We camped here for a weekend... it was the 3rd time we have used one of the campsites at Falls Lake. During winter months, Rolling View is the only campsite open at Falls Lake. We love the super spacious and wooded campsites, with plenty of trees and natural beauty. Nice hiking trails right here in the campsite that lead to Falls Lake, and right outside the entrance to the park is access to the "Mountain to Sea Trail". The rangers are very helpful... this is a really nice place to camp and it is inexpensive. We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Motorhome.

There is a Food Lion within 1 mile of the intersection of Baptist Rd. and Rt 98. While camping at Falls Lake, make sure to do some hiking on the "Mountain to Sea" trail. The trail head is located just outside the entrance gate.

Beautiful park. Our spot, #26, fit our 42.5 5th wheel no problem. It was also beautifully situated near the water and on the corner of the loop, so extra space. Picnic table with lantern hanger at each site. Also, we were happy to find a anchored chain in the middle of the patio area that we could hook our dog to without her getting tangled. No sewer, but it was worth the view and the peace and quiet. We would definitely stay there again. We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

If this park had sewer at each site it would get a 10 from us. Beautiful site with a fabulous view of the lake. It was off season, so very quiet and not crowded. Free dump station is easy to use. We spent five nights here while enjoying Thanksgiving with our daughter and new son-in-law. We will be back for future stays. We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nicely maintained campground with friendly, helpful staff. We arrived immediately after a period of unusually heavy rain. Beach and boat launch were closed, but this campground was high and dry. Some (few) sites are satellite-friendly. We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stay here at least twice a year while visiting family in Durham. It's an average NC state park. Big sites with water and electric - loops A and B. Loop C no hookups. Bathhouses could use a good scrubbing. Lake was flooded and beach was closed while we were here this trip. Sites are gravel and some uneven. Most sites are heavily wooded. Big Rigs beware - turn around in loop A is tight. Watch out for ticks! We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Motorhome.

Leaving Rollingview State Park at Falls Lake, NC. Beautiful park, nice sized sites with W&E. Separate pump out station. Gravel sites. All have picnic table and large fire pit with cooking grate. Couple of fishing piers, playgrounds, beach, trails, clean facilities. Only a few other folks in the entire place! We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Motorhome.

State park, sites are spaced away from other sites. Most sites are difficult to back into and not very level. No alcohol allowed. No sewer hook-up. Peaceful, not many campers probably because it was 90+ each day. The lake is huge, you need a motorized boat to take advantage of it. Park has a marina and offers canoe, kayak and SUP rental but nothing motorized. We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

$18 per night was for a packed sand pull-though site with 30-amp electric and water. Our site, #B002 in the Rolling View campground, was shaded by large trees. The site had a composite picnic table and fire ring. The campground was built when large RVs were not being made and everyone camped in pop-ups or tents. No matter which way you enter the site, the approach is steep. If the picnic table was repositioned, you might be able to position a large RV on the spacious area so that it would be level. It was pleasantly quiet during our stay even over the weekend when many families arrived. The road through the campground is asphalt and wide. The park access was unmanned when we arrived but a park ranger came around later to check us in and advise of their policies, which include no alcohol. Our site was by a stream that really rushed after the several thunderstorms we had. There are many activities available, which you can find listed on their website. The campground is centrally between Durham and Raleigh where any amenity is available. AT&T and Verizon cell signals were low but usable. We received 21 digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Motorhome.

Two weeks before we arrived, this park had problems with the electricity on our site. Someone replaced the receptacle. They connected the hot wire to the ground plug. I was lucky I had a surge guard that showed problems. I never connected my RV to power until the park maintenance fixed the problem. He first thought the neutral and hot were reversed and switched those sides. I retested and found the problem. There is no telling if anyone before me damaged their RV. The lots are spacious and shady. Site surface was asphalt and features a fire ring and picnic table. We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park was full during our stay due to the NC State Fair. This was a first for us. The park is now open 24 hours which is a little confusing, but the main gate is no longer locked at dark but the campground gates are. We didn't venture out after dark but were told we could. The park is nice, clean, and quiet. But, it is 8 miles from Highway 98 at Neal Middle School on Baptist Rd with little markings. I am told due to restructuring of park operations, Rollingview may be the only park open in non-summer months for that district. Regardless, Rollingview is a good park to stay in.

Tips for other Campers:

If you need groceries, ice, drinks, or gas then stop at the Food Lion about 2 miles from Baptist Rd on Hwy 98. Otherwise, it is 20 miles round trip to get these things the park if you don't. Foodlion is the closest. Rollingview to Raleigh is about 20-30 minutes.

We've always been big fans of the NC State Parks system, and we will continue to use them. It's unfortunate that budget cuts are really noticeable. The cleanliness of the bathhouses is the lowest I've ever seen at this park. I would have had to have been very desperate to use the showers. Some of the sites no longer have gravel covering them as weeds have taken over. That said, the sites are very generous in size and private. We had a great time, and we will camp here again. We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A very nice place to stay. Nestled in the woods, just a short walk down to the lake. We got fooled by our GPS when approaching, luckily my wife glanced a sign reading "Rolling View". Following for about 10 miles we finally found the entrance to the park. Nobody in the rangers office. However, the campground's map showed our reserved site. It turned out to be a bit narrow but nicely arranged staircase to a private picnic area. Very quiet and if there would have been other campers, we still would have had a lot of privacy since the sites are well apart from each other with trees and shrubs in between. There is no Wi-Fi or cable here and no chance to catch any signals under the tree canopies. Definitely worth coming back and staying again. We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A great place to "get away from it all". Very secluded, private sites amidst tall trees and thick foliage. Very spacious and level sites, all well maintained. Wide roads for easy maneuverability. Nice beach areas with swing sets. Not the most friendly or helpful staff at the entrance. They failed to give us a campground map, then handed us one sullenly (no apology) when we returned to get it. Note that what appear to be "waterfront" sites may not have a view due to thick trees between the site and the water. No Wi-Fi or cable, which is either a detriment or a good opportunity to truly "disconnect" from the modern world! We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Have traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and have stayed in many state parks and this is the ONLY one we've ever encountered where the gates are LOCKED at 6PM or 8PM..depending in the time of year. When we questioned the reasons for this bizzare rule, we told told it was for "security" purposes! This is a huge lake and the camping area is easily accessible by boat. Campers wanting to be outside the park after the curfew hours, either drive to the gate and leave their vehicle unattended, ripe for theives... or arrange to be picked up and WALK in the dark back to their campsite, which for senior citizens is a hazardous 1/2 mile or more hike. We know of many campers who are avoiding this park because of these rules..causing lost revenue for the state. We will not be coming back unless the rules are changed. We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Motorhome.
