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…

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 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…

Nice getaway location

Semi private & large tent sites. Medium size beach and dock to launch kayaks at. Fish weren’t biting for us this weekend!

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.

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…

Great campground!

What a nice park and campground.

Wood is $7 a bundle and they don’t want you collecting. Deer everywhere and the occasional bear.

The meadow is just beautiful. A real nice spot an hour after dark for stars.

Try the 150 yard “hike” to Blackrock (next to the lodge) for an unforgettable…

Great campground Great place

I love Big Meadows on the Sky Line Drive. Really beautiful. Fresh air. Hikes galore. Wonderful night programs. It’s just special being in a National Park. Sites vary but NO hook ups. Pay showers.

Great site - bring earplugs

This campsite is just a short walk from road access- perfect for hiking in. The site has a water pump available seasonally, a toilet, and trash bags provided. Easy access to the water and enough space for a large group. The only downside is how close it is to the train tracks so it can be pretty…

Just passing through

We stayed at Rock Run Campground to give ourselves a few stationary days to relax since we live in an RV and are always on the go. The grounds itself is very well maintained. The women’s bathroom was clean however the showers didn’t seem well attended as a feminine hygiene product remained in one…

Wow!

Hey y’all! Wow this was a perfect camping spot. Very few people around and they were all gone by Saturday afternoon. A few nearby trails but watch for bears! Saw one in the first hour of camping. Can stay up to 21 days at a time which I’ll be doing soon!

Crisp mountain air

Joined by fellow campers in the group campsite, this place had a beautiful sunrise accompanied by gorgeous golden beech trees. Plenty of room to spread out amongst the grounds. Pit toilet was decent and parking was enough for a busy fall weekend. Would definitely recommend

Popular Campground

This campground is in a beautiful part of Shenandoah National Park, and is centrally located in the park. There are a number of trails nearby, and many more just a short drive away. This campground is very popular, and is almost always full on the weekends. Reserve your spot in advance if possible,…
