I camped there a year ago on my way down the East Coast to Florida where I have met a group of hikers/explorers every year for some time now. I am planning my trip this year and will stay there again. It is not too far off Interstates 81 and 66 and a quick ride to Skyline Drive, whose campgrounds are not open this time of year. I was the only camper in the park when I retired for the night, another had shown up through the course of the night. No facilities were open due to the time of year, but the area was well maintained. I took a short hike on one of the area's many trails then got back on the road. Beautiful area. They accept Access Passes making it quite the bargain.

Have camped here several times--both in the campground, and backpacking in to the back country. Lots of hiking. Have seen others on horseback and seems ideal for that. Neat rock formations and Interesting historical cabin and information about the iron industry of 19th century. Good place for family tent camping.
