We have been staying here for years. Easy to get in and out. Phone service sometimes using Verizon and able to use dish for TV reception. - JERRY & ANN TARHEEL

Being from Indiana, we still haven't figured out how NC is able to offer these type of parks for such a good value. No fee for admitance, inexpensive yet excellent campsites. Lots of outdoor/nature things to do.
They could improve the number of signs getting to the park and inside of the park. The roads inside the park were easy to navigate in a motorhome. The sites were long enough for your unit and another vehicle to park without sticking out in the road. Our Verizon phones worked but our Daughter's ATT had no reception at all. The 4g was also not there.
Water and electric were both easy to hook up. The dump station was a little short on the turns but still accessable.
This park is a gem. - indiana journey

Beautiful outdoor experience. No cell phone service so expect a quiet visit. Local TV spotty but usable if you pick a central campsite near the creek. Staff friendly and helpful. Small but sufficient bathroom facilities. Deer plentiful for wildlife viewing and photos. We stayed two and then three nights the following week. - David and Ann
May 2016 - $8.00
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

We found this hidden gem not to far off the Interstate and stayed just one night. They have only a few sewer hookup sites however have a dump station on the property. Very quiet and peaceful. The owners are very welcoming and pleasant to deal with.
The site had easy access for our 53 foot rig and was reasonable level. - srfox

A wonderful rv park, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Sites are large. Great wifi; no cable.
Didn't see any playground equipment if you need that for little ones. But for those campers who just want a good place to stay, you can't beat it. Lots to do in the area. - ljohio

A clean, organized and well-managed RV Park with long level spacious sites. Interior roads and sites are hard packed gravel so there's no dust. All sites have full hookups and 50 amps. WiFi was available and most sites are open to the sky for on air channels. There's no off leash dog park, cable, pool or playground but there's plenty to see around the area. Also water pressure seemed a little low so we didn't use a pressure regulator. Laundry room was super clean. It's $1 each to wash and dry and it's on the honor system so you deposit money into a box on the wall. Bathrooms and showers were also super clean. It's apparent that the owner takes a lot of pride in this park and manages it well. It's a nice quiet campground perfect for decompressing and getting away for awhile. Owner is on the premises, available and has plans for future improvements. This is truly a gem of a park that we plan to return to in the future. - Flippitti

A beautiful privately owned park with long, level and spacious full hookup sites. The roads and sites are packed gravel so dust was not a problem. The owner was friendly and extremely accommodating. - GICUR12
Sep 2013 - $26.00
Beautiful river and mountain views. Showers were clean, and so was the porta potti. However it states "No Alcohol" and in fact it was allowed, numerous campers partying, drinking and being very loud in to the early morning hours. If its a good night sleeps you need, then look elsewhere. It also states "no pets under 15 lbs" when in fact there were dogs there over that limit. While the tent sites were nice and large, We found the campground not very family friendly, and poorly managed. We drove from Florida, over 500 miles, and will not stay there again. - crazyjag

What a joke, they have a dog policy. No dogs over 15lbs allowed. We found that out when we got there, and soon after left. Noisy whining kids and obnoxious partying and these people are worried about dogs? The staff was friendly enough but behind it was the veil of gestapo with rules for this and that. Also the staff rides around a lot on golf carts making the place noisy. It's hard to list all the things we didn't like about this park. It ranks amongst our worst. This is more of a local hangout than a serious campground. - viper-2

This is a typical mountain campground along a river. They specialize in canoe and kayak rental and dray age. They have a medium size pavilion for group functions of 35 - 40 persons. This is more of a popular local campground than a destination to plan to visit from out of state. The dirt roads and semi-grass sites are either dusty or muddy. - Roz

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

I chose this campground based on the proximity to Mt Airy. The campground is located off a frontage road off of I-74. You need to watch for the sign for the campground. The road looks like a driveway to a house. The road is long, winding and steep near the back of the campground! The campground is very family friendly and clean. We had a site at the back of the campground on a small lake/pond. A little on the tight side getting to it and backing in for our 35 foot TT, but was doable. Hookups were all in good shape. They have 3 heated pools, 2 are public, and one is for campers only. They also have a Zip Line. Perfect spot for seeing Mt Airy and Pilot Mountain. I rated it a 7 based on the road into the campground. I would go back again if in the area! - dodge guy

