Park was clean and easy to get to but a bit expensive, given the conditions of the site. While there are some pull-through sites with paved patios and chairs, the rest of the sites are mostly back-in sites with just enough gravel width for your rig. The rest of the area at the sites is a combination of grass/dirt. Our particular site had about 1' of fall front to back, but most sites appeared to be level. At $70-80/night, I would expect the sites to be a little nicer. The sewer connection at our site and at least the others surrounding me are threaded, but two different sewer connections I used would not screw in tight. The threads seemed almost stripped. Not a huge deal if you are careful with how you weigh down the connection, but this could lead to sewage spills if someone is not careful. The WiFi in the park is free and good enough to stream Netflix. No issues with power, water, or cable. Pool looked clean. Laundry room $2-2.50 per load) and office was clean and the staff was very nice and helpful. Several folks live here full time, it appears. Park is on the Nuese River with a dock and kayaks/paddle boats you can rent for $10/hour. It is located across the Nuese from New Bern, a very nice and historical southern town.

Spent a wonderful 5 days here with my family. Small park with only 15-16 sites that are all level, large, and fairly private. We stayed at site 15. Very private, complete with deck overlooking a small creek that meanders from the back of the park to the front. Each site has full hookups and 30/50 amp power. All sites and roads are covered with gravel which keeps the park very clean, even in bad weather. During our stay we had several strong rain events and our site (and overall park) drained very well. The park is located in the town of Fries which is 15-20 minutes from Galax, Va. it is where the 50+ mile long New River Trail begins. Trail is relatively flat and runs alongside the beautiful New River. The park owner is extremely nice and helpful. He developed the park and obviously takes great pride in his work.

Great campground with so much to do. There are paved walking trails and unpaved mountain bike trails, hiking trails, and horseback riding trails that all meander through the beautiful hardwood forest. The trails are well maintained. Bring your bikes. The campground is 200 yards away from a clean, fenced, off-leash dog park that separates large dogs (greater than 25 pounds) from the small dogs. Both the trails and the dog park contain several trash cans and pet waste bags for your convenience. You can even take a horseback ride along the Yadkin river. 45 minute long ride for $30 each. Very fun. The campground is only a part of the overall 1100 acre county owned and operated park. The campground consists of 44 full hook up sites that are paved and offer 20, 30, and 50 amp connections and cable. Sites 24-37 are not very level with some having over 2 feet of fall from front to back. Sites 5-8 have a little over 1 foot of fall. Sites 1-4, 10-23, and 38-44 are the most level in the park. It seems that motorhomes have the most trouble leveling out. We stayed in our 5th wheel, so we limited how much we manually dropped our front legs before unhooking. The hosts were all very friendly and helpful and stay on sites 45-47.

We stayed on the "front row" (closest the beach), so it was very nice and the ocean breeze was certainly nice. The site was grass/sand but level and all of them are pull through. Each site has a 10'x6' covered picnic area with a picnic bench underneath. Full hook ups but the sewer connection is not threaded so you just place your sewer line inside and place something on top of it to keep it in place (I used two of my levelling boards). With this being the coast, the wind can become strong at times especially during summer storms so please use caution with your awning. We kept ours rolled in most of the time. The staff was very friendly and willing to help. Cleanest bath houses I have seen. Cable worked well as did wifi. No additional charge for either. The pool appeared very clean and well maintained. It was complete with kiddie pool and lazy river. The laundromat was very nice. There are a couple of very casual eating places on site and there is PLENTY to do and places to eat in very close proximity to the campground.

Beautiful rv park that offers stunning views and in close proximity of all that Asheville offers. This relatively small campground classifies its sites as either premium or deluxe. The deluxe sites offer shaded sites with filtered views of the French broad River valley and distant mountains. The premium sites have tremendous, unobstructed views of the river and mountains but are not very shaded. Both types are full hookup. The gravel road up to the campground is a little narrow and a little steep in spots but I had no issue pulling our 31 foot travel trailer up or down. The sites are all fairly level and have a fire ring and picnic table. The campground also has some decent trails to explore.

Park is beautiful, peaceful, well manicured/landscaped and very clean. It is obvious the owners take great pride in providing a wonderful camping experience. Sites are full hook up, level, spacious and over half of them back up to a very peaceful stream. Bathhouse was very clean, and the camp store/office offers books and movies on loan. We will be back soon!!
