10 RV Parks near Martinsville, Virginia
Jan 2019 - $40.00
Mostly filled with seasonal workers...so busy and noisy with people leaving or coming in. Easy access with canoe to White River. Electric and water fine. The pictures on website and camp map look much better than reality. They claim to have cabins...look abandoned. Office is in brick house and was easy to drive by. - Jitime40

There are mostly long term campers here it seems. Park is located right on the Smith River. The pull through sites are not on the river. Each site has its own garbage can. The check in staff is very nice. Office in brick house and then campground a bit further up the road. WiFi for us was non existent in site 63. At $45 I thought it was a bit pricey. Didn't use restrooms or laundry. As mentioned sewer connection a bit far back. - cchall112

This RV Park is conveniently located on 220 business. Power was good as was water pressure but the sewer connections was too far towards the rear of the site for our MH. We were only staying one night so did not connect to the sewer but it would have taken every inch of the sewer hose I carry to reach it. Not all sites are like this so ask before occupying a site. No cable but we could get TV with our antenna. There is some traffic noise but not bad as the road is higher then the park. - MarkandMarty

The staff was excellent. When we pulled up with our 40 foot rig they were worried that the space we reserved wouldn't be big enough. Took my husband to another site and then to the one we reserved. We took the one we reserved because it had more privacy (we had 6 dogs). We barely got out both slides but my husband was able to maneuver the RV into position so we could. We couldn't fully extend the awning tho. We aren't used to having campers so close but everyone was respectful and quiet. Can't say enough good things about the staff. - LakeAnnaLabs

Due to extreme weather electric went out for a few hours. The gentleman working at the campground who had a generator offered and made my husband and I, a morning cup of coffee. Extremely appreciated gesture and represented the overall treatment by staff. Very impressed and will be back. Lots are spacious and offered some shade. Site surface was gravel and featured a fire ring and picnic table. - MMcCarthy

This is a great little campground. We stayed on the 50 amp loop. This loop seemed a little newer and the road was plenty wide to maneuver our 35 ft travel trailer. The other loop seemed a little tighter but there were some larger units down there. Our site was level side to side and it seemed to drain well as we got some rain everyday. The bathhouses are clean and modern. The boat launch for campers only was nice also. Both camper loops were full the weekend we stayed but it was very quiet and peaceful at night. The rangers and local police came through regularly. It was a great weekend trip for us and we will be doing this more often. - MX_470

I only rated it as a 9 because we pulled in to our reserved site Sunday about 3 and the rude people next door had their vehicles in our site. When I asked them to move, they huffed and puffed as though we were disturbing them. The following day the locals had left and the park was a place of glory. Site were spacious while some were rather close together. Our goal was to camp in Fairy Stone Park, but after visiting it and this park there is no question why we are glad we chose what we did. Would definitely return, just in June on the weekend. Reservations are a must. Good WiFi from our AT&T hotspot and cell service both with AT&T & Verizon. - garmp

Located on a point on Philpott Lake this is a very nice campground. We were on site 30 loop C, a very nice site once you get your trailer situated. This site is a bear to get into as there is a steel gate and gate post right in the area you need to maneuver. Site 29 across the road is the same, hard to get into. I took a side marker light off my 31' trailer getting in, but other than that I had no issues with the roads. The campground seems to be inhabited by lots of locals, which I suppose if I lived nearby I'd do the same. I made my reservations in February to get a site during the week in May, you can't get in on weekends they are all booked. There is a nice beach and boat ramp with a fairly large parking lot. To those of you with small children, some of the sites in loop C are not kid friendly as they have 15 to 20 sheer drops to the lake and this lake is extremely deep, even close to shore.
The restrooms were exceptionally clean. There are only 2 showers in each restroom. The dumpster is 1/2 mile up the hill, as is the dump station. There is another restroom at that location with more showers. - scjenk

We had to reserve our sites 6 months in advance. We camp at this up to eight weekends each summer. Park ranger are friendly and the site are large in size. One of the best lakes in the area for boating. - ciderman

What a great area. The corp of eng. should cut a few trees away from the roads so it would be easier to get in the sites ! Would be so many more campers and revenue if people could get there campers in easier !! We had a hard time getting in number 1 and 2. We went looking and several trees need to be gone to allow campers in overall after several attempts it was ok but the room we lost from the trees so close would have been a wonderful place to camp - Glenna boothe

Nice Army Corps campground on Phillpot Lake. Be aware that if you are in a motorhome or anything longer than 25ft do not travel to the lower sections of the campground. The roads are very tight and curvy. Lots of trees line the roads. We were in site 7, which is a pull through. Very tight for a 25ft trailer. Could not pull in, had to back in. Campground is very clean. The swimming beach is nice, but a good walk from the upper section. The lower section is mostly for tents and pop-ups with no water or electric. The upper bathhouse is the only one with showers, and there are only two. Make sure you bring what you need, because the campground has no store or supplies and the closest store is about 6 miles away. There is a boat ramp and two swimming beaches. We had a good time here and will return. - zeppy35

Campground area is old and rough. Most campsites for RV's are very small (we have a 23 foot trailer). Lots of screaming from unruly kids (parents have no control). The screaming is so loud that you cannot sit outside. I don't understand why parents just let their kids run around and scream. We have stayed in many state parks and national parks, by far this is the noisiest. We booked for 2 days but we might leave and go someplace else. This place might be nice during the week once the kids are back in school...weekends are noisy don't expect to get any sleep. The campsite itself was broken asphalt and pot holes.
The cabins looked nice to rent, some were on the lake. If we ever come back we might try to rent a cabin instead of using the camping area. If you come with kids ask about the area where you can hunt for "Fairy Stones". - wahooo

