Rocky Knob Camping

Rocky Knob is one of the first developed areas on the Blue Ridge Parkway and is noted for its rustic and rural landscape, plus great camping and hiking.  It is an outdoor lovers' paradise with easy access to the Parkway's Mabry Mill and the Chateau Morrisette Winery.

A campground has over 100 sites for tents or recreational vehicles but no water or electrical hookups to individual sites. There are no showers or sewer hookups. Comfort station and dump stations are available.

The Rocky Knob area offers many diversions for the visitor, including a  visitor center. Located near the intersection of  the Parkway with Virginia Route 8, the Rocky Knob recreation area covers  more than 4000 acres. Interpretive talks and demonstrations are given  in the summer months and four trails offer a variety of scenic and  historical wonders. Rocky Knob is an accurate description of the shape  of the mountain that bears its name. Rock Castle Gorge, known for its  beautiful rock crystalline quartz formations, was once home for several  mountain families whose lives we remember through the apple orchards and  abandoned stone chimneys.
