Nice setting with all the amenities: pools, mini golf, game room, laundry, etc., but minimally maintained. Not as nice as the photos.
Kids everywhere. Park is used as a field trip destination for local daycares and schools. - WendyJayne

We stayed 5 nights. The staff was very friendly, and helpful. The only down side is that they could use better WiFi system. The best spot to pick it up is around the office and pool areas. Due to the area the campground is in, it's a bit hilly. The grounds are well kept. There are plenty of things for the kids do. The only "Cell Phone" service available is Verizon, due to the campground's location. - md_procouple

This "resort" is part of the Legacy Resort network. It is outside of Hillsville reached by a series of country roads. The driveway in has a fork in the road, straight ahead for the office and right turn to the lower sites lot, none of which is marked by sign and to further confuse you they put a check-in type guard shack offset toward the left fork, which invites you to go right to look for office, find none at the lower site lot, then go back to other fork. And the dirt roads at the lower site lot are horribly rutted and pot-holed, great for driving a 40' + a toad on. Once at the office, we found the upper lot consisted mostly of member lots (they actually buy their lots) and the lower lot was for transient campers such as us. It took us 3 different lots to find one that would not hit "excessive slope" on our leveling jacks. And the one we were able to level on had duct tape wrapped around the water spigot, which, when turned on, created a fountain the leak was so bad. The bathrooms and showers looked like a remodel that was stalled in-progress, fairly fresh tile but buckling walls, no baseboards. Needless to say, we were not happy with this one and will not return, ever. - rvrrat520

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

We stayed here for one night on our way north and four nights on our way back south. Very friendly owners. Full services: 50 amp electric, water, sewer. Good Wi-Fi . Most sites are pull-through but some are sloped somewhat at the sides where one would enter and exit the rig. Not too much that can be done about that since the majority of the sites are on the side of a hill. There's a good number of seasonal and permanent units but all are kept neat. We like the proximity to Mt. Airy, Galax, and Meadows of Dan. The elevation keeps the place cooler than other places at lower elevation. - halfdimes

The park was clean and the owners were very nice. The tough part is the campground is on a mountain and very hard to level (we have a leveling system and were still about 1-2 degrees off level). We could have leveled if we had disconnected, but we didn't want to go through the hassle (a quick overnight). Do not attempt to get in the park after dark. The views were great and the park was pet friendly. Would stay there again. - bbnh2000

We stayed here for an overnight on our way north. We are in a 22' Class C camper. Campground is close to the highway. Road in is a little steep but straight and we had no problem getting here. Friendly couple operates it. There are a lot of permanent rigs here but everyone seems friendly. Bathrooms are older but clean. Laundry is available. Sites are grass but fairly level. Nice view of foothills. No trees where we were, but for an overnight that is fine. Campground is clean and well kept. WiFi works great. We would stop here again. - BorntoCruise

Nice park, we had issues finding it but we were also very tired. Once in the staff were nice and helpful. Store wasn't much so make sure you have what you need. There was a dear that was roaming around and it seems it has become somewhat of a pet to the park. was a young one as well. site were easy in and out. - cbrew

We arrived off the interstate and found it very difficult to find the road to the campground. The road in was very tight. The roads throughout the campground are very tight. The trip out and back to the interstate wasn't any easier. The campground is old and all the sights are in need of repair and landscaping. - hvacrv46

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

This campground is under new ownership. Very nice people! I believe they said they had just celebrated their first anniversary. It is just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Easy, easy access. It's in a very nice setting with a great view. Appears to have been an apple orchard at some point. Our site was smallish, but it seems like most people just use this as home base while they explore the Parkway. Some of the other sites looked larger. They have several what appear to be one room cabins that are cute as a button. They cater to motorcyclist. There was some walking trails but we didn't have time to check them out. The best thing is the bathhouse. It was a building with 5 (pretty sure that was the count) separate large bathrooms with toilet, sink, shower and bench. I love this concept! They were incredibly clean! The shower could be a little bigger, but that is a minor factor. There was even a deck all around with a couple chairs in case you had someone waiting for you. - wvbassmistress

This campground is lovely, clean, quiet and well kept. The owner goes the extra mile to make you feel welcome. He even helped us set up and arrived at 6:30 AM to help us hook back up when we left as he knew we were not very familiar with the process.
The two private baths are spacious and spotless. The fact that the campground is in the "holler" seems to keep it a bit cooler than the surrounding area in the summer.
We loved the campground, Fries, the New River Trail and the old time music. A great place to get away from the rat race!
Note: If you stay in site #7 it is like having your own private restroom/shower. - Ginny1

Great small park with wonderful owners. Lots to do in the area. Camped in a 45 foot motorhome. Suggest you call the owners, when you get near to get specific directions. We also disconnect our toad in Galax with the toad preceding the RV talking radios to make sure traffic is clear at the curves.
Verizon cell phone service is not good. You can activate WiFi on your smart phone using the parks WiFi to make and receive calls.
Attend the Fries jam on Thursday nights in the town recreation buildings for a great taste of old timey and mountain music. - eaglessoc

