Love this small little place!
Beautiful hike. We were with a group of 5 kids under 6 years old and we made it to the top huffing and puffing. It was well kept and worth the climb.
The river spots are amazing - just a short walk from parking. So peaceful and the sound of the river drowns out any nearby noise. Friendly owners and the little camp store has everything you may have forgotten. We love this campground and hope to return soon!
Hands down, one of the best waterfall hikes in the southeast. Great views, beautiful in the fall time, one of the best waterfalls I've seen, and an all around great hike. Just be sure to be careful not to climb out into the falls. Plenty of people have died from doing just that.
This is a great hike to do with the family, as its not too strenuous. Also, the lower falls can be seen after only about .1 miles of walking on a paved path, so that part is wheel chair friendly. You have to go an additional 2-3 miles to get to the top. On the way up, there are tons of viewpoints of the waterfall. It's a very long, continuous waterfall, which is why it's one of the longest on the east coast.
Great hike, worth the views.
If you're looking to camp, there is a campground not too far from the hike. There are also tons of other great hikes in the area.
This campground sits along a river fed by a waterfall just a short hike away. It is the perfect blend of peace and nature as it has a tone of shade making it a perfect summer camp spot. Lots of adventures to take in the surrounding areas and the owners are the nicest people!!! A lot of things are bought on the trust system(pay for what you use for firewood, put store items on a tab until check out). Loved this place
Crabtree falls camp ground is one of my favorite places to go, we go every year and have been for 6 years now. It's quiet, peaceful and reminds me of a simpler time. The owners are amazing people! There are 4 cabins that are awesome and tent sites all right along a gorgeous stretch of the tyro river. You will be lulled to sleep by the river at night. There is a lush tree canopy throughout the summer so we typically don't even need sunscreen. There are numerous local swimming holes around the campground as well as some amazing hikes. Bring your water shoes and get ready for an awesome experience!
Sites are right on the river, we had a walk to which gave us some extra privacy. Beautiful area for hiking, lots leading off of the AT. campground hosts are very friendly.
This is very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and close to Charlottesville and Staunton. The falls are a great hike and there are lots of services nearby. A great Parkway stop.
This camp ground easily accessible. Store, Bathrooms, and running water are very close. Seemed very family friendly. Some of the campsites are super close to a creek and its worth trying to get one of those! these sites are walk in, but there are some drive up sites in other areas. Crabtree falls and the AT-the Priest shelter are very close!.
This camp ground was nice and cozy. The tent sites we stayed in were 10 ft away from the Tye river, we literally fell asleep to the sound of the water every night. The campground did have facilities that were about a quarter mile walk away from our sites; this is something to consider if you are camping with older folks or children. The vibes were peaceful, no loud or wild campers. Crabtree Falls is a mile up the road and very easy to get to the trail head. The AT is also close by and easily accessed.
