This campground was just reopened and the new owner is making a lot of positive improvements to the park. We stayed for the entire week of Thanksgiving so as you might imagine it was pretty quiet with only about 10 sites occupied during the week. It was quiet and clean. No junkie sites. Salisbury is just down the road about 5 miles with all the shopping you'll ever need as well as historical tours. We stopped by in the early fall one weekend while the park was pretty active and there was a lot of things going on. There was a big horseshoe tournament that day. Kids were paddle boating in the lake and we were able to speak to a lot of people in the short time we were there. We're thinking this may be our spring and fall park when we transition to full-time snow birds in the next year or so. You'll like Carolina Country CG, trust us. We camped at Carolina Country Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a really nice campground. We stayed for three nights prior to the Fourth of July in Camp Burson which is just outside the main park. We had one of the RV sites with full hookups under the trees. Big, open, level site with full hookups. Our daughter and her family came and rented one of the cabins in the main park. Our step-daughter and our grandson stayed with us. Let me tell you, the kids had a blast. They spent most of their time in the lake, on the lake or under the lake. They swam, canoed and paddle-boated for three days. They hiked all around the park on the trails. Check out the restaurant. Excellent and good prices too. We camped at Hungry Mother State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Try the restaurant. Really good food, great service, very reasonable prices. The town of Marion is just three miles away. Everything you might need can be had there.

This is a very clean, very nice, very friendly RV Campground. I see some have given it poor ratings but honestly, I can't see why. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The park is roomy with lots of trees shading most of the RV sites. There are some sites out in the sun but these are the exceptions. It's a full service park. The only thing I'd say they should consider putting in is a large swimming pool. I rate Raccoon Holler with a shout out of 10 for excellent. You can roll out the awning, set up the lounge chair, pop a cold one, and just chill out and read a book. You can even get a great signal for WIFI to the internet if you have one. Cable TV hookups, too. We camped at Raccoon Holler Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Lots of places to go nearby. The Blue Ridge Pkwy is right there. West Jefferson is a short hop away. Lots of local attractions within 30 minutes driving time.
