A major, mechanical break-down on I-77 turned us into temporary full-time residents at the Carrollwood RV Park, waiting for a new axle and related parts. Their weekly rate is $108 with a monthly rate of $300 (plus tax).
The CG is a grassy, hill-side knoll with back-in, pull-thru, and tent sites but none of them are very long. The CG was built back in the days when a "big rig" was a 30' travel trailer. Parking our 40' fiver was tricky. Big coaches and Prevosts need not bother. Sites are uneven grass, not very level, varying from basic, no utilities, up to FHU-30/50. Lots of tall, old growth trees and narrow, gravel-and-dirt roads in the park. Asphalt roads from the entrance to the office. There are cabins for rent. Office is usually closed but there is a phone number to the camp host. Office has some soft-drinks and snacks and a few RVing necessities. Two ponds offer fisherpersons their happy time. No pool/spa or other amenities. A very old, open-air barn is rented out for parties, weddings, and the like. I inspected the men's restroom/showers and would not use them. Ex-laundry room is now a storage locker. - StephenK

This was our first time in our new Montana and the first time in an RV camp ground. Has the nicest and most helpful owners. He guided us to our level site and helped with the hook ups. It is a quiet, beautiful and peaceful area. We would return. - Frances Ann

This park was cooler than the other areas we visited in the east. Lots of nice pine trees. Very tight narrow turn by office to get to sites. Big rigs and motor homes with toads would have great difficulty. We had to back up a few times to get into that narrow road. Not much room to swing around to get in straight. The park has NO water pressure. You would have trouble taking a shower or doing anything with water. Mentioned to office lady and she said they had 35 pounds of water pressure. Most RV parks have more than that! All we got was a very small stream out of the faucets. - dustytuu

Stayed here while traveling the blue ridge parkway. Hosts were incredibly nice and provided me with options for hiking on the property and dinner and entertainment during my stay. I would stay here again in a second. My favorite campground on the parkway, hands down!
I don’t remember the exact price as I prepaid when I made the reservation. - Hmssoccer

What a fabulous place! We used a pull through site for overnight and would love to have stayed longer. Hosts were super helpful and friendly. Everything was just as it is shown and works great. scenery is awesome! Very well maintained and managed. - DeanaB

We really enjoyed the time spent here for our 5 day stay. Having our grandson, made for an enjoyable time while also enjoying the water slides, arcade, swimming pool, putt putt course. There was much more to do here as well. I would recommend this RV resort to anyone wanting a very family friendly atmosphere for a great affordable price! - Todds

Although this is a nice park with game room and pool, it was too far off interstate for us. It was well off the beaten path if just looking for a quick on and off type stay. Otherwise it is nice park and they gave the PA discount. Downside is that if you have your own golf cart, you cannot use it. They require you to rent from them. They charge $60/day with two day minimum. Not really fair. They do have a nice game room for kids as well as nice pool that includes tunnel slides. Although it is located in a rolling hill campground, note that getting there requires a steep downgrade at some point. The downgrade is not very long but does require steep "upgrade" going back. We would return again. - WVnewbee

Nice setting with all the amenities: pools, mini golf, game room, laundry, etc., but minimally maintained. Not as nice as the photos.
Kids everywhere. Park is used as a field trip destination for local daycares and schools. - WendyJayne

50 Amp, FHU, pull through site. Open field on the top of a hill. Very nice views all around. Several OTA TV signals and our WIFI hotspots worked well here even though the park has WIFI. Our only problem was that the office folks had us down for the wrong day on our reservation and since the office was closed from 12-3 pm we had to wait 1&1/2 hours until they returned to rectify the situation. Other than that it is a very nice stop along I-77. Cash price is $30, credit card $32 + change. - Bob & Stephanie

Very nice managers and helpful also. Good WIFI. Sites are medium size. my 27' trailer plus Tow vehicle fit without unhooking. Had to use level blocks, site not level. At $32 a good value. - Tina and Pete Collins

