Camping is at four NPS campgrounds: Mathews Arm, Big Meadows, Lewis Mountain and Loft Mountain. Most are open mid-May to October. Camping elsewhere requires a free backcountry permit, available from any visitor center. For not-so-rough lodging, stay at Skyland Lodge, Big Meadows or Lewis Mountain, all open from early March to mid-November. Reservations can be made by calling 800-999-4714 or booking online at www.visitshenandoah.com.
