Big Meadows Campground is located at Milepost 51 on Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park, approximately two hours from Washington, DC. With more than 200 campsites, Big Meadows is a family oriented campground with access to hiking trails, ranger led programs, and concessionaire facilities. Campsites include a place for a tent or RV, a fire ring, and a picnic table. The RV dump station is located approximately one-half mile from the campground. Campsites are available on a first come, first served basis during the spring and fall shoulder seasons. Shenandoah National Park includes 300 square miles of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the southern Appalachians. The park rises above the Virginia Piedmont to its east and the Shenandoah Valley to its west. Two peaks within Shenandoah National Park, Stony Man and Hawksbill, exceed 4,000 feet.
