I was given very good directions in and met by the owner who personally directed us to our site. Quiet comfortable night's stay. Used showers and bathrooms the next morning and they were very clean. As we were packing up the owner checked with us to make sure everything was enjoyable and that we had a nice stay. I would recommend it highly. - travelling phrogg

Spent a wonderful 5 days here with my family. Small park with only 15-16 sites that are all level, large, and fairly private. We stayed at site 15. Very private, complete with deck overlooking a small creek that meanders from the back of the park to the front. Each site has full hookups and 30/50 amp power. All sites and roads are covered with gravel which keeps the park very clean, even in bad weather. During our stay we had several strong rain events and our site (and overall park) drained very well. The park is located in the town of Fries which is 15-20 minutes from Galax, Va. it is where the 50+ mile long New River Trail begins. Trail is relatively flat and runs alongside the beautiful New River. The park owner is extremely nice and helpful. He developed the park and obviously takes great pride in his work. - Denver James

This is a small park owned and managed by one of the friendliest and helpful hosts I've run across. The park is very quiet. The spaces are all large and easily accessible even with larger rigs. The sites are gravel as are the roads. The wifi was excellent but Verizon cell coverage here is pretty poor. Access to the New River Trail State Park is nearby and you can jump on the trail in a number locations very convenient to the park.
This owner obviously prides himself in the park looking nice, neat and clean. The restroom/shower was spotless. Would definitely stay again. - TLL

We arrived after dark. Office was closed and we left check payment in box by the office. We parked in the front section and there was only one other MH there. We had that section all to ourselves. It looked new to us. The back part had more sites occupied and had small modular type homes for sale. The CG is a very open grassy area, very spacious and clean, level sites. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

Our group stays here each year and we have a great time. The owner takes very good care of all his guest. There are many things to see and do in this area. It is right off the Blue Ridge park Way too. The name says it all. Odds are good you won't need your A C even in summer much.
The settings around this campground are wonderful. The back lots have a wonderful view. They take care of this campground and it really shows. His wifi is the best one can find anywhere now days. Super fast and easy to get a signal from. I do not hesitate to say he has the fastest and best internet of any campground you will ever stay at. We stream live broadcast out to the world from this campground all the time with no issues. Hard to find another place you can do that from. Still kind of iffy on that cell phone service. You are back in the woods a bit so what would one expect right ?
All in all, it really is one of the best kept campgrounds you will find and the owner takes care of his guest. After that the rest just falls in place for you. Going on 5 years we have visited. We love it and you will too. - jturner9

We stopped there as a last resort. We could not find anything else in the area. The site was fine. The hookups worked. There were a lot of full-timers so it looked a little sketchy. The garbage was overflowing and smelly. Shade was available. The night was quiet and peaceful. Overall this was acceptable but don't expect luxury. If we were in the area, we would stop again but only for one night. Not nice enough for any longer. - Rambotbm

This is such a rundown Park that the Trailer Life reviewers should be embarrased with the ratings that are in the book. The Saturday evening that we were there, some of the permnant residents were having a celebration with loud music. The streets are dusty and dirty. No maintance has been done to the trees or sites in forever. It was once a nice park I'm sure as the layout is excellent. One has to laugh at the "rules" when you see the permnant residents areas and un-leashed animals - Arizona Traveler

I don't know what the other camper who reviewed this campground was smokin. Ocean view? We're 3 hours inland.This campground is right on the highway with a lot of noise. Summers it gets in the 100 degree range. Would not recommend this park. - bgsell

A luxury class A resort. Beautifully landscaped concrete pad 45' wide x 120' long. With beautiful casita with full bath, plus 15 x 20 outdoor kitchen and granite bars. On lovely golf course with pristine garden. Patio with gas fire pit. And, more things to do than days in the summer - golfing, lake and river fishing, trout fishing streams, Blue Ridge Parkway five minutes away, nearby blue grass and country music jams and festivals every day, fifteen or twenty wineries all within less than an hour, most scenic backroads in the country, the best motorcycling roads in North America, art and craft studios galore, numerous fruit orchards, literally hundreds of hiking and bicycling trails within five to ninety minutes away including two of the best ranked trails in the US - Creeper Trail and New River Trail, antique car shows, many race tracks near by including Bristol and Virginia International Raceways, small town festivals almost every weekend, photographers dream with many old time quaint country villages and numerous parks, forests, and water falls, and the friendliest folks that I have ever met. It spoiled us so much that we don't want to go anywhere else. - Bob Wiseman

