17 Parks near Meadows Of Dan, Virginia
Sep 2016 - $30.00
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

Although well off the beaten path, and a little hard to find, we enjoyed staying here. The park is being renovated with wider spaces and sewer hookups. It was not crowded over Labor Day weekend and there were hayrides, etc... for the kids to enjoy. They have 3 lakes for fishing and a pool for the kids. The bathrooms had been repaired and were well stocked as well as very neat and clean. If you want to get away from it all, I recommend Deer Run. They also have permanents in a certain area in the rear, but they also seemed to be tidy and quiet hours were adhered to by all. We will stay again! - campfever

This park was just "OK" overall. The staff were friendly and helpful. The park is one of the older ones in VA and you can tell. We stayed at Hungry Mother earlier in the summer and we were quite impressed. This park just wasn't that great. They Lake is a half a mile hike from the campground downhill on a muddy trail. At least it was muddy when we were there. That being said the lake front is nice. The beach area is well manicured and there is a nice section for the kids to play. The platform with diving board was closed while we were there. We were told it was because of the lack of visibility in the water. It's a mountain lake so I'm not sure how great the visibility can be. Anyway, a good place to visit for the day, I wouldn't stay longer than a weekend. - skiles

This is a very nice park. Lots of shade. Sites are very small. Some tent pads are only a few feet from the next. The sites without tent pads (Green card) are some of the smallest. Several sites are not suitable for motorhomes of any size. The water and electric service was good. Our Verizon service was adequate to stream some movies. The sites need some updates. In particular: broken pavement, stumps, roots.
The camp host was very helpful and attentive. Firewood was not available in the campground and must be brought from the park office. The bathhouse has been recently rebuilt and is nice and clean. It did run out of hot water sometimes.
Terrific beach on the lake and good fishing areas. Very pet friendly. Several nice hiking trails. I would go back if I could be sure to get a site suitable for motorhome. - HokieDon

We had water at the site which was fantastic, and the dump station was nearby which made gray water disposal very easy. This park was absolutely beautiful and we had a blast with the kids finding fairy stones (we found a ton). The sites themselves were spaced very well, offered privacy, were easy to pull into, and were clean and orderly when we arrived. The beach area was also fantastic and we enjoyed an entire afternoon splashing around. There are climbable water features, a water slide, diving board, etc. We loved our stay and had a great time during the 3 days we were there. - hojo70

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

Great place. Stayed three nights. Escorted to our site (#14). The scenic view from our campsite was perfect. Lots of room for trailer and truck. Clean; level site; good water pressure; good WiFi; nice restrooms and showers. These folks take pride in this campground. Continues to add and improve amenities. Has many events during the year. About 5 miles outside the city of Floyd, VA. - billydw

My wife and I visited last weekend and had a great experience! I met the owner - nice guy who takes a lot of pride in his place. Everything was very clean and well organized. He escorted us to our lot and assisted in parking my trailer. Full hookups - be sure to bring the extra sewer hose, it's a long run. Water and electricity are very short runs. Wi-Fi was good - not the fastest but not bad. The owner is a retired electrical engineer so he knows how to make it work! There's no pool, dog park, playground or activities director - just a clean, picturesque park. The sites are VERY long and spacious. All have picnic tables and you can borrow a metal fire pit at the store. Firewood, ice and snacks are available too - just put your money in the box. The owner agrees campers are very trustworthy folks. The cool breezes were most appreciated during the hot late July weather! Nearby is the charming town of Floyd, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Mabry Mill, Meadows of Dan, Virginia Tech, and Roanoke is about 45 minutes away. Nice place - will visit again! - JonnieK

Spent two weeks here in a Class-A motorhome with a tow car. The sites are wide and long enough for both with room to spare. Sites are well maintained with grass between. The park is off the beaten path (I-81), but well worth the drive on VA SR8 and a county road (approx. 25 miles). Maybe a little far for an overnight. Only a few miles (4-5) to the Blue Ridge Parkway which is visible from the park. The park sometimes hosts car shows and other festivals in another part of the park consisting of nearly 200 acres, many are wooded. Most of the sites are pull-thru gravel with gravel approach roads and some back-ins. No problem with satellite reception, no cable, full hookup. Spoke with the owner several times who was actively involved. The staff was very friendly and the park was very quiet. We would go stay again. - RV_Jim

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

This park is owned by the local VFW & American Legion. The 50 acre site is home to their local county fair and a number of other regional and local events. The park is well kept, very neat and clean. All the spaces are back in that back up next to the perimeter of the property. If they have a special event going on they would of course be very busy. The night we stayed we were the only rig in the campground. So that made for a very quiet and pleasant stay... At their rate of $30.00 a night its way over priced but it's only a mile and a half from downtown "Mayberry" and all the money you pay goes to support the park along with it's owner's the local American Legion and the VFW.. So we stayed one night instead of two and headed out the next day.. "Mayberry" - happyflyer

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

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
