NPS Campground directly on the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is a great location. A almost 5000 feet it gets you above the summer heat, and the lots are mostly secluded. Loop A is the least level, Loop B improves, and Loops C/D (tent camping only) are pretty flat. If you want hot showers, be aware that Loop A has a toilet, but no showers. This is a great rustic campground in a mature wooded environment. No hookups (2 dump + 2 water stations). Very impressed with how well the staff keeps the place up. The Pisgah Inn / Restaurant is directly across the street (5-10 minute walk) so if you feel like not cooking there is a great breakfast/lunch/dinner option nearby - with beer/wine license. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Most the sites in B Loop (which has a shower), were level and didn't require blocking. Even though it is on a hill, the gravel pads were level for parking. Night temps are cool so A/C not required. Most sites shady and well spaced. Some sites are reservable on line. Campground host was friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical old NP campground in a beautiful setting. Park is on a slope, so most sites are not level. However there are a few long pull throughs even for larger rigs, but maneuvering might not be for everyone. No AT&T, no Verizon reception, no satellite view (except site 32). We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice, quiet National Park Campground with no hookups, but water and a dump station are available. Cool temperatures even in August. A good place to sit back and read a good book. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Golden age card accepted here, half of the $16 normal rate. 5000 ft elevation so its nice and cool. Located at Blue Ridge Parkway mile post 408.6. Dump station and fresh water available. Put money in a envelope; never saw a park ranger. Easy in and out spaces. Enjoyed my stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Very good National Park campground We camped here in a Motorhome.
This cg wasn't really crowded at all. Its location is beautiful. Very wooded or shady - making some of the sites almost private. All sites have a picnic table and a grill. The roads and camping areas were all paved. Plenty of room to drive even the biggest of rigs. It got very dark here when the sun went down...quiet too. A cloud (or heavy fog) moved in during the night and made a toilet visit nearly impossible. Some of the footpaths are not well marked and at night are nearly impossible to follow without a flashlight. Warning! A sign as you entered reminded you about bears in the area. Water was available...if you didn't mind walking to get it. I never saw any staff member - entering or exiting. If you like primitive...you'll like it here. It is a beautiful area. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
