About Loft Mountain Campground


Perched on top of Big Flat Mountain, this is one of the largest campgrounds in the park. Loft Mountain is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts, providing a wilderness getaway in the historic Virginia mountains.


Shenandoah National Park has over 500 miles of trails, including 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Some trails lead to a waterfall or lookout, while others wind deep into the forest and wilderness.

Trails to the Big Run Wilderness area are accessible from the campground, and pristine waterfalls are a common site along the popular trails.

Wildlife viewing is also a popular pastime, with black bears, wild turkey, deer, birds and countless other animals abundant across the park.

The campground is located right off of Milepost 80 on the famous Skyline Drive, which runs 105 miles north and south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Stunning views are available from any of the 75 scenic overlooks.


This expansive campground offers 200 campsites, as well as modern conveniences like flush toilets, water and dump station, which create a comfortable camping experience. Pay showers nearby at the campstore.