Stayed for a September weekend. This is the 10th state park in Virginia we have visited. It had to be the most beautiful lake yet. It was so peaceful on the lake (we brought kayaks), that if you stopped paddling, it was actually silent. For summer use, it had a very large beach and play area for the kids. We travel in a 17' travel trailer. The spaces were very tight. There is only one campground unless you are bringing horses, then there is one for that. There were a few larger spaces, but not many. The campground is about 1/2 mile from the beach. Due to hills and smaller roads, it is not bike friendly...even in the campground...and there are warnings about that. None of this should deter you. It is beautiful there and well maintained. The staff were all so friendly. About 3 miles back down the road, you get to search for "fairy stones" on State Park land. We found quite a few. Rangers also lead trips. There really are not any easy stores close by...probably within 20 minutes though...so come with what you need. We would revisit. - YFF

Staff and the host were outstanding. Among the best ever at a campground. Showers and bathrooms were better than some hotels. When you reserve online, you are guaranteed a site, and when you arrive, you pick out the site. Good water and electric...wish they had some full hookups. Lots of shade, trails. Very limited WiFi and cell service (you had to walk around sometimes), but very good TV reception. several very long pull-throughs. We chose a back-in. No really bad sites. Try to avoid rt 58 from I-77 to the park, hills and turns. We went back thru bassett and picked up 220 to Roanoke. - badbuckeye

The owner of this campground has anger management issues. He made the stay uncomfortable and was rude to us. We left early and paid extra fees for many things. Too many rules, only allows 4 adults per stay and we have a 10 person camper. This owner talked down to us and made us feel so uncomfortable, we felt as though we had to walk on eggshells and stay inside our camper. Very sad visit. - Lisa ezell

I really enjoyed Dan River Campground, where I stayed four nights in mid-July. Glen and Charlotte are conscientious hosts, and the property is well maintained. I stayed in an area (site 22) that had more the feel of a state park than an RV park - except with strong wifi, and a very pleasant pool. An unexpected bonus was tube-float on the Dan River, and getting picked up at my site! In my view, Dan River Campground is also a good value (ie, under $30). I hope this review is helpful. - Gail H

My experience at Camp Hill was perfect. The park is a very well kept park, clean and woodsy. Perfect setting.
It is obvious that the owner is on his game with keeping the park clean.
I look forward to staying there again on my way north soon.
The trails along the river were really beautiful.
This campground is easily on of my favorite for quiet and safe camping. My dog loved it too! :) :) - Marneen

We made reservations in the summer to stay at Deer Run Campground for three nights, so we could attend the Blue Ridge Folk Festival on Saturday, Oct. 26 at Ferrum College. I requested a pull-through site from the gentleman I spoke to on the phone and told him we had a 36' class A motorhome and we'd be towing a vehicle for a total of 53'. He said it would not be a problem. We drove from another campground where we had been staying the previous week and arrived in the rain at Deer Run. First thing we noticed was that gravel hadn't been added to the campground roadways in years and they were more mud then gravel. When my wife went in to check in she was told that we were scheduled to be in a back-in, but since the campground was practically empty, he would walk us to a pull-through. The site to which he guided us to was so unlevel that it would be impossible to get our big rig motorhome leveled safely. We drove back to the office and were told"I'm sorry, but that's all we have available. That seemed odd since we were one of maybe three RV's in the whole campground. Also We had passed sites that were more level on the drive back to the office, but they had other vehicles parked in them, not RVs. We decided that the campground could not accommodate us, so we opted to go somewhere else and lost our $50 deposit. We missed the Folk Festival because the next closest campground was 2 hours away. This could be a nice campground with TLC and general upkeep, but we cannot recommend it, especially to big rig class A motorhomes and 5th wheels. - John Laurich

Although well off the beaten path, and a little hard to find, we enjoyed staying here. The park is being renovated with wider spaces and sewer hookups. It was not crowded over Labor Day weekend and there were hayrides, etc... for the kids to enjoy. They have 3 lakes for fishing and a pool for the kids. The bathrooms had been repaired and were well stocked as well as very neat and clean. If you want to get away from it all, I recommend Deer Run. They also have permanents in a certain area in the rear, but they also seemed to be tidy and quiet hours were adhered to by all. We will stay again! - campfever

We selected this campground as we had friends who lived nearby, and we wanted to visit with them. This was pretty far off the beaten path, and the approach road was narrow, winding, and probably not really suited for a 45 ft Class A motorhome with a Jeep in tow. That said, once we made it into the campground, we were able to fit into the pull through assigned to us. Leveling required several attempts and adjustments but we got it done. The utilities all worked. The greatest problem we had was very poor cell-phone reception, as we were down in a low kind of a meadow, surrounded by hills and trees. And the trees! Although not directly overhead, the satellite signal was still blocked as the trees formed a great wall along the south-western horizon. So it was a little bit of "real" camping, as we were pretty much out of touch with the world. - MerBee

We stayed here for labor day weekend, it's a nice quiet, small campground. I had my 3 grandchildren with me so we were a little worried about the lack of things for them to do but they had a great time. They played on the playground the entire time and made friends with other children who were camping there. The WIFI was great and I'm glad it was because cell service is not very good. The owners were very friendly, the facilities and the grounds were very clean. There was a nice little general store about 3 miles away that had everything we needed. - Edson kitchen

Nice quiet campground. At $25 a night, I was very pleased. No real amenities & nothing really to do, but we just wanted a base to get into Roanoke so it worked for that. Sylvia, the owner, was very friendly & open to any suggestions a camper may have. - rascalydog
