Westmoreland felt a little crowded at full capacity. Had to wait for restrooms and the beaches were well used. They did have great trails, a lot of scheduled events for all ages, a pool and boat rentals and competitive prices. Overall a round experience and enough to do to maintain an entire weekend.
Even in the middle of the season with all the spots full you never feel like you are on top of everyone. This trip ended up being rainy and extremely misty. The mist added a good bit of magic to our hikes and didn't seem to damper the mood on either the grounds or the trails. Wood is kept covered so we didn't have to fight moisture to get the fire going. It took us longer to get up the mountain because of visibility issues but the staff was supportive and even called to confirm. Another great experience at Big Meadows.
Four + Canine stayed on one of the primitive sites in April 2017. The site was spacious enough for two tents and two hammocks and spaced far enough from other sites to feel comfortable despite the crowd. All the sites I saw were comfortably close to bathroom facilities and the campground is close to a lot of key Shenandoah trails. Wood gathering is allowed and in case roughing it isn't a strong skill for part of your group, there is a cafe that sells warm food and stickers for your already pimped out water bottle. Definitely returning this summer, recommend online reservations.