Yes, there is a steep road into the park, but it's straight and no worse than some of the climbs on the interstate. Paved roads are narrow, but there are no trees or other obstacles on either side. We were able to negotiate with 43 ft motorhome and toad. Pull through sites are terraced into the hillside, so the last step out of the RV was a big one, and I had to duck lower down under my slide to get to my wet bay on the uphill side. Sewer connection was up hill a bit, so had to take care to drain the sewer hose. Not the best circumstances, but doable in a big rig. Pretty area right next to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Some sites had a nice view, ours did not. Woman in the office could use an attitude adjustment, we thought. Sign said small pets, leased, attended, and quiet, but a permanent/seasonal resident across from us left her barking dog tied up outside and unsupervised while she drove off, so no enforcement. Dog barked constantly until she returned. - TourCrazy

Very nice campground. Grounds well kept with potted plants well placed. Sites were well shaded and plenty big for our 40' 5th wheel. Internet was excellent. Staff were friendly, very helpful and overall excellent. We stayed in pull through site #22. We making our plans to return next year. There is a lot to do around Fancy Gap. - Peg N

There are three nightly rates, $6 no hook up, $12 electric, $16 water & electric - we used an America the Beautiful pass but did not get 50% off, don't know why. - Broda2675

This campground is in the woods, with deep woods silence and lovely natural surroundings. Our site was spacious, with good spacing to the adjoining sites. The parking pad was paved, with stone in the surrounding areas. It was easy to back into our site and it was perfectly. level. Rest rooms were very basic and minimally acceptably clean, but needed some TLC and upgrading. It is easy to get to the park - good roads all the way and good interior roads. We only stayed one night as a stop over on the way to TN but we would stay there again. Essentially silent there at night. We noted that we could hear the morning dew dripping off of the trees. - Revvie

We stayed at this park in site 11 for 6 nights. The site was completely level and backed up to a small stream that had trout and lots of wildlife. This is one of the prettiest parks we have been to, large sites, wooded and an abundance of birds and other wildlife to include sugar gliders. All the sites looked great, and many are very private. Lots of bathrooms/showers through out the park. I normally wouldn't use a bathhouse but these were clean and one had a large private room with toilet, shower and sink. This park is well taken care of by 2 sets of hosts, and the location is perfect for a relaxing stay. There are some no electric sites, electric only sites and some with electric and water. You can reserve on line or pay when you get there on an honor system in a drop box, many walk in sites were level and some of the best spots. If I was to go again I would just pay at the park and save the booking fee. There are 2 trails that start at the park, one is just a mile long the other is 6 miles round trip. We parked our vehicle with a bike loaded on it at the other end of the trail, 3 miles from the campgrounds, rode the bike back to the campgrounds and hiked to the car. We did not want to walk 3 miles on the road back. It is a beautiful trail, you walk along the ridge line for a long ways. The dump and water fill is across the road from the park, pay attention to the road going up to it, many have scraped bottom as it's pretty steep from resurfacing the road. You cannot fill in the park as the water hydrants that are by the roads are not able to be screwed on to with a hose. An after-thought, you could back into an empty site that has water hook up and fill?? But the dump station is still across the road. No alcohol rule and quiet hours were a observed. No wifi and spotty ATT service. No cable and our antenna did not pick any channels up. Walmart is 15 min away as well as other shopping. I loved this park! - hiker13

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

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

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

We are 6 month campers and have been doing this for about 6 years. We love Deer Trail Park as the owners and other campers have become dear friends. The grounds are always well kept and there are lots of amenities that affords everyone, regardless of age, something fun to do. The lack of cable tv, weak wifi and poor cell reception is a bit of a problem for some, but providing those amenities is outside the owners control because of the rural location of the park. All in all, you won't find a campground anywhere that is any better than DT. We are getting ready to retire and plan to hit the open road. The only negative we see in doing that is our time at Deer Trail Park will be greatly diminished and we will miss being there very much. - DrHntr
