20 RV Parks near Piney Creek, North Carolina
Aug 2019 - $40.00
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

Park was small but great! Most all sites had open views of the River. Bath house was nice and clean. Fire pits were the only thing we had a problem with. These are holes in the ground, not marked or tagged or covered. It’s like an accident waiting to happen. It wouldn’t be nothing for a small child, or adult even, to not be paying attention and step in one. Worse even with hot coals. Ours was directly beside our camper. Took some maneuvering to get backed in without “falling in”. Then afterwards, it was too close for us to have a fire, as it was directly under the edge of the camper. Not all sites have this fire pit in the same location, so maybe another site would work better for us. Other than that, we LOVED THIS CAMPGROUND! Very clean and well kept lawns, sites are gravel and level. - Dawnbs

We stayed 5 nights in our 30' TT. We arrived as Hurricane Mathew was hitting NC. Campground is right beside New River T NC/VA boarder. Drive is a steep but short single car entrance. Office on right, you need to pull past it and turn right to park to check in. We were meet as we got out of care by owner or manager. Checking was quick, we had our choice of re sites because only few camper. It was rainy an owner advised backing in due to wet ground. Larger sites are in front of bathhouse, 30 yard from river. Sites have gravel pad but larger campers may have problems with tow vehicles having space. We used empty space beside us to park. Site do slope towards river and my require extra blocks in front.
Water and power only. Dump site near permit sites, may require some wait during busy times. Power was 30 amps and was stable. Water pressure fine. Tables and fire pits- no grills. Bath house is rustic but has instant hot water so does not run out. Lots are 50/50 shaded.
No wifi but Version was 2 bars LTE or 3G. Did not really check out store. They do have 4 primitive cabins to rent
After 1st night there were only 1-2 campers in campgrounds. It is a good base camp for day trips to Boone, West Jefferson, Galax...
I could see this place rocking hard in summer with younger folks rafting. I would not cal this a "Glamping" place but will come back again. - mj1angier

Beautiful river and mountain views. Showers were clean, and so was the porta potti. However it states "No Alcohol" and in fact it was allowed, numerous campers partying, drinking and being very loud in to the early morning hours. If its a good night sleeps you need, then look elsewhere. It also states "no pets under 15 lbs" when in fact there were dogs there over that limit. While the tent sites were nice and large, We found the campground not very family friendly, and poorly managed. We drove from Florida, over 500 miles, and will not stay there again. - crazyjag

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

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

Beautiful, very shaded campground. Things to note: Sites sit right alongside of the road that goes through the campground. Thus, you may have lights shining at night or if your picnic table is on the road side, vehicles are very close. Road up to CG is extremely twisty and or narrow much of the way. Little to no noise - very family and pet friendly. Lots of park rangers visible during our stay. Sites can be very small and nearly all are shaded/heavily shaded. There were alot of tent campers as well as TT, 5ers; not many class A. Nice camp store with a lot of fun things. - lkc4052

Stayed here 3 nights. Great trails and activities. Camp hosts were friendly and helpful. Great views and the wild ponies were great. My dog also enjoyed the trails. Site was not the most level. The fire ring was not in a great location for my rig (too close to the camper). - ShadyBill47

It would have gotten 5 stars but the pull up the mountain is long, steep and crooked. There were some really big rigs up there so it is very doable you just have to take your time and work your way up. The campground is an older state park with sites that can be a little challenging. We had one of the smaller pull thru sites and had to back out when we left because there were trees a little too close for comfort when you tried to make the turn back onto the camp road. It was a very easy back out though. That said the park and campground were very clean and well maintained. The trails and views are really great and there is a wild pony herd that roams the area. We had a very good trip and plan on returning in the near future. - LDW5707

The park is very clean, very peaceful and with only 20 campsites, 8 with 30 amp and water hookup. I gave the park an average rating because it has a serious electrical issue with the 30 amp sites. The park was built in the 60's and the electrical is in dire need of being upgraded. On different occasions mainly during the day with the AC running on the area that I was in the main breaker will trip. Myself and others in the area affected by the electrical powering 4 30 amp sites went without power on several occasions for several hours. An employee with the park came out to try and fix the issue and found that the main power supply to the sites affected was only putting out 60 amps just enough to power two 30 amp sites with four connected to the main supply line. The park as in the employee's words badly needs to have the electrical upgraded to avoid outages in the future. Overall the stay was very pleasant but having the electrical issue was very upsetting to deal with. - Pokeys1

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
