    I can't remember the name of the river, but this is where I encounted the second closure of the parkway.

    Hey Rog...I'm leaving Nashville on Wednesday and heading up to Waynesboro to do the BRP. I see you just did it. Had a couple of questions for you.

    Camping...I'll be camping most of the way but am worried about finding most of them closed this early. Do you forsee a problem? Don't mind hitting private campgrounds which I would think would be open, correct?

    Also, I need electrical hookups. Do park service campgrounds have them or are they all primative sites? I assume the private campgrounds have electrical hookups.

    Anyway, thanks for your help and love the ride report. Can't wait to do it myself.

    Hi Dave. There should be 2 of the park campgrounds open:

    CAMPGROUNDS Open Close
    Linville Falls April 2 October 28
    Otter Creek April 6 October 28
    All Other Parkway Campgrounds May 11 October 28

    As far as I know none of the federal campgrounds have electricity at the camp sites. They have flush toilets, but no showers. If you need any other info just ask. Have fun!!!
