Nice small campground with very nice and helpful owner. The cable TV is a problem as they have to come to your site and hook it up. The Wi-Fi worked well. Fries is a very small town with a nice town park along the river. The only real attraction is the New River Trail which less than 1/2 mile away. It is for walking, bicycles and horses. It is a mostly level trail that follows the new river down stream. Returning up stream is not difficult though. As it was October, the canoe outfitters were closed except on the weekends. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

Follow directions to park as detailed on park's website. We disconnected tow car in Galax and used 2 way radio with tow car as pilot car. Cell service (Verizon) is very weak. Park free internet is outstanding. We've stayed in sites 11 and 14 with no problems getting DirecTV. Sites are wonderful as well as the owners. Stream runs by each site. Interior road and sites are gravel with outstanding landscaping. Great shade morning and mid to late afternoon. Lot of things to do in Fries and near by Galax. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

We loved this campground. Small, but beautifully contoured up a little valley right in the small town of Fries. The owner is charming and the CG is his baby! Friends had recommended this place. If you like Bluegrass, it's close to the Crooked Road area of Virginia. Sites are covered in pea gravel and are level. Fully intend to camp here again. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an awesome RV Park. The owners are friendly and helpful. The sites are large and very well maintained. The park is always clean and very well maintained. This park is not one of the biggest parks, but it is without a doubt one of the best RV parks - anywhere. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an excellent park. The drive to the park must be carefully driven, if you have a long RV. We camped in a 45 foot motor home towing a car. Follow the directions on their website to the letter. We would suggest to disconnect a towed vehicle in nearby Galax, if driving a long motor home. The owner's are wonderful. The park is beautifully located in a hollow. Nice fog in the morning burning off later. Shade is enjoyed for most of the day because the park is located in a hollow. Sat TV was not a problem. Included WiFi and digital cable TV worked well. Verizon cell was weak or non-existent. Park is very quiet except for the babbling creek right next to your site and occasional dogs barking in the distance. Fries is in the middle of bluegrass and old time music. Take advantage of it and the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

Why can't all be like this? Because then this place wouldn't be special. If you read the other reviews you already know the owners are great, the place is manicured and clean, it is very quiet (and I am a musician so I am not a quiet freak) and we have a a true babbling brook next to our bedroom window. Our site was 11 and in this area the RVs are parked nose to rear so you never have a neighbor outside your window. We had turkeys in our picnic area the first morning we woke up. We are full-timers, but I still work from "home" and Internet is business critical. The wi-fi smokes. This is better than any park we visited. Our Dish satellite system works fine and I was told Direct TV works, as well. My company AT&T phone does not work, but our Verizon iPhones work with occasional dropped calls. Still not enough to lower the 5 star rating. While we have stayed many places before, this is only our 2nd stay since full-timing. We are doing month long stays in order to accommodate my business needs. Today was the first time we agreed we are happy with life on what we call our Magical Mystery Tour. We will always return here when in the area. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

Had a very enjoyable time in Fries Park and the surrounding area. Campground was spotless as were the restrooms! Owner was sick during our visit, so did not meet him, but his wife was there and brought us delicious pumpkin muffins for breakfast one morning. A small campground that seems to have many repeat campers. Will definitely be back again! We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

We've stayed here three times and would definitely stay again. I found this park looking for a place where you could camp and bike directly to the New River Trail. It is so much more than a campground! The owners welcome you and provide homemade muffins for your first morning breakfast. They often offer weekend social events, like local music or ice cream. There is a porch with rockers at the office that overlooks the stream and a water wheel. The bathrooms, always very clean, include a shower, sink and toilet. Since most people use their RV bathroom, we usually don't have to wait for one. I wish this place would remain a "best kept secret." We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Tent Trailer.

Beautiful, well maintained park with the friendliest campground hosts you will ever meet! They provided a hotdog supper one evening and homemade ice cream the next evening. We met friendly campers and had a great time. The New River provides plenty of scenic views and was the backdrop for a free concert by a talented musician on Saturday night. Stop by the Caboose for ice cream. The camping sites are bordered by a small stream. Some have decks and porch swings. Bathrooms are spotless. We will be back!

This is one of the campgrounds my family loves. This is a very well-kept park tucked into a little valley. The location adjacent to the New River Rail Trail and the New River make this a great long weekend stop. There aren't a lot of other distractions so don't come expecting a lot to do. The hosts are very friendly and always bring by a treat sometime after check-in which is a great touch. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I had made reservations and told the owner that we would be arriving around 3PM. The motorhome overheated with a broken belt (14 miles from our exit) and I called to tell him that we should cancel, because I wasn't sure if/when a repair would occur. At 10pm, we were ready to roll and I called asking if our site was still available and could we still come. Owner was pleasant and said yes then calling back and saying he would meet us in Galax as the road to the campground is dark and winding. We followed him to the campground and his wife had sent pumpkin raisin muffins with him which proved a wonderful late night snack. Our site was a pull through gravel base and was very level. Cable and Wi-Fi were and added bonus to the wonderfully naturalized site. We did not have AT&T reception for the cell, but the excellent Wi-Fi let us text to keep in touch at home. The park is in downtown Fries, and in walking distance to the New River Trail, town park, Fries Theater (great jam sessions on Thursday evenings) and a good Mexican Restaurant. Bring a bicycle as the trail is quite scenic along the river. Canoes, kayaks and bikes are available to rent close by. Dog walking was slightly restrictive but we had no trouble. This park surely is a classic form of Southern Hospitality and we will definitely return. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The owner met us upon arrival and directed us to our site. We had a problem with our steps and he gave us the name of the RV doctor. The park is very well maintain. The owner was very attentive to any thing we needed. He even loaned me his cell phone as mine wouldn't get out. We stayed in site #6 which is all gravel. But was a great site, it had shade all day long. We loved this camp ground so much, we have already booked for next Memorial week. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

Well worth the effort to get to. The owner was wonderful, greeting us when we arrived with fresh pumpkin muffins. Handy to the trail and many places of interest. Park is small but beautifully done with roomy, level sites. Great TV and Wi-Fi reception. Bathrooms are clean and spacious. Nice roomy showers with lots of hot water. We will be back and spend more time here as there is lots to see and do. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent park and owner. Very informative and friendly. Super location to New River bike trail. Could use a little more water pressure in the shower. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

Let me first say, the website makes this park look amazing. It was right in the middle of downtown Fries. I understand there is a great bike trail close which we did not use. It is not an easy place and is not on a direct route. The owner is very nice and gave us muffins from his wife. The last site is probably the nicest. The WiFi was sketchy and we did not have a cable hookup. We will not return. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.
