Whether you're in your camper or sleeping bag in a tent, the Big Meadows Campground is second to none for views, wildlife viewing, scenery, park activities and close to the Appalachian Trail and waterfalls. There is so much to do here, you could easily stay...More

Hi there are quite a number of tent sites that are first come first serve. Not sure how busy the campground is in october but My daughters and i went the first week in august and had plenty to choose from when we arrived on Thursday. No question folks start to arrive on Friday but i don't recall them being sold out (but to be fair there was a flood watch that Friday!). Bottom line, you should have no problem showing up Thursday and probably even ok early Friday. But with a six hour drive I'd err on the side of caution and try to get there as early as possible.
