Outstanding campground. Stayed in the sites with water and electricity. Large sites and quiet at night (mid week). We will stay here again. With our N.C. senior discount it only cost us about $14.00 per night. We were in site 66. Nice hiking trails. Stone Mountain Country store on the way in to the campground has camping supplies and firewood at a good price. Our site had marginal Verizon service. The dump station area on the way out is OK and is better than many we have used. - wahooo

When we checked in, the guy checking us in told us that this was the best campground in all of North Carolina. It may have been a bit of hyperbole, but it is a very, very good campground. Sites in the B loop have electric and water, level asphalt parking pads, level gravel tent pads (that have been raked), and are very spacious. All of the B loop sites either back onto a forest or a creek. While we were there in late October, they were having hot water problems because of an early frost. Our site had a water leak, probably because of the same early frost. AT&T didn't work at all, and Verizon was hit and miss. We didn't have any OTA TV reception, but our satellite radio worked. Our site (59) was in full shade from the mountain for almost the entire day. We didn't get sun until about 5 pm. Earlier in the season, it would have more sun. We picked the campground because of its proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway, but the state park is a destination on its own. - AnnP

We just love this campground for all the wonderful trails, waterfalls, sliding rock and cool swimming holes. We reserved site #49 and it long enough for my 35' travel trailer, two F250 trucks and a minivan parked in front of it. The sites on the B-loop are EW and spaced apart. Some sites are new the creek that runs though the B-loop. NC State parks added an access road at the other end of the main campground road to allow after hours access only to the campground after the main park entrance is locked. - NC RV Travler

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

We had a brief two night stay in #12 which faces mature hardwoods and a cattle pasture in the distance. A very bucolic spot! Many spots do have a sewer connection but #12 does not.Watch the front-to-back elevation - the site is uphill a bit and I had to really lower the nose to get level. There is a dump station adjacent to the office across the road. We never heard any noise at night except for crickets and some strange bird or owl for a short time. The trail to Carter Falls is fairly easy until you get almost to the bottom where is gets sort of steep. Trash is picked up every day - just leave it outside. We were able to get about 8 or 10 digital TV stations just using the small antenna mounted on top of the trailer. WiFi signal looked strong although we did not use it. Very friendly owners and staff make this a family campground worth considering. - BensonW

This would be an excellent campground for visiting the area OR for a quick one night stop while on the road (which is what we did). The owner was so nice and helpful both on the phone and in person. The sites are amazingly level - it's a bit of an optical illusion, you think you'll need blocks then discover that you are zero bubble in both directions. The backin campsites on the creek are shaded and have really nice fire areas next to the creek. The pull throughs are perfect for a quick, no unhook, overnight stay. - Buddy Ray

This was our third time staying here. 12 site campground not too far from the highway. Very peaceful. We staying in site 11, which is pull through full hookup. Short hike to nearby waterfall and 1.5 mile hike to a winery. The owners are very friendly and always available. - tvolk

Rest rooms were beyond dirty and trashy. BYO paper! They allow little league teams to use the ball fields and they leave a major mess of things. Wife went to use showers and all the toilets were full of feces. The fee is cheap but No shade. Water/ electric / sewer was good. Will not return. Loose dogs everywhere. - Charlie Giles

This campground is along the Yadkin River. It was the old high school, but has been taken over by the local V.F.W. It is a year round campground and has suitable facilities for persons passing through or wish to stop for a longer period. It is primarily used for the annual "Merlefest" at Wilkes Community College. We stayed there for 3 days and greatly enjoyed the concert and all the musicians performing at the campground. The VFW hosts were very accommodating and eager to please, this is their main fundraiser for the year and they work really hard. They have primitive sites, partial and full hook-up sites, pet friendly and they even have breakfast service in the main hall to eat there or to go. The facilities are dated, but kept clean and well managed. They're are other local festivals in the area in addition to Merlefest and I would definitely consider staying there again. We have already reserved our sites for next year! This campground is not the KOA, but the gentlemen that run it are the best and make your stay very warm and welcome! - Mtncampers

This park is a resort with lots for sale and we stayed there as a prospective buyer. - Lynne Dollar

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

This is a very nice quiet park. Our site was level and sites are spaced well. Hookups were good. Owner was friendly and helpful. No pool, picnic tables or fire rings. Well maintained park convenient to Galax. My Verizon and Directv worked good. Wifi also worked well. I would have rated this park a 10 except for the lack of a pool or picnic table. We were here in a motorhome and would stay here again. - RayN

Second time staying here and was not disappointed. Grounds are well kept. Pull thru site on a Memorial day weekend. Excellent hook ups. Very clean and quiet. Used it as a base camp to visit Grayson Highlands State Park ( 1 hour away) and to do the Virginia Creeper-17 mile bike ride (1 .5 hour away). Also visited the thrift/consignment shop in Galax and picked up a few bargains! Love this area. - n2camping

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

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
