Blue Ridge Parkway Doughton Park Campground

Doughton Park is a landscape of mountains, open meadows and pioneer cabins, 30 miles (48 km) of hiking trails and a place to view wildlife and get a feel for the lives of those who lived here long ago. Originally known as the Bluffs, this area is now named in honor of Congressman Robert L. Doughton, long-time advocate and supporter of the Parkway. The 7,000-acre (.4 ha) Doughton Park is one of the best places along the motor-road to view white-tailed deer, raccoons, red and grey foxes, bobcats, and spectacular shows of flame azalea and rhododendron in the late spring.
