We arrived late in the day at the beginning of a weekend. The road in was narrow and right next to the river. A little scary for the passenger when meeting an outgoing car. Fortunately the road was not busy that time of day. Campground was almost full; think we got the last site because someone's reservation was not honored. Since we arrived after hours had to find someone to check in. We were in a pull-thru spot; so did not have to unhook our tow. Lots of weekend campers and sites were very close together. We camped at Riverside Campground in a Motorhome.

Good for an overnight stop. Campground had lots of activities for families, with a pool, playground, volleyball court, and stage where Karaoke was going on. Right next to river, so fishing was possible.

Very nice owners. Older campground right by the river...tenting mostly near the river itself. RV sites are mostly back up with a lot of permanents or seasonal folks. Pretty tight quarters. One of the seasonal folk's off leash dog came out after ours. Pool, playground, volley ball set up for kids. Game room that was very busy with various ages. Didn't use the restrooms or showers. A bit of a trip from the interstate and the country roads can be a challenge in a large motorhome. We are 40' with a toad. We camped at Riverside Campground in a Motorhome.

It is out from town a few miles and the turn off US19 is really a tight right from town. The road back to the campground is narrow and right next to the river - a little scary on the passenger's side if you have to pass a car going out. The owners are very nice and helpful, and making improvements all the time. Its nice next to the river and they said the fishing is pretty good early in the year. We got 1 OTA TV station the quality was so bad we didn't watch it. No cable or WIFI, but AT&T phone and MYFI was good. All utilities worked well. There is plenty to do and see and places to eat in town. They provide you maps of anything and everything you could want to do in the area. We camped at Riverside Campground in a Motorhome.

We loved our stay here & management was helpful & friendly. Location is great, we had a riverfront site for our week long stay. There are many seasonal trailers here and they are reasonably neat & tidy. The new owner here has come in after the place had been closed for a time and has done a good job of turning the place around. There was entertainment here on the weekend & lots of family's having fun. We plan on returning next year because of its proximity to the town of abingdon, great little town! We camped at Riverside Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The rate quoted is Passport America rate. Glad we did not have to pay more. This place is WAY back a very narrow winding road. Most of the sites look to be permanent residents. A few are run down but most look well kept. Only staying one night. Sure would not go out of my way to return. Store very limited - maybe because near end of season.

Our one-night stay was just okay. There are several "scary" permanent residents. This campground is very soggy when it rains and the first site we were issued was much too muddy. We asked for a river side spot and was told we could move to the one that was remaining. The ASPCA should check into several pet owners at this place. The surroundings are nice, with the river and the mountains. There is no WiFi and no cable. It is advertised as being in Abingdon, but a pretty good distance from the town. We probably would not stay here again. We camped at Riverside Campground in a Motorhome.

This is the first time I've stayed at Riverside Campground in Abingdon. This was the nastiest place I'd ever seen. The bath rooms were terrible, didn't look like they had been cleaned since the park was built. The showers were nasty, even in the sinks there was no soap to wash your hands or no towels to dry with afterwards. One thing that erked me the most was the price for Camping was 30.00 a night. People should be payed to stay there. Golf Carts ran all day and all night. Dog's barked at night. The noise after quite hours was still loud. It just wasn't a very good experience for us. I would advise against anyone staying there. We camped at Riverside Campground in a Tent.

Don't waste your time here, find another campground. Bathrooms are bad, never cleaned. We were there for 4 days and they never touched them. ( use chains to hold toilet paper ), no towels to dry hands or soap to even wash your hands. Luke warm water only for showers. Grass in campground not mowed and getting very high. Camp sites have very little gravel in them so when it rains, it is mud. June 10th and they were just filling the pool. Golf carts run all the time.Campground need major overhaul, not worth the price. We camped at Riverside Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We set up camp on Saturday morning. Went to do some biking and had dinner. Arrived back at camp around 8:45. Went to our tent and could not access our site. No parking due to over crowding and to many tents on sights around us. The limit was supposed to be one car per site and 2 tents on site. We went to office and it was closed. After this we decided we also felt unsafe here with out a car nearby. Clientele around us was rather rough. We chose to leave. We pulled up stakes and went back to Asheville. I left a message on office machine. Then called back next morning. They refused to refund us our money. In general the campground was in pretty rough shape but clean. Sites were pretty rough around the river, with hardly enough room. They did not make campers follow policy. I also called AAA to let them know that they may need to check out what they are endorsing. Don't go...find somewhere else. We camped at Riverside Campground in a Tent.

Great campground. Very family friendly with lots for kids to do. Everyone was very friendly. I will definitely be going back. Had lots of fun. Had great gospel singing and free hotdogs. Bingo every Saturday night for cool little prizes. Made reservations for Labor day weekend and can't wait for all the fun and games. No doubt I will be there a few times before then as well.

Showers were terrible, dirty, and very outdated. Camping sites don't look like there has been any maintenance in a long time. Mostly occupied by permanent set ups. Looks like a lot of weekenders found this place cheaper to store their camper than storage. Entrance road very, very narrow and crooked and I was in a truck camper. Anything any bigger beware. We camped at Riverside Campground in a Truck Camper.

Pay Heed. This is not "Big Rig" friendly. My whole weekend was consumed by worries on how we were going to get out of there without going off of the payment. Advise motorhome campers to unhook their toad in town before going down the the 2+ mile road that leads to the campground. There are two soft 90 degree turns after you enter the campground. Tight. We camped at Riverside Campground in a Motorhome.

This used to be a nice little campground. Apparently has new ownership that takes little or no interest in the facility. Very poorly maintained, store didn't open on Friday morning until after 11am, grass hadn't been cut in some time, sink that was broken last summer is still broken. Very disappointed.

This park is an older campground located on a small river. The road in to the campground is North Fork River Road and it is extremely narrow in places. I did manage to pass a school bus on this road with out any real problem, but I was at a wider point in the road. I would recommend going no faster than 25 mph. The campground is mainly seasonal sites however the pull through site we stayed in was very nice. It required the use of some boards to make the camper level but thats why we carry them right? There are a good number of sites right up against the river, but they looked mainly for pop ups and tents. But i think it would be very relaxing listening to the water at night. The pool looked very nice however we did not use it, but there were a lot of people in it. The game room is old with some old video games and pool tables. There is also a basketball court and a volleyball court. If you don't have any equipment with you the campground has stuff for you to use. There was also a horse shoe pit. The bathrooms were fairly clean but old. The showers were old as well and kind of showed it. However there was not really any trash left all over the place. Now for the main office. This was very old and somewhat trashy. There isn't much to choose from in the store and everything seemed very cluttered. When the girl that checked us in went to use the credit card she had to disconnect the phone and run a cord to the credit card machine. There was also a big friendly dog that jumped up to the counter to welcome you to the campground which I thought was very cute. All in all the staff and other campers were friendly. The teenagers were very grown up and pleasant to be around. I would stay here again and for the price of $28 a night you cant beat it. We camped at Riverside Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
