Spend the night under the stars in one of America’s most beautiful natural settings by camping while traveling through the Blue Ridge Parkway. Campgrounds on the Parkway are open seasonally, while many privately-owned campgrounds just off the Parkway are open year-round. To find a campground, check the list below, use our interactive map, or view the brochure to locate a campground in a specific area. To determine availability for privately-owned campgrounds, you’ll need to contact the campground directly via telephone or website.
What to Know About Parkway Campgrounds
All Parkway Campgrounds offer restrooms, drinking water, picnic tables and grills. Showers are only available at Mt. Pisgah Campground and Price Park Campground. To make a reservation or find details about which public campgrounds are open and have availability, visit www.recreation.gov.
Camping on Parkway lands outside of designated campgrounds or without a permit at backcountry sites is prohibited.
Motorhomes, RVs and Travel Trailers
The Parkway’s eight campgrounds were built years ago and do not offer RV hookups. Most Parkway campgrounds have at least some sites that will accommodate sizeable recreational vehicles. There are many private campgrounds in communities available just off the Access Points of the Parkway with full RV hookups and amenities.
