The campground has a few loops, each with an open grassy field in the middle. The campsites line the inner and outer edges of the loops, and the sites on the outer edge tend to offer more privacy than those inside the loop. If you prefer tent camping, you get a nice perk here. One of the loops is dedicated to tent camping only. There’s a picnic area just across the Parkway, and a great hiking trail leads from the campground to the base of picturesque Crabtree Falls. The crabapple tree (Malus sylvestris), or “wild crab tree,” once flourished in this area. This loop trail is home to more than forty species of wildflowers, making it an ideal place to hike during spring and summer.
