Hurricane Campground

Area Status: Closed

Located along a rushing mountain stream under the shade of hemlock and rhododendron, this campground offers a peaceful setting for quiet evenings around the campfire. While only 2 miles off State Highway 16, the setting feels much more remote. Hikers can walk from their campsite to the Appalachian Trail and many other nearby trails. This site is not recommended for large RVs.
