Really good WiFi. Staff where efficient and we were taken to our site and helped to back in. Site was not so level as it needed 4 to level on the passenger side to make good. Really very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Motorhome.

Absolutely first class. Have no hesitation in recommending them. Very quiet. Right on Parkway. Full hook up available. Fantastic. If I didn't live in New Zealand, I would definitely return. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Truck Camper.

This is probably one of my favorite campgrounds ever! It is small, but cute and quaint with good sized sites. There are some pull-throughs. We had a back in site with a fenced in area for our dogs, it was terrific and unique, have never seen this before! The park is wooded and hilly, but extremely well maintained. There are some sites with patios. There are also cottages for rent and tent sites. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table and a spaced nicely apart. Although we didn't use the bath house, it was immaculate and also quaint. There is a dump station, but there are full hookups available to include cable. The wifi isn't bad, nor is the cable considering how rural it is, right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is a pool, but not open yet, still pretty cold in these parts! We arrived late, after the office had closed, and we had a reservation. We switched sites and cleared it up in the a.m. The own was quite cordial about the switch. We only stayed one night but will definitely return! We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We came in from 77, which is an easier way than ascending from Mt. Airy, NC just over the border. You have to go up a really steep curvy mountain from that direction. We did go home that way but it was all downhill.

Stayed in site 53 up on the hill. Site was level and wifi connection was stable. Cable stations were limited. Site was shaded as is much of the park. Camp store was stocked and owners were nice. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Park is on the side of a mountain and you have to be a goat to get to your site. Park was filled with mostly trailers and they turned both kids and dogs loose and both were loud from 07:00 until after dark. Nearby sites constantly burned garbage in their fire pits which smelled bad and this happened every day but office personnel did nothing to stop the noise or the trash burning. Sites are super tight and you have to be a really good driver to maneuver through the tight and tiny roads while climbing a mountain. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PARK! Not up to KOA Standards. NO TV Service even though you pay for it! We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Motorhome.

I cannot recommend this KOA because it is not a quality KOA Park in my opinion, you have to be a mountain goat to get around because there dug out sits on the side of a mountain and winding roads that are very difficult to maneuver through. Sites are very tight and close to each other and you better have good jacks to level your unit, our front tires were 2 feet off the ground trying to level our coach, sites are not that good! You have to deal with people burning trash in their fires and it stinks, office personnel drove by and never said a word to people doing this and many of them do it. Lots of trailers at this campground and forget about getting peaceful rest because there are kids screaming all day and up to the night, it never ends! And the kids are running through every site, they run through our site most of the time we were there. But the area is fun to visit, where Mayberry NC supposed to be, its where they shot the early episodes of Andy Griffith. See the old jail they used in the show, its a fun day to spend but don't plan over a day or two at the most. And check out other campgrounds, I don't recommend this KOA for coaches and I don't recommend it for anyone who wants to get some quiet peaceful rest..... We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Motorhome.

We spent two nights in this lovely well shaded park. It's a hilly piece of property and has campers, tents and RVs on different levels. We were in a 36' motorhome with 3 slides. The WiFi and cable was very good at our site. They have a pool but we did not use it. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. We had a 50 amp full hookup site that was a pull-through. The sites are gravel. Our site was plenty long, as we also were towing a car. However, it wasn't as level as it could of been and they are a little close. In spite of that, we would return again and just ask for a more level site. We were there during the week (Tuesday and Wednesday nights) and it was very quiet. They said they are always full on weekends. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Motorhome.

We used this as an over night stay while traveling. Pull through site was barely long enough for my 36' MH and toad. I had to unhook since we couldnt get level without backing up further into the site. We didn't use any of the amenities. The on site pizza was tasty but small. We would stay here again while passing through. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Motorhome.

I booked a pull through site, gave them the length of my motorhome and told them I was pulling a car. They gave me a pull through site that was long enough for the motorhome and the tow, but the utilities were at the rear of the site so I had to disconnect the car. The 50 amp plug was loose in the box and difficult to connect. They advertise wifi and I was able yo connect, but unable to get on the internet. The price was way too high given all of these problems. I won't stay again. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice KOA that backs up to the Blue Ridge Parkway in Fancy Gap, VA. They have a wide variety of sites available, including 3 sites that have their own fenced in back yards for people with dogs. You can just let your dog out into the yard which is pretty dog gone cool! They have some pull throughs, they have back ins, they have tent sites, one of the tent sites comes with a decent size pavilion. In short, they have just about every imaginable type of site, and some you may not have imagined. Most of the park is forested. There is a back row of back in sites that is mostly open overhead allowing roof top satellites to function. The owners are really nice and they do a barbecue for 10 bucks a person on Friday night. There is a pool, horseshoe pit and dog park. They sell propane, ice and also have a gift shop. It is a nice place and is not set up like a parking lot, but more like a state park with winding curvy roads and lots of vegetation. They also have cabins available. Best place to stopover in the area. Prices are on the high side. Cell service is good. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

I've been to this campground 4 times, and in the past year it has had improvements. The playground has new equipment and the wi-fi is GREATLY improved.

We arrived at Fancy Gap KOA at 1:00 pm and the employee was nice and my husband thought she told him site 77. They did not take us to our site. The road into the park was narrow and had tight turns. At 8:00 pm a rude employee came and told us we were in the wrong spot and that we had to move to site 79 because another trailer had arrived and they had reserved this site. We packed up and moved in the dark as it was our mistake. The sites were unlevel with drop offs covered in thick leaves. We did not see any security for 3 days. We camped at Fancy Gap / Blue Ridge Parkway KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Just stopped for an overnight, so experience was limited. Very nice property, sites are cut into the hill so the interior roads are hilly. Very cool atmosphere with lots of trees and the terrain.

Some other reviewers had trouble with roads leading to campground ie; frog spur road. We did not use that road instead we used the approach of State Road 52 and the junction of Blue Ridge parkway.
