Shenandoah is most known to its Skyline Drive over the ridge of the mountain range. The 101 mile road that runs the length from the park from North to south is really a beautiful drive with abundant turn outs for viewing the expansive landscape. These rolling hills are lush and covered with vegetation and wildlife. Loft Mountain Campground is at about mile marker 80 for this drive, about 20 miles north from the southern entrance, Rockfish Gap. Additionally it is about 15 miles south coming from the east / west entrance at Swift Run Gap. Either entrance is easily navigated. Once inside the campground,
you will see an abundance of sites, over 100. Although this campground is large, it features a private, quiet feeling each and every site. Set down the Appalachian Trail, you‘ll often find hikers occupying tent sites to rest their feet. The campground is easily navigable by larger rigs (35 feet ). The tree strewn campground has paved roads, and campsites are have paved pads, private, well mowed sites with picnic tables, fire rings, and a lot of space ! Wildlife here is abundant. We‘re well warned a few high level of bear activity during our visit, so we did possess a bear encounter while upon the Appalachian Trail just steps from camp. Deer will also be often seen within camp. The very best thing relating to this campground is that each site is spacious, beautiful, peaceful, and also a excellent spot to invest a couple of days. Some sites are slightly unlevel, but thankfully recreation. gov has done a pleasant job noting this on the website. You will find an abundance of group sites, overflow parking, a lovely camp store, showers, an amphitheater, and hiking trails. There isn‘t any NP Visitor’s Center at this campground ; you‘ll need to travel North to Byrd Visitor Center at milepost 51.
