Big Meadows Lodge

Spoil yourself with good food, live entertainment and charming accommodations inside the park at historic Big Meadows Lodge. Unwind and enjoy the spectacular views from main lodge rooms, cozy cabins and rooms in multi-unit buildings located within a short walking distance of the main lodge.

In the main lodge you will find 27 rooms, a full service restaurant, gift shop, taproom with free family-friendly nightly entertainment, mail drop, and public restrooms. The National Park Service amphitheater is located at the campground with scheduled ranger programs held in season.  The Byrd Visitor Center is located one mile from the main lodge along with a wayside with the only gas station inside the park.

Big Meadows Lodge  is open mid-May through early November and is located at mile 51 on Skyline Drive.

There’s so much to see!
