Leaving Gettysburg heading to Dandridge TN Rally via US 81, any suggestions on campgrounds along the 81 near Reanoke VA?

There are plenty. The two we've stayed at the Natural Bridge KOA and the Harrisonburg KOA. 81 is a nice easy drive all the way to 40.

Finally found a KOA in Luray VA for $83 a night x2 = $166. Not a happy camper : (
Most places were full along our hwy 81 route. Can't stay were we are at (apple festival) full here too so we have to leave.
Dandridge TN Anchor Down is full so we can't get there early.
Almost considered a hotel would have been probably cheaper : )

We stayed at Luray KOA this summer. Nice and quite campground. If you have time do the Luray Caverns tour or go up on Skyline Drive. I would think you would see some fall colors.

Used Passport America to stay at Endless Caverns, New Market, VA for half price. Huge sites.

Fort Chiswell RV Park Max Meadows, VA is a Good Sam Park with FUH + cable that is reasonable at $31.50 = tax = $34.76

Both are right of I-81....easy off...easy on

Sounds like a good time to find a Walmort or Cracker Barrell?

We have stayed at Fort Chiswell several times; good park.

Check out the post on Chantilly Farms recent here; 56 miles from Roanoke.

We stayed at the KOA just a couple miles outside of Luray VA. Expensive like $83 a night but very nice Campground. Large sites with patio fire pits and picnic tables. The place is well taken care of. Surrounded by farm property with farm animals.
Our campsite was up high overlooking the farms below, great view. They have a dog park and playground.
The office did not have any supplies or food but the town is just 3 miles up the road.

It was the Apple festival going on that's why all the KOA and other campgrounds were full, it was either within a 100 miles of Gettysburg or Dandridge.
I leave Dandridge on Sunday and still don't know where I'm going that's why we don't book to far in advance.

Might I suggest Tom Sawyers in West Memphis, nice park on the River (follow their directions to get to the park not your GPS unless it agrees with them).

Check out Cedars of Lebanon SP. Not sure how far you willing to travel from Anchor Downs, but this cg is east of Nashville.

When we left Dandridge last year we stayed at a cg west of Nashville, on same road that goes to Loretta Lynn Ranch cg. It was maybe block off interstate highway, it’s ok, in tree’d area. I don’t recall the name. For us, ok for overnight.

Safe trip y’all.
