Overnight camping has finally arrived at Explore Park! Throughout the season, we'll be opening dozens of new sites all over the park. Please be aware that our bath house will not be complete until October 2018. All sites are currently served by portable toilets. On season rates apply April through November, and off season is December through March. Why Explore Park? We're located directly adjacent to the Blue Ridge Parkway, but only 15 minutes from downtown Roanoke's shopping and dining scene. Plus take advantage of amenities like 14 miles of hiking trails and one of Virginia's top ranked disc golf courses.
