This was a great midweek site. The reservation board is straightforward, the history of the campground is interesting, and the trail access is excellent. Has everything you need with a tent pad, parking spot, fire ring, picnic table, and vault toilets on site. Decent cell service in the hiker parking area and on the road.
The weekend folks ceased to use the reservation board system and were very noisy.
Stayed first weekend of Spring, some of the campsites are on a creek or river. Only $1o due to Covid, loads to do including a rather enormous grass clearing for picnic, bridge and cabin, fishing and hiking complete with billboards describing the hike. It was beautiful and the stars at night were breathtaking. We met one of the volunteer park rangers who suggested we drive about 15 min into town to Woodstock to a viewpoint and right below is a local store where they make THE BEST homemade sandwiches and desserts.
Bring your Camper, RV, Utility Trailer, Van, Pick-up or Tent. Downy Meadow RV Campground is mostly flat and grassy, with electric, water, and dump station. Clean shower and bathroom. Suggest bringing your own food, as no restaurant is on site. To make a reservation call Eric or Danielle Showalter @ 540-820-3605 or 540-830-2670, $15 per person per night-CASH
This was a great campground. We booked a “walk up” but our parking spot was just down 3 or 4 stairs so it was very easy to go back and forth. We had a large tent pad, fire pit, and picnic table, and there was a water pump right by our parking spot. There were several vault toilets nearby and we never had to wait in line. The sites were well spaced out and while we could hear our neighbors talking, everyone was respectful of the quiet hours.
We chose this location for the stargazing, but the fog was so dense we could barely see in front of our faces in at night and into the early morning! I would not recommend driving to the site at these times because we could not see either side of the road through the fog. However, during the day it was a beautiful drive up the mountain with several scenic overlooks.
There were very few maps of the trails posted so take pictures online before you go. The trails were well marked and interconnected, so you can make your loop as long or short as you’d like. There were many rivers and waterfalls along the way and several dispersed campsites with fire pits around the trails. The hikes were not particularly difficult, but each one had very unique terrain (rocks/mud, steep meadow, flat forest, etc.) and very unique foliage.
First off, this place is really outdated. The spots are too small, so I would suggest staying on gravel. The camps and condos are so undated. I wouldn’t stay in them. The camp/rv spots rent monthly for $800 for water, sewer, and electricity (doesn’t include extras like wifi), which is way to much. The water has problems and runs orange and ruined some of my clothes. They will not reimburse you for anything being ruined. Don’t get me started about how much the condos/camps are a night. Too much for an outdated condo/camp!!
The staff is friendly. Bathrooms are okay, but outdated.
The event they have once a year is too loud and too wild! Which is sad for a family camp ground. They should be more morally grounded for family. That event is not kid friendly at all. I didn’t care for the other events.
They have two washer and dryers on site, but you can only use one at a time and it cost, so it’s better just to go to the laundry mat.
The pool is not just for Skyline use. They let the public come use it as well. Which really sucks for renters paying $800 a month, the public shouldn’t be aloud to join in on the pool. It should be private.
I would not recommend this place or return any time soon.
Last minute weekend trip to Shenandoah, didn’t have a reservation but they were able to put us in a beautiful spot at the back of the campground. The picnic table and fire pit at each campsite was fantastic, and Pam was great and very helpful. The outhouses could use some maintenance but there are flush toilets and running water at the front of the camp ground. The creek flowing along the campsite was gorgeous and it was great listening to the running water at night. Would definitely return!
Very clean & lots of amenities. They are adding 80 more campsites for covid campers. Pool is closed rn (March 2021). Playground, basketball court, fire sites, small store, babbling creek, catch & release pond, trails. A little scary driving into- winding roads & tight turns. They have a easily accessible (for huge RVs) gas station right off the highway before turning in!
Took off a star bc this wasn't a "stay a while" campground. Most people came one night. We have a 38" camper and the site they gave us had such a steep grade it took us a LONG time to get level. We went and asked if we could have a new site as we checked in when they allowed & it was EMPTY. we paid for 5 days in advance and they "couldn't give us a new site". It seemed silly to me bc there were plenty of back in sites that we could have fit in…. and all rhe people who paid for 1 night could have been switched over? Although that customer service experience wasn't delightful, the staff was still helpful & friendly.
