13 RV Parks near Pulaski, Virginia
May 2016 - $25.00
If you are looking for a great little park on a beautiful but small lake. This is the place for you. Now a few words of caution. Big rigs will not be able to get into it. One review says a 35 foot fifth wheel made the turn down the hill into the park. He was probably a very seasoned driver. The road from downtown Pulaski goes through a residential area that goes up a big winding hill and the road is very narrow. Once you get past the residential area it's another 6 miles to the campground at the most 35 mph. AT&T cell service is none existent but I'm told that Verizon works sometimes. Obviously there is no WIFI. The park has about 2 dozen Canadian geese year round and they are noisy and very messy, pooping everywhere. Another issue is that some of the locals that come in for the weekend and bring their dogs do not leash them. We found some of these dogs are big and act aggressive. They also do not clean up after them either. So if you want to stay here do it Monday and leave Thursday or Friday. We liked the park and the restrooms were clean and the staff friendly. This lake has a boat launch area but only trolling motors are allowed. They are limited on large campsites and you cannot make reservations. It is a first come first serve park. When we were there it is cash only. Outside of the no cell or WIFI we enjoyed our 4 night stay here. Our site was long enough for our 32 foot trailer and crewcab F250. It was a gravel site but pretty level. - Bill from Texas

This park is beautiful especially during the week when they have fewer campers. Only 5 people using it for most of the week we were here. Locals fill it up pretty good on the weekends. Lots of small campers and tents. The park is about 30 minutes from any stores or services. That 30 minute drive from Pulaski is on roads that are pretty narrow. It would be tough in many spots to pass another larger RV without slowing to a crawl (if at that). Just before you get to the campsites, is a very steep left turn and you need to take care not to run into a ditch. Our 5th wheel is 32 feet and someone with a 35 foot 5th wheel made it in also. I'm told they don't get many motorhomes due to length. All that being said, I think we liked the park more than any other we have been in. It's a beautiful place. - srfnut

Because we live nearby, we have camped here many times. It's a beautiful and peaceful campground that is pretty much out in the middle of nowhere. The sites are generally spacious and level, and include a concrete pad, fire ring and picnic table. There is one bathhouse in the campground which is very old but is adequately clean. Metal fishing boats are available to rent for a small charge. There is a playground for the kids but no swimming area or other amenities. Although it's a lovely campground, unless you enjoy fishing there's really not much to do here but enjoy the scenery. - kitten4762

Great campground with easy interstate access for our road trip. It was nice to see an actual person in the guard shack at night, rather than messing with registration envelopes. We stayed on the B loop without hookups. You don't get to choose your specific site until you get to the park, but apparently that is changing in March 2018. Very quiet at night and no flooding problems despite persistent rain. Bathrooms were a little dated but kept clean. Nice to have a dish sink and grey water dump at the bathhouse. Individual shower rooms had a few bugs but the water was nice and hot. - RVNed

Really nice State Park in Southwestern Virginia. Even with a reservation you choose your own site and all of them - on the Water/Elec "D" loop anyway - are very spacious, level, well kept and private. There are a number of nice back in sites and plenty of huge pull-throughs.
We were not here 5 mins before the camphost came over and welcomed us.
Lots of trees, but our rooftop SAT still worked and there is both Verizon and ATT cell/broadband service. No wifi anywhere, however.
The bathrooms are old, but pleasant places that are spotless and kind of "summer campy" in look.
We stayed only for the night so we don't know what the lake or the rest of the park looks like. But this park just a couple of miles off of I-81 is a gem. - Creativepart

Wow. Fabulous. Sites are huge, trees, wide, pea gravel with borders, Level. Lantern hangers, friendly people. The lake is long and interesting, beach for swimming, fishing, boat rentals. Rented a pontoon boat for the day, good price and excellent service. Highly recommend. Shower free, clean and hot water. Cabins available are resort like, would be a great place for a large family reunion. WiFi and cell spotty but come in enough to make communication very doable. Loved this place. - ppcoops

