9 RV Parks near Blacksburg, Virginia
Jul 2015 - $42.00
Mostly for tubers and fishers, but suited us just fine because we typically don't use the facilities - just the hookups and later, the Dumping station. It was difficult to move a big RV around after using the dump station - just not enough turn radius. I wouldn't say the restrooms and shower were dirty...just looked like they were 100 years old - stained and rusted (looked pretty bad). But truly, not dirty. Nice staff and a beautiful location for a peaceful stop.
You are pretty far from the nearest grocery store or anywhere to eat. - C and K on the Road

Loved this park! It is small and really a destination park, not a place to overnight, though we did overnight there to visit friends in Blacksburg. Our site backed up to the New River. It was peaceful and lovely. Good electric and water. Dump station but no sewer hookups. The campground is also a tubing company and most people seem to come there for river activities. There are a lot of tent campers, so be advised that the air will be smoky. The Wi-Fi signal was strong, but I was unable to connect, leaving me to believe their server was down. I did get a marginal 3G signal on Verizon and a usable 1X signal for tethering my netbook so I didn't miss the Wi-Fi. The young woman in the office is delightfully friendly. The campground is quite a bit off the beaten path. - Road Princess

We paid Passport America rate. Campground is right on the New River, great for fishing and tubing. Sites are very narrow the 6 RV sites with gravel are level. Campground is very clean and well maintained. Water pressure was great, over the air TV reception is spotty due to mountains. Owner was very helpful and accommodating. Train noise was not a problem, we hardly even heard it after the first night. Would stay here again!! - 20andOut

Basically just a parking lot with hook-ups. It backs up to a very run down trailer park. There is a house...looks like it may have once been a bathhouse with office but it is boarded up now. Operators were friendly, but the cost is crazy! Full hook up water, electric, and sewer with broken picnic tables in some sites. The site dividers are falling down. JWe went to hook up our tanks to the dump, but the hook-up hadn't been used in so long, it was over grown back grass. After cleaning off the grass and taking the cover off, we determined it is missing the hook-up colar...This it can't be used. Its just a place to park basically....Shouldn't be more than $25 a night. The RV Park Reviews says $30 a night but it's wrong! It's $45. - M31

Had electric and water hook-ups, but otherwise just a gravel parking lot. Campground is close to the highway, but the highway noise was not objectionable. Showers were closed for the season. This park is good as a reasonable cost overnight stay when you must stay in the Christiansburg/Radford area. If space is available; the nearby Claytor Lake SP is similar cost and much nicer. - rjohnso3a

Close to I-81. Hookups OK. But that's about it. Basically a gravel parking lot. No space between campers. The "bathhouse" was an absolute mess. Saw no signs of cleaning and it looks like it hasn't seen maintenance in years. We'd only stay here again in a pinch. - tomnorman457

I'm not sure what the reason is that campgrounds have to be so darn close to the Interstate highways and their exit ramps, but this one topped them all. Yes, it's nice to exit from the highway and immediately pull into a campground entrance, but it's also nice to get a good nights rest free from excessive highway noise. And there was quite a bit of noise, so if you are a light sleeper, don't expect much. Yes, I knew it was close to the highway, but it was at the halfway point home, and I didn't see many other options to choose from and I was tired from driving, so we stopped. Where is Wal-Mart when you need them? When we pulled in the main campground driveway, the entire place looked dreary and in need of some spring cleaning, maintenance, and sprucing up. At first I thought the rest room building had a band of yellow caution tape around it, but it was just the paint peeling off of the doors and the overall dirty, dingy look of the building. We didn't venture inside the building. The sites were OK, but not very level, and the utilities were fine. There were a number of seasonal campers around the grounds, some of which needed a good cleaning and tidying up. I must say that the staff member that checked us in was informative and welcoming. I think that was the only positive aspect of the entire stay. I doubt if we would ever stay there again. - Love To Travel 2

This park is a great location. Not a bad place to stay for convenience. It is open year round and is directly off of I-81. The lot we had was a long pull through, so it made it easy for our long rig. It has quite a few "residents" and they had cluttered sites. However, everyone we met was very nice. I would stay here again if I was passing through, but would not be likely to vacation here. - Joe Krukosky

