Visitors to Blowing Springs Campground will be amazed by the phenomenon for which this site is named. A unique geological feature creates a duct that blows air out of the rocks at a constant 58 degrees, which may feel warm or cool depending on the season.

Located just off of Virginia Highway 39, this area offers a variety of camping situations. The lower portion of the campground is a mostly open grassy field with plenty of room to spread out. The upper area is small tent sites in a wooded setting.

Back Creek, which runs along one side of the campground, offers good fishing and plenty of swimming holes to cool down in on hot summer days.

 The campground has vault toilets and a hand pump for water. There is also a dump station for recreational vehicles.
