Camping on Skyline drive is plentiful. On the Blue Ridge Parkway not so much. Services are scarce on the BRP. You often need to leave the parkway which in many cases means a extremely steep descent and a tough climb back up in the morning.

The riding is very nice on both, but be extremely careful in the fog.
