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

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

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

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
Nov 2017 - $35.00
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

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

Very tight sites. Not really laid out for big rigs longer than 36ft. Terrain is very hilly. Gravel on roadway and sites. Nice area and staff are very friendly and helpful. No cable, very poor WiFi and poor cell reception. The location is great anchor point for day trips and helps one get over the tight cramped sites. Few sites offer open sky for satellite dish. - HarrisandLynn

Pretty scenery, but our site does not have enough room for our truck. Our 34 foot just fits. Staff was not as helpful as some other places but friendly enough. My highlight is the goats. They’re my favorite animal and they are so cute! We get Verizon 2-3 bars and WiFi is slow but works. - Danette S

Site I used was very unlevel and not maintained well. Far from what I have grown to expect at a KOA. The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful. The wifi is good. TV is nonexistent as there is no cable and antenna TV barely works. - Tina and Pete Collins
Sep 2019 - $30.00
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

We will camp here again. Start with 10, then -1 poor in campground signage, -1 poor campground roads, -1 poorly marked sites, -1 poorly marked/oddly spaced hookups, -1 web site says wi-fi, but only available at camp store, -1 bathhouse 1/4 mile from trailer camp, -1 too few showers/toilets,-1 wi-fi signal not dependable-tested .3 down, .1 up (megs) when working. +1 no night lighting in trailer camp. This is a unique campground. Beautiful night sky set on a wooded ridge and renting bikes @ $15 to ride trail. Very laid back guy around the store (managing or running is too strong). They prefer cash. Plenty of hot water for returning Creeper Trail riders. 6 of us rode trail while the 7th took our truck into town to return riders and bikes. Campground has bikes on demand for $15. Roads to camp are good. Roads in camp are poor and steep and narrow and begging for grading and stone. Sewer connections very difficult to find as grass grows over them. I found 3 sites with WES, there may be more. About 10 are WE. Hook up services good. Dump site is on the ridge, too. Sites are not assigned-pick your own. There is no check in procedure and no rules sheet. First priority is growing Christmas Trees. 2nd is tent camping near the store for lots of Boy Scouts and youth groups riding the trail. Third priority is trailer camping which is 1/4 mile away from camp store and tents. We did not see big rigs. Road layout allows always driving forward so if a big rig can handle the roads and hills, the campground can handle the rig. - Frank Rader

This campground is located on the trail head of the Virginia Creeper (rails-to-trails) near the top of the mountain (3500'+ elev.). Getting there challenged our GPS as we ended up missing a critical turn and found ourselves towing our fifth wheel up a gravel, one-lane road across the ridge. Without 4-wheel drive we would not have made it. If the GPS liked us, we would have been on paved road all the way to the campground. The campground is rustic in nature and our site was on a newly cut of mountain. It overlooked the office. Check in and VERY friendly and easy - the owner is a nice, older guy. Our site was a pull through with water and electricity (thought it was 30 amp but the breakers were only 20 amps). Water pressure was low but of good quality. The site stills needs a 'finish' grade to get it more level (needed a LOT of planks to get the fiver level). It hadn't been mowed in some time making our site more of a field. The view was very nice. We were one of two campers in the whole place. So the night was very quiet and the stars were out in full force. Used the fire ring for S'mores. Leaving the next day, the exit road was very rutty and it was a slow go. Overall, this campground is perfectly placed for Virginia Creeping. It's not really close to anything else, so pack in whatever you need. The campground need some TLC and grooming but it will do for a night. Little pricey at $35.00/nite but there's no close competition so c'est la vie. - Owlet

Office is a hoarders dream, smells awful. I spent $10 drying one load of clothes. One of our neighbors left and had some good wood that they gave us and before we could get out to get it the manager was already at the lot loading it in her van after they left to sell to other campers. If you stay for an extended time be sure to keep your receipts as proof of payment. The checks or payments are placed among the office mess and the books are not kept well. WiFi Sucks!!! - Wonder Woman

Close to Boone. Small, older campground. Independent operator. They don’t take credit cards so bring cash or check. Extra $3/day for any person more than two. Owner was friendly and helpful, lives onsite. We were here during a snowstorm and had no problems. Will check it out again next time we are in the area. - TimO

Small, quiet park in Vilas, NC and 7 mi outside of Boone. No cable but wi-fi is the best we have ever had in a park and it allowed us to stream TV easily. My husband used the laundry room and said it was clean and well maintained. This is a no frills park but it is a great price for FHU 50 amp and great wi-fi. Sprint cell service was good in this area. Open Year around. Our site was a bit of a challenge to level but we got it. Owner is very helpful and accommodating. Monthly guests pay for their electricity separately at the end of the month. We stayed in a back in site with our 39ft 5th wheel toy hauler long term guest. There are a number of guests who are full time and work nearby. Office is cluttered and smells of fertilizer or something but you don't have to go in often. We did not buy anything in the camp store. - Joulesanne
