12 Parks near Copper Hill, Virginia
Oct 2015 - $30.00
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

The staff that we dealt with were extremely friendly and helpful. The sites were very very close together and the noise from the Interstate was constant because this right by an on/off ramp. The fire pit was minimal and there is nothing for the any kids like a playground or swing set even. The grass was cut and trimmed and the WiFi and hookups worked perfectly. We would stay here again if we were traveling through and needed a spot for a night but it's not really a place you would want to stay for an extended time frame. - AudiG

Starting with the good - The wifi works superbly, and the electric, water and sewer hook ups work well. Trash cans were always emptied. Bathroom was clean. The negatives. I've never been anywhere that the sites are this ridiculously close together. The trailers on the long term sites are mostly very run down, however the residents that I spoke with were pleasant. The traffic noise from I-81 is constant, as you would expect from a campground right next to a highway. It rained a lot while we were there and only a few sites have adequate gravel - there was a lot of mud. This isn't so much a campground as a parking stop with good hook ups and wifi. - pamvanw

Great for over night stay. Easy access from I-81. The site was pretty level and pull-through. We were happy about that, because who wants to mess around with parking a 36' trailer after 8 hours drive.
Would defiantly stop here again for a night's stay.
Yes, there was some highway noise, but it was OK. - Heidemarie

This is a very nice park. Lots of shade. Sites are very small. Some tent pads are only a few feet from the next. The sites without tent pads (Green card) are some of the smallest. Several sites are not suitable for motorhomes of any size. The water and electric service was good. Our Verizon service was adequate to stream some movies. The sites need some updates. In particular: broken pavement, stumps, roots.
The camp host was very helpful and attentive. Firewood was not available in the campground and must be brought from the park office. The bathhouse has been recently rebuilt and is nice and clean. It did run out of hot water sometimes.
Terrific beach on the lake and good fishing areas. Very pet friendly. Several nice hiking trails. I would go back if I could be sure to get a site suitable for motorhome. - HokieDon

We had water at the site which was fantastic, and the dump station was nearby which made gray water disposal very easy. This park was absolutely beautiful and we had a blast with the kids finding fairy stones (we found a ton). The sites themselves were spaced very well, offered privacy, were easy to pull into, and were clean and orderly when we arrived. The beach area was also fantastic and we enjoyed an entire afternoon splashing around. There are climbable water features, a water slide, diving board, etc. We loved our stay and had a great time during the 3 days we were there. - hojo70

Rangers at check-in were very friendly and helpful. Campground is at the top of a hill, so easy to ride bike to beach but very hard riding back. Can ride bike easily around campground. Going to the beach is far, thus a vehicle is needed. Beach is very nice and roomy. Campsites are level, shaded, and clean. Water pressure in showers was low but adequate. Can cut fallen wood near campsites. Good cellular reception and TV station selection. - Chave

Although well off the beaten path, and a little hard to find, we enjoyed staying here. The park is being renovated with wider spaces and sewer hookups. It was not crowded over Labor Day weekend and there were hayrides, etc... for the kids to enjoy. They have 3 lakes for fishing and a pool for the kids. The bathrooms had been repaired and were well stocked as well as very neat and clean. If you want to get away from it all, I recommend Deer Run. They also have permanents in a certain area in the rear, but they also seemed to be tidy and quiet hours were adhered to by all. We will stay again! - campfever

Located on a point on Philpott Lake this is a very nice campground. We were on site 30 loop C, a very nice site once you get your trailer situated. This site is a bear to get into as there is a steel gate and gate post right in the area you need to maneuver. Site 29 across the road is the same, hard to get into. I took a side marker light off my 31' trailer getting in, but other than that I had no issues with the roads. The campground seems to be inhabited by lots of locals, which I suppose if I lived nearby I'd do the same. I made my reservations in February to get a site during the week in May, you can't get in on weekends they are all booked. There is a nice beach and boat ramp with a fairly large parking lot. To those of you with small children, some of the sites in loop C are not kid friendly as they have 15 to 20 sheer drops to the lake and this lake is extremely deep, even close to shore.
The restrooms were exceptionally clean. There are only 2 showers in each restroom. The dumpster is 1/2 mile up the hill, as is the dump station. There is another restroom at that location with more showers. - scjenk