We stayed 5 nights in our 30' TT. We arrived as Hurricane Mathew was hitting NC. Campground is right beside New River T NC/VA boarder. Drive is a steep but short single car entrance. Office on right, you need to pull past it and turn right to park to check in. We were meet as we got out of care by owner or manager. Checking was quick, we had our choice of re sites because only few camper. It was rainy an owner advised backing in due to wet ground. Larger sites are in front of bathhouse, 30 yard from river. Sites have gravel pad but larger campers may have problems with tow vehicles having space. We used empty space beside us to park. Site do slope towards river and my require extra blocks in front.
Water and power only. Dump site near permit sites, may require some wait during busy times. Power was 30 amps and was stable. Water pressure fine. Tables and fire pits- no grills. Bath house is rustic but has instant hot water so does not run out. Lots are 50/50 shaded.
No wifi but Version was 2 bars LTE or 3G. Did not really check out store. They do have 4 primitive cabins to rent
After 1st night there were only 1-2 campers in campgrounds. It is a good base camp for day trips to Boone, West Jefferson, Galax...
I could see this place rocking hard in summer with younger folks rafting. I would not cal this a "Glamping" place but will come back again. - mj1angier

Beautiful river and mountain views. Showers were clean, and so was the porta potti. However it states "No Alcohol" and in fact it was allowed, numerous campers partying, drinking and being very loud in to the early morning hours. If its a good night sleeps you need, then look elsewhere. It also states "no pets under 15 lbs" when in fact there were dogs there over that limit. While the tent sites were nice and large, We found the campground not very family friendly, and poorly managed. We drove from Florida, over 500 miles, and will not stay there again. - crazyjag

What a joke, they have a dog policy. No dogs over 15lbs allowed. We found that out when we got there, and soon after left. Noisy whining kids and obnoxious partying and these people are worried about dogs? The staff was friendly enough but behind it was the veil of gestapo with rules for this and that. Also the staff rides around a lot on golf carts making the place noisy. It's hard to list all the things we didn't like about this park. It ranks amongst our worst. This is more of a local hangout than a serious campground. - viper-2

Loved this park. The location is great, tucked away in a quiet area surrounded by trees. Our site was great, easy in and out, very spacious with great power supply.
The staff was friendly. The park immaculate even in December and the cell reception and wifi worked fine. - Two Dogs and an RV

All gravel roads with some ruts and pot holes. The small sites had concrete pads, but the pad where we were was on the pinacle of a small hill, so the pad was flat but you had to climb up to it and climb down when leaving it, making it impossible to unhook or hook up a tow vehicle when parked. Utility hookups were good (although spaced fairly far apart), there was a picnic table, but if there had been motor homes in the adjacent sites, it would have seemed "crowded". Internet was spotty and not much use. - Don Gagnon

This is a very laid back, relaxing place to stay. The owner/operator is friendly and didn't bother you. Rules were reasonable. We were there late in the season, so the park wasn't very busy. The pool was closed. Laundry facility was excellent with newer washer/dryers. They have a arcade with a batting cage and a 6 lane bowling alley (for a fee) that was very nice. Pizza available with delivery to your RV. Nice wooded spaces on the back of the park. In the front of the park sites were much closer together but they seemed to be used for RV's that were just stopping for the night. Bathrooms and showers were well maintained and clean. Camp store was well stocked with reasonable prices. - Margie H

