17 Best Places To Camp In Virginia For Every Type Of Adventure

Virginia’s diverse landscape caters to every kind of outdoor enthusiast.

Devils Backbone Camp

The variety of landscapes in Virginia makes it one of the most beautiful states in the South. From the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains and the scenic Appalachian Trail to the shorelines of both the coast and inland lakes, it’s challenging to determine which vantage point is the best. Outdoor enthusiasts can thrive within Virginia’s borders, whether taking a weekend hike in the forest or exploring a waterway by kayak on a Tuesday afternoon.

Whether you plan on visiting Virginia or reside in the Old Dominion, one of the best ways to soak in the scenery is to go camping. Go old school and set up a tent with your partner at a primitive campsite, prepare your RV for a weekend getaway with the family, or gather your best friends for a glamping overnight in a yurt. No matter the experience you desire, Virginia has a campground to fit the bill.

If you plan on driving an RV, Spacious Skies Shenandoah Views is ideal and has 76 sites set up for RV usage, including several convenient pull-through spaces. Additionally, the property offers eight tent sites, two deluxe cabins, and four yurts for the ultimate glamping experience. One of the area’s main draws is Shenandoah Valley National Park, which is why this campground is so popular with visitors. Spacious Skies has several amenities, including a dog park, playground, laundry facilities, and two swimming pools. However, experiences like a jumping pillow and gem mining make this location near Luray a unique stay.
