We've been to Loft Mtn twice and I can't add much but this....
The campground tends to be busier on weekends.
Mid week in mid October might be nice and quiet or not because we've
never gone when the trees were turning colors.
In June mid week would be very NOT crowded!
Even if you are on a generator free loop the loop next to you might allow
generators but we've not found them to be a problem so far.
Don't know why anyone would want a generator in October but some
folks do seem to run them "just because they can".
IMO the bathroom vent fans make more noise than some generators.
We also give this camp ground a big thumbs up.
One more activity-- star gazing from the front not-used loop is awesome!
Bring a star map and point out some constellations to your kids!!
If you have kids a visit to the visitor center at Big Meadows is mandatory.
There are many things to see and do there.
