  • This is a useful stop whilst doing the Skyline Drive. There is a gift store, restrooms, and plenty of parking.  more »
  • Short loop road offers many different picnic spots with good parking. Open pit toilet, but otherwise a well equipped picnic area. Very peaceful.  more »

  • This area has it all. The picnic area gorgeous and clean and plenty of space. It's located off the Skyline Drive at mile marker 24. 1 and is open year-round. There is even a little store which holds camping supplies, food and you can even buy gifts. There's also plenty of overlooks and Hikes to do nearby so plan your day wisely. Hopefully this helps you out some.
  • A beautiful place for some respite, to feel a breeze under the shade and buy a few souvenirs. The store has postcards and stamps as well!
