Beautiful state park and campground. Easy drive into park to campsites. Firewood available. Our site was level with ample space (grass) between next site. The area behind our site was wooded with a stream. We were in a mini loop with only 4 sites (40-43). Even though located near entrance of the RV sites, I highly recommend this loop due to size of sites and privacy. Most other sites did appear level. A stream runs through center of CG. Site #55 looked great as it was set apart from other sites in its loop with a stream on one side. Bathroom was always clean. Campground was quiet. Dumpsters are only located at entrance of campground, not dispersed throughout, which I had not encountered before. No wifi, no Verizon service for me, we could get a few antenna channels. Very few mosquitoes and flies, but it was only April. - boxermom14

We have camped here several times and have always had a good experience. This time was the earliest in the season that we have stayed. It was not crowded and understandably some of the facilities were still winterized. B Loop has some great RV sites with a stream running through the middle. There's easy access to the Stone Mountain Loop Trail which takes you up top and you can also walk down and check out the falls. The sites are fairly large with a nice fire ring. Very family friendly. The staff have always been friendly and helpful. I will say some of the sites are a little small for any travel trailers or fifth wheels greater than 30 feet so look at the details closely before reserving. One thing I actually like is that there is little to no cell phone service in the park. It is nice to shut that down for a weekend with family. - skiles

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

This is our second stay at Byrds Branch Campground. We were in site 13 which is maybe 1/4 mile from campground. Very large site with full hook up, quiet and partly shaded. The owners are wonderful and will do anything to make sure that you are satisfied. This is a small quiet campground that you can relax at and enjoy the foothills of North Carolina. We are coming back this summer to spend at least 2 months at this campground. - wahooo

This campground is new - grass has been planted and covered with hay. Sites are not level - the first site we were told to take left our back wheels 10" off the ground to get level. We were told to take any other site - all but one were open. We took # 11 and did not have to block to get level, but it rained that night and we were flooded. The (what they call the bathhouse) is across the street at the off/ice cream stand about 150 yards away. There are no trash cans anywhere in the campground. We would not stay here again - Walmart offers more. - Grayhound

We stopped there as a last resort. We could not find anything else in the area. The site was fine. The hookups worked. There were a lot of full-timers so it looked a little sketchy. The garbage was overflowing and smelly. Shade was available. The night was quiet and peaceful. Overall this was acceptable but don't expect luxury. If we were in the area, we would stop again but only for one night. Not nice enough for any longer. - Rambotbm

This is such a rundown Park that the Trailer Life reviewers should be embarrased with the ratings that are in the book. The Saturday evening that we were there, some of the permnant residents were having a celebration with loud music. The streets are dusty and dirty. No maintance has been done to the trees or sites in forever. It was once a nice park I'm sure as the layout is excellent. One has to laugh at the "rules" when you see the permnant residents areas and un-leashed animals - Arizona Traveler

I don't know what the other camper who reviewed this campground was smokin. Ocean view? We're 3 hours inland.This campground is right on the highway with a lot of noise. Summers it gets in the 100 degree range. Would not recommend this park. - bgsell

We arrived after dark. Office was closed and we left check payment in box by the office. We parked in the front section and there was only one other MH there. We had that section all to ourselves. It looked new to us. The back part had more sites occupied and had small modular type homes for sale. The CG is a very open grassy area, very spacious and clean, level sites. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

Our group stays here each year and we have a great time. The owner takes very good care of all his guest. There are many things to see and do in this area. It is right off the Blue Ridge park Way too. The name says it all. Odds are good you won't need your A C even in summer much.
The settings around this campground are wonderful. The back lots have a wonderful view. They take care of this campground and it really shows. His wifi is the best one can find anywhere now days. Super fast and easy to get a signal from. I do not hesitate to say he has the fastest and best internet of any campground you will ever stay at. We stream live broadcast out to the world from this campground all the time with no issues. Hard to find another place you can do that from. Still kind of iffy on that cell phone service. You are back in the woods a bit so what would one expect right ?
All in all, it really is one of the best kept campgrounds you will find and the owner takes care of his guest. After that the rest just falls in place for you. Going on 5 years we have visited. We love it and you will too. - jturner9

Great location right off Blue Ridge Pkwy! Plan to camp here again. - D Kearns

We stayed 5 nights in our 30' TT. We arrived as Hurricane Mathew was hitting NC. Campground is right beside New River T NC/VA boarder. Drive is a steep but short single car entrance. Office on right, you need to pull past it and turn right to park to check in. We were meet as we got out of care by owner or manager. Checking was quick, we had our choice of re sites because only few camper. It was rainy an owner advised backing in due to wet ground. Larger sites are in front of bathhouse, 30 yard from river. Sites have gravel pad but larger campers may have problems with tow vehicles having space. We used empty space beside us to park. Site do slope towards river and my require extra blocks in front.
Water and power only. Dump site near permit sites, may require some wait during busy times. Power was 30 amps and was stable. Water pressure fine. Tables and fire pits- no grills. Bath house is rustic but has instant hot water so does not run out. Lots are 50/50 shaded.
No wifi but Version was 2 bars LTE or 3G. Did not really check out store. They do have 4 primitive cabins to rent
After 1st night there were only 1-2 campers in campgrounds. It is a good base camp for day trips to Boone, West Jefferson, Galax...
I could see this place rocking hard in summer with younger folks rafting. I would not cal this a "Glamping" place but will come back again. - mj1angier

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 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

We stayed here for the Autumn Leaves Festival in Mt. Airy. It is a pretty little campground. It was off-season so none of the campground amenities we open, but there were a couple of pools and a zip line that I remember. The staff was very nice and helpful. The entrance into the campground is a bit tight and winding. We stayed in the back against the pond. It was a tight fit with our 34' camper behind my crew cab truck but we got it in there despite a steep hill on the other side of the road from our site. The back of the camper was almost even with the timbers that made the pad but it was fine. There are a lot of full timers in there but they seemed nice. The site was gravel and fairly level. The hookups were located well and worked as they should. We had a picnic table and a fire pit in the site and access to the pond. There were some folks next to us that were fishing but I didn't see one get caught. It's a nice little place to stay. If you have a big rig or a long camper, it will be tight but it can be done. I can see me staying here again. - archerspoon

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

The staff was very nice. Getting out was a challenge, as the exit route was very narrow. They did not have cable and even though they claimed to have WiFi, it did not work. - Farsaci
Jun 2016 - $45.00
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
