Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but if you’re shooting for that “wow" effect without dropping major Gs, the crystalline-crusted caves in Rocky Knob Campground’s most famous geological attraction, Rock Castle Gorge, are a very close second. As one of the original camping sites established along the Blue Ridge Parkway, Rocky Knob Campground has witnessed the history of Appalachia and managed to maintain its rugged beauty through generations. Come on down and see what the Old Dominion has to offer.
