Looking to get away? Come stay with us! Nestled in the small town of Goshen, Virginia, you’ll find us at the Historic Cold Sulphur Springs Campground. We offer RV and tent camping both on a daily and seasonal basis. Our camping season is from April 1st - December 31st.

Our campground has access to a beautiful, pristine pond and acres of woods making it a prime spot for fishing and hunting.

*For generations, our campground has been home to hunters, and we embrace the opportunity to honor that tradition. During hunting season (October-December), target practice and shooting will be held on Sundays from 3-6 PM at the dam. Please avoid the lake and lake area during shooting time.  The road is safe to use to access the campground. Practice is limited to monthly and seasonal campers.*

The Historic Cold Sulphur Springs Campground dates back to at least the mid-late 1800s, when it was a large, flourishing resort frequented by travelers from near and far. In its heyday, the resort bustled with more than 250 guests who often spent entire summers there playing croquet and enjoying orchestra concerts at the hotel dance hall. They would arrive at the Goshen train station and be brought to the resort by horse and buggy, greeted with ice cold lemonade. Those who visited Cold Sulphur Springs, doctors especially, attributed miraculous medicinal benefits to the water, recommending it as a cure for a variety of ailments and encouraging patients to visit. The Goshen Land and Improvement company even used these testimonials as a marketing tool to attract visitors, claiming “The Cold Sulphur Springs is pronounced by leading physicians and chemists as the finest water in the state. We have in our possession testimonies from leading physicians north and south to that effect.”

However, the 1900s brought the onset of World War I and the advent of the automobile, allowing Americans to travel freely to a variety of locations without the need to summer for months at one resort. These factors caused the hotel at Cold Sulphur Springs to lose patrons and eventually meet its demise through fire and other means of destruction. 

Today, the grounds provide a simpler kind of hospitality. Cold Sulphur Springs is a place for travelers from all walks of life to camp, fish, swim, boat, hike, and more. While little remains of the old hotel, the historic Spring House is still in tact at the campground, as are some remnants of original building foundations. 

We invite you to explore the wonder that is the Historic Cold Sulphur Springs Campground and see the beauty that lies within.

Under new management so some construction is going on. Folks there are very friendly and considerate. Gary and Timmy are the team and bent over backwards to accommodate. Great location for fishing, hunting and river floaters. There will be more weekend site available in the near future. I would return there in the future.

Nice campground, bath house clean, plenty of hot water.

We stayed at Cold Sulphur Springs for over 3 months this summer. We had consistent and adequate power and water at our campsite and a working dump station when we needed it. The area is quiet, beautiful and remote. The driveway into the campground was kept in good repair making access easy. There is a small town nearby and cities within 30 miles or so. There are hiking trails both in the campground and surrounding National Forest. The weather was cooler than other areas of Virginia. The people who live and work there were kind and very helpful.

I haven’t been there in 16 or so years since my family had sold the property that we used to have our family reunion but this past weekend a lot of things have changed and for the good. One of the best camping experiences I’ve had in many years. I will definitely be going again soon. Some people may complain about the prices compared to other camping locations but you get what you pay for. We were right at the lake location campsite number 4. My personal favorite spot
