Skyline Drive, Virginia: Loft Mountain and Lewis Mountain

Recommended Posts

On our way back from Western New York, we camped a bit on the Skyline Drive. Geezer pass gives you free entry to this beautiful parkway. Great views from many of the pullouts.

We checked out Big Meadow, but decided not to stay,even though we got there early enough to snag a couple sites close together. Sites are close together, big, flat, lots of campers.

 

We continued south to Lewis Mountain. Still smaller sites, but more separation. Smaller campground. Lots of tenters and families. And gnats, but the gnats retired for the night after sundown. We had camped here 10 years ago, and enjoyed it just as much. No hookups, quiet after hours. Lots of trees.

 

The next day, we moved out early to get a site at Loft Mountain. Since we arrived around 11 am, even on a Saturday in leaf season, we had pur pick of some really nice sites. Lots of pull thrus. Much bigger campground, but much bigger sites, choice of sun or shade Good separation. Seems like most if the sites are a quarter acre or better.

 

Very nice, professional and helpful staff at both campgrounds.

Might have been.? And that's so cool.

 

Did you camp at Matthew's Arm? I don't think we ever camped there. Been in the rest of them.

No, we didn’t camp there. We need to go back, we’ve been so busy with Rocky Mountain states we haven’t been east in a couple of years. Mike

We just go home last night from a two week trip up on the Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway both in Virginia. Both of these parkways have nice campgrounds, which we have been using for many years.
