Nice park, we had issues finding it but we were also very tired. Once in the staff were nice and helpful. Store wasn't much so make sure you have what you need. There was a dear that was roaming around and it seems it has become somewhat of a pet to the park. was a young one as well. site were easy in and out. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Motorhome.

This is really a unique park. The road leading in (Frog Spur) is supposedly two-lane but I would really hate to have to pass anyone on it; it's hilly and curvy and very narrow. But, there's hardly any traffic so it wasn't a problem for us. The park itself seems to be carved out of a mountain; sites are terraced but relatively level. Roads and sites are gravel with lots of tight turns climbing up or down the mountain. We arrived after closing so had no escort to our site or interaction with staff. All that said, we were able to get our 40' rig in and out without trouble. It was convenient to the interstate and we would probably stay here again. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We arrived off the interstate and found it very difficult to find the road to the campground. The road in was very tight. The roads throughout the campground are very tight. The trip out and back to the interstate wasn't any easier. The campground is old and all the sights are in need of repair and landscaping. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Motorhome.

Terrific park right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Variety of sites able to handle the largest coach to tent campers. Several sites offer their own dog walks. Bathhouse is immaculate. Each year the owners have added improvements, our favorite in the Blueridge. During summer months owners offer a variety of activities, family oriented. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Right off Blue Ridge Parkway. Up the mountain from Mt. Airy, prototype of the town the Andy Griffith was sheriff in. Outstanding antiques nearby.

This is a very nice RV park, some of the best and cleanest restrooms we have encountered at an RV park. The park is less than a 1/4 of a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway, if you are in the area, I highly recommend you stay here. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This park has tight turns, several levels, trees, tree roots, rocks, and ditches along drives. This makes it difficult to find and level your spot. My wife tripped over a root and broke her wrist while guiding me in. The campground staff does not provide any help to find your site and offered us no assistance with my wife's injury.

I saw another motorhome hung up and severally damaged because he drove into a hidden ditch while trying to find his site with no guidance. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Motorhome.

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.
