I really did not like this place. Why? First, there is zero connectivity in most sites. No Verizon and no AT&T because most sites are down in a valley. WiFi is available at the bath houses. Unfortunately, the sites are far enough from the bath house that you get somewhere between 0 and 1 bar of Wi-Fi. Second, you are far from any town. West Jefferson is the closest town at 20 minutes away with few amenities. Boone, with more amenities, is 30 minutes away. Fourth, there isn't much to do at the campground. There is a lake and a playground, but no pool or anything else. Finally, I was yelled at by the angry lady who runs the front desk. That was the last straw for me. We were supposed to stay 7 nights but left 4 nights early and ate the cost. We have been full-time RVing for 10 months. Of the approximately 40 RV parks we have stayed at, I liked this one the least. - RVVicki

This was our first visit to Raccoon Holler in a 40ft Motorhome. Overall, the campsites seemed well kept, roads are paved, sites are gravel. This campground is at about 3000 ft elevation. We had nice breeezes in the evenings as we sat on top of the mountain. Our campsite was next to a road outside of the campground but traffic was not a problem as there is not much traffic. Each site had a picnic table. Sites are not level so definitely plan on using blocks. We called to confirm which highway to travel to the park. We traveled Hwy 16 which was basically a good 2 lane road but most of it did not have any shoulder. Definitely would return. - User1828

Stayed for 10 days in 42 ft. coach. Park is actually easy walking distance to Blueridge Parkway & an easy entrance to gate from the Parkway. Utilities are good, but wi-fi a little sketchy, as are most rv parks. They do have a weekly rate of $235 & monthly rate of $450 + electric. Stayed in newly developed section which consists of 4 pull-thrus (all packed gravel), front of pull-thru has a bit of forward slant, so if you have some blocks, you will be fine. Pull-thrus will easily accomodate a 45 footer + tow. Closest Walmart is in West Jefferson & if you want to go to Boone, we found the quickest way via Parkway. Also, no problems getting satellite tv. One last thing....entrance to park is a bit on the snug side, so take it nice & slow to avoid scratches on your coach or trailer. Mgt. should really consider cutting back some of the shrubbery. - Smooth Running

This is a nice park and convenient. Not many open sites since most sites are being used by permanent campers. Utilities were very good. Our site was not level but we were able to lever using our jacks and no boards. :Park is clean and kept up well. Wifi worked well except at night when many people were on it. TV reception is poor with only a ferw channels available and we could not find any national channels except PBS. We would stay here again. - RayN

The sites are so unlevel that we couldn't get even close to level with our leveling jacks. Be sure to bring leveling blocks. We stayed two nights. The sites are long enough for our big rig and toad. The utilities are well placed and work well. There is no cable TV, and we could only get a few wothless channels on our antenna. The wifi is very good except in the evening when everyone is using it. Most of the sites are occupied by seasonal tenants who have trees. The short term sites are lined up in the center of the campground with no trees or landscaping. While the campground is located in a beautiful area, the campground itself is not very pretty. I doubt that I would stay here again mainly because of the unlevel sites. - FSUWizard

This Park is beautiful, the grounds are very well maintained, and so clean. There are beautiful walking trails. Native wildflowers are allowed to flourish in the green fields which in turn attracts hundreds of butterflies and the nightly show of firefly lights is spectacular. My husband and I visited for 10 days and loved the Park and the West Jefferson/New River area so much we opted for a seasonal site. The fee reflects the monthly rate which is actually lower. The seasonal sites are metered and we pay our own electric which is fine with me. Power is excellent 122 volts/60 hz. Since we are planning on being here seasonally, we had the sewer hard-piped by a very nice local plumber, and it is a blessing. The Park is situated on the slopes of Mount Jefferson which is so beautiful. The mountain views from our coach are incredible. The seasonal Park residents are friendly, everyone waves and stops for a chat. My family has been in the RV Park business for decades and from my own experience I will say that this is the best Campground/RV Park we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The owners and managers are friendly and every detail is attended to. There are also planned activities to enjoy. By the way, this is my first RV Park review and we could not be happier. - Amy Griffith

We visited New River State Park with five other families for Easter Weekend. Our group included travel trailers and tents. The campground was well maintained and the facilities were wonderful. The bathrooms were clean and warm. The showers had good pressure and hot water. Out site had full utilities and worked well. The campground host was friendly and helpful. The campground sits atop a hill and is a distance from the New River. You can drive or hike to the river. The hike is not too steep, but is about a mile. The Hickory and River Run trails make a nice loop that starts and ends near the park office. The There is a small museum/gift shop located near the campground that is worth a visit. Our only concern was the one way direction of the road made pulling into our site (19) rather difficult. We needed to go in the other direction to navigate the turn. Overall, we truly enjoyed our visit and the proximity to other activities. We will return. - dmaerz

