Have a great trip, I am eager to hear what you think of the area, we saw a tiny part last year but only from the highway.....which sucks.

I camped in the park one night, stopping off on the way to DC. Wish I could have stayed longer, would have liked to visit some of the Civil War sites. I remember it was very beautiful, great views over the valley. And lots of deer wandering through the camp site.

OOO! I'm sorry! I forgot about this thread!
We had a great time, very relaxing, beautiful area.
We went camping with another family and stayed here: http://campingisfun.com/ it was a great place if you have kids, very very clean, camping is not really my thing but my husband had fun fishing and stuff and the kids enjoyed it so well worth a visit!

If you're going in August you may want to stay higher up on skyline drive where it's cool enough to stay in non-air-conditioned cabins or motel-like accommodation in the national park. We've been to Skyland Resort a couple of times. Ask for a non-smoking standard room on the upper level (important this so as to benefit from the valley view over the trees).

If you do stay on Skyline Drive, bear in mind the extra driving time. It's a 100 mile long twisty mountain road with a 35mph speed limit, it's a 3800 feet elevation, and there are only a few exits down into the valley, so it can take a while to drive to/from anything. There are restaurants & bars at the resorts but bring your own snacks and beverages as there are just a few small shops catering to the camping crowd. Fill up with gas before you ascend, I think there's just the one gas station at Big Meadows. If you go hiking down to one of the waterfalls off the drive, watch for bears on the trails. Lovely sunsets when you're up there, definitely worth driving to one of the lookout points facing West, you'll most likely meet a few other people with the same idea and it's friendly. The dawn mist rising up the mountainside tickling your toes as you sit on the balcony is nice
