Beautiful wooded shady campground with many open non-reserved sites the whole three days we were there. If you reserve a specific site in advance be careful which site you choose - most are not level or big rig friendly. Could also be a challenge driving up the winding mountainous road - check in advance. Sites have electric & water - TV reception spotty. Bring all your supplies - nothing nearby. The park itself, the hiking trails, the Appalachian Trail and of course the wild ponies are more than enough reason to make the trip up the mountain - heaven on earth! - Breezy2

Called to arrive during the week in mid July, no same day reservations, told to drive the winding mountain road on up to be greeted with a drive up reservation fee, tourist tax, pet fee, price jumped from $24 to $38.50 for water and 30 amp electric site. Choice of 3 remaining sites. Tried all 3, very unlevel even for 31' motorhome. Ended up with front wheels off the ground to level. None on the sites are big rig friendly. Small sites very close together, no privacy or quiet. No TV, satellite, due to heavy tree cover, or AT&T cell phone. Many low trees hanging over roadways rub the RV from top and sides. Dirty restrooms and showers. This place was full of family campers. Many vehicles jammed into small sites. Not a nice restful escape we were seeking. Will not return. - davidm99

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!

Quiet, wooded, mountain setting 9 miles clear of any cell reception. This is truly an escape from civilization! Great motorcycle roads, Appalachian trail, clean facilities and privacy makes this an ideal getaway. - Winderbill

Cut off -- and loved it! If you need to continually check your email and Facebook, this is *not* the place for you. There is *no* cell coverage (voice or data) available in the park. You'll need to drive 5-10 miles out, in order to get a signal. Sites are all back-in and most will need (at least) minimal leveling. As other reviews point out, the Groundhog Den loop is closest to the road, but it is a mountain road with minimal traffic -- we never noticed. Sites are all heavily wooded -- lots of choices for hanging the hammock. Sites have electric (30amp) and water with good pressure. Bath houses (2 per loop) are small and dated, but were clean an functional. Camp hosts were highly visible throughout our stay. There's a play area and wading pool and 2 hiking trails in in the campground. We camped over the 4th of July holiday and temperatures were 10-15F cooler than in Damascass -- we never used the A/C. We stayed in Grindstone primarily for the VA Creeper Trail. * Price includes $3 online reservation fee. - ricks99

We 'camped' in 40+ foot motorhome over July 4. There are bigger sites that accommodate this size unit. It is splendid at this campground. We used one AC, instead of all 3, because of 30amp power, but no more was needed; its cool up there. We camped in Cottontail, sites bigger, quieter there, away from a little road noise. Access to the Mount Rogers trail is right there, but does need some maintenance on this trail, some overgrowth of vines for a stretch. But, this doesn't distract from cg. Hosts are very nice, always accessible. We love it there, the elevation in the summer makes it a pleasant experience. - elainev

We have been coming here for years and will continue to visit a couple times a year. The best sites are: 3, 12, 7,9,10. - Robert_Gail

This is one the nicest State Parks we've visited. As others have stated it's small. It's very nicely maintained. Our Camp Host was friendly. It's one of the few State Parks we've stayed at with full hook up. Gorgeous area. There is some road noise from 221 if you're near the top of the park but it wasn't terrible. Certainly the nicest bathhouse I've seen at State Park. It's an easy drive down to a nice day area by the river. We'll be back! - skiles

One of the cleanest and best maintained state parks we have ever visited. We reported an issue with the bathroom water heater and they had a crew working on it within hours.
The park staff and the camp host were friendly and helpful.
We tubed the New River twice and kayaked it while there, and also drove over to Stone Mountain State Park to hike the upper loop trail. - Red Wolf

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

We will camp here again. Start with 10, then -1 poor in campground signage, -1 poor campground roads, -1 poorly marked sites, -1 poorly marked/oddly spaced hookups, -1 web site says wi-fi, but only available at camp store, -1 bathhouse 1/4 mile from trailer camp, -1 too few showers/toilets,-1 wi-fi signal not dependable-tested .3 down, .1 up (megs) when working. +1 no night lighting in trailer camp. This is a unique campground. Beautiful night sky set on a wooded ridge and renting bikes @ $15 to ride trail. Very laid back guy around the store (managing or running is too strong). They prefer cash. Plenty of hot water for returning Creeper Trail riders. 6 of us rode trail while the 7th took our truck into town to return riders and bikes. Campground has bikes on demand for $15. Roads to camp are good. Roads in camp are poor and steep and narrow and begging for grading and stone. Sewer connections very difficult to find as grass grows over them. I found 3 sites with WES, there may be more. About 10 are WE. Hook up services good. Dump site is on the ridge, too. Sites are not assigned-pick your own. There is no check in procedure and no rules sheet. First priority is growing Christmas Trees. 2nd is tent camping near the store for lots of Boy Scouts and youth groups riding the trail. Third priority is trailer camping which is 1/4 mile away from camp store and tents. We did not see big rigs. Road layout allows always driving forward so if a big rig can handle the roads and hills, the campground can handle the rig. - Frank Rader

