favorite places to explore. Fairy stone Park, Philpott Reservoir, the town of Bassett and all of the neighboring towns and communities offer plenty of places to check out. As a matter of fact the Philpott Reservoir spillway is just a short distance up the road and has a large parking area great for a relaxing picinic. Trust me, we know!!! So the next time you’re looking for a relaxing get away or a place to use as a base camp from which to explore, be sure to consider Rick’s place....
