This is a private campground right off the blue ridge parkway which is at a mile high elevation. Campground host was very friendly and accomodating for us to pick our own site. We chose site 21 which like many other sites offered spectacular mountain views and was also very spacious and private. If I was rating the views alone it would easily be a five star rating. We saw an elk each evening during sunset hour each night we stayed. Plus the view of the sunset was gorgeous.
I would like to emphasize that although private this campground is very primitive. Yes they offer hot showers but the facilities are not well maintained and very primitive. In addition, their is only one bathroom with hot showers in the front of the campground and flushing toilets in only one other location for the entire campground. We used our outside shower and used their bathroom facilities only if needed. The campground host said they were going to update the showers this year and adding additional flushing toilets.
In conclusion, in spite of the description of the bathrooms, we left with plans of returning because of the views, the wildlife and the understanding of what we can expect of primitive facilities.
