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 camping supplies like wood is located 2 miles south of the grounds. There aren't showers located at the campground, so keep this in mind if you'll need to shower before departing. The closest showers are several miles away. Between Mathews Arm and Lott Mountain, I prefer Loft Mountain personally but this is still a good site if you're in the norther part of the park. See my review of Loft Mountain for more information about that campground.
