Lovely little park with an assortment of accommodations. Owners were friendly and wake up to a million dollar view! A must visit! - jailbabe1892

We are in a 36' class A DP and our opinion is that this park is not big rig friendly. The road from the office down to the campsites is steep and narrow with loose gravel and deep ruts in the road from rain runoff. We made it without issues but not without some concern and wishing we weren't here. Smaller campers, trucks and trailers will probably do fine. We paid $50 for 2 nights - one with PA discount and one with GS. Didn't use the restrooms. Plenty of grass for dog walking. Lots of OTA stations. Didn't try our satellite. Wifi didn't work at all for us-I used Verizon hotspot. We reserved and paid for premium site 13. The only thing premium about this site is that it has a small deck. 13 is very narrow and if we had squeezed our MH into it we wouldn't have been able to open the driver side bay doors due to a railroad tie retaining wall. We were able to take site 12 and it was wider and more level. If you do go here in a bigger rig site 12 is ok or sites 1-4 which are before you go down the steep hill (but you'll need to go down it to leave). I was expecting a Blue Ridge Parkway-kind-of-view but we didn't have that from our site. We wouldn't stay here again but that doesn't mean you shouldn't in something smaller. - thekites

A gem located right on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Small and quiet and private. Great location for exploring both north and south along the Parkway. The friendly owner helps new arrivals park their rigs. We stayed for 9 nights and would stay here again. - NCRoamers

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

We stayed 5 nights. The staff was very friendly, and helpful. The only down side is that they could use better WiFi system. The best spot to pick it up is around the office and pool areas. Due to the area the campground is in, it's a bit hilly. The grounds are well kept. There are plenty of things for the kids do. The only "Cell Phone" service available is Verizon, due to the campground's location. - md_procouple

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

Park has two sections: a wooded area with back-in sites for small to medium rigs, and a hillside meadow with pull-through's for longer rigs and those that just want a mountain view. Our site was almost exactly level; most others looked close to level, but I did see some helpful lumber left around, so all may not be exactly level. Being on a hillside, the sites do slope off to the side. The step down from the RV may be long. Utilities all worked fine (WSE). It got hot a few days, and we ran all 3 AC's uneventfully. Wifi is better that most campgrounds we have stayed in. Owners are pleasant and helpful. The campground is very dog friendly. The wooded area is available for walks. Right behind our RV was an acre+ mowed lawn in which we played with the dog (who adores Frisbee). The campground is primarily (90%) seasonal part-timers. All rigs were neatly kept, and the residents, mostly retirees, were friendly. The campground is easily accessible from I-77, maybe a mile or so away. There are a couple restaurants within a mile and several more 8 miles away in Hillsville. There is truck diesel at the I-77 interchange. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a mile or so away. We really like it here. It's private, quiet, scenic, with all amenities that we need. - Just Dave

Really good WiFi. Staff where efficient and we were taken to our site and helped to back in. Site was not so level as it needed 4 to level on the passenger side to make good. Really very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. - Aussie Chums

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

Outstanding stay. Camp hosts were very friendly and offered some sites to see. The nearby town was close and neat. - AndyT

Small but very pretty park about 15 mi from Interstate and conveniences. Paved sites that back up to trees, although some are close to roadway. You may hear some traffic noises early in the morning but didn't bother us. About half of the sites seem to be water/electric and rest are rustic. Bath houses but no showers, modest but clean. Cell reception is nonexistent. No cable TV but we saw some satellite dishes. No WiFi either, although description says there is. We contacted Forest Service who said the RV sites are reserved by going to Reserve America and some of the rustic sites are on there too, I think. Rest are first-come basis. If you don't have a reservation you can check with the camp host. No guarantees, but when we were there it was not completely full. Says big rigs not suitable, but I would add that any rig over the 35 ft range would have issues. All sites are back-in. They do have a separate driveway for your vehicle, however. It is a very quiet, peaceful place with a pretty creek running alongside and some trails running through it. No fancy stuff, just a back to nature kind of place. - Carolina Travelers

The park is small, quiet, clean, and well laid out. Nicely shaded with easy access to towns, highways, attractions. A famous hiking trail is accessible directly from the campground. The camp host is very helpful and knowledgeable; he is also very watchful, in a quiet, non-intrusive way. I stayed about 10 days...hated to leave. Oh! There is NO TV or cell reception, but has great Internet! I can't wait to return. The camp host helps pick the best site for you & your rig. They are not all level, but very manageable. - Linda 2

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 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

Nice quite location. Road through park needs to be graded as there are a few large pot holes. Also, wifi service is very spotty. Manager was very accommodating and helpful. - Shook

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

If you are looking for a great little park on a beautiful but small lake. This is the place for you. Now a few words of caution. Big rigs will not be able to get into it. One review says a 35 foot fifth wheel made the turn down the hill into the park. He was probably a very seasoned driver. The road from downtown Pulaski goes through a residential area that goes up a big winding hill and the road is very narrow. Once you get past the residential area it's another 6 miles to the campground at the most 35 mph. AT&T cell service is none existent but I'm told that Verizon works sometimes. Obviously there is no WIFI. The park has about 2 dozen Canadian geese year round and they are noisy and very messy, pooping everywhere. Another issue is that some of the locals that come in for the weekend and bring their dogs do not leash them. We found some of these dogs are big and act aggressive. They also do not clean up after them either. So if you want to stay here do it Monday and leave Thursday or Friday. We liked the park and the restrooms were clean and the staff friendly. This lake has a boat launch area but only trolling motors are allowed. They are limited on large campsites and you cannot make reservations. It is a first come first serve park. When we were there it is cash only. Outside of the no cell or WIFI we enjoyed our 4 night stay here. Our site was long enough for our 32 foot trailer and crewcab F250. It was a gravel site but pretty level. - Bill from Texas

This park is beautiful especially during the week when they have fewer campers. Only 5 people using it for most of the week we were here. Locals fill it up pretty good on the weekends. Lots of small campers and tents. The park is about 30 minutes from any stores or services. That 30 minute drive from Pulaski is on roads that are pretty narrow. It would be tough in many spots to pass another larger RV without slowing to a crawl (if at that). Just before you get to the campsites, is a very steep left turn and you need to take care not to run into a ditch. Our 5th wheel is 32 feet and someone with a 35 foot 5th wheel made it in also. I'm told they don't get many motorhomes due to length. All that being said, I think we liked the park more than any other we have been in. It's a beautiful place. - srfnut

Because we live nearby, we have camped here many times. It's a beautiful and peaceful campground that is pretty much out in the middle of nowhere. The sites are generally spacious and level, and include a concrete pad, fire ring and picnic table. There is one bathhouse in the campground which is very old but is adequately clean. Metal fishing boats are available to rent for a small charge. There is a playground for the kids but no swimming area or other amenities. Although it's a lovely campground, unless you enjoy fishing there's really not much to do here but enjoy the scenery. - kitten4762
