Quiet and laid back. The bathrooms were very clean and also air conditioned, which was a nice treat for a few minutes to step out of the humid June heat. They were flush toilets. There was potable water right by the bathrooms. There were no showers but if you drove right outside the campground in the park there was coin operated showers and laundry room. There was also a camp store and post office. There were trails that ran through the campground and ones right outside in the park. During the day you could schedule tours to the caves which was a great view.
These sites are very close together, not a lot of privacy but I guess That is to be expected in the most visited national park in the country. The scenery was beautiful with the mountains and wildlife. But make sure to lock your food up in your car or bear proof boxes because there are plenty of bears around. The bathrooms were not very clean. Some of them had heavy urine smells to them and floors always had toilet paper all over them. Not sure when anyone cleaned them… there was potable water near the bathrooms and utility sinks. There were no showers in the campground. If you wanted to shower you would have to drive to one of the nearby towns that offered showers at one of the rv campgrounds. The campground had a ranger station and it had a bike rental store as well as a camp store that also sold cafe food and soft serve ice cream. Which was really nice on the hot humid days in June. There were plenty of nearby trails to explore and of course Cades Cove loop which offered nice wildlife and history about the Cove.
If you like seclusion this campground is for you. The campground is primitive. There are 10 single sites that you have to walk into from the parking lot. Not a very long walk but just enough to feel secluded from traffic and other people. It has no showers, vault toilets and no running water. There is potable water at the visitor center and also flush toilets. The trails are very nice and well kept. Depending on when you go you may be the only ones on the trail. The wildlife is very neat it makes you feel like you are in a mini rainforest. There are snakes, skinks, lots of birds, insects and fox squirrels.
This campground is very clean. The bathrooms were clean and the campground had coin operated showers which was a plus. The firepit has grates to cook your food on which was good. It also had a camp store which sold basic camping supplies and food and of course Shenandoah National Park merchandise. It was also nice because it sold wine and beer, which we liked because we went there for our wedding anniversary and wanted drinks for our anniversary dinner. They also had a cafe that sold lunches, dinners and ice cream. The views of the park were great and the trails were very close by, we enjoyed Stony Man and Dark Hallows Falls. The Park Rangers and employees were very friendly! The wildlife is great, we saw plenty of deer and pretty birds. We would definitely go back.
This campground is very nice. Clean and has lots of space in campsites. The facilities are also very clean. It has lots of bike trails and hiking trails to go on. Which we went on some hiking trails. Is very close to cape attractions and beach.
The campground is right on the beach and the campsites are succluded in the woods. The beach gets kind of crowded on hot days. The bathrooms and showers are pretty clean. They have a store on site for any of your camping needs, they also have a gift shop by the fishing pier. Your can fish right off of the fishing pier on the beach. The staff and Rangers are very friendly and helpful. Especially since there was a jeep that came off someone's hitch and ran right into our car. The park rangers were there right away before we could even call them. They helped sort everything out! The campground also has a nature center with activities for kids and exhibits of reptiles. There are also lots of walking and hiking trails to do, which we did some while we were there. Overall nice experience.
We went here on our honeymoon and had the best time! The tent sites are mostly succluded with woods around you. The campground is right down the shore from Virginia beach. And you have beach access right in the campground so you don't have to worry about fighting the crowds at the beach, because it's mostly people swimming there from the campground. The facilities are very clean. The park rangers close the bathrooms and showers once a day to clean them! Cleanest camp ground I've been to so far. The staff and Rangers are very friendly. They also have a general store on site incase you need ice or any other necessities. Across the street is a learning center and a bunch of hiking trails. We hiked some and the trails were great. Some of the trails leaded you over marsh and through woods great activity while you are camping there! I love this place and can't wait to go back!
