Mount Solon, VA
Date Visited: May 2019
Site: B-12—PULL-THROUGH, FULL HOOKUPS, 50 AMP
WE PAID: $35 PER NIGHT
Review: This is a park that you really have to want to go to. There’s no easy way off the freeway, and GPS can send you for miles along narrow country roads, especially if you’re arriving from the south.
The check-in process was slow, even though we had a reservation, and not very informative. But more critically, the roads are full of potholes, and the sites are crazy—no clearly designated place to park your rig. Show up and figure out what angle works for you.
The water, electric and sewer hookups were spread out at the site, so trying to angle the RV so that all the cords would reach their various connections was very challenging. You basically park on the grass under the trees (very pretty) any which way that works.
We were at the other end of the campground from the natural chimneys, and therefore had that end of the park to ourselves, so it was very quiet. It’s also very dark at night, so if you like a campsite in a natural setting, this is a good choice.
We chose this campground because it was close to friends and to Shenandoah National Park. It worked well for those two reasons, but I’m not sure I would stay here again otherwise. It’s really far off the main road and not very well organized.
