No WiFi and no hot spot. Chickens were allowed to free range thru out campsites, so watch where you step, even at your own door. Paid $55 a night, felt like I was overcharged. - billl2099

This park was so peaceful. The people who worked here were helpful. Chickens and a rooster visit your site. - Chicabunny

Pricey for what you get. $50 for a gravel back-in that isn't nearly level. It took 3, 2x6s under the front wheels to get the front end up enough to keep things from rolling off counters. When making reservations for 7 nights they required the total cost of the stay as a deposit. 3 mile road to the campground is a narrow two lane road with lots of tight turns making it less than big rig friendly. TV is analog so unless you have an old TV or converter (or a dish) the picture is grainy. Internet is spotty to non-existent and the staff position on the matter is basically "it either works or it doesn't" There is Poison Ivy growing near our site. Love the Shenandoah area but my experience at this campground has spoiled what was to be a very special vacation. - Hollidayt

Not many level sites. The pool is the big attraction. It is fed by a spring right under the pool. Nice owners. Not very good cell service as it is in a very low spot, so no data cards work. - KED1950

Owners very pleasant and busy with "community pool" and snack bar which they run in addition to campground and its pool. Campground is old, basic, and may not be too well maintained. We had been there only about a half hour, turned on a/c and blew a fuse in our RV. It had not been a problem elsewhere. With no one there to fix it, and a need to be able to run a/c, we left. The owner did refund half of our fee. We likely would not stay there again. - Faun

PRO: This park is close to entrance of Shenandoah Nat'l Pk. CONS: This park needs some cleanup and update immediately. It appears that the owners are more concerned about the operation of the commercial swimming pool on the property than the RV park. Trees need trimming to allow clearance for RVs. Sites need cleaning and general maintenance. Several long timers who have messy sites. Entrance asphalt has pot holes. Water supply contains grit. - backes01

Restrooms in the rec hall were very nice. The ones further
up the hill in another building were pretty nasty.
Good location for visiting the area and the caverns.
Endless Caverns are great, not all touristy like
several of the others in the area. Quiet and peaceful with
very nice site locations. Not much on tv with the over-the-air
reception, but we did not mind, as enjoyed a nice fire and
spent time outside. Wifi was terrrible for our visit, but
cell service was very good.
This was our second visit, and we enjoyed it, very nice campground.
Now, if the could only start paving the roads, we'd have a 10 ! - macandphyl

We stopped for an overnight stay at Endless Caverns on our way north. The campground is located a few miles off Interstate 81, so there is no traffic noise. Located on the mountain slope, the campsites are arranged on terraces with large rock retaining walls. Roads and sites are gravel. An escort is provided to the site. The sites are very long, level and reasonably wide, so there is plenty of space for slideouts and awnings. Sites are FHU, no cable, WiFi OK, only OTA TV was ABC. Fresh mountain air was very pleasant. There is a nice swimming pool for kids, horseshoe pits, and a volleyball court. Tours of the caverns are offered during the day. There were reports that a bear was raiding the dumpsters in the evening, but we did not see or hear him. Price reflects PA discount. This is a convenient campground for overnight stops, or for longer stays when touring the area. We would visit this campground again. - tnyankee

Campground is built into the side of a mountain so all of the sites are terraced. Sites are fairly level but expect to be walking uphill or downhill everywhere you go. We did experience some low voltage over the weekend when the park was completely full and the temps rose to near 90. There is a nice pool and rec hall in the park. Over the Memorial Day weekend there was a band that played at the rec hall on Saturday night. Park WiFi was not useable over the weekend when park was full. During the other days it was slow (OK for email or quick searches on internet) but dependable. All of the road in the park are sloped and some of the turns are quite sharp. We did not visit the cavern while we were there since it rained several times and there was water along the route in the cave. - Co-Mike

Thirty paved sites, tables, fire pits/grills. Golden Age Passport give 1/2 off price. No Reservations. First come sites, but other than holidays, you should be able to get a site if you arrive between Sunday PM and Thursday AM. Dumpster, and one water spigot available near site 4. Restrooms have hot water, but no showers. Location: N38° 26.3796'; W78° 28.7078' Great visit. Spent 13 days. - Tom SKP

