“Nice CG near Mount Rogers”

Reviewed Aug 23, 2018

Overall Rating

Clean and quiet with nice hosts. The bathhouse on my loop was clean with a warm shower and clean toilets. The tent area for my site was asphalt but a lot of others were not. Trailhead to Mt Rogers can be found in the CG but this route DOES NOT include the primary primary pony viewing trails without a detour. Bear activity is high. I en... more

“Fifth Wheel Friendly Basecamp to Explore Mt. Rogers Rec. Area”

Reviewed Aug 03, 2018

Overall Rating

Quiet campground and well maintained. You may hike to the highest point in Virginia, Mt. Rogers from the trailhead at the campground. I chose to drive to the Elk Garden trailhead located off Route 600 to avoid the steep climb out of the campground. Mt. Rogers is a 4.5 mile trek from the Elk Garden Trailhead, and 6.2 miles from the G... more

“A High and Peaceful Place”

Reviewed Jul 22, 2016

Overall Rating

On our way up to the Shenandoah, we decided to stop here at Grindstone campground because it was close to the Appalachian Trail, Damascus, and Grayson Highlands SP. This park is a Biodiversity Wilderness, our first day we saw a Black Bear crossing the street, deer, otters, groundhogs, and plenty of birds. The park has a nature trail th... more

“A Classic”

Reviewed Oct 19, 2015

Overall Rating

We traveled across country staying in national and state and national forest campgrounds. One thing we realized is that Virginia seems to have high standards for campgrounds, not just their state ones. So, this is a national forest campground with both water and electric hookups, plenty of space and trees between sites and spotless bat... more