We stayed for almost a week and overall, had a wonderful and relaxing time. It's about 20 miles off I-77, nestled in a 'holler' across from New River State Park and trail, surrounded by tall trees. The owner was great, always available and took obvious care of his park. Sites are hard packed pea gravel, fairly level with conveniently located hookups. There's a lot of privacy between sites. It's very quiet at night. Most sites are pull-thrus but a couple were pull-ins. Wifi was great. To get cable, you have to pick up a box from the office.
The park is missing a few amenities - no dog park, no laundry facilities, no pool, no playground, no fire ring. You can rent bikes at the office and the New River Trail is right across the street. The park is not easy to get to, especially if you have a big rig. But the park itself is big rig friendly. Just be sure to follow the directions EXACTLY as written on the website. Also, no credit cards accepted. You make a deposit via PayPal and pay the rest in cash when you arrive. Still, this is a gem of a park and we will certainly return. - Flippitti

This was a pleasant surprise. Travel from the highway was quick and easy. The staff was very friendly and led us to our site. Our site was very level but I could see others that were not. There was plenty of room between sites with some small tress. The grounds were exceptionally well kept and very clean. There were many permanent sites but they were well kept. For us this was a perfect overnight stop. On the down side, the road noise from Rt81 very noticeable.
We would definitely stay here again. - SchnoodleCamp

This campground is just under 2 miles off I-81 Exits 81 and 84. The drive up the driveway is a bit narrow but easily navigated while towing. The owner and camp hosts could not have been nicer. A flowing stream with a gentle waterfall border the campground provide a for relaxing walks. While there appear to be a number of seasonal campers, they were extremely welcoming. Our only complaint is that the first site we were assigned was not very level and we requested and were allowed to change (a little well-placed gravel would do wonders). We would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to others! - dandd

Lovely park. Our first stay here, but not our last. I agree the hill going up to the park is a little daunting, but we had no trouble with a 40' motorhome towing a truck! The grounds are neatly kept, the staff was very friendly. Happened to be a wedding that weekend and it was so nice to see how helpful they were to the families planning the event. Very nice. No problem leveling, good electric, water and cable. - Lucky Lady from Florida

Ft Chiswell is a frequent stop for us as we travel up and down I-81 and I-77. It's very convenient to both, and is located just a short distance over a ridge that blocks most highway noises. The park is well maintained with well placed utilities, and there are pull-thru sites that will accommodate nearly any sized RV. The free WiFi is strong with moderate speeds, although it can bog down some when the park is near full. Our Verizon and T-Mobile signals were strong with good data speeds. The free cable service is good as well, and most sites are satellite friendly. We will be returning here. - NYDutch

The heated pool was 80 degrees and delightful! Staff in the office was very friendly. This is the type of park we love - all amenities, cable, good wifi from our site, full hookups and things to do. We have stayed here twice before and will definitely come back. - Ginny H

We stayed here 4 years ago. They have made lots of upgrades. Our site was a pull through, long and level. The wifi was good. Staff was friendly. Utilities worked great. - padre

A wonderful rv park, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Sites are large. Great wifi; no cable.
Didn't see any playground equipment if you need that for little ones. But for those campers who just want a good place to stay, you can't beat it. Lots to do in the area. - ljohio

A clean, organized and well-managed RV Park with long level spacious sites. Interior roads and sites are hard packed gravel so there's no dust. All sites have full hookups and 50 amps. WiFi was available and most sites are open to the sky for on air channels. There's no off leash dog park, cable, pool or playground but there's plenty to see around the area. Also water pressure seemed a little low so we didn't use a pressure regulator. Laundry room was super clean. It's $1 each to wash and dry and it's on the honor system so you deposit money into a box on the wall. Bathrooms and showers were also super clean. It's apparent that the owner takes a lot of pride in this park and manages it well. It's a nice quiet campground perfect for decompressing and getting away for awhile. Owner is on the premises, available and has plans for future improvements. This is truly a gem of a park that we plan to return to in the future. - Flippitti

The family decided to spend Labor Day Weekend in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia at the last minute. We looked called the office at the Meadows of Dan Campground and were pleased that they had a site with water and power for Saturday and Sunday nights.
The campground is located right off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Meadows of Dan. The road into the park was filled with pot holes, but we were warned about them before arriving. The campground was fairly full with large trailers and RVS. We were the only tent trailer. The grounds are on a hill, but the sites were mostly level.
The facilities were clean and close to the camping loop. The restrooms were small, but nice. Each trailer site had water, electric, sewer, a fire ring, picnic table, and a charcoal grill. There is a small playground and athletic field near the sites. We especially enjoyed the large field and hill that allowed for some great stargazing on Sunday night.
The campground is near the town of Meadows of Dan with a small grocery store, gift shops, a restaurant, and a candy factory. One mile north on the Blue Ridge Parkway is Mabry Mill. Hillsville is 21 miles west and home to a large flea market/festival on Labor Day Weekend.
We enjoyed our stay and wish it could have been longer. We will return in the future. - dmaerz

We fell in love with this park! Very clean, in a rural setting with gorgeous sunsets. Park is up a hill surrounded by rolling meadows dotted with neat little cabins. We had a pull-through site but down below are some back-in sites. There were only 2 other RVs near us so we felt almost like we had the place to ourselves. Would definitely return. - Poolhall

Our GPS really led us astray on this one, and took us all round the place, and without a "good" address, it was a tough drive, to say the least...then, when we got there, at about 5:15, the office was closed and it was raining. The office is at the bottom, then you drive up a very steep hill to reach their small campground that is pretty much a flattened hill with gravel sites laid out. There was only one other RV there, so we just pulled into a site and settled in for the night. It was still raining really hard the next morning, and I had already pre-paid, so we just packed up and left early. I left a phone msg for the owners, but they never called back. Wasn't impressed and don't think we'll return if we can help it. - MarieB
