This was my second time going to Seawall campground, I had such a great experience last year I wanted to go back! I love the back-country feel of the hike-in campsites (loop D). For stargazers, the short walk across the street to the beach will give you some unbelievable views of the milky way when the night is at peak darkness.
A short drive to the main part of the park & far enough away so that it's not crowded during busy weekends. Just remember to bring a ton of bug repellent, or opt to go during the months where bugs are less mild.
Little River is one of my favorite campgrounds ever! A group of friends and I decided to get one last camping trip in before winter hit - and we came across Little River on this website. Most sites were taken (as they usually are) so plan your stay well in advance. I'd recommend sites 26 (where we stayed), 27, 40, 51, 77 and 81. There's also a few easy historical hiking trails within the campground if you don't feel like leaving for a whole day to hike! For those who stay up late to stargaze - getting down to the reservoir at night can be a little tricky - but its worth it to see the moon/stars reflect on the water.
This campsite was amazing. Each site had a fair amount of isolation and trees surrounding it, and the mosquitoes aren't too bad there either. 10 minutes away is the trail head for the Bucklin Trail (one of the most difficult trails for Mt. Killington).
Also, the campsite lies directly on the Appalachian trail, so for a shorter or less-intensive hike, walk about 2.5 miles to the Deer Leap Overlook for some incredible views of the mountain ranges nearby.
Pretty solid campsite, 20 minutes from an awesome hiking trail at Mt. Shaw. Drive-in site has firepit, picnic table, and ample tent space.
The general store has just about everything you will need, and there is a grocery store about a mile from the site.
This campsite is ideal for more social campers, but may not be as isolated or woodsie for those looking to be able to stay up late talking or be alone with the trees.
went here with a group of college friends for a camping trip, the campsite was able to accommodate 3 tents (6 campers) as well as all of our chairs, hammocks, grill equipment, etc. A short drive to some of the best hiking trails in the park & there are a couple of low-difficulty trails nearby. Walk down to the beach just outside seawall on a clear night for some of the best stargazing you'll ever see.
Nice and woodsy, fairly isolated, free firewood.
