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! We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Wonderful! We have stayed here a couple of times and love it! It's quiet and beautiful. Small brook next to each site. Peaceful to drink my morning coffee and listen to the brook and the birds. Has terrific hosts. Everything is within walking distance. Also has near by bike, hiking trails and the New River. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here for the second time in April, 2011. This campground is quiet, has beautiful well-kept landscaping, and level sites. Cleanest bathrooms I've seen in any campground. The sites are very easy to get into and are a generous size. Wireless internet and cable TV worked great. We love sitting by the camper listening to the small stream that runs nearby. The campground is very close to the New River Trail, and we normally ride on the trail each visit. The owner is wonderful, very friendly and helpful. We will be back for sure.

Very unique RV resort! Absolutely spotless! We were on site 2 which has a waterwheel and a large elevated deck. Super easy to back into, and site is absolutely level. The owner is a genuinely nice person that really did an outstanding job of building this park, and his wife (didn't meet her) makes great muffins!
