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. - Texas E-S

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. - SerenityRVing

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. - Grayhound

This is a lovely, forested campground nestled in a huge community park, but not too far off of the highway. When you enter the park look for small, low, brown signs directing you to the campground. The campsites are almost level (this is a hilly area). All campsites have electricity, and most do not have water. So, plan to use the water you bring. There are a few water access points that nearby campsites use (via splitters) for water hookups. We arrived after it had been reopened after being evacuated for a hurricane and so shared it with only a handful of lucky campers. The older man at the gate was extremely helpful and suggested some sites that would be appropriate for our rig. We then went on to choose our site, he drove by later and marked down where we were camped. We stopped here to get off the road for the night and felt like we had hit a gem. We will definitely stay here again. - ShoreXplorers

We stay here every Sept. for the annual Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion. Sugar Hollow is also a great location for visiting the Barter Theater and the Virginia Creeper Trail. Signs directing you thru this large municipal park to the campground area are small and hard to read. Drive slow and read the signs carefully. Be sure to fill your fresh water tank upon entering the campground and before getting into your site. There is electric only- no water. There is a dump site. - mountainmaury

We really loved this park. We only stayed one night. I wish I could have stayed longer. Not all sites have water. There is not sewer, but they do have a dump. The camp sites are very woodsy. I felt like I was in an enchanted forest. The town is very clean. The campground is part of a larger park with lots of trails, ball fields and picnic grounds. - Mamapapa

Called today 5/28/13 and was informed that this campground is closed permanently and will not reopen. Site has been purchased by others and is being redeveloped for purposes other than a campground. - wintertexan

I will never stay at this campground again! We made two reservations for our trip - one in each direction to break our long drive. On the first leg of our trip, we were delayed in traffic for hours and didn't arrive until 5:30 am. Exhausted, we put our rent money in an envelope with a note explaining our late arrival and left it in our door for the manager. They woke us up at 9:30 am wanting to know when we were leaving! We had to pay $10 extra to stay until 1:00 pm, and check out wasn't until 12:00! On the second leg of our trip, after driving for eight hours, we arrived at the campground only to find there was not an empty site. We called the manager, and she said someone had decided to extend their stay so she didn't have a site for us. It didn't matter that I had called weeks ahead to make my reservation. We had to drive seventeen more miles to find a place to sleep. This is a great location for an overnight stay, but the management is so undependable and unprofessional, I will never stay at this campground again. - mpscott

This campground is okay for an overnight stop. It is very conveniently located and there are food stores and Wal-Mart nearby. It is a typical RV parking lot but with quite a few that looked like long term or permanent residents. The park manager is a little old lady who can't come to you so you have to call and then go to her trailer. The lack of security and the group that was outside drinking until late made us a bit uneasy but the night went without incident. We would most likely seek out another campground if we returned to the area. - bgbassman

This park is one of the most beautiful wooded parks I have ever been in, but getting here is pretty rough. The road is very curvy and mountainous with 3 hairpin turns. (We take a 35' TT up here). The upper campground has paved road with open sites (5 only) and a bath house with showers. The views here are amazing. The lower campground with 10 very spacious sites is completely wooded, therefore the views are not as good. Sites are not long, therefore there are only a few that large rigs can fit into. Electric only on the sites, but water is available for fill-up near the dump station in the lower campground. - MerryKalia

We stay here every summer, a couple weekends each month. We always love our stay here. There is plenty of activities close by. There is a playground for kids, clean showers, nice camp sites. The new owners of the marina have done great things. They have added a water park that most kids love. You can rent pontoons, kayaks at the marina also. Lake is kinda filled with drift wood, but most lakes are that didn't bother us. They could do a little better cleaning the boat loading ramp. Other then that, we will continue to stay at this campground for years to come. - Melissajase3714

