We stay here every summer, a couple weekends each month. We always love our stay here. There is plenty of activities close by. There is a playground for kids, clean showers, nice camp sites. The new owners of the marina have done great things. They have added a water park that most kids love. You can rent pontoons, kayaks at the marina also. Lake is kinda filled with drift wood, but most lakes are that didn't bother us. They could do a little better cleaning the boat loading ramp. Other then that, we will continue to stay at this campground for years to come. - Melissajase3714

This park is one of the most beautiful wooded parks I have ever been in, but getting here is pretty rough. The road is very curvy and mountainous with 3 hairpin turns. (We take a 35' TT up here). The upper campground has paved road with open sites (5 only) and a bath house with showers. The views here are amazing. The lower campground with 10 very spacious sites is completely wooded, therefore the views are not as good. Sites are not long, therefore there are only a few that large rigs can fit into. Electric only on the sites, but water is available for fill-up near the dump station in the lower campground. - MerryKalia

This is a nice campground, especially in the fall since it's located in the mountains and next to a reservoir where boating and fishing are readily accessible. The entrance is a little tricky since it goes downhill from the main road. We scraped our Class C jacks going in and out. A long Class A vehicle might have more trouble even approaching at an angle. The sites are nice. Some are paved and others are gravel. The restrooms are first class and very clean. Rt. 160 going east is quite crooked and somewhat narrow with a lot of large truck traffic. We had acceptable Verizon service and used our hotspot. We would rate the campground higher but our site was very littered with small paper, twisty ties, bottle caps and cigarette butts. The firepit was filthy also. We also noticed trash throughout the campground, which means that no one was picking up on a regular basis. All in all, a nice park and we would return if in the area. - Don & Jean G.

Campground is not well maintained. We noticed that vacated sites were not cleaned at anytime during our stay. Fire rings were filled with trash, not just wood ash, but filled with bottles, cans and food scraps. Campground rules are not enforced. Quiet hours mean nothing. This campground is a favorite with the locals. It's a shame the locals do not respect the campground. We have visited many COE campgrounds and had very good experiences. This COE campground was a major disappointment. - Paythebill

Our home base camp. Another excellent experience. Big lots with hookups on correct side. Clean bathrooms which the one on the hill is new. Patrolled regularly. - Deaton

There are multiple issues with this park and its campground. I was surprised when I entered and had to pay $2 to enter, even though I had already paid for and reserved a campsite. Second, the site was awful. It was really, really small, close to the road (and I have small children), and the turn to back the pop-up in was awkward, because it was uphill and curved. It was so small and hilly that we didn't have a spot for the onsite picnic table. Third, this is a busy campground. I'm not exaggerating when I say that there were cars driving around the loop every 5-10 minutes. With small children next to the road, it made it a very unrelaxing trip. Fourth, this seemed like less of a campground to enjoy nature and more of a campground for a party. Fourth, the quiet hour rules are not observed, at all. At midnight there were still cars driving around the loop with their brights on. There were people yelling, partying, and smoking. Someone got on a motorcycle, started it, and drove off at 12:23 AM. It was ridiculous. Fifth, the bathhouse was disgusting. The floor was flooded the whole time. Tiles were falling off the wall. In the showers, the handles were falling off and it looked like they just punched holes in the wall and pulled the pipes through. Sixth, to go anywhere else in the park, you have to drive. It'd be nice to have trails close by. Seventh, in every other Virginia state park I've stayed in, pool/lake passes have been given. That wasn't the case here. I had to pay $50 to take my family to the pool. The lady at the window had a bad attitude because she expected us to know how the armbands worked. Also, my son who is 7 and can swim fully and wasn't allowed on their biggest water slides, which are quite honestly super small. Our local pool has a bigger slide. All in all, a terrible experience. The only positives are the trails are good and you get great views and cool rock formations. I recommend visiting the trails, but only as a day trip. - Tyler Johnson

$2.00 entrance fee to park...$5.00 register fee for campground...$25.00 for the site which was water and electricity. Very small, unlevel site. There were many better sites that remained empty. Overall a dumpy campground. - tadpole1234

