We have been there for two weeks now and love the park and the Manager. I have to say that while it is clean, neat and well laid out, there are some negatives. The WiFi is weak, there is virtually NO cell service and there is not much to do. On the plus side, it is close to the Blueridge Parkway, a few miles, close to good country restaurants, quiet, nice scenery and large sites. Full hookups are at most sites but some are lacking sewer. We camped at Cool Breeze Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Small 3 hole pitching golf greens, horseshoes, walking.

First, your GPS may try to send you to the Deer Creek RV Resort next door. There is no affiliation between that and Cool Breeze so look for the signs to make sure you go to the right place. The folks are very friendly and low-key. The owner wasn’t there when we arrived and we were told we’d cross paths with him during the week and we could settle up then, which we did 3 days into our stay. For those camping with children, there is nothing here at all for the youngsters. My rating reflects gravel roads, no fire pits, few outdoor tables and little to no shade. There is, however, a very large community-sized fire pit in front of the office. Other than that, this campground is a quiet, beautifully maintained wide open field and a great place to use as a base while exploring on the Blue Ridge Parkway or following the Virginia Music Trail. It is about 5 miles from the BR Music Center and an easy drive to Galax and Floyd, both popular music centers in the area, as well as Mount Airy and various wineries. The air is cool and breezy, hence the name. We only used our air conditioner once while camping in August, and that was to handle the humidity from an overnight rain. The bathhouse is ‘eat off the floor’ clean and kept immaculate, in good repair and well stocked. The laundry sparkles as well. Laundry is $1 per load paid into a box on the honor system. One person who is seasonal said the washers and dryers were too slow. While I didn’t use them, at a cost of $1 a load and the ability to sit and read in a nice, clean, air-conditioned room while waiting, I thought it was great. I understand that those on the road all the time might disagree. The roads are all gravel and in good shape. The sites are wide, level gravel pads with plenty of room between sites. There are no picnic tables although many sites had large wood tables that could be used to eat outdoors as long as you have chairs. The owner and one camper put in a nice garden and campers are invited to help themselves to its produce, which is a very unique and nice touch. The grounds are kept well mowed. There is no cable. We got 9 channels over the air. There is Wi-Fi which has a booster to improve its signal but it diminished after additional campers arrived. Same for the phone service. You might have to walk up closer to the office to get the best reception for a call. Or, you could just unplug for the week and enjoy the peace and quiet! We will definitely return to Cool Breeze.

This is a nice clean park. Staff and owner are very friendly and welcoming. There is no cable anymore but antenna reception is good and DirecTV and Dish Network reception is fine. Quiet area, mostly level spots on gravel. No picnic tables. Price was with the FMCA $4 discount. A comfortable place to stay when exploring the SW Virginia/ NW NC area. Only about a mile off the Parkway. We camped at Cool Breeze Campground in a Motorhome.

Clean and well maintained park. Secure Wi-Fi signal was weak but usable at our site. Nice sized level sites. Owner very friendly and helpful. Reasonable price. Cable was very basic but with good signal. Very close to Blue Ridge Parkway at the VA-NC state line. Verizon phone service was poor, but owner had a booster in the office building and calls could be made there. We would stay there again. We camped at Cool Breeze Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We recently camped at Cool Breeze Campground in Galax, VA. This is a beautiful area of the country, and we enjoyed a quiet, relaxing stay. The campground has much open space. We have a class A motor coach, so I liked the open space and easy site access. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. I'm going to suggest to our camping club that we have a rally at Cool Breeze later in the year. We camped at Cool Breeze Campground in a Motorhome.

Park not as expected: some confusion with old Deer Creek name that is now an exclusive RV resort next door. Cable is limited. WiFi didn't work for a time, but was fixed. No amenities or shade. Hook ups were fine and sites were large. We'd stay here again because there is nothing else nearby that is available. We camped at Cool Breeze Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice campground just two miles off the Parkway. The office was closed but following the instructions to pick your site, grab your Wi-Fi and bathroom codes, drop the money in a box was easy. All sites are spacious, gravel and provide good accessibility to the hookups. However, it was hard to find a level one. Most sites are sloped. No shade and nothing but grass between the sites. No picnic tables or fire pits. VERY quiet at night. Best Wi-Fi we ever experienced on a campground ever. Super-fast and reliable. We didn't use any facilities. When we return to the Parkway we will stay again in this campground. We camped at Cool Breeze Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It is very clean and well kept. I would have given them a "10" but there were no picnic tables to be seen in the section we were in. The table that was provided was small and too tall to pull chairs up to it. We camped at Cool Breeze Campground in a Motorhome.

Spacious sites, friendly on-site and available owners. Few trees, but plenty of room for taking the dog for a walk. Good cable TV and fast internet. For our AT&T phone, had to travel 12 miles for reception. As stated, mostly an adult park. Two RV clubs were having rallies while we were here. Nice and quiet. Would definitely stay here again for longer than a week. Stayed here in a fifth wheel. We camped at Cool Breeze Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice level, spacious, gravel sites. Park is on a slight slope which makes for stadium-style parking of the units. Sites are also staggered so you are not DIRECTLY next to your neighbor. The spaces are long which gives you plenty of room to park you car or toad. Very clean park. Bathrooms and laundry areas are spotless! No charge to use the washers and dryers but there is an "Honor Box" for donations so don't be a cheapskate: DONATE! Easy check-in and and hosts are most accommodating. No shade, but, hey, you're in the mountains and the countryside is beautiful so suck it up. The town of Galax is a neat, "old-timer" town complete with farmers market, antique and gift shops. Wi-Fi can be a bit spotty and no service with our AT&T cell phone, but if you have a phone calling card, you can use the one in the office. Some of the sites back up to a 9 hole, par 3 golf course belonging to the adjacent campground, but for the week we were there, did not see a single sole using it so that makes these sites very private. Would highly recommend this park if you are staying in the area. Geared mostly for adults, this is a good destination place to pull in, kick back and enjoy the peaceful setting and stay a bit. Would we return? YOU BETCHA! We camped at Cool Breeze Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the friendly, helpful manager. We chose an easy back-in site with a nice view of the surrounding hills & farms. The restrooms & laundry in the club house/office were exceptionally clean & large. Very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Just wished they had a pool for the warm summer afternoons.

Great campground! We drove NC 89 from the south, and it was narrow and winding. Recommend coming in on 89 from the north and I-77. Take the truck route (left) before you get to Galax to avoid downtown Galax. Campground has level gravel sites with full service. Not many shade trees, so satellite service is good. Owners are very nice and friendly. Very scenic views, but not much to do for kids at the campground. Great restaurants nearby, and plenty of bluegrass music nearby on the weekends. Will definitely stay here again. We camped at Cool Breeze Campground in a Motorhome.

We were here for an FMCA motorhome rally. It was the second time here. This was a great campground for a rally or an overnight stay. Very friendly folks. The only negative was that some sites were not level, or at least we had to move the coach on the site to find a level spot. The campground was close to good restaurants and shopping. We will return here in the future. We camped at Cool Breeze Campground in a Motorhome.
