1 Park near Roaring Gap, North Carolina
May 2015 - $44.00
The park is not overly easy to find due to lack of signage outside the park, but once you get there it's a real beauty. The park and grounds, including the campground, are well kept up and clean. The camper check-in building is right on the way in so it's easy to get to, but the road is one-way, so very long rigs may have some difficulty making the right turn to get back on the road that leads to the campground after check-in. Also be advised that once the check-in closes the park gate is locked, so be sure to check the closing time and get there in advance of that time.
The campground is very clean and easy to navigate. Bathrooms have all been recently remodeled and are clean and well maintained. All the spots are in great shape and should not require a great deal of leveling. Electrical and water service are close in all spots that I looked at, and all were in excellent shape. Park staff are helpful and friendly and signage inside the park is well done. Garbage dumpsters and dump station are located at the entrance of the park, but should not impede traffic flow unless there are a large number of vehicles waiting. Firewood can be purchased at check-in or in the campground during certain times. The wood was $5 a bundle and was excellent quality when we visited. We stayed in a spot right on the stream that runs through the campground and it was very, very scenic. The campground accommodates large rigs without a lot of trouble, but not all spots are sized for larger units.
The park itself is amazing with lots to do (hiking, bird watching, historical buildings, and visitors center.) The mountain hike is well worth the effort and there are multiple waterfalls to see as well. - WrongWayRandall

A hidden jewel in NC. Fall colors were gorgeous. Large level sites and all have fire rings and plenty of scenic views. We were in site 56 which is on the stream. The park is immaculate and the park rangers patrol the park. The bathrooms are new and clean. It is a very quiet and peaceful park. My husband fished in the trout streams. The Hutchinson Homestead is not to be missed. One of my very favorite state parks! - budolemiss

Camped on site 66 which is in the open part of the campground. Site was gravel an pretty level. Showers were small but clean an modern. Campground was pretty full on the weekend but pretty empty by Tuesday. No cell service or over the air TV but Dish Tailgater worked well with a good view to the south. Local wineries are very good. Had a very nice meal and bottle of wine at Elk Creek vineyard. Pretty convenient to Elkin. Hike to the top of Stone mountain is pretty steep but the views are well worth it. - Crottys