When we made reservations, I specifically requested a site where we could get satellite because they have no cable. We were told we'd have a nice long site in the open. When we arrived, we were told they had to switch our site because the previous guests had problems leveling. We were given their unlevel site and told we could move in 2 days when they left. Site 19 was extremely difficult to level our coach. We had to use a couple of boards to keep the wheels from lifting off the ground. We moved to site 44 after the others left but still had problems leveling and the satellite reception was spotty because of the trees. The exit road has some deep ruts and tight turns. It's unfortunate, because the office staff/owners? were extremely friendly and helpful. If we return to this area we will look for another park. - dickens

We chose this park because it was close to the Yadkin valley wine region. Check-in was easy and quick. The owners are very helpful with information on local area attractions. Wi-Fi is available, but we didn't use it. Some TV channels were available with antenna, unless you had satellite. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The shower stalls have average room for changing. Many of the sites are shaded with mature hardwood trees. All of the sites are gravel and ours required extensive leveling. Sites have fire pits and the park sells firewood. Boonville is 2 miles south of the campground and has a small grocery store. We would stay here again if we come back to the area. - MikeandDixie

We spent a couple nights here in July, and were very pleased with the place. It's an older campground, but it is very well kept and very clean. The site are large and shaded, water, sewer and cable worked fine. WiFi worked really well also.
The bath house is older, but in great working order with plenty of hot water. It also was very clean, and well lit so it's easy to find late at night.
Fire wood here is a bargain! $14 gets you a trailer like you pull behind a lawnmower completely full of wood.
The mini golf course is older, but still a lot of fun for kids and adults. The office has basic camping supplies, a game room, and a laundry area that were also very well kept.
Staff were very friendly, and were constantly in motion around the grounds, offering a hand, or cleaning.
WiFi coverage was very good throughout the park, I saw several repeaters installed on service buildings. - iflyos

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

New River is a beautiful little state park in the mountains, about 15 minutes from the quaint little town of West Jefferson. The park is small, with only about 20 total sites. A limited number of sites have full hookups and are big rig friendly. I had no problem with a long bed truck towing a 39' fifth wheel. The approaches to the park on 221 are also big rig friendly, though going slow is recommended the last few miles from Jefferson northbound on US 221.
The park has about 3 miles of very nice hiking trails, as well as a canoe launch and some day use areas along the New River. Very scenic. There is also a small museum and interpretive center at the park office that is worth a visit. The facilities are all in great shape and the bathhouse was immaculate (and heated!).
Plan to visit West Jefferson's downtown area for shopping and a number of eateries, including a nice brew pub. Also, the drive up Mt Jefferson is well worth it for some gorgeous views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A bit longer drive (one hour) will get you to Stone Mountain State Park, which is also a must see.
Overall, this is a great little park if you are looking for somewhere to just unwind and maybe do a little bit of hiking and sightseeing. - akf15e

The park is very convenient to find and get to from I-74, just be careful you find the entrance straight ahead at the intersection. No road noise from the interstate. Once in the park, check-in was easy and quick. We had a pull through site that was very narrow. All roads and spaces are gravel. Our site was a less than level: not bad, but front to rear was more than 3 degrees off.
The park is very large but quiet and orderly. - bigben

Nice place off the highway, we were on top of the hill so it was a bit breezy but I would definitely go back. When we arrived the was a little problem about our site being ready but they had it taken care of in about 10 minutes. The staff was friendly and helpful, I had realized a week later that I had left my surge protector there and they were able to locate it and ship it back to me. - fil564

We stayed two nights while touring the area. The park is easy on/off the interstate. They have trash containers throughout the park and also near the office. If arriving after hours, they have a drop box near the office. The internal roads and site are gravel. Our site did require that I add a 2 x 8 under one side to level. This is not unusual as most gravel sites need adjusting. The park is about 5 miles from beautiful Mt. Airy and the Andy Griffith (Mayberry) museum. The town has a rich history in music and if you time your visit, you might enjoy one of the many festivals. The management was very polite and helpful. There is only one bath house (two stools and one shower) and it is located near the office. There are no tables or fire rings at the sites. You will need to ask for one. There are two children's playgrounds and plenty of grass for walking the dogs. There are no trees so satellite service is good, however they have free cable. The Internet service is good except when traffic is high. They plan on adding another tower in the future. They keep the park very clean. Passport America discount is only good M-Th. It is a Good Sam park. I would stay here again. - A hitch and hop
