My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Big Meadows Campground. It is well-run and maintained with friendly camp hosts and rangers. The bathrooms and water spouts are convenient. This is a popular campground because of its proximity to so many activities within the...More
Very nice Park with lots to see and do. Only spent three nights at the campground. It rained two! Went sightseeing and hiking. Lots of trails in the area with several leading to waterfalls. Visited the Lodge for games and WIFI. Cell reception is limited...More
We arrived Friday at noon and got the last available walk-in tent site. After reading some fairly negative reviews, I was concerned, but we ended up having a fantastic stay.
Bathrooms and showers extremely clean. Quiet during quiet hours. Big Meadows store had everything you...More

Well, that is exactly what you will get if you decide to camp in campsite 020 (also known as A20) in the “Tents Only” area at Big Meadows in Shenandoah National Park. This was our third camping trip to Shenandoah--we visited...More
Campsite is easy to find- right off of skyline drive (which is beautiful), and conveniently located near some great hikes. The campsite itself is very popular with campsites pretty close together, so not a lot of privacy if that's what you're looking for. I had...More

While the Rangers are very nice, they seem to be real sticklers for the rules. We have a motorcycle camper, which is more like a tent than a camper, but because it has small tires they would not let us park it on the grass ANYWHERE, because they said the rules say ALL tires must be on the pavement. They said if we did not park on the pavement, we would have to leave. This was sort of a problem because the tent section has to be stakes....we figured it out, but they DID come around and check. I did not see any really big family groups, but most of the camper sites are pretty close together, so you could install Grandma (or a couple of kids) in a tent and it would still be like having one site. If Grandma has a senior pass (we do) she can get a site for $10.00. And you can get in free to the park as long as she is with you. I would call them and ask if you can have seven on a site, but I would bet that they are not going to allow it....
