This was our first time camping. It's not a good time because of the heavy rain in the afternoon. Luckily rain stopped before dark, and we were able to set up the tent(by watching youtube). The campsite is pretty big for 8 ppl even though we only have 2 here. It also close to restroom and water. We really enjoyed... More

Nice campground..bring your own water, port-a-pots & lights. One restroom for each loop. No showers so plan on a spitz bath if you are tenting it. If you are in a camper make sure you have it all with you there are no electric or water hookups. There is also no generator zones so check that out before you go.... More

I had a great time at this campground, bathrooms clean, awesome trail with a beautiful waterfall view at the end, campground store within 2 miles, sites are spacious, but some of them need a little bit of mowing because if you camping on a tent the area is full of little bushes. Other than that it's a good place.

The campground was very green and clean. The restrooms were clean and have flush. The tents are bit close to each other and our neighbors talked aloud way into the night. But overall the campground was great. It is right on Skydrive, we did the drive till big meadows and I highly recommend it.

This campground provided exactly what we needed for an overnight stay outdoors. The fire pit, picnic table, and restroom facilities were a welcome convenience. Our group hiked the 5 mile trek to the waterfalls, and although it looked more like a trickle when we got there, the other views made up for it. The general store 2 miles down Skyline... More

I have stayed at Matthews Arm many times and have always had a great stay! Beautiful scenery. Great hiking. Lots of wild life in the surrounding areas. Nice campground for the price. Friendly, helpful rangers.

My daughter and I stayed here in tents. Clean, fairly secluded sites , tent pads. Though there are no showers or hook ups the place is spectacular. Saw two bear, one in an overlook sitting on someone's vacant car! Also saw several deer. The skyline drive is simply beautiful.

This is the second campground that I've stayed in at Shenandoah and I had another great stay in the park. This campground is located 22 miles from the park entrance in Front Royal; it's also the first campground you'll come to from this entrance. The sites are well maintained and offer a modest amount of privacy. A store to buy... More

Matthew's Arm is a great campground. The camping lots are spacious and laid out very well. There's room for two tents easily and maybe even three. The fire pits are well made. I walked the 6.5 mile trail, which has a beautiful overlook pay off at the end, but is a straight 3.25 mile uphill hike on the way back.... More

The sight was pretty. Everyone was friendly and lots of campers brought their pets. We stayed at C146. This sight faced trees but had campers on both sides. The entire sight lacks privacy. There were some more private spots in the A section. We didn't see any bears around the site, but we did see lots of deer. On thing... More
