12 Parks near Raleigh, North Carolina
Nov 2010 - $36.00
Just a place to park and sleep if your visiting others in town. All sites are back in, and most of the camping area is dedicated to storage with a few monthly residents. We stay here when visiting as it is safe and there are no other options anyway. - Systemsnet

I would like to clarify that this is not a campground but a camping area behind the RV Dealer. We stayed here for a month while renovations were being done to our home. It was convenient and fairly quiet. Sites are somewhat level and all sites have 30 amp only. There is a fair amount of mud around if it is rainy, and dusty if dry. But it was convenient for us and met our needs. Office staff was very accommodating. - eaglesfan

We were passing through en route to the Outer Banks and this was the only campground in the Raleigh area. I had called ahead to make sure there was a site and was told the site numbers. This is an RV dealership that has hook up sites that are mostly occupied by monthly renters. As we were pulling in, the police were at a travel trailer next to the site number we were told. After we were parked, we spoke to the resident who told us his camper was burglarized and the TV stolen, while he was away for the weekend. We did not rest easy that night. We did not see any pull though sites and we did not have cable. If there are cable sites, perhaps the monthlies are occupying them. There is a Walmart less than a mile away. - TwoNomads

What a great find! Extra large back in spaces with full hookups. No wifi or cable, but we picked up many local TV channels with our antenna. Great Verizon signal so no wifi was ok. Park staff were friendly and professional. Security came by regularly. They were preparing for the state fair so the area was freshly landscaped and everything looked great. We will stay here again for sure. - Arizona Nancy

We needed a place close to RDU airport. We weren't expecting much, but ended up enjoying our time there. According to their website, the max stay is 14 days, but if they have openings, they'll let you stay (we were there a month). Someone mentioned that the gravel made for lots of dust, but they had a water truck that went through every day of our stay. FHU at $30/day was very reasonable, especially as I ran two A/Cs non stop. - DaBlairs

The fairgrounds have about 100 sites, all back-in with full hook-ups. The campground seems to have a mild crest in the middle that gradually slopes on either side. We used site 69 (in our 42 ft coach) which seemed to drain well when it rained. The only negative I can find is that the crushed gravel lanes can create a little bit of dust from cars, etc. in dry weather. The best part about the campground is the closeness & convenience to downtown Raleigh & Cary. - Smooth Running

First time camping here although it is less than 30 minutes from home. There are just a few sites that will accommodate a popup camper. We stayed on site 22 which is large enough to work for us. Fairly quiet campground other than the airplanes coming and going into nearby RDU. Overall a nice campground if you can live without electrical hook ups. - jrackley

Nice park but not designed for campers. There are 2 maybe 3 sites that can accommodate a trailer. There are no hook ups and they close the gate at 2000 until 0600. Nice park to visit and maybe if you camp in a tent it's fine but not for a camper. No alcohol allowed in the park if that's a consideration for you. - tx_rambler

This is an old mobile home park. Interior roads are paved and there were a few low hanging trees. It is clean and well kept. Most spots are back-ins. It is overpriced for the services offered. Our site was not level. We couldn't find a dumpster for trash before leaving. - Ernie & Toni

Found the park with a Google search and called the number stating I would be there within the hour. Great service, great price, friendly and HUGE - HUGE spaces. Wish I could have stayed longer. Late arrival early departure. Thanks and will stay here again. - Jerry in Baytown

Lots of grass and trees. Paved access roads. Sites close to level. Good WiFi. No one was at the office when we arrived. - ta96silver

Rate is based on the monthly rate. The park was the best maintained park we have ever stayed at. The owner was very helpful and approachable. Everyone in the park was friendly. Dogs were on leashes and mostly picked up after. There are some permanents but there homes are well kept. I will be going back to this park. - Lesterosu

As mentioned in earlier reviews, this is a mobile home park with a few RV sites. The park was very quiet and well-maintained and there was a nice big grassy area for our dogs to run. No frills, or bells and whistles, but with the dearth of RV parks near Raleigh, it's not bad. We would stay here again. - melissab7
Dec 2009 - $15.00
Very clean. Rules are enforced. It's a mobile home park with six (6) RV sites. NO shower building or restrooms. We stayed two months and will be back. Very friendly owner and will help anyway he can to make you comfortable. Only one other RV near us during our stay. Very spacious sites with cement slab and flat gravel area for the RV. - jimdee

This park was pretty, quiet and well kept. Rangers drive by multiple times a day. Sites in loop 3 are spacious, secluded and well maintained. Has gravel sites, fairly level with easy hookups. Includes fire ring, picnic table and lamp hook. Nice large lake with boat ramps. Do note that they have dynamic pricing for camp sites and add an extra $3 a day fee to your charges which made it a bit pricey ($27 weekdays, $30 weekend). Water/elec no sewer. Dump station on my area has 2 spots so plan ahead for busy weekend. Had really fast Verizon data here (could work and stream movies), got a decent amount of antenna TV channels. I recommend site 99. Really nice size! - Katina

