Description

This is a beautiful free campground on the border of Virginia and West Virginia. There are ten sites, each with a picnic table, a BBQ pit, a fire pit, a large tent pad, and a parking spot. There is also a large parking lot for extra vehicles or for day use. The day use area has several BBQ pits and tables. There are also pit toilets, and a water spigot, although we didn't check if it worked since we always carry plenty just incase. Two trail heads start at this site. It is located about 55 minutes NW of Luray on the 675. The road in is good, but narrow and winding. Very beautiful. You can stay for free up to 21 days! US National Forests are amazing. The photos we've included are of different sites. The blue dot on the screenshot is Wolf Gap, the green marker is Luray, VA, for reference. No generators, please. Keep this peaceful place peaceful.

Only 1 of the campsites (#8) was taken when I arrived, so I took #4. Beautiful location, busy during the day with hikers. Bathroom was clean. Will definitely be coming back here.

Geat 10 site campground, no fees, no water but bathroom stocked and clean.

Great free campground. Sites were full but we stayed in our van in the parking lot and used the nice picnic area with multiple fire rings.

Great clean stop for the night. Can get crowded with the trailhead and picnic area being next to the campground.

I arrived after dark and most spots were full. I drive a crew cab Tacoma with 6-ft bed, and I wasn’t sure I’d fit many of the spots left. I stayed in site #8 and fit, but not by much. The campground was very dark (no security lighting), and sites seemed poorly cared for (overgrown, littered, blowdowns). I am very familiar with this region, but felt a little uneasy here. It was nice and cool, which was welcome.

Really nice place with 10 spots with fire pit. No crowd. Went there from 6/17 to 6/19 with a Roof Top Tent. Bathrooms extremely clean. NO water at all.

What a great spot!! Horrendous cell service so if you need to work from your laptop, forget about it. 10 spots available to pull into. Small driveway-style place to park (our 22ft Sprinter fit just fine) with a firepit, picnic table, flat place to pitch a tent (or two). Everyone was extremely courteous to each other. Arrived at 3:30 on a Friday & there were 4 spots left to choose from. There's a parking lot for hikers in the morning but you could definitely park there is all the spots were taken. I don't see how this place is big-rig friendly as it's kind of small. If you have a big-rig, you won't be able to fit into a parking space (25ft) & if you tried to park in the parking lot you'd be in the way. Do NOT come here without hiking up to Big Schlogg - the view is unbelievable. The bathroom (just a composting toilet) was very clean, not smelly, plenty of toilet paper. Overall, we were surprised at how well-maintained this sit was for a free place to camp. Stayed 2 nights. Will 100% be back here on our way back through.

Great place with great hiking to the Big Schlosce and the backcountry. We go here several times a year. Keep it a secret! It will be crowded on nice weekends especially with day use people. Open year round.

This site has access to great well kept trails. The eight sites are close together but are well maintained. It was very quiet this time of year but the 60 degree weather made it a perfect base camp for some great hiking and star gazing. Would absolutely visit it again.

Everything was taken when I got here late night. Toilet was unlocked and clean.

Beautiful campsite. Great hiking trails on site. You are camping on top of a mountain side. Only 10 sites, first come first serve for a spot. We had a RTT with annex and had plenty of space to open up and set up camp. Also, if you have others with you that have ground tent there is a nice flat area sectioned off at each site.

Great campground with excellent hiking/biking starting from the site. Potable water with vault toilets. Nothing fancy and not crowded during the colder months.
