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

Nice park. Mostly pull-throughs. Most spots are in a large field and some are in a very lovely woods, which is certainly large enough to wander around in. I would say this place is more geared towards older folks, but there is no reason you can't bring children. We felt safe there. - FloridaWanderers

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 arrived at Fancy Gap KOA at 1:00 pm and the employee was nice and my husband thought she told him site 77. They did not take us to our site. The road into the park was narrow and had tight turns. At 8:00 pm a rude employee came and told us we were in the wrong spot and that we had to move to site 79 because another trailer had arrived and they had reserved this site. We packed up and moved in the dark as it was our mistake. The sites were unlevel with drop offs covered in thick leaves. We did not see any security for 3 days. - Darlene Ashford

Just stopped for an overnight, so experience was limited. Very nice property, sites are cut into the hill so the interior roads are hilly. Very cool atmosphere with lots of trees and the terrain. The staff led us to our site upon arrival which was nice. Excellent bathrooms. - Dat

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 is a small park owned and managed by one of the friendliest and helpful hosts I've run across. The park is very quiet. The spaces are all large and easily accessible even with larger rigs. The sites are gravel as are the roads. The wifi was excellent but Verizon cell coverage here is pretty poor. Access to the New River Trail State Park is nearby and you can jump on the trail in a number locations very convenient to the park.
This owner obviously prides himself in the park looking nice, neat and clean. The restroom/shower was spotless. Would definitely stay again. - TLL

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

I stayed at this campground just passing through on my way to North Carolina from Michigan. The first thing that struck me about this campground was the long, long, long hill you have to climb to get to it. There's a tiny building at the top of the hill where the camp hosts will meet you and check you in. They led me to my site and when they asked if I needed anything else,I said that the site wasn't quite level And I wondered if they had something else. Since I was just there for the night I didn't want to bother with leveling when I wasn't even disconnecting from my vehicle. Instead of offering to move me to one of the other many spots they were open, they told me that it was not a big deal that I was level enough. It was a big enough deal that I did level. They told me that they recommended that I put water in my tank rather than use the outside hose because it was predicted to get quite cold that night. I did as they suggested and they were right. It got down to 19° and I did have a freeze. Luckily no damage was done but it was quite frustrating. It did allow me to check out their bath house which was very nice and clean. The campground is in a lovely setting with huge green space, the size of several football fields, with a big pavilion and a long, lovely walk around the creek and a pavilion and play area, however the campsites themselves are right on top of each other with no trees or anything to separate them. The utilities were easy to use, although I didn't use the sewer because I was just passing through for the night and didn't need it. They had cable but I could not get it to work, I don't know if it was my hook up or what but that did not work for me. They had Wi-Fi and I was able to use that. - Donna In GR

Nice sized pull thrus, level side to side, includes cable tv, decent wifi. Really nice looking campsite with a creek running across the back. Only negative is highway noise but that quiets down at night, never stopped us from sleeping. Nice camp hosts, will lend you cable for tv if you don't have one.
Nicely located for side trips sight seeing and shopping for necessities. - papaken

This year round park is a regular two night stop for us as we travel up and down I-81 and I-77. The staff are always friendly and do their best to meet any special requests. There were not many guests here this time, since it was January. The utilities were well placed for us, and our Verizon and AT&T cell services were strong. The free cable TV and WiFi both worked well. Our site had a clear view for our satellite dish. The park is very quiet, with just occasional truck noise from the nearby interstate. We will definitely be stopping here again. - NYDutch

Nice and close to major highway, but quiet. Open park, good if you use satellite. Cable, 25 stations,was good. $32.50 with GS discount. Little high for the area?? - Long Island Mac
Nov 2016 - $34.00
We arrived after dark. Office was closed and we left check payment in box by the office. We parked in the front section and there was only one other MH there. We had that section all to ourselves. It looked new to us. The back part had more sites occupied and had small modular type homes for sale. The CG is a very open grassy area, very spacious and clean, level sites. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

Located less than 3 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, this is a nice campground with large pull thru and back in spaces. We had a pull thru with full hook up and 50 amp electric. The driveways and site pads are gravel surrounded by grass but there are no trees. There are not any extra facilities but the bathrooms and laundry are super clean and well maintained. Free WiFi worked very well for us. Nothing fancy here but you get a good value. We paid $32.40 per night after a 10% discount. - Coopsecondact

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
