Pretty nice. Not very shady around our spot, but it was cloudy. AT&T barely works. The Fishing pond is nice. There is also shuffleboard and a game room. - SomeRandomCamper

We stayed 3 nights in site #147, a long pull through gravel site which is mostly level but drops off toward the front a bit so I had to use extra pads on the front jacks. There was a picnic table and a fire pit on the site. This is a large CG with a LOT of permanent residence living there as well as repeat extended stay guest. It was very clean and peaceful. It is in a very rural area within walking distance of the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is a large fishing pond within the CG and a lot of grassy areas but no off leash dog walk areas. There are no trash receptacles in the CG, just dumpsters near the entrance. There is no trash pick up so you have to take your trash to the dumpsters. If you have pets, there are no pet waste receptacles either. Not very pet friendly. The bath house was clean and adequate with showers (did not use). There isn't much to do within the campground but walk around. No pool but they do have a shuffle board court. We are not inclined to return mostly because it is in such a remote area and they are not accommodating toward dog owners. - RoadEyePie

Transient campers beware - this is a seasonal campground. Two adults camped here for 5 nights in July 2019 in a travel trailer. My comments refer to the area around sites 37, 64 etc. Plus: In my area of transient camper sites, we had tall shady trees and spacious sites; other areas are in full sun. Some seasonal campgrounds are overloaded with children riding bicycles and lots of noise, but this was not the case here. The lake was lovely and while swimming was not allowed, it provided a nice catch and release opportunity. There were large mowed fields where children and golf carts could romp away. Minus: Though there were several nice points, two negative aspects overshadowed our experience and lowered the rating significantly. Both should be improved by management/owners. 1. Bathhouse in desperate need of a serious update. Though it was clean enough, shower dressing area was open, no privacy at all. Lighting was adequate/poor. Some chrome shower fixtures were rusted. I doubt that the owners would take a shower there. Men's toilet stalls did not have latches on doors. Really? 2. Wifi was non-existent on weekends unless you tried before 6am and after midnight; somewhat improved on weekdays. This was most frustrating, and I cannot imagine how the seasonals deal with that. Additionally, the office staff wasn't particularly friendly, giving the vibe that they didn't care if we were there or not. I don't think we would camp here again until we read reviews that these minuses are fixed. - LiveTheDream

This is a nice park and convenient. Not many open sites since most sites are being used by permanent campers. Utilities were very good. Our site was not level but we were able to lever using our jacks and no boards. :Park is clean and kept up well. Wifi worked well except at night when many people were on it. TV reception is poor with only a ferw channels available and we could not find any national channels except PBS. We would stay here again. - RayN

The sites are so unlevel that we couldn't get even close to level with our leveling jacks. Be sure to bring leveling blocks. We stayed two nights. The sites are long enough for our big rig and toad. The utilities are well placed and work well. There is no cable TV, and we could only get a few wothless channels on our antenna. The wifi is very good except in the evening when everyone is using it. Most of the sites are occupied by seasonal tenants who have trees. The short term sites are lined up in the center of the campground with no trees or landscaping. While the campground is located in a beautiful area, the campground itself is not very pretty. I doubt that I would stay here again mainly because of the unlevel sites. - FSUWizard

This Park is beautiful, the grounds are very well maintained, and so clean. There are beautiful walking trails. Native wildflowers are allowed to flourish in the green fields which in turn attracts hundreds of butterflies and the nightly show of firefly lights is spectacular. My husband and I visited for 10 days and loved the Park and the West Jefferson/New River area so much we opted for a seasonal site. The fee reflects the monthly rate which is actually lower. The seasonal sites are metered and we pay our own electric which is fine with me. Power is excellent 122 volts/60 hz. Since we are planning on being here seasonally, we had the sewer hard-piped by a very nice local plumber, and it is a blessing. The Park is situated on the slopes of Mount Jefferson which is so beautiful. The mountain views from our coach are incredible. The seasonal Park residents are friendly, everyone waves and stops for a chat. My family has been in the RV Park business for decades and from my own experience I will say that this is the best Campground/RV Park we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The owners and managers are friendly and every detail is attended to. There are also planned activities to enjoy. By the way, this is my first RV Park review and we could not be happier. - Amy Griffith

The New River 12 years earlier was saved from being damned up, and instead designated as a State Scenic River keeping the River wild and natural. There is hiking and river canoeing and kayaking. The park has a large nice wooded ecological teaching center with exhibits and a ranger station in a very nice brown wooden building with a covered walkway around it overlooking the hill side into the forest. The campground has paved loop road with 20 large and wide mostly level packed gravel sites, varying with E and full hookups. Two paved handicapped sites by nice modern clean bathhouse with hot showers. Sites have mowed grass and wild plants between, and the whole park is very well kept. It is Hilly. A hiking path leads down to the river some distance away. No play grounds. A nice get away park. - 210jem

