We stayed 5 nights in our 30' TT. We arrived as Hurricane Mathew was hitting NC. Campground is right beside New River T NC/VA boarder. Drive is a steep but short single car entrance. Office on right, you need to pull past it and turn right to park to check in. We were meet as we got out of care by owner or manager. Checking was quick, we had our choice of re sites because only few camper. It was rainy an owner advised backing in due to wet ground. Larger sites are in front of bathhouse, 30 yard from river. Sites have gravel pad but larger campers may have problems with tow vehicles having space. We used empty space beside us to park. Site do slope towards river and my require extra blocks in front.
Water and power only. Dump site near permit sites, may require some wait during busy times. Power was 30 amps and was stable. Water pressure fine. Tables and fire pits- no grills. Bath house is rustic but has instant hot water so does not run out. Lots are 50/50 shaded.
No wifi but Version was 2 bars LTE or 3G. Did not really check out store. They do have 4 primitive cabins to rent
After 1st night there were only 1-2 campers in campgrounds. It is a good base camp for day trips to Boone, West Jefferson, Galax...
I could see this place rocking hard in summer with younger folks rafting. I would not cal this a "Glamping" place but will come back again. - mj1angier

Beautiful river and mountain views. Showers were clean, and so was the porta potti. However it states "No Alcohol" and in fact it was allowed, numerous campers partying, drinking and being very loud in to the early morning hours. If its a good night sleeps you need, then look elsewhere. It also states "no pets under 15 lbs" when in fact there were dogs there over that limit. While the tent sites were nice and large, We found the campground not very family friendly, and poorly managed. We drove from Florida, over 500 miles, and will not stay there again. - crazyjag

What a joke, they have a dog policy. No dogs over 15lbs allowed. We found that out when we got there, and soon after left. Noisy whining kids and obnoxious partying and these people are worried about dogs? The staff was friendly enough but behind it was the veil of gestapo with rules for this and that. Also the staff rides around a lot on golf carts making the place noisy. It's hard to list all the things we didn't like about this park. It ranks amongst our worst. This is more of a local hangout than a serious campground. - viper-2

Beautiful well kept small campground within walking distance of town, river and bike trail. The campground and bathroom/showers were clean. Check-in and checkout were easy, - KevinS

We loved this place. Very peaceful. Site was beside the creek with a deck that was over the edge of the creek. People were very friendly and helpful. Nice place to walk the dog in the RV park and then on the trail which is across the street. There is a big open park by the river across the street and down a hill. It has picnic tables. Had to drive 20 minutes to Walmart to get AT&T cell signal. Campground had good wifi. Most of the sites are in a row along the creek. There are some that are more private. Call and let them know what you are looking for. It is a beautiful setting. - ClassCdogperson

Fries (freeze) is a tiny town on the New River. The roads to get to the RV park are a bit narrow but we made it fine with a 45' MH and toad. This park is small, and as others have said, beautifully landscaped. There is a stream that runs through the park, and most sites are on the stream. Some sites have decks and others have terracing. All have a swing or a swing nearby. The sites are dark gravel but it is large enough that it isn't attracted to the bottom of your feet. The layout of the park is quite unusual which actually affords more privacy. Some sites are nose to tail and others have more separation. Except for a buddy site, none of the sites are right next to each other. Good job! The park is a bit off the beaten track and, as expected, Verizon coverage is low with 1x and occasionally 3g 1bar. We were able to get texts and minimal phone coverage using our extender. There is a US Cellular tower in Fries so I assume that would work fine. Luckily, the WiFi works great. It slows down periodically and will kick you off after a long while but for the most part we had no problems. DirecTV satellite worked fine in our location. The water pressure is low at 20-25 PSI. For the most part, it is very quiet except for the occasional dog's bark or shooting of firearms (yep, guess that's normal in these here parts). The owners are wonderful - even sharing fresh homemade muffins when you arrive (and they were delicious!). As for payment, they take credit cards for the deposit and cash or check for the balance. The New River bike trail is just across Main street. It is a fairly flat trail that follows the New River. The trail itself is fine gravel, and there is some shade. It was great to have a nice trail so close by. We really enjoyed our time here. It's one of those places to "chillax" sitting outside listening to the creek. Our lounge chairs got plenty of use! - Free

