Not much to choose from in the immediate area. We stayed at Charlottesville KOA about 10 miles away. Good spacious sites in the woods but not very close to anything.

Monticello camping

If you are talking about Monticello, UT check out Devils Canyon CG about 12 mi. south on highway 121. About half way between Monticello and Blanding. It's a forest service CG with no hookups but very pleasant with nice sites.

Being from Charlottesville, VA I am assuming you mean THE Monticello, the home of Mr. Jefferson.

The Charlottesville KOA is a "good" KOA and you are several miles from anything that resembles hustle and bustle. You will have cell service on AT&T but may have to find a spot in the campground to pick up Verizon. I travel on the road it's on a couple of times a month for work and always hit dead spots where I have NO coverage from either provider.

Misty mountain camp resort virginia camping, waltons mountain, is about 25 minutes away from Monticello and about 5-10 miles away from the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive. It is also right in the thick of the BrewRidgeTrail.com | Brew Ridge Trail. You can even get a limo to take you to the breweries! http://brewridgetrail.com/wp-content...-Jan.-2013.pdf

There are other campgrounds just north of Charlottesville and there are more to the west as well if you want to stay in the Shenandoah Valley. There is a little primitive campground just south of Charlottesville, across the James River in Buckingham County - Horseshoe Flats Camping - Virginia Is For Lovers - this campground is walking distance to the little Town of Scottsville...this is where John Boy Walton used to go to let it all hang out at the Dew Drop Inn. The Dew Drop Inn closed down a few years ago, but there are great restaurants on the street where it used to be and that area is walking distance to the campground.

PM me if you have specific questions about the area.

Enjoy!

We live close to that area and would suggest Misty Mountain.

Each to his own but do not like Misty Mountain. And the KOA is really pricey and heavily treed. No really nice campgrounds in that area. Monticello is a great place to visit. Also stop at Michey Taveren for a meal.

X2 on Michie Tavern. I suggest an early lunch on the way to Monticello to beat the crowds and then walk off the lunch around Jefferson's home. RV parking at both locations.

I would recommend the KOA. Last trip there, I spent an enjoyable 30-45 minutes at each sunset watching the family of beavers on the pond.

Use caution on the drive in to the facility. Very narrow. We stayed at the KOA. It was ok BUT DO NOT FOLLOW GPS DIRECTIONS. - use theirs or you might find yourself on some crummy narrow roads and an underpass marked 11" and change...

Enroute, look up Green Valley BookFair. If it open, stop if you like books! Of course depending on your route .
