Events & Farm Visits
The goal of Clinch River Farms is to generate income to support local summer camps, programs, and community outreach events. We offer venues for weddings, parties, reunions, picnics, and more.
After booking a visit, we will contact you directly to discuss activities available at the time of your visit. From tubing, kayaking, and rock climbing, to the foam pit, slip-n-slide, or even fishing, we have activities for all ages and ability levels.
We are kid friendly and know you will have a wonderful time enjoying all the amenities available.
Summer on the farm is a magical time! We partner with Mountain Kids and the Attitude Arts Academy to offer eight camp opportunities for children near and far.

This large, semi-covered deck, is easily accessible and overlooks the Clinch River. The overlook is a wonderful location for book club meetings or small groups. Tables and chairs are available for an additional cost, and will seat up to 36 people.
The River Park Camp Area
Our largest rental space is our River Park. This includes use of the firepit, kitchen shelter, classroom shelter, outdoor stage, playground shelter, swinging bridge, and river access. We recommend this location for church picnics, reunions, and large events.
There are multiple firepit areas located across the farm. The River Park Firepit is by far the most popular.
Located in the River Park, the Kitchen Shelter includes a large grill, table, and serving area. This shelter was designed with covered dish dinners in mind. There is limited electricity available.
This two story shelter holds tables and chairs on both levels. An excellent location for field trips, classes, and small group events.
An outdoor performance is beautiful in the spring, summer, and fall! Equipped with a removeable and professional snaplock dance floor, this location has housed many a dance recital, music performance, and even a few weddings!
This shelter is a child's dream! A place to eat, direct access to the river play area, playground equipment, and picnic tables. This is a wonderful location for birthday parties or events with children.
For fishermen, swimmers, and water enthusiasts, this is the prime location on the farm. A small playground for the kids, picnic tables for family meals, firepit, tree swing, swimming hole, and access to Julie Island.
In memory of Karen Hudson, the original owner of Clinch River Farms, this chapel is a special place to commune with God. We have hosted church services, funerals, memorial services, and choirs with great success in this location. The chapel faces the river, and provides endless peace and joy.
Camp Area & Fire Pit
Scout Troops love to visit this area! A rocket stove, campfire, private tent camping, small playground, river access, and a trail to the Clubhouse Playground. It is an excellent location for individuals or small groups wishing to campout or commune with nature.
There are multiple hiking trails across Clinch River Farms. From easy trails for young kids to a 5K across the swinging bridge and straight up Peace Mountain, there are trails for everyone and every level.
Zipline & Rock Climbing
We are proud to be home to the only zipline and rock-climbing wall in Tazewell County! For an additional fee, and subject to availability, your family or group may climb up the man made 20 foot rock wall, or the natural 50 foot stone wall; zipline across the river; or, a combination of climb and zip!
With multiple entry locations along the riverfront, we welcome groups to river tube during bookings. The camp favorite is to tube from one end of the farm to the other, ending in the Swimming Hole at the Wilderness Campground.
