Camping Tips in the Blue Ridge Mountains

  • Because the weather or temperature can change with altitude in the Blue Ridge Mountains, dressing in layers will allow you to stay comfortable.
  • Sudden showers are a common occurrence in the mountains, especially in summer, making a poncho or other water resilient wear almost a necessity.
  • Make sure that you don’t trespass onto private property.
  • Bring plenty of water for your stay. Don’t trust that the water in rivers or ponds is okay to drink.
  • Pack a first aid kit.
  • Wear comfortable shoes or hiking boots that are suitable for the terrain in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
  • Don’t leave valuables in your car, RV or campground.
  • Check to make sure you are allowed to build a fire and that permits are not required. Some places only allow a cooking fire or will provide a fire ring to use.
  • Leave wild animals alone.
  • Do not leave food or food related items such as cooking utensils unsecured.
  • Remember always to collect your trash and take it with you, or use a proper receptacle.
