19 RV Parks near Glendale Springs, North Carolina
Sep 2016 - $38.00
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

Had stayed here several times 10 years or so ago. The trees were grown with a beautiful lineup of well shaped christmas type trees lining the streets. Cash only and no discounts. Site was nice back in with good cable and decent wifi. We stayed for 1 nite only and used none of the facilities except rest rooms and showers. We stayed here in a class B MH with no slides or toads. We would stay here again. - KAZIMIRA

This is one the nicest State Parks we've visited. As others have stated it's small. It's very nicely maintained. Our Camp Host was friendly. It's one of the few State Parks we've stayed at with full hook up. Gorgeous area. There is some road noise from 221 if you're near the top of the park but it wasn't terrible. Certainly the nicest bathhouse I've seen at State Park. It's an easy drive down to a nice day area by the river. We'll be back! - skiles

One of the cleanest and best maintained state parks we have ever visited. We reported an issue with the bathroom water heater and they had a crew working on it within hours.
The park staff and the camp host were friendly and helpful.
We tubed the New River twice and kayaked it while there, and also drove over to Stone Mountain State Park to hike the upper loop trail. - Red Wolf

Great state park up in the mountains: small, clean, well kept and VERY friendly staff. One thing you need to be aware of is that some of the sites that have electric are constructed backwards, meaning that the picnic table, fire pit, tent pad, etc are on the "driver-side" so if you have a trailer that can be an issue. - Robert_Gail

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

Great family CG. WE had a site on the River and the staff were VERY friendly and helpful. This is one of your back in the woods CG, once you get through the little dirt road, it opens to a BIG beautiful grassy river front CG.. The lawns are well maintained and you just pull on your site however you want, it is not graveled sites. We played in the river all day and had a great time. Will return to this CG again and again, also they have lots of shade. The river has a lot of rapids to go tubing or canoing and a playground/ volleyball court. My kids love it. Bring your bike there is a road that is in the back that has a little rocky beach, but be careful because some of the rocks are slick... Have fun! - rnacmiddleton

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

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

This is a fairly new park in the Boone area. The sites are very roomy. Lots of space between them. The bathhouse was very clean and well-maintained. There was a laundry facility and outside sink for cleaning dishes. The tent sites were very isolated. The owner will assist with hauling your gear to the remote sites. Lots of trails to explore. Stocked trout pond. No water at RV sites but, this was not a big issue for us. The owner delivered our firewood to our site. Very nice guy! We are planning to stay here again when we come to this area. The road into the campground from the main road was tight in places but still manageable. Stargazers will be in heaven here. - Henwilli

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

Another nice Corps of Engineers park. This campground is quiet with a good layout. The only problem is the poor condition of the roads. The very first turnoff has about a 4 inch drop going into a narrow, moss-covered road that gives the impression of being a service road that you really don't want to go down. If you have a long rig be prepared for curves where your trailer drops off the pavement. The road needs to be widened and repaved to accommodate wider vehicles. - Thorfinn

This was our second visit here. We stayed in site 29. Very large and roomy sites. Lots of trees and well shaded. Sites are spread out for privacy. Swimming beach is a short drive away. I only wish it was in walking distance. Bathhouse was clean and up to date. - going2mountains

Stayed here about two weeks ago - Hurricane Matthew came through so we headed to the hills! Campground is nice, however....The campsites (ours and those around us) were really unlevel...I mean really. I usually don't have a hard time setting up but it was a combination of: 1. narrow sites. 2. site was short - I emailed them and told them my TT was 34' long. 3. Most of the campground is terraced sites - High side/low side kind of thing. Some of the sites looked okay but I did notice many folks with multiple and multiple blocks used for leveling. - Sawtooth

The campground was quite packed the weekend we stayed, but our 36 foot rv with toad did fine. It's an older campground with many sites and some permanent units, but it is kept clean and tidy. It did have a pool and some play equipment for the kids (again, old). We spent most of our weekend sightseeing which gave us little time at our site. It was a good base camp for seeing the sites of Boone, Blue Ridge Parkway, etc. - Roadschool