We had to reserve our sites 6 months in advance. We camp at this up to eight weekends each summer. Park ranger are friendly and the site are large in size. One of the best lakes in the area for boating. - ciderman

We stayed at Goose Point for 4 nights. The views on the waterfront sites in Loop C are wonderful. Most sites in Loop C are fairly level and a hard packed sandy gravel. The roads getting in are treacherous and the park itself has tight turns and narrow roads (with curbs). If this type of thing concerns you, or if you have a very large trailer or motorhome then you should consider this. It was doable, but nerve racking with our 31' travel trailer. If you do have a larger RV then I recommend site 18 as I think it is the longest site they have. There are no sewer connections and no way to turn around and head back towards the camp sites at the dump station, so plan accordingly. If you have anything larger than a pop up camper I would recommend Loop C only. Oh, there is also very little nearby in the way of food so you may want to bring plenty with you. Did I mention the views are awesome... We may go back some day, but the steep grades and narrow roads keeps this one off our frequent visit list. - Echelon73

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

With a 30' Travel trailer we had to search for a site big enough to take us and this park was almost empty. The pull through site was really a wide spot in the road and we were uncomfortably close to what little traffic there was. The site was level side to side but a little steep back to front. We were in site B103. Also the roads through the campground are very narrow. Not a place for big rigs. - shenandoahvalley2

Nice, quiet no hook-up campground at mile marker 120 on the Blue Ridge Parkway; just outside of Roanoke where all services are available. We only have a 30 ft class A and found that a number of the RV sites were not long enough for us, not sure if any would support big rigs. All sites are paved and level enough to work with. The pull arounds are not very wide and give you the feeling that your slides on the side nearest the road are a bit exposed. We liked site #91, it was level and big enough for the RV and had space for the toad next to it. It was one of the more open sites, most had more tree cover. The bathroom was very clean and basic, it is equiped with a lantern hanger for after hours visits since it has no lights of its own. This was a good campsite, pretty, quiet and well kept, dump station was easy in and out with potable water available at the far end of the dump area. Campground closes the end of Oct. We would stay there again. - mahaffee

This little COE park is wonderful! No TV reception, got good cell service for my phone and Hot Spot. Very convenient to Ferrum college, we used as a base while visiting our child. - 3dognights

Very busy when we arrived during weekday afternoon with no reservation. Long wait at gate for registration, many day use people trying to get into park. Was assigned a long narrow back-in site by road with no shade or privacy, very close to neighbors who supervised our setup procedure. Typical COE campsite with picnic table and fire ring on small crushed/compacted level stone surface. Limited antenna TV and AT&T cell phone service. It was hot and would return in cooler weather when not so busy. Campground is remote from nearby towns. - davidm99

We visited for the first time at the beginning of Oct., made reservations to return before we left. If you are used to privately owned campgrounds with all of the entertainment and amenities, you will not like this place. If you normally go to federal and state parks or boondock, you will love it! With my tow vehicle, I am 55 ft long, had no problem with the access roads or the dump station. My US cellular phone worked fine, though I could not get a signal on my air card. There is no TV, but I had a book. (even better) - 4 dog nights

Nice Army Corps campground on Phillpot Lake. Be aware that if you are in a motorhome or anything longer than 25ft do not travel to the lower sections of the campground. The roads are very tight and curvy. Lots of trees line the roads. We were in site 7, which is a pull through. Very tight for a 25ft trailer. Could not pull in, had to back in. Campground is very clean. The swimming beach is nice, but a good walk from the upper section. The lower section is mostly for tents and pop-ups with no water or electric. The upper bathhouse is the only one with showers, and there are only two. Make sure you bring what you need, because the campground has no store or supplies and the closest store is about 6 miles away. There is a boat ramp and two swimming beaches. We had a good time here and will return. - zeppy35

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
