  • We visited on December 31st and we were surprised by the number of people there. Although the office near the entrance was closed, the bathrooms were opened and we're very clean - and warm! Of course,...  more »

  • Went there with my sister during the fall - and it snowed! Best hiking, amazing views, and cute, chubby ponies!!!! Highly suggested no matter the time of year. It would have been cool to backpack part of it!
  • We have been emailed respectively in return and look forward to camping and hiking the area with the kids and our pets. Mt Rogers and the balds look like a beautiful place!
  • Great rv lots that feel secluded and yet have easy access. Gift shops are reasonably priced in a pinch. There are great sight seeing ops here with great scenic drives all around.
  • Beautiful park! Trails are nice and well marked. Really enjoyed seeing the ponies, got some great pictures. But please use caution, they are very friendly and cute, but remember they are not pets, and can bite and kick. When we were there the stallions were fighting and some of the spectators were way to close, some with small children. Please obey posted signs so that everyone stays safe and we can continue to enjoy the beautiful ponies for many years.
  • I usually go for hiking and it's a great place to start a day hike or an overnight. The store and office are well stocked and the rangers are fantastic.
