Overview

Overview

Raccoon Branch Campground, nestled at the base of Dickey Knob, offers scenic mountain views, hiking trail access from campsites and cool mountain streams. Campers can access Dickey Creek and the Raccoon Branch from the campground. The most notable time to visit is fall, when the trees boast gorgeous fall foliage.

With a location just 11 miles from Interstate 81, the beautiful campground is easily reached by drivers heading out from one of the surrounding cities.

Natural Features:

The campground is at an elevation of 2,880 ft., along a large grassy area, surrounded by pines, hardwoods and rhododendrons. Perched in the Appalachian Mountains, Raccoon Branch is part of the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, a 200,000-acre stretch of designated wilderness areas.

Recreation:

The beautiful Dickey Knob Trail takes hikers to the top of Dickey Knob for spectacular views of Sugar Grove and Rye Valley. The creek provides a setting for wading and fishing.

Facilities:

Every site accommodates RV or tent camping and nearly half the campsites have electric hookups. Perks of the campground include flush toilets, drinking water, paved roads and spurs and a dump station. A volunteer host is onsite to welcome visitors and offer advice on the region.

Free WiFi is available for campers at the sites with electric hookups.

Nearby Attractions:

Hike the Appalachian Trail, which extends more than 2,175 miles throughout the Appalachian Mountains across 14 states. The trail was designated as the first National Scenic Trail.
