16-MAY-20: Campground currently closed due to COVID-19. Parked at the neighboring trailhead, walked through campground to get some photos. 12miles / 20minutes to Front Royal, Virginia, which has all amenities. 32 sites, level enough, most have tent pads, are large enough for medium-length RVs (sorry, didn't measure), with room to park a tow vehicle. Very clean area, each site has a fire ring and picnic table. No hookups, but fresh water available at spigots around the park. Clean bathhouse on-site. Nice brook/creek behind the campground that can get very rough and flood during sustained heavy rains; wouldn't recommend trying to swim in it. Lots of people fishing the brook downstream. Very easy access to Elizabeth Furnace Day Use Area, and numerus Easy-to-Difficult Hikes. Hike maps and trail info available at www.alltrails.com and www.hikingupward.com
Self-Registration station.
Campground Host site next to Bath House.
Site Rates are $16/night in 2019/2020, and rates go up to $20/night in 2021.
National Park passholders are entitled to 50% discount.
Fort Valley Road (VA 678) is 1-lane each direction; narrow and winding; wouldn't recommend for Class A's, and could be tough for trailers over 26'.

Off the beaten path, yet close enough to Strausburg . Nice , clean park with a very friendly host . Not many large sites for big rigs but I got lucky that on a Saturday evening the best one was available. No WiFi, TV , cell phone service, just a good book.
Give it a try, you’ll like it .
