We stayed at this campground to attend my niece's graduation from VaTech. While we only wanted two nights, the campground had a three night minimum for special events such as graduation. Pro's: It's a pretty campground on a lovely river. Makes for a nice photo back drop. I didn't specifically engage the employees, but my DH did and said they were kind and helpful. We had family visit us on the site for a cookout and there was plenty of space for their vehicles to park right across from our site. Con's: The train. I'd read reviews where some people said that got used to the train. I did not, despite sleeping with a white noise machine on the loudest setting. I had to take some heavy duty meds in order to get sleep. It's not the rumbling of the trains that is bothersome, it's the horns. There is a crossing X where the train crosses the road in front of the campground and therefore the horn is tooted loudly and at long intervals. I don't know exactly when the train stopped at night, but I believe it was around 3:00 am. I read a review somewhere that described the campground as a field with hookups and that is accurate. Our space was on grass and there was no concrete or gravel on the site (gravel to get to the site) and in fact, determining the separation of sites wasn't easy. All the hookups were in the back and we had to borrow an extension cable to get the electricity as our 25 footer was insufficient. The office had them available for us to rent. There was a picnic table on the spot and a fire pit, though oddly enough, they had placed the table overtop of the fire pit. We wouldn't have used it anyway in that we have our own. Though I believe they said the grass had been cut the day before, it was still too long. And the bugs...despite their claim in their FAQ that they don't have mosquitoes, they certainly have biting gnats/no see ums. I wouldn't stay there again due to the train and bugs. We camped at New River Junction in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

McCoy Road, which is the road you'd take from Blacksburg/Prices Fork to get there, is a 2-lane, twisty road with foliage growing right up to the road blocking visibility at certain points. Frustratingly enough, the speed limit is 45 (it should be 35) and many locals routinely exceed the speed limit. Do NOT drive on that road impaired. The Farmhouse in Christiansburg is worth the drive. Good food and a nice bar/patio area.

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. We camped at New River Junction in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at New River Junction in a Motorhome.

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!! We camped at New River Junction in a Motorhome.

We stayed here at the campground and it was the best if you love river activities. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone. We didn't however like the train noise but anyone can get over that. They can not help that at all. The staff was great and everything was really clean! Great Campground! We'll see you again! The river activities were awesome. Tubing, swimming, and lots more. Come here if you have kids! We camped at New River Junction in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great place to go if you like River activities. The campground is right on the New River. The sites are grassy, but not very wide. You are right on top of your neighbors. Also the sites are not real level from side to side. Water pressure is low. They have a small game room with four video games, ping pong table, and a place to shoot basketball. The bathrooms are small with one shower and a toilet. Most people are waiting on the bathrooms, because they are for one person at a time. There are two other showers at the rear of the office. The views are great from this location and the fishing is real good. The tubing operation was enjoyable. The owner kind of cold, and acts like he really does not care. The dump station, if you want to call it that is just a pipe coming out of the rear of the office. You have to back your camper up along side the office to get to the dump. The dump pipe is higher than your camper discharge. I felt like I was in the movie "RV". Real bad. The trains as in other posts are the worst thing about this location. Loud, Loud, Loud. This could be a great little campground if it had larger bathrooms, a real place to dump and more level sites. We camped at New River Junction in a Travel Trailer.

The park was nice- level grassy lots and the staff was very helpful. Will suggest you verify the water level before going tubing and take ear phones- there are train tracks right beside the campground with trains running through all night. We camped at New River Junction in a Tent.

I forgot to mention a couple of important things in my previous review: The campground is situated between two railroad tracks. Freight trains run 24/7 on both sides, about every two hours. They are noisy (loud squeaking when they make the mountain turn included in this noise) which means you can't hear the TV or a conversation, plus if you're sleeping they wake you up when they are passing. There are NO laundry facilities. We camped at New River Junction in a Motorhome.

Very low water pressure. Sometimes none at all and we had to use our onboard pump. No privacy. People using the river walk through your parking space regularly. Only 30 amp service. No sewer hook-ups. I only recommend this park if you want to use their services for tubing or fishing in the New River, not for a long-term RV stay. We camped at New River Junction in a Motorhome.
