Beautiful views & large spots

Beautiful views. Adjacent to a working farm where cows, sheep, llamas, chickens and roosters can graze next to the campsites.

The grounds were beautifully manicured and incredibly clean.

It also had the largest dog park area of any campground I’ve ever seen.

Very nice pool, friendly staff and…

Great primitive camp

15 nice flat sites

Free sites in a small loop not too crammed together. Easy dirt road access. Picnic tables and fire pits. 2 sets of pit toilets. Pretty disgusting at the moment. Think trainspotting. Mostly empty at the moment.

Awesome but COLD

We came the first weekend in April and it snowed. Being that you are at the top of the mountain, it gets COLD so be prepared. Otherwise, we had a wonderful time. Sites were great (bear boxes at each site), friendly rangers and wonderful views. I recommend getting a site in advance because the…

great access - not remote

The sites are somewhat exposed, but have easy access to facilities (stores, restaurants, supplies, etc.).  There is a lot to do in the immediate area

Primitive campground, great base for fishing or hunting

This campground is situated just off the road through beautiful Smoke Hole Canyon (a sharp turn if you're northbound). The entrance has video surveillance and there is a self-pay station at a tree on on your way in. Pay your $10 and drive in to set up. Sites are grassy, not clearly delineated, and…

Great campaite

This is a small campsite but we had a lot of fun. There is a trail right next to the sites and they have a nice little picnic area as well that you can throw a ball around in. There are only 8 sites I believe that are first come first serve. There is no firewood on-site but there was a place on the…

Primitive campground on the edge of the wilderness

This is a small rustic campground on the edge of the Dolly Sods wilderness. In spite of the gravel road to get here, you’ll find a lot of competition for sites during the peak season, particularly weekends. The roads close until snow and mud season have passed, so check road openings on the…

Bathhouse was nice and clean (August 2020)

The sites are nice but muddy; not very good drainage. The bathhouse was nice and clean. My friends and I chose this campground due to the lake- Randolph Jennings- and wanting to swim- the beach was closed due to COVID- the reason, they couldn't monitor people to social distance and wear a mask.…

Fantastic time

Stayed in the upper loop. Amazing stars, good space at the sites and enough growth between sites that you aren’t on top of each other.

The river and floating are fabulous. Views are gorgeous. No cell service so you can totally disconnect.

4 stars really because there is not ice available at…

Outstanding State Park!

With large, private sites this campground is perfect for camping!  We never heard from the neighbors and I don't believe our constant activity created a problem for them either.  The sites were made of crushed rock, very flat, and the RV sites included water, electricity, a picnic table, poles for…

  • Plenty of wildlife including deer, rabbits, snakes, and a multitude of lizards.  Not too buggy at all!
  • The Shenandoah River from a great view point in the park.
  • There are a couple of awesome fields that are very busy in the early morning and at dusk.

Lousy site but saved by first-come-first serve flexibility

Huge number of sites situated in an open area with some trees. Our reserved site, E172, was on a sloping, crumbling  asphalt pad and we couldn't get our 17' travel trailer level. We almost left but heard by word of mouth that C loop is first come first served so we ended up in C130 on a relatively…

Beautiful Shenandoah

Beautiful Shenandoah National Park.

We were tent camping with two young kids on site 93. Sites are hit and miss depending on what you’re looking for. Some are larger than others. 93 was fine except no trees to hang hammocks (which the kids were looking forward to) and the space for the tent was…