First time at a NC State Park. Went in a 36 ft MH with wife and 2 girls (8 and 13). Highlights below.
Check in was fast/easy. Were not made to feel welcome. Not a bad experience, just there - minimal attempt to be helpful/interactive. Could have been better from them.
Sites do not have sewer - need to use dump station. Easy and not busy.
Roads were paved and in very good shape. Paths to bathrooms were paved as well. Very nice area - lots of trees, large lake, a couple of paths. Surrounding area is nice as well. Close to Wake Forest and Raleigh. Some very nice things to do in both places - including a free museum in Raleigh that was awesome for the kids (NC Museum of Natural Sciences).
Fair use at the campground over the weekend, but during the week very few people were there. Sites are large and private. Note that our site (73) had a slope to it. We chose it since it had a view of the lake. For our equipment (36 ft) it was a hassle getting level. Had to reposition a few times and extend jacks to the limit (with blocks). The sites across from ours were nice and large and level. Would have been a better choice for larger vehicles. If the reservation site says it is not level - it is not.
Bathrooms were a bit rustic - but it is a state park. Met my expectations. Have been in others that were more modern, but it is what I expected. Usable and clean.
Overall a very nice park, nice facilities, just be careful if you have a large vehicle and need a large site. We would go there again if in the area. - T.Butter

This was our first time camping at a NC state park and we chose a good one. The sites in Holly Point Loop 3 are all large and well spaced apart with lots of natural vegetation between them for privacy and the feeling of really being in the woods. Roads were good and our site was level although the restrooms could use updating but were clean. Staff was friendly and check in was easy. There is a swim beach a short walk away with a boat ramp,restrooms and changing rooms. - 21fbrs

Leaving Rollingview State Park at Falls Lake, NC. Beautiful park, nice sized sites with W&E. Separate pump out station. Gravel sites. All have picnic table and large fire pit with cooking grate. Couple of fishing piers, playgrounds, beach, trails, clean facilities. Only a few other folks in the entire place! - 2bounders

State park, sites are spaced away from other sites. Most sites are difficult to back into and not very level. No alcohol allowed. No sewer hook-up. Peaceful, not many campers probably because it was 90+ each day. The lake is huge, you need a motorized boat to take advantage of it. Park has a marina and offers canoe, kayak and SUP rental but nothing motorized. - Bburgbrewer

$18 per night was for a packed sand pull-though site with 30-amp electric and water. Our site, #B002 in the Rolling View campground, was shaded by large trees. The site had a composite picnic table and fire ring. The campground was built when large RVs were not being made and everyone camped in pop-ups or tents. No matter which way you enter the site, the approach is steep. If the picnic table was repositioned, you might be able to position a large RV on the spacious area so that it would be level. It was pleasantly quiet during our stay even over the weekend when many families arrived. The road through the campground is asphalt and wide. The park access was unmanned when we arrived but a park ranger came around later to check us in and advise of their policies, which include no alcohol. Our site was by a stream that really rushed after the several thunderstorms we had. There are many activities available, which you can find listed on their website. The campground is centrally between Durham and Raleigh where any amenity is available. AT&T and Verizon cell signals were low but usable. We received 21 digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

We stayed for 4 nights in B50. Site was open when we arrived and was clear of trash. Site is gravel and it only required 1/2 inch to level. Power and water hook up were fine. Table and fire pit/ grill where clean as could be expected. Site is short walk to water, maybe 75 yards. It did not show any signs that other campers cut thru site to get to water. Good buffer on both sides to other sites. Site was long enough for 30 ft camper, truck and mini-van to park.
It is a short walk to the bath house. Bath house is typical parks style- could use an update, has push button shower that cuts off about the time you get soaped up, but water was hot enough.
The camp host is beside the bathhouse and appears to have been there awhile- as in a permanent site. Camper was under pinned and items build into place. Did not meet here but did see her walking large dog off lead...
Roads in and out were good, nothing strange. Dump site is large and set for vech. to pull to either side. - mj1angier

Nice campground on our way to the coast of North Carolina. Our campsite was very private, but too far from the restrooms and showers. We were at the far end of loop B and the closest restrooms weren't that great. The restrooms and showers aren't adequate for a campground this size. On the weekend I had to stand in line. Otherwise it was a good stay. I would return if I could get a site closer to the restrooms. Some sites in loop B do flood in rainy weather. - JC69

Lovely location and employees were pleasant. Sites are far apart and separated by trees. (More crowded close to the beach). Our only minor complaint was that our fire pit hadn't been cleaned in some time. We will definately return here. - SDeasy
