Parkway Accommodations & Camping

Three sites along the Parkway provide opportunities for overnight accomodations from spring through the fall foliage season. Many visitors also enjoy the various camping sites along the Parkway and a chance to sleep under the stars.

Explore our Interactive Map to find a variety of lodging convenient to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Many travelers may find that venturing beyond the Parkway into the local towns and communities in the region is an enjoyable part of the Parkway experience.

The Peaks of Otter Lodge is located 20 miles north of Roanoke, Virginia, at Milepost 86.  This is the only year-round lodging on the Parkway and offers dining, trails, fishing and seasonal interpretive programs at the park amphitheater.

Rocky Knob Cabins is currently closed, pending facility repairs. Located at Milepost 174 near Meadows of Dan, Virginia, these are small, rustic cabins built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the early days of Parkway construction.

Pisgah Inn is open from early spring through the fall foliage season. Located south of Asheville, North Carolina, at Milepost 408.6, Pisgah Inn is the highest elevation lodging on the Blue Ridge Parkway at more than 5,000 feet.
