Horseshoe Point makes a great family getaway, with the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains painting a scenic backdrop to any vacation or event. This is a relatively dog-friendly campground -- any potential guests should pack a leash around 6 feet along, as well as plenty of waste baggies for their stay.
Thanks to the complimentary boat ramp provided to campers, Horseshoe Point is a great place for boat enthusiasts to spend the night. Whether it's a sailboat or some sort of motorized craft, it's crucial that you check your registration before heading to Lake Philpott to enjoy the waves. If Fido decided to tag along for the trip, check to make sure that they're safe and secure on your vessel before heading out.
Hiking is perfect for both you and your canine at Horseshoe Point. The area contains several different interpretive nature trails that are great for exploring on foot with your dog. Several different species of wildlife make their homes in the surrounding woods, so it's essential to have your dog on a secure leash in case they decide that it's time to chase a squirrel. Cyclists tend to come and enjoy these trails as well, so keep an eye out to avoid any unwanted encounters. Remember, as these trails are open to the public, it's doubly crucial to pick up any "doggie debris" that your pooh leaves behind.
Overnight guests are treated to a few different scenic options at Horseshoe Point. If you and your companions (be they canine or otherwise) are the types to try and "ruff" it, there are 34 sites that offer no amenities, save for a picnic table and campfire ring. Glampers and guests with RVs are also in luck, as an additional 15 sites with standard electric and water connections run just a bit higher than the base rate at $25 per evening.
Make sure to research the surrounding areas before planning your trip, as there may be nearby areas for a game of fetch. Just be sure to find out what additional costs may be incurred, as anything listed here pertains to Horseshoe Point only.
