A group of 8 people, including my husband and I, stayed here this past weekend on Friday and Saturday night. (We hiked and enjoyed the park on Saturday and Sunday.) We arrived around 9:45pm on Friday and were able to get two sites next to each other. The sites were grassy and cozy, surrounded by trees. Plenty of places of... More

Private sites, views and not the traffic of Big Meadows. Lot's of trails to hike in the area and if you are willing to do that you will see the bears. Berries are coming and we picked a half gallon in about 30 minutes. The showers at the camp store are BRAND NEW and BEAUTIFUL. You can find a site... More

There are tent only sites which are secluded and more closer to woods if you are planning to do tenting. they have walk up sites. On July 4th weekend there were sites that were vacant, so one don't need to do the advance booking or be worried that they might not get a campsite. There are ticks on the trails... More

We stayed as a foursome here. We enjoyed the campground. Bring bug spray. The good: - Lovely campsites, plenty of nice squishy grass to put tents on - The sites had lots of underbrush in between them, giving each site relative privacy - Each site had a pull-thru parking spot, making unpacking and re-packing the car easy - The camp...

Loft mountain was okay as far as campgrounds go. There were a few things that disappointed me. The bathrooms were fairly far away from the tent only sites and it was a fair walk in the dark to get to them. Some of the tent sites are 150 feet or so down the side of the mountain so it's a... More

Hubby and I went here a while back. This was a great place to camp out of all the ones that seem to be grouped together up here. Most quiet and affords more privacy than the other camp grounds, for sure. There are primo spots here, for sure - but they are reserved well in advance. Loved the hike we... More

The campground itself is Beautiful!!! When camping, we enjoy nature, and we found it here! I was not prepared, however, for the limited facilities. If you choose to go, be prepared. In each loop, there are restrooms and sinks, but no showers. There is no electricity in the restroom facilitates or in the campground. The showers are coin operated and... More

Nice helpful rangers, beautiful trails nearby, clean facilities. There are tons of spots for camping. We hiked from the campsite to some falls off the AT. If you forgot something essential the camp store likely has it, and they so see firewood.

We camped at Loft Mountain for a night in October. This is a fairly large campground with almost 200 campsites. It's located about 80 miles south of the Front Royal Entrance to Shenandoah. So if you enter at Front Royal, it's approximately a 2 hour drive along Skyline Drive to the campground. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't that great when we... More
