We decided to make a stop in Northwest Virginia to see Shenandoah National Park and more of the beautiful scenery that this area has to offer – including Harpers Ferry National Historical Park which isn’t far from this area and the amazing Luray Caverns. Lucky for us, we found the best little campground in the small town of Edinburg, VA. Creekside Campground is small and nestled down beside a small creek, right behind the charming little town of Edinburg.
Our camp site was right next to the creek, which allowed for a beautiful scene and a great place for the kid to play. I do caution that everyone where boots or tennis shoes because there were a lot of snakes. None of them we identified as venomous, but it is better to be safe than sorry. So with rain boots on over jeans, the kid had a blast playing by the creek, watching the ducks and throwing rocks.
The shower/bath house is clean and has hot water, which is wonderful when you’re camping (even if you have a shower in your RV)! The host/hostess are both wonderful and any questions we had they answered – even when I text them early the morning we were to leave to see if we could stay one more night (and they accommodated us)! They keep the campsite clean and quiet, and just made our stay wonderful.
The town of Edinburg offers a laundry mat and some great food options, from BBQ to Italian. And let’s talk about that Italian food – the best Alfredo I have ever had! So if it is raining and you can’t cook out, or you just need someone to cook for you, head over to Sal’s Italian Bistro on Main Street for some great food! The kid enjoyed the spaghetti with meatball, I devoured the Alfredo (seriously the best I have ever had) and Greg dove into a seafood pasta platter that looked like it would never end! We all ate like we’d never had food before and went home with the fullest tummies!
With Creekside Campground you’ll have beautiful scenery, great accommodations and very fair pricing! We would definitely recommend this campground to our RV/Camping friends and family. Not to mention the bonus of having a wonderful little town behind you with the best Italian food outside of Italy! So the next time you’re in Northwest Virginia, stop at Creekside Campground – play in the creek, eat some penne and then explore the beautiful mountains!

I am a mother and stepmother, fierce slayer of mental illness, writer and traveler. I love the constant change of the road, and the experiences it brings our family. We have learned so much being full-time RVers, and love the freedom this lifestyle gives us.
