Since we are located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, cell phone service is NOT available in our area. Therefore navigation systems on cell phones will not be accessible.
If you are towing anything larger than a pop-up camper we recommend coming to Montebello via the Parkway. We are only 2.5 miles off the Parkway.
Route 56 West and East is a curvy road and it can be a little difficult climbing the mountain pulling a travel trailer or driving an RV.
Please do not rely on your GPS/OnStar or any automobile directional assistance once you are on the Blue Ridge Parkway or Route 56. These devices DO NOT provide accurate directions within 10 miles of our location.
Once you are on Route 56, stay on Route 56. There are no turn offs on Route 56 to get to Montebello.
If you are using online directions, please use Google Maps; Yahoo Map directions are inaccurate. Also, when you type in our location for directions, please use our name, Montebello Camping and Fishing Resort, Montebello, VA, and not our physical address because that is not accurate either.
We apologize for all of the confusion but since we are located on top of a mountain and fairly remote, these computer-generated maps and automobile directional assistance haven't gotten our exact location correct just yet. Below are also basic directions from major areas in Virginia.