We used to stay here when it belonged to Passport America so never paid more than $15. Now it's $28 for the cheapest sites. The faucet was faulty, grass overgrown, ant hills everywhere, electric supply very poor and we had to use gas for our fridge and hot water. The location is nice even though under the interstate bridge but convenient and the town was pleasant and close for meals. Fuel price was ok. This place has really gone downhill though and is poor value for money in our opinion. - Lyndajw

The biggest problem with this place is that they are not truthful about the place when I phoned in advance and the people on site know nothing about RV camping. The website posts a log cabin that doesn't exist. Most of the river sites were taken by long termers and none could accommodate a Class A. It really is a gas station with sloppy sites almost directly underneath Route 81 overpass. It is noisy, dirty and hard to access. - CaptainRV

This is not a destination park, but is very convenient for a stopover along I-81...it's literally under an I-81 overpass. It's right on the river and the store is well stocked and includes a sit down deli with homemade BBQ pork which smelled wonderful. It's a Passport America park. I only gave it a 5 because it's a little noisy from the proximity to the interstate and because there are no amenities. I'd stay here again, though, on my way through Virginia! - RVerMJ

I stayed at this campground just passing through on my way to North Carolina from Michigan. The first thing that struck me about this campground was the long, long, long hill you have to climb to get to it. There's a tiny building at the top of the hill where the camp hosts will meet you and check you in. They led me to my site and when they asked if I needed anything else,I said that the site wasn't quite level And I wondered if they had something else. Since I was just there for the night I didn't want to bother with leveling when I wasn't even disconnecting from my vehicle. Instead of offering to move me to one of the other many spots they were open, they told me that it was not a big deal that I was level enough. It was a big enough deal that I did level. They told me that they recommended that I put water in my tank rather than use the outside hose because it was predicted to get quite cold that night. I did as they suggested and they were right. It got down to 19° and I did have a freeze. Luckily no damage was done but it was quite frustrating. It did allow me to check out their bath house which was very nice and clean. The campground is in a lovely setting with huge green space, the size of several football fields, with a big pavilion and a long, lovely walk around the creek and a pavilion and play area, however the campsites themselves are right on top of each other with no trees or anything to separate them. The utilities were easy to use, although I didn't use the sewer because I was just passing through for the night and didn't need it. They had cable but I could not get it to work, I don't know if it was my hook up or what but that did not work for me. They had Wi-Fi and I was able to use that. - Donna In GR

Nice sized pull thrus, level side to side, includes cable tv, decent wifi. Really nice looking campsite with a creek running across the back. Only negative is highway noise but that quiets down at night, never stopped us from sleeping. Nice camp hosts, will lend you cable for tv if you don't have one.
Nicely located for side trips sight seeing and shopping for necessities. - papaken

This is a very good park in a rural setting just off I-81. Reception was friendly and efficient. FHU pull thru site was plenty long, gravel, with a small concrete patio and picnic table. Site was well shaded, utilities very good including an impressive cable lineup. WIFI a bit slow. Bathrooms/showers were very clean and the laundry quite satisfactory. Access thru park and site was easy. - whodat

Some Gravel sites, some concrete. Easy in and out. Basic campground with grass and picnic table and pool. Nice little park. Would stay again for sure. Stayed two nights waiting for weather to calm. - User3274

Loved this park. The location is great, tucked away in a quiet area surrounded by trees. Our site was great, easy in and out, very spacious with great power supply.
The staff was friendly. The park immaculate even in December and the cell reception and wifi worked fine. - Two Dogs and an RV
Nov 2016 - $44.00
All gravel roads with some ruts and pot holes. The small sites had concrete pads, but the pad where we were was on the pinacle of a small hill, so the pad was flat but you had to climb up to it and climb down when leaving it, making it impossible to unhook or hook up a tow vehicle when parked. Utility hookups were good (although spaced fairly far apart), there was a picnic table, but if there had been motor homes in the adjacent sites, it would have seemed "crowded". Internet was spotty and not much use. - Don Gagnon

