20 RV Parks near Meadows Of Dan, Virginia
Sep 2016 - $30.00
The family decided to spend Labor Day Weekend in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia at the last minute. We looked called the office at the Meadows of Dan Campground and were pleased that they had a site with water and power for Saturday and Sunday nights.
The campground is located right off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Meadows of Dan. The road into the park was filled with pot holes, but we were warned about them before arriving. The campground was fairly full with large trailers and RVS. We were the only tent trailer. The grounds are on a hill, but the sites were mostly level.
The facilities were clean and close to the camping loop. The restrooms were small, but nice. Each trailer site had water, electric, sewer, a fire ring, picnic table, and a charcoal grill. There is a small playground and athletic field near the sites. We especially enjoyed the large field and hill that allowed for some great stargazing on Sunday night.
The campground is near the town of Meadows of Dan with a small grocery store, gift shops, a restaurant, and a candy factory. One mile north on the Blue Ridge Parkway is Mabry Mill. Hillsville is 21 miles west and home to a large flea market/festival on Labor Day Weekend.
We enjoyed our stay and wish it could have been longer. We will return in the future. - dmaerz

We fell in love with this park! Very clean, in a rural setting with gorgeous sunsets. Park is up a hill surrounded by rolling meadows dotted with neat little cabins. We had a pull-through site but down below are some back-in sites. There were only 2 other RVs near us so we felt almost like we had the place to ourselves. Would definitely return. - Poolhall

Our GPS really led us astray on this one, and took us all round the place, and without a "good" address, it was a tough drive, to say the least...then, when we got there, at about 5:15, the office was closed and it was raining. The office is at the bottom, then you drive up a very steep hill to reach their small campground that is pretty much a flattened hill with gravel sites laid out. There was only one other RV there, so we just pulled into a site and settled in for the night. It was still raining really hard the next morning, and I had already pre-paid, so we just packed up and left early. I left a phone msg for the owners, but they never called back. Wasn't impressed and don't think we'll return if we can help it. - MarieB

Daddy Rabbit's is a campground in every sense of the word. It is secluded, rustic, wooded, hilly, gravel/dirt roads, and quiet. It is not difficult to get to, but you do have to drive down a couple of windy, narrow, country roads to get there. The staff is friendly. Closed in winter months, seasonal camping only. Group sites available. - MargaretL

Rate is 50% national pass rate. No electric, water or sewer. No soap or towels in bathrooms. No showers. Sites are very tight for a motorhome, which are only allowed in loop "T". They have a new reservation system, and the host don't know what sites have been reserved, so you can't park in any site that is "reservable" without risk of being asked to leave if someone shows up for that site. This limits the options for where you can park, and most of the "reservable" sites were empty. Camp rules prohibit generator use from 9PM to 8AM. Bathrooms accessible. Not worth the money, would rather stay at Wal-Mart, at least we can run generator there, watch TV till late and make coffee at 6AM. - jtdtsams

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

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

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

The website has directions for arrivals from various directions. We used them and they were very well done. I would recommend using the directions. The owner was very friendly and escorted us to our campsite, then showed us the particulars of the water and electrical hookups. The sites are pull-through of a nice length for most any RV. The view is amazing. The sites are on a hill overlooking a large grassy area and the road below. The sunrise was fabulous; we weren't here for the sunset. Campers next to us had a nice fire in the fire ring. Sites also include a picnic table. The laundry has only one washer and dryer, but no one was using them during our stay, so they would most likely be available when desired. Our site was level which is important to us as we have to put blocks under the wheels for leveling, therefore, the more level the site, the easier the leveling process. We were here for only one night. I would stay here again. - pavefan

The juice is worth the squeeze here; amazing views, excellent staff, quiet. On the other hand - its no small task to get there. we came in on the 58 which was fine, GPS took us 860 which is an old moonshiners run (Shooters Creek). Super short, steep hills that are unforgiving on your tow vehicles transmission. I'm well under my GVWR BTW fully loaded and we had to stop twice to let her cool down. Take the 8 into Floyd and save yourself the hassle. A positive note is the locals are super friendly and one couple even stopped and guided us through the run with their hazards on the last stretch. Even offered us a bed for the night if things took a turn for the worse. We made it up the mountain and took their info so we could keep in touch. Great experience! Would definitely go again, coming in on the 8. - hendrijp

Stayed in a site between the office and campground B. There were 2-3 sites in that area so it was quiet. Beautiful views. Campground B seemed to be mostly permanent residents. There are several sites near the store then other sites are scattered around. It is a beautiful setting with acres of grass and then woods around that. Can do a lot of walking on the roads within the property and they also have trails. There is a small fenced areas for dogs near the far end of area B. The photo on the website of B8 is a generic photo. B8 and the site beside it are not in a row of sites. They are off on their own. Description says it is steps from the office but I'd say it is more than that. This is a beautiful area and it is well worth the scenic drive to get to it. Did not use bath house in section B but it looked new. - ClassCdogperson

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

This park is owned by the local VFW & American Legion. The 50 acre site is home to their local county fair and a number of other regional and local events. The park is well kept, very neat and clean. All the spaces are back in that back up next to the perimeter of the property. If they have a special event going on they would of course be very busy. The night we stayed we were the only rig in the campground. So that made for a very quiet and pleasant stay... At their rate of $30.00 a night its way over priced but it's only a mile and a half from downtown "Mayberry" and all the money you pay goes to support the park along with it's owner's the local American Legion and the VFW.. So we stayed one night instead of two and headed out the next day.. "Mayberry" - happyflyer
