Campgrounds begin reopening on Blue Ridge Parkway
The pandemic shut down campgrounds along the Blue Ridge Parkway back in the spring, but some campgrounds are beginning to open again, the National Park Service said in a news release. Four campgrounds will reopen beginning July 31—Julian Price Park Campground and Linville Falls Campground in North Carolina and the Peaks of Otter Campground and Rocky Knob Campground in Virginia.
The park service says they are “working with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and using a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis.” Reservations for the campgrounds are now available through www.recreation.gov with dates beginning July 31.
