We stayed here for the entire month of October. The owner of the park was always at work around the park manicuring the park to perfection. Both the owner and his wife made us feel like family. They were constantly giving us ideas of things to do and see. The park is very close to the New River Trail for hiking and biking. There is so much to see and do in the area that we have made reservations for a return trip next year. The small quaint town has music every Thursday night with locals playing and singing. Thanks to the owners for having the foresight to create such a nice small park where one can have a quiet, wonderful vacation. This park has so much to offer it's hard to put it in a short forum. It must be experienced to appreciate. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed three days and enjoyed the Festival at the River in Fries. Excellent privately owned campground, well manicured and exceptional service from the owners. One of our favorite getaways as it is a quiet very relaxing atmosphere. Tom and Delieta are great hosts. Will be back soon. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

It is located in the middle of a quaint, friendly little town nestled in a notch in the Blue Ridge Mountains. This is an ideal place to relax, unwind, and enjoy all the area has to offer. The New River and the New River Trail (biking and hiking) are just a short walk away from the park. There is an old time country music jam session on Thursday evening on the main street in Fries, and a concert at the campground on Saturday evening. The sites are level with full hookups and a good distance apart. There is a water wheel and a small stream running through the campground. The greeting room/office, or the porch are both good places to relax in a rocking chair. The bathrooms and showers are large, immaculate and beautifully decorated. The owners are so friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They provide delicious homemade muffins on your arrival. We have stayed here twice and hope to return often.

We stayed here three nights and loved this RV park. It is quiet and we were in Site #12 with a wood deck beside it, overlooking the creek that runs through the campground. On Saturday night the owner, Tom Guy, invited all the campers to hear a local country/western singer, John Wesley Carpenter. He was excellent and sang or told us about himself and the area from 7:30 - 9:30 PM. Wonderful, unexpected entertainment. We bought one of his CDs, and were able to meet all of the others staying at the campground. Campground is within walking distance to New River, which we enjoyed, plus walking through a little town that probably once was very productive. We plan to return another year when the fall leaves are in full color. We camped here in a truck/camper, but the sites are large so motor homes would have no problems getting in or out. We usually stay in campgrounds that are pretty busy, so this was different and a great experience. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Truck Camper.

This is an excellent small park. The only reason I didn't score it a "10" is because the road and sites are gravel not paved, and I personally reserve 10's for paved parks. It is nearly new and very well kept. It is located in a small "hollow", with a stream to one side and a road going up--most of the sites are between the road and the stream, one behind the other. The host is very affable, and the Saturday night sing song was very enjoyable. The area is remote, and the roads to get to it are winding and narrow, so be advised.

Like the other reviews above, we found this to be one of the nicest RV parks we've ever stayed at. We took some scenic pictures of the park with the motorhome in front of the little creek that runs through the park. It is only 15 miles from Interstate 77 and well worth the couple of extra miles to stay away from the Interstate. It was really quiet both day and night. There is a lot of space between sites. Tom, the owner, is a walking Chamber of Commerce for the area. He was very helpful to us and made sure we had plenty of things to see and do.

This is one of the best RV parks we're ever stayed in. It is a fairly new park and the owner continues to make improvements in the landscaping. While it is small, it is very well laid out and maintained and can accommodate large RVs. It is very quiet and peaceful. It's a great place to come to and just relax. The park is very close to the New River Trail for biking or walking and the river is just the other side of the trail. We have enjoyed riding on the trail, which is an old railroad bed, so it is an easy ride with great views of the river and mountains. The river is great for fishing, tubing and canoing. The park in located in Fries Virginia but is only a few miles from Galax and of course Wal-Mart! The park has wireless Internet service for those who need access and it has worked well during both of our visits. The owner and his wife have been extremely friendly and helpful to us both times we've stayed at this park. The area has beautiful views and we've really enjoyed traveling the back roads. We hope to make frequent visits to this park. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park in a pretty place with great owners. It's located a short walk from the New River where there is rafting and a great walking/bike trail. The surrounding mountains and parks are great for exploring and views and the Blue Ridge Parkway is a short drive. This was our second visit and we will return.

Campground is new, two years in operation, and is very well maintained. Owner Tom Guy exemplifies what customer service should be - friendly, helpful and available. Campground is convenient to the New River Trail State Park where we enjoyed bike riding and hiking. Tom and wife took a van load of us campers to nearby Galax on Friday evening to enjoy a bluegrass music concert - a nice amenity. There is no swim area and no playground, so children have to be entertained in other ways. Wifi service first night was shaky, but after Tom rebooted, service was very good rest of our stay. Campground was easy to get in and out of, and was very quiet. We look forward to returning to Fries New River Trail RV Park. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

Congratulations to the family for providing the type of camping experience we all desire. This immaculately maintained RV park is within 1/2 block of the New River and the New River Trails. This park is one of the finest privately owned, non-franchised parks that we have ever stayed in. The residents of Fries are friendly and the local business owners appreciate your support. The homemade muffins and occasional complimentary breakfasts are a great treat and extremely appreciated. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is simply wonderful, and the town of Fries has the friendliest people around. Our site had a deck overlooking a small stream. The bathrooms are spotless. The landscaping is beautiful. The owners bring you fresh muffins every day, and are willing to chat any time. The location can't be beat. You're within walking distance of the New River Trail State Park for bicycling, and the New River for swimming or kayaking. You can put your kayak in at the town park 2 blocks away or go up the road 3 miles and rent a canoe at Riverside Outfitters. I wish we could have stayed longer! We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We visited this park again over the Fourth of July and had an awesome time. If you are in this area and are looking for a home away from home, then you need to check out this park. The owners are very personable and will go above and beyond to accommodate. We will definitely return as soon as possible. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.

The campground is located in a little mountain river town with a very interesting history and at the trail head for the New River biking and hiking trail which extends for 57 miles along the river through gorgeous mountain scenery. The camp owners have created a "bed and breakfast" atmosphere and the campground is very, very clean and well thought out. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting them, visiting with the folks in the small town and riding the trail. The autumn leaves, rippling shoals of the shallow river, homemade quiche and muffins, and the miles of easy biking will definitely bring us back soon. We stayed a week in a Class B motorhome.

Nice campground. Owners are great. There is only one bathroom/shower combo for each available. Might not be a problem with only 12 sites but a potential line at the bathroom door is there. Children are welcome but there are no recreational facilities on site for them. Multi use path nearby (a few blocks) for riding bicycle and enjoying river views.

Fries RV Park is unlike any other. My family cannot wait to go back. The owner's are genuinely nice, extremely accommodating and a true joy to be around. We were able to ride our bicycles along the New River Trail and take a canoe trip down the New River. We enjoyed the friendliness of the people of the town and were also lucky enough to get a private tour of downtown Fries. We camped at Fries New River Trail RV Park in a Motorhome.
