This is a nice and very large campground tucked away in the northern part of Shenandoah. The facilities and grounds were well kept and it’s a short car’s travel (but there’s also a trail!) to ice, wood, and other essentials at Elkwallow.
We had originally made a reservation online for a site in Loop B, but when we arrived, we were able to choose a different site number. The A loop has the most appealing sites with many being situated along the forest’s edge (include bear boxes, not all sites here do), providing a pleasant mix of shade and sun throughout the day.
Site A072 was perfect for our liking. It’s sheltered on one side by brush with only one neighbor on the other side, yet it’s angled in such a way to feel much more secluded than one expects to feel in a large, dense campground - the sites can/are very close to one another. As for activities, there’s an amphitheater and several hiking trails that start within or in close proximity to the campground. The Appalachian Trail is one of them. I’d definitely recommend this campground.