Friendly helpful owners, but none of the sites have a fire ring, picnic table or any trees/shade. - Gapch1024

Would have rated it a 10-but the hubby really needs his sports channels-no cable tv-reception with antenna. Needs things for kids to do-didn't see many children around. Very quiet and clean. Definitely has a breeze going on in this CG. Recommend awnings be tied down. Would be really nice if the Resort next door would share that golf course with this CG. Hubby was a little disappointed about that. The map showed a golf course next to this CG. Matter of fact, never seen anyone from the other resort using it. Hookups are approx. 2-3 feet from each other-recommend extra sewer/water/ and electric hook up. Sites are gravel with minimal leveling required. Stayed in pull thru behind office. Site long enough for tow dolly/Class C/ Kia with extra room. Well spaced from neighbors. Owner has daytrip information with directions-found that to be a nice touch. Nice CG. - n2camping

I really liked this place. Wonderful onsite host. We stayed 2 nights on our way to Maine, in a pull thru, out behind the office. Great views of the forested ridges in a rolling pasture environment. Nice restroom/shower/laundry. Free Bluegrass music everyday noon to 4pm with great local musicians. Fiddlers, banjos, mandolins, standings bass, flute, etc. Just wonderful. This place can be windy, be sure to tie down your awnings! - Eric H

If you are willing to boondock, the NPS campground on the Blue Ridge Parkway is a good bet for you. The campground has a few "reserve ahead" sites and a few first come, first served sites. We were there at the start of the long July 4 weekend, and did not have a problem finding a site. About half of the sites were in use. Our site was mostly level, and easy to back into. The camp host was very helpful. There is a 1 mile (each way) hike from the campground through woods and meadows to the Beringer Cabin. There is a much shorter (though less interesting) drive to the cabin. - ShoreXplorers

Absolutely gorgeous country. Heavily forested. Verdant green, rolling hills, picturesque farms and valleys wherever you look. Silent: no road noise, no trains. Colder than we realized in May: thunder, hail and rain showers.
Typical older NPS campground. Only A loop has sites big enough for RVs, only two were close to our size, 43'. (B and C loops were closed and might not open this year according to the host).
No hookups, no showers. Water is available and there is a dump station. The sites are narrow but not close together, narrow roads are paved. No AT&T or OTA TV, told Verizon works fine.
Lots of ticks in the woods, so inspect dogs and people constantly. - bobcovey

This is one of the old-fashioned National Park campgrounds that seems like it was created around the time that the Blue Ridge Parkway was built after the Great Depression. The roads and the campsites are narrow with no overflow parking, which means you must be able to fit your entire camping rig in the length of the driveway. It is beautiful, it is quiet (unless your neighbors are running a generator), and there are lovely places to hike. There was some cell phone voice and data coverage and a campground host. Some of the sites are reservable, while others are not. We were able to fit our 30' fifth wheel in a larger pull-through spot by backing into it. However, many of the sites would not accommodate our size or our slides. After a glass of wine and a beer, it was a beautiful place to stay and listen to the birds. There are not many services, but for $19/night it was worth it. - JBick

We visited New River State Park with five other families for Easter Weekend. Our group included travel trailers and tents. The campground was well maintained and the facilities were wonderful. The bathrooms were clean and warm. The showers had good pressure and hot water. Out site had full utilities and worked well. The campground host was friendly and helpful. The campground sits atop a hill and is a distance from the New River. You can drive or hike to the river. The hike is not too steep, but is about a mile. The Hickory and River Run trails make a nice loop that starts and ends near the park office. The There is a small museum/gift shop located near the campground that is worth a visit. Our only concern was the one way direction of the road made pulling into our site (19) rather difficult. We needed to go in the other direction to navigate the turn. Overall, we truly enjoyed our visit and the proximity to other activities. We will return. - dmaerz

