This event has concluded, see you at the next rally!

In 1970 several members of the WBCCI Virginia Unit purchased a 75 acre farm in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains of southwestern Virginia for an Airstream exclusive camping destination.  Through a private stock offering, and their own labor, they obtained the resources to construct a 46 site full hookup campground along a ridge line on the property.  The vision of the original forty-six founding stockholders, as well as the good stewardship of stockholders who followed, have allowed Virginia Highland Haven to continue as a premier camping destination for the Airstream community for nearly half a century. Be sure to check out the video history of the park on Highland Haven’s web page!


Getting here:

Some GPS systems can give unreliable directions leading you to very RV-unfriendly roads, so we are including driving directions from the major highways serving the area below. See the Location & Directions on the Highland Haven website

Caution:  U.S. 221 between Roanoke and Adney Gap and the portion of State Route 8 south of the Blue Ridge Parkway are not recommended for inexperienced RV drivers. Both have many sharp curves and steep grades (about 10%).

After the rally, come join the Niagara Falls Adventure!!
