15 RV Parks near Sparta, North Carolina

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

If you are willing to boondock, the NPS campground on the Blue Ridge Parkway is a good bet for you. The campground has a few "reserve ahead" sites and a few first come, first served sites. We were there at the start of the long July 4 weekend, and did not have a problem finding a site. About half of the sites were in use. Our site was mostly level, and easy to back into. The camp host was very helpful. There is a 1 mile (each way) hike from the campground through woods and meadows to the Beringer Cabin. There is a much shorter (though less interesting) drive to the cabin. - ShoreXplorers

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

Some Mountain had extremely friendly staff and level, large sites. There is a lot of hiking and trout fishing available but not much else. The power was also so low, mostly 110 or less, that my surge suppressor kept disconnecting. Nice place for a quick overnight or two but not recommended for longer stay. - WayBro

Not much to add except cell service: No AT&T service at all in this area. Verizon is weak. We had 1 bar of 1x Extended but when we turned on our weBoost cell signal booster we were able to get 3bars of LTE 5G. - Robert_Gail

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

Another wonderful owner operated campground. Immaculately clean. Large level gravel sites. Ours was a pull through. Area was wonderful to visit. Owner had several planned out day trips to make on Blue Ridge parkway, and in Town of Galax in great detail, along with area family owned and operated restaurants (which were all excellent). Campground is off the highway a bit, but well worth the drive. No road noise. - Bugz

Stayed here for a month areal clean and well maintained park. The owner is an outstanding host. We were in site 7 which is quite large and roomy. The weather here is mostly light jacket type which makes for a cool night . - jamie1

This is one the nicest State Parks we've visited. As others have stated it's small. It's very nicely maintained. Our Camp Host was friendly. It's one of the few State Parks we've stayed at with full hook up. Gorgeous area. There is some road noise from 221 if you're near the top of the park but it wasn't terrible. Certainly the nicest bathhouse I've seen at State Park. It's an easy drive down to a nice day area by the river. We'll be back! - skiles

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

One you come here you won't stop coming here! Twin Rivers is a beautiful campground. Although the cell phone service is little to none, and there is limited wifi, the things to do are endless! You can kayak, tube, bike, or walk down to where the south and north fork of the new river meet! We have been many times and will continue to go!
The view that you get at any of the sites are breathtaking and never get old. This campground is very family friendly. The staff is wonderful!!! - Kaylee1

Right on the river. Great place to tent camp. Bring tubes (for the river). Lots offer some shade. Sites are grass and feature a picnic table. - Zomb

Twin Rivers is just awesome for families, for relaxing and enjoying nature. The river is great for canoeing, kayaking, tubing, wading and fishing. Perfect for kids. Full on weekends, quiet and peaceful on weekdays. The managers are fantastic folks and go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and comfortable. - marshavon

If it was paved it gets a 10. Lovely park. Gravel road is just a bit dusty, but the sites have rock that is not, so stuff stays clean. Beautiful setting and a cute little town. The draw here for us was the rails to trails bike trail just across the street. Awesome riding for just about anyone from the leisure cruiser to the cycle cross cyclist looking for a workout. I highly recommend this park. The owner is super and he runs a well groomed place. If you have kids and they like the outdoors they will love it. They can bike, hike, fish explore, and there is a riverside park across the street with a playground. We booked a week and already booked another week as we will be passing through the area again. Our sprint cellphones worked as did our AT&T hotspot and satellite. - Jake21

The campground owners make a point to get to know the campers and the friendly atmosphere is what brings us back year after year. We enjoy riding our bikes on the trail and just sitting outside in the shade of the mountains in this quiet campground. Full hookups, neat and appealing landscape and hiking areas leading to hillside swings all add up to a nice place to relax. The mountains are beautiful in full color. We will return. - busyteach