The park was nearly empty when we were there...out of 20 campsites, only one other one was occupied. But it felt safe and we loved our time here. Spent 4 days just being outside, exploring the park and trails, and enjoying a little solitude in nature. No playground for kids, but they had fun exploring the surrounding woods. The park office has a small museum about the area that's entertaining and informative. The only drawbacks were no laundry facilities and the long drive into town for groceries. - lg_77

We live close by to this park and frequently go here for the night for some fun family time. This park is a gem as far as state parks are concerned. The sites are well maintained and very spacious. Each site offers a large patio area with a picnic table and a fire ring. The park itself is lovely and a great option for those looking for relaxing hikes, canoeing, and fishing. I can't think of anywhere else that offers more for your money. - McNeills

One you come here you won't stop coming here! Twin Rivers is a beautiful campground. Although the cell phone service is little to none, and there is limited wifi, the things to do are endless! You can kayak, tube, bike, or walk down to where the south and north fork of the new river meet! We have been many times and will continue to go!
The view that you get at any of the sites are breathtaking and never get old. This campground is very family friendly. The staff is wonderful!!! - Kaylee1

Right on the river. Great place to tent camp. Bring tubes (for the river). Lots offer some shade. Sites are grass and feature a picnic table. - Zomb

Twin Rivers is just awesome for families, for relaxing and enjoying nature. The river is great for canoeing, kayaking, tubing, wading and fishing. Perfect for kids. Full on weekends, quiet and peaceful on weekdays. The managers are fantastic folks and go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and comfortable. - marshavon

If you are willing to boondock, the NPS campground on the Blue Ridge Parkway is a good bet for you. The campground has a few "reserve ahead" sites and a few first come, first served sites. We were there at the start of the long July 4 weekend, and did not have a problem finding a site. About half of the sites were in use. Our site was mostly level, and easy to back into. The camp host was very helpful. There is a 1 mile (each way) hike from the campground through woods and meadows to the Beringer Cabin. There is a much shorter (though less interesting) drive to the cabin. - ShoreXplorers

Absolutely gorgeous country. Heavily forested. Verdant green, rolling hills, picturesque farms and valleys wherever you look. Silent: no road noise, no trains. Colder than we realized in May: thunder, hail and rain showers.
Typical older NPS campground. Only A loop has sites big enough for RVs, only two were close to our size, 43'. (B and C loops were closed and might not open this year according to the host).
No hookups, no showers. Water is available and there is a dump station. The sites are narrow but not close together, narrow roads are paved. No AT&T or OTA TV, told Verizon works fine.
Lots of ticks in the woods, so inspect dogs and people constantly. - bobcovey

This is one of the old-fashioned National Park campgrounds that seems like it was created around the time that the Blue Ridge Parkway was built after the Great Depression. The roads and the campsites are narrow with no overflow parking, which means you must be able to fit your entire camping rig in the length of the driveway. It is beautiful, it is quiet (unless your neighbors are running a generator), and there are lovely places to hike. There was some cell phone voice and data coverage and a campground host. Some of the sites are reservable, while others are not. We were able to fit our 30' fifth wheel in a larger pull-through spot by backing into it. However, many of the sites would not accommodate our size or our slides. After a glass of wine and a beer, it was a beautiful place to stay and listen to the birds. There are not many services, but for $19/night it was worth it. - JBick

Very nice, somewhat rustic CG. Open main area with 10 RV sites, and several tent sites. 20, 30, and 50 amp service at RV sites. No water or sewer at RV sites. Fill up your camper's freshwater tank at the bath house on arrival (they supply blue hose), and there is a dump station for when you leave. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Firewood is $10 per large bundle, as you can't bring your own. He brings it to your site. There are numerous hiking trail. Elevation is 3,800 ft., so this would be a nice summer CG. - Ken H.

What a gem! One of those places you kinda' don't WANT to review, because you'd rather keep it quiet!
It's a treacherous drive up the last mile or so to get to the campground. It's basically a one lane steep, windy, gravel and dirt road with very few opportunities to move out of the way of another vehicle. But.... if you're willing to do that, the payoff is so worth it! Just DON'T miss the left turn into the campground and go too far.... it'll be tough to get back there!
The one ONLY other downside is that there are no water hookups at the sites.... but the staff will help you fill up on the way in and then if you run out, they will assist with helping to run hoses to you for refilling. Obviously there's also no sewer hookups.... but they will arrange pump out service.... it's $40.... so choose wisely!
The campground is VERY tenter heavy and GREAT for hiking. The weekends are FULL.... but it's so spacious etc that the only real downside was that the shower house had pretty long lines with all those tenters on the weekend days. The bath house is immaculate as is the rest of the property!
It's like sleeping in the clouds.....literally on SOME days! It was just spectacular though! Mountains all around.... warm summer breezes and cool nights! AMAZING escape from the heat and humidity of Florida! And we saw lightning bugs, chipmunks and even a hummingbird! Very cool! - doggpurr