This is a very laid back, relaxing place to stay. The owner/operator is friendly and didn't bother you. Rules were reasonable. We were there late in the season, so the park wasn't very busy. The pool was closed. Laundry facility was excellent with newer washer/dryers. They have a arcade with a batting cage and a 6 lane bowling alley (for a fee) that was very nice. Pizza available with delivery to your RV. Nice wooded spaces on the back of the park. In the front of the park sites were much closer together but they seemed to be used for RV's that were just stopping for the night. Bathrooms and showers were well maintained and clean. Camp store was well stocked with reasonable prices. - Margie H

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

Mostly for tubers and fishers, but suited us just fine because we typically don't use the facilities - just the hookups and later, the Dumping station. It was difficult to move a big RV around after using the dump station - just not enough turn radius. I wouldn't say the restrooms and shower were dirty...just looked like they were 100 years old - stained and rusted (looked pretty bad). But truly, not dirty. Nice staff and a beautiful location for a peaceful stop.
You are pretty far from the nearest grocery store or anywhere to eat. - C and K on the Road

Loved this park! It is small and really a destination park, not a place to overnight, though we did overnight there to visit friends in Blacksburg. Our site backed up to the New River. It was peaceful and lovely. Good electric and water. Dump station but no sewer hookups. The campground is also a tubing company and most people seem to come there for river activities. There are a lot of tent campers, so be advised that the air will be smoky. The Wi-Fi signal was strong, but I was unable to connect, leaving me to believe their server was down. I did get a marginal 3G signal on Verizon and a usable 1X signal for tethering my netbook so I didn't miss the Wi-Fi. The young woman in the office is delightfully friendly. The campground is quite a bit off the beaten path. - Road Princess

We paid Passport America rate. Campground is right on the New River, great for fishing and tubing. Sites are very narrow the 6 RV sites with gravel are level. Campground is very clean and well maintained. Water pressure was great, over the air TV reception is spotty due to mountains. Owner was very helpful and accommodating. Train noise was not a problem, we hardly even heard it after the first night. Would stay here again!! - 20andOut

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
Jun 2010 - $28.00
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

I was actually staying at Gentry's Landing for a short visit with my family who are long time campers. I was very impressed with the care given to the property. The grounds were kept neat and clean and it was a very peaceful visit. This is why I have the picture from the campsite overlooking New River as my computer wallpaper. I hope to return there someday to be a longtime "camper" myself. The caretakers do not allow rowdiness and seem to really "take care" of the property.
The only complaint is the fact that the highway is very close and the trains coming through the area on the other side of the river. Of course, these are things that the campground have no control over (short of constructing a sound wall). Everyone assures me that once you are there for any length of time, the positive qualities of the campground make up for the noise. - Margaret E

Gentry’s Landing, Narrows, Virginia- This is a very small overnight type campground owned by the Lions Club of Narrows, VA. It is situated on the New River and is extremely picturesque. The New River is a premier fishing and rafting river that flows from South Carolina up into West Virginia. Almost all sights are seasonal sites. There are 5 sites available for nightly rental with full hook-ups (30 amps) and cable TV. We stayed here 6 nights at a nightly cost of $19. The campground is located about 17 miles east of Princeton, WV off (on) US 460. Since it is immediately off of US 460, you’ll hear highway noise. The bathrooms are VERY clean. No Wi-Fi is available. I went into Narrows next to the MacArthur Hotel to make a connection. If you’re looking for camping in Bluefield or Princeton, WV, there isn’t any. This and Pipestem State Park are as close as you’ll be able to get. This is a very good lay over type campground at a reasonable cost. We'd stay here again. - DelArmy
