Blue Ridge Parkway
Flora and fauna
There is no fee to travel the Blue Ridge Parkway and entrances and exits are available at intersections with all major highways.
There is a charge for camping of $16 per site (2007) and those visitors with Golden Age or Golden Access Passports or the new Interagency Senior or Access Pass pay a reduced camping fee.
For organized activities such as sporting events, ceremonies or large group gatherings, a Special Use Permit may be necessary. Commercial Filming of any type also requires a permit.
Four lodges and six restaurants are scattered along the Parkway and most are open from late April through the fall color season.
Fee is $16 for all campgrounds.
