Hello. I am looking for suggestions for campgrounds for a long weekend trip in the fall out of Roanoke VA. It's going to be the first trip out for the tear for me and the wife. I used the camp as a kid but the wife is pretty new but a good sport. I am looking for something pretty but not a massive challenge to get to. I like wooded parks and am ok with private or public parks. I have looked at places in the Jefferson national forest and also considered Fairy Stone state park and campgrounds on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Electric sites would probably be a good idea for the first trip out. I am thinking a couple/three hour trip might be a reasonable travel time. Thoughts? Places I should look up?

Thanks in advance folks.

Grayson State Park ... nformation
Was there about 6 weeks ago. Quite nice and clean.

Sherando just south of Waynesboro ... ecid=73959
Also nice. Lived near there much earlier.

Douthat State Park ... nformation
My son lives just south of there. Used to fish there years ago.

Hear is a link showing places south of you.
I stayed at Grindstone 2 years ago. Also nice.

Good luck.