Superb staff and a pleasant CG. Not too full during week, but told it was packed on weekends. We stayed here in our class B MH with no slides or toad. This place is a bit off the beaten path and a real KOA CG with emphasis on CG - a great getaway for families. Near Boone "attractions". No cable or antenna reception. wifi good. We changed site easily because our first sit E-1 was a bit lopsided and we have on jacks - site D-1 was more level - to where we moved. We would stay here again. - KAZIMIRA

Decent, quiet CG on lake. Sort of hilly but not bad. Site we were in was narrow, with barely room for a chair between camper & several steps down to patio. Swimming beach was closed during our visit. If using the provided grill/table/firering be prepared to travel up and down a short flight of steps (about 6-7). Would still recommend this place if your priorities are not major amenities. - ebaldy

We love camping at Bandit's Roost. The sites are large and many of them have wonderful views. As much as we love it, there are some issues though. Often the campfire smoke can get really thick and it becomes miserable to sit outside. I can deal with that though. My biggest complaint about Bandit's Roost is we always have people trying to push us off our site on the day we depart. Checkout at this campground is not till 3pm. Check in is 4pm. The people showing up for our sit always show up early and park right behind us. Sometimes they try to intimidate us into leaving early (before 3pm) which is really annoying. The attendants at the gate house should not allow this and enforce the check in time if the site is still occupied. It's too bad, because we really like this campground otherwise. - Echelon73

This is a favorite for us since we live close by and love to be on the lake, but here are the ups and downs of what you need to know. If you want lake views then you need to stay in Loop A and you will sacrifice having shade. Most shaded sites don't have views of the lake. Loop B has more sites that are shaded. Reservations as far ahead as possible is a must. Most sites are fairly level and all are gravel. All sites have picnic table, fire pit and grill, some sites have these that are below the site itself and you have to walk down steps to get to. I hate those. The bathhouses are small and old and I don't care for the showers at all. However the staff does a good job at keeping them clean. We use the restroom facilities often but never the showers. - clogg

I just bought a camper and have camped here twice. It is maintained by the COE and thus kept up and maintained very well. I have a 26' hybrid travel trailer and both sites were gravel and level. Obviously some sites are more spacious than others but no complaints here. Each site has a fire pit and picnic table. Most are partially shaded and being in the heat of summer its a must. The campground is family oriented and peaceful and bath house is clean. There are biking trails and a roped off swimming area which was nice for the kids. Management very nice and both times we have traded sites with no issues since we reserved ahead of time. Policed by the sheriffs dept and park rangers. Will be back. - Shamrock44

We stayed for a weekend in August because we wanted to check out the mountain bike trails. Our site was very spacious and flat and the price was definitely reasonable. The only slightly negative for us is that with our camper being so tiny we usually take advantage of the campground restrooms and showers and at Warrior Creek they are very far from the campsites. Wasn't a huge issue but just thought I would mention it. - Lilmissclementine

We always enjoy our stay here. Very clean and friendly staff. The bathroom we used was updated and very nice. We stayed in site 25. Most sites are very roomy. Shopping is nearby. - going2mountains

This campground is along the Yadkin River. It was the old high school, but has been taken over by the local V.F.W. It is a year round campground and has suitable facilities for persons passing through or wish to stop for a longer period. It is primarily used for the annual "Merlefest" at Wilkes Community College. We stayed there for 3 days and greatly enjoyed the concert and all the musicians performing at the campground. The VFW hosts were very accommodating and eager to please, this is their main fundraiser for the year and they work really hard. They have primitive sites, partial and full hook-up sites, pet friendly and they even have breakfast service in the main hall to eat there or to go. The facilities are dated, but kept clean and well managed. They're are other local festivals in the area in addition to Merlefest and I would definitely consider staying there again. We have already reserved our sites for next year! This campground is not the KOA, but the gentlemen that run it are the best and make your stay very warm and welcome! - Mtncampers
