Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia Lodging and Camping
Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia
The Blue Ridge Parkway is a scenic highway that connects Shenandoah National Park and the Skyline Drive in Virginia, with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina and Tennessee.
The majority of the Parkway in Virginia runs through the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests and into North Carolina along mountain crests.
The attractions along the Virginia portion of the Parkway differ slightly from those on the North Carolina side.
In Virginia, the recreated mountain farm near Humpback Rocks at the beginning of the Parkway and Mabry Mill, further south, give visitors a glimpse of traditional mountain life in the early days of settlement.
