2 Parks near Salem, Virginia
Jul 2015 - $34.00
Works for an overnight stay. Easy access on and off I-81. You will hear noise from interstate if you're not running your air conditioners. Outside the noise level is bearable. Park layout is good for big rigs, although we did unhook tow car in their large parking lot before parking the 45 foot motorhome on the site. Interior roads and site driveways are gravel and some mud if it has been raining. Sites are close together with some grass between sites. Verizon cell had 3 bars. Free Wi-Fi worked well. We were able to get satellite TV on our site. Some sites you may not be able to get satellite TV because of trees and a hill next to the RV park. - eaglessoc

Pulled in at 7pm. Office was closed but we saw a sign that had after hours pointed to an old mobilehome. Right next to an old camper with door open and trash flowing out. No one came to door when we rang bell "for service" we found park because of write up on Good SAMs app. Didn't feel very safe, it was loud from interstate noise. Cable did work, but big whoop, we were tired. Next morning went to pay at Cavern shop with my Good SAMs card in hand. The desk guy rudely informed me "we don't take discounts of no kind here'" the second staff member walked around corner with his shirt raised rubbing his belly. Class act! - Month long travelers

This is an older park and could use some TLC. The cable TV worked well. We got a good signal on our Verizon Mifi. There are a number of long term stays that left for work early in the morning. The center row of pull throughs are short if you want to stay hooked up and narrow. Depending on how you and the rig next to you are parked, you may not be able to fully extend an awning in these middle sites. We were able to because the rig next to us was at the front of their site and our trailer was at the back of our site. The pull throughs on the right side of the entrance road are very long and a little wider. The sites farthest from the entrance/office are close to the interstate so there is highway noise all the time. The area is surrounded by trees so even the sites with no trees get shade in the morning and afternoon. - trailertraveler

Clean, quiet, affordable and well located for visiting Roanoke and Salem Va. This facility is not a 'destination park'. There are no playgrounds or bathhouses. What you get s a clean, quiet pad sight, (most are level). The park is well maintained, and consists primarily of mobile homes and long term RV residents. RV parking is primarily to the back of the park, along a creek. Note that the creek does occasionally overflow its banks, and if staying in the park in times of extended heavy rain, you will want to keep an eye out for flood warnings and be ready to move you unit to higher ground if warranted.
A few of the RV sites can be a bit tricky to get into, especially for a towable, due to carports and mail boxes placed very near the curb.
Good over the air television and Verizon cell signal. Minimal onsite management presence during our stay. Site had 2 18-24 inch wide concrete strips to park on which were long enough for us to park our 40 ft. - Fan Of The Blue Ridge

This is mainly a mobile home park, with RV sites available. FHU; however, no WIFI or cable. Being right in the mountains, our antenna only picked up 5 channels. We opted to get additional DISH receiver from Camping World, (nearby), for some TV, since we were here for several months working. Very clean park, for RV sites, maintenance does mow for you. Very nice and friendly people here, safe, and in city limits, food delivery, major bonus. Only minutes from I-81. Sites are pretty level and great size with you having an actual yard. Highly recommend over other RV park in area. - S A K

This is primarily a mobile home park with some RV sites. Most of the RV sites are occupied by permanent residents who live here year round; so, available transient sites are limited to about a half dozen. This is one of those places you go to because the other parks in the area are so bad. But the park, all of the homes, and RVs are well maintained. The permanent residents are friendly. One even stopped at the entrance to assist me with unhooking my towed vehicle. You will feel safe here. Although the access road is big rig friendly, it is still about 15 minutes from the interstate. No one is usually in the office to check you in or take telephone calls. You will need to call for site availability and that most likely will result in having to leave a message. They only accept cash or check. There are no amenities which includes there not being a bath house. For your money, one gets a back-in, shade less, long, level, grass site with a concrete patio. The site is FHU, has strong 50A service, and decent space between you and your neighbor. There is no Wi-Fi, but you can receive half dozen OTA TV channels, satellite signal, and strong 3G Verizon cell service. The paved road goes through a portion of the mobile home park, but it is easily navigated. I have used this place a couple of times when passing the area, and will continue to do so. The cost probably should be a bit less for the lack of amenities, but the rating is based on the quality of what I got. - RLM
