When we checked in, the guy checking us in told us that this was the best campground in all of North Carolina. It may have been a bit of hyperbole, but it is a very, very good campground. Sites in the B loop have electric and water, level asphalt parking pads, level gravel tent pads (that have been raked), and are very spacious. All of the B loop sites either back onto a forest or a creek. While we were there in late October, they were having hot water problems because of an early frost. Our site had a water leak, probably because of the same early frost. AT&T didn't work at all, and Verizon was hit and miss. We didn't have any OTA TV reception, but our satellite radio worked. Our site (59) was in full shade from the mountain for almost the entire day. We didn't get sun until about 5 pm. Earlier in the season, it would have more sun. We picked the campground because of its proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway, but the state park is a destination on its own. - AnnP

We just love this campground for all the wonderful trails, waterfalls, sliding rock and cool swimming holes. We reserved site #49 and it long enough for my 35' travel trailer, two F250 trucks and a minivan parked in front of it. The sites on the B-loop are EW and spaced apart. Some sites are new the creek that runs though the B-loop. NC State parks added an access road at the other end of the main campground road to allow after hours access only to the campground after the main park entrance is locked. - NC RV Travler

2nd visit here. Great place to camp with your dog. We were in site 57 which was close to a trail that runs along the creek. Widows Creek Falls was a cool place to visit in the park with temps in the 90s at the campground. - jrackley

Hidden gem for a peaceful getaway. We stayed in site 7 at the which backs up to farmland. Creek behind us. Nice firepit area, small clean campground. No pool or kids activities but we wanted peace and quiet and this was the perfect place. Owners are super nice. Small town but some nice restaurants and many wineries to tour in the area. - this is us

Stayed while passing through town after a chaotic few days in Myrtle Beach. Just what we needed. Peaceful, clean and quiet. Family owned and operated. Only a few spaces with a lot of room and it seemed most were passing through as well. Owners stayed past closing to welcome us and dropped off firewood. Lacks ammeneties so I wouldn't plan to stay for more than a few days unless you are visiting for a specific reason. Would definetly stay again. - Nick Maddaloni

We stayed here for 5 nights and would return. We thought that our site, #7, was the best one in the campground: large and private with lots of trees. The friendly owners have excellent lists of all local restaurants and hiking trails and suggestions for activities. We walked to Carter Falls and Grassy Creek Winery and recommend both. Elkin is a fun town to visit. Don't miss the food at the brew pub 222 Main. - NCRoamers

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

Friendly helpful owners, but none of the sites have a fire ring, picnic table or any trees/shade. - Gapch1024

Would have rated it a 10-but the hubby really needs his sports channels-no cable tv-reception with antenna. Needs things for kids to do-didn't see many children around. Very quiet and clean. Definitely has a breeze going on in this CG. Recommend awnings be tied down. Would be really nice if the Resort next door would share that golf course with this CG. Hubby was a little disappointed about that. The map showed a golf course next to this CG. Matter of fact, never seen anyone from the other resort using it. Hookups are approx. 2-3 feet from each other-recommend extra sewer/water/ and electric hook up. Sites are gravel with minimal leveling required. Stayed in pull thru behind office. Site long enough for tow dolly/Class C/ Kia with extra room. Well spaced from neighbors. Owner has daytrip information with directions-found that to be a nice touch. Nice CG. - n2camping

I really liked this place. Wonderful onsite host. We stayed 2 nights on our way to Maine, in a pull thru, out behind the office. Great views of the forested ridges in a rolling pasture environment. Nice restroom/shower/laundry. Free Bluegrass music everyday noon to 4pm with great local musicians. Fiddlers, banjos, mandolins, standings bass, flute, etc. Just wonderful. This place can be windy, be sure to tie down your awnings! - Eric H

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

When we arrived and was told it was $45 a night I was shocked and was expecting this place to be nicer than a beautiful new state park campground. The road is horrible! Very tight with tight curves and pot holes. The sites are very uneven and right next to long term campers with all there junk. We moved to another campground the next morning. I wouldn't have minded it so much if the price was more reasonable. The owners are very nice. - rcannon440

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 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 only negative comment I have is that the turn off of the main road is poorly marked - I missed it and had to make a u-turn. Check-in was fast and easy. As promised, the site was long enough that I didn't have to unhook just for one night. All utilities worked fine. It is worth the short trip off of I 77 or I 74. Very nice CG. - jnateg

Check in was quick and easy. I like how they terraced the camp sites, it is a very nice camp ground with level, clean sites. The 50 amp power was good, water pressure and sewer were good. Our cable TV channels were fuzzy. Verizon cell service had 4 bars. Road noise wasn't bad we were in a lower level site 42. I definitely would come here again. - Diablo

Nice staff. New area does not have cable yet, which we did not need anyway. Great for a one night stay to see Mt. Airy. We would stay again if in the area. - PamelaA

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 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
