Fun Hike, easy parking

This was a fine place to park overnight. The trailhead connects to the Appalachian Trail, so there were several other cars parked overnight as well. It is a gravel lot, pretty level. There is a little road noise until about 1030 PM. Pretty little creek runs by the gravel lot, and there are also…

Dead fish...

I didn't really enjoy this campsite, they have a pool, that was packed with kids and people, they also have a man-made lake, but we saw all sorts of dead fish in it. It was gross, some of the other campers said it was normal for the campground to have dead fish and dead snakes in the lake. Anyway,…

Not easy but well worth it

I camped here 3 times, the hike up is brutal but the top is absolutely worth it. This most recent time camping we discovered that apparently TECHNICALLY camping isn’t allowed anymore, but the fire pit and tent areas still seem in use and I really doubt someone would hike up there to tell you to…

Peaceful remote camping

Unexpectedly found this site after planning on doing some primitive camping off the road. There's 2 sites that I saw on the road with pits.

There's access to the App Trail on the road so you might see some hikers but it was real quiet otherwise. Pretty nice scenery (you're smack in the middle of…

Golf Cart Capital

If cruising in your golf cart is your favorite pastime, SAFC is the place for you! This call family friendly campground has many things for families.  During the week, the campground slows down a bit, but on the weekends, it is completely full.

There are a lot of kiddos riding bicycles, hover…

New and clean. No shade

Campground is very new and bath facilities are immaculate. No shade at sites (hot July day).

Restaurant (Brewpub) is only open fridays and saturdays which was disappointing. Tried to swim at the river but it was trashy.

Staff was great, and would probably come again in the fall or early…

WORTH THE HIKE!

dragons tooth is off a path that is part of the Appalachian Trail, there is a good amount of parking with a bathroom and garbage, once you begin the trail there are a few dispersed obvious camping spots, these are the only camping spots that are easy to walk to the rest of the hike is moderate, but…

Large, shaded sites- the pros end there

The shaded spots were a good size and pretty secluded. That’s all the good I can say. The map makes it look like you have water access from the campsite- you don’t. You have to drive to the public beach across the state park. The map of the park is very confusing and we drove by our site at least…

Near Wineries and Breweries

This was an unusual campground. It was divided into areas for RV with full hookup, RV or tent without electric. The view from almost every site was spectacular! There is a bath house but I never used it. Across the street was Blue Toad Hard Cider tasting room and next door is Devil's Backbone…

Beautiful campground and Day use area

Wow! What a beautiful area near the Blue Ridge Parkway. You might not leave the campground, but you should check out the Blue. Ridge Parkway. This campground has 3 loops; 1 with no electric hookups and 2 with electric. The non--electric loop is larger than the others with parking pads and then…

Close to fun

Nice campground, really close to historic Charlottesville.  Some fun breweries and restaurants are right around the corner. 

Our site was great- up a hill and surrounded by trees. Very quiet.

I'd be less happy if I ended up in one of the lower level sites. No trees, packed in, and near a…

Lake Sherando is a great place to set up camp!

We've been traveling around to different campsites since I was diagnosed with Small Cell Lung Cancer and reviewing them for you all to enjoy.

Would go back any time

We went here for our first camping trip after buying our first camper. My daughter said she started having fun as soon as the car door opened. The spots along the creek were so nice but they are not full hookup. The full hookups were in the middle but got really muddy when it rained because…