When we arrived I found out that due to my negligence I did not notice when booking that the campsites did not have water a each site. Only electricity. Our camper has never had the fresh water tanks filled so we were not going to take a chance on contamination or it having leaks. The owners were very nice and understood my decision to cancel the reservation. They still charged me the cancellation fee but that was to be expected and I did not argue as it was my fault. On another note!! Please be advised that this campground name has mountain in it. That being said we were pulling a 32 ft trailer with our F250 and it was a struggle to get it up to the campground. Once you get off the highway from Boone the road is gravel up to Blue Bear CG. One other word of caution. Do not miss the turn as there is no sign that tells you the turn off goes to your campground. You have to know the road name and be watching for it diligently. The second we realized we missed the turn it was too late and drove 3 miles looking for a place to turn around on this narrow two lane road. I finally gave up and stopped in the middle of the road and backed up on to a side road to turn around. They could use a sign just before the turn if it was permissible. I'm sure it would have been a pleasant stay if you did not need the convenience of water on your site. - Bill from Texas

Very nice park. No cell or wifi. Nice night over, but we would not make it a destination park. When we arrived just after a series of torrential rains all loops were closed but one. For a night over it was just fine. - garmp

COE Pk at W. Kerr Scott Lake This is a very nice, clean, quiet park during the week, busy on weekends. Sites are backin, w/e only, very roomy, clean bathrooms. We were across from bathhouse on # 11 & did use them a few times. There is a lake, boat launch & beach. Rate is $24. per night but with the NP Senior pass we pd $12. per nt. Stayed here for a week July 23rd - 30th. - 2GermanAmericans

Clean park. LOTS of shade. Stayed at site 29 in a small motorohome. Site was *not level* has to use all of my blocks to get close enough to level to run the fridge. Nice big site though and plenty of room between rig and fire ring. Some of the sites in this park are back in, up a hill with difficult angles. Pretty though. Clean modern bathhouse with good water pressure and temp. Firewood is not prebundled , you have to measure it yourself in a $5, $10, $15 stacker and then pay and load into your rig. With some of the sites being so difficult to get into and requiring work to get level, it would be nice if they mentioned firewood at checkin so you can get some on the way in. Oh well, now we know. Clean and dry though, burned good. Just 2 trails that we know of, small swim beach that wasn't open yet, Frisbee golf, boat ramp. Good Verizon signal. Dump site is in the gravel lot near the gatehouse with firewood and dumpsters- no sign. dump hole is about 9 inches across, make sure you don't lose your hose or a small child/pet! We would stay here again if in the area. - Little Slow Domicile

Site I used was very unlevel and not maintained well. Far from what I have grown to expect at a KOA. The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful. The wifi is good. TV is nonexistent as there is no cable and antenna TV barely works. - Tina and Pete Collins

The staff was so helpful moving things around so we could stay a few extra days while waiting for a rim for our trailer. They worked very hard to make sure we didn't have to move spaces which would have been difficult. We also were fortunate that a group of Blue Grass musicians had a meet-up there so almost every night we had the pleasure of listening to them. Wifi worked great; no cable and over the air was non-existent until the last day! Our luck! The roads are narrow and hilly - we needed to level out a bit but nothing difficult. It's a bit out of town which made sure it was nice and quiet. They have some donkeys, goats and chickens....fun to feed. People were friendly and there's so much to do in the area. We loved our unintentionally extended stay and would definitely recommend. - Catsinatrailer

You most likely will not fit your RV into the assigned spot. There are some problems that just can't be fixed...not at a reasonable price, and this campground was set up just too danged tight! I have a 25 foot 5'er. That's small. I pulled in and realized that I'd have to leave my truck blocking the road if I had the camper where it should be. So I backed up until I was almost into the lane behind me. That's where I set up. Unfortunately, even then, I couldn't leave my truck in front once unhooked. I'm just lucky they weren't full, so I parked in the spot across from me. I honestly have no idea how people cope when they're full. As it is, my camper was left by necessity in a very uneven spot, with one slider projecting over the sewer line (no way to run the pipe downhill all the way to it) and the stairs on top of some tree roots. The picnic slab was all the way at the front. I'm only giving 5 stars because the WiFi is great and the bathrooms are clean. Yes, the folks checking you in are friendly, but there's really nothing they can do about spots that are at least 4-5 feet too short and 2-3 feet too narrow. My guess is this place is really old and set up when rigs were a lot smaller. They just never kept up with the times (other than the Internet). And BTW, the pool inexplicably closes when the office does, so no chance of a quick dip after dinner. One last note-the road coming to this place is narrow. I was lucky I didn't meet anyone with an RV coming from the other direction. Yes, once set up, the park is nice if it's as empty as when I was here, what with the trees and animal farm/petting zoo and all-but obviously, I won't be back. I just don't need the hassle. - lesstraveledroad