This was an interesting experience, staying at Breaks Interstate Park. There were many firsts. 1-I had to pay just to enter the park, regardless of the reservation I had or the window tag issued to me at the campground (this was a one time fee, though). 2-I reserved and paid for a site with water/electric and sewer, but got only a water/electric site. 3-The site (D-101), was terrible! It was literally a roadside pull-off that was just wide enough for my RV with the door being less than a foot off the road. My son and his friends stayed in a tent that was equally close to the road. The fire ring felt like a community fire since it was right beside the road. Small consolation, but there was a worse site (D-88), that was literally part of the kids' play place. 4-Every other Va. state park I stayed at (Pocahontas, Natural Tunnel, etc.) included the water park/pool. To swim at the pool/water park at Breaks was an additional 10 dollars per person. 5-I bought firewood at the camp store and it was so wet that I was unable to burn it. I ended up leaving it in the fire ring. 6-The men's bathhouse floor in the D campground was perpetually flooded. I'm not sure if the drain was backing up or where the water was coming from. I was told that they have to be self supporting so that may be the reason for the additional fees. It was a surprise to find out at camp, though. The camp is beautiful, with some amazing views. However, the most valuable part of this camp is its people! I don't have names unfortunately. The camp host at the D campground was great! He found us another spot to put a tent that wasn't on our campsite. We ended up not using it though. The camp superintendent was awesome! We had what turned out to be a minor medical emergency that required a trip to a hospital. He and the other park rangers were amazing! In addition to making sure that help was sent, they helped until the ambulance arrived. Once at the hospital, they came to pick us up from the hospital! - twright342

Once again this year nothing has been done to fix the problems at this place. If you in a bind and it don't rain and you don't need their bathroom you may be ok. Other than that the urinal I spoke of in 2016 is still covered. Too cold to use the showers, heat inside or water temp not good. They didn't even clean up the leaves and twigs from the winter. Had to rake my concrete pad to keep from tracking. Limbs need trimmed they are low and could hit you trailer. So much potential for this park if they would work on it a little. - Deaton

Another home base park. They have worked on some sites adding new fire pits and fixing the grounds. Some still need attention. Bathrooms still very dated bare concrete floors with no heat and urinal covered up. Nice peaceful park. Mostly big trees shading everywhere. Trails to lake for boating and fishing. Beach within walking distance. - Deaton

After a rain I had a choice between a lake and a mud hole. I chose the mud hole. There was only a paved strip for the camper. No grass, no gravel, no pad beside. When it rained it was a river both in front and beside the camper. I built a bridge to get to the bathroom. I brought gravel the second night to keep from tracking. Similar problems beside me. Neighbor had grass but was full of water and ended up a mud hole. Bathrooms are terrible. Bare concrete. One urinal not working. Showers have no locks. Water temp changes at random. Wear flip flops!! I know other sites are nice. They could fix the others. I'd be pressed to return because 5 miles up the road is much nicer. - Deaton

We stayed here on our way to Lexington. Due to all the mountains we were looking for someplace somewhat flat and this was a good choice. The park is located just off Hwy 23 with a slight hill and then you're there. The park is right by the ball field but is concrete pad and easy in and out. Gate is locked so only campers can get in. Nice flat site and easy access - rbrown5305

We stayed 3 nights, the 30 amp plug in was burned up did not work, the wifi did not work, cable tv did not work. The gated security gate, every one under the sun had the gate code and non renters entered the park and would park in the sites and roadway. The worst thing is the lengthy rules renters have to follow or get a ticket from the Pikeville Police Department but the city who makes the rules can break them by allowing the college and high school to have soccer practice at 5 am in the morning, blowing whistles and ball field lights as bright as the sun disrupting the RV Park renters. There was no peace and quiet at this park. I would not stay at this park again EVER!!! - Hatfield Family

We spent 3 nights here. This city campground is in Bob Amos Park which also has sport fields and picnic areas plus an excellent overlook of the city. It's less than a mile off US23 and all roads are paved as are the campground road and all the sites. The road to the park is steep but no trouble. All sites are FHU back in. Some are shorter than others and some have wide pavement for vehicle parking adjacent to the RV site. Ours (21) backed up to the soccer field so we could sit inside and watch 2 high school games one night under the lights. One RV park road turn was tight for our 37' fifth wheel but you're OK if you pay attention. The utilities worked well as did our rooftop dish. Verizon cell phone and hotspot worked well. The campground is gated and you are emailed rules with your confirmation which has the gate combo. There is no office or attendant. There is a phone by the gate if needed to call a city contact. Reservations are made on their website which has a map but no accurate detail of site sizes, a credit card is required. We used Google Earth to check the park out in advance. The park is very nice and well maintained as is the entire Bob Amos Park. There were 5 or 6 RVs in the 21 site campground while we were there. There is one loop with sites on both sides of the road. There was minimal road noise but there was a soccer practice one morning at 5:30 am. We'd return here. - big greg
