Blue Ridge Parkway campground to be open, for now

ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - The National Park Service wants to convert a little-used campground along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia to a daytime recreation area.


But the park service doesn't have funding to implement the conversion. That means the Roanoke Mountain Campground will remain as a campground until Congress appropriates funding to implement the change.


The park service estimates the conversion would cost nearly $3 million.


The  campground's conversion is part of the park service's 25-year management plan for the parkway.


Roanoke Mountain is the least-used of the parkway's nine campgrounds.
