9 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

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

Take Note! Campground has no facilities. Bath house was not cleaned. Three of 4 toilets in both restrooms not operable. Plywood covered the deteriorated floors. Okay for overnight, if only using on-board facilities. Expensive for what you get. Payment is cash or check only. Stayed here plenty of times when kids were students at VT. No upgrades done in the last seven years, at least. Bulldoze the bath house. - 12858

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

Hard to rate. Very old park. Excellent 50 amp, WiFi and cable TV. Picnic table and trash container on every lot. Emptied daily. Lots of permenant old RV's. Stay 7 days get one free. Easy access to hookups. But I have never been in a park with neighbors so close! With tax comes to over $38 a day. I would stay here again but it should be a $28 fee for what you get. - Ahrmless

Small park adjacent to Roanoke, the Blue Ridge Parkway, I-81 and their own Caverns. Restrooms looked old, I didn't use them. Full hook-ups available with fairly level pull through sites available for big rigs. They fill up so it might be good to call ahead.
Sites have grass between, picnic tables and fire rings. Tent sites around the perimeter. Lots of garbage cans around so not a problem to dump your own. Dog friendly. - Traveler Anne

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

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

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

Wow. Fabulous. Sites are huge, trees, wide, pea gravel with borders, Level. Lantern hangers, friendly people. The lake is long and interesting, beach for swimming, fishing, boat rentals. Rented a pontoon boat for the day, good price and excellent service. Highly recommend. Shower free, clean and hot water. Cabins available are resort like, would be a great place for a large family reunion. WiFi and cell spotty but come in enough to make communication very doable. Loved this place. - ppcoops

This is a very nice campground on a beautiful lake--and it's very convenient to the highway. We were in section D with water and electric--no sewer. We had a large, level, gravel, back-in site with plenty of shade. (Some of the trees needed trimming.) There is no wifi or cable TV. The restrooms are old, but clean. We definitely plan to return! - Lyn T

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

Great place. Stayed three nights. Escorted to our site (#14). The scenic view from our campsite was perfect. Lots of room for trailer and truck. Clean; level site; good water pressure; good WiFi; nice restrooms and showers. These folks take pride in this campground. Continues to add and improve amenities. Has many events during the year. About 5 miles outside the city of Floyd, VA. - billydw

My wife and I visited last weekend and had a great experience! I met the owner - nice guy who takes a lot of pride in his place. Everything was very clean and well organized. He escorted us to our lot and assisted in parking my trailer. Full hookups - be sure to bring the extra sewer hose, it's a long run. Water and electricity are very short runs. Wi-Fi was good - not the fastest but not bad. The owner is a retired electrical engineer so he knows how to make it work! There's no pool, dog park, playground or activities director - just a clean, picturesque park. The sites are VERY long and spacious. All have picnic tables and you can borrow a metal fire pit at the store. Firewood, ice and snacks are available too - just put your money in the box. The owner agrees campers are very trustworthy folks. The cool breezes were most appreciated during the hot late July weather! Nearby is the charming town of Floyd, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Mabry Mill, Meadows of Dan, Virginia Tech, and Roanoke is about 45 minutes away. Nice place - will visit again! - JonnieK

Spent two weeks here in a Class-A motorhome with a tow car. The sites are wide and long enough for both with room to spare. Sites are well maintained with grass between. The park is off the beaten path (I-81), but well worth the drive on VA SR8 and a county road (approx. 25 miles). Maybe a little far for an overnight. Only a few miles (4-5) to the Blue Ridge Parkway which is visible from the park. The park sometimes hosts car shows and other festivals in another part of the park consisting of nearly 200 acres, many are wooded. Most of the sites are pull-thru gravel with gravel approach roads and some back-ins. No problem with satellite reception, no cable, full hookup. Spoke with the owner several times who was actively involved. The staff was very friendly and the park was very quiet. We would go stay again. - RV_Jim

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
