Great campground and campsite location! Loft Mountain is quite secluded compared to other SNP campgrounds and features heavily wooded sites, bathrooms, showers, a modern camp store, great views of the mountain valleys, and easy access to the Appalachian trail on all three sides. If you enjoy tent camping with the feeling of being deep in the woods, but still enjoy a few creature comforts of home....this is the place for you.
I needed a site that could fit two tents and four people, with close access to the bathroom and utility sink, but was still reasonably shaded and private. Site E106 was perfect for all my major requirements. The bathroom/utility sink is next door with only a short walk. The woods surrounded the site on all sides and was accessible to our parked cars via a short access trail. In fact, the woods were so thick the bathroom and other campsites were barely visible. Nice!!
On this particular trip, there was a lot of bear activity in the campground. We saw a few bears around the sites and one up in a tree. The National Park Service even closed off one site and set a bear trap. So use caution and heed the park warnings/guidance when cooking and storing food.
I will definitely go back!
