Great for overnight - new section has great pull-thru pads. Moderate room to maneuver. Wifi very weak but cable was good. Very reasonable. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Awesome place for quick overnight stay just off I-81. Very neat and clean park. Pull through spaces were very long gravel with lots of grass around. We are 44' plus a car and had plenty of room. Easy to maneuver roads. Both shaded and open spaces. We asked for open so we could get satellite and the spot was perfect. Very nice people. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

In my opinion this is a great park for anyone heading north or south. It is quick and easy to get to from the interstate. The parks current owner has owned it for the last 17 years and he is constantly upgrading the park and maintaining it at a high level. Great signage to let you know where the park and office are located. Office staff was extremely polite and helpful. Road in was paved, wide, no overhanging trees and easy to navigate. Mainly pull through sites that are easy to get into and out of. Our site #21 was gravel, reasonably level, all utilities were conveniently located and it was long enough that I did not have to unhook our car. Good site separation. Some sites have more shade than others. Cable was a big plus. Verizon cell and internet services were adequate. We would definitely stay here again, for an overnight or even longer. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very convenient for one night stay. Easy on/off from highway. Easy to pull in and set up, and enjoyed seeing farm animals grazing on hillsides surrounding RV Park. RV sites were close together but clean and easy hook ups. If we were staying in area longer, would choose nearby RV park, Pioneer Village, which is very beautifully landscaped but not as convenient for overnight stay.

Well maintained park. Good interior roads, great signage to let you know where park, and office is located. Quick and easy to get to from interstate. A lot of pull through sites. Sites are level and long enough so you don't have to unhook. Utilities are convenient and worked like they were suppose to. Some sites are shaded so you don't get satellite but staff is knowledgeable about which sites get signals. We didn't use cable, but it is also available. Wifi was very slow. This is a great little park, and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Couldn't find a place in the area. Called and the very nice young woman said don't worry I'll get you a spot for tonight. And she did. Extremely nice people as were the other campers. Place was packed. Extremely foggy in the morning in June so plan for that. Good interior roads. Close to two major highways. Cable was great lots of channels. Site level on gravel with a big tree & table. NOTE: no trees in New section. Sparkling pool I did not use. I will come back. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Always stay here on our way north or south. Great little campground. Mostly pull thrus, great laundry, and good ice cream at office/store. Lots of clovers and the grass usually needs cut, but they are always cutting it! We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great park. Quiet. Cows and sheep on surrounding properties. So much room to run your dog. Friendly folks. RV parts, and ice cream novelties at the office. Clean laundry. Gravel sites, all pull-throughs, took two tries to find the best level. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Utilities, including WiFi with our amplifier, worked well and were in the right position. Site was level and easy to access. Site 13 gave clear access to satellite for TV purposes, but some sites do not. Staff efficient, courteous, and helpful. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

What a delightful small park. I would go back to visit in a heartbeat. The office has a nice selection of beer and North Carolina wines. Pool was great and we had it to ourselves. Plus it was heated! Lots are very generous. We stayed in a 40" motor coach and our son has a 45' toy hauler. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Site 3 was level, solid and roomy. There was plenty of space to walk our dog. The facilities worked perfectly. The only negative I can think of is that there were no hooks in the shower area to hang clothes, towels or shower items. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in early March. The temps were in the 20's, so we followed staff advice not to leave our hoses out at night to prevent freezing. We stop here 2-3 times a year. It is a convenient breaking point on our way to visit family. The campground is clean enough and convenient to I-81. Staff have always been welcoming and competent. A good spot for getting off the road. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

We pulled in to avoid an early spring snowstorm. The staff is friendly. The sites are all pull thrus and long enough to leave the car on the dolly behind a 35' RV. Minimal leveling is required. The utilities are placed well and easy to use except the sewer hookup was angled making it hard for the fluids to properly flow. The are a lot of cable channels. The WiFi is acceptable and there is a table at each site. Propane is available. We suspect it is really nice when you can use the pool and the leaves are out. The sites are close to each other but not unbearably so. We would come back again. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Ft Chiswell is a regular stop for us, usually for 2 nights, as we head south or north on I-81 and I-77. The check-in staff is always pleasant and accommodating, and the sites are easy to reach with even the largest rigs. Our pull-through site this visit was on the upper side with a concrete slab that almost made leveling unnecessary. The utilities were well placed and easy to reach for hooking up. We do prefer the lower section though, where the pull-through sites are a little wider, but with no slabs. The water on that side was shut off due to extreme low temps this trip, so we opted for the other section where insulated water taps were available. We didn't use the free WiFi or cable this time, although they have worked satisfactorily in the past. Our AT&T and Verizon cell signals were strong, and our site had a good satellite view. We will be back on our next trip by. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Wytheville, VA is just a few miles away with many restaurants and stores. For a quick meal, there's a Denny's at the Flying J you pass just before getting to the park. The Flying J also has a Blue Beacon truck wash if you need to clean road salt, etc. off your rig.

Like many visitors, we just stayed overnight. Since it's a pretty big park and caters to overnight stops, and it was mid-October, we almost didn't make a reservation but it's a good thing we did! The park was full by early evening. The section of pull-throughs we were in had very tight sites, fine for overnight but not much more than that. Another section had sites that looked almost twice as wide. Our site also had a steep incline at the beginning, then a level concrete pad for our motorhome, then uphill again at the the end. There's a nice grassy field for walking dogs. Both Verizon and AT&T worked well. We'd definitely stay again for an overnight stop, or maybe a longer visit in one of the wider sites.