Love Virginia, and, totally in love with Fries, Galax and Fries New River RV Park. Follow the directions on their website - roads are narrow & twisty but doable for Class A's. This is a quaint, small, immaculately maintained, well thought out, just about perfect place to rest, refresh, and get back in touch with whats important in life. We were in a full service site (30 amp) that was parallel to a small creek which was just perfect for a Class B with a sliding door - heaven! They offer cable TV, WiFi, and a bathhouse as welcoming as the one you have at home. The New River Bike Trail is right across the street and if you forgot your bike they have one for you. From the time you check in at their picturesque office cottage, sit a spell in their rockers, chat about the area, you'll know you are "home". - Breezy2

Stayed for 10 days in 42 ft. coach. Park is actually easy walking distance to Blueridge Parkway & an easy entrance to gate from the Parkway. Utilities are good, but wi-fi a little sketchy, as are most rv parks. They do have a weekly rate of $235 & monthly rate of $450 + electric. Stayed in newly developed section which consists of 4 pull-thrus (all packed gravel), front of pull-thru has a bit of forward slant, so if you have some blocks, you will be fine. Pull-thrus will easily accomodate a 45 footer + tow. Closest Walmart is in West Jefferson & if you want to go to Boone, we found the quickest way via Parkway. Also, no problems getting satellite tv. One last thing....entrance to park is a bit on the snug side, so take it nice & slow to avoid scratches on your coach or trailer. Mgt. should really consider cutting back some of the shrubbery. - Smooth Running

Had stayed here several times 10 years or so ago. The trees were grown with a beautiful lineup of well shaped christmas type trees lining the streets. Cash only and no discounts. Site was nice back in with good cable and decent wifi. We stayed for 1 nite only and used none of the facilities except rest rooms and showers. We stayed here in a class B MH with no slides or toads. We would stay here again. - KAZIMIRA

This is a small, rural campground in what appears to be family farmland. The owners are very nice and give you their cellphone if you need anything.
The office is across the road up on a hill. If you don't plan to unhook the tow and have called ahead for a reservation, ask for the space number and go ahead and park in it. Then walk up the hill to check in and pay.
We spent one night in one of their five level, gravel, FHU PTs. There are no amenities other than wifi and the rate reflects that. We were pleased with the value and stayed here instead of the nearby Walmart for a quick overnight en route. - McGarrert50

A delight to deal with the owner. The small park is pristine. Our site was level. W/s/e all worked well. The owner's wife is an author. Check out her books when you are there. - Skipp

It's not often we rate campgrounds a 10, but Byrd's Branch definitely rates up there! The owners are friendly and gracious, the residents of the area are passionate about their town and trails, and the campground is rural, quiet, neatly kept and well run. Our site had full hookups, a nice picnic table, fire ring and we were near a little creek. Ice cream stand, wooded trails, wineries, what else could you want? Oh, and Verizon service was strong. We will definitely be back! - dbcordello

My husband and I are new camper owners, so this was our first real experience in our little travel trailer. We loved this park and wished we'd had more time to spend here. Our site was clean and well-maintained and we loved that it was pull-through. The sites were fairly close but we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. There had been some rain prior to our arrival, so there were some mosquitoes under the trees. We only had water and electric hookups so we used the bath house for showers. It was very clean and the employees we met there were very friendly. There was a nice big meadow nearby with lots of room for kids to run around and play. The first night, the rangers had a community campfire with s'mores and came around to personally invite everyone to join in. It was a beautiful park and a wonderful experience. - CaptainCurls

Beautiful wooded shady campground with many open non-reserved sites the whole three days we were there. If you reserve a specific site in advance be careful which site you choose - most are not level or big rig friendly. Could also be a challenge driving up the winding mountainous road - check in advance. Sites have electric & water - TV reception spotty. Bring all your supplies - nothing nearby. The park itself, the hiking trails, the Appalachian Trail and of course the wild ponies are more than enough reason to make the trip up the mountain - heaven on earth! - Breezy2
