Overview

Overview

Located on the famous Blue Ridge Parkway in the green rolling hills of rural Virginia, Rocky Knob Campground is ideal for a traditional outdoor camping experience.

Natural Features:

The Blue Ridge Parkway is a scenic byway with plenty of natural attractions and recreational opportunities for visitors. Aside from natural features, the parkway is also a cross-section of Appalachian mountain history. Stretching almost 500 miles along the crest of the Blue Ridge mountains through North Carolina and Virginia, it encompasses some of the oldest historic sites of both pre-historic and early European settlements.

Rocky Knob Campground, one of the first established sites along the Blue Ridge Parkway, is home to several famous geological attractions. Rock Castle Gorge, known for its beautiful rock crystalline quartz formations, was once home for several mountain families whose lives are remembered through the old apple orchards and abandoned stone chimneys.

Recreation:

The campground is located in the Rocky Knob Recreation area, a vast expanse of more than 4,000 acres of forest.

The site offers easy access to the Rock Castle Gorge Trail--an extensive 10.8-mile loop trail ranging in elevation from 1,700 to 3,572 feet. Rock Castle Gorge, a 1,500-foot ravine carved by the waters of Rock Castle Creek, is the focal point of this trail, offering hikers breathtaking scenery.

Numerous tours and interpretive talks are given near the Gorge and surrounding trails during the summer, offering campers the chance to learn more about the area's historical significance and abundant plants and wildlife.

Facilities:

Rocky Knob Campground combines the exhilaration of a traditional outdoor camping experience with modern amenities like flush toilets and drinking water. Both RV and tent sites are available, each equipped with tables, fire rings and grills, perfect for picnics, barbecues or late night s'mores roasting.

Nearby Attractions:

The campground is about 30 miles from Mount Airy, North Carolina, which offers grocery stores, gas stations and medical facilities.

There are also multiple wineries nearby that offers tours and tastings.