We stayed at the Lewis Mtn campground for only one night. This location has both cabins and a small campground. If your looking for rustic this is the place. No hook-ups or dump station, just peace and quiet. The sites are all rather small, catering to tents and the smallest of trailers. Most sites are fairly close together, with not much understory between them. Our site was in the middle of the loop, but we did have some privacy due to the fact we had no neighbors. Camp host was very friendy and a wealth of information. Wildlife galore in all areas surrounding the campground. Saw two bear, so keep you foodstuff stowed away. Big Meadows complex is only 5 miles away so food and fuel are close by. Overall a great little campground. Almost forgot to mention, you cannot reserve a site here, FCFS (First Come, First Served). - florida08

Lewis Mtn. is the smallest of the campgrounds on Skyline Drive, and caters to tent campers and hikers. Very friendly hosts who kept each site tidy. We spent one night here, then moved into one of their heated cabins later in the week when the weather turned nasty. It's a good choice if Big Meadow is unavailable. - Flying Mantis

Typical National Park campground, lots of nature and space around the sites, but no hookups and few sites are long enough for big rigs. Roads are narrow, making it difficult to back in with a long trailer. No cell coverage in the campground. - Loki

This park is pristine with unbelievable views. The wife and I had been here many years ago before kids, so we decided to go back this time with them. The evening nature programs are excellent and the rangers are very polite, educational, and helpful. There is no electricity, and we provisioned a supplemental solar panel on our rig which worked just fine. We left on our 4th day as planned and still had 65% charge left on our single group 24 battery. I wish more people had a clue, it smells and sounds like an LA freeway during mid-day as everyone fires up their gas guzzling generators. Fortunately, we spent our days hiking and exploring the bountiful plenty that Shenandoah has to offer. The wildlife was the highlight of the trip as deer and bear are easily seen. - hojo70

This is one of my favorite campgrounds. We spend a good deal of time on the AT in Shenandoah and this campground is such a nice respite. Here's what I like:
- It's lovely, on the side and top of a mountain and the sites are mostly in at least partial shade. It's also very quiet, and people are there to camp, not party.
- There's one of the best camp stores EVER on the way in. Blackberry milkshakes... Nuff said.
- The RVs are pretty well away from the rent campers. Good for everyone. The tenter aren't in the way of the RV folks, RVs don't have to worry as much about disturbing the tent people, generator noise, etc, and the tent campers don't have to be around all the big RVs. Win win.
- all the tent sites have a bear box, an even, flat tent pad area, grill and fire ring.
- there's secure trash areas within easy access, as well as bathhouse facilities an easy walk from every section
- the Rangers and staff here are helpful, professional and non obtrusive
It's so close to the trail, it's impossible to run out of breathtaking sights and fantastic hikes. It's truly a hiker and nature lovers paradise. You get people up here who are here to appreciate the natural beauty of the area, not a bunch of crazy locals looking for a party spot.
The last time we camped here we had some excitement. Keep in mind you are up on a mountain and the weather can change in a snap and get pretty crazy. Within seconds, we watched a cold dark fog roll in, then the temp dropped about 20 degrees and it proceeded to violently storm, resplendent with torrential downpours, loud thunder and frequent and impressive lightening. We huddled snug in our tent most of the night as it passed through. Pretty scary, but if you come up here remember that's what you might be signing up for.
Really beautiful campground. - Metaphormidable

A beautiful, relatively new, quiet & peaceful campground along the south fork of the Shenandoah River, surrounded by picturesque mountains. Helpful reservation process. Lots of forms to sign at check-in regarding our understanding of campground rules. Well equipped campstore at entrance. RV spots are in an open, grassy field with a gravel surface on each level site. Pull-thrus & back-ins available. Not any shade as planted trees are too young. Full hook-ups well placed & worked. No Wi-Fi, but strong Verizon & AT&T signals. No cable. Tent sites, mostly with shade, are along river. One bathouse, which was very clean until the end of the day when campers came in to wash off sand from the river. The grounds are meticulously groomed, with lots of walking & golf cart trails. Golf carts are available for rent at the campstore & helpful for getting around as the grounds are vast & it's quite a hike to some of the open spots on the river. We were a family group of assorted ages, 12 to 73, and there were activities appealing to all of us, including the 4 dogs. Walking, swimming, fishing, tubing, canoeing, kayaking, or just sitting still enjoying the scenery, amazing sunrises & sunsets. A definite repeat for our annual family camps. - Safe Trip

We loved this quiet, beautiful campground. It sits above the Shenendoah river with mountains surrounding it on 3 sides. This park is only 5 years old but they have done an excellent job of making large, level sites with full hook ups, beautifully mowed walking/ biking trails, a nice small playground and lovely primitive tent sites right on the river. They rent golf carts which can be used on the trails to the river as well. They have two small ponds for catch and release fishing and during the warm months you can swim, tube, canoe, or fish from the Shenandoah. Very friendly and helpful workers with a nicely stocked camp store. Peaceful and secluded, just outside of Luray, but only 5 minutes to Walmart. We stayed for a week and loved it. - Jeni

