Even if you task yourself with imagining the most scenic campground ever, chances are you can’t conjure up Hurricane Campground. Shaded by lush hemlock and rhododendron, and situated near a picture-perfect mountain stream, the breathtaking campground gives you easy access to the Appalachian Trail, and a host of other trails as well. But don’t just take our word for it; the Forest Service calls Hurricane Campground “one of the best kept secrets in southwest Virginia.”

Overall a good campground: clean, remote, near trails and streams and lovely Marion, VA - but the sitemaps don't tell you about the changing topography of the place. We were in site 24, which appeared to be about 50 feet from a toilet/shower - but we got there to learn that we were also about forty feet above the facilities, with a steep incline between us. That makes for a tough nighttime trip, especially if you are challenged by steep trails.
