Beyond our expectations

We camped here with a group of nine of us (4 tents) and we had plenty of extra room. There was a fire ring with a adjustable grill rack and 6 picnic tables. We had five cars parked right in front of our site and that was super nice. 

There were two vault toilets right across where we parked our cars. The bathrooms were super clean with stainless steel toilet seats. We were very happy with the cleanliness of the bathroom. There were also an area for trash disposal. It was nice not having to drive our trash out!

We stayed at campsite 3 which is right next to campsite 2. We could hear the conversation from campsite 2 and see them. Campsite two and one had a water pump. Campsite 1 was right next to the bathrooms and the public picnic area. I would not recommend booking campsite 1. Campsite 1 was also smaller than 2 and 3. On Saturday the public picnic area next to the group camp ground was over flowing. People kept coming into our campsites to use our picnic benches and set up picnic blankets around our campsite. This was very annoying. 

We enjoyed making the short trip to the Loft Mountain Camp Store which had souvenirs, food, wood, milk shakes, ice cream, coffee, camping equipment, showers, flushing toilets , and laundry. 

We also enjoyed making the short trip to the Loft Mountain Wayside to eat in the restaurant there. 

At night the you could see stars. We took a walk to the overlook in the middle of the night to stargaze. 

We loved our time here.

Lots of space

Large campsites with lots of space. Close to the southern end of the national park. Good base camp to hit the nearby trails.

Wide open, clean, and close to SNP

This place was an awesome stay. Came here with the family one weekend in the fall and it was awesome. The sites were pretty big and had fire rings and picnic tables. There were also food lockers. The place is a group camping area, so we had like 15 people, but I think we coulda brought more. 

This campground was really awesome because it’s so close to the skyline drive and Shenandoah. We went on some awesome hikes while we were here. Check out rose river trail and bearfence mountain. Also went down to Charlottesville and visited beaver creek lake which was an cool little trip. 

Really this was just a great place to come with a bunch of your friends and family and just relax. October is definitely the best time to visit the park.
