Went there in the middle of the week and had no problem getting a camp site for just $10. Bathrooms were extremely clean. Camp sites were relatively small but they did the job. Pretty much all the sites are enclosed by large trees keeping you cool when that sun first hits your tent early in the morning. I would give it a 4/5 since there was nothing over the top about these grounds, however I had 0 complaints.

Mathews Arm was a beautiful campsite surrounded by overlooks where you can catch outstanding sunsets and sunrises. The campsite hosts were very welcoming and helpful in planning out my hikes in Shenandoah. The other campers also invited me to the fires every night and asked if i wanted to join them on some of their hikes. I will definetly be camping at Mathews Arm again!
