The Laurel Creek Campground and Outpost, LLC. is a premier campground facility open to small and large groups. Scout Troops, Church Groups, Veteran Groups, and many other organizations are invited to come experience the Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area in the highlands of Virginia. The surrounding areas offer numerous activities for the adventurous heart, such as horseback riding, hiking, fishing, swimming, and mountain biking.

  • The campground is located a short distance off Interstate 81 in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains.
  • Just 15 minutes to the Creeper Trail Head, allowing early entry to the trail.  Bike rentals are available at White Top Mountain.
  • The new 30 minute express trip back to the campground via Love’s Mill Road from Damascus eliminates the old narrow and curvy Highway 58 route.
  • Reasonably priced food items are available for delivery from Chilhowie Pizza

We offer full RV sites with water and electrical connections, mini-cabins, and primitive tent camping areas. The Appalachian Trail and Virginia Creeper Trail are easily accessible and only minutes away! Families and other groups can utilize our campground to serve as their base camp, with enclosed shelters and full bathroom facilities, during their visit to the majestic Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area.

We encourage groups to reserve early through the website or call 276-388-3020 for information and registration.

We recently teamed with Mt. Rogers Veterans Stand Down and Dead Drift Outfitters to help disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings.

Come discover the Laurel Creek Valley, Mt. Rogers and the great
Appalachian Trail of Southwest Virginia! Want more information? Reach out to us directly through our Contact Us page.

“…untrammeled by man, where man is a visitor who does not remain, and has outstanding opportunities for primitive recreation.”