This campground is located on the trail head of the Virginia Creeper (rails-to-trails) near the top of the mountain (3500'+ elev.). Getting there challenged our GPS as we ended up missing a critical turn and found ourselves towing our fifth wheel up a gravel, one-lane road across the ridge. Without 4-wheel drive we would not have made it. If the GPS liked us, we would have been on paved road all the way to the campground. The campground is rustic in nature and our site was on a newly cut of mountain. It overlooked the office. Check in and VERY friendly and easy - the owner is a nice, older guy. Our site was a pull through with water and electricity (thought it was 30 amp but the breakers were only 20 amps). Water pressure was low but of good quality. The site stills needs a 'finish' grade to get it more level (needed a LOT of planks to get the fiver level). It hadn't been mowed in some time making our site more of a field. The view was very nice. We were one of two campers in the whole place. So the night was very quiet and the stars were out in full force. Used the fire ring for S'mores. Leaving the next day, the exit road was very rutty and it was a slow go. Overall, this campground is perfectly placed for Virginia Creeping. It's not really close to anything else, so pack in whatever you need. The campground need some TLC and grooming but it will do for a night. Little pricey at $35.00/nite but there's no close competition so c'est la vie. - Owlet

This is a nice park and convenient. Not many open sites since most sites are being used by permanent campers. Utilities were very good. Our site was not level but we were able to lever using our jacks and no boards. :Park is clean and kept up well. Wifi worked well except at night when many people were on it. TV reception is poor with only a ferw channels available and we could not find any national channels except PBS. We would stay here again. - RayN

The sites are so unlevel that we couldn't get even close to level with our leveling jacks. Be sure to bring leveling blocks. We stayed two nights. The sites are long enough for our big rig and toad. The utilities are well placed and work well. There is no cable TV, and we could only get a few wothless channels on our antenna. The wifi is very good except in the evening when everyone is using it. Most of the sites are occupied by seasonal tenants who have trees. The short term sites are lined up in the center of the campground with no trees or landscaping. While the campground is located in a beautiful area, the campground itself is not very pretty. I doubt that I would stay here again mainly because of the unlevel sites. - FSUWizard

This Park is beautiful, the grounds are very well maintained, and so clean. There are beautiful walking trails. Native wildflowers are allowed to flourish in the green fields which in turn attracts hundreds of butterflies and the nightly show of firefly lights is spectacular. My husband and I visited for 10 days and loved the Park and the West Jefferson/New River area so much we opted for a seasonal site. The fee reflects the monthly rate which is actually lower. The seasonal sites are metered and we pay our own electric which is fine with me. Power is excellent 122 volts/60 hz. Since we are planning on being here seasonally, we had the sewer hard-piped by a very nice local plumber, and it is a blessing. The Park is situated on the slopes of Mount Jefferson which is so beautiful. The mountain views from our coach are incredible. The seasonal Park residents are friendly, everyone waves and stops for a chat. My family has been in the RV Park business for decades and from my own experience I will say that this is the best Campground/RV Park we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The owners and managers are friendly and every detail is attended to. There are also planned activities to enjoy. By the way, this is my first RV Park review and we could not be happier. - Amy Griffith

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

Stayed for 10 days in 42 ft. coach. Park is actually easy walking distance to Blueridge Parkway & an easy entrance to gate from the Parkway. Utilities are good, but wi-fi a little sketchy, as are most rv parks. They do have a weekly rate of $235 & monthly rate of $450 + electric. Stayed in newly developed section which consists of 4 pull-thrus (all packed gravel), front of pull-thru has a bit of forward slant, so if you have some blocks, you will be fine. Pull-thrus will easily accomodate a 45 footer + tow. Closest Walmart is in West Jefferson & if you want to go to Boone, we found the quickest way via Parkway. Also, no problems getting satellite tv. One last thing....entrance to park is a bit on the snug side, so take it nice & slow to avoid scratches on your coach or trailer. Mgt. should really consider cutting back some of the shrubbery. - Smooth Running

Had stayed here several times 10 years or so ago. The trees were grown with a beautiful lineup of well shaped christmas type trees lining the streets. Cash only and no discounts. Site was nice back in with good cable and decent wifi. We stayed for 1 nite only and used none of the facilities except rest rooms and showers. We stayed here in a class B MH with no slides or toads. We would stay here again. - KAZIMIRA
