This is a fantastic NPS campground, and a remarkable escape just 2 hours outside of the Washington, D.C. metro area. Usually quiet, mostly wooded with large, roomy sites. Many super fantastic walk-in tent sites as well, which we've used many times over the years. Now that we're in a trailer, I do wish they had a few full hookup or at least electricity sites available. But the tradeoff is worth it. Many great day hikes within a short drive, ranger activities, etc. Big Meadows is larger, more popular and usually more crowded than the slightly-more-remote Loft Mountain, but both are great. If staying for a longer period in the park, recommend splitting time between here and Loft Mountain.

This is a fantastic NPS campground, and a remarkable escape just 2 hours outside of the Washington, D.C. metro area. I agree with the other reviewers: quiet, remote, natural feel no matter what time of year. We've camped here many times over the years, usually in tents. Now that we're in a trailer, I do wish they had a few full hookup or at least electricity sites available. But the tradeoff is worth it. Many great day hikes within a short drive. If staying for a longer period in the park, recommend splitting time between here and Big Meadows, which is also fantastic and offers even more close-by day hike opportunities.

This is a very nice campground set in the middle of the busy Northern Virginia area. Great access to Washington, D.C., etc. Entire campground is tree-covered and well kept. I agree with some reviewers that hte way the sewer, water and electric hookups were installed doesn't make logical sense in some of the sites, so you may need to be prepared to have a longer drain hose or extension cord than normal. The noise from the shooting range is not a plus, and was pretty constant through the weekend we were there. On the other hand, the "Atlantis" water park nearby has just reopened after a complete remodeling and upgrading, and is fantastic for all ages 1 to 15. Significantly discounted tickets are available from the camp store for campers. The campground is somewhat overpriced IMHO, especially with several kids like we have as they charge extra. But overall a nice escape in a great location.