Arrived in torrential rain, after dark, and after hours. I called ahead and Park personnel waited for me and then helped me get in my site. Beautiful park in a wonderful area. - HokieDon

So quiet and peaceful. Only 20 spots, and only some have full hookups. Others have just electricity. - TimO

One you come here you won't stop coming here! Twin Rivers is a beautiful campground. Although the cell phone service is little to none, and there is limited wifi, the things to do are endless! You can kayak, tube, bike, or walk down to where the south and north fork of the new river meet! We have been many times and will continue to go!
The view that you get at any of the sites are breathtaking and never get old. This campground is very family friendly. The staff is wonderful!!! - Kaylee1

Right on the river. Great place to tent camp. Bring tubes (for the river). Lots offer some shade. Sites are grass and feature a picnic table. - Zomb

Twin Rivers is just awesome for families, for relaxing and enjoying nature. The river is great for canoeing, kayaking, tubing, wading and fishing. Perfect for kids. Full on weekends, quiet and peaceful on weekdays. The managers are fantastic folks and go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and comfortable. - marshavon

This place should be condemned. $10.00 was too much to pay. The first thing was the owner only accepted cash. Second the electric did not work, the owner had to do a rig job from the 50 amp to hook up for 30 amp and later I visualized that the electric situation around the grounds seem very shoddy too. Third the next morning when I walked to use the campground restroom it was permanently locked with junk around the building and in front of the doorway. Fourth the trash cans near my site were either full or partially full and smelled strong of decaying garbage. This was definitely the worst RV Campground I've ever seen especially for being charged $40. - Bogramps

This campground is located in a beautiful pristine area of NC, on the New River. It is a vacation place, not for passers-by. One needs to stay and decompress for a few days. The campground is grassy, shaded by tall trees, with sufficient space between sites. Occasional wildlife, such as deer jumping in the water, can be seen. It is overall very peaceful. The owner and staff are very helpful and accommodating. There is a store as well as the possibility to go for tubing or other river activities, with available equipment. We stayed in a class A motorhome for 3 weeks, left for one and came back for another 3 weeks. We appreciated that they gave us the site that we had and liked the first time. Even though it wasn't a shaded site, the climate is so mild that we had to cover at night. It was so nice we didn't want to leave ! PA rates for 5 days / week (the nightly rate above), long term. OK bathhouse, no laundry facility, reasonable wifi & verizon. - AandWK

Campground is in a beautiful setting right on the New River. The pull-through sites are grass with some holes and lumps in the site. It didn't take much effort to move slightly to find a level spot. The back-in sites are grass and gravel. The utilities are good. We arrived just after they opened for the season so things were still in progress.
Campground is close to Jefferson NC for shopping and Lowes. We arrived from the Blue Ridge Pkwy.
Showers were installed well but hadn't been cleaned as yet.
Kayak rentals are available for river use. WiFi is good, no AT&T service. - Nautilus

If you are willing to boondock, the NPS campground on the Blue Ridge Parkway is a good bet for you. The campground has a few "reserve ahead" sites and a few first come, first served sites. We were there at the start of the long July 4 weekend, and did not have a problem finding a site. About half of the sites were in use. Our site was mostly level, and easy to back into. The camp host was very helpful. There is a 1 mile (each way) hike from the campground through woods and meadows to the Beringer Cabin. There is a much shorter (though less interesting) drive to the cabin. - ShoreXplorers

Absolutely gorgeous country. Heavily forested. Verdant green, rolling hills, picturesque farms and valleys wherever you look. Silent: no road noise, no trains. Colder than we realized in May: thunder, hail and rain showers.
Typical older NPS campground. Only A loop has sites big enough for RVs, only two were close to our size, 43'. (B and C loops were closed and might not open this year according to the host).
No hookups, no showers. Water is available and there is a dump station. The sites are narrow but not close together, narrow roads are paved. No AT&T or OTA TV, told Verizon works fine.
Lots of ticks in the woods, so inspect dogs and people constantly. - bobcovey

