Hurricane Campground is one of the best kept secrets in southwest Virginia. Located along a rushing mountain stream under the shade of hemlock and rhododendron, this campground offers a peaceful setting for those looking to relax as well as visitors looking for outdoor adventure. From the campsite, hikers can access many trails including the Appalachian Trail. This well-known trail extends more than 2,189 miles throughout the Appalachian Mountains across 14 states. It is a protected greenway and owns the title as the first National Scenic Trail.


Visitors frequently explore the Hurricane Knob Trail. The loop trail, at 1.1 miles, parallels Hurricane Creek for about half a mile, crosses two wooden bridges and ascends to the picturesque Hurricane Knob. The creeks are stocked with trout for a relaxing day of fishing.


Hurricane has drinking water, flush toilets, hot showers and a playing field. Large RVs are not recommended. Each site comes with a lantern pole, picnic table and campfire ring.

Great stay!

Stayed for 3 nights after visiting laurels caverns from up north - absolutely no reception so be sure to have everything squared away before entering the park!

Extremely clean sites with designated tent areas. Showers are also warm one on each side of the campground. Just be sure to leave a 2 dollar payment at the station by the entrance.

Despite the 3 days of constant rain, we made the best of it and enjoyed the hell out of our stay!

Fun, small and clean.

We absolutely had an amazing time even with the rain. Very quiet and peaceful. Nice creek for kids to play in as well as a open field great for catching the night sky.

Small, quiet little gem

Located in the George Washington & Jefferson National Forests this campground was a nice find.

Not crowded at all, maybe 5 other campers. Extremely quiet & relaxing stay.

With 26 sites no one was stacked on top of each other.

We grabbed site 19 I believe.  Had a great parking area for the bikes and a small walk to the site.

Nice open fields, which were well maintained.  Close enough to the brook.  Sadly, water level was very low so no fishing. 

Fire ring, picnic table, pole to hold a lantern, and even land to pitch a tent.

All grounds were well maintained, spigot area and toilets were clean and well stocked.