This is a drive-in movie theatre that opens for camping during race weeks. We found ourselves here because the much more expensive camp we were in flooded. The theatre owners have terraced the hillside and installed 20 and 30 amp power taps down 2 separate rows of terrace just behind their snack bar / projection house. They have also installed men's and women's showers in separate buildings on the property. The rest rooms at the snack bar are left open for camper use too. Truthfully, this is one small step above boondocking. The power tap is the only utility available for hookup. There is water available on the property but it is near the men's shower house and requires at least 30 feet of hose to reach from the nearest road. The showers are nicer than I expected. Probably the highlight of our 2 night camp here was our interaction with the owners. You'll not meet nicer people. This isn't a campground where you'll want to plan as a destination for family vacations, but it is one you should consider if you want to attend a NASCAR race. We were able to stay 2 nights here for less than we were refunded for one night flooded out of another nearby campground. This one may not have all the amenities we all love, but nobody will be banging on your camper door telling you need to get out because the water is rising. - Joe_TUL

As mentioned in other posts, the water and electrical hookups were centrally located for 4 sites. We parked on gravel and the site was level, dusty, but level. Good antenna reception. There were not many campers so we were able to let our 2 dogs run along the creek for the length of the park, though we probably weren't suppose to. This is the closest full hook up campground to Bristol, VA & TN. Because of this, we will be staying there again. Park is clean. The road going in and out is steep, but we pulled our 38' fifth wheeling and out with no problem. - amxpress

The $56 is actually for 3 nights, but we only stayed 1. More on that later. This park has a very strange entrance and exit. From the road, you can't see the driveway and really have no idea what you're doing until you are 2/3 across the oncoming traffic. It (the driveway) is gravel and sloped down towards the office. Then it slopes further down and turns to get to the sites. In order to get out with your rig (towing), you will probably need 4-wheel drive because the incline from the sites to the office / road is steep and turns. The gravel was in good shape though.
The sites are every other one gravel, every other one grass. The water is located so that 4 sites use the connection. We had to run our water hose under our RV to the opposite back end. The electric is set up for 2 sites to use. Also, the sites are arranged so that you are literally back to back. The side yards are the tightest I've ever seen. In order for us to pull out from under our 5th wheel we had to pull all the up to the front (within inches) of a motor home that was across the street from us.
We were going to stay there 3 days, but we checked the weather our first morning and discovered that there was snow forecast for the morning we were suppose to leave. We are not fond of the idea of driving through the mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina with 16,000 pounds behind us while snow is falling. We opted to leave before the weather turned. Their policy is 72 hours for cancellation refunds. We did not get any of our money back. It is their policy and I don't hold it against them, but I don't have to like it either. - jomark

Rate of $18.00 includes tax and is with Passport America discount. We arrived after hours (in the dark) and helped ourselves to a site we liked. Entrance to the park is on a slight incline to the office/staging area and then a short steep gravel/dirt downhill drive to the campground. Roads are gavel and in fair shape. Site are designed as back-in but can be pull through if no one in site behind your site, pads alternate, every other one being gravel then grass. During non busy times RV's park on the gravel and have a large grass patio, extremely wide site although not very deep. During race weekend and very busy times grass becomes an RV pad and sites are very narrow, very close togther. Park was not busy during our stay, majority of park empty and clean. All hookups are at the rear of the site with some pedastalls being shared from RV's parked behind or to the side of your site. Depending on site selected, some hookups could be on the wrong side (far rear right) of the RV. Park is very close to Bristol Speedway and not far from retail outlets. Office staff very friendly. Sprint, verizon and T Mobile worked well. We did not locate or visit the shower or restrooms. There is a small store in the office with a few basic food items and a good varity of items/hardware for the RV. We would stay here again although not on a race weekend. - ECM1

This is primarily a seasonal-camper place, but to the park's credit they keep some nice waterfront sites open for short-term transients. They are a mix of back-in sites and pull-offs alongside the road. The electric hookups are 30-amp only and do not have circuit breakers, so you have to plug in "hot". The bathhouses are rather primitive, are unheated, and could use a good sprucing up. They do provide free hot showers. - WxToad
