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

The park is nice, sites are spacious with a large tent pad/patio, but not much shade. The roads are narrow and two ways. Our site pitched heavily to one side making it hard to level side to side (thank goodness for automatic jacks). It was quiet. We had no cell or internet service. The trails were well marked and well maintained. There is a Dollar General about 2 miles from the park. - winnie1

Only problem was push button shower only ran for 6 seconds. This should be adjusted to at least 30 seconds to allow hair washing. - Breezy2011

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this park. Had trouble finding our site after hours because the signs only face one direction, which is opposite from the night access. Surprisingly large level sites. Ours backed up to running water and was very nice. Lots to do in park. Plenty of hiking and climbing. Great value for the money. Very friendly staff, and camp hosts kept the sites impeccably clean. Cell signal came and went. Would definitely stay here again! - JJPP17

I agree with what others have said about this wonderful, out in the country campground. We woke up to gently mooing cows. Sites are large and level. Laundry and restrooms are clean polished hardwood floors are a welcome treat. Only one shower in women's room and probably same in men's but it was large and nicely tiled. Hosts are friendly and helpful. they have a few permanent "tiny" homes on some of the sites which are attractive. I would have given it a 10 but sites lacked picnic tables and all sites are open with no trees at all in the campground. I would come back here any day. - Trainspotter

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

We visited New River State Park with five other families for Easter Weekend. Our group included travel trailers and tents. The campground was well maintained and the facilities were wonderful. The bathrooms were clean and warm. The showers had good pressure and hot water. Out site had full utilities and worked well. The campground host was friendly and helpful. The campground sits atop a hill and is a distance from the New River. You can drive or hike to the river. The hike is not too steep, but is about a mile. The Hickory and River Run trails make a nice loop that starts and ends near the park office. The There is a small museum/gift shop located near the campground that is worth a visit. Our only concern was the one way direction of the road made pulling into our site (19) rather difficult. We needed to go in the other direction to navigate the turn. Overall, we truly enjoyed our visit and the proximity to other activities. We will return. - dmaerz

The park was nearly empty when we were there...out of 20 campsites, only one other one was occupied. But it felt safe and we loved our time here. Spent 4 days just being outside, exploring the park and trails, and enjoying a little solitude in nature. No playground for kids, but they had fun exploring the surrounding woods. The park office has a small museum about the area that's entertaining and informative. The only drawbacks were no laundry facilities and the long drive into town for groceries. - lg_77

We live close by to this park and frequently go here for the night for some fun family time. This park is a gem as far as state parks are concerned. The sites are well maintained and very spacious. Each site offers a large patio area with a picnic table and a fire ring. The park itself is lovely and a great option for those looking for relaxing hikes, canoeing, and fishing. I can't think of anywhere else that offers more for your money. - McNeills

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

Fries (freeze) is a tiny town on the New River. The roads to get to the RV park are a bit narrow but we made it fine with a 45' MH and toad. This park is small, and as others have said, beautifully landscaped. There is a stream that runs through the park, and most sites are on the stream. Some sites have decks and others have terracing. All have a swing or a swing nearby. The sites are dark gravel but it is large enough that it isn't attracted to the bottom of your feet. The layout of the park is quite unusual which actually affords more privacy. Some sites are nose to tail and others have more separation. Except for a buddy site, none of the sites are right next to each other. Good job! The park is a bit off the beaten track and, as expected, Verizon coverage is low with 1x and occasionally 3g 1bar. We were able to get texts and minimal phone coverage using our extender. There is a US Cellular tower in Fries so I assume that would work fine. Luckily, the WiFi works great. It slows down periodically and will kick you off after a long while but for the most part we had no problems. DirecTV satellite worked fine in our location. The water pressure is low at 20-25 PSI. For the most part, it is very quiet except for the occasional dog's bark or shooting of firearms (yep, guess that's normal in these here parts). The owners are wonderful - even sharing fresh homemade muffins when you arrive (and they were delicious!). As for payment, they take credit cards for the deposit and cash or check for the balance. The New River bike trail is just across Main street. It is a fairly flat trail that follows the New River. The trail itself is fine gravel, and there is some shade. It was great to have a nice trail so close by. We really enjoyed our time here. It's one of those places to "chillax" sitting outside listening to the creek. Our lounge chairs got plenty of use! - Free

Beautiful, quiet place to relax. The stream flowed right outside our door, with room for the dogs to get a little exercise on their leash. Reservations are a little difficult as you have to leave a message and the town is nothing much to speak of, but I would go again to wind down. - Sawbonz

This is a beautiful park. A stream runs throughout it and the landscaping is gorgeous. WiFi, TV worked great. Bike trail nearby. We ate at the local restaurant, great food and price. The owner has done a GREAT job. - Mkcord

This was our first visit to Raccoon Holler in a 40ft Motorhome. Overall, the campsites seemed well kept, roads are paved, sites are gravel. This campground is at about 3000 ft elevation. We had nice breeezes in the evenings as we sat on top of the mountain. Our campsite was next to a road outside of the campground but traffic was not a problem as there is not much traffic. Each site had a picnic table. Sites are not level so definitely plan on using blocks. We called to confirm which highway to travel to the park. We traveled Hwy 16 which was basically a good 2 lane road but most of it did not have any shoulder. Definitely would return. - User1828

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

We stayed here overnight on our way to Florida and again on our way home. This is a very nice small, clean campground. Very easy to pull in and set up. The friendly owners came to our campsite both times to sign us in without us having to go to the office. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area. - Cindy Karnes

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
