That's correct, I got a lifetime pass when I turned 62. I think it was about $15 4 years ago. Not sure how much it is now and you have to be 62.

You can do it but as stated some access roads are not big rig friendly. Also some of the park campgrounds are not 43 foot big rig friendly either. I drove and stayed at quite a few places on the parkway with my 36 footer, wasn't towing a car. I have not done it with my 40 footer. Now I summer fulltime in my coach in a Class A resort located a mile from the parkway where it crosses the Va/NC state line and because of that I am on it most every day, hiking or driving somewhere. The wife and I love the Blue Ridge.

October 2015, I was Northbound in the Siesta, 2 tour buses passed me heading South above Grandfather mountain. I was surprised because leaf peepers were out in force.

I like to zip around the curves on two wheels.... buses and MHs always get my attention.
