We stayed for one Saturday night in October during the peak fall color season. We weren't able to make a reservation at our favorite spot, Big Meadows, because after a certain date during the year, all campsites are first-come, first-served. So, we left Maryland early (ok, not as early as we planned), and headed down to Shenandoah. We entered the... More

It is a scenic area, but the rangers were very bad tempered. We had a group of 5 families with children from 5 to 16 yrs old and adults 35-45 yrs old. After 10pm the rangers came up and very nastily told us it was "quiet time and we needed to go to sleep or he was going to fine... More

We arrived Friday with a large group of people and a few kids and 2 dogs ready to have a great weekend and enjoy staying up late talking around the camp fire. Well for starters, who ever did the site layouts did a horrible job! The picnic tables were way too close to the campfire and the tables nor fire... More

I stayed at Mathews Arm Campground for a recent camping trip and was very pleased with the outcome. I couldn’t believe such a beautiful quiet scenic place could be so close to the DC area! Since all the reserved campsites were already booked I showed up around 3ish on Friday and lucked out with a wonderful spot for $15 a... More

Myself and two others stayed at this campground this past weekend. A handful of sites can be booked online via www.recreation.gov. Although we reserved a site online we switched after finding a better spot. Here follows a few of my observations that might be helpful. Many sites on the inner loops that are closer to the restrooms have small well... More

What a great place to camp! It's a hidden gem in Shenandoah National Park. Come in the middle of the week and you'll practically have the place to yourself. Weekends are another story, as the masses of people escape from the city (D.C.) up to the mountains.
