We rented a "deluxe cabin" at this KOA campground. If you've ever passed by your local mobile home merchant and wondered what it would be like to live in the $24,599 special, come spend a night in this 1 1/2 bedroom 3/4 bath "deluxe (metal box on stilts) cabin." Upon entering this artificial accommodation, turn your eyes toward the ceiling to find the only air conditioner in this faux-wood experience. (You'll need to If you rent in the summer because it will feel like you've entered a metal sweat box reserved for torturing prisoners.) Feast your eyes on a flat panel TV mounted so you can only view it from an angle, and a sign on the refrigerator that reminds you to sweep and wash the dishes before you leave or pay a $25 fine. Enter the narrow hallway with a half step and look to your right to find a 1/2 bedroom with a built in bunk bed, laminated mattresses, windows facing your neighbor that can't be covered for privacy, and the oddest hanging lamps mounted where your head should lay as you try to sleep. It's a space so small and awkward you'll surely know what it was to sleep in a WWII submarine except you'll also have the privilege of being oogled by strangers. Down the hall, find the "3/4" bath featuring a shower with the water pressure of a giraffe with kidney stones peetering tepid water onto the savanna, and a toilet with a hole so small you have to choose which bodily function you'll perform first since both can't be accommodated at the same time. Ending the hall, you walk into the "master" bedroom, where the laminate wood flooring sticks to your feet instead of the ground, offering you the oddest sensation of "lumbering" to bed. Thrill to the joy of sleeping with your bedroom doors open as the tiny air conditioner works from afar to try to cool you. After your eventful night stay, don't even think of asking for a discount or your heart will break as a camp employee dutifully recites a list of how much worse it was for everyone else who stays there. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Cabin.

We booked this site online and put in a note that we needed a pull through level site, full hook up/ 50amp, long enough for a 40 ft motor coach and tow vehicle so we didn't have to detach tow vehicle. Public road into cg had low limbs that hit top of coach. This should have been a clue. When we checked in I asked to make sure that the pull through site was level and was assured that it was. We drove to the site, tight roads and turns. The site sloped forward so much that when we went to level up the front wheels were at least 8 inches off the ground. We put stacks of plastic pads under front levelers and front wheels and we still got excessive slope message. After trying for almost an hour to get level, we gave up, asked for a refund and pulled out. We would not have been so angry but we had asked several times before and during registration if the site was level and were told it was. If your coach is 40 ft or more with a tow vehicle and you are doing an overnighter, be warned. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Motorhome.
Beautifully maintained, woodsy and private sites. We had 1 of 3 back in sites with private, fenced, dog yard. Great assistance backing in as site was hard to back into. Great BBQ dinner onsite. Great for a restful stay next to Blue Ridge Parkway. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Lady at check in was very nice and helpful. Park roads are a little tight and steep in places. Utilities were in a good location and in good working condition. Disappointed in the fact that WIFI could not be used. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Motorhome.
We stayed here just overnight traveling from Pittsburgh to Myrtle Beach, and again on the return trip. This campground is beautiful, very wooded and rustic looking, and very peaceful. They have some kids' activities, like "gem mining" in a mock mine and catch/release fishing in a tiny pond. The campground is very hilly. They do have a note on their web site to call them if using a GPS to access the campground. We used the directions on their website and it did differ from the GPS route. Sites are roomy and level, each site is surrounded by trees. The second stay, we reserved one of the three sites that include a large fenced dog yard. That was a great bonus. The yard includes a small fire pit and separate areas of mulch and stone. There were a couple of piles left from previous visitors, but they were easy to miss as it kind of blended in with the color of the mulch. There is a step-open trash can in the yard to make cleanup easy. Yard area surrounded by pretty wooded areas just like campsites. Camp store is nice, KOA staff are super nice, as we have come to expect at KOAs. Didn't use restrooms or showers, but grounds were very well kept. There is a restaurant/diner just down the road called Lakeview Restaurant that had wonderful home cooked meals and desserts. Very nondescript in appearance but great homemade food. The campground is right off the Blue Ridge Parkway and there are some pretty views just a short drive down the road. This will be a regular stop for us on the way to points south! We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Travel Trailer.
The WiFi is really weak once you're away from the store, understandably being the CG is on a mountainside. Clean and supremely well kept as always. They could probably use one more bathhouse on the upper end as they were in use quite often and it's a long walk down to the office one. Everything was just as clean and nice as always. Super clean and nice little cabins. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Campground Cabin.
Outstanding campground. I would highly recommend if you will be in the area. We used it as a one night stay on our way to Myrtle Beach and it would have been nice to stay a couple more nights. They had a small pool but the staff was some of the most friendly I've encountered. Their restrooms were terrific. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Travel Trailer.
This park was a surprise. The office, showers, and restroom were all spotless. The laundry was very modern. Parking sites were fairly level for a campground in such a hilly area of Virginia. Every site was well shaded. Utilities were nicely located in one grouping which is not always the case. Access to the park is fairly easy, being just a couple miles off the interstate. I would have no problem camping here again. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

I must confess, I don't generally like KOA's because the sites tend to be so small. However, we just spent a week here and it was great. A little early in the season, so there were not many people there, but the sites are fairly large and have fire rings and picnic tables. Our unit is large, but still had no trouble getting in and out. Sites are covered with p-gravel and are pretty level; nothing the leveling on our RV couldn't handle. People were very friendly as we checked in. All in all, I couldn't have been more pleased. Close to a lot of the "Crooked Road" blue grass action.

Good wi-fi. Very clean bath house, but terrible "misting" showers, and bath mats that are so sharp they nearly cut your feet. Camp is near Mt. Airy (the town that the Andy Griffin show was based on). We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Motorhome.

First and foremost, it's camping. This is a great little park. Very pretty and nicely treed. We had the GPS on but followed the highway signs and got in just fine. It is convenient to I-77. It is a little tight and hilly but with care it is very doable. Our pull thru site fit our 40' RV and truck without having to unhitch. Most sites are on the small side but for those with smaller rigs they are very nice. They even have sites with pet yards behind them which would be very convenient but those sites are for very small units. We did not hook up to cable so I cannot attest to that. AT&T signal was not good but their WiFi worked very well. The store is on the small side but has all the basics for those just in case moment. This campground is in a great location to lots of local things to do. We would definitely consider stopping here overnight for our regular north to south and back journey.

The Internet access was excellent in the back of the park, but in our opinion the nicer sites are more in the middle, with more shade, grass and privacy. We were assured that those sites should have good Wi-Fi strength, also. Cable TV was a plus. The laundry room is very clean and reasonably priced. The dog park was a big hit with our cat! The owners are very amenable and friendly. The park backs up to the Blue Ridge Parkway with access to hiking trails, etc. We will be back!

Excellent camp. Clean washrooms including showers, accommodating staff. Pool was closed - as are most pools this time of year. Good Internet signal and speed. Only reasons not to give "10" are the sites are tight and the camp is a bit of an off road trip from the Interstate. We would stay here again.

Roads are steep and tight, but doable with care. They have a nice little fenced dog run that my little girlie really appreciated. Wifi is free and fast - NOT Tengo. Gorgeous, heavily treed sites on a hillside, so everyone is on a different level and no one is in anyone else's way. Staff is friendly and everything is clean and neat. Nice campground.
