Welcome to Loft Mountain Campground. Camping in Shenandoah National Park can be a fun and rewarding experience. Remember that you are sharing this space with plants, animals, and other campers. Consideration and cooperation are important. Obtaining a Campsite Sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis and through reservations. Make reservations up to 6 months in advance online at www.recreation.gov, or by calling 1-877-444-6777. Sites are $15/night. Camping fees are not refundable. Stays are limited to 30 nights in any calendar year. Check out time is noon. Clip your camping pass to your site post to show occupancy. You must pay camping fees within one hour of occupying a site. First-come, first-served campers: Subsequent night’s use of a campsite may not be possible due to reservations. Please check at the registration station for information. Campsites Campsites are limited to 6 people (OR 1 immediate family) per site. RV sites are limited to 1 RV (motorhome, pop-up, or 5th-wheel), 6 people, and 1 vehicle. Electric and water hookups are not available. Erect tents only on pads when provided. They must fit within established campsite and not negatively impact the surrounding area or resources. Park vehicles only on paved/graveled areas provided for your campsite. Additional parking is available beyond site A81, near the campground exit. Walk-to sites are for tents only and require a 25-100 yard walk to your campsite. Please do not trench your site or put nails in trees. Campsites are equipped with picnic tables, fire grates, and parking areas. Quiet Hours Visitors can purchase certified firewood in the Park, or gather dead wood on the ground in the Park. Do not saw, cut, chop, or harvest any parts from a standing tree, dead or alive. Due to the threat from the Emerald Ash Borer, firewood from outside the Park shall be USDA certified and labeled. Build fires only in designated fire grates, and do not build rock rings or burn trash in the grate. Never leave fires or hot coals unattended and extinguish them completely before leaving. Sanitation Wash dishes at your campsite; not in restrooms, drinking fountains, or at water spigots. Strain dishwater to remove food particles and dispose strained water only in the restroom utility sinks. Dispose of food particles in trash bins, not in sink drains. Trailers and RVs must empty sewage and wastewater at the dump station 1/4 mile from the campground. Water is a precious and limited resource, especially on top of the mountain; use it wisely. Please sort and place trash and recyclables in appropriate bins. Campstore, Laundry, and Showers Shenandoah National Park operates the campgrounds. The official park concessioner operates the campstore, laundry, and showers. Quarters are required for the shower and laundry machines. There is a change machine near the showers. Vehicles and Other Wheeled Devices All roads in the campground are one-way with a 10-mph speed limit. Keep all vehicles, motorcycles, trailers, and bicycles on paved areas at all times. Skates, rollerblades, skateboards, scooters, and similar devices are prohibited.

Keep food, garbage, equipment used to prepare or store food, and all scented items in a locked vehicle when not in use. Proper food storage is a must! Improperly stored food may be collected for your safety and that of Shenandoah’s wildlife. It is illegal to approach, feed, frighten, or disturb wildlife. All resources such as wildflowers, plants, animals, and artifacts are protected by law in national parks. You are responsible for the behavior and control of your pet. When outside of a vehicle or camping unit, pets must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet. Do not leave pets unattended. Please clean up after your pet and dispose of waste properly. Do not throw waste into the woods. Pet food and food bowls attract wildlife and must be stored in a locked vehicle when not in use. If needed, kennels are available in communities bordering the Park. Check the visitor guide for a list of trails not suitable for pets. Please do not take pets to Ranger Programs.
