Where to camp on the Parkways?

My husband and I are considering two trips - one down the Natchez Trace, the other down the Blue Ridge Parkway. We want to take our time, read every sign, take every walkway.

Are there certain campgrounds that cater to the travelers of these parkways? Or, do you just guestimate where you will be on any given day and search for campgrounds within a reasonable distance? I think there may be a WBCCI caravan that does the Blue Ridge - perhaps if someone has taken that trip you could share which CGs you used?

Thank you!

The Blue Ridge Parkway is gorgeous. I did 3 trips there this summer, in fact just returned from there this week (leaves were gorgeous). The Parkway goes right through Shenandoah National Park. About midway through you'll encounter Big Meadows. They have a full campstore, gas/diesel, and a Visitors Center. The campground there is nicely setup. There is pretty good separation between spaces and you can reserve your spot online. I think 6 months out. There are NO hookups, but there is a convenient dump station about 1/4 mile from your campsite. Arrive with a full water tank, or schlep it from the many water spigots throughout the park. Sites are $20 a night. Generator hours are 8-10 am and 4-7pm in the summer. Evening hours are later after 15 October. There is a lot to see in the park....many wonderful hikes and just awesome scenery. You can do all the booking, etc. online.
