While the campground does not rate high in the privacy category, the other factors associated with a good camping experience outweigh this one negative factor. The hiking is excellent, being unmatched anywhere in the southeast. Add the super hiking to the fishing, mountain biking and bouldering opportunites and you have a camping destination that is superb. Two notes of caution: (1) It rains frequently, so bring a tarp, rope and poles to create a rain cover for the picnic table at your campsite; (2) Even in the summertime, the weather can get downright chilly at the elevations encountered in the park and the surrounding Mt. Rogers high country, so bring adequate clothing.
