The park is on the Colorado River and near off-road riding. The park is very very dusty. The place is in bad need of a makeover. It is old and looks very worn. The gifts for attending the sales presentation had so many requirements attached that they turned out to be worthless. There are lots of folks that stay for a long time and their sites look trashy.

Date of Stay:

The park is located across London Bridge and the best thing about the park is the location. The sites are very narrow. The staff are uninformed and barely functional. There are several park models, some of which are showing their age. Very friendly campers and snow birds. We would stay here again just because of the location. Even the pay internet did not work.

Date of Stay:

The resort itself is OK, not much to do or very close to the lake itself, but they do have a game room with some cards and a pool. The poor review is for the lady that runs the office. Very rude and unfriendly. What ever you do, don't tell her something is broken. The change machine in the laundry was out of order so I went to the office for change and they did not have any. The old lady was quite rude about the whole thing. The sites are very narrow and they warn you about your slide hitting the elect pole. The rest room was very dirty.

We stayed for free 3 nights with a coupon we got at an RV show. The new CalAm owners have put lots of $$ into the park. Excellent pickleball, tennis, shuffle board and Bocci ball courts. Some of the nicest outdoor amenities we have ever seen. The pool area is nice, but per other guests is very crowded during Jan and Feb. Some of the park is full of old park models and it looks quite trashy. The new park model area is very nice. They put us on the main road into the park in a site less than 40 foot deep. Very small slabs. Can hear the freeway noise. They are more interested in selling park models than (which has no security) in the guests. No cable at site. Very poor wi-fi.

The park is located near the windmills so it is quite windy at times. It is not located where you can easily bicycle in the area as it is not real safe. The park does close the gate during non golf course hours. The golf course is very nice but run very poorly and the folks that work there don't care at all. The facilities are nice, but they don't allow food or beverages in the TV room or the card and pool rooms. The one tennis court is used for pickleball on every other day so you can't play in the morning unless it is the correct day. The office staff shows a very indifferent attitude. We stayed for two months, went to the office for our mail as they did not give us a mailbox and after two months they still did not know who we were. The other guest were very friendly and the sites are quite adequate.

Very nice campground. The Wi-Fi worked great. The cable TV is over 100 channels. Small older campground in very good condition. Very narrow sites. Nice friendly staff.

I could not find any site with sewer hook ups. Nor could any of the other campers. They allow RVs and tents. The office is open very limited hours. It is basically a big field with a ball park and some very sorry tennis courts. No Wi-Fi, cable TV or shade. It is convenient to the Blue Ridge Parkway (5 miles) and good motorcycle roads in the mountains.

Nice small campground with very nice and helpful owner. The cable TV is a problem as they have to come to your site and hook it up. The Wi-Fi worked well. Fries is a very small town with a nice town park along the river. The only real attraction is the New River Trail which less than 1/2 mile away. It is for walking, bicycles and horses. It is a mostly level trail that follows the new river down stream. Returning up stream is not difficult though. As it was October, the canoe outfitters were closed except on the weekends.

Nice little park right in town. Very good location for bicycling on the Virginia Creeper Trail. Small sights that back up to the creek with a picnic table. Level sites. Small town so not much road noise. Good friendly owner. Not much to do other than the bike path.

Date of Stay:

Very nice park with friendly staff. Sites not too level (two wheels off the ground to level). Surprising amount of road noise. Several permanent residents. Would stop again on the way through. Price represents Passport America.

Our favorite state park. Friendly staff, nice sites. Clean and comfortable. Good inexpensive golf course, Disc golf and the lake.

Date of Stay:

It is a very nice park with lots of amenities. The staff are functional. Because it was April, there were no scheduled activities even though the park had over 100 campsites full. The power fluctuated lots (glad we had our surge protector). The water smelled very strong of chlorine and tasted very bad. The park is very large but only has one bath house and one trash drop station. The surface roads are getting to be in pretty bad shape. Just a little TLC and the park could be great instead of good.

Date of Stay:

Very tight sights. We had 6 feet between our door and the neighbors car. The back wheels were off the ground to level. The hook ups were on the wrong side so sitting outside by the septic was not real nice. No shade. Friendly staff, fair Wi-Fi. It is right next door to Camping World which is why we stayed here. We would not stay here again. The rate is for Passport America.

Date of Stay:

Nice resort, but very narrow sites. Our awning covered the neighbor's car. Good amenities, but no activities after March. Would stay here again, but just for a stopover. Rate reflects Passport America discount.

Date of Stay:

Nice quiet park. Good size sites for a state park. The staff is functional and not much help. The help center volunteers try real hard, but do not know much. The good bicycle trail is 10 miles away at the other end of the preserve.
