Activities and Amenities
Shenandoah National Park includes 300 square miles of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the southern Appalachians. The park rises above the Virginia Piedmont to its east and the Shenandoah Valley to its west.
Loft Mountain's location on the mountain top offers campers sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the surrounding rolling hills and open meadows.
Shenandoah National Park has over 500 miles of trails, including 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Some trails lead to a waterfall or lookout, while others wind deep into the forest and wilderness.
Trails to the Big Run Wilderness area are accessible from the campground, and pristine waterfalls are a common site along the popular trails.
Wildlife viewing is also a popular pastime, with black bears, wild turkey, deer, birds and countless other animals abundant across the park.
The campground is located right off of Milepost 80 on the famous Skyline Drive, which runs 105 miles north and south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Stunning views are available from any of the 75 scenic overlooks.
This expansive campground offers nearly 200 campsites, including sites that can accommodate larger groups. Picnic areas are provided, as well as modern conveniences like flush toilets, showers and dump stations, which create a comfortable camping experience.
Several visitors centers, bookstores, restaurants and exhibits are scattered throughout the Shenandoah National Park. Click here for more information.
