The vibe at Big Meadows Campground
Drop some Big Meadows Campground knowledge on us.
I've camped at Big Meadows twice. The group of women I backpack with and I did the AT from Front Royal to Big Meadows one year, and then Rockfish Gap north to Big Meadows the following year. Coming in off the back country, I can confidently say that the showers are amazing. As are the blackberry milkshakes.
Amazing campground! Flush toilets and coin showers and laundry. Super friendly and helpful rangers and hosts. Lodge close by for warm meals and drinks. Awesome views and hiking trails really close. They have reserved sites and also first come walk up sites. Highly recommend. Great for RVs and tents in different sections. Planned on staying one night and ended up there for three.
One of the few places on the Skyline Drive that you can buy gasoline! A small hotel and rustic cabins are available if camping isn't your thing. Camping is available nearby at Loft mountain. Also has a full service restaurant and a separate recreation/bar room with live acoustic music on some weekend nites.
