Campgrounds on the Blue Ridge Parkway!

Camping is a popular outdoor activity for people traveling through the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina on the Blue Ridge Parkway. This region of the Blue Ridge Mountains is home to a number of state and federal forests and parks that provide camping sites, campgrounds, or backwoods camping opportunities.  

If you own or have the opportunity to rent an RV, you have the potential for an unforgettable trip. Traveling in a camper will present more chances to immerse yourself in and enable you to feel closer to some of America's most beautiful natural settings.
