Horseshoe Farm Hunting Preserve

2136 Horseshoe Trail Alton Va 24529

Horseshoe Farm Hunting Preserve has been developed for prime hunting across 270 acres of Private Land and hundreds of acres of untouched hardwood forests and river bottoms along the adjoining Army Corps of Engineers property in the headwaters of Buggs Island Lake/Kerr Reservoir.

The combination of agricultural fields, old growth forest, young growth forest, and swamp land and input from a Wildlife Biologist and a Timber Manager creates a perfect habitat for many types of animals, including Deer, Turkey, Quail, Ducks, Geese, Bear and any number of small game. Additionally, a 2-acre pond full of various large fish provides additional activities.

We are also a certified wild quail habitat and we offer guided quail hunts with trained bird dogs for an additional price.

For processing, there is running water and a deer hanging rack located behind the barn.

Your overnight rental includes the use of the Cabin, a converted barn with space to unwind by the large fire place. The cabin is furnished with tables, chairs, two bathrooms, an outdoor shower, hot water, stove, large griddle, and a full-size refrigerator.  Upstairs are 7 enclosed rooms each with 2 bunks and mattresses.  Cabin can sleep up to 14 people (see pictures).  

*Blankets and pillows are not provided 

The property has a great trail network allowing for easy riding access throughout and we work to keep them safe and clear for riders.  We have three Jeeps and 4 ATVs.  

We do require all drivers to provide a valid drivers license as well as participate in our safety meeting before enjoying the property.  We prohibit individuals from bringing their own off road vehicles to use on the property.   

Do you grow up playing with Tonka trucks and dream that oneday you could play on one oneday?  Well, our team of trained operators will instruct you throughout your experience to ensure your dreams come true!

Equipment to include: Bobcat, Bulldozer, Full size Excavator and Mini Excavator. You will navigate digging holes, stacking tires, moving logs, and more! 

Individuals looking to learn or perfect their marksman skills, we offer two different Atlas skeet shooting systems:

 1) the skeet is going away from the shooter 

2) the skeet is coming towards the shooter

Both Atlas systems are set up to be still or on a wobble system. 


We have hosted outdoor retreats for many different Men's Ministries, Youth Groups and Scout Troops.  Either Lodging in the Cabin or Tent Camping, day trips or full weekend events, we are passionate about outreach.
