This campsite is designated for one group of seven to 12 campers and will be available by reservation for a fee of $24 per night.

 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 8:30 a.m. 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 noon if it is reserved for that night.

This is the only site available by reservation.  All other sites are walk-in only, with no camping fee at this time.

The Daniel Boone Campsite is located on the Daniel Boone Scout Trail, two miles from the Boone Fork Parking Lot on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is a primitive, backpack campsite for one group of seven to 12 campers.
