Incorrect info

The previous 2 reviews are incorrect. This is not near the parkway. There is a boone fork on the parkway but it is not this one. This is a old national forest campground that has been shut down several years. You can still use it but not maintained and is a good walk from the gate to the old campground.

Camping Right off the Parkway

The campsite is in the beginning of a 5 mile loop through the wilderness that takes you to Hebron falls. My only complaint is that you are close enough to the parkway to see and hear cars go by, but this makes the campground extremely accessible for everyone. The terrain is also flat and easy to hike through, making it a good long trail for beginners or children.

Camping on the Blue Ridge Parkway

This campground offers so much to do on the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. There is a 5 mile long trail that goes through the campground called Boone Fork Trail. This trail leads to Hebron falls where you can explore giant boulders and have a picnic. There is also an area just 1.5 miles from the Boone Fork Trail parking lot where you can go swimming and sliding off rocks. There are also many picnic tables along the river with small charcoal grills. Price Lake is also located next to the campground and offers kayak and canoe rentals by the hour. There are many other hiking trails near by along the parkway. This campground is only 30 minutes away from Boone, NC which offers an abundance of great restaurants and shops. It can get pretty busy during the summer so you will want to check in as early as possible if you don't have a reservation.
