Reservable Facilities

The Daniel Boone Backpack Campsite is the only campsite that can be reserved in advance. The site is a primitive campsite restricted to one group of 6-12 campers. Camping fees apply.

All other campsites are walk-in only (first-come, first-served availability), with no camping fee at this time.

The campsite is located on the Daniel Boone Scout Trail, two miles from the Boone Fork Parking Lot off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Elevation gain to this site is approximately 1,000 feet. Directions to this parking area can be found here.

Reservations may be made as late as one day in advance. If the site is not reserved by midnight, the site is available for walk-ins for one night without the reservation fee. Reservations will be posted at the trailhead by 8:30am during peak season. Walk-ins must check in with the park office at 828-963-9522 or the kiosk at the Boone Fork parking lot for current reservations and must vacate the site by 2:00 pm if it is reserved for that night.

Camping permits are required, even with a reservation. Permits are located at the self-registration area near the Boone Fork Parking area.

Call 1-877-722-6762 or visit the reservations website to make reservations for the Daniel Boone Campsite.
