Big Meadows campground is my favorite campground. It has a lot of sites and is set up in a way that really makes sense. I have camped many places all over the U.S. and this one overall is best, in my opinion. Shenandoah is a...More
This is a great central location in the national park. It is near several good hiking trails and waterfalls. We also could make the drive easily to see Monticello. Pay Showers are available. Campground was pretty quiet overall. Saw lots of different birds right from...More
We come camping to the Shenandoah National Park several times a year. Each campground offers something different. While we usually enjoy our stay, Big Meadows is a large and busy campground. It is generally rather noisy during the morning and evening hours when most people...More

While the Rangers are very nice, they seem to be real sticklers for the rules. We have a motorcycle camper, which is more like a tent than a camper, but because it has small tires they would not let us park it on the grass ANYWHERE, because they said the rules say ALL tires must be on the pavement. They said if we did not park on the pavement, we would have to leave. This was sort of a problem because the tent section has to be stakes....we figured it out, but they DID come around and check. I did not see any really big family groups, but most of the camper sites are pretty close together, so you could install Grandma (or a couple of kids) in a tent and it would still be like having one site. If Grandma has a senior pass (we do) she can get a site for $10.00. And you can get in free to the park as long as she is with you. I would call them and ask if you can have seven on a site, but I would bet that they are not going to allow it....