A great, fairly basic RV park located convenient to I-81 and a Flying J but still very quiet and peaceful. All pull-through sites, FHU, gravel or concrete pad with a picnic table, either sun or shade. Bathrooms, laundry, and a game room are all modern and clean. Easy and friendly check-in. Lots of grassy areas for walking a large dog. Easy in and out so good for an overnight but nice enough for a longer stay. I wish there were more campgrounds like this along our interstate highways. - JoyceM

This is a very good park in a rural setting just off I-81. Reception was friendly and efficient. FHU pull thru site was plenty long, gravel, with a small concrete patio and picnic table. Site was well shaded, utilities very good including an impressive cable lineup. WIFI a bit slow. Bathrooms/showers were very clean and the laundry quite satisfactory. Access thru park and site was easy. - whodat

I stayed at this campground just passing through on my way to North Carolina from Michigan. The first thing that struck me about this campground was the long, long, long hill you have to climb to get to it. There's a tiny building at the top of the hill where the camp hosts will meet you and check you in. They led me to my site and when they asked if I needed anything else,I said that the site wasn't quite level And I wondered if they had something else. Since I was just there for the night I didn't want to bother with leveling when I wasn't even disconnecting from my vehicle. Instead of offering to move me to one of the other many spots they were open, they told me that it was not a big deal that I was level enough. It was a big enough deal that I did level. They told me that they recommended that I put water in my tank rather than use the outside hose because it was predicted to get quite cold that night. I did as they suggested and they were right. It got down to 19° and I did have a freeze. Luckily no damage was done but it was quite frustrating. It did allow me to check out their bath house which was very nice and clean. The campground is in a lovely setting with huge green space, the size of several football fields, with a big pavilion and a long, lovely walk around the creek and a pavilion and play area, however the campsites themselves are right on top of each other with no trees or anything to separate them. The utilities were easy to use, although I didn't use the sewer because I was just passing through for the night and didn't need it. They had cable but I could not get it to work, I don't know if it was my hook up or what but that did not work for me. They had Wi-Fi and I was able to use that. - Donna In GR

Nice sized pull thrus, level side to side, includes cable tv, decent wifi. Really nice looking campsite with a creek running across the back. Only negative is highway noise but that quiets down at night, never stopped us from sleeping. Nice camp hosts, will lend you cable for tv if you don't have one.
Nicely located for side trips sight seeing and shopping for necessities. - papaken

A major, mechanical break-down on I-77 turned us into temporary full-time residents at the Carrollwood RV Park, waiting for a new axle and related parts. Their weekly rate is $108 with a monthly rate of $300 (plus tax).
The CG is a grassy, hill-side knoll with back-in, pull-thru, and tent sites but none of them are very long. The CG was built back in the days when a "big rig" was a 30' travel trailer. Parking our 40' fiver was tricky. Big coaches and Prevosts need not bother. Sites are uneven grass, not very level, varying from basic, no utilities, up to FHU-30/50. Lots of tall, old growth trees and narrow, gravel-and-dirt roads in the park. Asphalt roads from the entrance to the office. There are cabins for rent. Office is usually closed but there is a phone number to the camp host. Office has some soft-drinks and snacks and a few RVing necessities. Two ponds offer fisherpersons their happy time. No pool/spa or other amenities. A very old, open-air barn is rented out for parties, weddings, and the like. I inspected the men's restroom/showers and would not use them. Ex-laundry room is now a storage locker. - StephenK

This was our first time in our new Montana and the first time in an RV camp ground. Has the nicest and most helpful owners. He guided us to our level site and helped with the hook ups. It is a quiet, beautiful and peaceful area. We would return. - Frances Ann

This park was cooler than the other areas we visited in the east. Lots of nice pine trees. Very tight narrow turn by office to get to sites. Big rigs and motor homes with toads would have great difficulty. We had to back up a few times to get into that narrow road. Not much room to swing around to get in straight. The park has NO water pressure. You would have trouble taking a shower or doing anything with water. Mentioned to office lady and she said they had 35 pounds of water pressure. Most RV parks have more than that! All we got was a very small stream out of the faucets. - dustytuu

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. - Bamagolfer

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. - WendyJayne

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. - 5th Wheel Cal
