: Can I camp along the Parkway or at an overlook?
A: The only place along the Parkway that you can primitive camp without a permit is along the Appalachian Trail from Rockfish Gap (MP 0) to Dripping Rock (MP 9.6). Other overnight camping is only permissible at the eight Parkway campgrounds.

Report Check-In

tucked off of the road, but not as scenic as other look outs, more in/around trees. it’s a windy night and acorns (i’m guessing) keep dropping on our rig. super dark and quiet overnight. trash cans. picnic tables. 1-2 bars at&t. no pit toilets.

Report Check-In

The campgrounds are closed here for some reason right now so we spent the night here. No problem with authorities. There was a lot of activity from visitors stopping to see the view though until after sunset.

Report Check-In

Nice pull off from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Not very private but okay for 1 night

Report Check-In

Picnic Area off the Blue ridge Parkway. No signs prohibiting overnight parking. Boondocked here with no issues. The parking area is set back from the Parkway, so you are not visible to passing traffic.

Report Check-In

Excellent place to boondock with a dog. Picnic tables allow you to cook outside instead of in the van

Report Check-In

This overlook is a little set back from the parkway. Picnic tables and a short trail to a 2nd view point which is nice for a evening stroll with the dog.

This overlook is a little set back from the parkway. There is a short trail to a 2nd view point which is nice for a stroll with the dog. Overnight camping is not allowed anywhere on the parkway though..
