We stayed here for labor day weekend, it's a nice quiet, small campground. I had my 3 grandchildren with me so we were a little worried about the lack of things for them to do but they had a great time. They played on the playground the entire time and made friends with other children who were camping there. The WIFI was great and I'm glad it was because cell service is not very good. The owners were very friendly, the facilities and the grounds were very clean. There was a nice little general store about 3 miles away that had everything we needed. We camped at Smith Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Smith Mountain lake was about a 40 minute drive away, but well worth it. Nice clean beach and a great little snack bar

Nice quiet campground. At $25 a night, I was very pleased. No real amenities & nothing really to do, but we just wanted a base to get into Roanoke so it worked for that. Sylvia, the owner, was very friendly & open to any suggestions a camper may have. We camped at Smith Mountain Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a small campground but, very neat. Our campsite only had 30 amp service and it required some additional leveling with boards we always carry but it worked out nice. Everything worked out and we stayed an extra day. Fish pond was fun but, it is catch and release. Good staff, we would stay here again if the occasion arises. Dumpsters are not on site. It's a pretty good ways to grocery and supply stores. We camped at Smith Mountain Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground in a rural setting. Owners friendly and helpful. Level gravel sites. Water pressure and quality is good. No cell service. A few drawbacks: Signage at entrance is hard to see until you are passing the entrance. We had to unhook the toad in the middle of the road to back up to the entrance. Thankfully, it is a very rural setting. Sewer connections are too high, allowing very little if any fall from the outlet on the RV. Having said that, we would stay again if in the area.

Great potential, nicely laid out. But that being said, the owners have not camped. There is no laundry at this VERY RURAL place. It is quiet all week except on Saturday night there was a D.J. playing inappropriate family songs for three hours. The owners were not around. They were not around on Sunday. This has potential but needs a presence with people familiar with camping and RV resorts. We camped at Smith Mountain Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The owners were verrrrrrry nice and responsive. The bath and shower facilities were exceptionally clean but may not be enough when the park is full or above 75% filled. Ran out of hot water one evening. The sites are nice sized but not level so bring some levelers. Sewer hook up was difficult and it stretched my 20 ft hose to the max. No Wi-Fi or cable TV but we were able to get 8-10 channels using antennae. It is in a rural location and surrounding area is rural. 15 miles from a Wal Mart but not hard to find. Not much to do in the area so better have a purpose for coming here. It's about 45 minutes drive to Smith St Park for swimming etc.. For the price it was a pleasant experience and we will stay here again. We camped at Smith Mountain Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I believe we were the second campers to camp here when the park opened and we go back whenever we get a chance.This is our favorite local campground. The owners are super nice. The park is beautiful, very clean. My husband loves to fish here he caught a 10 pound large mouth bass in the fishing pond.There is also a nice playground for our grandchildren when they come. We camped at Smith Mountain Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a new RV park on the south side of Smith Mountain Lake. The park is immaculate. The setting is beautiful and quiet. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Satellite TV reception is good here. There are boat rental facilities nearby so you can enjoy the beautiful lake. We will come back here again.

This is a beautiful new park truly nestled in the hills. Picnic tables, grills, wide spaces and very friendly owners. Although it is out of the way, we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Smith Mountain Campground in a Motorhome.
