Lovely little park with an assortment of accommodations. Owners were friendly and wake up to a million dollar view! A must visit! We camped at Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We are in a 36' class A DP and our opinion is that this park is not big rig friendly. The road from the office down to the campsites is steep and narrow with loose gravel and deep ruts in the road from rain runoff. We made it without issues but not without some concern and wishing we weren't here. Smaller campers, trucks and trailers will probably do fine. We paid $50 for 2 nights - one with PA discount and one with GS. Didn't use the restrooms. Plenty of grass for dog walking. Lots of OTA stations. Didn't try our satellite. Wifi didn't work at all for us-I used Verizon hotspot. We reserved and paid for premium site 13. The only thing premium about this site is that it has a small deck. 13 is very narrow and if we had squeezed our MH into it we wouldn't have been able to open the driver side bay doors due to a railroad tie retaining wall. We were able to take site 12 and it was wider and more level. If you do go here in a bigger rig site 12 is ok or sites 1-4 which are before you go down the steep hill (but you'll need to go down it to leave). I was expecting a Blue Ridge Parkway-kind-of-view but we didn't have that from our site. We wouldn't stay here again but that doesn't mean you shouldn't in something smaller. We camped at Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground in a Motorhome.

A gem located right on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Small and quiet and private. Great location for exploring both north and south along the Parkway. The friendly owner helps new arrivals park their rigs. We stayed for 9 nights and would stay here again. We camped at Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lots of good hiking trails along the Parkway. Don't miss the Blue Ridge Music Center. We enjoyed good barbecue in Galax, a cute little town. Many visitors enjoy Mabry Mill. Interesting history of the building of the Blue Ridge Parkway at Cumberland Knob.

Very nice park right on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Park is very clean with a nice little orchard. Bath house set up was the best I've ever seen in 30 years of camping. Six private bathrooms, each with their own commode, sink and shower. Very private and very clean. The rate was a little odd because they charged us the holiday rate for the day after the holiday and the holiday fell in the middle of the week. They also weren't sold out. Anyways, that was just to explain why the rate was higher than what I believe they normally charge. Interior roads were good but there was some inclines and declines. We only stopped over for a night but I definitely would come back and stay longer. We camped at Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground in a Motorhome.

We came upon this campground based on previous reviews. We drive a class B motorhome, and needed a night to relax. Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground is located on the Blue Ridge Parkway, approximately 3-4 miles off of Route 77. We arrived late afternoon, and actually stopped on the Blue Ridge Parkway to take a picture of the beautiful scenery and campground. Trimmed orchards, immaculate small cabins on the top of a beautiful hill with a dramatic 360 degree view. Totally quiet, we enjoyed our glass of wine relaxing outside taking it all in. Kudo's to the couple who own this hidden gem. OTA TV reception was great, and WIFI worked well. Cleanliness is paramount in their management style. The bathrooms (individual...not men's and ladies), were spotless with plenty of hot water. The showers were great with updated shower heads and pressure. We will certainly make this a pre-planned rest stop on our trips to PA from SC. We camped at Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This campground is atop of a ridge in on the Blue Ridge Parkway. You will have to drive back to you original exit on Interstate 77 when leaving. (You will depart the campground and turn right on to the Blue Ridge Parkway.) While we were camped, noticed 5th wheels, Class B's, trucks with tag alongs, and cars with tents.

A gem hidden away off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The hosts are outstanding providers of an excellent campground. It is quiet and clean, plenty of hiking and walking available. Store is well supplied and the best feature, single use bathroom/showers with plenty of hot water.......if you are going to do the BRP this is a gotta do when in Fancy Gap.

Sad as it is to say, this is not a campground for larger motor homes or 5th wheels. The hills within the campground are daunting. Moreover, the graveled roads are poorly laid out. For example, they are only as wide as a car even in the 90 degree turn spots. There is no widening in the turns as there should be. This means that the rear tires during a turn roll over the slippery grass and when trying to stop downhill or accelerating uphill you will slip or slide and run the risk of losing control. I experienced this when leaving. I have never spun the tires on a 40 foot motor home and hope to never do it again. We camped at Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate includes one night at PA rate. What a hidden gem. Sits right on Blue Ridge Parkway. When entering campground from the parkway use the gravel road to the left. The right paved road goes to the ranger station. We were in a 40' motorhome and the drive up the parkway from the south is easy. So is the route from the North. Cage is approximately 3 miles from Interstate 77. Owners live on site and are great. Fancy Gap, VA is approximately 3 miles. We camped at Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground in a Motorhome.

Super clean campground in a beautiful setting. Several hiking and biking trails in the area. Campground is set between the towns of Galax and Hillsville with organic farms and great restaurants. Be sure to visit the Alpaca farm across the street. We camped at Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park has a few pull thru sites at the highest point of the park which is near the entrance and office. We stayed in site 1. Beautiful views and excellent over the air TV reception (70 channels). Power was stable. The couple that owns the park is very nice and hospitable. My only problem was sometimes low water pressure. Used my RV water pump when this occurred to solve the problem. Some folks would downgrade the park for a lack of laundry facilities. For our needs, we found it wonderful. We camped at Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A great experience! Small, quaint, clean, friendly, quiet. Wonderful views. The grounds, sites, cabins and bathhouse are Immaculately kept. Hosts are friendly, helpful but never hovering. Nice golf course within walking distance. On the Parkway! Great areas to walk, minutes from town and Blue Ridge Music Ctr. Apple and peach orchards on property. Pond and trails. Stayed almost 3 weeks, could easily stay for months! Dog friendly. We travel in a 40 bus and toe. Will go back!

(no WiFi or cable- not a problem, its too beautiful!) We camped at Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is under new ownership. Very nice people! I believe they said they had just celebrated their first anniversary. It is just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Easy, easy access. It's in a very nice setting with a great view. Appears to have been an apple orchard at some point. Our site was smallish, but it seems like most people just use this as home base while they explore the Parkway. Some of the other sites looked larger. They have several what appear to be one room cabins that are cute as a button. They cater to motorcyclist. There was some walking trails but we didn't have time to check them out. The best thing is the bathhouse. It was a building with 5 (pretty sure that was the count) separate large bathrooms with toilet, sink, shower and bench. I love this concept! They were incredibly clean! The shower could be a little bigger, but that is a minor factor. There was even a deck all around with a couple chairs in case you had someone waiting for you. We camped at Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground in a Truck Camper.

Beautifully located on the Blue Ridge Parkway, this is a hidden gem. Arrived late at night and the hosts were waiting for us and helped us setup in our site. Very modern shower and washroom facilities which were very well maintained. Nice views and hiking trails in the area....and, of course, the Blue Ridge Parkway!!
