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 at Raccoon Holler Campground 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 at Raccoon Holler Campground 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 at Raccoon Holler Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful park with mature trees and impeccable landscaping. Underground utilities and no street lights. We did feel it would be difficult to arrive late because of darkness. It is true that many of the RV sites are occupied by seasonal RV's, but because of our late (in the year) visit, we felt very comfortable. Also, we were told that there is most often room for the daily and weekend visitors. Not much cellphone signal for us. Bathrooms very clean. Staff very kind to us. We definitely will return.

Our first trip here this weekend was great. Beautiful campground, clean, quiet and friendly neighbors. The campground is populated mostly with seasonal campers. Everyone we met was extremely friendly, and loved our dogs! Rate was $28/ night + $2/ night for AC use. I felt the rate was reasonable for the park. We will definitely camp here again. If I was in the market to set up in as a seasonal camper, Racoon Hollar would be at the top of my list. We camped at Raccoon Holler Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Good park: the restrooms are clean, and the grounds are very well kept. Sites around site 135, are on a gravel lane and tend to get very dusty with traffic. We camped at Raccoon Holler Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a clean park. Some sites not very level. Ours dropped off on both sides, so had to make sure we were right in the middle. Also a sewer smell around the site. They charge $2 extra per night if a camper wants to use air conditioning. My main complaint was although we made reservations as a club, we were still scattered around the campground. They also seem to have a real hangup about their paper vehicle passes. It has to be turned in when one leaves. The guy in the golf cart will chase a vehicle down if he doesn't see the placard immediately. I would go back if the club wanted to, but probably wouldn't by myself.

This is a nice park, but unfortunately, it seemed that most of the good sites (shade, size) accommodate long term seasonal campers. The rest are kind of small and not shady. The 'regulars' aren't very friendly and I got the impression that weekenders were intruding. I'll probably stay here again, but only because of family in the area.

This park has many seasonal campers on large sites, most with decks, sheds and decorative items arranged around the site. None were junky, and the entire park was well-kept. We told them we had a dog with us, and their only comment was to be sure and pick up after him. We were not charged extra. Our site was not level, and required three blocks under each tire on one side to get close to level. None of the other sites looked much better. There was Wi-Fi in the park, but not at our site, which they told us on check in. This was not a problem for us since we have cellular Internet service. Bathrooms and showers were clean.

Great level sites, roads paved, shade, beautiful view right from camper. Great place to camp; not much to do for children, but we aren't children. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful and other campers friendly. Campground was quiet and peaceful. Would rate a 10 but no wi-fi at site. We will be back next year.

This was our first time camping here and we had another couple with us in their travel trailer. The hosts helped make our stay very nice and were very helpful giving instructions to places we wanted to go. It was conveniently located to the beautiful Frescos, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Boone, and other wonderful mountain locations to visit. The campground was quiet, friendly, and extremely clean. It was more than we expected. We will definitely go there again and highly recommend it to others. Everyone we met there was very friendly. It was a less than full weekend because it was the weekend before they were closing for the winter and they made apologies for the movement/storage of seasonal trailers, but we found the campground in great shape and everyone there was quite friendly.

Nice grounds, great lake with a view. But if you show up with a dog (any size or breed) you simply are not welcome. Management tries to accommodate visitors but has mostly seasonal sites. The seasonal guests sort of write their own rules, leaving both unhappy seasonal and visiting guests. We've traveled and camped all over this country never seen anything like it. No second chances here, this was out of control. We camped at Raccoon Holler Campground in a Motorhome.

It is a nice park but somewhat isolated. There are no restaurants, etc. close by. The park was on the Blue Ridge with easy access, but owners didn't tell us, we found out on our own. The laundry and restrooms were clean. There were quite a few full timers, but there was plenty of space. The WIFI would not work at all...office said it was only in their location where it worked.

Sorry I couldn't rate this higher, but they charged a dinner guest $5 to visit for 3 hours. After I complained, I was refunded the money. It is supposed to be that amount for an overnight guest and $2 for a visitor. Since I travel alone and rates are based on 2 people, I don't think this is fair. Most of the sites are pretty and shaded; the pond is a nice place to fish and the Blue Ridge Parkway is only 50 yards away. Overall it is a good park and I would stay there again.