The park was nearly empty when we were there...out of 20 campsites, only one other one was occupied. But it felt safe and we loved our time here. Spent 4 days just being outside, exploring the park and trails, and enjoying a little solitude in nature. No playground for kids, but they had fun exploring the surrounding woods. The park office has a small museum about the area that's entertaining and informative. The only drawbacks were no laundry facilities and the long drive into town for groceries. - lg_77

We live close by to this park and frequently go here for the night for some fun family time. This park is a gem as far as state parks are concerned. The sites are well maintained and very spacious. Each site offers a large patio area with a picnic table and a fire ring. The park itself is lovely and a great option for those looking for relaxing hikes, canoeing, and fishing. I can't think of anywhere else that offers more for your money. - McNeills

One you come here you won't stop coming here! Twin Rivers is a beautiful campground. Although the cell phone service is little to none, and there is limited wifi, the things to do are endless! You can kayak, tube, bike, or walk down to where the south and north fork of the new river meet! We have been many times and will continue to go!
The view that you get at any of the sites are breathtaking and never get old. This campground is very family friendly. The staff is wonderful!!! - Kaylee1

Right on the river. Great place to tent camp. Bring tubes (for the river). Lots offer some shade. Sites are grass and feature a picnic table. - Zomb

Twin Rivers is just awesome for families, for relaxing and enjoying nature. The river is great for canoeing, kayaking, tubing, wading and fishing. Perfect for kids. Full on weekends, quiet and peaceful on weekdays. The managers are fantastic folks and go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and comfortable. - marshavon

Small but very pretty park about 15 mi from Interstate and conveniences. Paved sites that back up to trees, although some are close to roadway. You may hear some traffic noises early in the morning but didn't bother us. About half of the sites seem to be water/electric and rest are rustic. Bath houses but no showers, modest but clean. Cell reception is nonexistent. No cable TV but we saw some satellite dishes. No WiFi either, although description says there is. We contacted Forest Service who said the RV sites are reserved by going to Reserve America and some of the rustic sites are on there too, I think. Rest are first-come basis. If you don't have a reservation you can check with the camp host. No guarantees, but when we were there it was not completely full. Says big rigs not suitable, but I would add that any rig over the 35 ft range would have issues. All sites are back-in. They do have a separate driveway for your vehicle, however. It is a very quiet, peaceful place with a pretty creek running alongside and some trails running through it. No fancy stuff, just a back to nature kind of place. - Carolina Travelers

The park is small, quiet, clean, and well laid out. Nicely shaded with easy access to towns, highways, attractions. A famous hiking trail is accessible directly from the campground. The camp host is very helpful and knowledgeable; he is also very watchful, in a quiet, non-intrusive way. I stayed about 10 days...hated to leave. Oh! There is NO TV or cell reception, but has great Internet! I can't wait to return. The camp host helps pick the best site for you & your rig. They are not all level, but very manageable. - Linda 2

Previous post was correct except you can use the showers at the nearby Hurricane Campground, no charge, if you are staying at another forest service park. - Travelingjim!

We just love this campground for all the wonderful trails, waterfalls, sliding rock and cool swimming holes. We reserved site #49 and it long enough for my 35' travel trailer, two F250 trucks and a minivan parked in front of it. The sites on the B-loop are EW and spaced apart. Some sites are new the creek that runs though the B-loop. NC State parks added an access road at the other end of the main campground road to allow after hours access only to the campground after the main park entrance is locked. - NC RV Travler

2nd visit here. Great place to camp with your dog. We were in site 57 which was close to a trail that runs along the creek. Widows Creek Falls was a cool place to visit in the park with temps in the 90s at the campground. - jrackley

The park is nice, sites are spacious with a large tent pad/patio, but not much shade. The roads are narrow and two ways. Our site pitched heavily to one side making it hard to level side to side (thank goodness for automatic jacks). It was quiet. We had no cell or internet service. The trails were well marked and well maintained. There is a Dollar General about 2 miles from the park. - winnie1
