Just what we were looking for. A beautiful, wooded, quiet and well maintained campground. Sites were easy to pull in or back in. Plenty of sites to chose from that were private and no one was too close. Rangers come by to check which is fine. Bathrooms were clean and close enough. We saw deer but no bears but this campground is noted for wildlife. There is a store and grill within 5 mi. and lots of trails to hike on the Skyline. Wonderful place to stay.

Very pleasant campground, saw a black bear cross the road just before entering the campground.

So peaceful. We decided to go the day of so we didn't have any reservations. There were about 15 sites first come first serve when we got there. We stayed on Row B and loved it. Even though almost every site was filled, it was still quiet. Plenty of trees and lots of deer.

Every spot at the campground is completely open and extremely close to each other. There is exceptional traffic through the loop through the day and night due to the security officers that prowl on guests. If you like being harassed by park rangers for trying to enjoy a simple quite weekend with your girlfriend than this is the place for you. Be advised that the park rangers will perform car and tent searches with no rhyme or reason at all and strictly enforce "quite hours" which they deem to mean that you must go to sleep and make no noise... The whole time I was there I felt as if I was being treated like a 5 year old child. I cant believe I payed money to be treated that way. I would not go back to the campground if it were free and advise anyone thinking of going to please pick anther campground in the park seeing that I have not had this problem anywhere else in the park. There was nothing good about this site except for the fact that it is close to a lot of fun activities and short hikes. The only way that i would recommend this campground is if you are coming with small children and don't mind not having ANY privacy. If i could have got my money back i would have. I hate being negative but with this post I hope I can save as many people as I can from having a horrible weekend.

Had a wonderful time camping for several days. I think it is possibly a little quieter than some of the other grounds as it is less open ( it has more trees), and it has no showers or laundry facilities, which are a 40min drive away in Big Meadows. There is a small shop about 2 miles south for the essentials, and souvenirs. Although we were told that there were lots of bear sightings in the campground we were never in the right place at the right time - though we saw plenty of bears and other wildlife in the rest of the park. Be aware that all the campsites are at around 3000ft, so the temperature is about 6 degrees C (not sure how many degrees f that is) cooler than the surrounding area (Lurey, Front Royal). Additionally, the ground is quite rocky which can be hard on your tent pegs.