Our site was in the center. While it was a pull-through, it was extremely narrow. Our outdoor mat was touching the sewer hookup pipe belonging to the adjacent site! We could not have extended our awning if we had had next-door neighbors. It appears that many sites are occupied by permanent residents. You need a 6-character code to enter the restrooms and showers, which have seen much better days. A police car patrolled several times during the evening, making us wonder why... There's no dedicated dog-walking area, although pets are welcome. We had no shade but it didn't matter, as we pulled in at dinner time and left early in the morning. Wifi was OK, but we were close to the office. There's a lot of road noise from the interstate. Our picnic table was rotting badly. We were not there while the cavern was open. We would not return to this campground. - Pandora518

We used to stay here when it belonged to Passport America so never paid more than $15. Now it's $28 for the cheapest sites. The faucet was faulty, grass overgrown, ant hills everywhere, electric supply very poor and we had to use gas for our fridge and hot water. The location is nice even though under the interstate bridge but convenient and the town was pleasant and close for meals. Fuel price was ok. This place has really gone downhill though and is poor value for money in our opinion. - Lyndajw

The biggest problem with this place is that they are not truthful about the place when I phoned in advance and the people on site know nothing about RV camping. The website posts a log cabin that doesn't exist. Most of the river sites were taken by long termers and none could accommodate a Class A. It really is a gas station with sloppy sites almost directly underneath Route 81 overpass. It is noisy, dirty and hard to access. - CaptainRV
Sep 2011 - $18.00
This is not a destination park, but is very convenient for a stopover along I-81...it's literally under an I-81 overpass. It's right on the river and the store is well stocked and includes a sit down deli with homemade BBQ pork which smelled wonderful. It's a Passport America park. I only gave it a 5 because it's a little noisy from the proximity to the interstate and because there are no amenities. I'd stay here again, though, on my way through Virginia! - RVerMJ

Stayed overnight on the way to and from Nashville. Park appeared to be very well maintained and clean. After 6 hours of driving, the park provided a welcome rest. We didn't take advantage of the trails or beach. - Doneitall

Great campground with easy interstate access for our road trip. It was nice to see an actual person in the guard shack at night, rather than messing with registration envelopes. We stayed on the B loop without hookups. You don't get to choose your specific site until you get to the park, but apparently that is changing in March 2018. Very quiet at night and no flooding problems despite persistent rain. Bathrooms were a little dated but kept clean. Nice to have a dish sink and grey water dump at the bathhouse. Individual shower rooms had a few bugs but the water was nice and hot. - RVNed

Really nice State Park in Southwestern Virginia. Even with a reservation you choose your own site and all of them - on the Water/Elec "D" loop anyway - are very spacious, level, well kept and private. There are a number of nice back in sites and plenty of huge pull-throughs.
We were not here 5 mins before the camphost came over and welcomed us.
Lots of trees, but our rooftop SAT still worked and there is both Verizon and ATT cell/broadband service. No wifi anywhere, however.
The bathrooms are old, but pleasant places that are spotless and kind of "summer campy" in look.
We stayed only for the night so we don't know what the lake or the rest of the park looks like. But this park just a couple of miles off of I-81 is a gem. - Creativepart

Price reflects free night for every 7 days. 30 amps/full hookups for this Airstream-only park. Sites are close together but most offer fantastic views of mountains to the west. The park sits atop of ridge around 3,000 feet in elevation. The temps were about 10 degrees cooler than surrounding lower elevations. The park is owned and managed by “Shareholders”. Shareholders take turns as the campground host. The park is very friendly and social. Visitors are treated just like Shareholders and are included in all of the many planned activities that take place each week. We stayed 9 nights but would liked to have stayed longer. Sites come with a concrete pad and all are very level. Laundry facilities are available at a very reasonable rate. The park is 75 acres and includes a number of hiking trails. Nearest large grocery store is in Floyd, about 17 miles away. - Barefootdog

This is a small, beautiful RV park just for Airstreams. The mountain view from the campground is breathtaking with the most beautiful sunsets. The park is run by volunteer stockholders who take turns being hosts and everyone is super friendly. Guests can join in during park social events like happy hour under the trees or other activities they schedule. It's great balance of mountain tranquility and hospitality. There are no bathroom/shower facilities so plan to use your RV for that. There is a nice laundry in the clubhouse guests can use. The nearby town of Floyd is great (13 miles) and Roanaoke and Christiansburg are close by as well. Not to be missed. - red2dogs

