September 2013
We stayed here for a month to enjoy the area and camp with family. This park is a mixed bag for us. The location is about as good as it gets - getting in and out wasn't too bad given the mountains. The proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway cannot be beat -- less than 1 mile away. Nice man made pond with large grassy area and playground for the kids. Sites are quite variable in size, level and tree coverage -- do your homework before reserving if you intend to stay a while. Since we stayed for an extended trip and we both work, we had the local telephone company install internet directly to our site to avoid struggling with the park's internet (which is very spotty). Now, the less desirable side, for us: our encounters with a few of the staff was not that great. We bring along a street legal scooter to get around parks and the first thing we were told was "you cannot ride that here". Ok, rules are rules, we respected it. However, that would have been nice to see that policy on the web site ahead of time before I drug the thing 1300 miles. Beyond that encounter, they were curt and unfriendly during most transactions. Felt like I was bothering them to buy something, etc. I had a great laugh at one of the other reviews description of the "Golf Cart Mafia". Couldn't agree more with that. The park definitely had that "I've got my eye on you" vibe in places. There are a bunch of seasonal sites here and some are quite cluttered which is a bit of visual noise pollution. That said, the seasonal folks were extremely friendly and that park has a great social vibe to it. The rate reflects a monthly rate, which has metered electricity. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Overview: This is an OK place to stay if you're just passing by overnight on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Roads: Nicely paved, but narrow. Campsites: Gravel - Most are decent. Minor leveling is needed in some. Some are shaded, some are not. Scenery: Decent with a man-made lake in front. Not much going on there, no shade trees. Bathrooms: The bath house I used was pretty lame. Hasn't been updated in decades. The Bayou Segnette State Park bath house in New Orleans likely spent more on one toilet stall than this entire bath house. Expect peeling paint coat after paint coat for your shower walls. The shower heads are awful like sandblasting equipment nozzles. Staff Attitude: Expect one. Something about these folks comes across as arrogant. It's a campground - not the Ritz Carlton. It seems to depend on who you get, but don't expect a simple "thank you" when purchasing items in the store. There are old guys sitting around like the golf cart mafia. Firewood: It's more like Firebark. Doesn't burn well - some of it actually has the burning behavior of a meteorite. Security: Excellent. Likely because of the golf cart mafia. Conclusion: I wouldn't plan on staying here for long. Many of the campers are nice. They don't make up for the rest of it in my opinion. Plan on staying a night or two. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This clean, quiet campground is a stone's throw from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Our first stay was in 1990. This was our second stay. About one third of the sites are seasonal and the rest for visitors. Visitor rather than travelers. This is great for an overnight, but the facilities and setting makes it great for a longer stay. A very friendly person on the phone made it easy for us to arrive late. This park is better than I remembered. Our kids loved this place and now I know why. Great camping experience for a family. Plenty for kids to do. Quiet for adults to do nothing. We'll be back again without our long wait. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
