Where to camp late April

I am planning a trip late April. What are reccomended camp sites. It appears Big Meadow is the only national park campground open that early. Should I be concerned about finding a camp site since I can reserve and have a ten hour trip to get there?

1. Re: Where to camp late April

Another campground in SNP, Lewis Mountain Campground, opens mid April according to the Shenandoah website:


With such a long drive and unable to make a reservation, your concerns are understandable. You may consider contacting Big Meadows and Lewis Mountain Campgrounds closer to your travel date to see how full they are running. May also want to have an alternate campground selected in advance. Good luck and enjoy Shenandoah.
