We are also heading this direction. In Pennsylvania and heading south. Can some tell me - is mile 1 at the north end? We are in a 35 foot class A are we going to be able to access the stare parks?

Milepost 1 of the Blue Ridge Parkway is at the north end starting at the top of Afton Mountain just off of I64 in Virginia near Waynesboro Virginia. It begins where Skyline Drive ends.

Here is a link to the listing of Virginia State Parks. http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/find-a-park.shtml

Most of the Virginia State Parks will accommodate a 35 foot RV but not all. Put in your length when you search the parks you are interested and check availability. We are currently camp hosts at Pocahontas State Park near Richmond Virginia in Chesterfield County where there are ample large 50 amp sites but still filling up on the weekends. There are no walk ins available so reservations are required. Reservations are made via Reserveamerica.com.

OOPS. I think I misread your question regarding access. I saw state parks in your question but it looks like a typo and you are probably interested in the Federal Parks campgrounds and access. The campgrounds along the Blue Ridge Parkway in my experience have limited space for large RVs this time of year however there always seems to be something nearby if not on the parkway.

Skyline Drive is part of the national parks system and there is an entrance fee unless you have one of the federal park passes. Love the BRP especially the parts that are open in winter.

Best I recollect, virtually all the tunnels are arches which could get really tricky, really fast on the right side. There are a couple on the south end, near Cherokee NC that are 10-11 feet (minimum height)
