Biker,
My store is just about 25 miles from Roanoke or around 15 where the Blue Ridge Parkway crosses Rt. 460. Come on by!!

There are some Campgrounds on the Parkway, but at the Peaks of Otter, I doubt you could get a 40' in. Otter Creek could probably hold you in a couple of spaces. If you have a generator, you could stay overnight at my place or the Visitor Center just 4 miles down the road from me. They have hookups, but not sure what they charge. I can find out if your interested.

Re: campgrounds

There are a few campgrounds around, but not close in Bedford. The Visitor Center would let you stay a week and they have full hook ups.

Near Roanoke you have the Dixie Cavern Campground. They are right off I-81, but not the best of places.

Closer in Roanoke, but actually Salem, there is Salem Village Campground. They have a lot of permanents but keep it clean. I don't know if they do short term or not.

There is a new Campground near Smith Mountain Lake, but you would have about a 30 min. drive into Roanoke.

Biker,
The Welcome Center has their number on Facebook, so I hope they don't mind me posting it here....

540-587-5681

They have some interesting items in the center, but mainly just spaces there. The D-Day Memorial is right behind the center and there is a lot around here.

Re: campgrounds

Neal - While you are in the area are you going to ride the Tail of the Dragon? I'm looking forward to it after the Meet & Greet in October. Hope the weather stays nice.

Re: campgrounds

Well, with the Meet & Greet being the 7th, 8th and 9th of October, I hope to ride the Dragon on the 10th, then head out to Florida on the 11th. From looking at the map, I think that's do-able. I sure hope so.
