Camping Douthat StateIf you’re drawn to the County of Bath because of its beautiful natural setting in the mountains of Virginia, why not complete the experience by getting close to nature at a local campground. It is one of the most rustic mountain vacation experiences you can get and a great way to make memories that every family member will treasure forever. They don’t have all the modern conveniences of home, but the endless outdoor activities trumps the need for cable. After all, the remoteness of the campgrounds makes them some of the most popular camping sites in the region.
