Amazing views
Hipcampers say this spot has amazing views.
Welcome to the Lookout. We have made many improvements to our land in the short time we own it. We plan to keep upgrading our property. We plan to use the land for Recreational activites. We have a Hiker Hostel in the Building. The Building was previously the Blue Mountain Lookout Restaurant but has been neglected for approximately 20 years. We are trying to restore the property to bring it back to life.

Sweet ridgeline site
Hosts were easy to communicate with and attentive Great site if the weather is good. Bad site if it’s not. It’s exposed at the edge of a ridgeline which would make it super super awesome on a clear day or night. When we went it was not the case. The wind whipped up the slope from the valley and pummeled us relentlessly. So keep that in mind if the weather report seems to be poor. The site itself is fantastic. Flat, open and plenty of trees to tie a tarp or hammock to. The gun club in the valley was annoying and non stop shooting. the road noise wasn’t great but I was expecting that due to the location. Appalachian trail nearby for good hiking. Awesome place. I’ll be back and hopefully the weather will be more cooperative.

Excellent primitive site
The Lookout is an excellent little escape from our busy lives. Nestled on the side of a mountain, with a great view. The host supplied kindling in a dry box, and a porta potty close by. This is primitive camping at its finest with no running water, and just off of the Appalachian Trail. As my family likes it!! Real camping. Only negative was hearing the trucks coming down 309 at night. We will absolutely be returning. Thank you!!

Great Spot
Awesome Camp Site! Very spacious and private with fantastic views of the surrounding valley. Close to the Appalachian Trail (5 Min Walk) and lots of Stores and Sundries nearby also. Bring water for sure, but everything else was very convenient and relaxing. Definitely will come back to the Lookout for sure!

The hosts were very friendly and treated us when we arrived. They provided paper and kindling to start a fire. The view of the valley below was beautiful, hard to see the setting sun but great sunrise.
