US Army Garrison Fort A.P. Hill HQ
Like to go camping but hate the heat. Then join us over Veterans Day weekend (9-11 of November) along with your families for a fun filled weekend with other Team River Runner Chapter members from around the region as we celebrate the long holiday weekend with the Mid Atlantic Regional Area Family Weekend event. For the Fredericksburg VA area the temperatures in November normally range in the low 70’s to mid 60’s during the day and in the middle 40’s during the night.
Saturday the 9th of November will be a travel day to check in at the venue (Fort A.P. Hill) , and check out all the cool things (fishing ponds, archery, hunting, paint ball, etc) that the base has to offer. Additionally, we will have a bounce house for the kids prior to a catered dinner that evening to welcome everyone to the event.
Sunday is excursion day and we have a lot of planned activities in the works to include: Whitewater, Flatwater/Kayak Fishing on site, Fly Fishing from shore on site, potential rock climbing in the immediate area, and potential Blacksmithing on site. Monday is Veterans day so we’ll share some breakfast and then pack up to head back home.
We have 30 free camp sites reserved and ready for the taking. Although the camping area is brand new and within walking distance to just about everything you’d want to do (Flatwater/Kayaking/fishing, hiking, bounce house, etc) on the base it also has a group fire pit, hot showers, laundry machines, television, and internet.
For those that would like to attend but are more into glamping than camping we also have a few cabins and RV sites (for those that would like to bring their own campers) that can be purchased on a first come first serve basis by you. We will be providing a $5 per night refund to those in RV’s or Cabins since that’s what it cost per night to be in a tent and we are paying for that. If you plan to bring an RV or pop up camper you must reserve a RV site as the RV’s and popup campers are not allowed in the Tent area.
The RV sites with full hook ups are $35 a night. The cabins are as follows. If you’d like to call and reserve either one (RV site or cabins) please let them know that you are a part of the Team River Runner Regional event that will be taking place over that time. This will help keep everything together for our group reservations, and so that you’ll get the discounted nightly rate listed below for the cabins. The number to call to reserve either the RV sites or the cabins is 1-804-633-8244. Space is limited and we are not the only ones utilizing the facilities on base so if you have any interest in making a reservation for either an RV site or a cabin, please do so sooner than later.
