It's Virginia. Winter is not necessarily snow drifts and freezing temperatures. We often have delightful weather in December, January and February. Have you been disappointed in the past that most of our campgrounds are closed during those months? Most but not all ….
DCR Deputy Director for Operations Joe Elton talks to a winter camper at New River Trail State Park. Both the Millrace Campground at Foster Falls and the Cliffview Campground in Galax
are open year round.
Three parks with developed campgrounds have full service camping available. Visit New River Trail state parks.
Our customer service center is available Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed state holidays) to help you find a camping experience in the winter or any time. We accept reservations up to eleven months in advance and even on the day of arrival until 2 p.m. (as long as it is Monday to Friday). You can also book on line for most of our sites (False Cape campers must book through the Customer Service Center) and also book up to 2 p.m. the day of arrival for camping.
Before heading out for a winter park visit, check the park's individual web page. We will post if weather issues have forced us to close the park.
