Incredible hiking but not so great camping...

Perfectly located to bag 5000 footers (including Mt. Rogers) and for hiking in the high country!  The campground hosts were awesome and the services were great.

We had two issues you should be aware of... 

Issue 1: the wells were pretty dry so we had no water hook up, no hot showers, and were limited to the water we could haul from a designated location.  This is not the fault of the campground staff, or the State of Virginia... but does mean that RV campers should fill up their tanks at home, just like you were dry camping.

Issue 2: many of the sites are right on the road, with the front of the camper and the firepit looking out at the road.  This is great if you want to be social, but not very private.  If you are reserving a site, look at the map carefully to pick the type of site you desire.

Otherwise, a great place to recreate!

  • Easy hike to an outstanding sunrise!
  • Awesome examples of nature at work
  • Not a wild pony...
  • wild ponies!
  • Not Silver...
  • Wilburn Ridge is one of five 5000 footers you can hike to...
  • The AT runs right through and provides excellent hiking!
