Mount Pisgah Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is the highest campground on the entire Blue Ridge Parkway, at nearly 5,000 feet. And that is just the beginning of the superlatives here. Try secluded sites just for tent campers in a high-country forest, complete with stately spruce trees. How about nature trails circling the campground? Throw in some new hot showers added to the comfort stations. Add some fantastic views along the parkway, and you have a great tent-camping destination. The campground is wonderfully integrated into the mountain landscape of greater Mount Pisgah, specifically just below Flat Laurel Gap, amid the headwaters of Pisgah Creek and the 85-acre Flat Laurel bog, a rare high-country wetland where wind-sculpted birch and maple trees shade the campsites. Rhododendron and mountain laurel grow in dense thickets that offer plenty of privacy. Evergreens tower above all other vegetation. In this woodland, four different loops put like-minded campers together."