Arrived at park after exact GPS routing. Owner was very helpful and informative when acquiring reservations, which made the actual registration process upon arrival very easy. Easy access, graveled leveled sites, great utilities, quiet, low night lights, few trees, security gate and views. Will return when visiting Shenandoah NP Skyline Drive that is 20 minutes. - RJourney

One of the most well-kept campgrounds we have ever been to. Easy off/on Rt. 81. Pull through, back-in, tent sites & cabins. Grassy, gravel surface. Friendly & efficient reservation & check in. Escort to site. Full hook-up services well located & in excellent working order. Strong cable & wi-fi signals. Also strong Verizon signal. Immaculate bathhouse & strong shower. We didn't use the small pool, but it looked clean & inviting. Well stocked camp store & a snack bar. We had their breakfast sandwiches, made to order & they were delicious. It didn't bother us at all, but there is road noise from 81 which might bother those who are sound sensitive. Some comments mention non-level sites. We were in P-1 which was completely level & spacious. We stopped here to recover for 2 nights after dry camping in Shenandoah National Park. We didn't check out any of the many attractions the Shenandoah Valley has to offer, but due to our fine experience at this camp ground, we will definitely go back for a longer visit. - Safe Trip

Was guided to our spot by the host who was kind and helpful. The lay out of the utilities caused us to have to stretch our 20ft sewer hose to the limit. We were in site 12 which placed us very close to I-81. The noise from the road made sleeping very difficult. The park showed a movie for campers which ended at their quiet time of 10 but after 8 hours on the road, I did not want to hear it when it came time to sleep. - BaldGuy

Clean newer campground on the side of I-81, have stayed before because of the friendly service, clean restrooms, and Passport discount. The generally level sites are tiered down the hill towards the interstate. Cable TV connection is good because broadcast reception unavailable. Expensive overnight stay when the pool isn't open without a Passport discount which they no longer honor. - travelin' guy

Great place to stay. Quiet at night. The back-in space was easy to get into even for an inexperienced driver. Only level spot found during a two week trip! - BaldGuy
Oct 2015 - $18.00
Nice setting, has RV/tent/standard cabin/deluxe cabin/caboose sites. Owner was very friendly and would drive by numerous times to make sure that everything was OK. Overall, I liked this campground and will probably return again someday. - User3064

We spent several days in this park, which has great proximity to the Skyline Drive. Our pull-thru site was very large and pretty level. No WiFi here except at the office. Showers are odd pull-chain operations. Two sites across from us had 8 adults and 9 children. Very noisy. Lots of shade here which was good because the weather was warm. - MaineDon

Typical National Park campground, lots of nature, very quiet, spacious sites with fire rings and picnic tables. Most sites are not level, and very few are long enough for larger rigs. Campground roads are narrow, which makes backing in difficult, even if the site is long enough. No cell coverage. - Loki

Great campground. I always see black bears at Loft Mountain. The NPS staff can be hateful and rude at times. Camp store is awesome. Weekends are full of folks from Northern VA who evidently have no concept of controlling their children. - InTooDeep

Another wonderful campground in a beautiful national park! Much has been written already about this campground, so my comments will focus on our particular campsite, which was E118. This campsite was the only reservable big-rig capable site available when I made our reservations. We discovered why when we got there (I wish I had read more of the reviews, as the issues with this site are covered by at least one other reviewer). To cut to the chase, there isn't a level spot anywhere on this site. It's not just a little out of level, but a lot! I used every 2X10, every Lynx leveler, and every inch of travel of the hydraulic jacks we had to level up our 40ft motorhome, but I still could not get it level front to back. The bottom edge of our front bumper was at least 2.5 ft off the deck. The last step out of the motorhome was a doozy! I wish I could post a photo here because our motorhome looks like a 737 rotating for takeoff. I was able to get it level enough that it wasn't uncomfortable, and we were only going to be there two nights, so we stayed. Otherwise, I would have moved somewhere else, even if it meant leaving the campground altogether. In my opinion, E118 is not a suitable campsite for a tent or a large TT or MH, and Recreation.gov should not list this particular site as big-rig friendly . Perhaps a pop-up or a small TT would work better. Regardless, I still give the campground a very high rating because it is such a wonderful place overall. We will be back again, again, and again. - USMCRET
