View Full Version : Can I re-supply at Loft Mountain Campground

The guide book shows Loft Mt. Campground closing on 10/26/13. I will be there on 10/23/13, or thereabouts. Can I depend on being able to get supplies there or will the store be winding down inventory preparing for the shutdown? I'd rather not carry 6 days of supplies from Waynesboro if I can get out of it. Thanks.

The store part of Loft Mountain doesn't close until November 3rd, so that's positive. I tried calling Loft Mountain, but of course humans don't answer the phone. I left a message asking about grocery availability for AT hikers. Hopefully they call back!

Just kidding! The campstore closes Oct 27. I got confused on the SNP website. A lady called me back and said you should be able to get what you need when you show up.

I'd be cautious about what they will have in stock at that late date. Recognize that whatever they don't sell when they close has to either be kept in inventory until next year or shipped somewhere else to be sold. I'm sure they have incentives to clear the shelves.

You might try calling the store to see if they would hold a resupply box for you.

You have the fallback of hitching into Elkton at quite ironically the 911 mile mark.