Only Airstream brand travel trailers and motorhomes may camp at this privately owned park. The campground is located on a 75 acre property in the Virginia mountains, convenient to I-81 and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Campsites are on a ridge line affording beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. The property is meticulously maintained. Wi-Fi service was strong. There is a very nice clubhouse with library, kitchen, and laundry facilities. Park host duties are rotated among the stockholders in the property. Hosts and stockholders camping at the park were extremely friendly and helpful. Children are allowed but there are no activities specifically for them. The park is extremely quiet and peaceful. Most visitors seem to enjoy multiple day stays for quiet relaxation or exploring the local area. There is strictly enforce limit of two non aggressive pets. Sites have full hookups but there are no shower facilities. There are many recreation, cultural, entertainment, dining and shopping opportunities in nearby Roanoke, Floyd, Christiansburg, and Blacksburg. Propane can be purchased on site for a reasonable price. - Florida 55

The park is a mobile home park and long term RV spots in the back which by the way is a flood plane and in the past six months we were evacuated by the city once. Other than that, the facility is fine but no restrooms or showers. There is a laundry room. The lots are clean and some are shaded, most aren't. I was there six months and all was well until.... I made one simple complaint and I was respectful and simply asked for a correction. The owner freaked and ordered me to leave within 24 hours. I had to pack up in 8 inches of snow. - East TN Camper

Great park close to VA Medical Center. Our GPS could not get us there. Roanoke is Boulevard on the street signs. Use VA as end destination as its on all the maps and the parks is between the VA and the school. Great staff friendly and helpful. - littlegeneral

Clean, quiet, affordable and well located for visiting Roanoke and Salem Va. This facility is not a 'destination park'. There are no playgrounds or bathhouses. What you get s a clean, quiet pad sight, (most are level). The park is well maintained, and consists primarily of mobile homes and long term RV residents. RV parking is primarily to the back of the park, along a creek. Note that the creek does occasionally overflow its banks, and if staying in the park in times of extended heavy rain, you will want to keep an eye out for flood warnings and be ready to move you unit to higher ground if warranted.
A few of the RV sites can be a bit tricky to get into, especially for a towable, due to carports and mail boxes placed very near the curb.
Good over the air television and Verizon cell signal. Minimal onsite management presence during our stay. Site had 2 18-24 inch wide concrete strips to park on which were long enough for us to park our 40 ft. - Fan Of The Blue Ridge

Spacious clean sites strategically located on 100 acres for spectacular views. Hookups at the rear so bring extra hose. WIfi was excellent. Bathrooms clean. Pets are welcome with fenced in dog park or large fields for exercise. - Russ60

Very peaceful and beautiful setting nestled near the Blue Ridge Mountains. There are some long term renters, and it would be nice if they were more spruced up. There are full hookups and WII FI. The WII FI was up and down which is disappointing as the last time we were here it was screaming fast. There is no privacy and little space between sites. The park is very near the Blue Ridge Parkway. They have many events here and one year we'd love to be here for the Bluegrass event. - Free

A good, quiet campground just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway. I arrived after hours but they had information for me at the camp office. The campground is spread out into different sections and a mixture of open sites and treed depending on the section. I did not meet any staff, but the camp host came by as I was setting up and welcomed me. Site was graveled and level, all hookups worked well. I found a strong WiFi signal but was unable to connect to it at all. The bath house was a nice facility, clean and well kept. Firewood was available at the camp office on an honor system. - Cyclonic

I was actually staying at Gentry's Landing for a short visit with my family who are long time campers. I was very impressed with the care given to the property. The grounds were kept neat and clean and it was a very peaceful visit. This is why I have the picture from the campsite overlooking New River as my computer wallpaper. I hope to return there someday to be a longtime "camper" myself. The caretakers do not allow rowdiness and seem to really "take care" of the property.
The only complaint is the fact that the highway is very close and the trains coming through the area on the other side of the river. Of course, these are things that the campground have no control over (short of constructing a sound wall). Everyone assures me that once you are there for any length of time, the positive qualities of the campground make up for the noise. - Margaret E

Gentry’s Landing, Narrows, Virginia- This is a very small overnight type campground owned by the Lions Club of Narrows, VA. It is situated on the New River and is extremely picturesque. The New River is a premier fishing and rafting river that flows from South Carolina up into West Virginia. Almost all sights are seasonal sites. There are 5 sites available for nightly rental with full hook-ups (30 amps) and cable TV. We stayed here 6 nights at a nightly cost of $19. The campground is located about 17 miles east of Princeton, WV off (on) US 460. Since it is immediately off of US 460, you’ll hear highway noise. The bathrooms are VERY clean. No Wi-Fi is available. I went into Narrows next to the MacArthur Hotel to make a connection. If you’re looking for camping in Bluefield or Princeton, WV, there isn’t any. This and Pipestem State Park are as close as you’ll be able to get. This is a very good lay over type campground at a reasonable cost. We'd stay here again. - DelArmy
