The staff that we dealt with were extremely friendly and helpful. The sites were very very close together and the noise from the Interstate was constant because this right by an on/off ramp. The fire pit was minimal and there is nothing for the any kids like a playground or swing set even. The grass was cut and trimmed and the WiFi and hookups worked perfectly. We would stay here again if we were traveling through and needed a spot for a night but it's not really a place you would want to stay for an extended time frame. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Motorhome.

Starting with the good - The wifi works superbly, and the electric, water and sewer hook ups work well. Trash cans were always emptied. Bathroom was clean. The negatives. I've never been anywhere that the sites are this ridiculously close together. The trailers on the long term sites are mostly very run down, however the residents that I spoke with were pleasant. The traffic noise from I-81 is constant, as you would expect from a campground right next to a highway. It rained a lot while we were there and only a few sites have adequate gravel - there was a lot of mud. This isn't so much a campground as a parking stop with good hook ups and wifi. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great for over night stay. Easy access from I-81. The site was pretty level and pull-through. We were happy about that, because who wants to mess around with parking a 36' trailer after 8 hours drive.
Would defiantly stop here again for a night's stay.
Yes, there was some highway noise, but it was OK. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground was overpriced for the amenities. The interior roads are adequate but nothing more. The permanent residents seriously detract from the quality of the campground. The pull-through sites are very narrow but long enough. There is a lot of noise from the nearby interstate. We will return only if there are no other options. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Motorhome.

I have to agree with most of the reviews of this place. It's good for an overnight stay at most and that's it. The sites are very long, but the motor coach that pulled in next to us was so close, we had to close our awning so they could open one of their slides. Many of the "permanent" RVs there are very worn down. You do have the opportunity to explore the caverns on the grounds, but we weren't there long enough to do so. You do get the noise from the highway, but it wasn't too bad while inside. Unless we were in a pinch, we probably wouldn't return. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is part of a "complex" that includes a big gift shop, indoor flea market, cavern tours, and the CG. Unfortunately the campground seems to be an afterthought. Interior roads are poor and several permanent trailers are badly rundown.
That said, it is very convenient for an overnight just below Roanoke. We would probably stay here again if we happen to be going down I-81. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Suggest big rigs unhook tow car in parking lot near the office, before parking your coach. Grocery and big box stores are 5 miles away, as well as fast food and other restaurants.

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! We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Just off I-81 next to Caverns, if you like to see those. Mostly shaded. That's the good of it. Not much in area, sadly. This place is crowded, forget using an awning, and we could not get back slides all out with neighbors slides also being out. Old, not maintained, dirty, and just plain scary. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is right off I-81, very convenient to the freeway. We spent a single night there, without unhitching our 38 foot RV. It is located in a little hollow, filled with hardwoods which must be very pretty in the summer and fall. Pluses: Friendly and helpful staff, long pull thru sites (ours was probably 80 feet long), great WiFi, good cable TV, 50A power. Minuses: very narrow sites (about five feet separated our slides from the neighbor's), freeway noise and a sea of mud created by the rain and melting snow. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

For those of us pulling a long rig with a gasoline powered truck, finding a suitable gas station is a source of anxiety. As you get off I-81, continue past the park entrance a half mile, and you'll find a Citgo station on the left. Just swing in on the outside of the pumps (our F-250's gas cap is on the left) and drive out.

Nice quiet park. Everyone friendly. Good water and electric. Stopped to see the caves on our way north. Gravel sites but level. Some spots are tight but got thru ok. Lots of trees but have cable for tv. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Motorhome.

Compared to some other parks a bit farther north on I-81 this was a bargain. Full hookups, strong WIFI, pull-through sites, lots of cable channels and a discount for the cavern tour convenient to the interstate are all a plus in our book. Some noise from the interstate until after dark and as others have mentioned the sites are a bit narrow but for an overnight stop we thought this was just fine. Very friendly, professional staff. We would make this a regular stop in the future. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Motorhome.

The sights are gravel and level. They are very narrow and short. The restrooms are clean and well maintained. The caverns are right there on the grounds and campers get a discount on the tour. Take the tour it is excellent. The only bad side is road noise from the nearby highway. We would camp here again. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Motorhome.
