This place is very nice if you dont want to be around many people.
Great location for hiking. The campground is almost on the summit of the mountain, making it cold and windy during the fall/winter months.
We did a drop in on this campground this month and I was amazed that they had availability in July. This campground has a lot of sites but they've spaced them so that they can be pretty private and quiet. If you get in early there a lot of really choice sites. But even the non choice sites are great. Quiet time starts at 10 and is enforced. We didn't hear a soul all night. It is really close to one of the entrances to Skyline drive and really inexpensive at $15 a night. Really close to the Appalachian trail among other hikes and it has a great little camp store. Only down side was a lot of the campsites didn't have grills to put over the fire. We loved this site and will be going back!
Has awesome pull offs along the Skyline drive, which is great for pictures! Saw a lot of wildlife there including bucks and bears.
This campground on Skyline Drive is first come first serve. We arrived on an early Friday afternoon in July and there were still a good amounts of sites left. Bring your bug spray! There are lots of hikes nearby. We drove to hike Dark Hollow falls and it is a good easy/moderate one. I hiked while pregnant and our two young sons made it up and back(while catching a ride on the way back up). I gave it 4 stars because the camp hosts were a bit nosy and intrusive and there was an incident with a family nearby that seemed to be a misunderstanding but the park rangers and everyone got involved and it was a big ordeal. It seemed like it was an isolated thing but it was uncomfortable to have to witness.
loved this campground, hiking around, easy to find, respectful staff, highly recommend
Lewis mountain has all the amenities of home within walking distance if you just can’t live without them; bathrooms,showers, kitchen sink, fire pit, small store and 2 personal vehicle parking spots steps away from the tent. They also offer cabins if tents aren’t your style. The staff are all volunteers and do daily walkabouts to ensure everything is going smoothly and to give updates on the weather and ranger programs. My husband and I brought along our 10 month old daughter and 2 German Shepherds. Needless to say we were sort of loud, especially during the quite hours, but the staff assured us that things happen and urged us to stay the full 3 nights. This campground is more secluded than the others just down skyline drive which makes it more deseriable in our books. Our tent was also nestled up against the AT so we came across numerous friendly backpackers!
Campground was very clean and had nice showers and a camp store on site. The AT is only 150 yards away from several of the sites. They offer everything from backcountry, RV, and primitive camp sites. Try staying on outer loop around site A60 and you'll be able to see the sunset right from your site (weather permitting) We really enjoyed this campground when we stayed in May 2018, unfortunately no sunset views for us since there was dense fog and rain.
Not as many sites that you would think but if you like solitude go here