This is one of the old-fashioned National Park campgrounds that seems like it was created around the time that the Blue Ridge Parkway was built after the Great Depression. The roads and the campsites are narrow with no overflow parking, which means you must be able to fit your entire camping rig in the length of the driveway. It is beautiful, it is quiet (unless your neighbors are running a generator), and there are lovely places to hike. There was some cell phone voice and data coverage and a campground host. Some of the sites are reservable, while others are not. We were able to fit our 30' fifth wheel in a larger pull-through spot by backing into it. However, many of the sites would not accommodate our size or our slides. After a glass of wine and a beer, it was a beautiful place to stay and listen to the birds. There are not many services, but for $19/night it was worth it. - JBick

Very nice, somewhat rustic CG. Open main area with 10 RV sites, and several tent sites. 20, 30, and 50 amp service at RV sites. No water or sewer at RV sites. Fill up your camper's freshwater tank at the bath house on arrival (they supply blue hose), and there is a dump station for when you leave. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Firewood is $10 per large bundle, as you can't bring your own. He brings it to your site. There are numerous hiking trail. Elevation is 3,800 ft., so this would be a nice summer CG. - Ken H.

What a gem! One of those places you kinda' don't WANT to review, because you'd rather keep it quiet!
It's a treacherous drive up the last mile or so to get to the campground. It's basically a one lane steep, windy, gravel and dirt road with very few opportunities to move out of the way of another vehicle. But.... if you're willing to do that, the payoff is so worth it! Just DON'T miss the left turn into the campground and go too far.... it'll be tough to get back there!
The one ONLY other downside is that there are no water hookups at the sites.... but the staff will help you fill up on the way in and then if you run out, they will assist with helping to run hoses to you for refilling. Obviously there's also no sewer hookups.... but they will arrange pump out service.... it's $40.... so choose wisely!
The campground is VERY tenter heavy and GREAT for hiking. The weekends are FULL.... but it's so spacious etc that the only real downside was that the shower house had pretty long lines with all those tenters on the weekend days. The bath house is immaculate as is the rest of the property!
It's like sleeping in the clouds.....literally on SOME days! It was just spectacular though! Mountains all around.... warm summer breezes and cool nights! AMAZING escape from the heat and humidity of Florida! And we saw lightning bugs, chipmunks and even a hummingbird! Very cool! - doggpurr

When we arrived I found out that due to my negligence I did not notice when booking that the campsites did not have water a each site. Only electricity. Our camper has never had the fresh water tanks filled so we were not going to take a chance on contamination or it having leaks. The owners were very nice and understood my decision to cancel the reservation. They still charged me the cancellation fee but that was to be expected and I did not argue as it was my fault. On another note!! Please be advised that this campground name has mountain in it. That being said we were pulling a 32 ft trailer with our F250 and it was a struggle to get it up to the campground. Once you get off the highway from Boone the road is gravel up to Blue Bear CG. One other word of caution. Do not miss the turn as there is no sign that tells you the turn off goes to your campground. You have to know the road name and be watching for it diligently. The second we realized we missed the turn it was too late and drove 3 miles looking for a place to turn around on this narrow two lane road. I finally gave up and stopped in the middle of the road and backed up on to a side road to turn around. They could use a sign just before the turn if it was permissible. I'm sure it would have been a pleasant stay if you did not need the convenience of water on your site. - Bill from Texas

Very nice park. No cell or wifi. Nice night over, but we would not make it a destination park. When we arrived just after a series of torrential rains all loops were closed but one. For a night over it was just fine. - garmp

COE Pk at W. Kerr Scott Lake This is a very nice, clean, quiet park during the week, busy on weekends. Sites are backin, w/e only, very roomy, clean bathrooms. We were across from bathhouse on # 11 & did use them a few times. There is a lake, boat launch & beach. Rate is $24. per night but with the NP Senior pass we pd $12. per nt. Stayed here for a week July 23rd - 30th. - 2GermanAmericans

Clean park. LOTS of shade. Stayed at site 29 in a small motorohome. Site was *not level* has to use all of my blocks to get close enough to level to run the fridge. Nice big site though and plenty of room between rig and fire ring. Some of the sites in this park are back in, up a hill with difficult angles. Pretty though. Clean modern bathhouse with good water pressure and temp. Firewood is not prebundled , you have to measure it yourself in a $5, $10, $15 stacker and then pay and load into your rig. With some of the sites being so difficult to get into and requiring work to get level, it would be nice if they mentioned firewood at checkin so you can get some on the way in. Oh well, now we know. Clean and dry though, burned good. Just 2 trails that we know of, small swim beach that wasn't open yet, Frisbee golf, boat ramp. Good Verizon signal. Dump site is in the gravel lot near the gatehouse with firewood and dumpsters- no sign. dump hole is about 9 inches across, make sure you don't lose your hose or a small child/pet! We would stay here again if in the area. - Little Slow Domicile
