Small Country Campground invites you to explore Louisa, Virginia and its surrounding areas!



Thomas Jefferson's Monticello - Thomas Jefferson's Monticello is the autobiographical masterpiece of Thomas Jefferson, designed and redesigned and built and rebuilt for more than forty years. Your tour of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello includes the house, gardens and grounds, and the plantation. The gardens at Monticello were a botanic showpiece, a source of food, and an experimental laboratory of ornamental and useful plants from around the world. The Monticello plantation of 5,000 acres was a center of agriculture and industry, and was home not only to the Jefferson family, but to workers, black and white, enslaved and free. A variety of tours are offered to fit your needs and to enhance your visit to one of America's most beautiful historic sites. Thomas Jefferson's Monticello is on VA Route 53 near the intersection of Interstate 64 and VA. Route 20, a short drive from Small Country Campground. local1

James Madison's Montpelier - Take a relaxing drive through the countryside and experience James Madison's Montpelier, a beautiful and historic plantation home. Discover the world of James and Dolley Madison as you explore the grounds, stroll through a formal garden, walk the 200-acre old growth forest, and take in the stunning vistas of rolling hills and distant mountains. James Madison's Montpelier is a great place to learn about our fourth president and the Father of the Constitution. In the mansion, begin with a 15-minute video about the Madisons and view original furnishings. Outside in the gardens you can see the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, or watch archaeologists unearth history at the sire of Madison's grandfather's early home. Montpelier is a great way to add some history and culture to a family or group outing. James Madison's Montpelier is just a few miles from Monticello and Small Country Campground in Montpelier Station, Virginia. local2

Today, visitors can enjoy a southern meal in the tavern's dining room, including period dishes such as Colonial Fried Chicken, Hickory Smoked Pork, black-eyed peas, biscuits, and cornbread, just to name a few. Michie Tavern also offers a tour of the original tavern, where costumed interpreters await you. You may be asked to dance the Virginia Heel, or write with a quill pen. Be sure to stop by the new Clothier Shop, general store, and the Meadow Run Grist Mill. local3
