Boley Field provides old-fashioned, rustic group and family camping. This large, open field is good for groups that wish to picnic and tent camp together but require few amenities. Natural Features: The campground is located at the base of Brush Mountain in a narrow valley along Poverty Creek. The surrounding forest provides shade. The road to the camping area is unpaved. Recreation: Poverty Creek flows adjacent to the field’s picnic area where visitors can enjoy splashing in its cool waters. Hikers and mountain bikers can easily access the 17-mile Poverty Creek Trail System from Boley Field. Facilities: Boley Field is rented for groups of 50 or less. The field has an entrance gate and contains a group fire ring, picnic table, and a standing grill and vault toilet. There is no potable water, no hookups and no trash collection. Vehicles towing a trailer hitch will hit the ground at the creek crossing. Nearby Attractions: Boley Field is located 20 minutes from Blacksburg, VA, home of the Virginia Tech Hokies. The 13 mile Poverty Creek Trail System is adjacent to this camping area.
I'd recommend a vehicle with decent ground clearance since you have to cross a creek and some medium sized rocks to get there, but it's totally worth it. There's a fire pit, picnic table, outdoor grill, and latrines. I've camped there both in groups and solo. It's secluded in the National Forest, but still really close to civilization.
