Thinking of driving from the beginning Skyline Drive in Northern VA down into the Blue Ridge Parkway. Looking for Full Hook Ups, any thoughts would be appreicated.

I know of no campgrounds on either the skyline drive or the BRP with full hookups, but there are campgrounds nearby with them. Lynchburg KOA, aka Wildwood Campground for example is only a mile off the parkway on VA 130.

We've been to Bear Den when we had a pop up. It's a great place for kids, busy activities in the summer. I believe it's open year round.

probably the closest you'll find to a full hook up campground would be Big Meadow. I believe it is water and electric in one section and the rest is electric only or no hook ups. I believe that ALL of them do have dump stations however so missing the sewer shouldn't be a problem.

Thank You all. This is good stuff. Keep It coming. What about things to do and sights to see? I saw a couple of cg's that are part of wineries. Seems like a good combination.

Actually there are at least 3 with full hookups, and that have entrances from the Blue Ridge Parkway. From the North. Miller Camping, located between mile posts 247 and 248, On the right coming from the North.

Then Raccoone Holler between mile posts 257, and 258, Again on the right coming down. Big sign in the meadow, but not on the parkway. This is our favorite.

Then Bear Den at mile post sign 324.8. Bear Den Mountain Road. there is no sign to the entrance, Commercial signs aren't allowed on the BRP. This one is on the Left coming down. If you get to Little Switzerland, you passed it

All have full hookups. We haven't been to Bear Den, but have to the other 2. Easy access to campsites in them.
All have web sites, So you can contact them. Especially Raccoone Holler, as it is VERY popular, and often hard to get a site. Call before you go,unless it is during the week.

Things to do, and see. Too many to tell. but here are a few. Between Raccoone Holler, and Bear Den. you will find Boone, Blowing Rock, Tweetsie Railroad, Grand Father Mountain, Linville Falls, and Linville Caverns. The Cone Mansion, Julian Price Park, and Price Lake. And of Course Little Switserland is just past Bear Den, as is Mount Mitchell. Just to name a few.

On the Blue Ridge Parkway at Rt 58 Meadows of Dan VA is Mabrys Mill nice stop, Restraunt etc. .....RV parking in the back...... also in that area the Chateau Moressette is a nice winery.

Keep in mind also several of the campgrounds & visitor centers on the parkway due to see-castration will not be open this season.

At Roanoke VA RT 220 there is a Walmart at a parkway exit if you need supplies.

All along the parkway there are private campgrounds just off it like near Meadows of Dan, Fancy Gap in Virginia.

Don't know if Peaks of Otter Rest. & Campground will be reopened soon or not.

When you get a chance go on the BRP website and order the trip planner. It will give you all you need to know about what is a different mile markers and and about the towns off the parkway. Great planner with lots of info.
