The campground is small and limited, but the camp host, Russell, Is very friendly and full of info, and the CG is right in the middle of town (Location, location, location!). The VA Creeper recreational trail is at one end of the street (about 3 blocks) and the other end of the street is the AT which runs right thru the middle of town. several other trails very close by. Site was about 1" out of level and power was excellent @ 116 Vac. Not a whole lot of space between sites but we did put out the awning, and all 7 sites back up to the lovely babbling Laurel Creek. We will return here for more bike riding and maybe some kayaking. We camped at Creek Side RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Damascus Brewing Co, just west of town (closest brewery to the AT) has some great brews.

Nice little park right in town. Very good location for bicycling on the Virginia Creeper Trail. Small sights that back up to the creek with a picnic table. Level sites. Small town so not much road noise. Good friendly owner. Not much to do other than the bike path. We camped at Creek Side RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is right in town and convenient to everything. Bike shuttles all within walking distance and our favorite is right across the street. The campground owner treats you like family. We camped at Creek Side RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice little campground with a very nice owner. Wi-Fi was very limited with a weak signal in site 5. All sites back up to a stream and you get the sound of water flowing over the rocks. The park is almost downtown which makes walking to any of the stores downtown a snap. Damascus is geared for biking and hiking. Great place to stay and calling the owner to get directions to get into the park is a must. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Creek Side RV Park in a Motorhome.

The previous review was right-on. Nice place to stop and visit this quaint little town for a little R & R. The only drawback we had was there was no AT&T cell service. There was some kind of service since we did see people walking around using cell phones. Nice folks running this campground, and it was fun to sit by the creek and watch the fish and ducks. Couldn't get much more relaxing than this. No bathrooms or laundry facilities. Virginia Creeper trail is right there and bike rentals are plentiful if you so choose to ride the Trail. Sit back, relax, and enjoy. We camped at Creek Side RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Located at the intersection of US 58 and Railroad Avenue in downtown Damascus. The sites all back up to Laurel Creek with a good view. The sound of rapids is peaceful and relaxing. Sites are almost level, fine gravel. All hook-ups were good. Convenient in town to link up with numerous bicycle shops for transport to the Virginia Creeper Rail-Trail. The owner and wife were very friendly and welcoming, treated us like we were family. The Virginia Creeper Trail is only 3 blocks away. We would definitely camp here again when in the area.

A very small RV park located next to a stream in Damascus that is very basic, but clean and everything worked. The owners are very friendly and helpful if wanting to see the sights and spend some time in the area. This area of Virginia is among the most scenic and this park is the only one for 30 miles around. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Creek Side RV Park in a Motorhome.

RV park in center of town easily accessed from main Hwy, at bridge over creek. VA Creeper Trail close by. A few miles up the road to Abingdon and the Barter Theater. Great mountain roads nearby, including Rt. 91 from Mountain City, NC. Friendly, talkative manager who was accommodating. No showers or laundry. No play ground equipment but we saw plastic wading pool and slide that might do for small children. All utilities, including Wi-Fi, worked well for us. We camped at Creek Side RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Located at US 58 and Railroad Avenue in downtown Damascus. Pros: All hookups work great. Situated on Laurel Creek with good view (not accessible due to elevation of campground above creek and large boulders). Sound of rapids is peaceful and relaxing. Sites are almost level, fine gravel. Portable deck provided (keeps camper very clean). Electric very reliable. Hookups at right location. Convenient in town to link up with numerous bicycle shops for transport to the Virginia Creeper Rail-Trail. Owner and wife very friendly and welcoming, treated us like we were family. Cons: Directly next to US 58 (although the highway is really not that busy and noise was not really a concern during our visit). Back-in sites could be tricky for the unskilled. Sites perhaps a bit narrow, but pullouts seemed to have no conflicts. Reservations probably necessary due to the very small number of sites (only 6). No recreation at the campground itself (not the best campground if you have kids or teens), but with the Virginia Creeper Trail only 3 blocks away, there is plenty to do in the mountains if you bike or hike. We would definitely camp here again when in the area. We camped at Creek Side RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
